Damn! I seem to have fell behind! :smokin2:

I’m not much of an edible person anyways, so I prob won’t be buying any. I phoned our local dispensary the other day, and he said we’re about two weeks away from being able to get some concentrates, he said the vape pens will still be illegal but he said they’re working on it. I could care less about the vape pens, I’m just excited to be able to get some concentrates at ease! I mean, I always said support your local drug dealer, but shatter seems to be hard to come around. I must just be looking in all the wrong places lol

Day 58/day 25 flower.

Acapulco Gold auto - watered today with 1150ppm. Bud size have increased pretty nicely since last watering. Currently watering every 5 days.

Bluecheese auto - last feed was sunday and felt light today so gave her just water with some rezin and vitamins. Watering about every 3-4 days

Both plants are doing surprisingly well, saw a couple leaves with tip burn but that was from previous weeks and also its not spreading so looks to all be under control. Quite happy with how things are coming along, next 4 weeks will sure be interesting!

Day 62/ day 29 flower

I will be separating the post with bluecheese and acapulco on this one as I have some questions and would like to hear some opinions...one being @MrSauga autoflower specalist!

Acapulco Gold auto - fed her last night as well with 5 litres @ 1150ppm till runoff. There are a couple deficiencies but nothing too serious I dont think, may be a mag def? Also, looking at her underside and found some new bud growth from coming the bottom colas and started removing as they most likely will be popcorn buds so didnt want the plant to waste energy on those little buds.....not sure if this was wise as I am in week 4 of flower. Should I stop removing branches at this point?

Pics shown deficiencies and also where i removed some branches.

...........continued........

Bluecheese auto
Watered last night also with 1150ppm, roughly 5 litres every 3-4 days.
Smell is coming through nicely, lots of trichomes with 2nd level buds fattening up. Not too much else to report.

Didnt remove any leaves or branches as all budsites are nice and exposed to the light. Same question as above though, should i stop all removals now that shes 4 weeks in flower

Hi 780...
treat autos the same as photos. If you're doing any defol you do it a week before flip for photos or between 15-21 days for autos. Doing it a week before you flip gives the plant time to bounce back for a healthy start to flower. Anytime after that you want to tuck leaves and branches. The next option is to wait 21 days after the flip(photos) or after pistils are present on autos which represents when the stretch stops approximately.

Normally if I'm going to do a defol I'll remove all the lower branches after the stretch that won't make it to the canopy. I try and leave as many fans on as possible becasue as the plant nears it's end it starts to pull from the fans instead of the media which is why some growers see the normal fade. The more you leave on the less fade you have assuming you have fed the plant correctly throughout it's life.

I must have missed the growth of another branch off the bottom branch or it happened in this last week or so....if that happens past the stage as you mentioned then just leave it be? Even if its going to give me less than desirable buds?

One branch won't make a difference... in other words the plant will concentrate on the main colas for the most part. Leave her be. Some of that lower 'larf' has the best trich production. It may not be the best bud, but quality wise it's just fine :)

I guess i can mix it with the trim to make some butter or something.

Was playing around the cuttings and snipped the ends of the tips off and each leaf tip had liquid coming out from it....not sure if this is normal with all plants but i was pretty surprised.

You can take off the lower larfy buds anytime you want right up until harvest. I would leave the branches though. I've been delarfing all my plants this year and take off the lower buds every time the plant tries to grow one.

Or you might want to try leaving them on when you harvest the nice buds on top. Put them back in the tent for a week or two and keep feeding. They might firm up a bit. It's worked for me before, but not with every plant.

Good idea...my buddy did this as well and i think it worked out well too. Ill check trichomes closer to harvest time....typically the upper level buds will have more cloudy/amber than then lower buds?
I know this may work for lower buds but the lowest weakest most pathetic buds i dont have much hope for...like this little shit. Id have to grind her up and sniff it to get high

This ^. Light stress can appear without heat and vice versa.
I was thinking as im entering into week 4 flower they would want more light. Ill move it up 4 inches to 20" for acapulco and just add a lift for bluecheese since she seems to be fine with the current light distance.
