Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

Although she lost a branch early on, it didn't stop her from producing big, dense and super frosty flowers in the end. She has a great calyx to leaf ratio, meaning she has a lot of nug meat (calyx's) and not a lot of leaf material within the buds. This makes trimming a lot quicker and easier! A higher and later lollipop will be given to this girl next time she's in flower, as she became very branchy, with an incredible amount of lower nodes shooting right up and becoming floppy. By lollipopping higher up and later on in flower, it should stop any stretchy, floppy branches from growing and will let her concentrate on her main cola's more.

My pheno of Green Gelato is more of a creamy, nutty flavour with fruity undertones. She's a nice smoke with a hard hit. Her buds are dense and she has really big, swollen calyx's.

Nutrients
GHE

This is my very last run with General Hydroponics after switching to Remo Nutrients. I've been using the GHE base nutrient line for a long time. It has worked for me and I like the fact that this line is a 3 part, meaning I can feed at the ratios I wish to feed throughout a cycle and can control what is being fed exactly. Everything has always been super frosty and perfectly healthy so I can only put it down to the environment and what was being put in the coco!

A good Cal-Mag that performs just as well as any other when dialed in.

Never had any issues using Growth Technology Liquid Slilicon. The plants are perfectly bendable in veg and strong in structure.

Because this is the first time running this strain I can't say exactly, but there's no denying that the little microbes do their part when used in an already healthy grow. I'd always recommend it to anyone who is curious and hasn't tried it for themselves.

Smells funky but is great for the roots.

Bud explosion is a good PK booster, although it's quite hard to completely dissolve, it definitely increases bud sites, size and overall yield. I need to test the sweet candy does increase aroma and taste a bit.

Thanks again to RQS for providing the genetics for another diary! It's been another fun run. Thanks to all that follow, like and comment. I appreciate every one of you :facepunch::v::call_me_hand:

Once she was down, her fan leaves were cut off and each branch was hung in the drying box and left to dry for 8 days. It was left in a cool dark place to slow drying time. Once the outer leaves were dry her buds were given a close trim and jarred for curing. I put a 62% boveda pack inside to ensure the humidity is stable during curing, although it's not crucial. The jar is burped once a day for a few days and then left approx a week inbetween the next couple of openings. After 3 weeks or so, you don't have to worry about burping if you wish to store for a while, or you can tuck right in like I do!

Because I have 4 seperate quarters for other plants/strains in one tent, under one light, I've had to calculate these by dividing the conditions by 4 (4 sections in total sharing same conditions). This is the fairest and only way to work it out on average as a full tent. If you multiply by 4, it gives you the average amount for a full tent worth.

Happy growing! :fox_face:

Great diary! Congrats on dotm. :v: Do you like using that mammoth microbes? I recently picked up some myco product (endo, ecto, trichoderma) from my garden store ladies...think those sort of things are important to use every time? Microbes and what not.

TheFoxFarmer

@ExperimentGREEN, cheers! All microbial products/brands are different, using different species and concentrations too, so simply follow what the bottle/pack says and you should be just fine :ok_hand::+1::fox_face:
