Wish I started this thread sooner, but the grow is far from finished so it’s ok.
I started using marijuana when I was 17(28 now) and I always got my flower through the streets+friends.
Over the years I’d find a seed here and there in my baggies and I’d toss them in a a zip lock bag saying to myself “it would be cool to try to grow these one day”

Well that day came May 14th of this year. I had quite a lot of seeds and I didn’t want to be in over my head so I gifted more than half away. I chose what seemed to be 5 of the healthiest seeds and 3 days later:
14864AD6 9889 4A78 889D EF68693C70DD

My babies emerged and my excitement sky-rocketed.
Knowing I could possibly share the same flower I shared with friends years ago made me determined to get this done.
About 5 days later I had a healthy tap root from each one:
A96F0C08 772A 443C 810D A4EDDD7C5D9C

3 days after, I placed them in their first 1gal cloth pots:
2C3B6726 C6E6 4467 BB31 4012E662C830

Recommended by a friend who already had 1 grow under his belt I used roots organic original soil.

About 20 days later I had this:

Sorry if the video uploaded like shit.

Anyways the very next day I took a close look and I noticed something on one plant:
8A60FE73 EF2D 4B9A AD23 B2A85F0E93A4

Pistils! At this point I had read a decent amount and figured out this was an auto-flower! Super cool!

10 days after seeing my first pistils the plants were doing great still and growing nicely. So far they hadn’t been fed anything and only watered with Poland spring.(was nervous about tap at first)

It was time to be repotted into their final homes! Even not knowing the sex of 4/5 plants I went with 15 gal cloth pots(5 gal for the auto)man these are big!
I filled each pot with a combination of coast of Maine soil growers mix and coast of Maine lobster compost.

I also fed them lightly with roots organic uprising foundation, half strength.

Now we are in the present week this thread was created.
The plants reacted fine to the repotting I couldn’t see any signs of stress! so I decided to top all of them except the auto. They did not like that one bit and looking back I wish I fimmed instead.

A couple of them were drooping hard and I thought I had severely messed up but only a couple hours later it seemed they weren’t bothered at all.

2 days later I started a late LST on all of them except the auto:
2B6095A1 CD7F 45A6 9A3C 8C87B6B88E1C

This was yesterday and today I decided to feed them for their second time ever with a mix of roots organic foundation+ grow as a top dressing at half strength. For the autoflower I fed it roots organic grow+bloom also half strength (nervous about burn).

Welp, this is the grow so far. I will update this thread until we are all done!
This site/community has already helped me tremendously with information about these plants.
Thank you everyone who takes time to help those who need it.
Keep growing.

Well an hour after I post this I go outside to see this:

The dangers of an outside grow with no protections. Stupid bunny rabbit chomped on my auto flower 😭

Nice start. Autos are demanding. They suck up the the nutes quick when the flower stretch starts.

thank you, I think I’ll give the auto the full recommended dose on bloom nutes next feeding instead of halving it.
Any guess on how much longer the auto will be flowering for?

So today it finally stopped raining after 4-5 days of on/off rain. Some leaves took a beating, because of a giant oak tree that hangs above allowing droplets to gain size and weight pounding on my (hopefully) ladies.
Luckily having the branches cut down from it in 4 days since it drops acorns on the house all day. Yay that means more sunlight!

I did a bit more LST today and some slight defoliation. Placed some yellow sticky bug traps(might of went over board) and gave the photoperiods a nice neem oil spray.
Here’s the auto:

Strong suggestion,
I used Humboldts Secret full strength on autos , BAD Mistake.
Now I Use Nutes 1/2 strength on auto flowers , period .
There will be burn on the leaves if you start with more , you can always work your way up gradually.
Good Luck 🍀

Just a little update. Plants are growing great. Some minor pest damage on some leaves but it just seems unavoidable being outdoors in my location.
