Oh lord I'm running out of vertical space.
Samsquanch OG day 37.
Toothless alien and liverhaze day 36.
Forum stomper day 30.
Mango smiles day 29.
Just a few captioned shots of bud structure starting to form on the older autos. Small amounts of frost are starting to form. Don't expect much vertical growth from these, now they are generating bud mass.
Peace all.

So things that have surprised me so far this go around.
The liverhaze needed a book under it to raise it to canopy level.
The forum stomper behaves much like the mango smile. Hollow stems branchy as hell, sips nutes. Had a little bit of nitrogen clawing about a week ago on both.

Personal failings: I've not been as attentive on raising the lights or lowering the % brightness. More power than required makes your tops yellow and sickly. I need an accurate ppfd meter so I can calculate daily light intake. On 12/12 with a photoperiod I doubt they would have burned. But the same intensity for 18/6 is too much for them I see now.
Peace all.

Just defoliation of all subjects, placement of bamboo supports and soft ties. The forum stomper and mango smiles have been main stem supercropped 3 times each. 1 of these trained well would have filled my roughly 2x5ft floor space I've no doubt. We are getting into the fun part now smells are abundant, frost is forming, Oh it's all very exciting.
Peace all.

Just a little update: I've turned the lighting down to 120 watts across both boards. So we are running 2 boards at 60 watts each. Also changed the light schedule to 20 on 4 off. This is mostly due to colder temperatures of late.
Haven't dropped below 67f during night though. Lights on 70-75f humidity is always 60-65% little high for my liking, but I have very good airflow so I'm not concerned.
Gave the Sam OG and TA a good dose of 4ml per litre terra flores. 0.8ml per litre PK 13/14 same for calmag 0.8. always giving molasses 2/3 waterings to every plant. The MGS/LH/FS are generally getting 2-3 ml a litre and 0.5 of calmag or PK not both. Will be upping that as they gain more weight though. The mango smiles and forum stomper are frost monsters, and the terps are fantastic.
Mango smile 1# has the larger internodal distance. I'd describe it as heavy mango skunk.
Mango smile 2# the initially smaller squat plant has a more fruity sour expression.
Forum stomper, Frosty from top to bottom some nasty raw chem cookie but still a little fruity in the end.
Samsquanch OG, funky OG lemon body odor.
Toothless alien, white grape lemon interesting bud structure.

Photos just after a watering, they're slowing down the past week on drinking 1.5ltrs every 2.5-3 days. Mango smiles have some big colas forming. Liverhaze has been the only one that isn't very frosty. It's an F2 freebie, so there's alot of variation in F2 autoflowers. I'm just glad it was autoflower and not photoperiod in nature. That being said she's all white pistils still so we have plenty of time for maturing.
Peace all.

So my pH pen drifted a good bit by 0.4 this means my last few waterings were likely PH'd to 5.8-6.1 rather than 6.1-6.5 this has been corrected today and watered with 6.5 PH plain dechlorinated tap water. Bit of a rookie mistake on my part. IL have to calibrate more often in future.
Peace all

The pH fluctuating did some damage but we are back on course. Gonna add a week to finishing/ripening for my mess up.

I'm just thinking about what to do next. I have quite a few autos from Mephisto to run. 2 are set in stone though, Strawberry nuggets and jammy Dodgers. Strawberry nuggets is(sour strawberry kush from BOG x 24k pink pheno) at f3. The jammy Dodgers is (SN X forum stomper) at f3. Having never tasted or touched BOGS sour strawberry kush I'm intrigued. Then to cross it to forum stomper sounds nice too, Lots of choices to make.
Peace all.

Samsquanch OG day 69. Nice!
Toothless alien and liverhaze day 68.
Forum stomper day 62.
Mango smiles day 61.
We getting that fade now, last push for these ladies. I have really enjoyed this new type of growing with autos. I mean I was stressed they weren't going to stop going up. after they settled into the flowering it was easy going.
Peace all.

Well I vaped some small dried lowers tonight and I was rather impressed with the complexity of flavour. So far I've tried the forum stomper which had chocolate mint with funky taste and a fruity finish. Samsquanch has a really nice spicy melon with a lot of OG funk added. Toothless alien has a white grape and black pepper vibe with a dash of honey. Not tried the mango smile or liverhaze yet. The highs were all rather good for very fresh material spacey uplifting as you would expect. Had a real trip to the candy store with all the flavours I tasted.
Peace all.
