SAFC Solar Systems: Fast Buds: Pineapple Express: 1st Autos!

Hey Growmies,

I will be growing auto flower seeds for the very first time! For this milestone I have selected Pineapple Express from Fast buds as SAFC was announced while I was watching the movie Pineapple Express 🙂 I will also be using rockwool cubes for the first time as well. I got the small seedling starter cubes that drop into the 6x6x6 groblocks. I'm hoping to have smaller plants than usual but more of them. I want to keep them small and bushy so I do not end up with foxtails because they grew directly into the lights like my NYGC.

Up up and away. So far 3 are up and about an inch or two tall where the other 2 are just about to break above ground. This will make 5 out of 5 for the first time in rockwool. Now they are under a small blurple led until large enough to move into tent.

Had to cut a second groblock to act as support to correct a crazy seedling from committing suicide.  Still 4 of 5. Or maybe 3 1/2 🤔

Day 4 out of state and worrying about the girls.  Luckily I put a camera in the res so I can see when I need to send someone to refill...hopefully she remembers what I taught her about using a ph pen!

Another update. Continue to feed 5.7-6.2 as my res swings over the 4 days it takes to empty at 3x hff/day. Dialed back EC a tad as I was noticing some burnt tips. Autos definitely have a "look to them" where you can easily tell one from a photo. Must be the ruderalis ?

The Pineapples are really starting look like pineapples! Smells super sweet with a hint of gasoline. Also added a new member to the tent. Cut from Berkshires unicorn sherbet!

Moved the groblock in order to take a better picture and check trics for cloudiness/amber. To my unwanted surprise a few of these little critters came scurrying out in the flood tray. 🙁 I quickly looked for any signs in the plants of which I could find none. I then dumped a gal of h2o2 in the flood tray and wiped clean. Hopefully that's all I find...oh, I did find a tiny spider as well but no webs. :/

Still waiting on that amber...I purchased some GH Ripen for the first time. I think I am going to give it a try for this last week or 2.

Girls are looking great!

Welp, I made a last minute decision to harvest based on traveling next weekend and most of the tops being more than ready. Had a good mix of cloudy and amber. Unfortunately due to a dense canopy some of the under canopy buds were not yet ripe. They were dense and well formed however they are very un ripe. I will press/wash these once dried. The tops were absolute rocks, one of the most dense buds I've ever grown. In the drying rack in basement which is stable around 66f and 53rh. Hopefully this is the sweet spot and 96RH outside wont cause mold. Fingers crossed :/
