I had my first grow of autoflower with new lights, however i made a few mistakes along the road.
I didnt use Micro bloom, so all leafs practicly died. About 4-5 weeks of time it practicly just died away without gaining much size, as i didnt know micro bloom should be used.
I have the latest 1½ week started the feeding with bloom.
I also have hung my lights at 2-3 times the height they should be, which i guess had an impact aswell
I think the buds are very small? And i would like your opinion on how long she has left?
How long i could feed her, so she hopefully could gain some more size before here life ends?
Thank you very much for your time reading all through all my troubles!
(I have attached pictures of the different small buds)
Flora series (i missed Flora Micro 4-5 weeks, because i was advised it wasnt needed) It is!
Practicly it stopped growing much from week 3 and all leafs started showing deficiensies (dieng)
Toke me about 3-5 weeks to diagnose the reason, and get the Micro delivered
The last 1½ week i added the Flora Micro, and she returned growing beautifully.
Indoor grow tent
Lights was hung 12-24" to high, but i use our own lightning system (Bridgelux SMD LED’s)
Carbon filter kit + fans
Humidifier (unfortunately no dehumidifier)
Thank you Jbum

the trichomes on the buds is the deciding factor for harvesting.
suggest you get a PH n PPM Meter set…online $20…essential to a good harvest.
Once the seed hatches, the time clock is ticking. Certain things have to happen at each growth stage for the best harvest. Suggest you checkout the free grow book on this site…and…look tru the daily topics for suggestions n hints for more better growing.
My Local store said Flora Gro & Flora Bloom was enough, however i diagnosed the problem, as my plant slowly died and stopped growing from week 3 (VEG). Now the Micro is added, its blooming really beautiful again.
Ofcurse the lights are 192 x 3 watt Bridgelux 3030 SMD. 3 Watt leds run at about 0.9W (With added 3000k for flower)
It is basicly a cheap alternative, to HLG quantum boards. Delivering about the same, at a budget price.
(Par also added)
4x2x5 feet (right now i use 1x200W, but i have 2 more comming up, then i will throw in 1 more 200W - Pots are about 15 Liters
A little of the progress shes making, getting beautiful and recovering from no neutriants.
Second plant also ran 2 weeks without Micro, is also growing like mad now.
Im kinda confused, she did run 4-5 weeks without nutes, and she should actually be finished now. However it seems like she has extended her life period? Hairs keep shooting and growing fatter and fatter?
