First Timer Getting Psyched Auto Blue Dream

Dude…. You are soooo close to having your own dried and cured weed.

Have you pulled any samples?

I usually pull a small bud, trim it with just my fingers and sit it out on a window sill to dry it out quickly. Then I find someone to sample it. I warn them it’s gonna taste not the best, but I’m just looking for effect at this point.

Ahh I have not but my wife would eagerly test it because she just ran out of stuff my buddy who is growing gave us :joy:. It won’t F her up if it’s not close will it?

@Newbie84 I think she will be pleasantly surprised.

3 hrs from 70 days old and getting ready to harvest. Trichomes are looking solid and the buds have fattened up all they are going to get to. 2 of the 3 girls ended up with deficiency issues due to my FFOF soil which I will not be using again. They did however produce some big frosty buds just not pretty leaves lol. The 3rd girl is amazing smelling and looking. I wish they weren’t autos so I could take a clone. The wife has also sampled all 3 plants, I took a small bud from each off the bottom and quick dried on top of my toaster oven.
Will post some updates with drying and curing, I have Grove bags coming for the curing. Also will post some weights once done to wrap my first grow up once it’s all done.

@Newbie84 Looks like some mighty fine buds you have there. Enjoy!





Harvest day has come and gone. 9 hrs of wet trimming for my first time I don’t think too bad ( 1hr break in middle to make dinner and stretch my back). 3 blue dream autos 71 days from start to finish all in 3 gallon pots. No idea what this will weigh out at but regardless it was a victory. I enjoyed it and fell in love with growing and cannot wait to do more, I will be a life long grower.
Thanks everyone who has helped me make it through this grow @NeoGroR @Darodguy @Docnraq @Spiney_norman @Newt @Retiredoldguy @beachglass I know there were tons more but all I could remember off top of my head after trimming for all day long :joy:. Grove bags will be here tomorrow so here’s hoping I keep the tent at 60/60 correctly for next few days. :crossed_fingers:

it is a job, takes me 4 hours per plant to harvest, hang and clean up…with smoke breaks of course

I have this same trim tray.

I like neon green was half the reason I got :joy: that and had lots of good reviews. It seemed to do the trick for sure.

@Newbie84 Great harvest, great grow! Does that tray have a screen in the bottom and a catch tray for the keif? Y’know, you can use that keif to make hash. I’m just sayin’… Sprinkling it into a joint or on the top of a bowl is another great way to use it. Enjoy! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yep and I’m actually about to take my trim out of freezer and run it over the screen shortly. :wink:



My pretty girl hanging, love the purples. Definitely going to be my showing off buds :joy: ( don’t mind my trimming if not perfect was first try)

When I harvest all at once or final harvest after a split harvest, I like using the grow room as a drying room because I have better control over the temp and RH. 60/60 is ideal as a goal but hardly ever possible. We just do the best we can. It should take about 10-14 days to dry…depending. About day ten I start checking the smallest larfy buds; if they snap off easily, then I keep going up until they stop snapping off and give a little. After a few you should get a feel for it.
Sometimes it takes a little longer before the main buds are dry enough to cure.

Yea im having tough time getting it to 60 degrees that’s crazy lol. I have an AC unit sucking cold air in ( same setup I use when plants are growing) but I’m consistent at 68ish degrees and 55-60% RH ( my humidifier is next to the fan that sucks the AC air in and I turn the humidifier on to suck in from humidifier as needed).

Yeah, that’s close enough. To preserve the terps and flavs you just want to go slow, no extra heat sources. It just may dry a little sooner is all.

Very impressive for the first grow!
Also impressive results in only 71 days.
What’s planned for the next run?

Thank you very much and I had lots of help on this group and spent a ton of time, effort and money to make sure these girls turned out good. I was shocked they finished as fast as they did but I’m not complaining because I’m looking forward to my next grow.

I’m still debating what ones I want to do for next grow. I’m doing 4 photos in 5 gallon rain science bags just haven’t figured out which 2 strains ( doing 2 and 2)
