Growing a blueberry auto in 5 gal smart pot with ffof soil/perlite. I have also been using the fox farm trio big bloom, grow big, an tiger bloom. It’s under a 480w mars hydro reflector. The buds are looking good an frosty. But the tricombs are still see through an it’s day 75. Is it normal for a auto to go for 11 or more weeks? I’ve made it this far don’t want to mess up now.

    I’ve read - and heard here a lot - that the auto timeline from the breeder is if the optimal conditions are met throughout the grow, and that it’s not necessarily what we as home growers should expect. I’ve also read and heard here that the blueberry strains are notoriously slow!

    Nooooooooooo....lmao. Notoriously slow?? Smh that was like a dagger to the heart. I’m so ready to see what this thing is going to smoke like. I feel like a kid at a toy store that can’t wait to unwrap an play with the toys

    Trying to get my ppms right - and my ph has been all over God’s creation and back. Luckily I’ve been blessed by some mentors who are helpimg me figure it out. They are having me move to Lucas formula and once I get my ppms in the right range tonight I’ll be babysitting my readings twice a day :wall:

    My light is a MaxBloom 400w x4 and is sitting 16” anove my babies and is on 25% beg and 10% bloom.

    My grow log is in my sig - feel free to check it out :-)
