Sherbet Queen Automatic Grow Report: Seedling Stage (Week 1)

Week 1

To start things off, I prepared a high-quality growing medium, set up my lamps, and germinated my Sherbet Queen Automatic seed.

  • Growing medium: I decided to make my own potting mix using Biobizz Light Mix as a base, before mixing in additional nutrients and beneficial microorganisms. I placed 5l of Biobizz Light Mix into my 11l fabric pot, followed by 50g of RQS Easy Boost Organic Nutrition, 10g of RQS Rhizobacter, and 5g RQS Mycorrhiza Mix. I then mixed them all together thoroughly. Finally, I added another 5l of Biobizz Light Mix into the pot and mixed it into the growing medium. I watered the pot until the entire growing medium was saturated. 
  • Germination: I made a 1cm hole in the centre of the surface of the growing medium and inserted my seed. I covered it lightly with soil and misted the area.
  • Lighting: I hung my two Migro 200+ lamps from the top of the grow box using the ratchet strap provided. I positioned both of them 30cm horizontally from the midline to ensure an even spread of light, and 35cm vertically from the rim of my pot. I started running both lamps for 24 hours each day as soon as a shoot emerged from the soil.
  • Environment: I measured an average temperature of 25°C and a relative humidity of 60% during the first week.
  • Plant status: My seedling ticked all of the boxes at the end of the first week. It looked strong and sturdy, with no signs of stretching or disease.

Sherbet Queen Automatic Grow Report: Vegetative Stage (Week 2–4)

The start of the vegetative phase came around quickly! Find out what I did during this stage to keep my plant healthy and facilitate speedy growth.

Week 2

Week 2

My plant surged in height during the first week of the vegetative stage. Dark green and turgid leaves indicated that I had provided my plant with everything it needed to thrive.

  • Lighting: I kept both lamps running for 24 hours each day and repositioned them to hang 35cm from the tip of my plant.
  • Nutrients: On day one of the week, I adjusted 1l of water to a pH of 6.0 and hydrated my plant. I kept the feeding light, as my plant had access to the nutrients added to the growing medium. I simply added 4ml of liquid humic acid and seaweed to 1l of pH-adjusted water, and administered it on day 5.
  • Environment: I recorded an average temperature of 25°C and a relative humidity of 50%.
  • Plant status: By the end of the first week of veg, my plant looks great. It stood at a height of 15cm and had several new sets of true leaves. A sturdy main stem and thick petioles signalled signs of good health.

Week 3

Week 3

Things continued to cruise nicely during the second week of veg. I kept my lights on constantly and fed my plant with RQS veg nutrients to provide it with all of its nutritional needs.

  • Lighting: I repositioned the lights to hang 35cm above the tip of my plant and kept them running for 24 hours each day.
  • Nutrients: I prepared 1l of water and left it out for 24 hours to allow the chlorine to off-gas. Then, I adjusted the pH to 6.0 and watered my plant on day 2 of the week. On day 7, I added ⅓ of an RQS Easy Grow Booster Tablet (1g) into 1l of water and fed my plant.
  • Environment: Average temperature remained at 25°C and relative humidity dipped slightly to 45%.
  • Plant status: My plant continued to look great—a sign that I had nailed the balance of watering and feeding. I noticed no signs of pests, disease, or deficiency, and my plant had reached a height of 28cm.

Week 4

Week 4

Week 4 marked the final period of the vegetative phase. During this time, my plant continued to pack on size and started to develop the first signs of inflorescences at the nodes.

  • Lighting: Lights were readjusted to 35cm above the tip of the plant and remained on for 24 hours each day to maximise photosynthesis.
  • Nutrients: Again, I let 1l of water sit for 24 hours before adjusting its pH to 6.0 and watering my plant on day 2 of the week. I did the exact same thing on day 4. I decided to feed slightly heavier during the last week of veg to stimulate growth and prevent potential deficiencies from taking hold. I added the following to 1l of water and applied it on day 6 of the week:
    • 1.5ml CaMg+
    • 1ml organic sugar beet extract
  • Environment: Temperature and relative humidity increased slightly to 26°C and 50%, respectively.
  • Plant status: All seemed well. My plant appeared ready for a successful flowering stage. By the end of the week, the first signs of inflorescences were developing at many of the nodes.

Sherbet Queen Automatic Grow Report: Flowering Stage (Week 5–9)

The start of the flowering stage! Things continued to go smoothly. I switched up my feeding regimen to facilitate flower development, and flushed my plant for two weeks prior to harvest to ensure the best-tasting buds possible.

Weeks 5 & 6

Week 5

I made several key changes throughout the flowering stage, including altering the light schedule and feeding programme. Luckily, temperature and relative humidity metrics stayed within the appropriate ranges, helping me to secure a resinous, high-quality harvest.

  • Lighting: I reduced the light cycle to 20 hours on and 4 hours off, and repositioned my lamps to hang 35cm from the tip of my plant.
  • Nutrients: I started each week by applying 1l of water adjusted to a pH of 6.5 on day 2 (of both weeks). On day 4 of both weeks, I added the following to 1l of water and administered it to the growing medium:
  • Environment: I recorded an average temperature of 29°C and a relative humidity of 50%.
  • Plant status: By the end of week 6, my plant still hadn’t developed much of an aroma. However, the flowers continued to swell and my plant had reached a height of 88cm. I defoliated some of the lower leaves during week 5 to improve airflow through the canopy and direct resources toward the developing flowers.

Week 7

Week 7

I fed my plant for the final few times during week 7 before a two-week flush. At this stage, the buds started to bend a few branches, so I supported them by tying them to the main stem using pipe cleaners.

  • Lighting: I repositioned my lamps to hang 35cm above the tip of the canopy and continued to keep them running for 20 hours each day.
  • Nutrients: On day 2 of the week, I added 1g of RQS Easy Bloom Booster Tablets to 1l of water adjusted to 6.3 and fed my plant. I added the following to 1l of water on day 4 of the week:
    • 1.25ml liquid seaweed
    • 1.8ml organic sugar beet extract
    • 0.8ml humic and fulvic acid formula
    • 1.2ml complete bloom liquid fertiliser

On day 6, I added the following to 1l of water:

    • 2ml complete bloom liquid fertiliser
    • 1ml humic and fulvic acid formula
    • 1.5ml liquid seaweed
  • Environment: I recorded an average temperature of 29°C and a relative humidity of 45%.
  • Plant status: My plant started to smell strong, and had maintained its final height of 89cm. The flowers were getting larger, with an increasing amount of trichomes.

Weeks 8 & 9

Week 9

I started a two-week flush at the start of week 8 to force my plant to use up its nutrient reserves. This technique seeks to create flowers that are smoother to smoke and more flavourful.

  • Lighting: My lamps continued to hang 35cm above the tip of the canopy, running for 20 hours each day.
  • Nutrients: I applied 1l of water adjusted to a pH of 6.4 on days 2, 4, and 6 of the remaining weeks.
  • Environment: Temperature and relative humidity stayed fairly consistent at 29°C and 48%.
  • Plant status: By the end of week 9, my plant looked superb. Many of the fan leaves had become yellow due to the plant using up the remaining nutrients, and the buds smelled extremely strong. Thankfully, I saw no signs of pests or mould.

Harvest (Week 10)

Week 10

Harvest time! I cut my plant at the base and hung it upside down in my grow tent to dry in the dark. I made sure to keep my fan running to reduce the risk of mould. 10 days later, I dry-trimmed my buds and weighed up a harvest of 70g. I loaded the buds into curing jars with RQS Humidity Control Packs and let them cure for the next 6 weeks.
