That’s Awesome @vegetato and unfortunate! I’d really like to see some pics if you have them! I’m hoping the second plant makes it. I’ve check mine every day. Keeping my fingers crossed for both our plants .
I wanted to try some new stuff, document specifics and figure out what wasn’t possible for myself rather than taking a websites word for it. Growing bushes outdoors less than half a year isnt cutting it for me in the Midwest and it’s not nearly as fun (bugs are a lot of my outdoors issues). This prompted me to get indoors. Been reading a lot about “controversial” growing techniques like schwazzing, de-leafing, autos/not training them, micro grows, all types of interesting stuff and like everything else cannabis, you’ll find arguments made for and not. Only one way to really know and that’s doing it for yourself while following basic principals. Figured I’d share my experience with the community. Ive always foliar fed my cannabis and all other plants including indoor house plants . Watched YouTube videos of commercial growers successfully schwazzing so what the hell, game on for me. If I get an ounce from this auto and it’s decent quality I’ll consider it a win and I had fun doing it. I know for future grows what to remove and or not and how well this version of AK47 rebounded from aggressive training. This strain is far easier to train in-comparison to the slurricane.
I ended up buying a second small tent on the fly due to my mistakes staggering a few seeds into soil a weeks apart and not knowing this was an auto… Have a 3rd plant and some clones in which wasn’t anywhere near ready to flip growing in the other tent. Not reading the packaging to see that was an auto is my own stupidity. Growing pains… Imo it’s okay to not get an ideal yield out of one plant now that I have a rotation (the auto). Not sure what to expect from this one. The auto is really starting to make its push and catching up to the other plant which is atleast 2-3 weeks ahead of it and stacking fairly well so far only 2 weeks into flower, but still checking it everyday for sacks.
On a side note, this 8 cola manifold could fit inside the grobo. Train early and often. This one measures 13x13 fan leaf to fan leaf
Off topic, but I recently watched a Netflix program in regards to cannabis pros and industry insiders (trying to find it to share) and it was really interesting break down of the past few decades cannabis evolution and the “Boom” that’s taken place over the past few years. The short version of it is “cannabis is a booming shady industry controlled by evil mega corps now creating super THC by altering genetics” (que the ominous music) and highlight auto-seeds and how nobody truly knows what genetics they’re really getting at dispensaries. Interesting to hear professionals take on dispensaries, mega grow operations and the current state and future of cannabis regulation.
Glad you enjoyed the post. Got a new video in works and will get something up in the coming days
@markperron60 sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. Haven’t been checking AG nearly as often lately. If you send me a PM I get emails letting me know I have a message. Glad it worked out. Chris was right, cannabis has been growing just fine in lots of different conditions. Dialing in perfect temps is a losing battle. Getting in the ballpark is good enough.
