    Okay so we’re on about day 56 from sprout, I haven’t seen her in three weeks so it was nice seeing some flowers starting, but about how far in does she look? Should I go get some Tiger bloom and feed or let her do her thang? Any opinions would be nice! Thank you

    Didn't receive enough sunlight or just a very low yielding phenotype?
    Very sticky plant, just not enough there...

    She didn’t have a lot of light during veg, but the last few weeks she’s had great light compared to before, almost tripled in size after going outdoors.

    I'm growing my second batch of THC bomb auto's right now actually. She does look relatively small, perhaps not enough light during veg? If outdoors, are there many plants and leaves keeping it in the shade and out of direct light? And in regards to fertilizer...if you do want to add a bloom booster, now would be the time to do it before it gets close to harvesting and wants a reduction in nutrients. But with the size of that plant and what I suspect is a lack of direct sunlight, be very careful not to give too much nutrients...apply at maybe 15-25% of full strength dose. More direct sunlight will help the plant process the nutrients and metabolize them into energy much more so than being in the shade. I'd also recommend getting a 30x microscope or jewelers loupe (scopes are better but loupes work).

    Thank you!! And yeah early veg I had to move the pots twice a day to get direct sunlight, but after moving to the new location she took off and tripled in size(28 inches right now) might just be due to its flower cycle but there aren’t too many shade trees, I picked a spot but where the sun will be least blocked all day, shes up in the mountains but gets good light. Pulled her over from the top as a light LST so she gets more light penetration.
    I now have to ask the forbidden question...yield? I understand she’s small but if you could give me a rough idea based off your prior grow id really appreciate it!!

    Ok awesome so it sounds like the whole light issue is solved, moving it twice a day sounds like it was a nightmare lol. The way that auto flowers go, it's likely that she will keep pushing out new leaves and stretching up higher and higher for another week or two. And well, it's tough to say because I grew mine in Deep Water Culture 5 gallon buckets, with yours being in soil, the best I could guest-imate would be in the neighborhood of 1oz or if you really maximize it then 2 ounces. But this could be totally off, it can be really tough to guage how big she is going to be by the time she is totally done stretching and everything as she isn't even in the full swing of bloom. How big is the pot that she is in? This will determine the yield more-so than anything else.

    From what i heard THC BOMB is a low yielder but very potent if grown correctly.

    Oh absolutely, because I was in hydro I did get average yields, but in deep water culture you expect above average. So I'd say that's pretty accurate. And has a fruity, sweet, delicious taste as well! And they also seem to be pretty stress tolerant.

    How dark does shday get? I saw she was rather purple on the picture shown when I bought the seeds. Should I expect this or just some nice frosted green?


    Well lads I’ll be sure to post more pictures when she’s harvested or when I see her next. I can’t wait to taste her and see the yeild!

    Yes I can't wait to see the end product, and soil tends to give them an even better flavor so you'll like that lol. And eh, I wouldn't expect any serious purpling, perhaps it getting chilly out at night might induce more purple, but I only got a little bit of purple here and there on the buds. Otherwise it was just bright green, frosty buds.

    I dealt with bomb seeds twice, my first order looked like Josef multicolored dreamcoat, completely unstable and never flowerd, I made a second order sent to there bank in jolly old londontown, I tracked my payment, it arrived but they said it did not and stole my mony, just plain kept it, I'm haveing the postmaster doing an investigation my payment was tracked arived, was cashed no beans, some of you probably love bomb so but all you want, but I warned you.

    Sorry about your beans my man, I ordered through seedsman and got my beans in 2 weeks in the US. I highly recommend them. Good service, good selection, good promotions (especially bitcoin). I like them a lot.

    Bomb seeds is legit. The thc bomb yields about as good as anything else. I didn't have low yields with it.

    The cherry bomb is nice.

    I haven't grown thier autos just photoperiod stuff. All was great smoke.

    Is that a photo or auto? If auto the lack of light is the problem. Autos need lots of light in the beginning.

    Not trying to be a horses ass but we’re in the autoflower forum, yea she’s a auto. Unfortunately for her, her dad doesn’t live in the sunniest place and had to move her twice a day so she’d get some light. But when I moved her to this spot she flourished. I’ll post pics in a second.

    This was her about 10 days old.[​IMG]
    9 days later

    Day 19(?)

    This was after 2 weeks in the spot she’s in now. Then the pictures up top are of her a week ago.

    Not all people look at what section a post is in. I click the new posts tab and go from there. A simple yes or no would've sufficed.

    I've grown a lot of of bomb gear but it's all been photoperiod as that's all they used to have then later got into autos.

    As far as autos I could give you some tips on how to grow autos.

    First and most important is light. Plenty of it. At least until the stretch is over.

    Next being plant straight to final pot. 3-5 gallons. 3 being the sweet spot.

    No flower nutes. Use veg from start to finish or at least until stretch is done. Flower nutes will quicken flower on autos.

    That's part of the problem with having a half billion different forums: everybody assumes a LOT.

    We have:
    • People posting hydroponics questions in the regular grow section.
    • People posting soil grows in the hydroponics section.
    • People talking about their LED's in the HPS threads and vice versa.
    It's to a point that about 90% of the forums should simply be deleted and everybody get hurled into one and have to explain themselves.
