    I haven't had a whole lot of experience with growing, and it's been nearly a year since I've started up again.

    A few weeks ago I started some autofem Dutch Passion Think Different (3). They're in 5 gal buckets with approx 4 gal of Fox Farm soil each (Ocean Forest/LW 2:1 ratio)
    The 5 gal buckets seem a bit large for the veg cycle, but I'm hoping they take root into at least half of the soil volume before flower. Have about 95 gal of Sub's super soil ready to be used when they begin showing sex.

    They're under a 1000w mh with about 2.5/3ft of distance between the tops and the lens. They're 19-20 days old, and seem a bit underdeveloped for the conditions they're in. Originally, they were in a different (12 x 7) room of the house since germination for about 15 days, and I think much of the light was being wasted with so much space available, which may be the reason they aren't as big as I expected they'd be by now.

    Yesterday I put them in a white 4 x 8 greenhouse tent in hopes of gaining more light reflectivity. Just received a roll of mylar today and plan on coating the walls with it tomorrow. Currently waiting on a 747cfm vent fan to cool the light a bit more, but for now I have a large tripod fan on full blast, blowing air through the reflector hood. The temp. stays between 75-80 degrees F with a humidity level between 35 -45%. Currently Joining them in the tent are a Veneno, Super Lemon Haze, and Cheese:hump:. Oh yeah, the setup has passive intake, and I've got a small oscillating fan in one corner, but the tent isn't well exhausted except for the large fan blowing through the hood and out of the entrance.


    Any advice/feedback/possible explanations on anything I'm doing wrong would be much appreciated by this noob.

    Thank you:joint:

    I have 3 think differents grown in 2 gallons of soil.

    They are currently 70 days from seed and are looking great. I would say they have about 2 ounces per on them under a 1000 watt hps along with 8 other autos. They are taking longer then all the other autos however, the first one will be finished in two weeks but the other two will probably go another three weeks. Cheers.

    Today is day 29.

    One of the TD's started to show leaf curling 4 =[.JPG 4 =[ (2).JPG
    I'm not sure what's causing this, but was guessing over watering. Unless the plant is too far below the rim of the bucket. This one also had a fan leaf blade with an odd looking, sticky, bumpy texture. I wasn't sure what it was, and didn't find it normal so I pinched it off.

    Here are the other two TD 4 TD.JPG 4 TD 2 (2).JPG 4 TD 2 (3).JPG 4 TD 2 (4).JPG 4 TD 2.JPG

    The Super Lemon Haze is not looking very well, and I can't figure out what her deal is: 4 SLH.JPG 4 SLH (2).JPG


    I f.i.m.'d the Veneno two days ago and tried to pinch as close to 80% as I could 4 Veneno.JPG 4 Veneno (2).JPG

    She has a side branch that looks like something nibbled on it, or has missing growth 4 (15).JPG 4 (16).JPG

    I would start lsting as soon as possible, just seems to increase the yield for autoflowers instead of having one dominant bud. GL

    Recently noticed that one of the TD's was showing sex already, so I transplanted them all to the top of their containers with super soil and watered them heavily.
    They seemed to have recovered from the transplant pretty quickly, so I tied them all down along with the Veneno and tucked some fan leaves underneath some side branches.

    Hello everyone, this is day 70 for the three Think Differents and the Veneno.

    No 1 seems to stay pretty bad looking and is the worst looking think diff in my opinion. She seems to look healthier when I top her off with more soil. DSCN1793.JPG DSCN1794.JPG
    The Super Lemon Haze looks the worst out of the whole garden. Not sure if this would be a ph issue, or if I got tmv (if that even shows signs in cannabis). She's about 2 ft away from a 1000w hps DSCN1816.JPG DSCN1817.JPG DSCN1818.JPG DSCN1819.JPG DSCN1820.JPG DSCN1821.JPG DSCN1822.JPG DSCN1823.JPG
    Cheese autoflower. This one looks dark green and has some leaf twisting sometimes DSCN1824.JPG DSCN1825.JPG DSCN1826.JPG DSCN1827.JPG DSCN1828.JPG DSCN1829.JPG
    Veneno DSCN1831.JPG DSCN1832.JPG DSCN1833.JPG DSCN1834.JPG

    Think Diff No2. DSCN1835.JPG DSCN1836.JPG DSCN1837.JPG DSCN1838.JPG

    No 3. I snapped her main cola on accident about a week and a half ago :cuss: and did surgery with some double sided duct tape. Still looks like the cola is developing; I'm hoping I don't lose it or any of it's potency DSCN1839.JPG DSCN1840.JPG DSCN1842.JPG DSCN1843.JPG DSCN1844.JPG DSCN1845.JPG DSCN1846.JPG


    And some new TD's about 30 days old. The last is a white lavender DSCN1854.JPG DSCN1856.JPG DSCN1857.JPG DSCN1858.JPG

    Roger that. One of the new td's is in a 2gal pot. She'll probably be on the way to a bucket soon.

    Some TD's are nutrient sensitive. They can also be very heavy calcium eaters.
    Run em till they die around 80-90 days and you'll pull a good bit.
    They put on a LOT in the last couple weeks of growth, and I haven't harvested one at 75 days yet.
    It's ALWAYS 80-90 days.

    Peace.

    Absolutely.

    Color of trichomes is the best indicator, but run them until the fan leaves yellow and begin to fall off.
    I could have easily taken my last run to 100 days.

    Day 76 for the Thinks.

    #3: I was enjoying those nug shots. They're starting to add more weight and frost; I need to start examining trichs in the near future :weed: TD3 (2).JPG TD3 (3).JPG TD3 (4).JPG TD3 (5).JPG TD3 (6).JPG TD3.JPG


    #2 She's definitely the heaviest. Seems the more her fan leaves yellow up, the fatter her buds are becoming TD2 (2).JPG TD2 (3).JPG TD2.JPG


    #1 TD1 (2).JPG TD1.JPG


    Day 39 for the younger Thinks

    #4 Chained her into lst today Td4 (2).JPG Td4 (3).JPG Td4.JPG


    #5 Chained yesterday Td5 (2).JPG Td5.JPG
