Wow, how big can those autos get. I was thinking of trying them my next grow thanks to the cannabis fairy.
MSNL's description said they could get up to 39 inches (100cm). They are all over that now with the one in the back corner over 45 inches. They have also spread out to completely cover the chiller. Wish I could grow them outside.

You are dialed in my friend.
Thanks brother Pute... I'd be much further along but I felt guilty for not growing any of Goat & Monkey's gear he sends me so I started 6 photos.. found out due to light leaks I can't run 2 tents unless both are autos.. sent the 6 over to my partners place to run out and I'll get plenty of it..

From now on Pute, it's nothing but autos, learning more about training and creating a few of my own strains again.. autos are so much fun..

Hey whatsubgirl.. hehe. My dad still does that commercial when he calls me... wuz uuuuuuuuuuup.. too funny as he's 80 and is so cool..
Autos can get quite large... Lowryder #1 was not designed to get large and gave the autos a bad name when americans started growing them.. it was balcony weed designed purposely to stay below 2ft, balcony height wall is 3ft.. out of site plants to everyone.. the demand for bigger better brought out Lowrdery #2 with addition of Santa Maria.. and wow, a new base was born called Generation 2.. what most grow now..

I had a Blue Himilaya Auto get to over 4ft and pulled 3oz.. all in 65 days.

There is a trick to getting them to stretch upward a bit most wouldn't believe.. after transition to flowering begins like mine have at 30 days from seed. I flip my lights to 12/12 for a week to 10 days.. ya see, autos have photo periods lying dormant within and by doing this the plant does it's big stretch more pronounced IMHO and get a
nice size to them.. then I return to either 18/6 or 20/7. No matter what I always use a dark period.. even an auto needs this time to produce oils so I never run 24/0.

I do believe Carty has transplanted to bigger pots and even topped them.
I knew one guy who topped his and the plants produced real nice weights
I started these in 1gal orchid pots, they have LOTS of drain holes... this helps large roots get established and why I don't use felt pots in veg... you want to allow the plant to get established with larger roots vs air trimming them yet.

After plants show sex, usually week 3 or abouts.. I up pot to my tall 2gal felt pots.. I use this style because I can fit 6 in my tent.. If you want to run less plants, go 3gal. but always felt to flower so large roots reaching the edge get air trimmed creating feeder roots to form..

Training is all done and now we just watch them do what they do... plant #1
8 shoots plus main cola.jpg

#2.. and when plants are out, security must be tight.. so Mongo is on the watch lower right.. lol

Never gonna use Happy Frog again... gotta be a manure based soil because, my house smells like poo.. zip open a tent to check on things, peeeuuuwwweeeeee.. gross. got worse as it dried out each time and does so daily..
My bro Atilla grabbed the last 4 bags on his discount, his went up $5 to $20 a bag 1.5cu ft. not bad, he sold me 1.

Topped off the soil and then watered thru it.. smell is now masked pretty good.

My favorite Roots Organics is still not in stock at HTG.. they have a few but not the one I use..

so Ladybug got over half a 2cu ft bag of Happy Frog for all her outdoor plants... and my Oxypots.. I'm going to strip things down to just what I use to rock the 2 tents with autos.. KISS

thanx. I have a few auto seeds now in my collection now thanx to the cannabis fairy. I thought about letting some go crazy in one of my tents. I really wanted some dank smelling weed for my next grow but I may let the autos grow before I decide the dankest weed to plant. I want some good stinky smells in my selection. My first grow included GDP and GG#4 which were both a great weed buzz and have a real nice smell and taste wise but would be nice to have real stinky stuff to choose from too. Your plants look really nice. I love checking in on you 😊

I've never really tried topping autos bro.. it's a veg thing and takes to long to recover as the plant converts over to flowering.. photo periods I top at 2wks old if my veg program is killing it.. but with autos I just think you can increase you yields better with not topping them.. but that's me.

Let's see what Carty has in the closet under his Mars Hydro sponsored light... so Mr Rep for being a bit slow this week.

These plants are suffering from bad soil.. slow slow growth and I just hit them in the face with foods, lets see if I get any tip burn. this Happy Frog soil is not meant for containers is what i think..

Berserker Autos 36 days from seed, buds should be further along IMHO.. topped the soil off with Strawberry Fields but the damage has already been done.. have since picked up Stfawberry Fields and Atilla and I just went in on a pallet..
