So…when should I trim her up again??
(Caution  On Trimming Too Much On [Autos] Read Above Info): (Being That Said, If I Had Her I Would Trim A Little At The Bottom If You Haven’t -And- A Small Amount Through It To Let Her Breath Some):

@SilverGrobo Awesome thanks so much!!
Day 76 Flowering Day 9/37… I can’t wait any longer it’s like I’m a little kid at Christmas !! 🪴:cherry_blossom:
Nice…I’ll be watching your grow. I started a BDA hydroponic in tent on 2/14 so I am a bit behind you. Mine seems really short & bushy. Waiting for her to stretch up a bit so I can decide whether to trim stuff from the bottom before she hits flower stage.
Blue Dream Fem not auto. Last day of late veg and I extended. Was disappointed in the height
Day 1 of flower getting taller
Day 15 of flower oops kinda tall
Day 34 need a taller Grobo
Day 36 stuff is burning at the top
Almost flush time. Lesson for me don’t extend. But it took 13 days and 2 seeds to germinate. At the time I didn’t know how to restart.
@DeeDub Awesome, keep me updated on yours too I’d like to see it! My next grow is gonna be a Bruce Banner so hoping I get a bigger plant.
@Fastapp69 Holy shit that thing is massive I wish my auto was bigger but oh well!
I’d recommend extending the flower time.
Also maybe try and bend some branches so they don’t touch the light and get burnt. I like to use metal hooks in the Grobo with some gardening wire. I hope this helps! Some people also physically bend the stalks in a technique called super cropping, this link might help: https://2fast4buds.com/news/benefits-of-super-cropping-autoflowering-cannabis-plants
@OrionsCeiling I am so tempted to do some LST but am so hesitant to do so in autos…which is all I grow due to space/time issues.
Any advise is appreciated…my BDA is still little but my WWA keeps stretching toward the light and I worry about burning. What is safe to do with auto when they are stretching high to the lights??
@QueenoftheGreen Here is my current girl…first BDA…now thinking I should not have topped as she seems to be bushy already…oh well…time will tell.
Aww…just saw that your plant was fem not auto just now…maybe time to change title so us auto growers don’t come to this thread accidentally…I still read a lot of threads cuz I luv the knowledge but just sayin…
@DeeDub Nice looking plant! No no mine is a Blue Dream Auto and I did top mine too… maybe why it’s bushy as well?
Super…glad to hear your girl is an auto as well…gives me some benchmark. I am a new grower and want to do some comparisons. Right now I have a single BDA in the tent but hope to do a same time grow in the Grobo in the future (my same time right now is a Zkittlez strain).
I’ll keep you posted on how my BDA girl (Raquel…because she is so beautiful) is doing. Looking forward to your progress…will give me good info as to whether I want to attempt BDA in Grobo.
@DeeDub Yupp this is my first grow EVER and chose the auto for ease of grow. I named her Gerda (Scandinavian name meaning Protector, Stronghold) and she was short and bushy and the named seemed fitting for her shape haha.
Gerda is a wunderbar name…it is also German. She should grow strong & proud! I am sticking to autos until my experience level matures. (I just honestly do not have the self control to not check on my plants obsessively so I know I would upset the light cycle that a photoperiod needs).
This was my first grow too. I check obsessively. Photograph obsessively. Not sure why I didn’t purchase the auto. Mine has just grown too tall. Other than that, I see no bad effects from the attention.
Sorry for the confusion I caused posting in an auto thread. I was only offering encouragement for the slow before the stretch.
@Fastapp69 No worries at all!! I saw you said yours wasn’t an Auto. I enjoy seeing all the grows!!🪴:four_leaf_clover:
I would extend flower a few more weeks and you might have too super crop and bent those colas to stop the burn
