It’s finally here. The last week..! All of my hard work and commitment to these ladies is about to reward me with some super sticky flowers! And lots and lots of them by the looks of it...
These buds look unreal, it looks like amazing quality flowers all over these girls. It’s dense buds that are coated in trichomes and resin.
The flowers came out a bit more dense on this grow compared to my previous soil/HPS run, which I find surprising. This could be due to a variety of improvements within the garden but I’m going to attribute most of it to my increasing horticulture skills.

The flowers also smell so damn amazing.. it’s a very dank minty skunk coming off the GSC. This batch of flowers came out smelling like the best I’ve grown yet. The smell is overpoweringly dank and I wish I could share it with you all ; words cannot express the joy received from smelling these flowers. I’m really impressed with the Fastbuds genetics.

I’m super excited to give these the flush this week, truthfully the flush started a few days ago on these girls. I’m also going to try the “Dark Period” before the final harvest on these plants. There is much debated subject of giving plants a 24-48 hour dark period before the final harvest. Some growers swear by this method to improving trichomes with a final taste and smell increase, other growers say it does nothing. I’m going to give it a shot and leave these ladies in complete darkness for 1-2 days prior to harvest and see if it improves anything. Yes there will be before and after pictures to document any visual improvement if any appears.

This run of GSC came out much better looking than my previous soil run, I think “I’m in love with da coco!” :notes:(maybe that’s what the song is really about?) Im very lucky to live in Canada :flag-ca:. It is legal here to cultivate cannabis for personal consumption, prohibition on cannabis ended here on October 17th, 2018. :evergreen_tree:

I really enjoy growing cannabis, to me it is such a pleasure to nurture and care for these plants. The ultimate reward is watching them flourish into something beautiful. It’s very rewarding to grow your own cannabis and know exactly what is in your medicine. It is a time consuming hobby but the efforts are definitely worth the work in my humble opinion.

Grow Questions

As a first time coco coir grower what are some things to look out for or make sure to do?

This is my 3rd growing experience, my previous two grows were done in soil. So I’m
not a complete noob.

Please provide a good break down on the coco coir growing experience for me.

Dude - no reach out on this? I found it on a browse and I’ve been thinking on a Pure GSC strain for a while now!

Both ironic and Sweet! Will follow. Now with respect to coco - IMO it’s not much different from soil but I trust you’ve already seen that it’s got much better drainage properties. The key difference is it’s nutrient holding power in relation to soil as well as appropriate supplementation of the nutrients that soil has, that coco lacks (ie. calmag). As long as you supplement for the first month or so with calmag and keep a close eye out for nutrient burn (go easy/not full strength with nutrient formula for first run) it should be very similar to a soil grow. That’s the best I got for ya. Made the switch to coco myself because I like hand watering but would prefer a slightly faster growth rate. Cheers broski and looking forward to this one growing out!!!:facepunch::+1:

Your plants look great. The only thing I believe you should improve is training: a more agressive use of LST and super cropping to keep the plant squat. Good luck mate.

What are your thoughts on these plants ?
Do you have experience putting the plants in a prolonged dark period for 24-72 hours before harvest? If so, what happened?
Does this method improve the quality of the final product ?

hey man, there's a lot of FUD about the dark period, basically the main idea is that there's little you can do in the last 48 hours of a 3 month grow that will do something significant on the grow overall. but the dark period for sure has some benefits, for example a dark period before the chop means less photosynthesis chemicals present for the dry + cure. Second the dark period will boost the creation of terpenes. some say it's good for thc, but trychomes take 2 weeks or more to really make THC, so that"s FUD. second thing is that on planet earth it's almost never dark for two days straight, anything really more than 24H and for sure 48H will start messing with the trychomes and they could oxidise which is bad because you loose that much in potency. Hope this clears this up a bit, good luck ! :rocket:

@TheWeedMan, yeah dude for sure. It’s a tough thing to gauge however cause every strain will be a little different. Some require nothing and others need to be pillaged every other day! Lol
