Wedding cake auto, new hobby

This is my first attempt in growing cannabis. I have a vivosun 2x2 with sf1000 light. I am going to keep it simple for the first grow. Tomorrow will be day 28 from sprout. I think it looks healthy and where it should be at this point. I would appreciate all the feedback I can get. I am using 5 gal fabric pot with coco loco, worm castings, and gaia green 4-4-4. And I water with tap water which is a spring next to the house. Here are my pictures of it on day 7, 14, 24

Look right on track, and healthy. I usually get some ugly plants when I do autos. Here’s a gorilla glue auto at day 65. I find them difficult to grow compared to photos.

I bought the same tent and light and my auto outgrew the tent by week 7.

Hey @PurpMan1975, I’m curious how full your 2x2 tent is now? I had to move my plant out of my 2x2 veg tent at 6 weeks old yesterday.

Pretty full, I am going to have to move some seedlings out of the 4x2 for the rest of flower. I have 2 wedding cake autos in the 2x2. One is tall and skinny, the other is short and really bushy. I have been doing some lst to maximize but they are growing too big

Cool man. I only have a 2x2 veg tent and a 3x3 flower tent. I couldn’t flower more than 1 plant at a time because I LST and supercrop and they get super bushy. Here’s my last one.

Haven’t been doing much other than a little LST and water. Here they are at day 36

What light are you using for those 2?

I have 2 sf1000. I just use Photone to adjust height in order to achieve adequate DLI.

Moved into flower phase now. Another month and the first grow will be under my wing. I have had my share of oh F$&ks, but I feel it is a success so far.

An update is long over due. Both plants are still hanging on here, although it is amazing the vast difference between two plants from the same seed pack. It is day 64, one plant will get cut down next week and the other probably has at least 3 more weeks from what I see. Anxious but patient. No sense in coming this far and getting greedy. Tell me your thoughts?


Oh and I do need some help. My dry tent is set up and running to make sure it will hold. My question is I can only get the temp down to 67 day. Humidity is 57. Will this be OK. Not compromising the harvest?
