    Hello everyone.
    Here is my heavy purple autoflower from single seed centre.

    She will be 8 weeks old in a few days.
    She is in a 3 gallon smart pot
    She is in coco/perlite.
    I have been feeding her GH nutrients.
    She has been growing under 2 300w bloomspect led lights.
    She was topped once at the 5th node, around week 3.
    So my question is, do the buds look to be on track for her age?
    Should the buds be bigger by now?

    Tell me what you think.
    How many more weeks should she go in your opinion?

    Its hard to determine how long she has to go, the best indicator is the trichomes (milky is when it is considered the most potent) use a scope of 30x or higher to get the best clarity or if you don't have a scope use the pistils as an indicator (when they start to turn inwards and turn a dark red). I am under the impression you are concerned about the size of her buds, I assure you they will thicken up later in the last couple weeks of flowering.Overall your plant looks amazing.

    Hope this helps.

    Im guessing its your lights. Are they actually 300w at the wall ?

    Cheapo leds are often much lower actual watts. False advertising.

    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes she has so many budsites.
    I was just concerned that with her being almost 8 weeks old.
    I was thinking the buds should be a little more denser I guess.

    I could really not fine much info on this strain.

    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes they say 300w but they are actually 130w to 140w.
    So thats why she is under 2 of them.

    You start counting flower weeks from when you first started seeing budsites all over the plant.

    Im guessing you started from when you popped the seed?

    Hello yes I am going from sprout to now.
    She is almost 8 weeks old.
    She is a autoflower, so she started flowering around week 5

    I would not be to concerned.The LEDs you have and the time its been in flower, it turned out great.
    I am also not well versed with the strain you are growing,but don't beat yourself up about the density of the buds they will thicken up and become denser just give it time.Although some strains have been known for having lighter buds.

    Happy growing .:bigjoint:

    Yeah, I definitively agree but don't just simply cut them down after five weeks rather check the trichomes to be certain with a scope. (recommend a 30x or higher for the best clarity).

    Oh I understand about looking at trichs and all for harvest.
    I just did not think a autoflower would go that long.
