    Turned out to be about 92grams dry, not too shabby especially in 57 days.

    I have WW from Nirvana as well. I think I'll grab some autos my next seed purchase as I've never run them before. Well done. I have a shit load of FFOF I just got on clearance but I'm worried about using that straight cut with 25% perlite mix. I'm wondering if I get some coir to mix in if that will tame it a bit.

    I mixed a full bag of happy frog and full bag of FFOF and a bag of perlite and that seemed ok to me.

    I got three 1.5 cubic feet bags of FFOF for $50, but they didn't have any Happy Frog left. The closest store that sells FF is like 3 h
    I think I should be alright just running FFOF with added perlite so long as I don't feed them too much.

    I the the FFOF is $18.xx at my local hydro shop they rarely run out so I never buy more than I need at any one time.

    yeah the closest grow shop is 3 hours away so I stocked up on what they had at the store near me before they pulled it all.

    My next plant up for harvest. She yellowed out on me pretty bad but is still growing nicely. The buds are ROCK hard though. I am thinking maybe this weekend but i dont know for sure. One thing i am completely sure of is that nirvana white widow is a bad ass auto. 20161031_213321.jpg

    @MonkeyPickAss are you str8 ffof. Just smoked a bowl, read almost every post but couldn't remember. These guys talking about its too hot, i've done great in ffof, perlite, and lime. I also start feeding at day 18 to week or so before chop. Cal-mag is a must for me.

    Hi Monkey. Congratulations, your first grow looks good. What light schedule did you use? I've never grown autos and was thinking of giving them a try.

    They seem to work very well and they are cheap enough.

    Final two plants weighed in at 217.33g. I cant wait to start my next grow after the holidays. I am thinking about doing 9 photo strains 12/12 from seed and seeing how that works out for me.

    bovedas work pretty well, but they're more for maintaining rh than achieving it. I tried drying fairly wet product with them, and it didn't go well. Not much faster than just letting it dry naturally at first, then it went too quickly and almost stopped the cure. Much better to let it get close normally then throw in a boveda.
