    Just a tip for your next batch. I wouldn't use any mutes for at least the first 2 weeks. Autos are ultra sensitive to nutrients and anything you use should be 100% organic. I see a lot of people using the coco, I myself have never used it and always have amazing results. Never a yellow, wilting, or dry leaf. If you can find it. Coast of Maine platinum growers mix is the best product I've used to date. Never had a single issue with any plant I've ever grown throughout my 2 years of cycled cultivating. As for nutes I use primordial solutions rootamentary after the 2nd week of growth until the 5th week then switch to sea green along with true bloom until 9th or 10th week. The best thing about primordial solutions products is you can never over feed a plant. None of their products will ever burn your plant or stunt it. Although I still use only half of the recommended dosage per feeding because of how sensitive autos are. But a couple of your plants look great and seem to have bounced back perfectly.

    Little update. Half the ones you see (the buddier/smaller) are the Auto Blackberrys, the other half (larger/NOT MUCH THC showing yet) are the Auto Gorilla Glues, and I reckon they are putting more effort into fattening the buds and the THC is gonna come bursting out soon, what do you think to that thinking? I reckson they got another 2 weeks atleast, however the blackberrys are looking like less. The buds are all fluffy on the the glues, whereas the blackberrys are all RICH in THC/Gooey/getting ready for finishing soon I reckon. I got 1x auto northern lights sidding in middle between them, this appears to be taking it's time also and not much thc yet/buds fluffy (still more to go)

    Honest thoughts people? Advice on the THC matter with the glues etc.

    Thanks

    Your crop has definitely bounced back perfectly. You should max out your yields for the size of your plants. I wouldn't worry yourself too much about THC it will come it's inevitable. I've also learned too that when it comes to THC it's one of those quality over quantity things. I grew a black dog OG which was literally the frostiest plant I've ever seen in my entire life but the highest THC quality percentage was 18% but on the other hand I had a blue kush that was averagely frosty but had 23% THC. So don't worry yourself because all in all it comes down to quality not quantity and your plants look great and are on the right track to meet their full potential

    It's not the "thc not showing", it's the trichomes. And you can have super frosty trichome covered buds with low thc and buds without much in the way of frosty trichomes that are packed with thc. Don't go by looks alone on what the thc level is going to be.

    Nice info guys yet again! I started just giving water last night ie time to flush. Is this right? Or do I still give glues some nutes? I was thinking time for water to make taste best in next 2-3 weeks for glues and 1-2 weeks for blackberrys. What youz think?

    Also how long you think I got to go with

    1) blackberrys?
    2) glues

    Also nute question. Here's some blackberry crystal close ups

    Looks like you have 3+ weeks left from that pic, but it's hard to tell. And flushing is a myth. It won't help the flavor, the nutrients aren't stored in the buds. Give them more food to maximize your yield.

    3 Weeks even with the blackberrys or the glues mate? The blackberrys are more solid etc. The glues seem like they maybe got 3 weeks but I don't know about blackberrys I don't want to leave them past there peak thc.

    Best way to tell when they're ready is checking your trichomes under a magnifying glass. Once you notice your pistols are about 75% orange, start checking daily or every other day for those amber trichomes. You want to see at least 60-70% amber trichomes with the remaining trichomes being cloudy white. But never let them go too long when the trichomes are amber because at that point the THC starts to cannibalize itself. Also make sure you check over each individual plant because even though they're the same strain the will mature at different rates

    I had a jewellers loup but seem to have lost it, this was prefect for checking trichomes may neee to get another asap! I'm sure the blackberrys are getting there or atleast most of them are with a couple still further to go obviously. The glues seem no where near ready and probably are going to be another 2-3 weeks. I read up on flushing and a fair few people say you should defo flush for 1-3 weeks and two weeks is about best and it makes it taste nicer. I'm not sure I think I will give them all or atleast the glues more nutes for another week or two. What is your guys guess on potential yield here now looking at it so far? Bearing in mind some are pretty small but some could get bigger? I got 15x in total here what do you think chances of me getting 15 dry oz from this atleast? Please best educated guess? lol I'm dreaming

    See attached pic of leave from the smallest one. If you zoom in can see amber trichomes how long you think for this small one?

    Is say you be somewhere between 10-12 oz. The smaller plants are what's going to set you back but luckily you have 15 so you should be alright. And I would definitely lighten up on the nutes or completely cut them out the last 2 weeks. You'll have a better taste and smoke. You can tell if your plants still held onto nutrients when your budd is dried and cured and you smoke it. Your ash should be grayish white. If it's black you still have extra nutrients in your budd

    Can't tell from those small pictures. But when the majority of the pistils are turning you want to be watching the trichomes with a microscope or loupe. When the majority of the trichomes are cloudy with a small percentage turning amber it's time to harvest.

    Should I give the berrys anymore nutes and for how long? Pistols are starting to go brown but still lots of white ones. Trichomes are milky/clear.

    Any more nutes or just water from now?

    In my experience just water for the last 2-3 weeks. One of my buddy's does nutes until the last watering but it comes out with a dirty black ash and by the time your halfway through the joint you can taste an odd harsh flavor. But then again everyone uses different methods and will swear by them so it honestly comes down to preference.

    I'm fed my plants FF Cha Ching on the last 2 feedings and gave them molasses water @ 1tbs per gallon on the next watering just watered them don't know if they will get another Cha Ching feeding as they are close to being done. Will know more in up coming days. So yes I feed both plant and soil. The molasses also helps with salt build from ferts and is said to have many other benefits as well
