It took me almost 5 months to write this review. I don’t know where to start from. Well, I always wanted to grow a legendary sativa like this, but I felt I wasn’t really ready to do it. I preferred to grow other strains and try new growing mediums before, and that’s exactly what I did. And because I don’t like ordinary and “easy” things, I wanted to put myself to the limits and try something really hard and never tried before (by me): growing the legendary Silver Haze from Sensi Seeds in ScrOG using a coco coir medium, filling all the grow room (1m x 1m) with one plant only. Yes, that’s what I did.

In general, I can say I’m very happy with the results, except for one thing: Advanced Nutrients. I’m sad because they burned many fan leaves on last weeks, and this because of a misunderstanding with reported dosages on bottles (which, I later discovered, are calculated following American growing standards with 1000W HPS lights). The problem is that Advanced Nutrients, with their PH-PPM perfect formula, tells you NOT to adjust PPMs of the solution because the reported value from your pen will be affected by many other components besides dissolved fertilizer in the water (eg. pH buffers, humic and fulvic acid, amino acids, etc...). They say you should start from 1/4 of the reported dosage, and increase that value a bit a bit until you reach full strength. That’s not the way I like to work, and that’s why I’ll never use their nutrients again. I’ll choose a brand of nutrients that makes you easily manage PPMs instead. But let’s talk about something happier now: the plant itself.

The hype is real here. Let’s start by saying that those burned leaves didn’t ruin any final buds. Yay! The only concern I had about this growth was linked to Silver’s flowering stretch. I didn’t know the strain, and couldn’t guess how the stretch would have been. I only knew she could become 3x bigger during the first month of bloom. But if you don’t know when she’s gonna stop, what do you do? Stop bending, without filling up all the ScrOG grid, or you keep bending, hoping she will not stop while she’s still under the grid? Hard choice. Really hard. That’s why everyone says you firstly have to know the strain, before trying ScrOG. I’ve been lucky here, and yes, I opted for option B: keep bending! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The plant, as you see, is strong, and I’d say even tolerant enough to nutes. My case was a bit extreme, so maybe a skunk would have suffered too, lol. She likes topping, and reacts to it very very quickly, as well as super cropping or LST. During flowering, you can keep bending for at least 3.5/4 weeks since the day you switch to 12/12. If you do the switch and are sure that you don’t have light leaks on dark hours, you’ll start seeing pistils after one week (with temperatures similar to mine). During flowering, you don’t have to worry about size of your buds, since they’ll get A LOT bigger only on last two weeks. Believe me!

Let’s now talk about the most interesting part: buds and their effects. If you touch them, they leave you a tropical mouth watering smell on your fingers. The smell is a combination of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, and peach. I love it. When you smoke her, you keep tasting those flavors if you vaporize at 180C, but if you increase to 200C, you don’t taste that citrus hint anymore (or maybe just a little less).

The effect is the true masterpiece of this strain. No paranoia. Couch lock is absent, but if you decide to relax on your sofa, or bed, you’ll be in the perfect location to start thinking and contemplating about your life and many many many other things. Thoughts are moving faster here. No joke. You’re creative like never before, and happy. You don’t think about problems. You like everything. And you start appreciating how nice moving slow and focusing on every little thing you do is. Wow. Almost 5 months to create this wonderful thing. I don’t think I’ll never find another strain like this. Someone tells Jack Herer could be better, who knows? But this is now my starting point on what a real sativa should be. Nice one, Sensi Seeds.

Update: added bud photos after 3 months of curing in the jars!

Sensi Seeds has wonderful strains. They know what they do, and you immediately notice it. I can’t wait to try their new Michka, and maybe the legendary Jack Herer as well. A big thank you to my brothers @Magnetous, @Mr_Di and @Endriu for all the support and the love. They made me totally fall in love for this magical world. See ya, and hope you liked this diary!

Grow Questions
TOTEM week 5 started grow question 2 years ago
I tried Advanced Nutrients feeding calculator. 30L reservoir full of tap water (130ppm) and, in total, 120ml for both Connoisseur A+B, and 60ml for each of the 3 additives. I did exactly what they suggested and measured EC after mixing up well. Is it normal to have this crazy EC?

Your plant has gone from a snug fit in a 5l pot to a very lose fit in a 20l pot. You've gone straight from feeding it 5l worth of food to 4xthat in the new 20l pot. When transplanting I would advise using 1/4 to 1/3 of the 20l AN nute regime until the plant has started to fill up the new 20l pot. When it's half filled it, use half the recommended dose for a 20l pot, etc.

What was your dry weight? @totem

TOTEM

@Ironlungs, in reality I got 298g, but reported 300g because I took some small buds (and a bigger one) away from the plant on last week before harvest, in order to try their first smoke.... I just rounded up a little

@Ironlungs, 300g dry! After the trim I was so destroyed I never found the strenght and the will to open the grow box and weigh them for at least 10 days..... so no wet weight unfortunately!

And another one... sick grow dude and great review! My thoughts exactly re: scrogging a plant you know well. My first scrog has gotten a little outta control due to lack of knowledge on the stretch and strain characteristics. That said, haze strains like yours are always the bomb and I would strongly recommend Jack Herer if you’re looking for another big stretch sativa- just a quality strain all around! Keep up the good work homey - looking forward to your next grow! :+1::facepunch:
