Day: 120

Havested and have been drying about 4 days now. just like last time i am smelling that shitty hay like smell so I don’t know what I am doing wrong. there is no exhaust fan so I suppose it could be part of it. temp sits around 66 F and the rH is pretty low like 39%-48%. so that could be it also. i have a vivosun fan way down low not directly blowing on them so that is not the issue. my guess is the temp is too low and it needs to increase somehow

Day: 108

As unflattering as most of my pictures are both girls have shown insane improvement as well as bulking on weight. “Growers Choice Seeds” says that this is a “Longer” 11week flower time plant giving me 12 more days from now

A- Doing her damn best man. Proud of her no matter the yield. I CANT top an auto like this. this grow is the proof Z- An example of a good (Average) Auto flower Great data will grow this again most likely

“Mind the Gap” The girls are well. The gap in my posting was due to the insanity following the corona virus and all of its public appearance. because of this I have put the girls on a shorter water schedule keeping 1 cap full of the Fox farm nutrients. SO. i have learned indefinitely that while growing cannibis especially autoflowers PAY attention to your leaves and never go over the recommended amount. I have played it so safe giving low to no maintenance other then clipping ANY leaves blocking bud sites as well as keeping my grow room clean and keeping the water the same although the pH is too high sitting at 6.5 i have kept it the same to not shock the plants this late in the game. A- has shows strange and not so pretty signs and its damage early in life really is starting to show. bud is not as thick. leaves not too big. the damage to the AUTOFLOWER was the issue, next cycle will prevent that. Z- is a perfect example of what this plant should look like. it is a beautiful plant with strong leaves and colas getting a little shaky from density.

here we are in Flower Day 4 A- Is thin and tiny but showing preflower like crazy Z- I believe has fully flipped over and is now showing tiny pistols T- Still unknown. waiting for a good sign of a female or a male which i will dispose of. also testing defoliation in flower.

I have raised and have been vegging some very different plants. I assure everyone that A and Z are both the same AutoFlowering “Critical Purple” seeds and T is a fresh “unknown” bag seed from a very seedy bud I was lucky to get right when I needed a good testing “control” strain A- Still showing preflower and the weird deficiency. need to trim at least x4 leaves Z- getting bulky and hard. time to start trimming i think x4 leaves will be fine T- Trim time x4 at least leaves

A- Started preflowering today. A is 57 days old today. A has been showing deficiencies slightly. could be because of preflower Z- is larger and more luscious than her sister autoflower. Z has shown no pre flower but is only 52 days old as it was germinated a bit late T- is only 49 days old today and has shown that it wants to play rough with the auto’s. i have had my lights on a 24 hour schedule as my heat and Rh situation is still pretty rough. I am going to give the girl 2 hours in the dark today to begin see how it does for them temp wise

A- Notes on A suffered damage when I watered on 2/2/2020 a leaf that was tied down snapped. plant is still chugging along but is showing signs of pre flower which does not make much sense. Z- Notes on Z is suffering from some deficiency. going to water with a single cap of the Grow Big Organic from fox farm after I dry them out for a few more days. i want the soil bone dry before i water again T- For some reason shares Z’s deficiency and I will be doing the same dry out and feeding to try getting a hold of this deficiency as it is not effecting any of their new growth T-

A- Fully Recovered and has tons of new tops coming in. I would almost argue its going to do better then Z. it will have a very “bush” look to it because of that accidental top Z- Thick Leaves and will be blooming pretty big buds if it keeps up. I am bending it now to the left to fill in the bare spots T- Still Looking a bit rough from its Nitrogen Deficiency but we have moved past it and have nice thick leaves coming in on a few strong new tops I am bending into a corkscrew

A- 8 colas now and in the front for LST because its new branches need to be ready to support big weight Z- 12 colas, moved back needs a few more weeks in time before my big bends T- 14 colas front and center and really picking up speed.

The name of the game is LST and that is “Low Stress” taken pretty lightly since I am bending these girls pretty hard every morning and still they continue to grow and show new growth.

A- Has been moved on to the back so its 2 big main tops can start stretching to the light. Z- Got the business today with with wire it looks like its being held prisoner by some super villain. T- Has been moved front and center as it is exploding. really thinking our “unknown” is a sativa. the Lemonish smell from my gloves suggests a “Durben” pheno

A- has tons new bud sites coming in after the horrid accident topping I did on the 8th. it has since recovered and has 2 health main tops coming in which i have just started LST on. Z- has been hauling ass in the Veg department. have only 2 wires on it at the moment with one small one just hanging on the large fan leaf to weigh it down and reveal the tiny 5 new bud sites T- has really friggin surprised me. for an unknown plant and an unknown pheno this thing is keeping up with my autos and is showing massive new bud sites

A- After an accidental LST became a terrifying HST. the Topped Autoflower i named A has since recovered and is sprouting 2 tops. it should make for an interesting plant when flowered out Z- Z has come a long way in the seedling world. she is just starting to open up and is starting to look good enough for a LST in a 2 or 3 days, Friday the 17th on notes T- has come such a long way and has really gained some weight in the leaves. I will be keeping a massive eye on it as It is a photo seed and an unknown strain. once my auto’s finish growing depending on T’s size I may flower or keep it for further tests. as of now i have 2 autos and an unknown. one auto is topped and one will start LST soon, as far as i know all is well. 2nd Organic feeding as well so plain water this weekend followed by the 3rd feeding and 1st official Veg feeding.

I am well on the way to having 3 healthy vegging plants. they are roughly 3 feet from the 600w LED and have just been watered this morning. they are also on a fixed 24 hour light schedule to see how my plant labeled “T” will handle the change since autos are more common on 24 hr schedules.

Cant Complain. T almost passed Z and A should be in official Veg soon which is great. these are coming along way better then the first test plant.

Day: 11

The new set up is using some new numbers I ran and figured I was not using the most of my space. So being a new grower I used the chance to practice on a 3rd strain which is now in the room with the autos. this is getting interesting

Day: 8

<ROUGH>. is one way to describe the last 8 days. A1 is more stressed then a Nam vet at a heavy metal concert; had to replant it and put two little random supports around it just to help the damn thing from falling over from the fans power. A2 decided to hide till I physically excavated its ass and made it come out and see the light. PTSD plant “A2” is for sure stunted and stressed as fuuuck. A3 is a whole other story, yeah A3 decided to commit friggin seppuku and we are now down to 2 plants that may need a priest more then a botanist. They are resiliant little shits i will give them that. keeping an eye and just flipped the light spectrum as well. lets see where this goes next.

Day 3 and the sprouted seedlings are in their 5 gallon buckets. I got my drill out of the garage and am going to use it to drill holes around the brims for LST as well as drill holes to allow water to flow out at the bottom on the side. i can use a side hole as well to test the run off

Still no pop on any of the seeds. humidity is up in the 80% 90% area and temp stays around 75F so i assume they are just being stubborn. Excited to begin once i see some tap roots and splitting ends
