    So all 3 plants in grow room are flowering a few days and starting to look good, but I have one issue. Short version is that I ended up with 3 plants of a strain I don't care about and they need to be transplanted, but I absolutely do not want to transplant unless there is 100% no other decent option. I removed a lot of lower bud sites thinking it might help.

    I don't mind removing a lot of the plant and having much less of a good quality bud. Should I actually cut off a big chunk of the plant or maybe only let so many buds grow and manually remove the rest? Maybe I can let it all grow and just water it more often (don't mind this if it only hurts quality by a smaller amount). Strain is lavender, pot size is 12H x 7.5W (about the same volume as a standard 3g). Sorry how similar this is to posting help with this plant recently. I was planning to transplant, but then found out it's another lavender not my auto dwarf (don't open stealth shipped seeds when you are high)

    Oh, the sun is really making an impact. Right plant was moved into the sun several days ago and left plant moved today (both are same age).

      If you leave them in the pots they are now they will finish ,the yield will be smaller and you will have to add nutes but I think they will be ok

    More sunshine less rain and they are vegging, the little ones are growing. In the raised bed with the MIS is a Widow banger auto just planted in up to her neck and watered with voodoo juice the 26th when these pics were taken. The Headbanger is starting to jump up, and I have worked some sulfur in around her, I know she will want it.
    As bad as I think my outdoor girls are doing, a friends entire crop was washed away in a flash flood, with 6" of top soil. His plants were 6" or so tall at the time. He bought 4 clones, and I gave him some feminized seed, Mazar I Shariff, and an assortment of autos. My garden has been to wet, but at least its still here!

      What is the sulfur for? Did you see a deficiency or is this good to add regularly? I always have a lot of sulfur on hand for my berries

      Yes she has shown sulfur deficiency (yellowing veins and then leaf) in the last 2 grows, just getting ahead of her I hope,,,
      My soil needs sulfur and I add it every year anyway, testing at the local ag center helps me with what I need to add, cost is 20 bucks for an extended test (way more than NPK)

      I have added doses of Epsom salts in my teas with unsulfured molasses and it helps the soil after so much rain. Does help roots and does not burn plants. 2 tablespoons per gal or water old school cheap.

    Did it

    2 seeds are currently soaking

        I hope not, shouldn't be as bad as a pot out in the sun, though this is the first black I have used. I used white vinyl before, if it gets to hot I can cover it with mulch,,,

        I used to use the black fabric but stopped and went on to mulch hay .I know mulch straw is better but to expensive for me ,so far the hay is working great it blocks most of the weeds ,we will have to wait and see how things do

        I have some hey thats 30 of so years old, but I also have sow bugs (rollie pollies/pill bugs) and they would luv that! also slugs etc

      So I figured it out today. She's 64 days from seed. I've got to say that this auto is my favorite plant to date. There's just something exciting about having it outside. Here's her journey so far

        Looking great love all the sun grows. She's so happy

      remember that not Auto,in picture behind the blue bucket, that went into bloom and was planted on Dec.15th for the last challenge ,I had moved her out of the GH a few days ago but ended up tossing her in the compost pile ,she went into bloom no stretch,the buds weren't getting bigger and then she started to just die off it looked like bud rot but the conditions were wrong for that ,one strange plant

        thanks SoOrbudgal it was really weird it just stopped everything and gave up it seemed like well I hope it does better as compost

      one of the woods girls hermied on me and grew balls ,good root zone though I couldn't pull it out of the pot, and the other thing I noticed the pots that are set on the ground will grow roots though the bottom of the pot, if it isn't one thing its another lol

        Some fantastic grows in this thread. Has a winner been declared?
        Give me a couple more grows and I might consider making a run at this.
        Cheers!

          I am waiting for some fem seeds to arrive from Seedsman with decent genetics. Also heading to Canada's west coast for a couple weeks in September. After that its time to start grow 2 and get in on the fun. Thanks for the encouragement.

ID:	319212 Just a random update. 2 P98 Bubba Kush fro new420guy as usual. One had a little stretch. Other than that basically identical. Little droopy from just watering with first dose of nutes. Can’t wait to see them in a few days! Currently 11 days I believe? Ehh somewhere around there. I’m more a “by eye” kinda guy now. Numbers make things to complicated. But I’ll use them when necessary 😉 all your grows look pretty spectacular imo. Hopefully be back in the ranks sooner than later. Wish me luck!!

        Oh oh and the random one you see in the background is 1 of 4 other baggies I’m growing cause it’s all I had ha. I’m keeping them on the dL until I know the sex. 😏 😏

          Thanks ojh

        I was in the GH yesterday and I happened to notice one of the manifolded plants had brown on the stem, so I took a closer look and I found a total of 3 spots it looks like bud rot WTF I cleaned the stems best as I could but plan on doing a defole to make sure they are getting good airflow,any other ideas would be appreciated

          Did you check the stem for tiny holes? Here we have squash bugs that will lay eggs in the stem. They larvae will eat the base of the stem and kill the plant. If you find the holes take a razor blade and cut those suckers out

          Ill check them more closly but as I cleaned the stem off I didn't see any I hung one fan but need to do 3 more to aid in them having a steady breeze

          looks like your going to get 2 foot long buds on her fantastic

        Going for a staggered grow - Sweet Tooth will be ready in a few weeks, Think Big is doing just that - she'll be around well into August.

        THC Bomb - Candy Kush - Chemdog - all around 40 days - they should be finishing end of August.

        6 more growing - all about a week or so - 2 Candy Kush - 2 Chemdog - 2 Bubba Cheese - they should be finishing end of September.

        I'll start 4 more at the start of August - hopefully I'll have enough in jars I can close my tent for the winter.

          if I dont grow enough in the summer I wont have extra to do oils and such

        I was harvesting the Limpin Louie yesterday and felt I needed something special out of depressing yield so I scraped my bowl 18 grams not bad,My dark devil are not ready yet had I just had to try the pipe out wow it was smooth ,the first picture is of the outside woods grow she was moved to somewhere less visible ,about 30 yards into the ferns but I thought it showed how hard they are to pick out even in the wide open

          Nice OJH. One of these days I'm gonna have to clean my bowl too. It's amazing what builds up in those.

          Glad your enjoying that pipe. Really cool to have that pipe back up and useable. But then again I am very sentimental about such things.
