Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

One thing needs pointed out first: my first grow, plants were massively stressed by a succession of different things, and in the end I was just glad that there was something to harvest at all. Not the plants at fault here, just my utter newbishness.

That said, the Critical Kush was by far my favourite in this grow. Tasted really nice and was very strong.

Nutrients

I don't think I'm going to do another coco/hydro grow anytime soon. Too many bottles to faff around with every day, it's no-till for me from now on!

The plants took about 4 months from seed to harvest - but the only reason is that I stressed them so much (although not intentionally), that pretty much doubled the veg period. I'm sure they're a lot faster in an experienced grower's hands.

Grow Questions
Chamalla week 6 started grow question 9 months ago
When an auto still hasn't shown pre-flowers at week 5 or 6, does that mean the entire growth cycle will be longer - or will it simply have that much less time for flowering once it starts doing that?

The flowering time will take the same amount of time. The start date of flowering won’t have anything to do with the length of flowering. But the longer it takes to start flowering will certainly extend the overall growing time
Chamalla week 8 started grow question 8 months ago
Should the wee Haze not be a wee bit bigger by now? It's been fed a light mix of Canna Start nutes (for seedlings/clones), Rhizo, CalMag & Cannazym. Certainly not been over-watered (maybe under?). Sitting in its final 12L pot already, so no root disturbance for two weeks now.

I took a look at the earlier weeks of the whole diary. I think the whole lot of them are growing really slow, you even chopped 2 of them for the same reason. And the only reason I see that cause that is low temperature; you've been having 20°C to 22°C (68F to 72F) during the day, which is kind of low, and you don't even mention lights out temperatures, so I assume they are even lower. Keeping the temperature above 23°C (73F) and below 26°C(79F) will speed up your rate of growth dramatically.
Chamalla week 12 started grow question 7 months ago
I reckon I should start to flush now for the next 2 weeks or so until harvest. Would you agree with this estimate, and is there anything critical I need to look out for at this stage? They're about to start their 5th and 6th week of flowering, respectively.
Other General Questions

Athos answered grow question 7 months ago
With coco you don't want to flush more than 1 week, since it holds no buffer of nutes. You still have 2 to 3 more weeks of flowering, so don't flush yet, I would wait for the calyxes to swell, from that point you should have just 1 week for the thricomes to mature.

Hi Camalla. Maybe now you know it but i may have a few advices for you. Automatics are very tricky. They looove smooth and loosen soil, and enough space in the pot.its possible that if the roots hit a small potground they may stop grow and in worst case start to flower It is the best to put them after germination directly into the final pot(around 11l) give them a mixture with perlite so the soil is fluffy. ok thats it happy growing
