    Took the girls out for pics and to reset their bindings. They have all perked up since that second feeding of full strength nutrients.

    Lucy up first - she pouted for a few days after losing only 2 leaves and then topped. So if any LST happens in will be a bit later
    Those 2 leaves I've separated shows her topping - plus I really wanted to cut those two leaves off - decide to wait as she seems to be growing again. Click image for larger version

        Well it's long story Canuck147 short reply is they were in a really crappy enviornment for first month in that tent. Also i do believe it's do to 20 on 4 off ? I had to use that time cause it was so cold out there and LEDs gave little heat then i had chicken coop heater for heat which helped but??? No longer use that heat it's warm during day now and got both vipar 450 in that 3x3. I fed them 1x with FF grow big my soil is enriched with worm casing, coco coir and perilite plus recycled potting soil could be needs more but i'm not sure could be small containers. Those worked good in other auto grow but not sure with this round ? Maybe compacted ?

        I did'nt want to slow them with too much as i don't know their sex? I got amnesia haze autos in that tent also in same containers wanted a SOG grow in there not turning out as planned yet LOL

          Growing regular seeds is different - odds are in your favor Budgal for not producing males.

        MeEasy maybe hope so. They are strong looking abit droopy needed a nap maybe? I don't know i'll never grow these again anyway to many males in this strain of reg. auto seeds. La Berry Fruita ( I don't want no dangling berries ) but then again if i did get i female and rest boys i'm gonna put her in my outdoor hippie tent and let that pollen go all over her. Will they be 50/50 m-f ?

          I could pop a thousand Ghost Train Haze seeds and see how the male/female split looks for homemade seeds.

          There's no guarantees when making seeds, I grew mostly reg seeds and many years the average was definitely not 50% I think reg seeds grow better weed but in these tents it really sucks to only get 2 or 3 females out of 10 seeds. Like you are growing through now..... so the answer to your question is, maybe... lol sorry best I can do

          Edit = I had to come back and add I prolly had the same number of years with 8 out of 10 females

          I've projected down the road regarding my strategy with regs and realized that even with more seeds than I can use for one strain, that I will eventually be steered toward finding a "holy grail" of a female and cloning her ad infinitum rather than starting twice the seeds I need then culling males every grow. The nice thing is, with enough seed stored away, I can always start over if she croaks or I get my fill. The deal with autos, even with regular auto seeds is that they push you toward buying auto fems over and over out of convenience. On the nicer side, with auto regs you can refine the strain to your liking with selective breeding if you have the means and the patience and still get the benefits of autoflowers.

        Took the kids outside for watering and feeding - full strength nutes - readjusted their bindings to allow for their slight vertical growth. Adjusted the light as well - love these ratchet systems each click moves them 1/4 inch.

        Lucy lost 4 leaves - see how much she pouts this time. I don't think it will be long - they like their nutrients.

          I'm still following your grow. Been busy with harvest 🙂 Just my Sugar Breath left to chop.
          Your plants are doing really nice, thanks for sharing your steps. My Auto seeds are calling me from fridge to be planted, exciting to choose which.

            Canuck147 Don't be ascared bro, I took a couple of autos and just out of curiosity and boredom I did everything we're told not to do with autos. I topped em trimmed em tied em down then topped em again spread em out and topped em yet again, and stripped em butt nekid. And around week 5 took a couple of trimmings and cloned em. Damn I'm such a rebel! Well, the clones I just let grow untouched. Huh, ended up with a two foot tall bud. I've a few pics, I'll show you up under her skirt at what I like to think of as a sex line... three mains. Granted this did extend the grow. time wise, but who cares eh?I dropped the seeds on 12/1 and called it quits around the end of March. Oh yeah they are sweet tooth autos. They say "you can't do that!"

              Pulling two more branches down on Lucy.

              Question for whoever is paying attention - Need an external addition of some kind on my pots to continue LST in near future - any ideas?

              I already know what I'm going to be using - any guesses?

                I know they can take 18/6 all grow, do you take flower hours down to 12/12?
                Happy growing, thanks.
