    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!

The 5th week comes to an end, and I'm crossing my fingers that the stretch has too
20191127_062750.jpg

She has grown an inch a day the past two weeks,
Main is Only 13" from the light now, still nicely spread out just letting her do her thing,

I have one more foam block to remove if I start seeing some stress to the tops before I have to get creative
She's kind of taking over the tent haha
I'm starting to think I should go with smaller pots, save the 3 gals for outside


And as you can see there is no week old seedling in the second pot there...
The seed case came off, looked a little funky but I was optimistic...

However in the tent two days later...

Looks like the roots hit the manure and she burned right up, I guess I didnt make a large enough pocket of seedling soil in the center
Probably going back to little pots and my germ pad from now on haha

Happy growing everyone

She's looking great! Sorry to hear about the seedling, I've had a bit of a run of bad luck with my last few seedlings too, glad you were able to figure it out without too many casualties!

6 weeks down, The stretch has stopped... I think,
20191204_061704.jpg

we are sitting at 28" tall main cola and those four main branches that came from the 2nd and 3rd node are about 4" shorter
20191204_061619.jpg

She has been drinking more the past 2 weeks
About 1.5L every two days rather than twice a week, top dressed with a couple hand-fulls of worm castings at the end of the 5th week and have just been watering in, i think a light first fertigation with my flowering nutes will be next watering. I was hoping I wouldn't need extra cal mag but she's definitly looking for some, might grab a bottle to have on hand for growing under the LEDs
Never had a problem outside, and I'm thinking I'll keep playing around using one soil mix and just supplement the couple plants indoors than have two different soil mixes going. For now anyways


In other news I set up my seedling station in the other side of my tent, 15W blurple and a germ pad, dropped a seed last week, turned everything on, next day the little pot was almost hot to the touch,
if it were a cuppa tea it was still enjoyably warm to drink haha
Note: Germ pads up the ambient temp 10 to 15 degrees Celsius, used correctly...
Meaning with my tent already sitting around 27C
my poor little seed was probably about 45-50C
She cracked open but never grew, boiled alive

So thirds times the charm with the new tent
Heat mat unplugged
Day 1 today

Happy growing everyone :pass:

Day 2
Update already?
Conveniently right after I burned that first seed I tried planting straight into final pot
20191205_202539.jpg

Tap root has already grown right out of the pot!
Meaning this is little sprout has like 4-5" of root already, into soil sunday night,
yeah... my pocket of seedling soil was nowhere near large enough in that first attempt haha

Happy growing-like-a-weed everyone:smokeit:

Ya I am glad I got me a 7’ tall tent cuz my LED has to be 20” max as close as plant can get to it and plant alone is over 40” tall now with pot so light would be attached directly to tent roof without rope ratchets if tent was only 5’ tall! Looking good and you’ll be happy with results after topping 1! My 1st attempt is looking to pay off well! Keep em lit bro!

Yep, my light is zip-tied right to the cross members
10" pot, 28"plant, 12" from light:help:
If I start seeing some stress I'll switch the little clips on the light and gain a couple inches haha

And thanks for the encouragement, I am definitely planning to top this next one,
I'm thinking I'll do it at the 5th node, based off the structure of this first, basically six nice nodes before the stretchy main,

And she's running a little long eh?
Lots of good sized bud sites though:eyebrows:
Do you think topping had anything to do with slowing it down some? I read somewhere it adds a week or two:shrug:
 
7th week / 1st week

49 days above soil
20191211_054819.jpg
20191210_063114.jpg

Starting to eat some of the lower leaves this week, going to up the nutes next fertigation and see if it helps,:shrug: it's time to just keep her happy and watch them buds swell up, Lots of nice sized pistil puff balls so far:eyebrows:let's see how this light does in flower, got a few more weeks yet.


7 days above soil for this pretty lady
She loved her life in the germ station:woohoo1:
20191211_055036.jpg

Smooth transplant, splash of water to seal the deal, She looks on track to be even larger at two weeks, hope I can keep up the momentum:thumbsup:
Happy growing everyone:pass:

Ya I’d say topping slows em down some! Also be careful where u top 1st time cuz you can end up with a bunch of satellites needing to be tied open! If not when the tops grow back can cause them to be sitting in the shade and not develop right! My lil gelato I didn’t count the 1st leafs just the Tri leafs and then 4 more nodes and now having to move 8-10 ties daily and sometimes multiple times a day! It will slow u down some tho cuz this is day 52 on this lil bitch!
image.jpg
It can pay off in the end tho! This is 1st attempt at topping finishing up here!
image.jpg Should pay off for u tho! Looking nice buddy and keep em lit!

56 days old
20191218_190739.jpg

busy week, fertigation was a couple days late, fan leaves have done their job though, buds are still fattening up:thumbsup: finally grabbed some cal/mag yesterday hope it isn't too late to help, was hoping I could get on without and that it was more just hydro guys but damn these new LEDs are hungry :shrug: I'll just keep her moving along to the finish, couple weeks to go.


2 weeks old for this little miss, another real quick gal :eyebrows: but she's growing quite differently than the first, almost no branching has started from the nodes this time.
20191218_062711.jpg
20191218_062724.jpg

I think it may be the greater light distance, the first plant I had up on all the foam blocks, only 26" from the light, Now both pots are right on the ground, 36" from the light
She is growing a little more like I'm used to outside, possibly Christmas-tree-like rather than a branchy bush.
Of course, it's real early and I'm just guessing haha, maybe it's just different phenos, or even just plants being plants:shrug:
Happy growing everyone:pass:
