Right after I moved a second time, it's incredible how resilient they are. They were in black trash bags, in boxes for a few hours. The moving van REEKED. Luckily nobody was around at the time

This was just over 3 weeks ago

There is a reason it is called WEED!! 🥳😁

Glad they survived, it looks like a lot of LOVE was saved....

Thanks for the tip! I'm going to hit the hardware store and try that. And thank you! I hope they turn out healthy

Anyone have thoughts on revegging? I realized the auto was getting pretty close to maturing, so I turned the light back to 18/6.

Does it look like this one is continuing to flower, or is it revegging? I have no experience with this. I'll switch to 12/12 after I harvest to be safe

Trichomes on the main cola are mostly cloudy on the left plant

Thanks Farm!
Good Question... let me see if i can get a couple of other opinions here.

Hey @Aqua Man and @Kanzeon what is your opinion on the reveg question?

If its an auto you want it to get as much light as it will handle. Can be done 2 ways. Increase intensity for period of lights on or increase duration of lights on. I think 18/6 is a good place if you have lower lighting for autos. Afaik they wont reveg but I have never grown an auto.

Agreed on the cal/mag def. However, instead of upping the cal/mag try adding 10 or so uncoated aspirin to you next watering. 😎
I havent heard of using aspirin, thanks! I'll do some reading on it
Nice Picks of WW. I have just ordered 25 White Widow beans. I am not happy with this Crystal Meth's genetics so will be starting the WW early. I would be very interested to hear anything of note that you experienced during your grow. Since this is a new type for me, I am setting myself for the differences that always show up.

Thanks in advance 🍻😎
Thank you! I'm still new, but compared to my last (mostly unsuccessful) grow, these seem to have been feeding and drinking WAY heavier than the purple maroc. The girl on the right is going through over a gallon a day. Otherwise they seem to be generally resilient, I'm pretty inexperienced with training if you have any pointers with that? Defoliation etc. Lots of bud sites

Thank you for the kind words! I just couldn't bring myself to give up this time

Autos will never reveg, sadly. They'll die just the same as they would under no light or 24 hours of light.
I have a hunch that this one isn't actually an auto, it didn't start producing until I switched to 12/12. The actual auto was several weeks into flower before I realized the other one wasn't doing the same. Unless it's a really slow auto..

Then I suggest staying 12/12 and upping the intensity to what it can handle.

What lights are you using?

I'll try that, hopefully the other one finishes soon.

I'm using a Meijiu 240w quantum board, w/660nM epistars. I know these knockoff QBs can be a decisive su ject around here.. lol. Thank you for your help

Also, @AnselAdams, thank you for the tip on the aspirin. Holy cow!

Can you download light meter by my mobile tools dev and give a lux value? Would help us get an idea of intensity

Just looked, the big Mama is probably suffering light burn, switched the lights to 12/12. She is getting 200k lux at her canopy

The lefty is getting around 80-90k from what I could tell. Still progressing with the suspected Cal deficiency, going to try aspirin tomorrow. Also going to transition to flushing pretty soon I think

The seedlings look pretty happy, I put a fan on them to keep the air moving. I think they might have been getting a little warm. I was a little skeptical, but the CFLs seem to be doing nicely

Any critiques/comments/criticism welcome. Keep on keeping on Farm ❤

Youngins' are lookin good!
You may want to use a pipe cleaner to create a crook and give righty a little support until i grows a bit. If not the growth will cause the stem to snap. 🍻

Per @beluga's suggestion, I'm trying the "decapped" LEDs, these are 15.5w I believe. Came in at around 30k lux

Starting flush on one of the white widows, and trying to keep the other healthy until a scrogging.

Also trying aspirin now! It could be placebo, but the one on the right seems to be packing on the meat!

Starting to harvest one of them, and tried to scrog the other. Pretty excited to see how the other one does.

pretty excited to try and smoke, going to make some infused oil tonight

this is the main cola

Despite the background, I'm not doing this in a high school locker room lol

Decarboxylated some of the fresh trim in an instant pot, and mixed said trim with a glass of Wild Turkey bourbon. I slept great, gonna try again tonight..

From the info I find online, the best settings were high pressure for 1hr 50 min. No official way to test potency, but I'll do another "test" tonight. Also making some infused oil.

I put all of the bud in loosely fit quart jars, which kept the moisture in check. Also fit perfect in the 6qt instant pot. Forgot to take pictures..

Made some green dragon last night, it worked! Had a good night watching Airplane!

The one pictured is getting some kind of lockout I think, the EC keeps rising. Even if it's as low as 1000. Gonna read up on it

Some of the pistils are turning brown, which could be a deficiency I think? Ph is 5.9
