    Well it’s been a while since I’ve done a full update, so here we go.

    First off- I have been experimenting with nutrients. Organic sand Synthetic and focusing on a good base nute with a strong bloom booster.

    Ive got an Alaskan Purple auto that’s in week 9 and still going. She’s caused me a lot of issues, or rather I caused her to have a lot of issues. Ph was off a bit at first but got it corrected. Still getting these brown spots on leaves and yellowing. Luckily, it hasn’t affected bud growth. She’s been all organic aside from one dose of the Flower Fuel bloom booster. This stuff is INSANE. You know you’ve got a good bloom supplement when the lower “larfy” stuff is actually turning into golf balls.

    In the same tent as AP1 is the first photo I’ve grown in a while. She’s a White Widow Seedsman freebie in week 4 of flower. She’s been 100% synthetic nutrients and healthy as can be. I decided to give the Miracle Grow Organic soil a try for this plant. I’m hoping she bills up bc so far these buds are little baby’s.

    My actual closet has been taken over due to my anxiousness. I planted a few too many seeds and didn’t have room for These next three in the 2x2 tent. My gracious, pregnant, red-headed wife has been so kind to let me use up 80% of the closet. 😇😅

    oldjarhead100 (you mentioned you were interested in this seed) To start off, is my proudest grow (plant) yet. A seed that I got off the last Alaskan Purple auto I grew was planted for fun, just to see what happened. Well this thing turned out to be a an absolute beast! She’s younger than all the rest and doing extremely well. I’ll have at least 6 main colas of good hefty stems. She just got into flower and is eating up the organic “Incredible Bulk” bloom booster. Can’t wait to see how this one turns out. I experimented with super cropping since she was growing so well. First time doing it on an auto.

    The next two plants turned out to be a big bust so far. I’m real bummed that they are so short. One is an OG Kush Auto from Dinafem and the other is a Bubblegum auto from 00 Seeds. They’re 3 days apart in age. The OG Kush has issues early on. My 4 year old accidentally knocked over the solo cup and damaged the roots. I’m shocked she rebounded. She looks extremely healthy (all organic) but hasn’t grown verticals much at all. I’ll be lucky to get 7 grams out of it. The Bubblegum smells nothing like bubblegum yet, but is really packing on some trichomes. She is super short as well at 4 months old. Fingers crossed these two get some crazy random stretch mid flower lol. If you made it this far, I’m sorry for the long winded description! Hope you enjoyed. 😎💚🌱

      Thanks John. Always trying to get more efficient. With all the products out there it can be really overwhelming. I recently came across a lesson on YouTube. It was on plant biology for growing weed, and understanding what a plant needs at specific times, and the importance of even the slightest imbalance of nutrients. It opened my eyes to how much we can really dial in growing to maximize a strain’s potential.

      Not so easy to do in leca clay. I was thinking that if I stay with this method, I'd put a bunch of rooters around the top of the pot, on top of the leca so I'll have something to anchor my training wire. The breakage was caused by not being able to point the training wire straight down.

      Live and learn! It's fun, and once they get going, they do grow fast!!

        Even though I try to be, I’m not gentle. A LST is HST for my plants lol fortunately they’re very resilient. After a while you get really good at mending wounds

        oldjarhead100 I already drilled holes in my net pots. They help.

        CaptainWiese91 I'm subbed!

        bboyfromwayback I have mended so many branches with adhesive tape, but these were goners, I could tell. I taped one of em and she stayed tiny while the other side was growing bigger: hence, mainlining sabotaged. So I cut them off and started again. Sigh...

        Hopefully the remaining colas get HUGE!

      Banana Kush day 7 of 12/12. Released the colas the other day. So far they’ve grown 5” since the switch.

        Mainlining definitely takes up some time, but I'm diggin it. I can really SEE what's going on, and I love the idea of all colas getting the same nutes from the roots.

        Growing in soil I only manifold plants if they’ll be vegged for 8wks minimum and 10-12wks seem to do better. If you’re doing a perpetual harvest and only vegging 4-6 wks they just don’t get big enough. I’ve found strains that stretch a lot after flipping to flower don’t do very well with this type of training. I’ve been doing a lot of manifolds since I started growing autos. They give plenty of time to veg and a manifold is perfect because they slow the growth down some so they don’t outgrow my tent

      9x Fat banana currently in veg stage . End of week 6 and 4 for them,
      no bud porn yet - I apologize 😁. Really hope it’s worth to go these extra weeks in veg with a mainline than just Normal topping with lollipopping or a defoliation.
      But I quess we will see in the end when the yield is coming.
      Happy growing
      Capt.

        Greetings !
        I’m sitting on my phone and doing all this.
        I will try too find a way to the link. Give me a couple of minutes

        Yea, different formations is a good way to call my first main line 👍🏻😂. Some have 8 main stems, one have 7 and the majority have 6. I ended up with some mutants on my hand, so I think this is why I have “different formations” 😁

        Well I’m a veteran and my job in the infantry had nothing to do with computers and phones, so I’m sorry with the link.
        But I copied the full name of my thread which is : Fat Banana Grow Diary/ Viparspectra R900 VS. Lumatek Attis 300W

        I hope you can find it there, or SoOrbudgal is in there she can definitely help you

      Okay I here’s some later pics of my grow into flower..I guess?.... I have no idea why but this thing is flowering much much earlier then then my other three plants. Pics are from 31st July

      sorry about having no current full picture. I forgot and can only get to my plants once a week.

      I’ll attach A full Plant picture From the 25th July and it didn’t have the flowers nearly as much back then

      I threw another plant into the post as well
      The plant next to the birdhouse & petunias is a July 31st picture and another bag seed plant trained to 8 main in 7 gallons before going into 30’s.

        I am jelly of your beautiful outdoor plants. This is what i hoped for but again a poor outdoor run this season for me. Well i had very early preflower EthnicColeslaw way to early. They reverted back to veg and this month should start seeing flowering in couple weeks if not sooner. Outstanding job in caring and growing

      My 1st autoflower grown outdoors. A Double Grape x White Crack. Let her go natural all the way. Grown in soil but have added a weak nutrient solution a couple times during flowering with high PK. Otherwise just water ph' @ 6.5 The main cola is fatter then my arm I think. Pistils just starting to turn brown.

      Proof that at times less is more. Yummy looking grow. I just bought 3grams of wedding cake flower and we really enjoyed it now it's on my list of top 5 seed holdings.

        This has been my worst year yet! The grapefruit and one mystery GSC look ok, but the granddaddy purples are sad. Oh well.....

              Well that was not fun after posting a update but needed to go back and review it erased all the photo and writings so here i go again but shorter now out of patience for doing things over lately

              Pic. 5 and 6 are before i did a major over haul on all outdoor photos. I have cut out and shaved off all old growth best i can took hrs. several times over a period of about 2wks. I did not do it all in one day took parts off over time. Took 2 lbs of odd leaf, warty funky old calyx if you blow them up maybe you can see the damage i've done but really helped them recover. Still not sure they will produce much don't really care i just hated this grow this summer since i F'd up so bad early.

              Pic 1, 2, 3 are after the crazy lady barber took major defoiliation and branches off. Today this is how they look. Pic 4 is a lemon haze near finish there's 3 of those on da roof in black fabric and 2 lemon skunk X that are taller than any auto i've had now. Also there a 4 white lights auto but heck i'm lucky i could find these and upload them. Giggle wants me to buy a new phone and i'm balking

                Best all day sun is on the roof. I can carry these 3gal and 5gal all day long but the larger photos are carted around the yard for sun.

                Thank you all for the very nice comments means a bunch i'm rather fond of our place lived her almost 30yrs lots more neighbors now a days. Yes the flat top roof over the patio works great all day sun. I just move them to shaded steps if it gets over 90f then it's like 120f or more up there. I use to put photo or 2 up there but i can't lift those bigger pots up 3 flights of stairs anymore LOL they must weight near 50lbs when wet. Growgood88 you are going to love that cheesecake cross what a pretty auto and fast and strong. I'm going to do those again

                Thanks soorbudgal if u or anyone wants any auto original northern lights s1 seeds to trade or just need some I'm looking 4 strong stuff there 15 weeks seed to harvest. Anyway pm me if interested.

              Week 4 on my mainline stretchy sativa vine lol.
              the colas look like they will be awesome.
              I sure ended up with a challenging plant to control in mainline, in a 5 foot tall tent. These seeds are crazy. My friend has one outside. 9 feet 8.
              My manifold looks like a pretzel lol.

              One of my mentors said I should strip it higher. Opinions?
              he thinks I should pop off those bottom four or five satellite buds
