I know I’m in trouble for this one I’m slowly starting to cry everyday nothing new comes up but the growth is crazy I just know I won’t be topping this strain … and it’s been about 4 to 5 days tbh …

You could let her go for a little while longer and see if it recovers. If no vertical growth within the next week I would terminate and restart.

All my grows here have been autos, I’ve topped them all except the current one in grobo now. When you top them it has taken 9 days for some of them to start growing up vs out again. You still have almost another week before id worry. The topping definitely added a few weeks to my grows so far. I’d let it ride regardless just because I’m stubborn :grin:.

ayahuasca purple and pineapple chunk. I didnt really understand the purpose of autoflowering seeds when I bought a bunch at once. I just thought it meant less work to keep track of lighting timers. This is the first time I’m not topping one, and even still I slowed it down becauze I defoliated the heck out of it yesterday for the second time.

I have some auto packs as well not sure if I’ll ever pop them. I like to be more involved than they allow. Did a ton of research, bottom line, they’re finicky and you’ve got to leave them alone and let them do their thing. Super light defoliating, only take leaves when they look almost dead.

Yeah… and my ability to not tinker and try other methods is non existent. I still have 6 seeds left at least. I may freeze and save for next year, probably time for photo after this current indoor and outdoor run. I’ll have to try them out when I’m traveling a bunch and don’t have a ton of time to manipulate.

Agreed, I will most likely pop an auto when traveling becomes a thing again :joy:

I grow autos all the time. Just focus on the bottom and keep it clean throughout the rest rest of your grow and you will be happy. I’ve only topped an auto once and had mixed results. Good luck…
