Most Pitiful Harvest Award

If I don’t win that award for this then the completion is rigged I tell ya. :wink:

But seriously this has got to take the prize. It’s my first born, germinated way back on 3/30, it’s a Purple Kush Auto and I did absolutely EVERYTHING wrong to it for it’s entire life. But I also cut my teeth on her and I appreciate that.
The trichomes are cloudy/amber=80%/20% so it was time to put her out of her misery.
I washed the buds ( LOL, no real buds just some popcorn) and put them up to dry.
If I get 1 joint out of this girl and I actually catch a buzz I’ll be satisfied, actually I’m already satisfied with what I’ve learned from this one.

As you can see in the pics roots were my first target of destruction by overwatering and causing root rot on day one and on…, that’s where the mistakes started and they didn’t end but I won’t bore you with the details of all the carnage.
I have 9 more plants following, each one a little better off than their predecessor, a couple with colas actually taking shape.
Some pics of the root ball so to speak and the “buds” That came out of a 7 gal. bag, didn’t come close to getting root bound, lol.

I’ve seen several growers on their 3rd and 4th attempt before making it to harvest. I’ll still say congrats. Dry and cure her right… enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Yes I’m drying in one of those hanging weed dryer things with the fan and filter, it’s in a room that’s at around 58-60% RH and have grove bags for the cure.

I had a 5 plant harvest at 4 oz’s couple grows ago. Failure is often the precurser of mastery. Congrats on harvest. Fact is, not everyone can do this. Even with peeps holding their hands while they do it. You have shown you can hack it. Well done!
Enjoy your first homegrown, and good luck on your next harvest. You dropped seeds already right?

Dont fell bad! It sucks but does happen here and there. I lost half last season (Im outdoors) I lost my Banana kush and skittles to Caterpillars and my Bruce to white flies!!! I just tried to not freak out ( Which I did anyway) I was pissed!! But I just enjoyed the others and start over again next season. Try to figure out what you did wrong/If anything and try try again…Good Luck!!

That is gonna be a really fun plant to grow!! @Iamme


This was my only successful attempt at an auto. I had this idea I would grow them with photos to have a little extra every once in awhile…

I did not account for a learning curve or them to not like the same nutrient levels as photos….

I think this was attempt 3 and the last one I tried

I love your attitude, awesome mix of humor and humility- is that what they mean by “self-deprecating humor”? I think so. Rock on bro, you’re doing great!
