This strain is a beefy, high-production autoflowering strain. She towered over the other ladies in my grow. Big fluffy buds that look gorgeous. Will update more after dry and again after cure.

EDIT: Now it's time for the strain review.

Growing this lady was an absolute pleasure. I will most likely grow her again, albeit with a much different approach next time. What this lady needs during veg is training, training, training. She was gorgeous as she was, but she could have been so much better. Also, not feeding her any nutrients, other than my soil mix, I feel as if she could have really pushed much further. She needs space, training, and lots of water. I would love to see her outside in a 10 gallon smartpot with a well balanced nutrient/microbial setup.

I harvested this lady in two stages and I'm really glad I did. Giving her some extra time had much more of an effect than I would have thought, to be honest. The product from the first stage of harvest definitely has a heavy Northern Lights type effect. Very calming and a good night smoke or for countering anxiety/depression. Tested after 25 days cure, will continue to cure and test, but frankly it's a pretty decent smoke as it is. Could be a bit smoother, but I will chalk that up to time and technique.

As for her second stage harvest, I haven't sampled any of it since it has only been 16 days (as of this writing, 5/JAN/2019), but the aroma is noticeably different. The first cut has a much fruitier smell (as documented during the later weeks of my diary, First Auto Grow), while the latter cut has a lingering pine note that I'm really excited to sample. I don't expect a great deal of difference in the effect, but I will report if anything is noticeably different. My hypothesis is that it will have a slightly stronger sedative/relaxing component, but we shall see soon enough.

Nutrients

Wasn't difficult to use. I had some given to me as a donation towards this harvest, so I applied full strength during the final 3 weeks of flowering.

Top half was ready to go, harvested 12/9. Will update further with weights once dried.

EDIT: Top half dried and in jars for curing. 22g harvested from her top (see photos). She was, by far, the leafiest gal in the bunch which made trimming her tedious. However, the fluffiness of her buds allowed for fairly easy access to the base of the leaf stem, so overall the trim wasn't terrible. The biggest point to make about this strain is the SWEETNESS. I've never smelled any strain that even came close to how sweet and piney this one is.

EDIT2: Finally got around to cutting, trimming, and drying out the last half of the plant. I didn't take a wet weight just due to how awkward she was because I cut her down and dried her whole. I ended up with another 28g of dried flower for a total of 50g. Not shabby for such a relatively quick harvest.
