It's the plant at the back in the veg picture. It is taken on day 24 of veg.
The flowering pic is taken on day 11 of flower. It's the girl on the left.

Almost, but not really. They were topped and the lower node/nodes were removed, and then they've been trained to grow like a cross. They look almost like they've been mainlined. Mainlining require 2 or 3 toppings which I don't want to do on autos. With one topping, the plants can still grow massive. If I were to top them 2 more times, they would take longer to finish, and they might get small and yield less.
I'll take a couple of pics later so you can see how they've been trained and how they grow.

Day 58 of flowering
So, the Gorilla got to stay in the old house for a little while. I go there every 3 days to handle feeding and check on her.We've had some heat issues, and some leaves are discoloured, but I think she'll be alright. She's fattening up nicely.

This baby is pretty big, she'll give me a decent yield. The buds are massive!
However, she's full of white mildew, and today she got a good vinegar spraying. I might give her a dose of baking soda in a few days as well. I will definitely wash the buds when I harvest in about a weeks time.

Thank you. I'm still learning and try new things. I have some ideas I want to try for my next grows.
Yes, the gorilla doesn't like the heat at all. The Critical plant that was next to her was so much happier.
I think the yield will be great, but she's not as sticky as I'd like. I think that's due to the heat.

Yes, when I started to grow I had no idea different strains could behave so differently.

So, I accidentally harvested a gorilla branch today. I gave her another dose of apple cider vinegar and I had to move the branches around a lot when spraying. She's got twice as much space now after I harvested the Critical plant next to her, and not so much support from the tent walls, so the heavy buds show me that gravity works. I can't be bothered with yoyos or strings now when she's only got a week to go.
Anyway, this branch hung over at the wrong direction and snapped. Luckily it was just one of the smaller branches. I was going to cob the whole plant, but I think I'll just dry this branch. I will try a bud wash and see what that'll do. Off to buy baking soda and lemon juice now...

Day 68: She's been flushed for a week, and today she got a third spraying of vinegar to fight the white mildew. It's working and most of it is gone, but still a bit so more vinegar...
Going to buy buckets and more ingredients for washing the buds. I'm not keen on a gorilla that smells of vinegar.
