    Hiyas! Apologies for not checking in, my mom's latest biopsy was much worse, meaning many changes, so I checked out of my life to focus on her. We have a new plan & chemo so I'm back to tending the girls 😍 they are my zen ☮ Hoping to still tag along on this grow. Everyone seems to be growing madly, there are some beefy looking plants you guys posted. It took me too long to get mine into the tent but they are coming along nicely now, for me. I will attach pics from past week. Please, all advice is always welcome.

      oldjarhead100 I'm starting her slowly, I decarb bud & can add it to anything for her. She wasn't a drinker & she had never tried cannabis so this has been very scary for her, she refused it until her oncologist told her he thought she should try it. 💗 that guy!
      Redwasp praying for your wife.
      Retodd thank you.

          I know it has nothing to do with the competition, but thought y’all might like it. So, one of my businesses is I make pipes and bongs. The last one I made for my friend Melissa was confiscated. So, while we were working in the shop last night I made her a new one. All the wood I use is grown on my farm. I turned this apple bowl for her and made her a new slip stem.
          🙏🏼✌🏻

            And lube with water!

            RagWeedDWC A lot of times it will depend on the glass and cutters. But yes, drilling while emerging in water is good. You do that to cool the glass not to lube it. If I’m drilling anything thicker than 1/4” I’ll use a spray bottle. 90% of the time I use my cordless drill when drilling. Downside is making it stay exactly where you want it using hole saw bits, it like to track some. That bottle in the pic is 3/16” and it did some tracking, but the grommet covers it up.
            I’ve wanted for years to blow glass, but you can buy kick ass bongs online for like $10! The cost factor in a starter setup is in the $1,000’s. Even tho I sell my pipes for $75-200, you get what you pay for. Every one is numbered, has a story, you have your choice of wood species, hell....you can even design your own and I make them. I take pictures from beginning to end of each one being made. It sucks how there’s a couple people on this site that have been waiting for theirs, but I’ve been dealing with health problems. I’m so far behind right now. When I was in the shop over the weekend was the first time in months. Sorry, like I told others...I’m a lightweight and a bit high right now, so being long winded....lol🙏🏼✌🏻

            nice little bowl brought back some memories , I built a water pipe from a half gallon JB bottle and use the largest end of a four way lug wrench it held a 1/4 in one bowl, it was back when you could still get a 3 finger lid for 15 dollars so you had to smoke alot it was named Killer after a couple of bowles lol

          I have a question or 2,, or,,,
          Now, The Wicked Witch of the West (white widow) is 13" tall and 22" across with limbs taller than the center top (only about 12"). She is almost 30 days old. The 2 longest limbs have started reaching, or instead of 2 nodes, only one at a time. The other limbs are not there yet, and last night it was only 1 limb that showed this, it will spread of course.
          This is my first time with autos, can I expect the center is going to jump up soon?
          Or are the sides going to continue to out grow the main plant top?
          Not that it is a bad thing,, just not what I expected, I more expected a Christmas tree shape.
          I have thinned a few side/fan/water leafs out, and plan to tie the outside limbs down, then move inward doing the same using fishing line (50 lb test mono as its what I have). She does look healthy and has not complained to much on the high PH, though I am getting it down, was 8.4, now 7.0 (about) and will continue to drop to 6.5 or so.
          The left side is outgrowing the right side, the left side has normal leaves, the right side has 2 eyes in the center, left side limbs are taller than the main top, right side are not.
          Is this normal for this type of plant, or are mine freaks?
          Or could this be signs of a polyploid?

            Rwise I think you issue is in the root zone if you had a high ph like that I would of flushed until correct then start replacing nutes that were washed out . The only problem with autos is that if they get slowed down at all it really stunts them, my 2 cents anyways lol

            I'm not too familiar with autos (never grew them), but I believe oldjarhead100 is correct with his answer. Something may be going on in the root zone or maybe one part of the plant is not getting enough light? One thing is certain though; you want to make sure you correct the issue before she goes into flower. Otherwise it'll effect your final yield. Perhaps an image of the plant may help.

          Sorry lots going on around here. Hope to be back in full swing soon. If not well thanks guys and gals.

            Hope all goes well bro.

          I received my new420guy seeds today. A bit of a delay because I sent in a check due to being to cheap to pay the $5.00 credit card surcharge. Professionally packaged and prompt service that cannot be beat in comparison to out of country ordering. High praise to Paul Prochaska. In this initial order I just picked up 4 autos for this competition, 2 White Widows, and two "Magnesias". I also picked up a few photos to augment my Nirvana order for this coming Spring. My lost in the ether order from Seedsman might show up for the Spring of 2020 if we are all still around for that "coming year". Well the dust is clearing from the hot and heavy competition thundering off into the distance. Slow on the draw is an understatement, but these autos will keep me busy over the long dark days of winter. I really didn't have a chance as this will be my first auto grow ever. I am admittedly not an expert in this realm. But I do like my wife's father's (an old CIA guy) definition of expert. The past tense of a spurt a drip under pressure.

            Drenched, dripping, inundated!

          Show of hands of how many of you could feel the pain I’m in right now to do this topping, just so I can flux my girl just like Light Addict?!?! I’m literally sick to my stomach right now. To do a ‘normal’ grow....she would have been pretty. She’s healthy af tho! Say a prayer to the Ganja God with me that this fluxing works out. In 2 days I’m going to go about a 8” circle around her to reposition and that way she’s running parallel.

            Wishing you & mrs redwasp the best. Thanks for starting this fun grow, you will be missed. ☮💗🙏

          So I was cleaning the bottom tray in my tent and while my plants were sitting outside the tent my sneaky little bastard of a cat chomped off one of my new fan leaves. It only had its first true leaves then the next set and he bit off one of the new ones. You think it’ll be alright? The plant that is. I already put the cat in jail.
