Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Topped and created an 8 cola mainline, the overall growth was very nice, but I am at crossroads with these autos, less is more with them. The last run without all this training performed so much better!

Pretty strong / needed to cut way back on the provided feed charts while growing autos

Always Great!

Tents

The buds just never fattened up, these were a bit airy, next time I just let them rip and see how it goes. Started with 540 Grams / Yielded only 102 Grams, was a very tight trim, buds do look very good! I will grow these again, very soon. These buds will cure for another few weeks, the smell is awesome!

Great job!! These look amazing! Bud size may have not been to your liking but I’m sure the quality will still be great! I’ll be growing gelato as well my next grow!:pray::skin-tone-4:

@edaricogardens, Agreed - yield was not up to par but the bud is on point! thanks!

Looks nice and frosty ! How did you find your results topping and mainlining an auto vs just LST? Did you find it created a lot of stress for it or handled pretty well?

Looks like a successful grow to me!

@MrJones, Hmm gotcha! I have always topped autos for some reason, should run one without topping and just lst to compare. I just recently switched from a peat mix with plastic pots to fabric with coco/perlite and love it. I find my plants are able to build bigger root systems and quicker than my old soil setup. Good luck with the ventures sir!

@MicroGrowz, I have been brutal on auto flowers, the ones that grow hard anyway, have to pick and choose your warriors carefully, this plant was topped but not mainlined, you see I let it get 6 nodes, the side branching on the 3rd and 4th node was really nice so I topped above the 4th node, then topped the 2 sides branching there and again on the side branching at the 3 nodes, each one of the 4 side branches produced 2 colas that I fashioned into the manifold look, all this was done before the end of the 4th week, by the end of the 5th week we had flower and the stretch - honestly they looked great but the yield was meh. So I will try the same process in an upcoming Cream mandarin Grow, thinking to grow 2/3 plants in COCO Coir using MEGACROP and see the difference between, I am just not a huge fan any longer of salt-based nutrients. Setting up a drain system to measure run off, PPM, EC seems like a pian, but nothing ventured nothing gained.
