First Grow! - Gorilla Glue Auto by Growers Choice

Grow day 75, flower day 37.

This plant is extremely tall and most of the buds are at the top. Many have burned and I had to trim them off.

At this point, I am really wondering if I’ll get anything worth smoking from this plant. Does anyone have an opinion?

I’m fine cutting my loss and ending the grow now; I’m considering my first grows as learning experiences.

The last photo here is of my 2 other plants that I’m going outside (may move them into a tent).

I love the Grobo concept, but, one needs to choose strains wisely given the small space.

Thank you all for the ongoing advice! @Todd.grobo or @Stephen, what do you think?


Very personal decision for everyone

My rule of thumb has to do with experience
If ive never made it to harvest i want to see what it looks like along the way. Id keep it and learn from my photos

She could still produce an oz or 2. At the learning stage i always considered that fait trade off.

Where I am at now in my grows i would finish it out. Made it this far mise well get something for the effort put in.

All about trade off i guess.


Thank you. I’ve made it this far, so I agree, the experience will be good even of the product is not.


If its not smokeable stuff, search for @Bplatinum9 threads about recipes. Start low and see how it feels. I have a higher tolerance and require a lot of them to get the effect i want, that might just be a secret excuse to eat chocolate though. I’ll never tell. But they do work and its a great low dose way to find where your comfortable at

There are many additional health benefits to eating cannabis asides from the obvious, which is why its always smart to start slow


I do enjoy edibles from time to time; but I agree, it isn’t the same as dry vaping it. Making would be new for me and a good way to put what I end up getting to use. Thanks for the suggestions!

Grow day 79, flower day 41.

Still very tall and I continue to prune leaves on occasion and try to move things away from the light as much as possible. Fortunately, height growth is much slower now.

We’ll see where this grow ends up. My expectations are low, but you never know, I could be surprised.


In future grows, you may consider a smaller branch structure / number. Like 4 to 6 colas vs the 12 plus. To ensure strong bud density they need a lot more light than shes getting now.


I agree. Need to do better research next time. I also plan to go photo instead of auto.


Thats great news. I think youll enjoy the process more on photoperiods. They do as commanded. Hehe


I ended up killing the grow off today. I made it to the end of the schedule, but, the plant was just too big. Buds were very poor quality, so, I ended up composting the plant. The unit is all sterilized and ready for my next grow. Gonna do better research and pick something that won’t outgrow the unit. I’m also going with photo instead of auto so I have more control. My two outdoor plants are doing well and have begun to flower, so, I’ll at least have something to harvest in a couple months.

I sincerely appreciate the help with my first grow. Even though I didn’t get a final product, it was a good experience - and a good learning experience!


All I will say, that’s an awesome attitude to have! We all make mistakes. We all learn from those mistakes. We share us much as we can with everyone to help them not to make as many mistakes as we make!

I am happy to hear your growing photoperiod @420Bandit , let me know when its up and running with some leaves, I would like to keep an eye on it throughout your grow and help you get a harvest under your belt!


I appreciate it @Todd.grobo. I think I’ll start with something easier like Barney’s Farm Shiskaberry. I am out of town next week, so, will probably start it the week of September 6th. I plan to use the Grobo Start then transfer to the Grobo.

I’ve attached a couple photos of my two outdoor grows, both are Sweet Senzation by Sweet Seeds. I started these in the Grobo Start originally (along with a sunflower, LOL) and the little one nearly died twice as it kept pushing itself out of the coco pod. Other than watering them, I’ve just let them “do their thing” to see what happens.



So Jellious :roll_eyes:!:flushed:!:exploding_head:!:uk:!:wink:!!..

I wanted to share a few pictures of my Gorilla Glue #4 Auto at the same stage as your grow. I’m on day 66 of the grow and day 27/70 of the flowering stage. This is my second grow in the grobo, first auto flower. The only issues are from the start the plant has shown a deficiency cal/mag, I’m not an experienced grower but the leaves have shown rust-looking spots on them. Any recommendations would be appreciated.


If you want us to check everything in the unit please send an email to and we’ll take a peak. The plant overall looks healthy, but we can confirm everything good!


Looking good! Sent ya a reply.


I’d get rid of the bottom BS so the energy is not wasted on crap at the bottom and being outside the way you’re doing that I would chiropract my stems. Not now sorry never when it’s buding… Looking real nice…
One more question :question:… Do you move it indoors at night or leave it were it sets. because I’m getting a new home and I have a huge Deck and a boxed off garden shed garage and it’s nice and out of Flint Michigan. Only thing is. I’m moving right behind the police station of the small town. I’ll be down low for a minute to get the feel of how they except marijuana growing in their small town…
Even though I’m not breaking rule’s or law’s there’s still people saying no growing marijuana while I rent there house. But I believe I’ll be ok. I’ve got room for all my tents and air and humidifiers will all be in one room… No more basements… This basement has ferbed almost every grow and I don’t know why.

This home has not told me I couldn’t grow. But some of the homes we looked at said no growing marijuana

This is Gaia Green? I see your tips are browning… Is it too warm in your growbo? Other than that I don’t know much about growing with a growbo sorry…

Harvested my GG#4 Auto of my 2nd Grobo grow. Currently on day 5/5 drying in the Grobo.


Beauty, great job @Bigalxxx21
