    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!

Nice man!! Those buds are so cool looking never seen any that look like this!!! Good job!
I just discovered a whole world of purple plants myself. So many varieties to choose from. Just not something you typically see unless you look if you know what I mean.

Well, we are dry and in jars!

Possibly still lose a little weight during curing but she came in just under 3 1/2 ounces of good buds and about another ounce of larfy buds and trim.

I am now all setup for what looks to be another bushy indica. I have been able to grow a very even canopy that I will continue to spread out further than the last as I have the space with just one plant.

I do have one issue... The bottom fan leaves are huge and even much of the new growth develops substantial fan leaves quickly. This is always my dilemma as I start to find moisture building between leaves that touch sometimes. At this point I feel kinda forced to clip a couple of these leaves strictly for air flow.

other than that I am now using about 80% nutrient strength as I was seeing signs of what looked to be overfeeding as mentioned. Things appear to be improving but I know it will take awhile to show.

OG is coming along... I believe I have fixed an overfeeding issue and it looks like we are now flowering finally.

Noticed some pistils starting Sunday morning and started transitioning to bloom nutes while still only running 60% strength. At 80 percent we were still seeing signs of nuts burn and overfeeding so giving her a few days and then slowly turning up the bloom nutes.

As to the LST, I am working on that even canopy with this one and since she is on her own we can spread her out. Definitely liking this style of LST and the choice to top at the 3rd node. Working well together so far...

Thanks for this journal. I'm planning to top and LST my first grow and these step by step pics and descriptions are really helpful.

Also nice to see how well this can go when you know what you're doing.

Should be a couple weeks from harvest now. Battles some deficiencies for the last few weeks but we will be just fine. ;)

Happy Growing!!!

OG Kush got a haircut a few days ago!

I chopped the upper most buds to give the lower stuff some more time and light.

Chopped and trimmed most of the top buds...

And amazingly the plant still looks huge. Lol
