Day 35-ish

The snail/slug attacks seem to have stopped completely now we have nematodes in place and working but Bob doesn't seem to be growing any more. I have a lemon pie that was given free with my buy that seems to be doing better than Bob. She's bigger and the leaves are "nicer" is that because she isn't a auto? Could the leaf damage stunt it this much or is this all normal and I should chill the fuck out?

It will of slowed down growth because it's starting to flower I believe, someone else will chime in though and confirm/correct this. It's my first season growing too, and have some autos in the garden around the same age maybe not as old as yours.

 

all the best

If I were you I would be getting some more seeds in soil asap to take advantage of the longer days and sunshine.


Not to put a downer on your efforts but the above advice is so you arent dissapointed come harvest time. 

 

If a plant doubles in size once it starts flowering, a six inch plant isnt going to make very much if ya get me. With autos its all about getting as big a structure as you can in the first 30 days, this is the framework that supports your flower developement.


Good luck mate

DAY 57.

There has been a recovery of sorts and it appears that auto has started to flower. Bob has frown and seems to be doing OK, my hopes for at least a gram are very positive at the moment.

I also want to note that there was another plant growing since 20/4 (yes i know) and is doing gods work. it is a Lemon Pie seed (DAY 44) that i got for free and expected nothing from it and look where we are now. this variety isn't a auto, just a fem and we have had some very hot days where the greenhouse hit 45 degrees with the doors open. and they seem to be lapping it up. its also starting to smell a bit in there so I'm taking that as another good sign.

Gents, I need some advice. Lemon has gotten big, I need to trim to keep it from taking over the greenhouse, now, don't get me wrong I love the fact that it seems to be a success, I just don't know where to remove from...

Read up on topping. You cut the node at the top whichll make it grow out rather than up. It's not quite that simple but isn't too difficult, best thing is to do some reading mate. Looking good

I wouldn't top an auto, it will just slow it down. 

They don't like being topped, because its already on a pre determined life span.

 

e2a, ahh its not an auto, is it?

crack on with the topping and ignore the old goit who never read the post

Day 70. Is it time to crop? Might give it another week? Trics are going brown so I might wait a bit till there all brown and more mature? She's really really sticky and quite smelly now. But only 30cm tall. Some advice would be grand, thanks.

Day 57 for lemon. 

 

She's getting bigger. Very big. Photo of me next to it for comparison, the greenhouse is getting crowded by one plant. Lol. Now we have had the summer solstice I am right in thinking that she "should" start veging?

 

Oh and the small tiny thing is gorrila glue. Day 7 I think. I'll probably start another diary at some point.

Is it showing any pistils yet? Little white hairs?  if not at that age id be inclined to think its not an auto

We are past the solstice which is the longest day, we have some way to go before the light hours reduce enough to induce flowering, which is what i think you meant, the plant so far has been Vegging, your waiting for it to flower/ hopefully already are otherwise its gonna be huge

Ok, I'm not going to panic quite yet. Major trim I think is in order. Where is it supposed to flower from? I'm struggling to find something consistent. I'll pop a photo in a minute of where I think it's coming from? I thought it was supposed to flower once it hits 12/12 cycle. It's not a auto either, it was a free seed from a purchase. Snoop Dogg lemon pie.
