Good to know
Day 10. Their roots were starting to grow through to the outside of the Jiffy pellet, so I decided to transplant without them having the 3rd set of cannabis leaves. Waiting on the humidifier. Trying different size pots just to see what happens. Pre-mixed and measured super soil grow from these folks. Being that this site says I can’t post a link, try looking up apotforpot
Week 2. Put the humidifier in place (@Osage Thanks for the link!). Keeping the tent around 45RH. So far, it’s using water at 1 gal per day. @Stephen I believe they have stopped starving for light? Thanks everyone for the help

Temp looks good you could bump rh up to 65, but where you’re at now is better than before
This change of living arrangement will certainly help out. When I have early stretch like that, I’ll bury the pod and plant deeper so the leaves are an inch above the growing medium. Basically bury the stem. Careful now with your watering. This isn’t hydro like the Grobo, so you want a wet/dry cycle. Let those roots go looking when it dries out and reward them when you water. You will soon realize how nice it is that the Grobo automatically does many of these chores for you. (Adjust pH, EC and water)
Week 3. I think I see white hairs on the Blueberry Kush but these old eyes aren’t up to snuff. Evidently, neither is the camera. I fed some Myco Chum today. Over the last 2 weeks, temp is averaging 74F, RH average 47%

I feel like that’s odd that your seeing white hairs already? I could be wrong though
@Russel_Richardson They are both Autoflowering fems. According to the breeders, they are supposed to enter the flower stage at 3-4 weeks. Harvest in 8-10 weeks from sprout. I should be tasting the crop by mid July If I don’t screw up. They do appear to need some type of motivation in the growth area as they’re only a couple inches tall
Week 4. Started some LST and swapped to the HPS bulb. Could you tell? Please let me know if I’m screwing up
Week 5. Blueberry Kush growing like a typical (so I’ve read) Indica, bushy and branching. Attempting the star pattern LST. The Green Crack doing the straight up Sativa thing. Leggy. Started the spiral LST.
Seems odd it’s flowering already no? Maybe it’s not but just seems super small
@Russel_Richardson It’s my understanding that Autoflowers only veg 3-4 weeks. I started seeing pistil’s at week 3
Yeah I’ve never grown autos so I wouldn’t know. Just compared to some autos that have been grown in the grobos ( I know there’s a difference here) they’ve just seemed bigger and more established before the flowering began
Careful with training autos they don’t like stress FYI
Just let em go, they’re autos, not much you can do to optimize your grow. Just genetics, water and nutrients! Forget training you’ll get less
@Wolf1 @Osage I appreciate your replies. I am a complete noob to growing cannabis and get my info surfing and reading. From what I’ve gleaned so far, the tie down method of LST I’m using will increase yield. If you can offer any evidence to the contrary, I’m all ears. My object being, as soon as I get more than the 1 main cola going, I’ll stop. With ~ 8 - 10 week of flowering, there’s not a whole lot of time to train anyway.
Once again, thank you for responding!
That is all true with photogenic strains but auto flowers don’t like that kind of stress/lst it will stunt the growth which will transfer to your end yield resulting in less of a yield but go ahead live and learn right?
Didn’t see this before I responded @Osage lol
