1st Grow - Auto Purple Kush

Great roots and color. You will want to lollipop soon as all that undergrowth is taking a lot if energy. Cut all and leave good branches with the best cola sites

@Osage - I thought I should not lolipop on Auto’s? Worried this would stress her too much. She is growing crazy fast.

Oops missed that part, but you can. It’s just not advised. I know growers who do autos the same way as photoperiod :+1::v::joy:. If this is your first, just let her do her thing and you can adjust next grow :+1::v:

Yeah. That was kind of my plan with this first grow. All the other seeds I got are not Autos. So next grow, I plan on employing training methods

I figured this 1st grow, just see how it goes, since I don’t have tons of experience.

I still pruned/lollipoped my auto and it helped her focus on colas and n later flowers :+1:

Leave about a foot of canopy and you’ll be good to go- Only keep what is getting light. Bend top leaves out of the way that are blocking your colas tops from light :+1:

And I like the fact that you are confident in saying you are a new grower! This will undoubtedly help you learn quicker and become a better grower! Keep on keeping on :+1::v:

Day 51. I have done a little trimming underneath, given she is Auto, I did not take much. I will trim
some more today She is growing like crazy still. I’m worried getting to close to lights. Any suggestions, on making sure she does not get too close to lights?

I did not think Purple Kush, I would have height issues, supposed to be on shorter side I thought.

Otherwise, this has been a good first grow!!

I lollipopped my last grow, a GSC auto, and I wish I wouldn’t have, but lesson learned. She grew crazy fast! I probably trimmed too much, and the buds turned out fluffy, and not dense.

Have learned lots from my first grow. This auto got way too tall long story short. I will try non-auto next time for better growth control.

Harvested today, after going way over the recipe time.

Unable to drain unit, or enter dry mode. But at least Completed my 1st grow.

Will update in a week or so once its cured.

Problem right now is, my unit won’t drain, so I cant start my next grow.

Great haul- especially with first grow. I hope mine comes out similarly- although I plan to start with a non-Auto. Outside of grobo nutes & recharge- did you use anything else that you bought during the grow?

nice job & cant wait to hear about the smoke report.

That’s it. Recharge, and Hydroguard.

This auto got way too tall, and going a month over recipe time. I could have got much better yield, but other then clearing out dead leaves, I did no training, since it was auto.

The buds were literally growing up through top of case
