Very first grow

Summer

My very first grow is now officially underway! Planted these seeds 3 days ago directly into Jiffy peat pots. I was and still am a bit concerned I planted too shallow. All but 2 are popping through. I see seeds still attached so I suppose the next 48 hours will be interesting.

Buffet style - NY Deisel A, Purple Haze A, Northern Lights A, White Widow PF, Cream and Cheese 1:1 PF

Here’s my White Widow on day 40 of flower. Is she starting to foxtail? Oh I hope not. She is full of buds and they all look like this. (Outdoor grow in Living Soil)

a year ago

Peng I’ve grown a white widow auto before and had foxtailing, when I looked it up apparently it’s pretty common on a white widow

Peng I don’t think there’s anything inherently bad about it

Peng If you can rule out the usual environmental factors like too much light or heat it’s probably genetic and I wouldn’t worry about it.

Seedsman hybrid Cream and Cheese Photo has grown beyond my expectations! (First grow ever) I have 2 of these and 2 White Widow Photos. Started at same time, same conditions, (outdoor organic grow) and the cream and cheese looks beautiful! I cannot wait to try these gorgeous buds - this hybrid is a mix of thc and CBD. According to Seedman should be about 50/50 and at a high concentration. ☀️ would love to here if anyone else has grown this strain?!

Any comments are appreciated! First time grower, outdoor living soil, autos, I believe I’m nearing harvest and just not sure. Trichomes are cloudy?? (Do u think) still have some healthy white pistols though. Am I there? Or almost. I’ve read so much online I’m doubting everything now. Purple Haze here.

DracoBEBO The first picture I def see some cloudy, but the light can play tricks on you. I would recommend a scope/loupe that lets you see closer. I’d also look for some ambers. Don’t see em. I Would think you need to wait.

This is my Purple Haze Auto that fox tailed quite a bit. Discovered mold on the top bud- gave her a good trim. She is an outdoor grow in living soil. We’ve had some very hot and humid days. Lessons to learn nearly every day!

hem-p

hem-p Great job growing 💯 but examine the bud in the lower left corner for mold, that white fuzzy area looks like it.

mimisflower

mimisflower You are right! This is the piece I cut out. Wanted to share to show what it looks like 👍🏼 Bringing my girls in every night now bc the heat and humidity are so bad.

Day: 75

So I found some moldy rot this morning on a couple of my autos :(. Had to cut these out. The challenges of growing outdoors when the weather is wacky!

a year ago

DracoBEBO Do you cover the plants when it rains? I will be doing my first outdoors soon.

mimisflower

mimisflower So i usually pulled them under my awning after they got a good drink of rain… until last week! Got lazy and left them out. It was a soaking wet day and damp couple evenings. I learned my lesson. Won’t do that again. These little autos are easy enough to carry inside or under the awning! I haven’t kept track of inches of rainfall either. I am doing that from now on!

DracoBEBO Ok nice. Any advice and experience is appreciated. I am going to transition 4 outside at week 4. But I will have a greenhouse for them, to move them into on rainy or windy days. Used to do indoor hydro years back. Now doing soil, and trying some in, and some outdoors. Going to see how the work out. Temps for the part of the year they are going outside in should be ideal.

When your outdoor autos become indoor autos at night because the humidity is just too high outside (86%). So imagine what my family room is smelling like about now! It’s worth it - I can’t risk moldy buds. NY Diesel - Purple Haze - Northern Lights.

I have 2 out of 5 plants whose buds just look way different. This is one of them. Purple haze auto. I’m guessing something went wrong? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated

a year ago

24/0veg It might just be different phenotypes. Are the other plants smaller or something ?

Plantnation

Plantnation More pictures would be helpful. If grown from a seed it’s going to look different for sure.

mimisflower

mimisflower Size is similar but buds look different compared to her sis. I just posted how beautiful her sis looks. This is my first grow and feel a bit inept in knowing what the buds look as they progress. Especially when 2 of the strains look different. I’ll see if I can add more detailed pics. Here the calyxes are much larger with little to no white pistols.

LordBraso

LordBraso Pay attention to the foxtailing…

mimisflower

mimisflower Yes! I believe I have a couple other plants that are foxtailing way more than this. These are outdoor grows and the heat & humidity a few weeks ago was terrible - much better now. I’ve tried to learn about it but all examples I see are extremes - do you know how foxtailing affects the buds? Any info is greatly appreciated! Thank you.

LordBraso

LordBraso The only major thing that does is the change aspect of the bud, it’s not a big issue it’s just the form of the nugs that are different, smell and other stuff remain the same…

Another image of my Purple Haze Auto. Her flowers look different from her sisters. Am I liking too hard or is there something not right about these flowers. Not as many white pistols as her sis either and nor am I seeing the e purple like I can on her sister. Any help would be very much appreciated!

mimisflower

mimisflower Because it’s my first grow I really do not know what to expect as the flowers grow. Such a learning process! I wish I could find a good and thorough source that would provide images of the many stages of a grow. But I suppose different strains flowers may look different as they fully develop??

NY Diesel auto. She’s developing a very nice amount of flowers but I’m a little concerned that the new growth is too yellow - it is more yellow than her sis. I know yellow may indicate low nitrogen but also thought we move away from nitrogen supplements when in flower. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

a year ago

Mystrain420-@eaegifts

Mystrain420-@eaegifts Low nitrogen starts at the bottom with the yellowing. Check the deficiency/toxicity chart online, I saw someone mention recently too much P too soon does this. I noticed my girls are usually like this tho when they wake up but go darker Throughout the day 🤷🏾

mimisflower

mimisflower Thank you! I’m using living soil with a clover cover crop so I do t really supplement per se. I will say though she is larger than her sis and with more leaves. Seems like she is producing more leaves and flowers. I’ll check out the deficiency chart and update.

Mystrain420-@eaegifts

Mystrain420-@eaegifts I been reading on it and I’m thinking iron deficiency. I increased my calmag and plan to make a aact focused on micronutrients. Hope this helps and please lmk if you find a different cause

So after looking at my outdoor girls this morning I saw something new. Ugh. I did catch a teeny inchworm and was able to identify it but I also found these leaf markings Wondering if anyone knows what could have caused this. I plan on using need neem oil spray for the inchworms. Wondering if they caused this or something else????

Swanson4:21pm

Swanson4:21pm Thrips and leaf tunneler possibly

locker105

locker105 The white dots look like spider mites to me but I am by no means 100% on that. Check the bottom part of the leaves and if there are tiny black dots on them then those are definitely spider mite eggs and u gotta kill that infestation.

mimisflower

mimisflower Thank you so much for responding! After much closer investigation I found all the things we don’t want to find. After major trimming off infested leaves I will be neem oil spraying at dusk. I am going to post pics of my leaves to share with others

mimisflower It has some small white pistols at the very top node. So Hermed? I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised this plant was stunted from the beginning and way behind the others.

Just like that I found an infestation of some tunneler (tiny light green bug) and some sort of inch worm. I just gave them an ugly trim. I’ll neem oil tonight and hope for the best. Just wondering how many of you outdoor growers routinely neem oil regardless if u see any pests? I am wishing I would have 😩

nicedude69 Just came across this post, I’m a first time outdoor grower as well. Ive found some little bugs on the plant but not consistently or too many. But I have a white spot on one or two of the lower leaves. Understand your frusturation

mimisflower

mimisflower I’m going to make neem oil spray a routine - I wish I would have before I found these. I love e idea of growing outside and without chemicals - and this first grow will be a huge learning process. Glad to be in good company here!

Outdoor growers what to do when the forecast is cloudy and chance of thunderstorms every f’n day for the next 7 days? Just carried all my girls up 2 flights of stairs so they can sit on my upstairs balcony hoping there is more “light” (cloudy daylight) and to quickly move inside for stormy weather.

Lemon auto - so I started these girls directly in their forever home - 3 gallon cloth pot from vivosun using living soil. First time using this brand of cloth pot btw. I’m concerned about the green algae/whatever it is on the bottom. It’s happening to all three. I did not have this happen on my black cloth pots. Any insight would be appreciated. Do I need to transplant them out of these?? I did move them today to a place where air can circulate on the bottom.

Prodigy

Prodigy I've never seen that but my cloth pots are black so I probably wouldn't. I'm assuming it's a nutes or mineral build up next time you water do a 10% run off if you think it's hurting your grow. If it is Algae you can clean it on the outside of the pot, there's some articles on Google about it.

Started these lemon autos outside directly in soil. They look quite satisfied and so am I! I started my first seedlings grow inside under lights in peer pots - did not like how they stretched. These are looking so much better!

moneymike1983 Don’t worry about shallow. The roots will dig down. Now it’s all about your lighting and not over watering til you hit early vegetation stages.

mimisflower Thank you for encouraging words! Omg I’m excited and crazy nervous at the same time. Planted 10 thinking 5 maybe 6 would germinate. Now I see all 10 at last have sprouted. This will be quite the journey! 🌱
