    Since we had to harvest early the iced grapefruit came in at 116.34gr. We’re not complaining at all. It’s dry, so just need to cure. My friends are already asking when it’ll be ready...lol.

    This sounds like so much fun, and while I'd love to join, Im going to be in the middle of Dry, along with the fact I really enjoy non-auto.

    But I can't wait to follow this

      It’s called auto showdown, because that’s what we did over the winter. We’re continuing our photo grows on the same page. Welcome to our own little piece of heaven here Ardek

      ya ardek its just a great way to learn and show off very helpful people good advice

    I made the decision to start my flush on the fruit punch. All trics are cloudy with a few amber. I figure after a 7 to 9 day flush they will be where I want them.

      oldjarhead100 I absolutely love beet greens. I'm growing 3 different kinds of beets at the moment. I make a roasted beat salad with bacon feta candied pecans and a honey balsamic dressing. It's amazing.

    More tying down, a bit of thinning on the Rusty Glue,

    ocgreen the bud trimmers we use are hand crank bud trimmers. They work great and you can harvest many plants in a day.

    oldjarhead100 did you see my comments on the autos above? To be honest it's mostly just Fast buds genetics.

        I use a 315w CMH for my veg and Mother tent and a 630w CMH for my flower tent. running PAR PRO 3100 K for my 315's and a PAR PRO 4200 K and a 3100 K in my 630W

      So I ran out of smokeable pot last week - although I did keep one available every night for me and my wife before bed - maddening.
      Had to wait for my pool buddy to come back from Pelly Saskatchewan cuz I'm not paying $15.00 a gram from the ripoff government - $420.00 an ounce?
      Well he came back last night - Bubble-gum Kush never tasted so good. $3.60 a gram. Black market -$100.00 an ounce.
      10 plants going - 2 very close.- will stock my jars. And solve my problems.

      Still have August to get 4 more started.

        haha Canuck I feel your pain I have less than a pound till harvest in Oct.hope I make it ,my grow partner said he was out so I gave him some stuff I had to make oil with .I would have given him bud if I wasn't so low (some are going to laugh about having just under a pound and worrying about it running out ) but I also gave him 2 ten mg syringes of oil ,. we smoked a joint of it and it wasn't bad and it was way better than nothing lol

        Damn...I am never out, but I hardly get high on my own supply...lmao. I get rid on mine for 250-300/oz depending on how much they get and who is buying

      Here in MA., when recreational opened the going rate was $420/oz.+tax. I’m so happy I started growing because those prices are outrageous and unless you know the source you just can’t trust the street market these days.

      I started growing for the cost savings, now I couldn’t be happier that my wife and I don’t have to out source our stash. It’s a different world out there, you can’t trust everyone!!

        I know, right!!! Here in MA. They legalized home grow almost 2 years before they introduced the legal recreational market. Anyone that was paying attention started growing their own because the legal market was never going to be an option.

        I’d venture to guess that at least 40% of the legal cannabis sold here in MA. right now isn’t grown above board. This market has been grey for so long that the connections aren’t just severed over night. I remember the days that I paid $150 for premium smoke on the street with no worry about what might be in it, those days are gone. Too many people out to make a buck on someone else’s life!!

        Biggest thing I hated was the availability of specific strains. Stopped smoking a while because everyone would just sell indica. It's like most random people judge if weed is good by how much it knocks your ass out, so high thc indicas.

      I just can't seem to get this right! First I grow Photoperiod plants in a Autoflower Showdown and now I'm growing autoflower plants inside while everyone's growing photo Plants outside. Hahaha Iv never grooved with the grain or maybe I'm just a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

      Here are the details:
      4 freebie sweet tooth autos germinated on 7/7
      1 Hlg-100 led light 24/0. That's right 100 watts total!
      24×30×40" grow box.
      3 gal geopot.

      21 Day's old today from hitting the shot glass, topped at day 19. Got one runt that just started its second set of nodes, no topping on that girl.

      Yearly maintenance, cleaning, and heat shut down the flowering tent so I said "what the hey" I'll try some free autos in a mini grow for a change.

      My main goal for this grow is more then one grams a watt at harvest, I hope the runt didn't screw that one.

      I will be updating this grow here in the "THE GREAT AUTO SHOWDOWN"

      pictures are just after sundown


      LoJ
      326 days from seed (yup - got it wet 8 Sept 2018)
      55 days from pistils
      ETA: 3rd week of August


      no coke can colas, maybe a couple of Zippo lighters - definitely some regular Bics
      I am so pleased with her. she is getting so heavy now. starting to lean
      she just started "2 more weeks"

      her story...
      planted last september, was getting ready to flip her in December - then the original 'Show-down" was scheduled start 1 Dec - I figured I could run her at 20/4 with the autos (longest 'advertised' 8-10 weeks ever, felt more like 12 or 13 - but it was fun, learned stuff, smoked my own product - Lurking sticks it to the man!!! but, I digress)
      so, it was well into May before there were no more autos, she has\had another roommate (more on that later)

      LoJ veg'd at 20/4 under 1000W MH, after the autos started showing pistils - I switched to 1000 HPS.
      after the autos were done - I turned my attention back to her and her roommate
      she was fairly healthy - about 2 feet tall. should have had way more training to strengthen her lower limbs
      by the first week of June, slowly brought the light schedule down to 12/12 nd settled in for a nice flower
      then "The Event" happened
      Im sure it was a dark day
      it was day 24 of flower
      I was a bad, bad, bad gardener to her room-mate

      following "The Event", I vowed, she would get nothing but love, nutrients, the absolute bearest minimum of touching, and ABSOLUTELY NO DIGGING AROUND IN THE ROOT ZONE BECAUSE YOU DON'T THINK THERE IS AIR. THAT IS WRONG, BAD, BAD GARDENER

      I have kept the vow, all of it
      she had her last heavy defol at day 21 of flower. since "The Event" (day 24) I only removed light blockers - no polite tucking either, carefully in, snip, carefully out (no touching)

      she is around 5 feet from the floor, 3 feet from her pot.

      she has a wonderful smell - lightly sweet (some sort of fruit), with a hint of citrus (lemon)

        Thanks for taking the time to read, it was fun to write (even the ID Ten T errors) 😁

      Spidermite More photos of that auto. These came out pretty good and the shots in my hand are water vs dry cured. Most of these were taken only under the 3500k grow light. The second to last photo came out really nice. Not sure what caused it, but it looks grey and then you see the leaves green and some red hairs that really stand out.

        Thanks, this site and forum have helped a lot. The biggest con with water curing is the taste. My Auto Duck buds did not look or smell nearly as good and no fruit odor.

        These water cured buds still smell very heavily of fruit punch, but it taste just like auto duck. It's hard to describe if you never tried it. I'm thinking all water cured buds will have this same taste that I don't care a lot for, but still experimenting. I put fresh air buds in the jar with the dry water cure to see if it helps after a few days. I wonder how adding bought terpenes afterwards might work?

        Air wins for sure, but if we learn that water cure is actually really healthier that could change things a bit.

      Good day GWE community
      The pic I posted yesterday of the THC Bomb hasn't really been defoliated much at all. So looking at her today with scissors in hand and what do I detect? Sure enough the beginnings of WPM - my fault for not taking my scissors to her sooner. Not a problem really - she needed to lose some leaves anyways. But I have to watch her close cuz that stuff is easily transferred just by removing leaves. Or I could take some moist paper towels and wipe down each and everyone of those leaves. Maybe.......
