    Weigh in for Skywalkers 2 autos kiss method with lightly amended roots organics original. Lighting was started under cfls moved to 1000watt mh but mostly got 6-8 hours of good sunshine. Finished up under 1000watt hps and 5-6hours of sunshine. Got my training done late and too much hst probably hurt me a little as far as yield and max potential.

    I had a good guess at 6oz. 193g was weigh in and I would have had more of not for failed germination and photoperiods mixed in my 6 autos turned into 2 autos. But not bad for my first run with any auto flower. Buds are pretty dense even some of the larf is dense. Smells of pine and lemon. Pics of part of a top I didn't cut down into smaller buds 😉 🚬 😃 ✌ 😊

    Thank you atu 😃. Redwasp if I hag only one it would be under the 1000 by itself but if I only ran one 1000 the other plant would suffer with minimal lighting. Unless I had a light rail but that's a work in progress 😆.

    I cant say much. I ran 1 plant after 9 weeks by itself under 1000 watts just to see what happens. They fill the tent. Lol

    Me too, Chef! We switched to HPS and flower nutes on Saturday after 24 hours darkness. They are stretching away!!
    Your pictures are very good.

    KingKush yes I am they won't fit under a single bulb. I know it may be overkill and my energy bill has been minimal because I take them out to enjoy the sun. They're on a sunrise sunset time now so only running them when it rains really.

    Are you running 2000w for two plants?

    What's with the turquoise light on the right? Even if it's mH it still looks dim bro, just saying. Both of those plants could be under that one hood on the left 👌 Just my thoughts my growmie!
    Otherwise, looking great!

    We have budlets 😉. Worm casting tea with mycorrhizae today. This mistake has turned out to be my favorite grow by far and hope the mj gods Wii be on my side. So far they've been torturing me with seed mistakes, I hope they've had their fun. Going to top dress with some p and k and they had a fresh soil mix topped off about 2 weeks ago so I think I'm going to finish strong with this grow. Only thing I'm dreading is weather. Dipping down in the 40s low 50s and they seem to be doing okay. Wouldn't mind another 2 months of fair weather to finish out these bushy beasts. 3' tall from soil and around 3' wide with budlets forming halfway up the stalk to the very top. 😋

    Curing still and waiting another week to weigh out. But from jars looks to be a good 6oz. Maybe 5 and 1/2 but not bad for my first auto run. I know you can't see in the amber jars but they are the fullest ones. Will take pics in the bud bowl when I weigh out. Here's some of a bottom branch. I usually clip big buds down to smaller buds so it dries evenly and faster. The big buds will keep the rh up in the jar I've noticed and I have to take them out too often.

    Things I'd do differently with auto flowers would be to run them in a sog style grow, making sure they were all autos. Start in final pots no transplanting, probably 5s or 7s fabric pots. Top and train earlier depending on growth, avoid supercropping till later in flower. Lst more delicately and prune fans covering growth tips or tie them down. Run hps or dual mh/hps spectrum lights before 3rd node maybe 10 days from seed. More mycorrhizae,root enhancer, and inoculate earlier Daily foliar feedings and water with more teas. Write down time lines for when to top dress or provide bloom boosters. And I'm sure there will be other areas not covered here.

    Will have better bud pics at weigh in 😉 ✌ 💘.

    Did a heavy pruning/ lollipopping to most growth tips that would never make it to the canopy but left fan leaves on. Considering this day to start the beginning of flowering which puts me at 8 weeks from now roughly. So they'll be finishing up at the end of October beginning of November.

    Going to have to get some 6ft bamboo stakes the 4 footers I have aren't going to cut it. And I know they're going to need some support. So far with the mh in the stretch has been minimal. And night temps are getting in the 50s in my shop but they seem to be hardened enough to take it. If it starts getting any colder I'm going to run into problems with keeping them warm. Guess I'll get some straw and see about some form of heating though it will be hard since I really wasn't prepared for a photo grow in my shop this late in the year.

    My patience is wearing thin with autos in a photo room and photos in an auto room. All because seeds were mixed up and that's my freaking luck. I wish I could run 2 lights in my room just to finish without worrying about environment. Or seperate the seemingly autos that are growing in the dark harvest grow challenge. Fml I've got my work cut out for me 😆. Here's some pistil pics 😉.

    Hotter dark time temps can help control a bit of "the stretch" as well. Which I actually learned by experience before I read that indeed it does. 😉 🍻
