Auto GG on final leg, is this a normal result at week 7 of flower?

So I’m on day 70-75 from germ and day 49-53 of flower. Plant dimensions are 27-30 inch tall and 23-25 inches wide. There are 11-14 stretched bud sites that are 8-14 inches long. This plant is hurtling toward the finish. I am keeping an eye on trichs with loupe and am guessing harvest is no more than few weeks away. This is my first grow with Auto GG and coco medium. My question is:
Where does the current results I am seeing in plant and bud growth compare with general results for indoor coco grows, especially with cheap burple lights like mine?
I am pleased with my effort, feel good about my plant and have enjoyed learning…. BUT I don’t have enough experience to know if what I see is “standard,” “Good,” or if I “knocked it out of park,” and can trust same process for new grow I’m about to start. See pics.

Howdy @RexHerer really can’t tell anything under those lights. Need to take pictures with natural light or the flash on your phone. :blush:

I hear ya and appreciate that about light color. The color shouldn’t effect visual measurements, density, etc. though. I will post new pics of ya’ll think it’s required. I have a discreet grow so natural light color is a challenge. There’s one pic that looks more like blue/white color light. I messed with switches and phone and that one was probably the best.

I don’t know much, but Burple probably doesn’t do enough.

Can’t say anything under those lights.

But our eyes are developed to see under natural light. When I see pics like the above it’s almost like looking at negatives. I can make out what’s going on, I just couldn’t tell details. These old eyes need all the help they can.

Replace the Burple. Don’t go cheap on lighting and you’ll see improvement no matter what.


Here’s another from 1-1.5 weeks ago. I have adjusted nutes.
