Good afternoon Farmers.....hope all is growing well for everyone.....

DISCLAIMER- I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL CANNABIS GROWER. But I for sure enjoy growing and smoking and learning and if it comes to it, teaching about my experiences......I do what I do, with what I have, realistically.......Temps and RH are, for the most part, outside conditions ( CNY ), give or take what I can do, with the funds..........or lack there of anyhow......with that......

Ive been looking around the site for a lil bit, enjoying almost all who share, good, ugly, or bad....finally posted my first post i little while ago and decided to share a grow that hopefully helps anyone here, no joke, myself Definitely included......

Firstly.....shout out to @mace for this list that is worth its weight in gold....for sure a plus in getting a feel for what has/is going on with the plant.....

Second firstly.....PICTURES .....visualization is the next best thing from seeing the plant in person....

Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated.....!!!

Have u PH'r your water after leaving it out for a day? Does it get rid of contaminates well?

That's something I've been doing and adding microbes to the water but am not sure if I'm actually doing a good job ridding it of contaminates

It's been awhile since I've used my ph pen........I can't remember if it changes the ph, but the chlorine dissipates after awhile......lessens anyways......

Running city water and they seem to like it.......

Now that we're back on track, ( life sometimes happens....so I've been told anyways ) considering powering issues for 6 days, they're in decent condition I think.....

this is 4 weeks from flip today.....

Using the General Hydroponics Flora Trio series directions, plus a little extra cause they like it.....just fed today.....

The temp and humidity are surprisingly right on.....some phenotypes do not like my atmosphere.....thankfully, I have not had one that didn't in a little bit...

Good afternoon everyone.....after our little mishap, everything seems to be on track....

Gorilla Glue auto.....flowering pretty much the same as the others...minus a small new Fruity Pebbles that was ( I'm calling it flowering now ) added recently....

My friend gave me a clone of a fruity pebbles when I first started growing.....it turned out to have been mislabeled........

So now, I'm doing a Fruity Pebbles from clone......my clone, from a seed from Blimburn Seeds.....

The veg department didn't look too good a week and more ago....

Definitely an improvement from before I watered/fed.....I feed every watering.....................If ???? they need it....

20230525 143213

These were up-potted to cheeseball containers using my usual peat/perlite mix.....and of course, Mycos!!!

20230525 144222


Hope all are having a growful day.....

P.s. what are push notifications?

Thank you all for letting me watch your grows and implement them in my grow style......I hope I can reciprocate the growing knowledge!!

I'm not sure how to swap pictures around after a post.......so.......clarification is needed......

The red solos are rooting clones or seedlings......

The blue containers were transplanted from other solocup plants that were due for a " change " ........

Still learning navigating through here.....
Awesome place to have fun while learning......so I definitely appreciate it......negative, positive, neutral...........remembering names are not my strongest qualities.....thank you.....

Just fed all....takes a couple hours for me to thoroughly saturate the medium.......

One of my problems first starting out was watering...........I guess the nute ratio also.......I thought the plants we're weight-lifting......I was definitely over-giving them nutes too.........

Trial and error........reading.......always looking anything up.......still do......still am.........

Not much room in my veg area.....when they stretch more than normal ( this Sweet Tooth from Blimburn Seeds, my fault for the stretch), I train differently.......

Trying for a wrap-around-the-container method before going into a 5 gallon container........

51 days flowering...

Ran into problems right around the stretch period...lights were out for about a week...I was hoping they would slide through that blunder....

I stressed them out....big time...they did not like the time-out they had....found a cluster the other day...

Found out my light ( 400w HPS ) was burning the plants....raised it to 27"....

Fed yesterday...backed off a touch on the nutes....

20230620 135612


Still debating whether to start over....I have not noticed any other nanners between yesterday and 3 mins ago.....kinda bummed, but it could have been way worse...

After the adjustments, the new growth looks good.....improving? Maybe...worth it to continue? That is the question.....

Day 58 in flower....68 days from flip.....

Pulled a couple early plants because of some nanner clusters....that was a few days ago.....

Found some in the ones I'm leaving....

I'm letting these do their thing......seeded and all.....urghhhh....

By the looks of the remaining plants, they have at least 2 more weeks to go......

The changes of seasons have always made me struggle through my grows.....I'm closer than ever with the changes during my grows now.....

Obviously, I still need lots-o-work during and after the seasonal transition.....

Also, I will be running a scog/screen for my next run!!!!!! A true setup......not a trellis..........

Questions and/or comments definitely appreciated....even if I can not do as recommended, the knowledge for when I'm able to, is very valuable......

Cut them all down about 2 weeks ago.....my mistake cost me dearly.....

I ended up pulling 3lbs out of them.....ha...more like 3 ounces......

Truth be told, I should have pulled them way earlier and just started over....

It was inevitable that they would herm on me.....my Skywalker og was the last to visibly show nanners....that was the straw that broke my back.......

Soooooo........

Here is the start of my next adventure.....

Yes...2 autos on the black crate.....I have a lot to learn about autos.....these are bagseed autos.....

I want to run a net, but.....

Waiting patiently for a couple more veg plants to move into the flowering tent.....

I'll probably switch to 12/12 in about a month.....all dependent on how fast these grow.....
