    Puglover1 hey so I’m not understanding what you mean what pictures icon you mean the camera icon where you write your comments at next to the paper clip looking thing if so I will try it later today another thing my plant leaves look like they have ribs in the leaves like something burned it in spots I will take pictures here soon. I just don’t know what kind of flower nutrients I need to use I have looked and asked every where and I can’t get a straight answer from anyone but I guess I will just wing it and get something and see what happens I appreciate your advice I did untie Her but she doesn’t look like she is growing any bigger I feel like she has stopped getting bigger in the last 3 days I don’t see any difference but I could be wrong but thanks for the advice frfr thanks

        That's the way! They look healthy. They usually won't grow inches overnight, and they're not really old, the budlets look good. The 2nd pic is stretching more, they all seem to have light getting through to the bottoms. Let them see what they want to do then you can decide if you want to tie stems or leaves down again for light penetration. Bloom food-wise, can you ask who makes the soil you bought, or research the bloom product options for answers regarding what they work with or not ... read reviews? I know of bloom boosters but not about using your soil.

      If it makes you feel any better, here's a dwarf Northern Lights Auto at 3 months, 3 days old. I'm use molasses in my waterings. With photos many growers flush/water with molasses and pH'd water before harvest, some use it during the full flowering cycle. Autos can be weird.

          Leaves look healthy, nice color. Pistils same, a few are darkening. I see one plant looks like it's stretching nicely.

          In pic #7 can you see the budlets/pistils that are below fan leaves? You might need to clip off a few fans, train, or tuck and fold so that those lower buds get light penetration. From above you want to see light get through to the soil level, from the top of the plant.

        I hope she gets a lot more thicker cuz the buds are no bigger than a nickel maybe a little bit bigger than a nickel

          That's just the beginning, those buds should stack into nice nugs, they get thicker in diameter, tight when you squeeze them when they're getting closer to harvest. Most pistils will turn darker, curl inward. Nice frost on the leaves, keep doing what you're doing? Have you found a bloom booster product yet? (I couldn't open the 3 pics above, it happens here at times, nothing you did wrong) I'd like to see farther away pics, to see the buds on the branches from the side, to see what's growing up.

        Puglover1 here I cut some more of the fan leaves how’s this look now cuz most of the fan leaves are still not long enough to get a good cut on them

          I had to open in new tab then enlarge but it distorts up to a point. This seems to happen in long threads or with a lot of pics, or I need to clear my cache? Anyway, can you see how much more light is getting to the middle buds in the last pic? That will help them grow up bigger. I wouldn't remove any more leaves, don't want to stunt them. In the 1st or 2nd pic I saw thicker buds. On my first grow I was amazed to see how it all develops into big fat colas. Just let them recover from the leaf removal, keep environment good, don't stress, patience.

          I can see them in the small pics I just can't click on them to see larger like usual - it happens to most of us on here at some point. I don't know why, but then it works normally again. The look good, let them fill up, frost up and fatten up. I'll try looking again later. I cleared cache on my laptop, it's just a site thing, nothing you did.

          Puglover1 hey yeah she is stretching some and looking a little bit thicker just think I look at her so much I don’t see the difference my girl Says it is definitely getting big cuz she doesn’t see it every day but just wanted to say thanks for the advice I’ll post new pictures in a few days she is at 41 days today I’m wondering if she actually will be done sooner then it says or not I need to learn what the color of the trichome should be when ready to harvest I’ll figure it out happy growing everyone

            OK, I was able to open a few of your pics. The first set the pistils look great but still light-colored. The 2nd set of pics the colors might not be true on the pistils but those colas are still growing buds that will form into bigger, tighter nugs. They look great, healthy. So do you think the defoliating of leaves helped them grow more? Just be sure to not remove the biggest fan leaf on each cola, they power the plant. When you do take close ups to check trich colors focus on the pistils/bud trichs not the leaves' trich colors, when looking at amber %.

            Puglover1 ok got it Thanks for the advice I just see a lot of YouTube videos and my autoflower just really looks really really small I don’t know why but it’s not even 12in tall like I’m just not seeing the mistake I’m having here i a just trying to figure out what I did wrong cuz the grow details about my autoflower states it should be at least 3 feet tall and mine is nowhere near that just a little bummed about that like I can send pictures but pictures don’t really show like the buds are no bigger than a quarter round if that I really thought it would be a way bigger plant just kinda disappointed at the moment well I am going to start my next autoflower this weekend sometime it’s called blue dynamite hopefully it will be a better grow the second time just don’t know why the grape cookies is so small like a foot tall that’s it kinda sad lol but it’s whatever I just have to go with it and be happy with what I get from it just wish I would have known what I did wrong so I don’t fuck up again you know but it cool thanks for the advice

            Autos, hybrids can be totally different phenos, like sisters and brothers in a human family. You seem to have a good environment and they look healthy. I'm about to finish my 2nd grow/1st autos and my plants were 4-5" inches tall at 12 weeks. I'll be lucky to get an 1/8th ounce out of one NL dwarf, after drying and the stems' weight subtracted. I understand expecting what you see in pics but some of these folks have been growing for decades, experience, knowledge, or it's their strain, or light. Sorry, could be better could be worse. Trust me. You still have time on this one, it'll get better before it's done.
