      where did you come up with that ,and do you spray on a regular interval ,Im assuming you spray right up till harvest ,this is good news Canuck I've been using grow safe for wpm just doesnt cut it .I'm in the process of pulling all the squash and any other plants that have wpm on them from around the GH ,with as much air blowing thru the gh you woudl'nt think it would be a problem .Now that is whole milk not the weak ass one or two percent right lol

      1% milk OJH - got the idea from GWE - I've only sprayed twice - third spray in an hour or so. Have to do it cuz of the stupid weather, more rain coming so have to stay on top of it. Seems to be working.

      I have noticed something similar, but much much less. It almost looks like ashes to me. I guess the milk can't hurt. This is stupid, but would the plant absorb calcium?

    Had to defol a ton yesterday. Where they’re at was like a giant yellow light going off for the water or electric guy to see them, 10-12’ yellow leaves! I only check them every 2 weeks. My last grapefruit is taking her sweet time, but healthy. Both the glues are doing really good. You can see the size of the colas compared to my arm on one of them. I friggin split the stem on Bertha. When you’re only 4’10” tall in a wheelchair and trying to defol a 8’ plant the branches only bend so much....lol. You’ll have to appreciate the picture I took while looking up at her. I went to the house and grabbed mom and tape and had her fix it tho. She’ll recover just fine. If I had to guess I’d have to say Bertha will produce 11+oz dry, glue #2 will be about 9+, and who the hell knows about my last grapefruit. I’m hoping for more out of each, but time will tell. I had minimal bud rot on one and was able to rip those buds off and toss. They were small nugs anyway. The rest of y’alls girls are looking good too. I’m hoping a really good fall harvest.

      They are looking great nice size buds for the time in bloom . Retodd I have found that if you get bud rot its best to cut the stem below the rot then cut the good bud off and use it damn shame

      oldjarhead100 There was only a couple small nugs. The weeds grew up around the lower part too much. Mom since went down and cleared the bases really good yesterday.

      Those look amazing!

    I need some help. Ended up with more plants than originally planned and the odor started getting out of control about 2 weeks ago. The plants have been flowering about 65 days and I decided to harvested now. They look amazing, way better than the last one.

    The problem now is that I can't air dry because it smells too much. Going to buy a tent specifically for flowering and drying very soon. I instantly cut the buds into very small pieces and removed most the stem. The photo below accounts for the size of roughly half of them and the others are a even mix of popcorn and medium size.

    I let them dry 24 hours on mesh rack with no fan and then 8 hours with a fan. Then I put them in 32oz amber Mason jars filled about 40% and laid sideways. I put a hygrometer in the jar and this morning it says 78RH 70 degrees. The RH in the room is usually between 40-55

    Putting into the open jars sideways reduced the odor a ton, but will I get mold? I was thinking if I just baby them and check constantly then it will be fine. I cut them small thinking it will greatly reduce the chance of mold, but won't dry too fast either. I am rotating the buds as well. Smaller buds to the front, larger to the back and rotate.

    The two buds partially off of the dollar have been sitting out on purpose and dried a bit further.

      I did this yesterday and they are looking good, smell is still greatly reduced and probably ready to cure in one day. I haven't seen bud this good since I lived in Europe 15 years ago and then again when states started legalizing.

      Hard to describe, but when I slowly tear apart the bud into the smallest pieces, each piece is firm and fluffy, kind of tears apart like cotton candy. Very intense diesel gas lemon lavender odor. The previous plants buds would literally fall apart before you can get them to this point because they are leafy and a bit dry.

      this Alaskan purple has been super cropped every 2 days for awhile now I have string pulling it away from edge of GH , on the way out to the woods girls I saw someone cut a couple of trees down, now why would they do that ,putting in a tree stand is a good reason so I took a walk no other sign than those three trees cut and left where they where ,so I came home broke out my game cameras and I will have one with me when I go back out on Thursday, so I didn't find a tree stand but I did find a cool tree lol ,thats a perfect tree it sits 10 yards away from a spot where 5 runs come together just not high enough for me lol

        Thanx, with this wet fall I am concerned with bud rot, I hope the extra air flow will help!

      Doing some planning last night and need some feedback in which method is best. Sorry how long these last couple of post are, I am not trying to write an essay.

      I imagine there is a point where the light becomes far less important and you really just need more total time to pass and the plant would basically come out just as good even in the shade.

      For example if you wanted to start inside and then move into an area that is not super sunny, what is the best point for this? I'm thinking I can veg indoors, flower for about 40 days and then move outdoors for the remaining 3-6 weeks. I am noticing at roughly 30-40 days flower I have my final shape and buds are forming as a whole unit.

      If the plant needs 70 days flowering and you spend half indoors and half out in partial sun (partial shade until 1pm then full sun) vs indoors the entire time, will you notice a huge difference in the final weight and quality? If yes, then at what point would you move outdoors in this situation for maximum efficiency?

          Wish I could make some of my autos delay the flowering. I wonder if this can be adjusted via breeding? If you cross ruderalis with photo strain X and then dilute the ruderalis genetics by crossing it many more times with a photo strain, will it flower later because it's less of an auto. Hope that makes sense.

          It does but I don't know much about inbreeding Autos.
          My thoughts is that it's due to topping and trimming it pushed back flowering by 10 days. I don't miss a beat with Photos but I did stall my autos, just need more practices.

          I actually have two autos now about 3 weeks and trying something different (no clue if it will work). The plant spaced a bit for 3 nodes then started taking off. I supercropped the main stem now to start making it curve around and keep it low which I need anyway (just doing more aggressively early on).

          No topping or fim though. I'm hoping the plant pushes the lower growth out now while it also strengthens the main stem. Who knows, maybe it will stunt it like crazy, well I'm sure one of you already know what will happen.

        Water cure just finished, strain is lavender. The odor is still so intense, wow. Well, it now needs to dry, but I had to share this awesome photo

          Looking forward to the next. Lavender + NL, several sprouted about a week ago. I was worried it would be too much couch lock for my taste, but vaping really changed that. Tested just now and I feel excellent. Pain free and not tired! Thanks for all the help

          So, I was sitting on my porch yesterday and thought I’d show y’all exactly how big Bertha is. I zoomed in on my iPad, so quality of picture is for shit. There she is just peeking out around the overgrowth on the old horse fence. Told ya she was 8’. And just for a laugh, mom was doing some defol down there and accidentally popped off a small nug. She made a pretty garnish before getting put to the side to dry.

            Only gardening I do anymore is weed....lol.

          Hey fellow growers - my plants are a bit easier to see Retodd - outside girls here. Sun only hits em for a couple of hours now - so I put out my sun boosters. A Vipraspectra 300 for each of them will pull out the buds.
          Chemdog on the left and Candy Kush on the right. Little one is Bubba Cheese - growing up tall and lanky.
          Rained overnight - so - back up to 100% humidity. Gave these outside girls their 4th spraying of milk and water. Waited until they dried out before putting them under their suns.
          They seem to get a darker green after every spraying, or I'm out here smoking too much 'quality control ' cannabis all the time.
          Finally got some jars filled up. Last Candy Kush was disappointing at. 60 grams. Think Big netted me about 110 grams. THC Bomb - 80 grams. Chemdog 75 grams.
          Very happy to have a variety.

          All your grows look fabulous - guess spidermite has his hands very busy. Click image for larger version  Name:	20190831_102020.jpg Views:	1 Size:	1.33 MB ID:	333690Click image for larger version  Name:	20190831_101954.jpg Views:	1 Size:	1.31 MB ID:	333691

            How much do you expect from these plants? My last bud came out amazing, but the quantity is still way less than I hoped. Still nowhere near multiple oz on a single plant. I might have 2oz from the 3 total plants and I thought they were pretty big.

            Now I see the value in carbon filters. I was able to keep odor down because the plants apparently aren't that big (looks big to me), but now I think 4ft ish plants are needed to really get the results I want.

            Lights lights lights I ran 300 w leds for my autos and could only yield 2 oz per plant so I switched to a 800w
            @ canuck thats the best idea I've seen on how to use 300w leds lol, do you run into issues with them so close to the bottom growth on plants

            These plants are a good size for me - I expect maybe 160 grams each. But I'm not there yet.

          My growing season is about to kick off.. Is anyone growing autogrow plants in a DWC style setup, on this thread?

            Just started some autos, but they’re in soil. It’ll be fun to compare to yours.

          This happened 5 minutes ago, do I top or keep taped (auto)? Thanks
