Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This is just a pure amazing to grow , very easy and very forgiving , I didn't have the best of runs with these girls all my fault.. newbie grower frist time ... a lot to learn and a lot learnt from the plants and how they behave , certain signs that give off how the plant is was amazing to get the grips off ... this strain is amazing in all its right very heavy stone, very good flavour but the resin production is unstoppable the thing is like a disco ball up close with the amount of tricomes on the flower site's was amazing and very sticky come harvest , like the crystal candy Xl auto I harvested frist is curing now with a lovely smell very sweet and woody bit earthy up close but the cured stuff is very sweet in smell and very easy smoke on the chest .
10 out of 10 for this strain

Nutrients

Brilliant brand would recommend to use 1/2 The recommended amount and more PK additive and a drop of about 1/5 the amount of cal mag

Dried wet for the third candy wad 105 grams now it's off to cure this smell quite earthy and woody atm while the other girls now have a very sweet smell coming from it while it cures... 205 grams from 3 plants ... a lot more than I was expecting will give further updates when ready

Very sweet aroma starting to come through even at start of curing this plant smells great already the last plants are really sweet with a very strong stone , leaves you quite stoned and sleep no matter what time of day

Amazing smoke in the end , at the very end of flowering there was a very strong earthy smell and woody times.havr turned to a sweet Carmel sweet tropical smells from her very different than most smoke I've had recently.

Taste 10 / 10
Smoke structure was compact dried on a net though buds are rock hard and are a great size above 10 grams on some main flowers

SilkRoad answered grow question 3 months ago
Actually, it is my first grow too. My children are in their 3rd week. As I see them everyday I think that your plants are in good condition.
I use 18/6 for light.
ph 6.5
and the temperature is between 22-24
my watering volume is 1L per 2 or 3 days.
Do you use any nutrition?
I use Micro/Grow/Bloon from Advanced Nutrition.

I red that the best harvest size for this strain is 450-600 gr/m2

with regards

You can experiment if you really want. I've heard of people doing 24/8 schedules and 20/6... I went with 18/6 and that worked out very well.

I think the most important thing is to keep a schedule. Don't give them 24/0 and randomly decide to shut the lights off for 8 hours.

I've heard of people starting at 20 hours and doing something like giving them 10 minutes of extra darkness every day until the plants finish or you hit 12/12.

Point is: find out what works best for you and don't be afraid to experiment.

Autoflowers are a bit of a wildcard sometimes, so as long as it is happy and healthy, it's as good as it can be. let soil dry a bit between irrigations, fertilize as needed... plants do all the work.

Looks good. LST slows it down a bit but I wouldnt worry. It picks back up. Since your in flower I wouldnt mess with it much more since its an auto. Dont pull leaves in flower, dont LST anymore. It has a large negative impact in overall growth in autos.
Igrowneil answered grow question 3 months ago
Thanks guys there looking amazing today and also there really starting to shoot up about a CM each day but considering I stunned there growth there going good and now giving off quite a strong smell when the fans are off it really starts to give off a really strong smell . Each plant is a few days behide the last one . And proud to say I think I got the hang off watering okay now

Leaves. Curl up

Fruitgrower answered grow question 3 months ago
The ridges on the leaves are curling up because its either too dry in your tent or they are being underwatered, try turning down your exhaust fan or dehumidifier at this stage your RH should be around 40/55% but they still look perfectly healthy and the flowers are growing well :seedling::+1:

Next time I would use a fabric pot for that plant as well... I've completely stopped measuring exact water amounts or planning for a certain day.. with the fabric pots it's really hard to overwater.... You can tell when it's completely saturated from weight and feel... Then you also know when it's empty because it's light as a feather.. I've had no issues since using these

NorthernFrostCannabis answered grow question 2 months ago
Flushing...
I will list some points that not only challenge the absurd impracticality and illogicality of this myth, but point out how the pseudoscience behind it is fundamentally flawed (as is all pseudoscience) and can be countered by what is known about basic plant biology.
1. Robbing plants of essential nutrients at any stage of their life cycle is NOT beneficial for growth. I challenge anyone to provide a single peer reviewed paper from a reputable journal that provides evidence suggesting otherwise.
2. If this was practical, wouldn’t you expect all big agricultural hydroponic growers adopt the same practice?
3. Plants take minerals into their tissues, from their roots via the treachery elements; i.e. xylem. Once these minerals are in the plant, they are there to stay, the plant does not expel them, unless it’s through senescence-driven abscission of leaf petioles. From the treachery elements nutrients are translocated into the phloem - the plant’s ‘blood supply’ - after being integrated into various biomolecules, or are used for various metabolic functions. Where is the logic in thinking the plant ‘uses’ these up in that last week of flushing, in order to avoid smoking them? All the N P K Fe Mg Ca etc. is still there.
4. For arguments sake say we counter the last point by suggesting these minerals in their ‘raw form’ will taste ‘hasher’ or ‘nastier’ in the form of pyrolytic breakdown products (formed when weed is burned) than artifacts of larger biomolecules of which these minerals/macro nutrients are now a part of, for example phosphorylated PO43-. Even if this was the case it still doesn’t correlate with the myth, as the transports steam in the treachery elements is measured in minutes not a week. i.e. a PO43- molecule does not wait around in these vessels for a week before subsequent translocation and modification.
5. If there was any truth to this myth, then plants grown in soil would always taste worse than plants grown in hydro. Why? Because obviously soil is not an inert medium you can flush for a week. And a plant CANNOT distinguish between a PO43- molecule that comes from soil from that of a PO43- molecule that comes from hydro solution (which also debunks another myth, but we’ll leave that one).
6. Are there studies that have conducted double blind trials to investigate if flushed weed tastes any ‘sweeter’ than unflushed weed. Again, need peer reviewed papers. And doesn’t have to be weed, can be strawberries or any other type of fruit.
7. What is the proposed mechanism to support this myth, and how is it consistent with fundamental plant biology.
8. How does starving the plant of food in the last week increase thc production in the trichome? Papers?
9. Given, under certain conditions stressed plants upregulate certain defence compounds, but they will almost certainly produce less inflorescence weight per watt of light. Growth is always retarded under stress - not promoted. Nutrient starvation is a form of stress. Looking for peer reviewed papers that suggest otherwise.
Those of you set in your ways, each to their own and best of luck to you. Those who are willing to change their views in light of new evidence, or lack thereof, be ready for increased yields by feeding those hungry ladies right up until the second you chop.

DrGanj answered grow question 3 months ago
Remove leaves if they are blocking airflow or budsites, otherwise may as well leave them. The leaves are your solar panels and the more green on show to the light, the more nutrients your roots can take in. If this is an auto be careful about only defoliating what you must. Also, any remaining leaves will get consumed by the plant when you start your flush. They will start to yellow from the bottom upwards and maybe even drop off but this is fine and normal. The plant does this because there is no feed available left in the soil and it will use up what it has inside it's leaves to compensate - this can mean bigger yields.

Remember, airflow and light penetration are your goals, beyond that, leave the leaves on there!
Hope this helps :)

if you give a 2 weeks flush the plant will use up all the fan leaves saving you time and the plant stress check my current diary it looks like fall in there lol

Feeding. Deficiences
Show all Answers (1)
NobodysBuds answered grow question 3 months ago
i think you need a slightly diluted mix of what you are giving... likely a bit too much N like you said. P-deficiency usually shows some blue in leaves. You don't nee dmuch P.. 50-60ppm is all it needs. More will not 'boost' anything. Plants have a metabolism... all about a happy medium, not min/max strategies very often with nutes.

guaranteed analysis labels can be used to calculate PPMs of the various nutrients you provide. you are in soil, so you have to consider what the soil contains too... if not super soil or living soil, you are most likeyl providing nearly all the nutes when you fertilize this late into a grow.

you can reference these PPMs and have a good idea of how to change your fertilizer mix.

N 120-130
P 50-60
K 180-200

These will be impacted by your tap water and may be different:

Ca 90-120?
Mg 80-100?
S 90-110?

Mine are posted each week in any diary. I have fairly hard tap water of 250-300ppm. So, i likely provide some unaccounted for Ca/Mg/S. Consider these ballparks, and more so with the secondary nutes. Your soil should have the trace elements present. Tap water helps with this too.

if any of these are too high, you have to consider lockout. I'd stick to your normal wet-dry cycle and merely change your formula slightly. Keep as many factors the same so your intentional change is impactful and precise.
Igrowneil week 9 started grow question 3 months ago
Okay plants are returning to a pale shade of green but still have lots of rust marks on leaves but 2 or 3 weeks away from harvest will the plants survive okay
Not N giving
Just P and K nutes I'm considering just giving plain water from here need advice

Burmese answered grow question 3 months ago
Hi friend, Yes , You can start giving plain water.But always adjust your water pH around 6.5 whenever you water.As I answer before, these deficiencies will not have serious impact on your final yield.All you need to do is focus on temp, humidity and water pH until harvest.Flushing or not flushing is your choice.Happy growing.. :v:
