    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

Nothing to measure with other than fingers snapping stems. I based my bagging by other's performance using the same method, brown paper grocery bags, ambient humidity of the bag by hydrometer, bud feel and stem resiliency. My buds were fairly thick might have used one or two more days.
I've burped the bags several times and with a more accurate hydrometer, the humidity levels are where I want them and they are stable now.
I tend to leave on more stem than most I've seen here. It's an attempt to get as long of a dry as possible. Evidently it worked! LOL!

@WildBill Sounds like your getting dialed in as we speak. Cant wait to hear about your product after the cure.

I pulled a bud from my first bag. Even at this time in cure, the smell and taste has a very marked improvement.Humidity is now rock steady!
I took the half pound bags and filled them with buds. Once the humidity levels were stable for 4 days, I put most of it into 1/2 oz opaque bags and heat sealed them. Weights are rock steady also.

Buds are firming up and seemingly getting a little more sticky. Does anyone find the buds get a little more sticky? I find that a little odd, but this is new territory for me.

I have not noticed them getting more sticky. The quality has improved compared to my old method.

I am filling many 1/4 pound bags from this bumper crop I am currently harvesting. I have a couple of the zip-locks separating but it is not a problem for me because I heat seal. I believe this issue has been address by Grove already.

In the bags:

A few more days hanging then a sweat in paper bags, then Grove bags.

One more plant still in the tent. I may hit 700g/M² on this grow!

Maybe the firmness makes it feel more sticky.

Fer S&G's, I should calculate my g/M² :eyebrows:

Using g/watt is not a good metric between Autos and Photos because of the huge time difference so g/M² is a better comparison on yield. I have never don better than 525/M².
