First outdoor UK autoflower grow

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by ldmott, May 30, 2017.

  1. Yeah ive bent a few but they seem to untuck them selves ha ha. I really want to top one of my little ones but im scared not to sure how to do it. Im a but clueless on how to chop it all down and what to do with the trimmings really aswell. got any advice or a good place to read up?
  2. I wouldn't top autos mate. when it comes to harvest I give them water about 5 days before,
    let them dry out,
    Try and do it before sun up
    remove fan leaves,
    Then I take the branches off,
    Quick trim leaving cm or so close to buds,
    Then I go over again with more time and care and give them a close cut (catching all the close trim to use for oil or butter) get yourself some powder free latex gloves. Everyone seems to do it there own way but that works best for me,it mite be worth breaking bigger buds down so there's less chance of mold when drying. You've prob got a few weeks left lots of white pistils still and they've got a bit more swelling todo

  6. Can't see any rot mate, keep a close eye you should notice leaves dying rotting first and that should be epicentre. If your worried removing the odd fan leave won't be a problem at this stage just to improve airflow

  9. Most of mine are in 3-5 gal but the cheese has prob got another veg another 8 weeks, so I'm hoping for a tree when she's finished

    Any idea why mine could be taking so long?
    Ha ha could it be the weather cause they dont seem to be swelling to much at the moment. And yeah gave them just water the over day. Quite a bit to be honest i wasnt sure i was meant to have a bit of run off with coco.

    How much did you pull then?
  16. I thought so but there coming up to 12 weeks soon so i dont know ha ha.

  17. Best not to go by pistols as a guide to the plant being ready as some can get new ones near the end...the pistols are best used as a guide when to start checking trichomes.....only guide of when to chop to your liking is trichomes. That's my understanding anyway ha ha

  18. Yeah I will always check the trichomes but I still cant see any sort of change do they look cloudy or clear?
  19. I'm not sure I'm the best to advice and looking at your photos I'm finding it hard to tell...I still ask for advice on mine. only harvested 2 plants so far and have my 3rd almost done. what are you using to take the pics? It is really hard at first to tell the difference but it helped me looking at the pics of trichomes on grow weed easy and comparing....


    This is how close I take the shots
