Day: 134

This girl keeps getting bigger and bigger. Starting to see more amber trichomes, and she’s starting to have a lot of yellow leaves tword the bottom which is a good sign. Honestly, I could cut a couple of these sites and let a couple more mature and grow, but I think I’m just gonna chop her and call it my first grow, so I can get going with the second one. I’m gonna do a lot of things different this next time around.

HayitsBillyMays Also, I’m very happy with how she’s turned out. She is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Pictures look good but I promise you they don’t do her justice. The buds are also starting to get pretty dense which is also wonderful.

HayitsBillyMays Ps. I cut a couple small pop corn nugs from the bottom and gave them a test. She’s an absolute heater.

Zombie1 Looks great!!!! Good job!!!

Supakilla420 Are your lights 12/12?

HayitsBillyMays Idk how much longer, but going my trichomes, this plant is not gonna be done for another 3-4 weeks I’d say, and no my lights are on 18/6

This plant is slowly slowly slowly going, but I’m alll here for it. I don’t think the buds will get to much bigger but then again they might suprise me. This has been a very interesting experience. Originally it was supposed to be 60-70 days and here I am almost 120 days into this thing and she’s still going.

103, were still trucking. Trichomes are coming in and I believe the buds are starting to connect together a little bit but she still has some more time. Interested to see how much she yields after she’s done.

Got some nute burn, but she still seems to be doing okay. Just gonna let her do her thing.

Supakilla420 I literally can’t wait to see how this monster turns out? Are you still doing 12/13 or back to 24/0?

HayitsBillyMays I’m on 18-6 now, I’ll post updated pics tomorrow around 2-3 pm EST perhaps.

I think she’s finally starting to bud? Lol this plant is going to take forever and I’m gonna ride it out to see how she ends up. But I’ll be feeding her in a couple of days again.

Day: 63

Today is the start of week 9... She’s still slowly stretching, still has pistils popping up, and I still don’t know if she’s gonna produce anything at this point. Im gonna give her another two weeks or so and if nothing has changed then I guess I may have to cut her down and try again :( I’ve switched lights over to 12-12 now for about a week and I can’t really tell if it’s making a difference. Some of the calyxs are getting bigger but the pistils have fallen out of them, and they’re just kinda hanging out. So if anyone has any idea on what I should do, then please feel free to let me know! I’m gonna be giving her flower nutes again in the next couple of days. Also she’s still drinking about a half gal of water every day to day and a half.

pcarver Try some Gelato auto from Greybeard. Lets try a grow off with same seed.

Day: 60

Day 60, plants still growing new leaves but not stretching as much. At this point idk when this thing is gonna actually produce some buds. But she’s healthy and happy. About to give her some water.

57, more growth but not buds. Switched to 12-12 about 3 days ago now and nothing really changed. It’s like she’s stuck in ore flower or something. So whatever it is, I do know these are some shit genetics. Some pistils are turning amber/orange and falling out, idk what that’s about, but we’re gonna finisher out however long that takes. Hopefully she yields something lol. Also removed some lower bud sites bc we want all that energy to be focused twords to top.

Day: 54

Day 54. I’m back from being out of town and oh my god she hasn’t stopped growing. I’m going to have to defoliate again bc this is beginning to be to much haha. Still not budding. I’m gonna give it another couple days then I’m going to switch my lights to 12-12.

Supakilla420 Think they may have been photo plant seeds?

HayitsBillyMays I’m not sure tbh. But I’m gonna switch lights over

Day: 51

Day 51. Still no buds lol, but she’s growing and growing. I’m running out of room to train her so I’m just gonna have to let her be. No more training other than minor things from here on out. With the three center bud sites, I tried to super crop them, but the next day they literally are standing straight back up. I’m also going out of town so I’ll update when I’m back and let’s hope and pray for some budding when I get home haha.

Ladies and Gentlemen.. the bounce back. She took very well to the heavy defoliation and it didn’t seem to stunt her out at all. She already has a lot of new growth and a lot of leaves coming back in. It’s week 7 and still no budding. She’s showing pistils which is good but nothing else. The seedbank says plant will go for about 55-60 days and I hope that’s not the case bc I’m nowhere near being done. Anyone have any info on why my plant hasn’t made any buds yet? Or should I just be more patient and let it run it’s course?

KochiKush Hey mate! Often the recommended times are a little short so don’t stress. You can grow it for aslong as you like until you’re ready to chop. Be patient and she’ll be ready in no time

Day: 47

Had to do some major defoliation. The leaves were growing so fast and covering up all the bud sites. She’s still growing extremely fast tho. Now you can see how I’ve trained my plant. Also, I’m experiencing a little nute burn. Some of the leaves are turning up a lil bit

3 years ago

pcarver Have you done such a extreme trim before? Seems extreme? On my first grow gsc @ 23days. Looking for advise. Thanks

HayitsBillyMays Don’t recommend for you at your stage and no this is the heaviest I’ve defoliated. I was running out of space and it was also blocking air flow badly.

UrbanOrganics I need to get like you and do the same but I be scared I’m going to hurt them or they want get fatter. I’m going to update mines today

Still no buds, but she’s still growing like crazy. I didn’t anticipate this plant vegging and growing like it has. Not bad but I thought it would’ve been much smaller haha, but she’s coming along very very nice, I’m gonna give some heavy flower nutes on day 51, or maybe a day or two before hand. There’s a crazy amount of budsites on this plant and with each day that passes one sprouts up and grows about an inch to an inch and a half. It’s wild

OddPothead Beautiful look to her mate, she’s definitely loving that training

HayitsBillyMays Thank you man, I appreciate it!

Day: 44

Light defoliation to expose more budsites, but she’s an absolute tank. Coming in very very strong. Gave some water as well.. starting to notice the plant is drinking more and more water (as expected) but more frequently then I imagined at this point. I’m on the verge of having to water every day. But all and all, very happy with the progress.

Cut quite a few leaves blocking bud sites today, but she’s still growing like crazy. Hopefully within the next week or so she’ll start producing some buds.

Canopy is looking very very nice. Everything is within a quarter of an inch in height, so pretty even if you ask me. I’m ready for this girl to really start packing on some weight.

Day: 38

Day 38, trying to keep the canopy all one height so I’ve been tying down more and more bud sites. So far so good. Every other day, I’ve been taking all the fan leaves and bending them downwards and out of the way of the bottom budsites coming in.

Day: 36

Start of week 6. She’s growing very fast! Did some more LST to even out the canopy. Everythings going gooooood, starting to water every 2-3 days now.

LoveBud The way you trained this plant is amazing

HayitsBillyMays Thank you, it’s still a learning process but it’s turning out pretty nice.

Switched to flower nutes. Steadily coming.

Things are going well it seems. Just watering every 3 days or so. I have to go out of town for a couple days so I’ll update when I get back.

Started some more LST, took off two fan leaves because they were blocking bud sites and they had some deformities. Also gave her a watering of maybe 1/2 gal, I’m trying to learn the best amount to give her.

Slowly coming along. I’ve realized I overwatered by a lot, and I’m trying to let the soil dry out, but she looks much happier today.

Day: 19

Everything looks alright, I just feel like she’s growing to slow? Either way she looks healthy and I’m happy.

Wiserbuds You have deficiencies. I’m not familiar with autos but that is not a happy plant. The leaves should be standing at attention. Not drooping.

HayitsBillyMays I don’t think I have any sort of nutrient deficiency, but I believe my problem was I over watered by over double what I usually water. So I haven’t watered now in about 4 days and the top soil is drying, but it’s still pretty damp. The leaves are starting to curl back up, but I hope I haven’t done anything to damage the roots system to much.

Day: 17

A lot of good growth coming in. I would love to hear any sort of tips or feedback to help.

Day: 16

Slowly coming along.

Day: 15

Started LST pretty early, but I want to train my plant for as long as possible because auto flowers don’t usually veg for a long period. so I’m going to have to maximize my number of bud sites, while controlling plant height at the same time.

3 years ago

TravelToker What are you using for LST? I like those.

HayitsBillyMays It’s literally just like some twist ties. They work but they cut your plant easy, that’s why I switched to 3.5mm foam ties

TravelToker I use pipe cleaners, you will see them in my future pictures.

Wannagethigh Mines still struggling to drop its seed, planted it directly into a big pot, any tips during the seedling stage would be great, thanks! 🙏🏻🙏🏻☺️

HayitsBillyMays Planting in a big pot can sometimes cause it to delay a bit. Just be patient!
