    1st grow - 5th week of 12/12 - timeline questions/what to expect

    I’m in the 5th week of 12/12. I have some nice looking buds. I’m curious what I should plan for in terms of timeline? 3-4 more weeks? Can you estimate the yield (not super important, just curious)? Any sage advice for this stage of the game?

    This has been a lot of fun so far, mostly thanks to this community!

    Strain: blue dream
    tent: 2x2x3
    light: HLG 65w 4000k LED
    pot size: 2 gallon
    medium: coco loco
    nutrients: dyna-gro grow/bloom

    Thats a good choice for a first grow. Looks healthy. What ever your doing agrees with it.

      If the plant is covering the entire footprint of the light I think you can expect one or two ounces. Being only 65 wats of light means over two ounces its improbable. Everything looks great. I think you're looking at another 5 weeks maybe more. Mostly because with a low powered light it takes a bit more time for the plant to finish. Keep feeding regularly and practice your patience. Everything looks great

        Amazing job so far. You sure it's only 65w?

        With a 100w light I'd say you could go close to 12oz but with a 65w probably under half that.

        Lights: 2 x SF-7000, 2 x 30w 660&730nm supp. red boosters for flower stretch over sativa x in flower room.
        Medium: Coco/perlite, mix of 13gal & 7.2gal pots, no drains
        Current Grow: ​​​4 x Autos Franklin's AK47 x Red CBD (harrvested dry 22oz), 1 x Photos Franklin's Orange Zkittles x Sour Diesel, 1 Franklin's White Widow x Sour Diesel, All feminised. 1 x sativa x, regular, Clones 30th March 5 x Orange Zkittles x Sour Diesel fem in veg cupboards & 3x WW x SD & 2 OZ x SD in Aeroponics bucket.

          Thanks - I’m getting a little anxious because the plants look good and I don’t want to make any critical errors so far into the game. The humidity here is unreal right now and my dehumidifier in cranking all day. Hopefully winter will be better.

          I’m not sure about what the light exactly draws. Just going by what this says

            That HLG lamp is a good one. It will grow good weed in that size tent. I used that lamp in a 2x2.5x6 tent and got about 2-3 oz per plant. Even though I don't use the 100 anymore, I've stuck with HLG and have had nothing but a good experience with their lights. Good lookin' plants. Forget the grow guides and be patient, watch the trichomes. Look at them with a jewelers loop for the best time to harvest. When you think it's time to harvest, wait another day.

              I just noticed that the tips of some leaves are yellowing! I checked gwe diagnosis pages and think it is light burn? I looked at the lower leaves and no burn. I lowered the plant about 3 inches and reduced the power a “hair” (the light has an adjuster but it is barely quantitative).

              Anything else I should consider?

              Ooooooo Blue dream!!!! I just popped a blue dream auto from Fast Buds today! Fantastic choice of culture for a first time grow. She's usually an easy grow with nice fat buds at harvest. From your pictures, she's looking happy and healthy! Fantastic job! 👍 keep it up and you'll have a really nice harvest.
              Peace. Love. Mushrooms and Weed.
