Well the seeds are officially started.  Germinated for 48 hours and ended up with 1/4"+ tap roots on both seeds.  Into their forever home (5 gallon fabric pots of living soil) and coated with Dynomyco for good luck.  Light is set to 50"@75% for roughly 300umol.  Normally would run 40"@50% but trying to keep heat up as the heat is off in our house right now and basement a little cooler than normal.  Can't wait for these little ladies to sprout 🤞they both make it!

Were now 9 days from dropping the seeds in the earth and the girls are coming out nicely.  One set of leaves already, and have them 24"@75% with this light, hitting around 400 umol/s.  Still have all my veg garden starters in with them, so have the girls elevated on 5 gallon buckets so the veg doesn't get too much light. Everything in the tent is looking pretty happy!  Hoping for some big growth this week 🤞

Well it's 14 days from putting seed in soil and the plants look good. Just getting their third set of leaves, and seems like nodes are nice and tight. When watering making sure to keep water away from plant base, seems to be working so far. Just not used to such small plants in 5 gallon pots! Usually do more photo grows so just pot-up normally. Hoping for a good week ahead 🤞.

Well another week is gone by and things still seem to be going well.  No issues, plant #1 got it's 5th node and plant #2 is being a little slower only on its third node.  So I decided to top #1 and to some LST on #2. Will be like a little experiment to see which is more effective.  Also should give #2 time to catch up to #1 in height.  Can see sex on #1 already and is female so that's a bonus (seeds are fem just never know).

Up up and away! Both these girls are growing at a nice fast pace, doubled in size this week and looking pretty good. Was a little worried when had a small training accident and accidently gave #2 a heavy topping, but it didn't really seem to phase her and she just kept on trucking! So the experiment of training vs topping is no more hahaha. By the end of the week both plants big enough got ties on all the branches and really started stretching them out. Oh and it's gonna be the last week of veg, because by day 28 could see the start of flower! Can't believe we're a third of the way already. Also a topping on day 28 of All purpose and power bloom 50/50.

Well both girls are into flower, but #1 is easily a week ahead of #2. Haven't seen a lot of stretch in #1 yet but the flowering is coming on fast! #2 on the other hand is growing at a faster rate than before and looks like just starting flower so probably just beginning to stretch. Did work on the LST throughout the week, keeping the plants nice and flat as they grow. Now that they're widened out will let them gain some height. So far so good, genetics seem pretty stable, can't wait to see how things progress!

Well another week is past and wow the buds are really popping on these two! #1 is a full week ahead of #2 by the looks of her. #1 is 14" tall and #2 is about 18" tall. Both girls seem pretty happy, except for a tiny bit of tip burn because I let them get a bit too close to the light for a few days. Once that was corrected tips didn't get any worse. Adjusted some ties on #2 mid week, but #1 is gotten nice and solid and will no longer bend to training so she is in her final position. #2 will probably harden up this week as she gets ready to take on the bud weight.
I've said it already in this diary but wow this strain has been a LPT better and more fun to run than my first Auto attempt. Starting with such better genetics making all the difference. Also realising I could probably do 3 plants in 5 gallon, or maybe 4 if I go down to 3 gallon. See how big these girls get, but I'm thinking the stretch will only be another week at the rate buds are forming.

Also having the fully automated environment is making all the difference. Last run only fan was automated and humidifier just set and hope you got it right. Using an AC Infinity smart plug this time around (as well as controller 67 for their fans), now the RH doesn't vary by more than 1-2%, really helps me nail the VPD I'm aiming for.

Well another week has come and gone and these two beauties are really starting to fatten up! Even though #1 is short she is a stocky girl! 12" tall and I bet the buds end up being 8-10" long, they're just stacking so well. #2 is a good 6" taller, which I'm kind of surprised about since she is the one who accidently got a huge topping just before flower 🤦‍♂️. Still looking about a week behind but the buds are already really filling in. She is starting to show signs of calcium deficiency (pretty sure anyways) so I'm going to give them a good broad range foliar spray. Will hit them tonight right before lights out. I know it's not recommended by all to spray once in flower, but I picked up a fogger, so you can get much finer particles and it doesn't raise your humidity nearly as much as normally would. Also the fans will just ramp up and take care of any excess 👍. I realised that I forgot the basalt Rock dust on last top dressing, so probably the cause for the deficiency.
Speaking of top dressing the girls got their flower top dressing on Day 49 from Seed. Gaia Green All Purpose, Power Bloom, Basalt Rock Dust, and Superfly. Only 1/3 application of All Purpose but full amounts for others.

Another week has come and gone and I'm really starting to see why some people like autos. Can't believe it's only 56 days in and the buds are starting to frost already and the smell is really starting to build! Seems like it's just stay on the top feedings and make sure to water regularly and they do all the rest of the heavy lifting! Much less defoliation and training needed than photos, but then again plants are quite a bit smaller too. My wife sees them and goes "aww look how little and cute they are! Omg are those all buds?". Hahahahaha. Let's keep Slimer happy and fed so she doesn't escape the tent and terrorize us!

Happy growing all

Really not much to say this week. Still watering 3L every 3 days. Starting to see the buds swelling and the start of some colour. Some pic of this strain I've seen it can get really colourful! Let's keep on keeping on and hope the last few weeks go smooth 🤞.

Happy growing

Another week has slid by and Slimer is finally starting to show some colour in her leaves! Buds have been getting fatter, and the smell is starting to get nice and stinky. Very happy with how these two are looking. Probably only 2 weeks left, can't believe the end is in sight already! Top dressed (it's late but what the hell) on day 70 just to make sure they have any nutrients available if they need em.

Already can't wait to get another run of autos going

The end is near! #1 is starting to show reds (just 2-3 in some pics) so she will probably be ready before the end of the week. #2 is 90% cloudy 10% clear so maybe early next week. She did seem a week behind #1 from start of flower so no surprise, but who know she may sprint to the finish! When you open the tent you get a fruity/gas smell, makes me think of purple berries. I don't have the best nose though and am bad at describing smells, but it's delicious to say the least! Just keeping the environment locked in and hoping for a clean finish to this great grow.

Well this strain has totally changed my opinion on autoflower. Only my second auto run (first one was a disaster in every possible way) and I'll say it was nice and a fun grow! Just make sure your environment and watering is locked. Aside from an accidental topping of one (broke it 2 nodes from top 🤦‍♂️) there were no issues, and even the near disaster came back strong. Nice to have a full run done in 80 Days, and the buds were probably my fatest indoor ones yet!

As seen dwarfing the bic lighter in the pictures, and Rock solid with a nice grape/gas smell are the glorious buds produced by plant #1.  Plant #1 consisted of 8 massive buds with wet weight between 64-99 grams each!    Totaling in at 587 grams wet weight.  Possibly my largest buds I've gotten from indoor grows, but we shall see after the dry.

Plant #2 had more spaced out but still very dense buds, with it's smaller more plentiful buds had a slightly higher wet weight at 633 grams.

Will post final update after dry/cure
