Blackberry Kush finishing up week 10 of her grow
Banana Kush Solo Cup Challenge, transplanted to 2 gal pot 1/1/20, still flowering
Tangerine Dream Auto Fem, transplanted to 3 gal pot 1/17/20
Alaskan Purple Auto Fem seedling born 2/7/20

In less than a month, Tangerine has passed the Blackberry Kush in height. I’ve moved the lights up as far as I can. She is still very bendy and pliant, however, she has just begun her pre-flower. I’m worried that she’ll go into shock and faint like some diva of the plant world if I bend her towards a corner of the tent.

I am not sure why, but I really enjoy that seedling sitting there with all of the flowering ladies haha. Where did you source your Blackberry Kush, if you do not mind the inquiry? Good luck with your grow! Positive vibes...

Thank you for the information! I believe that I have come across ILGM in some thread on a forum before. I tried to look around their website, but it must hate my computer haha. It just keeps reloading the page. Have you utilized ILGM for seeds before this purchase? I don't think I have ever purchased seeds from a website that wasn't breeder packs or direclty from the breeders themselves. I think I used Nirvana or something similar once when I was a kid haha. I "stole" my mother's credit card. I was just wondering who breeds the seeds for ILGM or any information about how reliable their information on their cultivars may be. Any Blackberry, Mango, Banana smells/flavors? Potent genetics? My apologies for hounding you with all of these questions. No worries if you do not know. I appreciate you either way friend! Positive vibes...

All stages very nice!

Desperate people do desperate things. Tangerine Dream Auto has been growing like a weed, which is great, except she was getting too close to my lights. So last night I decided to debunk the auto myth of being too fragile and girly to be mistreated and see if I could bend her slow and easy. Or fail. (What would MiM do?)

Naturally I pushed my luck and her main stem folded. I splinted it, tied her the way I had planned, had my first cry over a marijuana plant, and went to bed.

When I first started growing again 4 years ago I got some auto freebies with my seed order

and I not only topped them but I transplanted them several times

and they produced virtually the same as the photoperiod plants

They didn't seem to be bothered by the broken rules that I didn't know I had to follow!? ;)

On my very first grow i bent 2 of my 5 auto northern lights. I bent them a little at a time like i read when researching LST.

A folded stem will heal in to a knuckle. I pinch and bend them all the time now.

Mine either. I overwatered and then burned one bad. Patterns on the leaves resulted from micronute deficiency.

I flushed and she re grew leaves and flowered an extra month past estimate and gave 1/4 pound.

Hi all! Tangerine Dream looked really perky today and could hold her bent main stalk on her own, so I untied her and then moved her to the back of the tent to sprawl, with lots of room. It makes me so happy it worked out. So now it's ladies in the front, and the sprout, Alaska is in the back with plenty of light to grow. Blackberry will probably be harvested Sunday. Banana kush is getting super thick, like 3" wide. It's the first single main cola that I've grown. I'm not sure it's economical, however, she was a test dummy for the solo cup challenge and she'll still give me a harvest, and it was fun. Thanks all for solid advice from the first seedling here.
