Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

It's unbelievable how much bud this girl produced, under only a 315w CMH. I can't even imagine what she would do under a bigger light! Her cola's grew very tall but full of flowers. Two or three cola's were even as thick as cola cans!

Although she produced a great amount of bud, this pheno wasn't very dense. She didn't smell much throughout her cycle and has a very piney flavour. I definitely believe there's better pheno's to be found of this strain, but that's the risk when running only 1 seed. If you haven't got much space or height then a very short veg period is recommended. Not only will she get tall, but she can get wide, bushy and floppy. Support her very well during flower as she won't support her own weight! Other than height issues this girl is an easy grow.

Nutrients
GHE

This is my very last run with General Hydroponics after switching to Remo Nutrients. I stopped using this line after wk6 veg. 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 have thick stems, 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.

Started using from wk7 veg and onwards until flush. I thought the line up performed well, but it's a very acidic nutrient line and wasn't easy keeping a steady pH in flower. I'll need to run a few more times to dial it in and perfect. With all that being said it was still a great harvest. Velokelp is great for healthy root growth and lessens transplant shock and Astro Flower seemed to have done it's job perfectly with this girl!

Bud explosion is a good PK booster, although it's quite hard to completely dissolve, it definitely increases bud sites, size and overall yield.

Another thank you to RQS for providing the genetics. She was a fun plant to grow, and watch her cola's forever get bigger and bigger! Thanks to all that follow, like and comment. I'm extremely grateful for everyone's input :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% Integra Boost pack inside each jar 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:

My girl has stayed relatively short so far, which is surprising because the leaves are certainly a higher sativa pheno. I assume some of this is owed to its training, but she didnโ€™t even seem to stretch drastically after I flipped her a few weeks back. Interesting to see how she will turn out! Congrats on your harvest my man!

@LazLow, cheers man. You may be lucky to have found a shorter phenotype! This girl was huge! Haha :v::fox_face:
