    To boldly LST where no Chopstick technique has gone before...

    Well after 3 grows of using this technique I might be on something here. The real challenge I had was with my first full auto grow. No topping, no super cropping ... Just a plain old method I read a few years back. So why not giving it a chance I say. Now I'm at on my second full auto grow with this technique.

    My aim is to get as much "tops" by keeping my girls short and chubby under the light.

    My goal with my Neville Haze Ryder is to achieve 9 "tops" so far I see 6 "tops" after 5 weeks. Soon I'll be using my 2 feet Chopstick.

        WoW that was quick mine are alot slower about the same age also. I know my issue is temps. they don't like the cool damp at all but there still growing and getting big LOL. My autos are outdoors uncovered unless i move them into garage. They are 28" tall from dirt to top of canopy man i pray i don't have problems going forward with mold or WPM as these are in early flowering stage.

        Well, at least there won't be 7 dwarves. Basil is looking good. Neville looks quite healthy. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise I might start my protective herbs, flowers and an Alaskan Purple auto for outdoors this week. 100 degrees tomorrow, I might as well play in dirt indoors.

        Bonjour toi Puglover1 !! Yup looks like I'm getting more than 2 dwarves, maybe 3 or 4 but I can't figure why !! Serious Seeds are supposed to be good genetic but then it's their first try at AK-47 autos... After my 12 WT autos (next grow) I'm going back to photos.

      How you feeling about this grow so far Farmbuck are you happy with the way these autos are growing? They sure look healthy but so short to me? No offence meant at all i just did'nt expect to see them this small an going into flower. We have no choice when they decide to do so i know is it the breeder issue ?

        SoOrbudgal I'm not having much luck with this second full auto grow western friend. First i lost all of my 12 WT autos but got replaced. Now half of my AK-47 auto are dwarves but healthy. The Neville is at a decent size same as Larry Lemon. Could it be because I'm running at 20/4 ?? But then the Neville would be the same size as the Ak-47 girls non ? Anyway after this grow I will attempt with my 12 WT autos and after I'm going back to photos.

        My humidity is 50-54%
        The temp is a bit higher a hot 29C during light.
        I'm feeding them in moderation.

      Well, I would never want you to beat my 3.5 gram NL waste of time. That entire auto grow was a waste. I should decarb what's left of it and throw some other remains into the InstaPot to make canna coco-oil for gummies. If I start early it can run until bedtime.

          Thanks mon ami I needed that !! Somehow I feel that one will look like yours or maybe two or three... I still have 12 WT autos so I'm sure I'll tossed a few in my next grow with photos.
