    Took the girls out for watering/feeding - fed them a tea blend (bird poo/worm stuff...) - I water in the sink with 2 containers 2 gallons each. With 3 plants these 4 gallons are best for me - always get runoff and the containers are easier to measure the nutes and stuff. Phed to 6.4.

    Bruce is going to be a good one - the little abuse i gave her hasn't slowed her at all. Reset her bindings to allow for the vertical growth - don't want to hold her down.

    Lucy is a slow one - working on node 5.. She strikes me as an autoflower that is not going to be tall.

    Cookies I chopped off her first node - branches are almost ready for a little training - working on node 5.

    And while myself and I did all this - it was me who wiped down the inside of the tent.

      I'm following along with great interest. Nice photos & great looking plants.
      Thanks for showing every step Canuck147 👍🏻 I plan on sowing my first ever Autos as soon as my grow area is clear from a massive Purple Trainwreck & Sugar Breath both in 13th week of flower Is it any wonder I want to try Autos?!

        Bruce lost some leaves - needed em to get outta da way. Started on the next set of branches for LST.

        Now I'm not trying for any mainline/quad or whatever - just attempting to get the branches growing apart from each other. For WPM protection .

        She looks funny now - just wait a couple of days.

          Oh Bruce! She'll be alright, looks so healthy & vibrant.
          What hours have you started on? 18 light, 24hr or another if you don't mind telling me.
          You & your plants are going to be like good friends to us following you know.🙂

          it's in my signature - 18/6 - used to go 20/4 - but my Cree COB doesn't have that in the timer - so its easier to let the timer in the light do t b e on/off for me.
          Don't want to go 24/7 cuz I don't want to burn out my light too fast.

          Oops, forgot the signature info. I'm new here.
          Thanks for answering, totally agree ~ I would go with 18/6 too.
          Began my photo grow at 18/6 & they all did great.

        Cookies here - started LST on first set of branches - which is the second node. Node number 6 is working its way up - once there's enough to snip off - then it'll happen.

          With autoflowers one has to start it early - sometimes- most times their stems are quite thick and not very pliable.

        Now Lucy here I'm undecided on what to do with her - her nodes are really close together as well as her branches are taking their time growing. So just so she didn't feel left out - I snipped off 2 leaves to let some light on her small jumbled mess . As well to find out if she likes being hacked at.

          She is a tight node gal when i have a auto like this all i ever do is top and remove large fans blocking the bud site. This is where nimble fingers and feeling for the branches pliablility? I break branches with these short node autos so i leave it alone. But it can be done, i just am not doing anymore damage to it LOL

        Enjoying & appreciating seeing all these stages of training.
        Lucy looks reticent & needs to be teased out gently. 🙂 Alot like my photo Sugar Breath did, showing Indica traits, almost there at 13weeks flower.
        None of that with Autos! I'm so looking forward to planting for first Auto grow.

              Oopsie - someone broke a branch
              I told you guys so - now you're gonna make me look like a moron.
              Hey - me resembles that.
              You should - every time you look in a mirror you see one.
              What happened?
              Well me and myself have been doing most of the work lately - we weren't being very forceful at all and it just kinda sagged down all of a sudden.
              Amputation.

              Okay we talked it over and a third nodal branch broke so we decide to let the branch below it creep up and fill the space

                I had almost that same talk with me, he's my helper. We had the talk right after me cut off the wrong branch thinking it was the bottom branch of a over under node, but it was a side by side node. Hope that made sense lol I didn't know how to describe it

              Watered and fed the girls full strength nutes. Looks like Bruce will be okay - LST is progressing as I've shown you in the past pics.

              Lucy is still a slow grower.

              Hey why aren't we posting pics like before?before we been busy with contractors/technicians and stuff. Don't have time.
              But it's not hard to post.
              So if we post pics everyday then no one's going to see a change.
              Besides - doesn't appear many are paying attention anyways.

                Me is here. Not sure I am or where He is but you got Me attention. 😁

                Timing was perfect too, I have 3 autos about a week behind yours so Me will truly be following along after 3 more sets of leaves.

                  I can tell ya how I did- I took way to many fan leaves for her to finish....Most of the rest that aren't so tight noded look better though

                These are the reg. auto seeds not fems i got as replacements of the other all male autos.....so i've not done much work on them. They sit in a tent on the outside screen patio not doing to great do to weeks of cold out there. They are 3 to 4 wks old looking kinda boyish but we'll have to wait longer to see. Perfect day i mean it's 83f clear as a blue sky could be. Got a couple more autos in the tent all the same strain as this just wanted to get these out of my seed cuboard.

                  They look good really. To me - they look a little love srarved. I can see it - how they are just sitting there looking a little lethargic.

                  Most of the time the tall ones end up the males. Maybe you'll get two ladies and a tall man out of it
