    DSC05119.jpg - Age:1-2 days Seeds sprout. 1 plant sprouts with 4 cotyledons!
    DSC05147.jpg - Age:7-8 days Mutated plant showing weird spiral structure
    DSC05151.jpg - Age: 7-8 days, other normal plant. 1 more not pictured
    DSC05195.jpg - Age: 15-16 days. 2 of 3 plants show female sex,
    DSC05243.jpg - Age: 19-20 days. Switched to 150 watt HPS. Whitefly problem, quickly dealt with (It attacked my mersh plants and killed them, snowryder showed good resistance and was left untouched)
    DSC05286 (1).jpg - Age: 25-26 days. One plant significantly taller than the rest, occurs some mild heat damage near top leaves.
    DSC05288.jpg - Age: 25-26 days. Different angle showing the beginnings of bud growth.

    DSC05400.jpg - Age:38-39 days
    DSC05411.jpg - Age:38-39 days. All 3 plants appear to be at slightly different stages of maturity, expecting to finish in 4-5 weeks.

    So what do you guys think so far?

    looks great man, I enjoy looking at the time line type pics, especially when they are all in one post...
    I can't believe how fast those things get ripe.

    Yes these autoflower started flowering after just 2 weeks from germination! it was insane, and they have matured so quickly.

    DSC05437.jpg - Age: 40-41 days
    DSC05421.jpg - Age: 40-41 days
    DSC05426.jpg - Age: 40-41 days. Cola on the 3rd plant (slowest maturation) is catching up, and crystals are beginning to appear.
    DSC05429.jpg - Age: 40-41 days
    DSC05432.jpg - Age: 40-41 days
    DSC05422.jpg - Age: 40-41 days
    DSC05434.jpg - Age: 40-41 days Trichomes are filling in nicely.
    DSC05428.jpg - Age: 40-41 days. The tallest plant is forming bud in a nonstandard way. It has no main cola per say, but it has a large chunk of budding up top in a hammer shape, and scattered buds along its branches.

    Hairs are beginning to turn from white to orange/red on the most mature plant (all same age, but maturation from autoflowering trait has progressed individually.). Expected ~4 weeks left till harvest.

    Harvest Time! I examined my plants trichomes using a 30-100x scope to determine that 50% of the heads were cloudy and 50% were amber. Thus I decided to harvest 1 of the plants. I am letting the other plants go for 1-4 more days. depending.

    DSC05551.jpg 59-60 days old. Tallest plant in back is harvested.
