Another newbie grow! 😱 It's likely to be a rough road but you are more than welcome to ride along. Feel free to give advice or ask questions. When you ask yourself if this guy has a clue, the answer is,,, not yet. 
This grow journal is late in starting. I just flipped seven plants. 1- Cherry Pie, 1- La Confidential, 4- Gelato and 1-CBD Ratio 30-1.
Wish me luck.

So, this is what I have been able to accomplish watching YouTube vids and reading countless guides from more experienced growers.
This is actually day three of the flip.

First question. This girl is supposed to be a photo period plant but while still on veg light schedule she went into flower. This pic was taken the day before I changed the timing. There has been no interuptions, no problems with my timers or power supply. She is three months old just like the rest and no other plants show any sign of budding. She’s a CBD Ratio 30 - 1 strain (the only high cbd plant I have). @Holmes

Thanks. I did let them go a little long in veg. I was putting together another room for starting clones (why not jump in the deep end when just learning, right). It took longer than I figured but I finally took the cuttings just before changing the timers. It’s going to be thick in that room after the stretch.

Let me introduce “The Beast”.


She’s a Gelato.
You can see in the closet pic that my plants are all kinda trained to grow a little differently. I’m experimenting with shaping the structure to produce the best canopy.
She went well.
I topped her at two sets of nodes. She grew stronger than the other three Gelato and shaped like a square table top.

She has probably 30% more bud sites than the others as well.

Showing this many pistils before actually changing the lights schedule is a good sign in my book. Aggressive preflowers just means she’s ready to go.

Thanks. I just wish I’d found this forum earlier. I would have probably flipped them much sooner if I had.

Thanks @JaneQP. I’m like a kid on Christmas eve looking forward to seeing them covered with buds. The four Gelato were free seeds and after I read up on them I learned that they’re not exactly for beginners like me. I decided to try anyway. It was fairly difficult tuning in the right levels of nutrients. Before that there was a lot of leaf discoloration… They are forgiving once you get that lined out and keep a very regular watering schedule. They bounced back well.

Yep. I’m not about to relax until they finish out. From what I’ve read Gelatos are bad about going downhill in a very quick way if anything goes South. The seeds were free so even though their not “for beginners” I decided to give it a try.

@MoBilly I will have to look into that strain.

Hi there, there are some strains known collectively as semi autos, Lebanese is one. These are not ruderal auto crosses, they have a tendancy to enter flower regardless of light timing, but not always. The same mothers seed can produce some plants that have early flowering tendencies and other seeds that wont fliwer until you say so. Those look very happy :blush: nice grow!

Thanks @Cannabian. I was at a loss trying to figure this out. I was pretty sure it wasn’t my doing and autos, as was stated, tend to flower well before three months. I hope she does well. It’s the only plant I have that’s high cbd content. I plan to blend with the others to fine tune the effects to my needs.

Nice! Are you flipping the lights soon? Or still vegging the others ?
