    Starting week 7, day 43 My WW Auto girls finally needed watering. The two I flushed went 7 days since their flush. Runoff is better now…5.8-6.1 pH range. Quarter strength Bloom added every watering. Too light? Still Stretching 1” a day. ~29” tall. Hopefully my 7’ closet is enuf. They don’t seem to like when the light gets <24”. They look happy and have budlets now. Are they slow or am I antsy?

      Farmall As a norm, when we catch it on a plant well cut it out and everything close. Rot travels. It’s really only a problem on density. Every year here in Kentucky I’ve dealt with it, minus a yr here n there. It did piss me off about this grapefruit tho. The trichomes are barely cloudy and it still had another month of growth left. Funny thing is how in my bathroom where it hanging and the door open, it’s so strong smelling that I can literally taste it! It’s no record breaker, but it’s the biggest cola I’ve ever had in almost 30 yrs. I’m even throwing my mom into the mix where she’s been growing for 60 yrs and it’s the biggest for her too...lol.
      Hope you’re doing well bro

      Retodd All is ok..thanks.. this is the only Autoflower in the bunch. I Should have chopped it 3 weeks ago but the trichs were just not ready. I’d also never have gone outdoors were it not for the power outage but the sunlight did a damn nice job swelling the flowers only the rain and nighttime humidity worked against it. Great feeling when it comes together

      I have found over the years that when I see bud rot I cut the kola off below the rot this kinda stops it from spreading ,then I process the bud and use it , we have taken whole plants do to rot its no fun anyway you look at it

    All done and have my shake and leaves in trays for making honey hash this winter once all plants are done.

      You got a more in detail formula? Seems easy. So you just shoot the butane through the tube and the honey comes out the other side? You just fill it with trim? I just got some bubblebags

      thats what I call wax and we do a run every fall but its so dangerous we do it outside still we do it every year ,I love the stuff if you get it to wax consistence then you can weigh it out and cook with it I must say 3.5 grams makes 4 dozen ass kickin cookies lol
      that being said have you tried bubble hash ,I just got one of those mini washers and I'm getting ready to run a bunch of stuff watch the tutorial on it ,it works great and is so much safer lol

      oldjarhead100 Yeah, I’ll make it on my porch under my ceiling fan and definitely not smoking...lol. I’ve never had bubble hash. I give my hash away. My neighbor is buying the canisters this winter when I make it and I’m giving him 75% and saving 25% for another friend of mine.

    the girls hit 2 weeks on Sunday so it was time to train them again heres a before and after

      Those little washing machines with the bubble bags are awesome!!
      I wash mine 3 times and get really nice bubble hash.
      i even tried grinding and washing this jar of roaches I had since I just can’t stand smoking them. They turned out pretty good too!!

        oldjarhead100 thanks! Yes I’ve read the tutorial. It’s very helpful and such a great resource!

      Despite the fact I have some kind of soil bugs, all plants are still stacking up and looking good.

          Thank you - it's trial and error really - still - have 4 more Blueberry seeds and 12 Purple Kush seeds. They grow all different from each other - the same strains. I like to let them grow the way they want - usually - so these next 3 coming up haven't been topped and training on only one.

          Don't be afraid to cut off perfectly forming fan leaves early on - first few weeks for sure and definitely before pistils begin. Your cutting off leaves overhanging bud sites coming off the stem - exposing them makes them turn into branches which shoot up alongside main cola. All in all you cut off 8 leaves - not at once but as they come up - i have cut off 4 at once and the plant looks hilarious but a few days later you look like a genius.
          That is - if you're not topping but letting her grow the way she wants - little training to make those branches grow away from the main stem never hurts- especially in the long run of it all.
          Here's another tip - the first nodes branches - both of them - usually don't amount to much come harvest time as i find they will never grow as good as even the second nodes branches. I let them develop early on - but around 8th or 9th node - snip snip.

        Well the key component to my third grow has arrived. 17 autos for my new 5x5 😎😁. This will be my first big grow.

          So mr. Canuck
          My autos are 14 to 16 days should I take tuck leaves or should I cut them off one every other day if they’re blocking branch sites

        Silver Surfer in CoM Stonington Blend with a liquid squid amendment (she's been in the same pot since February). I don't have room for my full grow tent, so she's in a sunny-as-possible windowsill now and I'm trying to figure out how I can hang my grow light. I'm hoping she'll get some of the flowering stretch out before I get the tent up; I know this unorthodox lighting may hurt yields/potency, but I have 3 clones from her that are nowhere near starting to flower. There are some dry leaves near the bottom of the branches that I'm keeping an eye on; it may just be those are being cannibalized due to the stupidly long veg time (I did that! I did that! That's my fault!).

            Sweet thanks for confirming. OJ I’ll take your advice and open one up for a look to double check

          The Alaskan purple auto is almost finished. She in the flush faze getting some Flawless Finish and Silica Boost. Did you know trichomes are made of silica, and adding a silica boost can encourage trichomes growth?! I’d say it’s worked on this plant!

          The other two are about 3.5 weeks old. I have one in a 2gal pot with soil and the other in a 4gal fabric pot with cocoa. This is my first time growing in cocoa and it definitely won’t be the last. I feel like the plants grow much quicker and more lush in cocoa as long as you have the nutrients dialed in. I started using a new Veg base nutrient and she’s absolutely loving it.

          I’m coming up on my first full year of growing and it has been quite the ride. I finally feel like I’m getting a good grasp on plant biology and what nutrients I’m going to consistently use going forward. What a fun hobby!

            I've seen big buds bend a stem over but I've never seen them bend the whole plant over well done ,I give silica blast every watering until bloom then I back off . There is a reason for this I just can't remember it right now lol
