I ran a heavy duty extension cord to my grow area with a power strip attached after a breaker started blowing. Now the power that runs my fans and extraction is on that cord and all my lights is on a bathroom sink plug with a built in breaker in the socket. Now all it good! :headbang:
I wanted to do that, but my other half was not impressed with that idea. He wants to build a panel for just that room but it's on the "to-do" list and that list is pretty long. Maybe I'll punch a hole through the wall, he won't notice right? :crying:

What are the characteristics of auto livers? New strain? Sour livers and ... ?

Thanks for any info.
Actually, it was a strain they used to make Sour Livers. Here's something that reveals more info on the "livers cut" from Mephisto. :headbang: Even tho it says it will be released soon, it has only been offered as a freebie, (if your lucky). :headbang:

In January of 2015 we set about to create a bx project for our Artisanal collection. To improve the quality of our auto blues and to progress locking down more of the traits from our all time favourite strain into automatic form.

The main project was to use our Auto Blues as the auto parent to back cross to our livers cut and work to auto again over at least 4 generations. (That is also due out soon as the pure Auto livers)


At the same time we decided to make two other crosses for the fun of it, also crossing sour crack and chem city blues to the livers.
Fast forward a little over two years,the work is complete and we're super stoked to launch something that has developed into an astonishingly nice automatic: Sour Livers.

To those unfamiliar, 'The Livers' is an old school cutting that has been kept alive and spread mostly between growers in the North of England since at least the early 90's,the reason being simple it's incredible as both a commercial producer and as a high quality top shelf head-stash variety. Strains come and go over time, but there's definitely a reason cuttings from this era are still doing the rounds, the exodus cheese, Psychosis, Northern lights to name a few others.

The only slight, if you can call it a downside, of the cutting is the intense level of aroma, and a very distint but delicious aroma that the variety cranks out.
The catch 22 is that often it's impossible to sell any flowers in those areas that aren't this strain because it's all people want and love, but due to the aforementioned odor level it has been referred to as 'prison weed'- but have a good filter and no problemo.:)
It definitely sets the bar for high quality dope.
Mated to our Sour Crack we've blended two of our very favourite strains together, over each generation we selected for the 'livers' aroma and flower structure and the greasy sticky resin that is produced in abundance by the Sour Crack.

Sour livers is positively loaded with terps, everytime you even get close you want to give the flowers a finger hug, and that aroma sticks on your fingers for hours after. Yes, people may look at you strangely perpetually smelling you fingers.

She's a really unique strain, and is way up there in the top strains we have made. Definitely expect to see a few special sour livers based hybrids on the horizon too in 2017.


Strain behaviour and structure:
To cut to the chase the Sour Livers is not a monster large strain. Given her heritage she is far more inline with the Auto-SOG style of plant, But she is a compact bushy variety of top notch quality, and for her size she packs a lot of flowers into a small area.
Give her a smooth ride in the seedling stage and it's plain sailing from there on out, she's not over fussy or finicky and once established will handle good levels of feed.
She absolutely benefits from some leaf tucking to expose those lateral branches she pushes out from early on, and encourage them to grow upwards and you'll be in for a treat of a mini-multicola'd gal.
It's also worth clearing out fluff on the internal and lower parts of the Sour Livers to ensure all energy gets diverted to the primo sites. A very small amount of work in those areas will result in the best possible results.
Variation between phenotypes is minimal, even under hps which can make plants stretch more the end size difference is minimal.
She does respond nicely to some gentle LST if you wish to, but really her natural bushiness makes it uneccesary for the most part.
Sour livers is a quick strain with a low overall cycle time, she switches from seedling to flower very quickly and then full into bud mode very quickly.
The flowers she produces are highly aromatic with an intoxicating scent, she really oozes terps and the resin on her fans sparkles.
The flowers are compact with very nice density, and as a result the end product is properly a looker.
We definitely recommend to ensure your odor control is fully working, as this is one of our smelliest strains. Don't chance it without.

Sorry for the lack of an update! I took some pics a few days ago,but I couldn't get them to upload. GWK is finally starting to swell up some, but I still feel like the buds haven't developed as much as they should have. Her smell is amazing! A cross between a skunky grape and turpentine that's really strong! Here's a couple pics!

Auto Livers is doing well also and she's well into pre-flower. Hopefully the stretch is over, as shes nearly as tall as the GWK! Here's a couple pics and thanks for stopping by! :headbang:

Looking good N4W, you have two plants in that space right?
With your shower taken up, you must be getting pretty ripe about now :pighug:

My 3 GWK buds did not develop as much as I thought they would. Mine are on day 67 today. And look similar to yours. I have not seen many pictures of the first illum release to compare to so I don't know if this is typical or not. I know one picture posted by @Dr.Bubbles had amazingly big frosty buds and that's what was in my mind, so was a little disappointed with my 3. Not sure if it was just me and something i did or did not do. Or a gene/pheno thing. I have 15 beans left so there will be plenty of opportunity to see more of them grow out.

He's referring to this monster. This was the original Illuminauto. I still have a bunch of seeds of it. Not sure how close GWK 2 is to the original...but THIS is what people are referring to as the craziest autoflowers ever and the reason we started the movement to not let her go extinct.

This was in a 3.5 gallon homemade airpot, Canna Coco plus perlite, RO water, mycorrhiza, humic fulvic acid, CES silica, Humboldt Cal-mag, AN 3 part or Cutting Edge 3 part, pH to about 5.8 and slowly rising through finish, no flush, under 1818 Citizen KAAAHBS 90 CRI @ 3000k + 4000k at 52w each. LST starting early, kept it as short as possible.

Actually, there's 2 more plants that fit next to the Auto Livers, (AutoSeeds GSC and Bomb Seeds Berry Bomb). Plus, there's a smaller plant, (Amnesia Haze CBD), in one of the corners in the shower next to the GWK! I've started the flush on the AH CBD. Here's a pic from a few days ago and I'll put up a pic of the whole grow later! :headbang:

Hmmm! Well as least I feel like I have good company! I ordered the 7 pack, so I still have several more beans to grow out too! How did she smoke, smell! :headbang:

Note: I'll be replacing the burnt out cob light with a new lens, (thanks to Dan at Timber Grow Lights for the quick response and new lens!), and I'll be adding a T-12 Flower Power 4ft UV light in the next day or so! Hopefully, I'll also get the wall fan mounted that arrived a few days ago, so I can get rid of the fan in the chair.

Ok. Here's a pic when you open the door!

This is a pic of the expanded grow area I did last fall, (mostly by removing the commode/toliet). The GSC stays in the same spot, and I rotate the other two girls!

IMG_20190416_182115.jpg


This is an attempt to get a pic of the Amnesia Haze CBD.

IMG_20190416_182124.jpg


Finally, a pic of the GWK! :headbang:

Top 3 ever. So sticky it will literally stick to the wall, SUPER POTENT indica high...as good as any Afghanni or Kush I've ever smoked, including Hindu, which can pack a psychedelic high. The taste isn't my absolute favorite, it robs the air from your lungs and has this ultra greasy flavor, but it's super identifiable and unique. I like Blueberry crosses and Grape phenos for flavor usually...sometimes with the cheese and diesel. This had a bit of the fuel pump flavor. It's not bad, just not my absolute favorite..
But the kids are gonna love it. I also made some ISO Shatter with it. That shit is next level one hit blast offs.

I agree with the stickyness and fuel smell. It kind of reminds me of a smell I got off 2 Fastbuds Blackberrys a few yrs back that I really loved. In fact, I was sad after ordering and growing one out a couple months ago! It didn't smell anything like the old ones, but more like Blackberry! :shrug: Anyhoo, your description makes me more eager to try her out! Hopefully, soon I can start the flush! :headbang:
