Autos kindly do their own thing they flower anywhere between 4 to 7 weeks. If not already I would add a full dose of cal-mag on water day. Also feed the bloom nutes between 800 an1000 PPM for now on your auto’s.
First, sorry for your issues, but you’re in good hands and hopefully should be ok with the community guidance coupled with your vigilance.
Then I cracked the hell up, sorry. But, you’ll spend much less next time if most of the infrastructure is set now. Plus, figure that if those three ladies give you a solid 6 zips - the dispensary would have been at least 1,200 to 1,500, maybe more. Perhaps coupled with netting it down further next time, you’ll find a little relief framing it that way in your mind!!
I grow only for my wife and myself and occasionally, I can let an oz go to a family member. It took about a year to break even, investment wise, but now my smoke is basically free. Even when I have to purchase seeds and counting the cost of electricity, fertilizer etc., the cost is negligible. I live in a state where it is not legal so my options are limited to stealth growing or paying upwards of $300 an ounce for comparable quality on the street. I can sell a couple of ounces for $150 each and that covers the overhead for approx 3 or 4 full grows (8-12 oz or more).
I’m just the gardener for the wife’s smoke. If I can produce enough that she doesn’t go to the dispensary, this project should pay for itself within a year. The rest of the family is probably going to be on their own. lol
@Skippythemagnificent-1 PH is important in soil as it measures alkaline or acidity in your soil. Cannabis is very happy at 6.8. PPM is “parts per million” of “total dissolved solids” this tells us the nutrients, mobile and immobile that are actually in the soil. Yes, a PH pen and a TDS meter are necessary. Amazon has plenty and well within a strapped wallet budget. Learning ypur numbers and how to maintain them is a learned process. Study, ask questions and have a hell of a lot of fun with it. Happy growing!
