First Grow - 5x Girl Scout Cookies Auto.

And lastly but not least ... the pain in my arse!!! I’ve decided it’s not an auto. Seriously. I’ve seen photos before, this is definitely a photo, not an auto. The buds are hardly even forming - comparing the two strains side by side can you even compare? This plant is 1.2m tall for fucks sake ahahaha ... for a non Sativa strain; predominantly Indica (my favourite) this plant seems to be growing hella tall. Bud formation is very very slow. This can’t possibly be an auto, Barneys claims it’s done in no time... so why am I seeing nothing? :wall:bongsmilie

Plant #6 - Glue Gelato (Auto apparently:confused:)

I will yield anywhere between 30-50 grams from one GSC plant. Lets see how much you get

I'm not going to guarantee it, but you have better light.. Better light usually equals bigger and better buds.
someone told me not to guess what I’ll get in the final yield just simply because I’d be disappointed if I got under that. I don’t think I’d be disappointed either way, the same as you wouldn’t be ! But I’m sticking to my guess which is 2oz per plant. That’s only 56g per plant. I honestly think that’s a realistic and honestly not impossible guess!

Great approach to take. I always hope for an ounce, anything more is a bonus
hey man, do your plants stink? The smell was ok, till yesterday all of the sudden the smell went 40x stronger ....:o the smell is overpowering - delicious smells... but my god, do they smell. I can smell them without even opening the tent.

YES! Girl Scout Cookie is a very strong smelling strain. I laugh when I read the description on Seedsman b/c it says something like "If discretion is required, carbon filter is a must"...

It will be like the rest of the grow until harvest. Since you have five of them, it should be pretty stinky.

I have a 4'' exhaust fan and 4'' carbon filter. Sometimes I feel like I could use another one and I only grow 2-4 plants at a time usually..

I have a 4'' intake fan. You could probably use TWO 6'' exhaust fans and TWO 6'' carbon filters... I can't remember what you have, i'll read it and probably edit this portion.

As far as the Glue Gelato, that does seem pretty big for an auto. But, I had a Blue Dream that got almost 3 feet tall, when i had some trouble controlling temps and had 85-90 temps for like 3 weeks during a grow. She stretched like a MFer and took 90 days til harvest. Literally, it took 13 weeks.

If it was me, I'd probably TRY to find a way to bend it over as far as she would let me. Tie it down there and just let it keep going. This way you can even out the canopy a little more and maybe drop the lights a few inches??

Hate to disappoint but the glue gelato plant is going. I’m holding onto it till harvest and then it will be discretely removed from my property and placed in an undisclosed outside area to finish. Gorilla style. Weather is more than warm enough for it to finish. It’s not worth me keeping it in the tent, 1 plant vs 9 new? Easy decision. Plus, the GSC did better than I expected so just a lesson learnt.

That baby will take off and if it finishes, it will be some good smoke
we will see. Of course I’ll keep everyone updated... but I reckon I’ll be near harvest on my second grow before that glue gelato is even finished ahahaha

next grow is 9x wedding cheesecake..so won’t have this issue again as they’ll all finish around the same time

Nice, that should net you a lot of cheesecake!

I'm going with a staggered approach right now, raises/lowering plants as needed. I'm about to plant two germinated seeds right now. Another Strawberry Cheesecake Auto plus another Northern Lights auto. That will give me 8 plants in the tent with staggered harvests anywhere between 6 and 71 days. 3 GSC, 2 SCC, 2 NL and 1 Blue Dream

do you have a separate area to dry? I think if I had a separate drying area I would be more inclined to do a staggered approach like you!

Multiple phenotypes seems to be the norm for autos.
Here are the results from a Fastbuds GSC grow last year. All 5 were from a single seed pack.
#1 - 46" tall yielded 16oz first cut flower wet + 7oz sugar leaf trim and larf
#2 - 35" tall yielded 4oz first cut flower wet + 4oz sugar leaf trim and larf
#3 - 47" tall tall yielded 12oz first cut flower wet + 4oz sugar leaf trim and larf
#4 - 41" tall tall yielded 10.4oz first cut flower wet + 4oz sugar leaf trim and larf
#5 - 30" tall tall yielded 2.6oz first cut flower wet + 2.1oz sugar leaf trim and larf
Plant #1 was harvested week 9 while the others went in weeks 10 and 11.
Plants defoliated and ready for harvest

Not dried at all, I like to trim wet (all the weights were shown as wet). The plants were defoliated before processing the buds.
I didn't record dry weights in the grow diary I kept but I would guess a 1 to 3+ dry to wet ratio.
I've improved my lighting and nutrients since that grow and when I run them again I think there'll be a significant improvement.
