    About 6 weeks since germ and still no flowers. I have a DF Critical Plus 2.0 that germ'd at the same time and has had flowers for about 3 weeks now, and a Sour Livers I started a week later that is flowering also.

    Anyone run into this with Mephisto seeds? overall she looks healthy and has a strong smell.

    Still no flowers but the smell is strong and the growth is pretty vigorous. 6 weeks from seed.

    That's a pretty big auto, i'd recommend flipping to 12/12 or you might end up with a gigantic mother plant.

    20180101_140401.jpg One week into 12/12 and preflowers are starting to appear. I don't think there's any doubt she's a photo. The odor is getting pretty strong too. A photo period Ripley s OG..this could be interesting.

    Whatever the differences between the two are, or aren't, she seems to be thriving now compared to 2 weeks ago.

    I had to move her out of the grow room as I have 3 autos on 24/0 in there. Reason for that is the light stops the temps from plummeting. My last grow was 24/0 also and it was very good. I had to move this girl into a closet with a single Platinum P300 but she will go under the 400 Watt COB in about 2 weeks when the autos are done. Here she is at 10 days into flower after 6 weeks in veg. Very strong smell and a very heavy feeder too. I think this one will be special. 20180105_122859.jpg

    You should take cuts off of her lowers, and keep the genetics around awhile. Did you contact mephisto about it?

    Personally I'd do some defoliation as well to get more light to budsites, I would also do some lollipopping, especially if taking clones of the lowers. It couldn't hurt.

    Just my 2 pennys.

    Plant looks heathly great job.

    Thanks for the suggestions regarding clippings but I'm not really set up for anything that ambitious. I like the idea of growing an auto for 9 weeks and then not doing anything until I'm close to running out. Photos tend to be a 4 month commitment and I travel quite a bit. It is a shame though. If it was possible to have a raised bed in my backyard I'd clone the hell out of this as I can tell already its going to be special. I might send a pic to Mephisto. I wonder if they would be receptive to something like that?
