Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

Alright, Choco Haze, let's get into it.

It is definitely a great strain in my book. It performed very well, was very forgiving with environmental conditions, had a great vitality and amazing resistance to pest! Around 12 clones were taken from her ranging from 5-15cm and all 12 have survived so good for cloning as well.

The buds were beautiful with deep orange pistils and covered in trichomes, very sticky stuff ! The smell was embalming my whole house starting from week 6-7 and it kept getting stronger the closer I got to harvest.

As for the smoke test from the scissor hash, it was mind blowing !! Living Organic grown terps are always on another level and this was clearly the case ! The plant itself smells like Spicy Chocolate with hints of berries but when smoked it feels like you are smoking hash, but a very sweet hash, it goes INCREDIBLY well with a cup of coffee.

I recommend it to anyone looking for a happy energetic Haze.

There was 3 plants in the grow room and they used a total space of 1.4m2. This particular one was using 0.5m2 ( 240g per m2 )
Out of interest sake the other plant was another Choco (clone) and the 3rd a Dance World also from RQS. The total yield of the combined plants is 280g.

Alright grow cycle, mistakes, improvements, etc...

She did stay in veg for too long, her growth was slow and not the best and so she took quite long, next time i'll be there from the beginning so I can take care of her throughout.

But her growth is really fun. It is a tall growing sativa with fairly tight noding when trained accordingly, producing long filled colas. The buds grow fairly dense and fluffly but do air out a little when dried. Trichome production was pretty impressive as well as terpene production.
She had thrips since her early days but did not seem to mind them at all. I did spray them initially but once flower started I stopped. I believe predatory mites might have been feeding on the pupae in the soil, if that is what this specific species of thrips did, the reason I say that is I could never see adults only larvae. Whatever the case maybe they were there but the population never really increased.
Something I did not mention during the grow is that those plants were played music during the days, music that is apparently developed for plants.

The 10L pot was WAY too small for a true sustainable living organic and to provide enough space for the plant, that was a mistake, I'd say a 20L would be the bare minimum and still. The bigger the better.

The hempy transfer did not hurt the plant and I believe even helped to some extent, BUT, I am still running test on the subject and so can't confirm anything, here are my observations

Roots did not colonize the perlite, a little on top and the sides but that was it, I was expecting to see a big root mass in there.
I believe hempy are great for salt fert as it hold a soup of nutes where the plant can feed from since the coco only holds very little
Whereas in nature most nutrient are in the top soil where the highest amount of decomposition happens, this is where the highest microbial activity happens and so where the plant will find food. Living organic is trying to reproduce nature and so there is no need for the plant's roots to gather at the bottom of the pot. Although it could have potentially provided the plant access to a larger amount of water and possibly more oxygenation of the pot. Those are all theories, please speak up if you have other proofs.
In conclusion , unless i get proven otherwise by someone or my latest running experiment , I will not be using hempies again as I believe it brings more complication and issues than a simple fabric pot.

The lights, The 600w at the start was good, then I decided to add a 400w...:joy: That was completely overkill and not necessary. Waste of electricity. And they started suffering from too much light it seems at some point, I raised the light by a good 30 cm and they were fine.
600 is more than enough.

I am happy about how the soil performed but it has room for improvements.

As for the watering technique I have been watering large ammount every few days, next time I will be giving constant small amount of water each day and a soak every week or so, I believe the soil might perform better under those conditions.

She was also an easy plant to harvest whit her long colas which had very little foliage, I do trim in excess as I like my buds extra clean but the buds are not excessively bushy.
The trims were use to make some bubble hash, around 100g of wet trims yielded around 1.5-2g of bubble hash.
I did add a negative effect but only because it wouldn't give me a smile otherwise, but to be honnest it barely dries your mouth.

The soil is going to be recycled and reused in a next grow.

I can't think of anything else at the moment but if you have any question don't hesitate.

Grow Questions
GreenMunchkin week 22 started grow question 7 months ago
Hey guys I need your help, I have a problem but I cannot seem to be able to put my finger on the cause. I added a few picture of the affected leaves, and what i think could be termites, let me know what you think Light burn ? Insects ? Deficiency ? Nute burn ? Over watering ?

Hello @GreenMunchkin ! Some slight deficiencies and maybe a little light burn at 1-2 leaves. Nothing to worry about at this stage of your grow. I don't know what is that bug ( it could be a termite ) but i can assure you that this guy didn't harm your plant and if you had an infestation you wouldn't have found only one. Happy growing ! :facepunch:
