I got this strain as a gift and planted it in the first cultivation because I read good things about it. I had some problems during cultivation and I still got a satisfactory result, so I recommend this strain. I must smoke it soon. LOL

Nutrients

I used Easy boost on NL1 and apparently it worked very well, it was a plant that had many problems and even so I had a higher yield than the other plant with just fertilizer.

Commented by TheNextGanjaMan TheNextGanjaMan

I had problems with temperature and especially humidity throughout the cultivation, the environment here doesn't help, but I still have a satisfactory result with this strain. I even changed the LED panel in the final flowering phase, so the next harvest should have a much better result. I put them out to dry.

Smoke review

NL1 - 52G DRY
NL2 - 44G DRY
NL1 - using Easy Boost again had a higher result than what I didn't use. Considering that I had problems with humidity throughout the growing season, I consider this crop to be very good and productive. Nearly 100g dry, I'm definitely going to have a hard time smoking all of that. LOL

Germination Method
Of 6 only 1 seed germinated, I put the 5 directly in the soil to try to germinate, is this correct or should I try another method first?

There is nothing wrong with directly in the medium unless the medium is not up to par, meaning like its got old garbage in it and lots of molds.
You will never get 100% germination rate over the course of your life, shit happens and sometimes seeds are duds but 5 outa 6 duds seems a bit off.
Lets break it down.

The way I like to germinate is by scarfing the seed with an emery board, then soaking for 12hrs, after this I plant directly into the soil.
I will plant them about 1/2" to 1" deep and keep the top later of the soil moist but not wet. misting every day. I sometimes even put a little cup over the spot where the see was to keep humidity high in that area, remove this once its sprouted though and give it fresh air once daily.

Once the seed shell cracks it has germinated if a little root tip is exposed it is also classified as germinated, A lot can happen from germination to sprout. and this is where most users have the issues, ranging from overwatering/overfeeding, to heavy mediums unforgiving of seedlings or mishandling of the the little sprout.

I would suggest an alternate method to germinating till you get the hang of it, I would also reach out to the company and see if they can spot you a few more, maybe there was a bad batch.

Best Of Luck!
