    JohnEmad RagWeedDWC What I had to do wasn't exactly super-cropping a couple of grows ago. Some of the colas just kept going after the 3 week stretch, so I bent them and tied them down; they developed a joint where they were bent and like RagWeed says, the buds grew beautifully all along the horizontal part of the cola.

    I suspended them from the ceiling with suction cups and the green wire. I didn't get any foxtailing; I checked the light with my lux meter to keep them in the good zone and out of the bad zone.
    Why yes, I was high when I wrote this.

      I just snot laughed looking at that plant on the right. It’s not that there is anything wrong with the plant. But for some reason my stoned brain made me think of the kid we all knew in school...the “over-achiever teacher pleaser” type...”pick me! Pick MEEEE! Look over here!” 🤣
      What strain? Auto?

      YYCannabis I don't grow autos: the over-achieving plant is C99 by G13 Labs, the tallest one I ever grew.

    Took a bit of persuasion to get this stalk to bend but she reluctantly agreed. Taped the joint to safeguard it and tied the top for future bud growth. Gained back 10 inches.
    Thanks for the help gang.

      Great job, johnE!!!

    So, I pulled her out tonight to prune some and noticed all the roots on my lap. I looked under the bag and seen this. Shit! I now know why so many ppl use really large bags. I need to transplant soon!

      yes it did,,,must be hung up somewhere,,,

    Day 66 for my autos, Cream Caramel auto from sweet seeds is packing on the flowers. about 3.5/4 weeks into flower,
    The two NLX's are doing their best to catch up but as sativa dom. strains they act and grow a bit differently.

      I just went to do a little topping on some young Lemon and Strawberry Cheesecake autoflowers and noticed pistils on 1 of the SC plants. She was just a seed in a package only 20 days ago! They grow up so fast... Anyways, I hope this doesn't mean that she is starting to flower already at only 3.25" tall but I guess if she is that just means we'll be smoking sooner. I'm new to autos, is this normal? 2gal pot

      A poor shot of the pistils

        Yes I've got 3 same strain (not your strain) that went to flower in 3wks runt runt 8 grams heck if I know why? But other autos have done OK per there description just not more than 1oz but i'm trying till I get a decent yield off one. I like them cause they are faster i'm on the fence with potency not close to my photos yet.

        I got some heating pads to go under my autos they are controlled by a thermometer so you can keep the root zone at a steady temp ,it doesn't take much to stress autos ,I look at it like a challenge to get a good yield from one lol

      At this point in my autos I top at the fifth node pinch the top fans off then stand back and watch em go. Oops I meant this as a comment to FunkyButtLovin my bad.

        I was going to top above the 4th node until I saw this. Should I go ahead and top the others of same age/size/nodes that are not showing pistils yet?

      I like to keep it simple, top em all,make a note in the log book "topped today". Whew, works done, time for a beer!

        He might be asking if he could top an auto whilst it just started to show top flower cola? I think is what he wanted to know and i'd like to know that too. Some just flower so small?

        Yes, SoOrbudgal that is exactly what I was wanting to know about.

        Yes you can top them after they start showing pistils if they are growing fast enough. Autos grow and flower at the same time which is why they are so fast. I've had a few start showing pistils when they were 6 inches tall yet they still ended up growing to a bit over 48 inches tall.

      FunkyButtLovin someone will get back on this. I'm probley looking at a very early flower auto too with the one seedling I got left out of the dwarf GDP seeds from summer. Small small but I'm growing the last one along with several others next grow.

            Family first! Hope all works out well.

          I never keep track of dates, but here’s my lemon ak47 aka Saints. She’s been a odd duck since day one. She still hasn’t produced any trichomes and has zero smell to her. I’ve done a ton of reading and hear this happens sometimes. Spider told me to just give her time and that’s what I’ve been reading. ‘Low or no trichomes production? Give your plant 2-3 weeks and then see her explode.’ I guess we shall see...lol.
          Hope all goes well with your family OJH.
          🙏🏼✌🏻

            Day 73 and the flowers are building nicely. Should be about 7 to 10 days between plants at harvest I estimate but then I have been wrong once or twice...lol!

            Think my lights are a bit close at 12 to 15 inches but no room left so seeing some leaf stress but nothing too crazy.

            Glad my new hobby is indoors as it was -30 C last night. Tha'ts cold no matter what system you use to measure temps.

                I hope all gets better soon oldjarhead100. And you are right about hospitals. About 2 months ago my son popped his shoulder out of its joint. Not just like a normal out of joint shoulder either. His shoulders ball joint was almost centered in his right pec (so way out of joint.) I physically carried him into the ER as he was having trouble walking. When I went to the check in desk (with my adult son crying and screaming like a baby) the security guard yelled at me to get behind the line on the floor, ( there was no one else at the check in desk so.) I asked for a wheel chair he nodded to the other side of the room and says they are over there and went back to reading. It took everything I had not to go to jail that night.

                Parts of the story are left out there as this occurred at about 2am. I also had my grandson with me who is in a wheel chair. And We got a flat tire on the way to the ER. So when I got there I was beyond the tipping point of what more I could take.
