      Thanks Budgal. They sure did turn a corner didn't they. I'm excited to see how these do with a strong start!

    Well hell- I think they might just pull off a decent grow!! Thankfully they didn't flower on schedule either & had a chance to catch up a lil bit. The last 2 Lemon Skunk popped today & the LS x Northern Lights are goin STRONG! I love sunlight!!

        So should I be clipping a few of these big fan leaves?
        Also look at the difference (2nd pic) between Lab Rat who spent 2-3wks inside under a 12hr schedule compared to her sisters..... it looks like I have an experiment to run....

          Are these not just a kick once you get the hang of them JDU? I'm having a blast setting these up every 3wks progressively harvesting autos. Some of mine are at all stages feels so good to have some curing now and shortly harvesting more. Great job JDU

        JDU they're looking good! I'm also in the middle of my first grow and doing autos. I have a Northern Lights (NL) and Amnesia going right now on the side of my deck. The NL has some buds showing also. We seem to be pretty close in the grow cycle. I just trimmed a few fan leaves off of each plant today to make sure the bottom of the plant is getting enough sunlight. Keep up the good work and happy growing!

        Phase 3- 2 more pure Lemon Skunk (up front & far left) are 16 days old today & goin strong!

        To admit that you were wrong is to declare that you are wiser now than you were before & I'm on the bar- buyin the house a drink & yellin out, "Autos ain't so bad!!!" 🤠

          Are you seeing white pistils? If not, just snap the fuck out of them.
          But if you have white pistils, I wouldn’t

          I won't top mine but I have trimmed off some of the bigger fan leaves every so often, especially from the top so the bottom sections can get some sunlight.

        #25
        It was 93° here today so I waited til dusk when it cooled off to snip so it's too dark for pics but I took 3-5 fan leaves from each bud on the 4 Strawberry Cheesecake crosses & then anything that was overtaken with WPM or blocking a lower bud.
        The N. Lights crosses I got crazy.... I FIMed each & every top node. Even the main colas. The last 2 pure Lemon Skunk are still young & I ain't decided what treatment they're gonna get.

        & Pheeeeeeee yewwwww!!!!!!! After stirring em up like that...... if the neighbor thought the skunks were after his chickens before...... he's gonna be outside guarding em all night tonight!!!! Lolol. I TOLD him I had smelled it too & know that smell & that someone in the neighborhood was growin weed but he wasn't convinced.

          Here they are this mornin. It looks like FIMing works like supercropping..... the NL have grown an easy 2in overnight & there's finally some growth on the lower nodes!
          Not too bad the oldest 4 huh? Considering I was ready to pull em a month ago. I think I'll git more'n an 1/8 between the 4 lololol....

          Current pics of my first grow Northern Lights and Amnesia about 7 weeks into the cycle. The Northern Lights seems to be doing well. I'm not sure about the Amnesia but it appears healthy.

            I tried to breed CJ to Amnesia Haze, Blueberry, CJ, GG, LS x SC, LS x NL, NL, NYC, OG and Strawberry Cheesecake but I left home the day the pollen sacks began to open so I just had to leave the pollinators amidst the rest of the flowering recipients. I expected out of control pollination and seeds everywhere but it looks like we got very little pollination even with hundreds of pollen sacks opening in the same tent! Some plants that were literally touching the plants that produced pollen appear to have no seeds. I guess I should have put a fan blowing directly across the pollen sacks into the rest. Amnesia Haze and Blueberry look to have a dozen or two each, the others will likely be single digits if they make any at all. I know we have at least a couple GG and CJs1. I planted a couple of regular Northern Lights x LSD autos from Boreal but they didn't auto and one was a boy who added lady parts to his resume.

            Oh wow. I guess pollen ain't as aggressive as we thought. I hope I got any photo seeds.

          RIP Phase 1.
          Even in 100° temps there was enough moisture in the leaves & resin in the buds that WPM flourished & overtook the Cheesecake crosses. Bagged & tagged & in the dumpster. 😥
          Like SoOrbudgal said- Oregon is too humid to start plants outdoors before mid to late June. I don't think I'm gonna try a greenhouse grow this Winter either- it would be a waste of seeds n dirt.
          Well..... live n learn 😑

            I hope you never see it Amigo. This is my 1st outdoor grow. I do have 3 more just starting to flower & 1 more a couple wks behind. Hopefully I got the spores out of there before these'ns git sticky & hold on to any remaining spores & do the same. I ordered some Lost Coast plant therapy tonight... Shitty shit shit this sucks!!

            Were any of the others affected? I'm trying my best to keep track of things and find out which ones are susceptible and resistant to WPM, mold, bud rot, etc. (this is the first major issue so far) .Me doing everything indoors up to this point and having pretty good luck and no mold, mildew, bugs, etc. kinda hampers me from being able to fully know what these things will do when introduced to these things. I provide lots of environmental stressors like heat, humidity, high winds and snapping branches by hand from time to time testing strength but still try to avoid mold and mildew as much as possible since everything I do is in one room.
