    Entering week 9 now and starting to see signs of the end on the 2 big plants.. Pistils are beginning to turn, there’s frost on the sugar leaves and they’re starting to smell good. The one on the left looks she’ll be a heavy yielder with big fat colas all the way down the stems. The 3rd auto is now into flower and beginning her stretch so we’ll see what comes of it. I would definitely echo Nebula’s newsletter by saying that topping this plant definitely seems to have induced flower a lot earlier than the other 2.

    No you definitely don’t want to stop using nutes just now. Your plants look like they have a good bit to go yet. Only stop with the nutes when you see cloudy trichs then just plain water to flush

      Thanks MagicMike
      Aha... I like different points of view! Will look veery closely for cloudy trichs!
      Wish I had a steady macro camera since old age sight and old shaky hands makes it difficult holding the jewelers loupe.

    Looking good madman. Still see plenty of white pistols. Another week or two I think.

    when the leaves begin yellowing all over the plant then it's time to harvest...you are not quite there yet but good job.
    I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

    Madman she looks plenty healthy. Won't be long now. At this point your only a week or two away I wouldn't stress your pH on this one. This is what I've been chasing too. The miracle grow organics I use does not have enough lime to buffer the pH of my water for the entire grow so I'm experimenting with pot size and dolomite lime amendment amounts. With that said you want to keep the pH during flower 6.5-7. mine drops about mid flower and the dreaded brown spots appear. Congratulations.

      Thanks, I'm on my toes...
      I just got an answer from Canna apologizing for the delay, yeah that's OK, better late than never.
      For now I'll just keep watering as I've done until harvest time.
      Do you think I should stop with nutes, only water? Maybe start with flush?
      Next project I will start to be more careful with setting the exact PH.

      Hello Going2fast
      Curious about this you mention "mine drops about mid flower and the dreaded brown spots appear"?
      Could you show me some pictures of this? Today noticed brown spots on 2 big old low fan leaves on one plant.
      I think it can be mechanical scraping damage from when watering, I removed them anyway

    The bud pic one I would do water only. The whole plant pics look like they are still swelling.

    Week 11 for the 2 big autos at the back, the one on the right is just about there, she’s coming down next weekend. The other is still putting out white pistils so she’s got a bit to go. The 3rd auto that I topped will be a runt in comparison to these but will still hopefully get some fat nugs of it.

      My tent is getting packed so time to snip off a few sample buds. I’ve already tried one joint of this last week and it’s absolutely delicious! The plant has had plain water for the last 2 weeks and Monday will likely be the last watering before harvest in 5 days time.

        First of the big autos came down yesterday. Providing there’s no issues this is going to be a decent yield off these. Early sampling tells me this will be some nice stuff. Pretty happy with my first run of autos.

          I had one experience with an auto and it was by accident. The beans were supposed to be photos. That said I raised, cloned and manifolded them like they were photo. It was not until week 7 under 18/6 light and they popped flowers that the truth came out.

          The cloned autos.

          Idk how the clone thing happened, as everything I read said it could not be done but here is the proof that it can be done. I took the shoots from the #1 node when they were quite little. Maybe that had something to do with it. The first 2 flowered much sooner than the clones. The clones were rather small and about 1/2 was lost to bud rot.

          Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

            Last of the autos harvested today, glad to get it out the tent and let the photos bloom. This plant was topped and (attempted) to LST but almost as soon as it was topped, the stems turned into very brittle sticks so it was just left to grow. she’s really packed on some weight in the last few weeks and has produced 7 short, fat and stinky colas. Going by the smell of this one, it’s going to be by far the best bud out of the 3 so maybe the lighter yield will be worth it.

              That’s the last of the autos dried and jarred now.
              auto #1 - 7oz
              auto #2 - 5.5oz
              auto #3 - 3.5oz
              I grew these to top up my yield for this summer as I lost a few plants so they’ve definitely did what I needed them to and more! I loved growing these as I found them much easier than a photo plant as I just fed them and left alone. I’ve already got a stock of new auto beans in the fridge that I’m going to run on the back of my current photo grow. The last auto is by far going to be the best quality as it already smells potent af! Away for a sample joint and think about my next run of autos.
