I can't even tell what I'm lookin at. No joke my first thought was Godzilla lol were any of those topped at all?
No these are autoflowers, I’ve done only LST and leaf tucking, but I do it twice a day, and start at the 4th to 5th node for the first bend besides that I just keep making sure the lower nodes are fully exposed to light until they get themselves up high enough I don’t have to touch them to stay exposed, after a few days they push up Quick and you can focus on the newer nodes and their lower nodes.

Just gotta be commited to getting the maximum amount of even nodes on the canopy, once flower starts I wait about 2 weeks about how long they stretch in preflower (in my experience, everything past that point is just main colas building higher), then remove any lower nodes or leaves and let those tops stack heavy, as far as autos go, after that you just keep them happy and fed and let them do their thing

Too cool and looks awesome. I've got beans for years but no Autos. Just a matter of time till I become too jealous and trip fall and buy me some hah. No way so many great growers would grow them if not worth it.

Photos are planned for the next run, that will be a lot of topping, growing out a cookies Kush seed from Barney’s farm, at about 3 nodes tall right now so a few more and first topping will start, that will be the mother, gunna Run all clones off her, it’s a fem seed but we’ll see when it shows sex, might keep an auto or 2 going for quick harvests though

Starting to see some slight yellow patches on the leaves. Haven't narrowed it down yet. Other than that they all seem to be growing fast. Any ideas???

I might be way off, but from a lot of pictures that I've seen it kind of looks a little like nitrogen deficiency. They have had Homegrown's seedling booster which has an NPK of 11-40-13. They had that six days ago and seemed to respond really well to it. Been watering at 6.3 PH. I did test the soil after watering and noticed that it was 6.8-6.9. Maybe that's the issue.

Well here are my girls on day 25. They survived an accidental double dose of nutes and a lengthy flush. I misted them with Foop mist 2 days ago and can really see an improvement. There is some residual discoloration on the leaves from the overfeeding, but the EC on the runoff was 0.7 with a PPM in 615-620 range. They really recovered better than I thought. All the growth nodes are starting to fill in with new growth. I hate lessons learned the hard way!! lol
