Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

I've tried 12 strains in 2018 and Critical Kush is definitely my favorite and highly recommended. It provides a great body high that really helps me forget about the neuropathy in my hands and feet.

The flavour is earthy and it smokes very smooth for a high THC strain. It is one of the stinkiest strains ive smoked, and everyone i have shared it with, mentions the smell.

Nutrients

Very happy with Advanced Nutrients for my first grow and i look forward to using them for my second grow too!

Equipment issues combined with my noobness limited my harvest, but in the end i was happy to get 2 ounces. My buds were smallish and my tent was warm and dry so i only hung them for 4 days and after a couple weeks of curing they are tasting excellent! I have learned a great deal during this grow and i am very excited for bigger and better things with my next one! I am attempting to tame a sativa beast in Barney's Laughing Buddha with mainlining. Thank you all for following!

Grow Questions
Cultus week 1 started grow question 8 months ago
These girls are needing to be topped, but since i just put them into the dwc system should i wait untill the roots have reached down into the water? Or is the rootball in the rockwool good enough to go ahead and top them, so they can get on with recovering from the stress?

Hi @Cultus! In this scenario, I would act by priority, and give them a few days to build strong roots. When you top, you can remove as many nodes as you want, it's even better to wait for 1-2 nodes to develop above the topped node, plants will recover faster. If your goal was to top at node 3 [for example], you could do it now and take the risk of a long recovery time, or you can do it in a week, by removing a bigger part of the plant, but with a shorter recovery time and a strong root system. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Harvest is just days away and i am still unsure what to do. Please give me your best advise on cutting and drying. Should i cut and hang the whole plant or individual branches? Trim fan leaves immediately or wait? How long do i hang it to dry? What about the popcorn and shake?

hey man starts with the flush, one day or two just plain water 12 hours of darkness not more than 24hours , then chop + hang the whole plant why? so that the photosynthesis chemicals go to the stem and the stalks and leaves, drying it is important, most commercial grows dry it over 12-14 days with no cure, at our level we still want to dry it slow, whatever you can do to keep the RH relatively high + the room cool 20-22 °C is the best, basically the plant will tell you when it's done : just select a popcorn nug and pull until it snaps off audibly from the plant. that's when it's ready if it's not ready you'll get stringyness to it or it won't really snap. All you have to do then is trim then straight into miron glass jars. i noticed real nice results with the miron glass , cures the trykes better somehow they stay intact better. The first week you want to inspect the bud daily, completely remove it from the jar then re-jar. the second week throw in a boveda 58 or 62% and keep inspecting daily the second week (even though you don't really need to do that with the boveda in there...) then only inspect once a week for 4 more weeks and you should have perfectly cured bud ! hope this helps my friend , wish i could TASTE ! :rocket:

@Cultus, I moved my 3 Samsquach OG to a friends tent as I have to move at the end of Jan. They are doing ok, but I can hardly call it my grow any longer. I will get something going in Feb possibly.
