Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Weak

Bubble Gum (from seed) grown in DWC from MSNL. So This had to be the most sensitive strain I have ever grown. I do not think that was necessarily a bad thing either. I could not give it any more than 1/8-1/4 strength nutrients at any point or they would burn immediately. These plants were very sensitive and responsive to any environmental changes.

It makes it so you really do not have to use many nutrients which is actually very cost effective but it is unforgiving. It did really well in a manifold. I probably would not pick this strain again to grow again but they are really great for some free seeds!

Great as a stealth strain and emits very little odor when growing. If you have a carbon filter you will be perfect.

Thanks MSNL!

Month Cure Update:

So I can sort of detect a faint fruity/lemony scent but it is underneath the same smell I smelled from my white widow last grow. I am not positive but I am pretty sure it dried to fast or the Boveda packs are having some sort of impact. I hung them up for about 4 days before putting them into jars but I believe I was too aggressive with the burping and over dried them once I had cut them down.

The high from my perspective is very mellow and the smoke is very smooth about a month in. It is definitely great for watching a movie or doing something creative but it definitely hits my speech pathways because I get really tongue tied (and then quiet) when I smoke it. Great for bed time.

Nutrients

Fantastic. Will be increasing the number of AN products I use as I run out of other nutes. The boost to the roots and the strength of the stalks was alllllllllll about the Voodoo and B-52. If I could only pick three additional nutes It would be voodoo, b-52, and overdrive. Bigger roots, bigger fruits!

GHE

Good products, I just don't like to be giving my money to Monsanto so I will be switching to AN for base nutrients as well next grow.

Terpinator is incredibly potent and if I kept one product non AN it might be this one. I've run side by side trials and there is no doubt in my mind that this stuff works. Well.

This was a really long grow. A few set backs but overall I learned a lot and had a really positive experience. I did a few weird unofficial experiments for this grow:

First - I used a wet trimming method for one plant and a dry trim method of the other one. I live in a very dry environment and even using a humidifier can be difficult to control humidity. I am going to compare the results to determine if there is a difference in smell, quality, smoke, smoothness, etc. I have read a lot and it seems to be a bit of preference so I want to find out what I like.

Second - I tried "Docs Bud Washing Technique" on 4 of the colas. Google the quote to find the discussion board where it the method was discovered. There are arguments for and against but it has not really been clinically tested to determine if it is beneficial. Basically there are three buckets. The first has baking soda and lemon juice in room temp water. Second has the hottest water the tap can generate. Third is clean cold RO water. Supposedly it gets rid of dirt and hair and stuff that accumulates on the buds as they grow. THC is not water soluble so they do not fall off into the water. I tried this method with 4 of the 16 colas to determine if it works and contributes to a smoother smoke.

I will be drying them for as long as I can at 40-50% RH in my dark flower tent. After that they go into jars and I will cure them for a month.

Also, I did a 3 day flush at the end with plain tap water and Flawless Finish from AN. Trying out a shorter flush this time around because I used very low ppm over the course of their lives and there is no true science behind the flush impacting bud taste or smoothness, more that it just flushes the root and medium out.

I am happy with the results so far and I will come back in about a month to post final tasting results and pictures. Thanks to everyone who hit me up, was a really fun grow and I love this site honestly. Cannot wait to keep doing it with the next batch. Grow on folks! : 1:0

@Grimbol, Hi bro, can you please tell me if she gots that famous strawberry :strawberry: bubble gum taste ?
Bubble gum comes from Indiana , when it arrived in Amsterdam in the 90's that strain has made a revolution in the coffeeshops , cuttings from the original Indiana strain has been giving to 2 persons, one from T.H Seeds and one from Serious Seeds , the strain in the 90's really tasted that sweet strawberry bubble gum flavor, the same bubble gum that we were chewing when we were kids.

During all these years the strain has lost his typical flavor, now only one fenotype on a hundred has this strong and powerful flavor that I'm looking for , I hope you got the one on a hundred :+1:

@B4RNS,

Yeah dude I'll be sure to try and take note of that when it fully cures. Right now the smell is just lightly flowery I would say. Thanks!

@DUBDOLLASIGN100,

Thanks a bunch dude! Learned so much! You just wait for these grand daddy purps to come out. If they are the purple pheno it's going to be legendary. I would estimate I am 1-2 weeks from flowering them.
