First auto grow outdoors

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

So im on week 9 if my math is correct and i have 11 mixed autos outdoors in ground using the insta transplant method usee fflw and ffhf. Used no nutes until about a month in as they flourished well without anything at that time . Now what im concernee about is if they are showing a deficiency or if they are telling me its time to flush and harvest heres some pictures (from week 4 and onwards ive been doing the 2 ff blooming nutes with the general every other watering schedule)
Also as i had no signs of def until now i wasnt checking ph of water so take that into factor of what i may need to do thanks in advance all

Couple more pictures these were from a little over a week ago lighting was bad on the ones i took today im getting a jewelers scope in 2 or 3 days any other advice would still be welcomed should i keep the nutes on another week and double check the ph before i start? Then after a week begin my 2 week flush til harvest?

so i had to chop 2 down before i started a proper flush due to 2 spots mold developed(rain/humidity). After removing the areas infected im left with some stinky sticky lovely nugs. Will the flavor be affected much if any due to no flush on these? Im starting a 1.5 week tomorrow and will harvest the rest hopefully i didnt ruin those 2.

I had to cut a Fastbuds Pineapple Express yesterday and a Mexican Airlines also. I had moved them outside back around July but put them back in the tent last week. They were weeks past the stated harvest date recommended but the pistils were not turning like others I have harvested but I was getting rain and high humidity outside. I decided to cut them and dry them as the Pineapple had a huge central cola and I spotted a small brown spot and was worried about rot. It may have been a bug doing damage but I have it drying now.

The Mexican Airlines had a small larva in one of the colas and I had to toss a few buds out of it but I got a good amount from each plant for the smaller pots they were in. 3 gallon and 7 gallon.

I had checked earlier last week and the trichomes were cloudy with some amber so I should be OK. The leaves on the Pineapple were still dark green but the Mexican Airlines were turning yellow mostly. The Mexican Airlines was at 11 weeks I believe.

I use very low levels of Fox Farms trio and don't usually flush and my weed burns fine and I don't notice any bad taste but I almost always smoke in a small bong. If I roll a joint it burns fine. Most here say flushing is a myth. I give my outdoor plants huge amounts of water though. I use felt pots and have to water twice a day with the temperatures in the 80's and constant wind blowing outside. I'm probably flushing constantly with all the water. I use 3, 7 and 11 gallon felt pots and 5 gallon plastic pots and my plants get so big that on a hot day within hours the soil in the pot feels dry and the pot is light.

I don't always adjust my Ph but when I do I just add so much Ph down as it always takes about the same with my well. I also have never checked the water coming out of my pots as run off. I have never checked ppm on water going in or out. My plants seem to grow fine. I do have problems with humidity, I live on a small island, no matter how dry it is during the day, at night the humidity outside goes to 98%.

I do have to check my plants for bugs though. I don't want to use pesticides of any kind, even safe ones. I sprayed the ground outside of my grow area and I look for caterpillars and pick them off and today saw some grasshoppers. I've got some big autoflowers and one big bushy 6 foot tall indica photoperiod of some unknown type in flower outside. I'm trying to keep it under six feet tall by bending the top branches down.

Nice ! I harvested everything but a couple small branches that didnt get good sun exposure had a little mold but nothing crazy maybe a gram total i had to remove. I didnt notice some little white sacks the larva im guessing i snipped up the buds to go on a drying rack so i removed the couple i found. Already at 55% area jarred with 58 boevedas and burping once or twice a day flavors not there yet as its like 2 days now into jar but the buzz is surely there

Flushing plants in ground is pointless. I only flush those potted, and am getting to the point I see no reason to flush in soil, potted or not, as your not going to get all the nutrients out, no matter how much water you run thru. You can get rid of the excess, but there's a lot that's going to stay in the dirt.
