It is week 9. Six LED stand lights for plants with 4 tentacles Hydrofarm with CFL 65 W times six. The timing is on but being the first one a little advice never hurts.

My question is do the trichomes look like it’s ready to harvest from the pictures. It is Gelato Auto in the 9th week of flowering. I have six 65 watt CFL hanging lights plus six LED stand lights from Amazon that have four bendable lights to reach the lower areas to give light. I know they are clear and almost sure they still need a week or two. What is your opinion by the pictures??? The space is 5x10x7.

What other information is needed??? I hope for a good knowledgeable input. I know clear, cloudy and amber trichomes. Depending on if you want a body high, euphoric high or body and couch lock effect. Just an opinion on the trichomes and is it ready based on pics?

The lights are all new. Everything is because I am a beginner seeking help. That’s why I joined the community. Can anyone help?

So many people that know better than I do… but if you’re looking for a deeper high, I think you’ve got a couple of weeks left before icing them down and cranking down the lights. Get some amber trichomes into those lower buds.

Happy growing

Thank you Dale. So Autos are not always right on schedule then?

As I understand autos the time frames can very depending on a lot of factors. Training techniques, nutrients, light schedule, actual light the plants are taking in, PH throughout it the cycle, temp. Hydro or soil. Also when they say it’s a 10 week flower that can very depending on all the above and some more I’m sure. I don’t honestly think you can give a schedule for a plant unless you get the exact grow conditions that it was grown in to get that schedule. Keep checking them girls and when you harvest I’m sure it’ll be great.

So you would think two weeks out? Can, I just flush a week where I can catch the flower up, because I flushed a week or better already? I love learning. Not the fastest so patience appreciated.

They have pretty much been on a schedule. A vegetative of 18/6 and a 12/12 flowering period. The PH is great with peat moss mixture. It runs 6-7, but I am noticing here towards the end, it is more like 8 or high 7s. I am checking my water’s ph before watering and the PH I try to get is 6.3 but everyone knows how hard that is close but hard to be on the money, so it is 5.5-6.5 and I am happy. I think anyway? Open to constructive criticism to learn more. I am excited to be here with you guys.

I also topped the plants. I didn’t support them with SROG. I used steaks. Anything else I just had some Ice Cream. Lol

Why did you change your light cycle in an auto? Autos don’t need that change in light cycle. Give them girls more light. I honestly can’t answer questions on much of the ph ranges in soil. However, I believe if you are at this stage you are doing great and are going to be fine. I also don’t see any reason to flush during the life cycle of an auto unless you see signs of burn and in the last week before harvest. Also I think you need to know you are doing way more than I have done. My suggestions are solely based on research and I have put in countless hours researching a lot of topics. However I need to start honing in on some more specifics specially before I start my grow here within the next month fingers crossed. I just don’t want to come off as a know-it-all….I know in gardening I let my plants talk to me with what they need. So I also firmly believe in what works for you or me might not work for others! Happy growing have a great time and enjoy that ice cream might go spark uo myself!
