Thanks @MissUniverse , been looking at yours, very nice too. :greenthumb:

Update - Day 57

First two pictures from days 51 and 53, but the text content and final photo, relates to Day 57

The buds are continuing to develop and fill out nicely.

Lots of buds around the plant, but it is difficult to get into the tent to take a good photo.

Growing "Jungle Style" is not my choice (this grow), but other events have left me with 6 plants in a 4 plant space, and need to manage it (as best as I can).

Purple Stilton is the large plant (back left) in the photo below...

She has topped out now (with a little helping bend or two) at somewhere around 5ft 3".

Showing a little leaf droop & curl in the main cola area, I believe this is down to localised heat stress (at the top of the tent) and have now added another fan to try and help her.

But, she is also showing signs of some Ph problems, so I checked the soil and it came in at Ph 5.8 to 6.0 (at different points in the pot/soil).

I want it to be around Ph 6.4, so I checked all the other pots, and they are all at, or very close, to Ph 6.4 (spot on for me).

She is sharing a reservoir with 5 other plants that are all happy with the feed they are getting, same soil, same everything ?..

I will monitor this closely and possibly put her on her own (adjusted) feed.... When I work out what the deficiency / toxicity is that's causing it.

I anticipate around 3 weeks to go (including a water only week), so I hope/think we can sort it.

You can see the droop and leaf curl in the photo below, but it hasn't inhibited bud growth and she continues to fill out.

I am also going to trim/defoliate some leaf from around the bud.

I have 2 going at day 51. And they would have outgrown my 63" tent at least a week ago had it not for some bending. PS clearly has the potential to go big. And they look beautiful too!

@Frogster just had time to read the whole post over properly. You can notice my grows did that too on the autoseeds companies in general. They feed different than other autoflower. And I'm not quite the greatest grower yet so I wasnt able to lock down what it was hut my wool and run off was ok. My buds always turned out fine and strong even with nutrient problems suffered at my hands because I am a newbie and cant tell the difference between salt and pepper :)

Update Day 60

Just an update, with some pictures taken yesterday (Day 60)

The tent is full with six plants, but the "Purple Stilton" takes up 25% of the tent.

Shown here, the "Purple Stilton" is to the left

Tent Day 60.jpg


She is a big girl.... Tall and wide... and full of big buds that are still filling out.

Looking a bit better now... The main cola has had a little hair cut and the extra fan has helped her.

Update Day 68

We are on the final stage of the grow.

The problem with growing different strains at the same time is there has to be some compromise.

She has developed in to a true MONSTER plant, with huge heavy Colas, she could go another week or two.... However, for many reasons, I need to chop them all at the same time.

I need to use the tent to dry the plants and clean and set it up for the next leg.

So, as all the plants in the tent share the same reservoir, they have now been put on a "No Feed" week of Ph'd Water, prior to all of them getting the chop next week.

The leaves on the Purple Stilton are starting to turn, she is tall, fat and sticky, I am happy she will produce a good haul.

Day 72 Update

The Purple stilton has issues.... Big Issues.....

Well actually the "Biggest Issue" is the size & weight of the buds, combined with a crowded tent.

The crowding and the other plants close around her have helped to hold her up, but as they have been moved / removed, some of her stems have given up and folded over and they have started to die off.

There is no way I can get her out of the tent in one piece, without a lot of plant damage, so a photo of her in the tent will have to do.

I lifted the broken stems back up for the photo. She stands over 5ft tall and the buds are big.

She goes under the knife later this evening, and will be finished trimming for drying tomorrow.

To get a full length photo is difficult and the Battle Code is difficult to see, so added it in here as a close up.

Post Harvest Update

2 Days drying and the Buds are crisping up, shrinking less than anticipated and still dense.

A few more days drying then into Jars, and a long slow cure with plenty of burping.

The trics are everywhere and looking good, fat, sticky, and all stages of cloudy.

This should be a good smoke and make good meds.

The plant has produced a huge haul, So I may use some for processing into edibles.
