    So I got 2 free Afghan Kush Ryder seeds with my order so one flowered & I realised they were autos got nearly 2 oz off that one even tho it was pretty small, my issue is with the other one it’s been 2 months vege & 10 weeks flowering with the other photo fems in the tent & it looks no where near ready & now is dying in places. Iv pulled it out just in case it’s something the others could catch I’m only a week or 2 away from harvest & I don’t want to risk anything with the others. What the hell is wrong with It?? There hasn’t been many white pistills if any it is sticky & smells like it should but it’s just failing everywhere else

    If it's an autoflower it is at the end of it's lifespan, your leaves look burned, some of your fans have spotting, when was the last time you checked out your ph? It looks like you have been forcing bloom nutrients on it, or it has a deficiency, or it's dyeing of old age, your auto is now 130 days old, very very old for an autoflower, my guess is you had some sort of deficiency or should have checked your ph, or over fed bloom nutrients, or your plant is at the end of it's lifespan, yes I did run 1 auto 120 days, but it was starting to die when I finaly chopped.at least check your ph, and prune away those dead leaves, my real guess is you have been over feeding bloom nutrients or have them built up, check your ph I'll bet it's off.

    What color are the trichomes?...Nothing appears to be wrong with the plant in any way that will be detrimental to your other plants, unless she's a hermaphrodite or something. That plant appears to be finished, especially given its age, but trich color is always the determining factor in that regard. It could be a vast array of reasons that she has underperformed compared to the auto's you've grown in the past...an unstable phenotype...unfavorable environmental factors...etc etc. Don't let it get you down. Auto's can have temperamental genetics, but don't let it ruin your opinion of them! It's just as likely a reaction to something you've done as it is to be purely a result of unstable genetics.

    In my opinion, every grower should have either a microscope or jewelry loupe on hand...even if not for checking trichomes, then for checking when suspecting bugs and pests...but knowing the color of your trichs is priceless. I've had plants that I was so very sure were done until checking under the scope...it can prevent a lot of early harvesting.

    I have a jewellers loupe 40x hardly any trichs, I just think it’s done, iv done something but nothing I can nail down, ph has been steady 6-6.5, I’m not big on nutes & have kept to the same regime if not backing off coming into harvest, temps are ok just one of those things

    Well if all else fails, it was at least a learning experience. Try not to let it discourage ya from growing regardless of whether or not you decide to press on with autoflowering strains. Finding a good auto strain that is stable and good for your environment is a pretty big part of it as well. I got lucky with the first auto strains I picked just because they suited me well. Good luck buddy, keep it up.

    What are you growing in mate?
    Edit: I agree with Logan on genetics. If the auto seeds aint from Fastbuds or Memphisto, I aint growing it.

    I see plenty of frost on the pics you posted?

    My gut says they are white, and for whatever reason this plant did not perform, and she is near done.

    I have been repeatedly insulted peroneley, and repediatley for trying to help people, the 2 pics I uploaded is not weed, it is 2 strains of African violets, both plants are 38 years old, these are supposed to be one of the hardest plants to grow, last year my mother plant one first prize at the Connecticut African violets society, so I'm a fairy tale Gardner, I don't know oh from ppm, I don't know the diff between hst & lst, I'm a fool for only feeding my autos base, I'm a bigger fool for changing from full spec to full bloom, I had some seeds I have away beacuse they were not what I though they were, I promised them to tbe first person who sent me there info and I'm a man of my word, now I am being hassled by people begging for free seeds, but I'm the asshole beacuse they did not respond in time, no good seed goes unpunished, I am not helping anyone! I am going to finish my grow to prove to all the jackasses my methods work, I have never met a bunch of people who are just plain mean, and I don't want people like that finding fault with everything I do! I don't ask for help or beg, I have been running autos for 8 years and 7 days constantley, if by that time you can grow or you cant, I can!!!!!!!!!!!! Snoleperd

    Like I said I came here to help people, that's it just help people, they beg for help and when you try to be benevolent your a fairy tale Gardner, and now the person who begged for help is all of a sudden there the expert, the insults start and he can't grow crabgrass,I'm finishi6my grow to prove my method works, then I'm gone, as I said I don't need aprovel for what I grow, the smile on my friends face is enough.

    Snowleperd..
    Chill, I enjoy reading about your grow style.

    Keep in mind their is more than one way to skin a cat....( Pun intended)

    What I mean is you have some good techniques. Back in the late 80s I did some east window grows, with suppliment lights. My bag seed did not come out looking as nice as your grows.

    Me, now, I get down on synthetics, or just about anything out of a hydroshop bottle.

    Less is more, totally fine with not maximizing my yield, just after sticky tricome ladden buds with great flavor.
    Snowleperd, your grows look great!
    Peace

    All you can do is offer your help, if they reject it then it will have consequences for them, not you! Try not to let it get ya down bud.
