Blue Cheese Automatic Grow Report: Seedling Stage (Week 1)

Week 1

Welcome to the very beginning of my Blue Cheese Automatic grow guide! Check out what I did during the first week to ensure the healthiest seedlings possible.

 Germination 
To boost germination success, I opted to use RQS Soil Plugs—a product that contains all of the micronutrients and biological inputs that a healthy seedling requires. I placed the plug into a cultivation tray and soaked it with enough water to reach full saturation without overwatering. Then, I used a wooden skewer to gently insert my seed into the hole.
 Lighting 
After setting up my grow tent, I suspended our MIGRO 200+ light from the ceiling and positioned it 35cm above the cultivation tray. I left the light running for 24 hours each day as soon as I saw the first sign of our sprout emerge.
 Growing medium 
Within five days of sprouting, my seedling put on some size. I prepared a growing medium for an 11L Air Pot by starting with 10L of BioBizz Light Mix. Then, I added in the following organic amendments to boost nutrient cycling throughout the growing cycle:

After mixing thoroughly, I filled the container and saturated it with water. Then, I created a plug-sized hole in the centre of the surface of the growing medium, transplanted my seedling, and watered it in.

 Environment 
Using a hygrometer, I noted a temperature of 24°C and a humidity of 40%. I decided to switch on the humidifier to try and raise the humidity to 65–70%.
 Plant status 
By the end of the seedling stage, my specimen displayed healthy dark green leaves and lots of turgor.

Blue Cheese Automatic Grow Report: Vegetative Stage (Week 2–4)

After developing a couple of sets of true leaves, my plant departed the seedling stage and entered the vegetative phase of the growing cycle. Find out what I did to maintain a healthy and strong plant during this time.

Week 2

Week 2
 Lighting 
I maintained a 24-hour light cycle at this stage to drive photosynthesis and avoid stretching during this important part of plant development. I repositioned the light 35cm above the growing canopy.
 Nutrients 
Because my growing medium contained so many essential nutrients and biologicals, I kept things simple by applying 4ml/l liquid seaweed and humic acid blend during watering on days 1 and 4 of the week. I also used a pH regulator to balance out our water before application. I applied 1.5 litres of water on days 1 and 4 of the week.
 Environment 
I maintained a steady temperature of 25.1°C. Using the humidifier from week 1 enabled me to increase the humidity slightly to 50%.
 Plant status 
By the end of the week, my plants stood at 7cm and had started to develop substantial and luscious fan leaves.

Week 3

Week 3
 Lighting 
I maintained the light cycle of 24 hours with lights on.
 Nutrients 
Although thriving, I decided to add Easy Grow Booster Tablets to facilitate the rapid growth of our Blue Cheese Auto specimen. I prepared 1.5L of water, adjusted pH to 6.2, added one Easy Grow Booster Tablet and applied it on day 1 of the week.
 Environment 
Temperature stayed at around 24°C with humidity hovering around 45%.
 Plant status 
By the end of week three, my plant reached a height of 16cm with a dense but small canopy of full-sized fan leaves.

Week 4

Week 4
 Lighting 
During the final week of veg, I decided to keep the light running for 24 hours each day, as the plant was responding so well to this regimen.
 Nutrients 
I applied the following solution on days 1 and 4 of week 4:

• 5L water

• 1 Easy Grow Booster Tablets

• 1m/L Easy Plus Micronutrients

I watered with this solution until the growing medium became saturated, not water-logged.

 Environment 
Things continued steadily with an average temperature of 24°C and humidity of 42%.
 Plant status 
My plant exploded in growth during the final week of veg, reaching 31cm. At this point, it had such a dense canopy of leaves that I decided to defoliate the bottom of the canopy to direct energy upwards for flowering and to improve air circulation.

Blue Cheese Automatic Grow Report: Flowering Stage (Week 5–10)

Welcome to the flowering phase! My Blue Cheese Automatic plant responded extremely well to our lighting and nutrient regimen during veg. Check out how things continued throughout the rest of my Blue Cheese Automatic grow guide.

Week 5

Week 5
 Lighting 
I dialled down the lighting schedule to 20 hours on and 4 hours off. This gave my plant enough light exposure for optimal photosynthesis while reducing unnecessary electricity costs during the flowering phase.
 Nutrients 
Because plants require different quantities of macronutrients during the flowering stage, I switched to the following formula to support healthy bud formation:

• 1 Easy Bloom Booster Tablets

• 1ml/L Easy Plus Micronutrients

Easy Bloom Booster Tablets provide lower amounts of nitrogen and higher quantities of potassium and phosphorus—two key nutrients required by cannabis plants during bloom. I added this mix to 5L of water and applied it on days 1 and 4 of week 5 until the growing medium became saturated.

 Environment 
Temperatures continued to cruise at 24°C. I turned off the humidifier and let the grow box settle at a humidity of 40% to reduce the chances of fungal pathogens during flowering.
 Plant status 
My plant quickly bounced back from the stress of last week’s defoliation. At this point, it had reached 41cm and began to display the first signs of buds.

Week 6

Week 6
 Lighting 
I repositioned the light to suspend 35cm about the top of the canopy and kept them running for 20 hours per day.
 Nutrients 
We applied the same nutrient formula as the previous week on days 1 and 4.
 Environment 
Temperature remained at 24°C. Average humidity dropped slightly to 38%.
 Plant status 
My plant grew a total of 4cm over week 6, reaching 45cm tall. The buds started to swell slightly and started to emit a weak skunky odour.

Week 7

Week 7
 Lighting 
I kept the lights running at 20 hours on and 4 hours off.
 Nutrients 
I dropped the micronutrients from our mix as we got closer to flushing. Instead, I added 1 Easy Bloom Booster Tablet in 5L of water and administered them on days 1 and 3 until I reached the saturation point of the growing medium.
 Environment 
Temperature remained consistent at 24 and average humidity at 40%.
 Plant status 
My container selection meant that my auto remained at the stealthy height of 45cm throughout the rest of the growing cycle. Despite this small size, my plant developed plenty of bud sites which continued to put out increasingly large buds. At this point in the grow, my Blue Cheese Automatic specimen started to put out a stronger odour.

Week 8

Week 8
 Lighting 
Remained the same as the previous weeks of the flowering phase.
 Nutrients 
During week 8, I administered the final feeds before starting flushing. I mixed 1 Easy Bloom Booster Tablet to 5L of water and applied on days 1 and 3 of week 8 until saturated.
 Environment 
Temperature stayed consistent at 24°C. Humidity dropped, in my favour, to 37%, reducing the odds of mould developing on the flowers.
 Plant status 
With no training, my plant developed a relatively even canopy packed with uniform colas. I used a loupe to take a closer look at the trichomes, which displayed a translucent appearance, indicating immature flowers.

Week 9–10

Week 9
 Lighting 
I continued to expose our plant to 20 hours of light per day.
 Nutrients 
I ceased applying nutrients to start the flush. This process enables plants to use up their nutrient stores, resulting in more pleasant tastes. I applied 2L of water regulated to a pH of 6.1 on days 1 and 3 of weeks 9 and 10.
 Environment 
Temperatures stayed at 24°C. Humidity dropped slightly to an average of 35%.
 Plant status 
My plant started to show obvious signs of deficiency, something I desired during flushing. The lower leaves started to yellow, and the stems displayed a deep purple colour—a sign of anthocyanin expression. Upon inspection with a loupe, I noticed the trichomes becoming cloudier by the day.

Harvest (Week 10)

Harvest

At this stage, the flowers swelled, the smell became extremely strong, and the trichomes became opaque and milky. I cut the plant as the base and hung it upside down in the grow box to dry in front of a fan before dry trimming and curing. Overall, I achieved 45g of dried buds that emitted a strong fruity aroma.

If you’re familiar with classic cannabis strains, you’ll recognise that this hardy auto descends from royalty. Blueberry brought high levels of myrcene and dense frosty buds to the table, whereas Cheese passed down high levels of THC and a pleasant clear-headed high. The addition of ruderalis genetics made this variety easy to grow and fast to flower.
🌱 Grow Characteristics of Blue Cheese Automatic
Blue Cheese Automatic grows well just about anywhere. Indoors, she grows to a stealthy height of 40–70cm and produces up to 375g/m² under powerful lights. When grown outdoors, plants peak at a taller height of 100cm and offer a return of 60–110g/plant. Expect to harvest these flowers in as little as 10 weeks after they sprout through the soil.
🌈 Effects and Flavour of Blue Cheese Automatic
These purple-green buds pack a moderate THC content of 16%. They exert a clear-headed and uplifting high that hits the sweet spot of most cannabis users without tipping them over the edge; Blue Cheese Auto makes a great choice for novices. After each hit, you’ll experience flavours of cheese, earth, fruit, and pepper lingering on your taste buds. High levels of fruity terpene myrcene synergise with THC to create a cosy body high.
