That looks like damage from some kind of caterpiller or slugs.

 

That looks like a tiny egg of some other creature on the underside of that leaf.

 

Spray with Neem Oil solution to deter those pests.  Both sides of leaves.

You need to cut of those bottom leafs and branches and add more soil, cus they wont yield much anyway but can cause the entire plant to grow moldy. Top buds will compensate the loss. And spray those bugs, if you dont have Neem oil, boil chilly peppers and use the liquid, garlic water, make ness cafe 1g/l. It could give 100 grams maybe more.

its autoflower so i understood that its not advised to touch it because it will stress out ! and now it began flowering i want it to do it fast and good!

 

why would i need more soil? the roots wont go up right?

 

and i dont think its bugs i think its birds! what can i do against them

Mesh fence cage, dense  enough to hold sparrows off.

hi mate,

the guy that said to prune the bottom of your plant is right. Watch the greenhouse videos. It gives better air circulation around the bottom of the plant, and helps to prevent insects crawling up the plant. The main reason I do it is as the guy said these buds get little light, and by pruning them, all the growth goes to top, where there is more intense light.    opps, I am an indoor grower, that does not apply to you as you grow outside, but I think it is still a good idea.

Here people put a netting over their plants to prevent fruit bats and other birds from getting to their fruit.  

your plant looks very happy; yield depends a lot on strain. most autos yield between 60 grams and up.

all the best,

john

i dont think ill get a cage or a net because since then there is no problems!

i put inside 1.5l fret for 1l because its autoflowering but i have no idea what week to give and which amount !

Never before heard of birds attacking cannabis, but I guess it's not impossible. 

Sparrows?  Unlikely, except if they wanted to eat the seeds, but your plants arent so far along yet.

 

Now ducks or geese or chickens, that's a different matter.  I imagine those birds could easily make short work of a cannabis plant.

 

By the way, an autoflower is not disturbed by removing lower leaves.  In fact, the removal of lower leaves and shaded, unproductive lower branches excites the plant to increase growth and production in the upper regions.

 

What autoflower plants don't like is the topping of the growth tips. 

Because the autoflower plant has a limited lifespan, it has relatively little time to recover from a topping session to produce the new mature and productive colas.

i pruned the buttom 2 branches that were only leaves and kept the upper brachnches because they grow out right from the sun ( very long so they get sun as well ) [ OUTDOOR MIRACLE !]

gave it a nice dose of fretlizer and ill update pictures when im not high!

 

any way my plant is the shit!

I have never used NPK or artificial fertilizers before. The dosage manual says 0.3% for foliar usage and 0.1% for fertigation, but the overall amount per season max 300kg per hectare. When converted to square meters that is 30g/sq meter, which is a negligible amount and would not make a significant difference.

hi LeoGetz,

  Your plants are looking very happy. fish emulsion and sea weed are good organic nutrients. The plants love fish emulsion.

happy harvest, my friend.

This is first sign of water deficiency. It was grasshoppers eating your plant.  Spray garlic water or dust with ordinary flour. Use 5 or 6 thin sticks all around the plant to support it, like this...

Octopus, you are doing everything just fine.  Don't sweat the small stuff.

 

You are growing in soil, so the soil is retaining lots of the nutes that you have already fed.  I would advise to stop feeding nutes and let the plant grow its roots to "seek-out" the nutes that are already in the soil, otherwise you risk over-fertilizing the plant, which could damage the roots.  From here on out, water her with just rainwater.

 

You need to allow the fresh water feedings to eventually flush the excessive nutrients out of the soil in the weeks through flowering, otherwise the plant will have too many nutes and salts in its tissues, causing a harsh, bad-tasting smoke.

 

And remember to allow the soil to dry-out somewhat between waterings.  Cannabis likes oxygen at the roots.  If the soil remains always moist without the dry periods between waterings, then oxygen cannot get to the roots, and root-rot can occur.  If you stick your finger into the soil to the first knuckle and you do feel ANY moisture, then she does not need water.  Allow the plant to tell you when she needs water.  When the leaves begin to droop, that is the sign that she is ready for the next watering.  Remember, she likes the dry periods, as long as they are immediately followed by a watering that drains quickly away from the soil.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
