    @Frogster weekly updates
    Germed in a shot glass, they will be potted into solo cups and transplanted into Final Autopots when ready

    As far as I can tell at this time, there has been no update regarding the Battle Manager / Team Leader for shortstuff seeds Leg 2.

    Therefore I am assuming that I Tag:- @bushmasterar15 (as he was TL for Leg 1).
    [​IMG]
    We now have a successful germination, from the reserve seed sown 4 days ago. .

    But it is still very early days, especially as she needed a bit of help to shed her helmet.

    But I will offer her all the assistance I can, and hope she grows past it.

    She just been relieved of her stuck helmet in this photo.

    [​IMG]
    wk2 My replacement Short Stuff - "Auto Star Dawg" seedling, as noted in the previous posts - the first seed failed germination.

    Still residing in my propagator at present, another few days before being transplanted to an Autopot

    She had a stuck helmet, but with luck she will pull through and develop when she hits the tent.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    wk3 Update for my Short Stuff - StarDawg

    [​IMG]
    Update - Week 4
    Changes:-


    The "StarDawg" is now feeding from the bottle... The Autopots are starting to do their thing !

    Lights raised to keep optimum distance from each plant in the tent (sharing with two others). I love the AutoCobs @BigSm0

    From today she went onto a 20/4 Light cycle.

    [​IMG]
    Update Week 5

    Tag:- @bushmasterar15

    Only growing the 1 plant from short Stuff, the "StarDawg".

    So that is my chosen "Battle Plant".

    Changes:-

    Increased Autocobs, now 110w per plant.

    Also had to add 2 x humidifiers and a dehumidifier to balance Temps & Rh in the tent.

    [​IMG]

    A bit behind the other plants in the tent, as seen below, but hey-ho..... A nice structure & I have empathy for her...

    Lets see what she can do.

    Update Week 6

    Tag:- @bushmasterar15

    My Short Stuff - "StarDawg", my chosen "Battle Plant".

    Changes this week:-
    1 week of gentle transition from Veg Nutes to Flower Nutes
    Fine tuning the tent environment daily to keep the VPD on track.

    [​IMG]

    Lets see what she can do.

    The tent as it stands today.

    [​IMG]
    Update - Week 7

    Tag:- @bushmasterar15


    This week I had to go away for a few days, so I topped up the reservoir with my flower nutrients, checked the autopot valves, set all my tent controls to Auto, and crossed my fingers.

    On my return I saw the dehumidifier had stopped draining to waste, the internal water tank had filled and shut itself off.

    This resulted in lower than anticipated temps and higher Rh, causing a low VPD.

    However, no damage done, the "StarDawg" took it all in her stride and looks well.

    No other changes, VPD is now back on track and she is turning into a very nicely structured plant.

    Later in the week I will be doing some defoliation, to open up hidden budsites.

    [​IMG]
    Update - Week 8 for Short Stuff Battle

    Filling out nicely now, and the buds are starting to "stitch" together

    I think she may take about another 4 weeks to finish where I want her, but we will re-evaluate as time gets nearer.

    Taking feed well, EC 1.8 Ph 5.8 (Soil Ph 6.2). Around 3ft 6" tall, No tip burn, deficiencies or toxicity noted.

    Added an old Mars (300w draw) LED for a bit of back and side fill.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Update Week 9 and week 10

    Tag:-@bushmasterar15

    Due to some AFN problems, Updates have been erratic.... So here we have a catch up post covering 2 weeks.

    No Changes to report, but have had a bit of a testing time keeping Temps & Rh% where needed.

    Photos taken on dates identified below.

    24th June 2019

    Buds are very sticky and smelly, I anticipate another 2, maybe 3 weeks to go, 1 week of that will be on water only diet.

    Update (End of week 11)

    Tag:-@bushmasterar15

    At 79 Days, it was time to chop her down.

    I usually grow tall monsters, but true to the Seedbank name (Short Stuff), this girl was one of the shortest plants I have grown.

    Standing around 3ft 9" from top of soil to top of main cola.

    But, she still packed it on. I am very happy with the quantity and quality of Bud she produced.

    She also produced loads and loads of leaf, and rough trimming her took forever.

    Not the easiest of plants to trim as a whole plant, but I want to dry her as a complete plant, upside down on a slow dry.

    Here is a photo of her in full plumage.

    [​IMG]

    And here are a couple 5Hrs later, rough trimmed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Buds are Big, Fat, Smelly, Sticky and reasonably dense, but not as solid as some others I have grown. However, the slow dry will help them tighten up.

    [​IMG]

    The plant is full, Buds everywhere, I am expecting a good weight when dry

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She was easy to grow, no problems, no deficiencies or toxicity issues, and took my feed well.

    So, that's it for now, I will update on the drying, and a smoke report will follow in due course.

    wk2 My Stardawg looks kind of sickly, but maybe she'll pull through! The reg is doing fine! :headbang:I

    [​IMG]
    Stardawg had a small hiccup right after germination and had 1 leave tip die and fall off, but she's doing fine now. The reg. has done great since the git-go, being the 1st of 5 to germ and it's shown a lot of vigor. I kind of hope for a female, but if male I will use/freeze his essence ... but he'll have to do his business outdoors and away from my girls! :headbang:

    Day 10 for Auto Gorilla Bigfoot. Really hope for some strain info on this.

    She is one of the best performing seedling so far. Should be topping and bending her in a few days.

    Week 2 update. Auto Gorilla Bigfoot at Day 15. Nothing much happening. Growing as good as a seedling can I guess. I am absolutely happy with her!
    [​IMG]
    Short Stuff GOTY Update Week 3

    Very nice plant at Day 23. Probably cos I started her late, I did not love her too much like I did the seedlings before her lol

    She is growing like the plants I usually grow and I'm happy with that. The color and all seems just right. Just hope I dont mess her up down the road.
    [​IMG]
    My plants don't look good at this stage as I torture them quite a bit. However, unless I screw up, they usually turn out pretty nice!

    Still hope to get some strain info though. So far so good!

    Short Stuff GOTY Update Week 4

    Auto Gorilla Bigfoot at Day 30. Very nice growth and easy to train, at least for my style. Seems normal and on track like my usual plants. Not many of these this round.
    [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see how she grows out! Still really hoping to see some strain info!

    Short Stuff GOTY Update Week 10
    Week 9 updates all lost. Gonna just post as usual.

    Auto Gorilla Bigfoot is pretty much done at Day 72. Gonna give her another week but may chop earlier if weather is too humid. She had some bad CalMag def but I kinda overlooked it and thought it was just heat stress. So the yellowing leaves will wither and possibly cause mold. We'll see how she does.

    Need a chop code dear TL
    [​IMG]
    Final Pic for Auto Gorilla Bigfoot at Day 75. Besides being quite beat up, all looks good. Rock hard nugs! Would have been a beauty if not because I missed her Calmag def.

    [​IMG]@bushmasterar15 not final pic but week 11 for me, final pic will be in by 24th.

    She's not pretty but she made it! Just on a week's flush before she gets chopped. Smells amazing and crazy sticky.

    Im hoping I can present her in a vase for the final pic as she ain't gonna be easy to pretty up! Nothing to do with the strain as that's awesome but due to the huge dinafem cheese XXL in there with her.

    [​IMG] Good afternoon all!
    @bushmasterar15 heres my final pic for the short stuff seeds star dawg. 83 days old today, not the prettiest but those buds are solid and smell like a fresh cut mango! Can’t wait to try her!
