Day: 120

Here’s a budshot 1 day into drying. Looks pretty fire. *UPDATE* 6 days into drying and curing the total dry weight was 21Gs. A lot better than I though, I was hoping for 14 lol.

Lemiwinks Gorgeous looking! Congratulations on a successful grow😎

Day: 119

Gave her the chop tonight at day 118 trimmed up pretty decent I think. It was pre sticky didn’t get much scissor hash just a chunk to throw on top of a bowl. Had fun dabbing and harvesting my first plant, there was so many set backs with this one and numerous times where I got so frustrated I almost tore her up lol. Glad I didn’t though, turned out to be a decent plant. Got 21 Gs wet of trim, idk what the dry will be. And 107gs wet of frosty sticky nugs, some of it was pop corn nugs but it’s all good. Sorry for so many pictures, it’s been a fun but stressful one. I put all the buds in brown paper bags folded 3 times with a little space left, I just put a layer of buds in each and threw them in my tent along with my Forgotten cookies, do you all think it will be okay that way? I’m gonna be checking the buds once a day to see how dry they’re getting, testing the stems out. Once they snap how I want them to I’ll throw them in mason jars for another week or so. I don’t have a humidity or temperature monitor so I’m sorta just winging it like usual, all the bags are layered pretty much the same. I’ve got 7 brown baggies of nugs. Any input on this would be appreciated. I have a new grow journal up for a forgotten Cookies from Mephisto in a 3 gal Air-Pot on day 10, just transferred her. I feel a lot more confident going into this one. Thanks guys ✌

VdubBud I would of hung the buds rather than in bags. Less likely to get mould

Day: 114

Will start flushing at next watering, which will be about 3 days. Just fed her with 2 1/2 liters of plain PhD tap water to 6.5, run off was 6.4. Did a lot of defoliation in this last 2 weeks.

Day: 106


Nugs are starting to look pretty nice, I’d say this one doesn’t have much longer. I germinated a Mephisto forgotten cookies the other day, soaked in PhD water for 18 hours, saw the seed shell start to crack and put her straight into a solo cup.

Day: 102

Day 102, how much longer could this tiny plant possibly take? I’m guessing about another 2 weeks or so. Noticed some of the tiny leaves on one of the buds turning a dark purple color or black. Hoping it’s nothing too serious, a lot of the fan leaves seems to be changing color, and the stems on the leaves are turning purple as well. Other than that the buds are fattening up! Looking decent. I’m hoping for maybe 10 grams dry lol. Got my pack of 3 Mephisto Forgotten cookies seeds today, gonna be growing them in air pots for the next grow. I’m praying Mephisto does a lot better than what I’ve had with Growerschoiceseeds so far, I feel like I could’ve already had 2 grows under my belt in the time it’s taken for just this one. Here’s some updated pictures on day 102.

Jdbeach_2000 I read you should get a small microscope or eye loupe and check the trichomes. They should be cloudy to Amber. I’m at 111 days. I have a microscope coming next week to check them. But most of my plants say 9 to 10 weeks of flower and I’m at almost 8 weeks of flower.

Day: 89


Here she is day 89. Buds are starting to form on all of the branches, some slower than others I’m not sure why but whatever lol. Upped the nutes to 2 ml of tiger bloom and 2 ml of big bloom per gallon. Came home from work and a lot of the leaves were completely dropped downward, I fed her 2 liters of water with the higher dosage of nutrients and within a couple hours all the leaves were perked up back to normal. I’m gonna wait another week then snap some more macro pictures of the trichomes. Ditching the clay pots ordered some 3 gallon air pots for my next grow. Will keep updated weekly from now on, thanks ✌🏻

Gocolts18 When using the fox farms trio go by the feeding schedule. Don't go half nutes like everyone seems to say. I use them and called the company. They said to do what the schedule says. They're not going to burn your plants.

Gocolts18 Yes, even if you're using a super soil like fox farms ocean forest.

Day: 85

Gave some more bloom nutes seemed to respond well, all the outer branches are starting to bud now, seems to be a lot of upward growth and pistils shooting up from the outer branches as well. The main middle cola is starting to frost up nice and look pretty good too.

Day: 75

Taking her time. Haven’t really changed much except upping the nutrients and tying down some more branches underneath that have already grown outward and up.

Day: 68

This little one might actually turn out to be some alright smoke. The whole plant height is like 8 inches but I LST’d it down flat. Looks more like a bush now to me.

Day: 65

Honestly feel like this ones gonna take forever lol. Won’t amount to much but she has recovered fairly decently from all the stunts also my 1st plant ever. I feel like getting my Ph dialed in was the main problem of my grow. Mixed 1ml of Tiger bloom and 2ml of big bloom in a Gallon of Ph’d water to 6.4 been feeding with 1.1 liters about every 2 1/2 days. Not sure if I should start doing some more defoliation my plant seems kind of bushy, I’ve still been tying the main branches down and it’s been responding really well to the minor LST that I’ve done also been tucking leaves I think she’s going into flower is why I started the bloom nutes, I’ve read a lot of autos from GCS have went 100+ days, NL being one of those strains. It’s looking like she may finish around day 100 or so lol.

Any feedback. My leaves are dark and drooping now. Switched out the metal for some Sturdy plant ties that I found at tractor supply. They’re more of like bread ties.

Day: 31


Decided to try some LST. I have no clue what I’m doing but I think this is correct lol

Bassman You want to LST your main branches, not fan leaves. You really should top it and LST the main branches that come out. Hope this helps 👍🏾

Day: 26

Here’s an updated picture. I haven’t really changed anything since last picture except for switching to rain water. I don’t have a Ph tester or any CalMag atm. This is my first grow so really I’m just trying to learn the basics. I was thinking about trying some LST sometime soon.

ClandestineWestOz You aren’t feeding it are you?

Joe85 What would you feed it ? I’m new to nutrients

Cmersh Na I hadn’t fed her at all. It’s in Happy frog soil. I think something was off with the Ph of my water, my tap water is really hard

Greenhouseguy95 Hey man. Test your ph. The yellowing is an iron deficiency. Generally what happens when your ph is to far off.


Greenhouseguy95 Give her a calmag feeding if you have any

Day: 9

ClosetQueen87 Seems she’s also moving a bit slow compared to my northern lights auto, but I’m no expert. Is your water ph good? Are you feeding anything yet?

Day: 7

A little bit over an inch, has a slight lean to it. Still a little bit of yellowing in middle of new leaves. Other than that going as planned. End of week 1.
