Easy, easy plant to grow. She had strong secondary branching, recovered quickly from defoliating, and ate as much as I could feed her. The next time I grow this strain, I will definitely top and encourage the secondary nodes to the top of the canopy. She could've easily taken a more aggressive feeding schedule. There was considerable stretch when she was flipped, and flowering took a long time, similar to a Sativa.
My harvest technique started with a final flush. I allowed the plant to dry out for several days then I put her in my drying box for 3 days. The average temp in the drying box was 64-69 degrees. The humidity was a much wider range; 34-51. Once she was cut down, I wet trimmed then hung her by the stalks to dry for 7 days.
Smoke is really nice and heady so far. I took some popcorn nuggets and dried them last week. The aroma and taste is pretty pungent. It has a bit of a pine sol, diesel-like flavor. It's a bit different than the aromas I'm used to when harvesting. This strain was perfect to pair with some dark chocolate coconut cookies. Binge watching Netflix is bad though. This herb makes you want to get up and do stuff. Sitting in front of the TV seems like a waste.
This grow was a bit of an experiment. I wanted to allow the plant to grow naturally without any topping or training. Overall, I was very successful, but i think my yield could've been a lot better.
if I had at least topped and trained the canopy just a little bit, I would've definitely increased my yield.
