Day 42:
End of week six!! Buds starting to grow a tiny bit more, still had a bit of stretch this week - the big one at the back right still wants to go up, had to hike my light up as far as I can get it now so I’m hoping there will be no more stretch and just bud building from now on in!
When watering today I did notice one fan leaf that looks odd, it was a lower one and had started to fade a bit but it has some grey spots on (pic below). Not noticed these spots anywhere else on any of the plants so hoping it’s localised. Anyway I removed it.

Looking nice. How's their feeding?
That deep deep green, can probably ease off on the Nitrogen.

Patience, patience, patience....
I’ve been thinking that for a while and have reduced the amount of Biobizz Fish-mix I have been using. Maybe I’ll cut it out completely.

Day 55: did some light defoliation as I was getting ‘damp’ patches where some of the leaves were sitting on each other. The tall lady has a couple of biggish buds on the two top colas, but all the others are quite small buds. Really hope they fatten up over the next couple of weeks. The 2 short ladies have lots of buds, really short inter-nodal distances, so buds are close together, but they’re all about the size of my index finger (see pic) . Really hope these get bigger or I’m in for a disappointment come harvest :(

Good that you saw the "damp" -- condensation.
Also watch for it where the leaves touch the tent walls.
Looks like you still have a couple of weeks to thicken up.
Have you changed your nutrient regime?
Drop the N (can prob eliminate altogether, your plants look very heavy green!)
And up the P and K (but don't be silly with quantities...)
In the end, little sticky buds work just the same as big sticky buds.
It's the sticky that counts....
Unless you want bragging rights................................
Nothing to be disappointed with.
Don't compare yourself to some of the master growers here....

After the spotting appeared on the tall girls leaves (cal def) I did some investigating as to why as she was getting plenty in her feeds. Ph’d her soil - was 6.0-/6.1 so I think there was some lock out. I watered with pain water ph’d to 7 just to try and bring up the soil ph a bit, will be doing that for the next watering too.
Yes I cut out the fish mix completely since you last mentioned the N overload. Just using the topmax and biobloom (and a little alga mic) all from Biobizz on the two short plants as they aren’t showing any signs of cal deficiency like their big sister.

Okay, cool, sounds like you got it in hand.
Patience. :D

Hi buddy!

The problem of not having enough air circulation between the plants is the appearance of fungi. Another problem is that some leaves can cover others and this causes the plant not to grow correctly.

The best option is to remove leaves to activate air circulation between the plants. Try to discard any leaves that are stained.

Sweet smokes!

Day 62:
A bit of defoliation again just to help air flow through my cramped little tent! Buds are getting really sticky, but still don’t appear to be swelling as much as I’d like. Maybe I’ve been hypnotised by my previous xxl grow so I’m expecting big buds like those but this is the first “non xxl” auto I’ve grown.
Smell is fruity, will get some trich pics taken as I’ll be checking these later. Tomorrow marks the end of week 9 (that’s the guideline finishing date) but I think I have at least a week or 2 to go yet.
