Plant of the Month: June 2020 - Photo of the Month: April 2021
This will be my fourth grow, second auto based on results from my last auto grow. Those plants were fast at 9 weeks from sprout to chop with great quality and yield. Plan this time is no topping, no LST...first grow with no training. Upgraded from 3 to 5 gallon pots to increase yield. Dropped 4 seeds into distilled water Saturday October 3rd. I’m anxious to see these plants with central colas intact.

I pre-watered the four pots, 2 gallons total adjusted to 6.5 PH with 1 ml/gallon Superthrive. Watered pots upfront to increase RH for the seedlings. Covered all with small humidity domes. Lights 18/6 at 48”...will drop to 24” a few days after the seedlings are up.

Calling today Day 1, Saturday October 10. I have two up and can see a bit of the third. Ive had 100% germination my first three grows and was getting antsy on whether these would sprout at all. I soaked for three days, no tails visible, then planted all four. It took 3 days for the first to pop. I have one more seed as back up. Thanks for checking out my grow.

Yes! Green Crack Auto for the win!
SO, I hope the last 2 of 4 want to live. Third plant just noticed the bit peeking up was the root tip. First for me. I carefully excavated and pointed it down. Seed cap is still on...it may make it. No sign of the forth one yet. I have one more Green Crack auto seed I can drop and several Blueberry autos as a back up. That Godfather OG looks amazing over there. Sunny and about 62 here...leaves going full fall. Watching football outside to soak up the waning rays. Hope you weekend is going great.

I've found them like that. Can't remember how the outcome went. Not always good I'd presume.
It's a beauty here too, about the same now. Was like 75 earlier. We had a painting party with the kids. Got an entire apartments ceilings painted then had chili and cornbread on the deck. Ooh man the godfather og is almost ready, just another few days. YES!

6thsense, second auto grow...hope to learn more on fast grows. Very slow start compared to my first auto grow. This is supposed be a high yielder. Backup is the last Green Crack auto and a Blueberry auto. Feel free to jump in.

I’m in for the ride man and garden of green genetics Are strong with the two strains I’ve got going of theirs.
BCNZ...went with the Green Crack auto and batting 500 on the germination. Those Garden of Green seeds are on the very short list, glad to hear good things. Im open to any feedback on this second auto attempt.

Chili weather for sure...chili competition breaks out here football season...always a close call between my old school ground beef recipe and my wife’s dried chilis recipe. Hers is actually amazing with chucks of meat and no beans...the real deal.

Hash Fart...No, first auto grow was my last grow...it was impressive. I won those seeds and wanted to test the waters. 9 weeks from sprout to chop...wow. This second auto grow So far underwhelming. Will work to salvage but lost a week.

Bit of a slow start...50% germination. One plant never appeared but may not have had a tail after soak. The other grew with the root tip up...tried to reorient but she didn't make it. Good news the final Green Crack auto seed is soaking along with a freebie Blueberry fem auto and both have small tails today. Both will be almost a week behind the first two. Those two back up seeds will be planted later today. Ive never bothered with seed orientation but will be careful to plant tip up from what Ive seen online. @Sunnyskies this will be my first grow with two different strains. Little info on the Blueberry from the breeder other than 7-9 weeks flower, harvest 2.5 months from seed. THC unknown, should be high in CBD. No height info. The Green Crack is 9-10 weeks harvest from seedling. Fairly compatible cycles for both.
