Hi there!!!

A little while ago i began my first grow. Green crack growing in pro mix bx, using A

After quite a few mishaps she finally started vegging out, i topped her, I did lst. I put off switching her to flower due to my own lack of confidence. I made an account on a different website and i asked for opinions on if she was ready, to which i was told my girl was horridly unhealthy and i should cull her and try again. My heart disagreed. So I finally flushed her and then switched her to flower around 12/07/2020. I defoliated heavily after the first week of flower, and then defoliated heavily again last week because she bushed out again. Her clawed leaves have been with her since she was just a little plant, no amount of flushing has helped me fix that problem. But anyways, this is her now, at almost 5 weeks flower.

How do you think she looks? Any advice, criticism, or etc. is welcome.

Thank you!! It’s been quite the journey and I’m really happy she’s been as resilient as she’s been!

Yeah your doing great. keep it simple gardening doesn't need to be super complicated. When you are a beginner the most catastrophic errors happen when you overdo things. If you overwater its bad most common mistake. If you over feed them once again it's bad and a common mistake. I would keep doing exactly what you are doing now. You are transitioning into flowering and eventually you will want to increase your feedings and bloom boosters but when you do always try to go the organic route and do it very gently and slowly. Watch the color of the leaves and most importantly the tips of the leaves. if you start to see any dark brown or crispy on the very tips of the leaves you would need to stop feeding immediately. Its a gentle thing and once you have done it a few times you will be able to read your plant you will be able to tell when to give them more or back off. best of luck to you I will follow along! 👍

i have a tendency to underwater, usually not watering until my soil is drier than should be. I’m hoping to get better with that with experience. I know I’ve waited too long cause her leaves start drooping.
I’ve been using AN sensi line and some of their budding nutes. I do get random yellow leaves that i normally pluck off and her claws have been with her forever now.

I’ve had problems over the last few days with the humidity being too high so ive ordered a damp rid bucket in hopes of it helping out. 🤞🏻🤞🏻

Hey everybody!
Just an update!! I get random yellow leaves but I’m trying not to stress them as i don’t wanna risk over feeding. But aside from that I’m pretty happy with how she’s coming along. 🤞🏻🤞🏻For smooth sailing till the end.

Is that nanners I see on far right cola?

Yup she Deff hermied! I noticed while looking over the pics to this post when i first posted it.

I’ve been picking and plucking. No seed pockets have turned hard yet. I am hoping to harvest mid next week as trichomes are still pretty clear.

lordyyy only knows what i did to trigger it, although i have a feeling it’s due to having the pot on the ground, i have since elevated her on a couple of bucket lids, too little too late.

this is her yesterday, i almost harvested since I’m starting to see lots more nanners .

Because i am a noob hahaha!

It was not a clone, she was grown from seed.

I’m also growing in the northeast right now and temps outside the tent can drop pretty low at night. I have a heater and thermometer to keep it at about 70 in the tent but i know it struggles at night. I’m tryna take the blame for any mistakes i made before i just chalk it up to genetics.

The plants look great. If they herm that easy, the genetics suck imo.

Haha yayyy! I’m not a total screwup!!! Thank you for telling me she looks great, i really wanted to test my ability at LST.

Seeing her hermie definitely put a damper on me, almost chopped her up right then and there.

do you think I’m safe waiting another week before harvest?
