How did we get from this to this?

Where did we go from outside the plant to inside the plant?
Because if I am not mistaken regardless of the origin of the NPK (organic or synthetic) this is the very bases of plant life. If you want to keep digging the hole I will keep point it out to you.
Because my original statement was that sugar is made and that is what attracts bugs.
I sort of incorrectly said that the enzymes make sugar which is not exactly correct, but more or less accurate.
My intent was to say that it doesn't matter which way you feed, sugar is made and that is what attracts the bugs.
I know what I was trying to communicate, but your insistence on 'correctness', caused me to search in areas I may not have before.
But, thank you because I now have a much better understanding of the processes involved.

Ok let's dial it back a bit here guys. We are all on the same team...nothing wrong with a healthy debate and sometimes we get heated but let's not derail the thread please.

Let's work to help this grower out and not have him feel intimidated.

Don't forget we do have an ignore function for situations where people can't work out thier differences

Sugars are inside the plant what you did say was this
All nutes attract bugs. The sugars that the enzymes make in the food is what attracts them.
I specifically am looking at the second sentence. "The sugars that the enzymes make in the food is what attracts them." This is what is wrong. Organics are different. You just casually stroll thru these threads and add your too cents which is your right but think about what was said before this and how someone else can take it. OH I BETTER NOT EVER GIVE MY PLANT SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS BECAUSE I WILL GET BUGS. I would just hate to see this get around. In Fact @Aquaman can you please delete this stuff because it is not good for the forum. See there is something that pops up on here about twice a month about Fox Farm Ocean Forests being too hot (meaning it has too much food for a seedling). At first I though well, they are probably manufacturing this stuff at several different locations. There are 2 in the USA. After a conversation with someone on here that uses their product from the east coast location without problems I realized it was the user and not the product because I have started countless plants in the stuff. The point being this is how bad information gets started.

Have you taken the time to look at my postings? How often do I freely admit I don't know something? Fairly often.
You have mis-characterized me as someone else. I don't like mis-information either, but I don't call people names when they do give it out. (Inference is the same as speaking it).

Look, I learn thru argument. I always have. I will continue to do so because that's where my best understanding comes from. It's natural for me to learn that way, despite what others may think it looks like. You do you, and I'll do me and if we disagree, that's fine. Lets just keep name calling out of it.

No one has called you any names s. If you want to give out miss information and feel that argue is a good way of learning I would feel really bad for your students. But you do you and I will do me.

I appreciate all the tips and help I can get, the oldest plant (organic swedish soil) anyway, she grows fast and looks healthy. I’m gonna try to replant one of the royal gorillas that gave me two plants from one seed. I’m planning to replant the smallest one and keep the one in the middle. I’ve really come to love taking care and watching the plants grow.

can’t believe I didn’t start doing this years ago. Do you think I should add something to the soil when the flowering starts? Should be around 3 weeks left. Best regards to everyone that taken their time to give some really valuable help. I really, really appreciate it. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

@Aqua Man is right, you guys really help me in my 1st Coco/perlite run. Just helping a newbie is hard sometimes, we all have different levels of gardening skills. Enjoy your grow @Maxiboy .

Okey! Should I move it it now? I planted about one week ago. Yeah I’m trying not no overwater. I’m using a spray bottle maybe every 3 days or when the soil is very dry. I have lights on 18 hours and 6 hours of shade but still with the fan running. Does the older plant look healthy? The plant tilted a little bit, not that much but I took a little soil and straightened the plant very carefully. I have the lamp about 30-40cm from the plant, I also have a reflector. I appreciate all the help and tips.
What you are doing is amazing work👍👍

A little update, the plant is growing extremely fast now. For about a week it more or less didn’t grow that much. I gave it some organic fertilizer and it started to grow very fast. The last 3 days it has grown more than last week. Anyway it looks quite healthy at least. Do you recommend me to tie down some branches in order to expose the plant so more light creating more sprouts? Best regards

I helped a friend to harvest last night, wanted some experience so I can do it myself later. Strain of the bud is gorilla glue. Extremely sticky.

You can start with LST now if you want. If you want to top or fimm, i'd wait another week then do it. Don't forget to let the soil dry out between waterings.

Here’s an update, she still looks healthy and grows fast. The smell is quite strong now. The flowering started about 7-8 days ago. Do you have any recommendations going forward? I still keep the same water schedule. Watering every 2-3 days and 20/4 light schedule. How long do you think until shes ready for harvest?

Don't spray them with anything.

Autos are not photoperid plants and are not run the same, do not transplant this causes stress and may cause them to dwarf, you sow your germanated bean 1 half inc deep in the pot you intend to do your whole grow in usaley a 3gal, use clay pebbles for good drainage, for food i use botanacare pro grow 1ml per USgal after 3 sets pour a small amount from jug to 16oz cup of water stir and feed but go light, use a good mix like fox farms add pearlite for airation and nitro, for flowering Atami Bloombastic same drill but go extra light, if autoflowers are in a good medium they need few nutes and autoflowers are notoriously easy to burn, this is star dog at day 60 had to cut cycle to induce flowering.
