Day: 111

First grow in the books, everything in jars now. I’m no pro but the buds weren’t as dense as the stuff I buy. Probably something I did or didn’t do. But wow this Deelite is powerful! 👊 Not fully cured yet and wow it hits me right in the face when I crack open the jar. Maybe it’s because of the crap they have here in NJ dispensaries, I don’t know.

Chop day! This girl’s run is over, it’s a bitter sweet day. Can’t wait to smoke some. Rigging up a drying area in a cabinet I have here. Need a bar that goes across inside, thinking maybe one of those shower curtain bars. See if I can get the humidifier in there too.

Trichomes still too clear you think?

Day: 100

She’s still hanging in there, starting to think she is too attached and doesn’t want to leave me 😂🤣 saw one 1 amber trichome, mostly all clear. Guess I can just wait and see when she’s ready, no rush.

Looking more and more like an alien 👽 every day lol

Day: 97

Trichomes still crystal clear, she’s cruising along. All clean water now, no nutes. Looking forward to my 1st harvest 😀 hopefully not much longer. She seems to be getting a little thicker with white pistils being replaced with Calyx. Or does the Calyx get bigger and the pistil gets smaller?

Took a bit of a gamble but the lttle dehumidifier seems to be doing the job, keeping it right around 50 RH.

xVADERxTOKERx Good call!

gpurps

gpurps Thank you Xvader 😀 cheaply made but does the trick!

Day: 93

She’s getting really boring lol, not much activity but all the water I’m giving her has to be going to the buds. Seem to be getting chunkier but hard to tell.

Feeling that she’s got a little more growing to do, we will see, first time. Drinking 1 full gallon of 6.5-6.7 PH water every 2 days. Probably messed around with PH down a little too much but I got it.

4 months ago

ig:@eaegifts

ig:@eaegifts Definitely has more time left, hairs haven’t turned color or begin to recede. Looks good 👍🏾👍🏾

gpurps

gpurps Thanks ig, ok so the hairs (pistols I believe) actually recede back in, cool. Thought maybe the other part (stigma) grows out It’s hard to find videos or time lapse pictures with closeups of what that look like. How much longer would you say?

ig:@eaegifts

ig:@eaegifts Yea you’re correct their called pistils, check out mr Canuck on YouTube. Most ppl go by the trichomes alone but the pistils are a good sign also of current state. Idk how accurate I can be but I definitely see a few weeks left, you can look back at your notes of when she began flowering and kinda figure out how far she is

Day: 85

She seems to keep fattening up 👍 struggling a little to keep the temps down. Turned lights down to 75% and tweaked my home made AC a little. Finally broke down and got a mini dehumidifier since that’s been running on the high side too.

Don’t laugh at my budget AC 😂🤣

youcanthavethat1

youcanthavethat1 Yes sir, I built me one works a lil differently tho

gpurps

gpurps As long as it works 👍 so far so good, I ordered a foam insert for it too, the temps were really starting to rise. Needs a little more refining for sure. First time growing here when it’s spring/summer.

youcanthavethat1

youcanthavethat1 Mine pumps water over over pads and the fan blows upward out of the bucket, pulling air thru the wet pads

Hoping she packs some weight onto her buds, looking like there is room to grow there. This strain usually harvests in 2 weeks so we’ll see.

Advice please, looks to be lacking some nutrient. Anyone know what? Thank you.

4 months ago

mofolord

mofolord Looks like nutriënt burn, the tips of the plant is also curling and turning brown.

mofolord

mofolord Or it could be potassium deficiency.. you need to check your EC/Ph could be issue there aswell

gpurps

gpurps Thank you Mofo, thinking you’re right about the potassium deficiency now that I’m reading up on it more. I was thinking maybe it was heat stress since she stretched up a little close to the light too.

Day: 75

Did some light defoliating of some big fan leaves. Hopefully didn’t overdo it. Watered her with 80 oz of 6.5 ph water, no nutes. Upper leaves are canoeing (if that’s a term) and getting a little more brown. I raised the light up so it is 6” above the highest bud, not exactly sure how high it should be. Maybe next step is to invest in that tool that measures the light (will research) Any constructive criticism is welcome, thanks!

Fun to watch the transformation for the 1st time 😀

gpurps

gpurps Slightly brown tips now that I zoom in, should I be worried?

gpurps

gpurps Want to see her go the distance, not really lucky with the other seeds. This is the only one to survive and start to thrive somewhat.

@eaegifts

@eaegifts That’s fine just if it gets worse flush her out and dial your nutrients down a bit. I’ve been growing for years and still get burn here and there, you’re doing great 👍🏾👍🏾

Think she looks happy. Did 48 oz of water with 3/4 nutes, think she can handle it. Fingers crossed. Same height so hoping for it to go to making some denser buds.

5 months ago

gpurps

gpurps Can someone recommend a good tent sized dehumidifier that they’re happy with? I see a lot that say they will keep it “around 40-50% RH” but that doesn’t sound very accurate to me. I’d like to just set it to a % and have it maintain it, like most of us would I think. Ideally it would have a drain hose too cuz knowing myself I’ll forget to check it to see if it’s full. Thanks in advance 😀

Day: 59

Getting very thirsty and is stretching I think? Still 24” tall which looks good. More of the growth is in the buds 😀 really cool to watch for the first time

5 months ago

gpurps

gpurps Introduced 1/4 nutes this time, learned from that mistake!

Day: 56

Looks like she’s doing nicely after the flush. Watered for the first time since then, 32oz of clean 6.5 ph water, no nutes.

Day: 53

Looks like she perked up after the flush/doooshing…hopefully will continue growing now

Flushed her out with clean ph balanced water. Thought she just needed water but someone mentioned nitrogen toxicity. Made sense after researching, we’ll see how she reacts.

5 months ago

gpurps

gpurps Looks like the Fox Farm soil was hot enough, did not need any additional nutes.

Day: 51

Put some of these training clips on the 2 main ones coming up so could get more light further down.

5 months ago

HammertimeAZ

HammertimeAZ What does the clips to?

gpurps

gpurps They train the plant to go in the direction you want it to.

donotgrowlikeme

donotgrowlikeme Your plant is literally struggling to live because of nitrogen toxicity

Trying this that came with the newbie starter kit 😜 anyone have experience with it? Good or bad opinions using this are welcome. Thanks.

5 months ago

HammertimeAZ

HammertimeAZ #’s are really high for well fortified soil. I would be really leery using it at full recommended strength. If You’re gonna try using it, i recommend diluting it only to a quarter of the recommended strength. I invest in great soil so I don’t really Dick around with all of the different pimped fertilizers.

stick e fingerz

stick e fingerz That’s standard wow yeah agree with hammer those are some high ass #s be careful 👊🤙🙌

gpurps

gpurps Great, thanks for the advice. Yes don’t want to fry it, can always add a little more in another feeding.

Day: 49

Felt the need to split this apart so the light could get down to these other 4 that were hiding underneath.

berrygoodstf

berrygoodstf Hi, this is my first grow too. What the primary difference between auto and non auto plants??

gpurps

gpurps Autos start flowing on their own, you don’t have to change the lighting schedule.

gpurps

gpurps Hoping more people will chime in with their experience.

Advice please, I know these are autos but do I need to change the lighting schedule to get them to flower/bloom more? Currently at 18/6

5 months ago

gpurps

gpurps Thanks Peng, so just leave her be you think? Been giving her the standard nutes that came with Homegrown seeds

Peng You don’t need to change the lighting schedule for an autoflower.

Day: 38

Looking like some pre-flower? Wondering how long to leave her like this. Lights still 18/6

gpurps Bumped lights up to 75% 4 days ago and she seems to be liking it.

gpurps

gpurps Gotcha, so it’s kinda on cruise control. Maybe I’ll just sit back and let her do her thing. Thanks, looking forward to see it get all purty

Been topping the lower ones, not sure if I should top this one at this stage.

Coming up on 6 weeks, seed company said harvest in 7-8, maybe I read it wrong.

5 months ago

Luvs2Grow Most seed companies harvest times are in absolute perfect conditions so don’t fret if this girl goes quite a bit longer. I’ve had some that were supposedly 8-9 weeks and ended up being 11-13 weeks.

gpurps

gpurps I see, makes sense. So it’s more of a guide and not a rule I guess you could say. Thinking I will just sit back and enjoy the show and not fuss with her too much.

Luvs2Grow Exactly! I’ve had a few that turned out 7-8 weeks like they claim but not very often. Enjoy the show is the best thing you can do.

jumpman21 You going to LST?

gpurps

gpurps I wasn’t planning on it since my first grow, don’t want to chance messing it up.

SpacemanGrows

SpacemanGrows Download an app called Photone. Works best with iPhones, but still effective on android. The free version is ok, but for 5 or 10 bucks you get a reasonably accurate PAR meter. Just need a square of printer paper to place over your camera as a light diffuser. Any answers you receive to this question will be a complete blind guess otherwise.

Day: 31

10” tall, looking healthy, any advice if I should trim bottom leaves or top it?

6 months ago

PeeWeeDWC Probably time to top it then lst Just my opinion

gpurps

gpurps Thank you for the reply @PeeWeeDWC. Going to research some more on how to LST and experiment with it. Seems to be mostly making the plants grow out instead of up.

PeeWeeDWC You have any luck with LST?

Doesn’t look good for this one, trimmed off the yellow and brown leaves, no new growth but not dead.

6 months ago

SpacemanGrows

SpacemanGrows It’s dead. Dead, dead. I promise, PROMISE, you don’t want to finish this plant. The hardest thing for a new grower to do is kill a plant. Think Kevorkian like, you’re really doing it a favor by putting this plant out of its misery.

boab420

boab420 31 days and that’s it bin that shit & start again bro it’s done defo dead it has no root base trust me

gpurps

gpurps Thank you @SpacemanGrows and @boab420, yeah I kinda thought so, will channel my inner Dr. K. And put it out if it’s misery. Live and learn, still not really sure what did her in, guess you roll the dice when growing.

Day: 17

Not looking so good, can someone recommend why?

6 months ago

NopeQQ

NopeQQ Check your PH, Maybe its too high (nutrient blockage) and dont use fertilizer too early

gpurps

gpurps Thank you, have to figure out how to check soil PH, have been checking the water I use which I adjust to around 6.2-6.4

zdgrows37

zdgrows37 What’s your temp & humidity? Do you follow VPD? If you not in the correct Range with VPD you will notice weird stuff like this .
