TempleGrower's NextGenerationSeedCo's Autofem Extravaganza 2.0
Nov 29 - Well, either tomorrow or Sunday will be the big day.. for AK#2 at least. She has about 10% amber trichomes now so, choppity chop. Works out very well as my reserves are dwindling... They sure smell good though. Sweet vanilla, with very skunky undertones. Not much for your typical 'kush' scents but, maybe they'll come out during the cure. Or maybe not. I am a big fan of these skunky, 'afghani' type smells/tastes so, no complaints here. Will be moving my regular bastards into the big tent, and using the small tent for drying. Gonna be in use pretty well all of December I think... ? ? ?.
Speaking of my regular, homebred bastards, just wow. GB3 #1's cola is fucking massive. Like 2.5 inches wide already, and still has about 3-4 weeks left! Gonna be as big as my leg, lol. And absolutely covered in resin. The comparison pic there is Nov 21 vs Nov 29. So stoked on these... Zero problems whatsoever. They're growing like champs.
My little 'solo' cup grow is finally beginning to flower too! I can't tell what the sex is just yet, but the new growth is beginning to change so, won't be long now... ?.
Awesome TG, glad the problem is being fixed. Are you considering bud washing after harvest?
Dec 1 - Harvest complete for Afghani Kush #2. Nice pile of ganja. Trimming her took longer than anticipated, as is tradition, but what can ya do. More podcasts for me. Ended up with 218 wet grams (should be about 54 grams dry, assuming approximately 75% of the weight is lost due to water being removed), mayyybe 5-7 grams of trim, and a few yellowing fan leaves. Not huge but, I'm not complaining.. Oh, and a big Gobstopper-sized ball of scissor hash. It smells SO good. I've transferred all of my regular bastards into the large tent with the remaining 3 AKs, and set up my drying rack, heater, and humidifier in the small tent. It's dry AF here right now (like 25% RH) so the humidifier is going pretty good. Thank fuck for these Inkbird Temperature and Humidity controllers.
In some less good news, my Romulan Kush 'solo' cup grow has shown his true colours... big Ron Jeremy-style dick and balls just hanging there. A bit of a disappointment but, I actually don't know where I would have been able to finish it, being that I won't have any 12/12 after these other regular bastards finish off in 3-4 weeks. So whatever. It was a vigorous little guy, and I planted directly into soil, no soaking, no nothing. Sprouted in exactly 7 days and grew like a mofo so, I'll try again next grow. Not like I don't have more seeds... ?.
Delighted for ya bruv so jealous lol can't wait to harvest mine
Timber!!! Another one falls congrats on the harvest TG, looks like some good shit as usual mate
Nice Harvest Brother sorry about the balls lol
Tidy harvest there mate! That hash looks the bollocks?
Dec 10: It's not over yet... ?. Just a quick update on the harvests and what still to come. Chopped two plants so far and have ended up with just under a quarter pound so, that's okay. I guess. Saying 'quarter pound' makes it seem like more.. ha. Just over 100g... but it's tasty AF so, I'm happy. Still gotta bring down the other two so, plus the regular bastards, so I'll be okay. AK #1 has developed some very nice looking purples in her leaves - just the one though. So that's nice to look at. Be glad to get these ladies down in the next few days... I have the aphids under control now but the little mafks do not give up. I hate them. ?
Speaking of the regular bastards though, sweet mother of fuck are they NICE. Filling out now, all have hard as a rock buds absolutely covered with resin. So much resin that my fingers some away feeling oily, rather than sticky. It's amazing. And they smell like peppery, over-ripe, medicinal fruit. Mango/berry but real sickly sweet. I've opted to name the Glueberry #1 x Romulan Kush cross 'The Crystalline Entity' in lieu of her blanket of resin, and probable predisposition to destroy and consume all life (hopefully there are some Trek fans here so I don't just sound like a psycho... where you at ZN?!). They should be ready for the chop in 2ish weeks I think, maybe a bit less. I'm beyond stoked to give em a smoke.
Crystalline Entity #1
Crystalline Entity #2
Overall though, I'm looking forward to having this done and over with, as is tradition. Not nearly as stressful as the last grow-around but, I wanna get back to my photos, and one in particular: Mr. Jack Herer I believe she goes by.. ?. But of course, I've already started three new 'Mystery Autos' for my small tent so, gonna need that space back pretty quick here.
Looks so ready and ripe for the chop man, that's gonna be some tasty buds mate
Dec 29 - FINAL JOURNAL ENTRY - Well, here we are. The end of another era. Harvest is now complete for everything (Afghani Kush AND the regular bastards, now named after some very powerful villains from Star Trek: TNG and Voyager ?). The Afghani Kush is actually all dried and jarred up, with a total of 202g (7.2 oz). Not too shabby. Always would like more but, I'm happy with it. It's quite resinous, so it's pretty good bang for your buck, I have to say. They ran for a total of between ~90 and 112 days. After having cured now for varying amounts of time (as little as 1 and as many as 4 weeks), some really interesting scents are starting to present themselves - some toffee notes, very creamy sweet, like some sort of caramelized sugar.. hard to pin down but, quite nice. Effect-wise, it's quite strong - I found myself thinking 'Wow, I am friggin' ripped', and that doesn't happen very often... makes me hungry too so, that is great - one of the main reasons I grow is for stomach issues I have, and so appetite stimulation is important for me. I did end up with a few seeds on one of them however, so I must have missed some rogue males flowers somewhere... bastards. But, I'm running 2 of the progeny now so, we'll see if there was some inadvertent selfing going on. ?. They were quite stressed, humidity-wise so, I'm not too surprised.. All in all though, a very nice plant to grow, very resilient (took a beating from the bugs and basically no moisture in the air), smells great and very strong, but I'd like a heavier yielding version in the future if I did decide to run it again.
Afghani Kushes (pretend there are 2 more sets of jars... ? ? ?)
The regular bastards turned out exceptionally well - I am beyond happy with them. Extremely vigorous, extremely resinous, gorgeous colours, very fruity yet mentholy-medicinal smells, what more can you ask for? They're currently drying in the tent but, I can estimate dry weight fairly decently (after water weight is gone from drying, the buds are generally about 25% of the original weight; this is when I like to jar it [I weigh the largest bud as it will dry the slowest so, when it's ready I assume everything is]). Wet weight for these came out at 690.7g with 220g in trim so, estimated dry weight is 172g (6.1 oz) bud and 55g trim. Not bad for 2.5 weeks veg/~10.5 weeks flower. Looking very forward to giving these a go...

Thanks to everyone for following along - hopefully you learned a thing or two... I know I sure did! Onward we grow!
Amazing work man, thanks for sharing the grow with us mate, I know it takes a lot of effort to keep a diary like this. Itll be great resource for future members too
Fantastic TG! I'm drooling looking at all the flower wow!!
Congratz on the bountiful harvest
