I can't post harvest results in my diary as there as there is no GD harvest button to select, therefore notes about this harvest follow:
I experimented here re-vegging a spare green crack plant I had sitting in the window sill. This is not something I would recommend in the future. Over all it contributed negatively to plant performance I believe. Plant vigor was not what I would have expected. The other result impacting mistake I made l learned too late to fix. I still was over lighting the canopy and when I discovered this, I dimmed the fixture. Plants have a hard time going into reverse, so I have been told and witnessed with my own plant growth weirdness during reveg. stage. And this makes sense.
All matters to do with nutrients and lighting levels, the slope must always be on the incline evenly through out the grow. As they say, growers who experiment with their plants are heading for failure, growers that stick to conventional plant cultivating techniques are guaranteed good results. I am going full conventional next grow.
GROW GUIDANCE, by other growers suggested extra P was needed to make this plant shine. I tried easing off on the N as a way to do this and adding Big Up at various stages.I don't think this was successful way to go because the plant wasn't very frosty or smelly. If I were to grow this strain again, I would try another route. Perhaps this is a good plant to try Mammoth P as a supplement.
All in all, weight and quality of bud was way below expectations however despite my shitty grow, good genetics still shows through.This is a very powerful plant and the effects are intense and trippy. A very good day time stain because the visual effects are more pronounced and obvious. I am so not disappointed with the quality of the smoke. Its off the charts good even when it shouldn't be and I am very thankful for that.
Now, on to the next grow. I hope to be underway in a month., Wanted to try Crocketts Tangie next time but stocks are out in most places I look. I grew up smoking Thai and would like to try a hybrid.
I am also liking the skunk family a lot. Research is needed. Happy growing all.
Further thoughts. I have the answer to my growing issues listed above. Too much vegetative growth comes from too much N, obviously. The confusing thing was identifying the source of N as I was feeding with low ppms of N. As it happens, some bugs fix nitrogen into the soil or make it more accessible to the plant. ie It throws off your N balance. So watch out adding accelerators and microbes. The net result of too many is too much green on the buds.
This is a good argument for using only one range of products unless you are a plant biologist and know what you are doing.
