SAFC Misfit Autos: Fastbuds Pineapple Express Auto
Hello again Everyone!
I’m growing in the Mephisto challenge as well so please check out my other journal. I will be growing two Pineapple Express Autos by Fastbuds and giving the product to a friend of mine with MS. I have grown this strain once before in an effort to find a strain that helps my friend. He found this strain to work extremely well as it gets him up and going to spend time being normal for a little while.
I’ll be growing in 3 gallon fabric pots using coco coir and Greenleaf Nutrients; Megacrop 2.0, Calmag Pro, Sweet Candy, and Bud Explosion. Depending on temperatures, I’ll be using 2- 55W Autocobs and possibly a 600W MH depending on temps in my garage. I use the 600 MH/HPS to grow through the winter and dump the heat into the tent from the cool tube rather than heating the tent with my oil heater.
Thanks for stopping in, I look forward to seeing your progress as well!
The PE are doing fine, at least one of them
is. The other not so much. Both plants started at the same time, same medium, same environment, and fertigation. One yellowed and stayed yellow, very stretchy. It’s almost like it doesn’t have enough chlorophyll. Anyway, she’s not turning around so she’s gone. The other is manifold trained and doing well going into her stretch. I supercropped the two mains this time so much easier to keep the canopy even.
I am now dealing with thrips for the first time. I thought the spotted leaves were a deficiency initially but most definitely not. Predator bugs and diatomaceous earth are what I’m using for this fight. As well, my PE auto did not autoflower so I’ve switched my lights to 12/12. She’s going to be a giant of a plant and I’m considering putting it in my greenhouse to finish. My only concerns are smell and theft.
I could be in for a world record of longest cannabis grow with this one. I vowed in the past that I would grow out any plant I could if I could keep it alive. This plant has potential to be really nice. She’s been well eaten by thrips but I think they’re pretty much done thanks to the predator bugs. It’s tough to tell in the pics but she has some fairly long colas and they are more oily than sticky with a beautiful, sweet tropical aroma. Had I figured out sooner that she was a photoperiod I would have taken some cuttings.
