    Default Berry Ryder Auto, Soil, CFL, LST

    I thought I'd upload a couple pics of my Berry Ryders, my 1st time growing them. This won't be a diary by any means, but I'll update now n again.

    The 1st was planted approx July 10, she is well in flower and smells deliciously citrus and fruity. She was left too long in my window and stretched her 1st few weeks. My cab is perpetual and one went waaaay longer than anticipated so there wasn't any room for her. I LST'd her about 4 weeks in and nearly broke a branch, taped it up and let it heal.

    Approx day 60:


    Bud Shot:

    The leaves smell unbelievably when touched, hoping the taste is just like it.

    The 2nd plant is much shorter, tighter between the nodes, and been showing flower about a week.
    2nd plant, on Day 24.


    I wasn't going to LST her because she is so short, but couldn't resist.


    I feed them BioBizz Bloom, started with a weak solution of about 3ml/litre working up to 5ml unless the leaves show deficiencies and

    Both of these have also been potted up. Anyone who says you can't LST or pot up Autos needs to look around a bit more.

    And please, don't tell me what lights are better or how your way of growing is superior - my cab is what it is and I'm well happy with the results.

    Check out my diaries and albums, I've been growing perpetual for 18mo or so out of this cab. I've only had one plant with a much longer flowering time than expected that messed the routine up a bit. Keeps me in supply and jonesing for a tent!

    Just make sure the bredder is reputable, look up diaries online, if there's an issue about non autoing, you'd know soon enough. I think I had one not auto out of 14 or so, not bad.

    Find a strain you think you'll like, and do research. I ordered 10 and grew 8 of the Gnomos, one seed I accidentally poached trying to warm the germinating area(stoner), one I pulled as it was a strange pheno, big huge fat leaves and growing like a triffid.
    One of the Auto BlueBerry are known to have/ have had hermie problems, gutting, but evidently unstable, I wouldn't buy that brand until they had that sorted out.
    I think I've decided on my next strain... but then I change my mind. Having a cab sux. I'm looking at a couple autos from Paradise Seeds, a few of the growers on here only grow them, swear by them. I'm also looking at some smaller breeders on SGS.
    I want a tent, lol.

    Day 27 pics, 2 days after the initial LST work and she is showing signs of recovery.


    I cut a few leaves that were blocking light from bud sites.

    Default Berry Ryder 1 Day 66 (aprox)

    Update on the 1st planted


    Bud shot:


    Lots of crystals, a lovely glisten on the leaves and calyxes. I've LST'd her into an even canopy, the top buds are further along in develpment, definitely a plant to harvest in stages.

    There is slight yellowing on a few leaves with darker stems, N deficiency perhaps. Temps have been a bit low in the evenings. I gave her a stronger feed, about 8ml BioBizz Bloom in 1 litre of water, mixed with 1 good teaspoon of molasses. I'm not concerned, most of the plant is healthy.

    Nice Chazrazz, I'll be updating my diary Monday, need a new SD card for my camera. The 1st one I LST'd I have plucked a few buds, very nice for early pickings, the rest will be done next week. Yield nothing like the Gnomo I've grown, thats for sure. I've lightly LSTd the 2nd one, thats the one I'll be keeping more of a diary on this thread.
    My 3rd plant is a baby Northern Blue Auto, 2 weeks in and it looks... like a 2 week old auto, lol.

    Default Day 62

    Sorry for lack of updates, didn't have a camera!
    I kept the LST minimal, the plant was rather small. Its now covered in crystals, the buds merging together in a row.

    There is a high calyx to leaf ratio on these.




    The smell is amazing off of the Berry Ryder, the smoke has a great taste.

    OK, that little row of diamonds shrunk to bits and was less than 1/2 oz. I was gutted. Sticky and sweet tasting, mediocre buzz.

    The last berry Ryder I have was planted October 15. I did no LST. So todays Nov 25 so we are on approx 45.


    Compared to the last one I LST'd to hell, I'd say the Berry Ryder doesn't like it. So even though this ones leaves are curling cos she's aobe the light, she still looks better yield wise than the LST'd one,

    Here's the cab with the Auto NL Blue LST'd beside her.



    Peace

    Size doesn't always matter bro and nice job,you can re-pot,lst and even top a auto as you quite rightly say,there just a auto flowering strain and are as versatile as a regular.

    I think some strains take to it better than others, the berry ryder just didn't perform well the 1st two I grew, yet in her natural state (albeit with side lighting) she seems to be doing well, nothing has changed otherwise in the grow.
    The Auto NL Blue is really nice, smell and smoke, can't wait til she's had a decent dry and cure!

    Default Day 48 baby Bud porn!

    Here she is, coming along nicely, much better than the ones I LST'd for sure.


    I turn her around 180 degrees every few days.


    The top of the plant is about an inch from the top of the cab. Much of the leaves are above the light and have curled a bit.


    I didn't take it out of the cab so I took Close ups of the easiest buds to photograph. Mid height bud:


    Lower bud:


    The Berry Ryders are really resinous and sticky, every leaf will have trichs on it, and even the bottom of some leaves on this one, I assume because the light is below them.

    I've trimmed the fan leaves, and some leaves have been singed to I cut those off too.

    The cola is very nice, my CFL needs replacing so it's not as dense as it could be, let alone if it were under a LED or HPS!

    Thanks for checking in!

    She's looking very nice, fattening up along the main cola and super sticky.
