    Autoflower training

    2 out of 3 said to do this - I didn't want to. So it's just me and myself doing the input here.
    Little background - not getting frustrated but White Powdery Mold is not my friend. Yet it likes to show up. If it shows early on before pistils start I have no problem spraying them with a product made by Safer's - Defender Garden Fungicide. Just be careful how you mix it - too strong and the plant will let you know.

    Last plant I harvested the other day went all the way to the end with no WPM. Other 2 plants were harvested just a tad earlier than I wanted. Oh well. WPM was setting in and couldn't wait - chopped one down in 20 minutes.

    Once one sees the WPM coming on - you have to do something about it. Had I waited another day - I would have lost more than the 10%I threw away.

    Anyways- I have 3 growing now -autoflowers grown in Promix HP soil - 2 gallon Geopots - first-pic they had only been fed plain water - second pic us 3 days later after being watered and fed a smattering of Green Planet nutrients.

    They are 3 different strains from Crop King Seeds - LSD - Girl Scout Cookies - Bruce Banner

    What I plan on doing is LST probably before topping - I'll top off the sixth node and the first nodes branches. I want to grow the 8 or 9 colas that come up apart from each other. If the first nodes branches are growing strong I'll leave them to grow - weak branches are going to be cut - past experience tell me they don't usually amount to much anyways.

    Me and myself will be giving updates as we see fit.

    Alltight OK? I'm talking now - reasoning behind not wanting to do a journal kinda thingie is cuz we never have a perfect grow. Now those other 2 want to show all our mistakes and those other times when we really fuck up and forget something. Yeah - duh - no geniuses here - just our usual stoned self.

    Self? Now is that just 1 entity or all three of us? Click image for larger version

                  Good day
                  Put those pics on from another computer which my wife is now using. Guess I hurried a bit cuz I only took 4 pics - ended up with a few doubles.

                  Looks like all 3 are working on their 3rd nodes. Guesstimate is they are about 20 days old - wasn't paying attention at the start then decided to write this.

                  Took the girls out of the tent for pics - whilst out of the tent - I wiped down the inside with lysol wipes - this I do every time we take them out. Always sweep up one or two spiders - no Flys in the tent for them to trap. Reminds me I need to get some fly strips Was easy wiping today with the light much lower.

                  Other reason to take them out was for watering - they look dry on top - but - still a bit of weight to the pots. I'm not knocking new growers here - BUT - most new growers would water.

                  I'll let them get good and dry - let the fabric pots do what they do best - allow for air into the root system. Happy roots lead to quality plants.

                  Here's another pic from my tablet thingie

                  All five of us think those are some lovely little girls! Just wondering, did myself ever show up? Strange it should just disappear like that. Does this happen often? 2 or 3 must be feeling lonely with just me for company.
