Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Fast and sticky. They dry smoke is not too harsh. Strong head/eye buzz, hits pretty quick. Definitely a good body stone but no couch lock. Extreme cotton mouth and red eyes. We did over indulge a little though. I think this is going to be a great party weed. We will see Independence Day.

This girl was easy from seed to harvest. The only issue was over feeding early on. After cutting back to half strength she took off and at week 6 I went to full Strength bloom nutes and she took it like a champ. I only flushed 4 days. She was very sticky, my wife was cleaning scissors non-stop while I was wet trimming.

Grow Questions
DJKY71 week 3 started grow question 2 months ago
Curled/spotted leaves
These are the first two plants I’ve ever grown. Just doing it off the cuff with what I have available here at the farm. So I don’t know what the yellow spot on the one leaf and the curl at the edge of another on the GSC is. Any advice?

Hey buddy :-) your plant looks great :+1:. A little dark but nice :-) do the next two pourings without feed, and then start again with half the dose :+1:

Auto defoliate work?
So I went ahead and defoliated my two autos. I got conflicting advice but all three agreed it could increase yield with healthy plants and good timing. Question: Do these look hurt by my chopping 3 days ago? They never dropped and look healthy to me.

Ofcourse it hurts. A few more days, she will compensate.

After injusry, plants releases signal hormone call jasmonic acid. Cannabis goes into repair and prevention mode. Plants build more cell and increase size incase something ever attack her again. This takes one or two weeks to do. After the set up, these extra capacity has nothing to do, so they turn into grow big mode.

In a week, you will be able to see the benefit of cropping and triming.

Well worth it. After a couple of rounds, you will know what to expect.

Cheers,

When to flush
It’s getting late in my first game and I sure don’t want to screw anything up if I can help it. This Fast GSC Auto is living up to her name. Starting third week of flowering. When should I flush? Thanks for the advice!!

Get a jewelers loop look for about 70%milky trichomes and 30% clear to begin your flush. Harvest at 20-30% amber and your golden!!! Happy growing!

Exposed roots?
Is it okay for the tops of the roots to show like this? Do I need to add more soil? Best guess is that she will be cut in 10 or 12 days

Nothing to worry about here, as you can see the exposed roots have "woodened" and have protected themselves. You can add soil but this is pretty common as plants get near the end of their cycle, most of your soil is a root sponge now anyways.
Judging from your pictures as well, I'd think you have longer than 10 days, the pistils are still "fluffy" and calyx's haven't started to swell yet.

Ready??
Okay, I know I’ve been told not to be impatient, but this girl is looking awfully ready to me. The breeder said 50 to 60 days from germination to harvest. It has been 65. Do y’all think I would be okay to put her in the dark a couple of days and cut her?

looks like the pistils are still mostly white.. i would wait a bit longer ..are the trichomes milky ? some amber ? if no it's too soon :wink:
JP148 answered grow question 2 weeks ago
Like stated you will need more then 10 days. I wouldn’t even consider what the breeders state for grow days. Those are figured with total optimum conditions. All variables will effect grow rate. Initial seed potential, nutes, temp.and most importantly light. Since growth of autos are so fast I think they are more sensitive to all variables. As for harvest I go along with “The Canna Prophet “ s suggestion of 5-10% amber. I start final flush when just all milky.
TheCannaProphet answered grow question 3 weeks ago
Have taken a look at the tricomes? Clear/Milky ratio? Are your girls still stacking? I'm seeing a lot of white pistils. I generally like about 5-10% of the tricomes on the majority of the plant to be amber, the rest milky. When they reach the point where all tricomes are milky and I'm starting to see some amber show I move them to dark for 48 then harvest. Hope this helps....Grow Strong!

Curing?
Okay guys my last question for these guys. When curing do you put your Boveda packs in the jars immediately or give it some more drying time first?
