Final dry weight was just shy of 2oz’s and another 1/2 oz of sweetleaf and popcorn bud. Top colas were dense lower buds were a bit airy. Dried for 4 days and I’m currently one week into curing.

Plant was slow to ripen up like every other stage of this plants growth. I had to extend the predetermined veg, flower and flush stage but the results look worth it. Plenty of trimming and topping stressed the plant a lot as well. A few pics here prior to harvest still in flush, harvest later today.

MrGreen99 Wow just waiting on the harvest. Was that from one seed?

Azuri Yup, feminized, topped 3 times.

SMEHTHESMEH Those buds look killer!!

Day 119: 2 Days Into Flush

4 years ago

SMEHTHESMEH So being as your grow is almost done, how do you find the results? Worth the $$? I’m sure whatever you have will be potent due to the nicely controlled environment.

Azuri It has it pros and cons for sure. I think he price point is bit high for the unit but all in all it is pretty much plant and forget with some light trimming and topping. I’ll post up dry weight and bud pics when done. 👍

JonnyBlaze I think you are completely right..I think the grobo is worth 1500 not 2400 lol

Day 111: Around 3 weeks until harvest. Buds starting to fatten up, hope to see more progress prior to flush.

Ford20 Nice healthy looking plant. How many watts is the led light? It doesn’t really look like it has enough power to thicken up those buds tho, they will shrink lots when dried and you’ll lose about 75% once dried and cured. I would be interested in seeing the final buds and total dried weight. Thanks for sharing very cool unit and good luck.

Azuri Great question, light is 300w what you see is a “photo” mode the pics are 1/2 the total output wattage warm yellow hue light type spectrum for pics. I’ll post up wet and dry weight and some pics.

Day 106: Buds coming along

MrGreen99 Can’t wait to see the final results. I was thinking about getting grobo or cloudponics . Your buds look amazing 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

Azuri Cloudponics has more flexibility atm with your grows but takes up a larger footprint. I’ll post another update later tonight. About 3+ weeks until harvest, hope to see some bud fattening up soon.

MrGreen99 Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been waiting to see reviews on both. Hopefully buds gets bigger but looking good. I’m post of some of my stuff soon I’m still seeding I’m very new too this but I’m very interested. Trying to cut out the middle man out and get my own buds 🤞🏽

Rainstorm3 Any signs of bud sites yet?

Azuri Yup, in tight where the leaves meet the stocks. First two to three weeks plant still in stretch phase, week 3 is when the magic starts. 🌿

Rainstorm3 Awesome! I only ask because of my weird timeline, mine already has signs and it just entered flowering stage yesterday.

SMEHTHESMEH Awesome post, I myself wanted to buy the groboone, instead bought a 480 watt mars reflector and made a custom 3x3x8’ room. How do you like your grobo one? I’m curious to see how big your bud development will be inside that box. It’s looking great! Are you just entering flower stage?

Azuri I’m interested to see the results too. Changed over to 12/12 a week ago. I’ll post the results here of the harvest. Good luck with your grow!

SMEHTHESMEH Excellent! I that that’s a cool af system. Go to you as well, look forward to seeing those buds!

Bigbzkidd

Bigbzkidd Does it come with that scrog net ?

Azuri Nope, made it myself but planted the seed (pun intended) to the manufacture to add something into their design.

Bigbzkidd

Bigbzkidd Gotcha it looks pretty sturdy was thinking about using a scrog net but I’m gonna start flushing this week. But there’s always next grow

Day 45 Did some trimming again and some supercroping. First two pics are before and other two are the after. I also figured out why my plant hasn’t grown in height. I cut the two most bottom branches off, the coco pod sank one node height down after that under the weight of the plant.

Day: 44

Day 44: You wouldn’t know I gave her a haircut two days ago and topped 3 days ago. Just did a drain and fill so I’ll let her grow in veg to recover and clip again tomorrow. Flowering starts in a week.

Day 43: Trimmed a few more leaves after her haircut on day 42.

Rainstorm3 Is it fruit flies? Persistent? And plant looks great!

Azuri I think it is. Seen about 4 during the entire grow. If you look at the yellow sticky on the left it caught one in 3 days so don’t think it’s anything to worry about.

Day: 42

Day 42: One week until flower. Cut off the two lowest chutes wont be cloning, trying a new strain next time around from seed again. Pruned a few older leaves.

4 years ago

Azuri Had to add almost two litres of water today. Should have been my drain and fill day but recipe got altered so prompt should soon I think 🤷‍♂️

Rainstorm3 That’s a lot of water. Are you finding you’re having to top up often?

Azuri This is the first week I’ve had to top. I wouldn’t have topped a 2nd time this week since my drain and fill is due in 2 hours. It may be as late as 4 days now not sure due to 11 days adds to me recipe.

Day 38. I trimmed one old fan leaf off and I won’t be giving this girl a substantial haircut anytime soon. Early topping allowed it to bush out nicely.

Bagseedwarrior I’ve been following since start and it’s looking great. So bushy. Can’t wait to see what happens.

Azuri Yeah I’m just as curious as you. First grow for a longtime for me and in automated LED box to boot!

Azuri Same strain, it will be drinking like crazy soon! I’m happy it hasn’t grown really high yet. When the flowering stretch comes some sativas will be tricky to keep in the confines of the grobo.

Buddingbudda Looking really good! Never seen one of these units before but what a smart idea. Was just curious as a lot of people say dont top an Auto but yours seems to be doing great! Will follow your results, keep it up!

Azuri Oh I should clarify it’s an automated growbox. All nutrients, PH balancing, recipes are controlled by an app automatically. The seed itself is feminized not an auto-flower. Sorry for the confusion! As far as this product goes it’s the first of its kind full automated app based growing. Uncharted waters for me too.

Buddingbudda Ah sorry i read that wrong thought it said auto for the seed, as usual i think ive read something properly but havent haha. Sounds like a smart piece of kit that would do wonders for my ocd everything nice and neat all in order being very efficient 😂 . Does it have its own ventilation also then?

Rainstorm3 Looking good!

Azuri Sure is, I’m pretty happy this strain is going to be short and bushy and most likely won’t grow out of the height restriction of the Grobo.

Day: 26

Day 26: no obvious signs of stress after topping one day ago.

Rainstorm3 Looking so good! I think I’m tipping toward starting over. Yours is thrice the plant mine is!

Azuri Understood. Yeah once they get established they really take off. I expect some slow down after topping for a few days.

Day: 25

Day 25: Topped plant at 4th node today. Plant looked well enough along, hopefully not to early.

Bagseedwarrior Looks incredible. Tight nodes, big lush leaves.

Bagseedwarrior Any nutrients yet?

Azuri Yeah, each week after the drain and fill it dispenses nutes and PH balance. The system is automated so I can’t be sure of what nutes and quantities.

Day: 22

Day 22: Trimmed the first and 2nd leaves to allow the fan to blow under the pant and ensure coco pod is dry. I’m expecting more vertical height this week so I’ll capture that

Rainstorm3 Looking good!!!

Azuri Thanks!

Azuri Thanks for following. I’m sure we’ll have a few curious peeps over this first to market automated units.

Rainstorm3 Good to know my plant isn’t too far off yours. I was worried after the issues I was having, hopefully it stays looking like yours until the new unit gets here!

Weed_Fairy I definitely want to invest into this system on my next grow.

Azuri Their not cheap, but it’s good quality and great for new growers. Compact, and full spectrum LED got me intrigued. Only thing I’ve had to do so far is drain and fill. A great machine for people who don’t know or don’t want to fuss. Only company out of the three that are actually sending the product out 👍
