Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

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.

Nutrients

This will be my 2nd grow using this line of Nutrients. I'm really starting to like the philosophy behind NFTG. I"ve adjusted to monitoring my water and soil for proper pH and PPM. I still think its a bit messy, but making larger batches solved that problem. I am still strugling with quantity. Once i dial in my feeding scheudle, I think I will have wonderful harvests.

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.

@SommerVirelli, Thank you! This was a very pleasant grow. No surprises. I wish the yield was bigger, but I'll work on that.

Can appreciate the hope for a higher yield dude but any time you pull 1+ oz. it’s still a smoke and a success:+1:. Enjoy it dude and looking forward to the next one:sunglasses::wink::facepunch:

@TheBudWhisperer, Yeah, the smoke is great! After trimming and jarring my harvest yesterday, I twisted up a phatty and enjoyed the fruits of my labors.

My new journals are up and running. I transplant and feed them for the first time tomorrow. They are already starting their 2nd full node!

Nice man. I just got my seeds and I got 3 of these as a freebie. That's awesome! I wanna try these in water. Just got my new light kits in for my next grow too. got some quantum boards I am going to build. equivalent to between 950 and 1000 watts! pretty excited about them. going to a friends machine shop to see what I can get rolling fir heat sink and a frame. lol. As I said before, I think I have an obsession on my hands. lol. I'll send u pics when I get it built.

@OkieJim, Let's see... The smoke is really strong compared to some of my other grows. It's certainly stronger than the herb I buy from the dispensaries locally. The flavor is a little diesely and sweet. She turned out fairly purple as well since the temps really dropped at the end of my last grow.

Gooey took a long time to get going in flowering. She seemed to flower a lot like a Sativa.

I'm excited about the lights. I'm tempted to set up a second tent since I have an extra light now. I'd put this one in a spare bedroom and grow a few autos! Can't have too many plants going! I also have been doing research on North American Seed Breeders. There are a ton of great breeders nearby! I won't have to worry about Customs seizing my harmless little seeds.

@Quexos, I know. I have been thinking about starting a perp grow with Moby and run some different autos on the side. I am super in love with the way my first grow has been going and want to keep this strain going. Would like to have 3 grows going at once in my storageshed conversion I am working on and probably a couple autos going in my box and possibly build another box. I'm insulating my shed and running a heat and air unit with a filtered exhaust scrubber thats uses 2 carbon filters and a carbon panel filter along with a filtered intake system. It will look like any mom and pop utility shed but green inside. Lol. I can grow 6 mature(flowering) plants and 6 seedling(vegitative). That is plenty enough for me. Hell it looks like running 2 at a time is gonna be plenty of me if all goes the way I think it will. But I want to bury some after curing it for a couple months and see how it does with a godiva after the summer. That way even during winter I still dont have to worry about local weed shortages. Lol.

@OkieJim, I hear that! Its tough to get ahead of the game though. All of our hard work seems to go up in smoke!

My goal is to be self sufficient. I like the local dispensaries. They are really nice people, I'd rather save my money.
