Tangie blue auto day 43.
Looking great. Buds starting to get a touch of frost. Still an overpowering skunk smell and only getting stronger as she gets bigger. She seems to be really liking the megacrop.

Northern lights auto day 11 slow start but it was the same way the last time I grew one. 7 gal pot this time too so lots of room for her to stretch her legs. Hoping for a monster :)

Northern lights auto day 18, has started to make some progress. I figure it just took some time to spread her roots out in this 7gal pot. Nice bright green leaves praying hard to the ol sp250 I remember the last time I grew NL it was a brighter shade of green than the other plants in the tent with it.

Tangie blue auto (ppp) day 58 This girl is a heavy feeder, I'm giving 10g/gal of megacrop and she's loving it. Megacrop recommends slowly raising the amount just until you notice a bit of tip burn then back it off a bit. I've only just noticed the slightest yellowing of a couple tips. Rock hard buds still stank like skunk ass lol

Northern lights auto (seedsman) day 26 Slow growth but making steady progress and it was the same way last time I ran it. Shorty little thing but the stem is as thick as a pencil right to the top. No signs of showing sex yet but again it was the same way last time. Doing some leaf tucking to open up the lowers. Will do some lst once she gets a bit taller.

Tangie blue auto day 63 getting her swell on, still drinking like it going out of style. She's completely drying 1.5gal from a 7gal pot in 2-3 days!

Northern lights auto day 30 finally started showing sex but still throwing symmetrical nodes so still vegging yet. Got her first dose of megacrop 2 days ago and has shot up a bunch and spread out a bunch. Quickly on her way to becoming the monster plant I was hoping for. My plans to lst this NL has been stymied by the thickest stalk I've ever seen on a sub 10" tall plant.

That’s what I call a cabbage plant, I usually let them grow until they open up naturally. They are easy to split and break branches.
Yeah, I'm just going to let er rip, might do some bending once she starts to stretch.

Hey Knife :ciao: DOesnt lookin like it’s going to matter much that you can’t train it, lots of side-branching already by the looks. Hope it keeps vegging a bit longer for you.

The last time I grew one of these NL's it also started pretty small, vegged like twice as long as the other plants I had started at the same time, then when it hit its pre flower stretch it shot up like 2 feet. That was in a 5gal pot and I'm in 7s now. Excited to see what she looks like in another 30 days :)
that's a lot!
Yeah, she's a thirsty girl for sure, I almost feel like I can see her getting fatter as I watch lol

The structure of the last one looked way more sativa, long thin leaves, wider spaced nodes, lighter green color
That’s a beauty. I’d be so stoked to have that result w an auto :thumb: What system, we’re you running then?

That was straight promix hp with advanced nutrients ph perfect lineup and several of their add ons. In 5 gallon fabric pots.
Im in 7 gal nursery pots now but back to straight promix hp and megacrop. Same mars hydro sp-250 that Ive been rocking since last year.
I'm out of 420 kit soil and its still a bit chilly out in the shop at night to cook any more right now. Will give me a chance to give megacrop a good try. Looks good so far...‍

Tangie blue auto is 70 days old today
Looking fat and frosty. Seems to finally be slowing down on the drinking so likely a couple weeks left till chop. Trichomes are mostly cloudy with just the odd amber mixed in. Cant wait to get her in jars.

Northern lights auto day 37 starting to stretch in preparation for flowering. Seems to be a much lighter feeder than tangie blue as I'm only at 6g megacrop per gallon of water and she's starting to get some burned tips. Will back off to 5.5g/gal and see how she does. Either not much of an aroma to her or the skunky odor of tangie blue is overpowering her. Guess we'll find out in a week or two when Tangie comes down.
