I scoped another small bud from mid way up the plant. Seeing mostly cloudy crystals again with some trichromes missing their mushroom caps. Tuesday or Wednesday I'll harvest her. Thank you for your input @WildBill and for being kind enough to share your knowledge.

It is with a heavy heart (not seriously) that I have to report that I've whacked down the Fast Buds Original OG Kush auto plant. I saw enough to cut her down and get her down and get her hanging. I removed one branch for a photo and then removed all the buds to put into a brown paper bag to dry in the fridge. Those will go to my official taste tester in 10 or 12 days. This has definitely not been my favorite plant to grow but upon dissecting her, removing all those bloody leaves I think she'll be okay. I'll report back with her dry weight when I've got it.

As the journal for the OG Kush auto has been completed that leaves me with the Quarter Pounder auto X Dark Devil auto. If anyone has any interest in seeing this plant through to completion please comment below. If nobody is interested I will quit with the posts of her progress and not be disappointed in the least. I did snap a picture of one of her buds this morning. Pleased to see some purple (Dark Devil trait) starting to show up and she is starting to exude an interesting aroma.

Edit: dry them in the fridge?
It is called the low and slow method of drying your buds. I wet dry my buds and buy regular old brown paper lunch bags into which I add 28 (give or take) grams of wet buds. I roll the top of the bag over a few times, lay the bag flat and gently shake the bag to flatten out the pile of buds and spread them out. Into the fridge they go. About every 3 days I take the bags out of the fridge and by hand stir up the buds, put them back into the bag, fold and back in the fridge they go. If I had to give you an average of how long it takes start to finish I would say 14 ish days.

And you'll need to develop a "feel" for when they are dried and ready for the jars. In the beginning I would always jar them up too soon only to have to put them back in the bags again for another couple/few days. This method preserves more terpenes then any other method I've tried.

Somebody got a haircut!!

I believe my QPA X DDA has finished stretching so it was time she got a major haircut. I know many of you cringe when you hear or see this so you might want to close your eyes and not look at these pictures. I personally feel that she now has much more light penetration and air flow and she still has a ton leaves left.

Here is the before shots.
