Planned downtime on Friday, July 20, 2018

Hello Forum Members,

We love all the awesome pictures that you have been uploading, but we started running out of space to hold them all. In order to increase our storage space, this Friday the growing community will be down all day for planned upgrades and backups. We should be up and running again for the weekend!

Happy growing,
Nebula & Sirius

    Warning to all new growers!!!

    This is just a post that I hope some new growers will read and use the information given, a small point of information that I feel, overlooked, could be as annoying to other new growers as it is to me, right now!!!
    ​​​​​​Dear new growers, please take the time to research the strains you are growing, and take into account the height your plants will grow to, don't choose by name, like me, or you could end up in trouble, like me.........the heights of strains differ wildly as you can see below.
    The small plant is white widow auto and the big one is Onyx auto, I resorted to supercropping the main stem of the Onyx but she stood back up stronger than before?!! I supercropped again out of desperation but it's not good enough as you can see, I know this stuff is exiting people but take a minute to read the specs and you won't end up like me
    Very different heights!!!! Super strong supercropped knuckle. Another supercropping attempt but she is well past the light now.....doh!!!
    The more I know, the better I grow.

    Good advise and also shows how two lights in a given space is better than one big one!
    It's all bullshit - until you smoke it!

      I replaced the little hanging clips on my lights with cable ties, gave me one more inch of height.
      Curse those lanky sativas.

    Next time tie down the suppercropped branch so it heals in an angle instead of getting straight again

      I did have it taped up coz I split the stem........didn't know it would stand back up cause it looked so weak and floppy.......lesson learned thanks dude

      To fill the pots radius I let the branches grow upwards the distance to the edges and an inch more so when I twist and fold I secure them in place with an open paper clip holding the branch tied to the edge of the pot. After a week or so after it healed and its hard again I Leto go. It will rise a little overtime but the shape of the branches end up like a "Y" instead it like a "T" giving you space around the pot to water and for air to come in. Once the plant gets heavy all the branches will stay on place. Good luck

    Thanks Vapo69, this is great advice actually. Wasn't something I had encountered while researching but started noticing plant heights when I was ordering seeds and then realized there was quite a difference!!!! Good example you have there! Aside from the height problem hope the rest goes well for you!!!!!

    WOW, what a difference! Next time LST at the very least my man. I have to say I've never seen an auto get that tall before. What's your plan for the Onyx now?

      Yeah I saw that @WeedPharma. Looking good! I grew Jock Horror autos last year. It got about 2-2.5 feet tall. Great smoke!

      I agree, that's some pretty amazing growth for an auto.

      Vapo69 Something similar happened to me once. It's something you might never think about until it happens to you, so this is a really great public service announcement!

      I was curious, would it be okay with you we published these pictures to the auto-flowering page on GWE? I feel like a picture is worth a thousand words, and these pics could be really helpful to first-time growers!

      Despite the size difference, both your plants look great!
