Hello everyone. This is my first outdoor grow and my first autoflower grow. I have previously grew two plants indoor so i have a pretty good idea of what to expect during flower for a photo period plant. At first glance I think my plant looks really healthy and has responded well to LST. I only used LST and no form of HST.
Two days ago I noticed my plant was a little under watered and upon doing so i observed some little tiny wholes and a couple of leaves. Upon my observation I believed it do be some sort of insect chewing at the leaves but not to excessively at this point. I have taken a picture of the insect that might be the cause of the problem.
Ultimately I believe the plant is still really healthy, but the bud set seems to be taken a little longer than expected. I noticed the flower started to set in about a week ago and preflowers were present a little over a week. Please let me know what yall thing and if you have any advice.
The plants are being fed with Gai Green 4-4-4 during veg and amended with their 2-8-4 bloom a couple days ago. I also gave the plants a basic worm casting compost tea a couple days before I amended the bloom nutrients.
The strain name is called Blueberry Bliss Auto. Purchased from GYO seedbank.
