Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Overall 8/10 for me. Dont get me wrong this strain had soooooo much potential and a better grower will produce some fantastic results. I'll be back to grow it again some time in the future but for now my time with FastBuds is over. To many seeds gone to waste which has cost me. I've (5 days ago) popped a 'freebie' Blackberry seed into water and that hasn't sprouted so unfortunately that's the last straw. Great genetics no doubt but a little too unreliable for me. I'm back growing photoperiod for a little while.

Smoke is fantastic. Fruity, strawberry sweets is what it smells and tastes like. High is a 60/40 on the indica side which is a nice balance. Buds turned out a bit spongey but that's down to myself as I said.

Nutrients

Great supplimentation for BioGreen A+B as it doesnt have enough N for some strains early veg stage.

Staple in my garden. First week from seed it's all I give my girls before moving onto regular A+B schedule.

Great line. I will be sticking with them for at least another grow. After this I'll probably switch to Canna.

All in all a great genetic. Grew into insane colas. The photos above are of only half the total yeild as I have 8oz bagged up and sealed. After a weeks curing it has improved but not enough to really blow me away. I'll be back to seek my revenge in the future but for now its goodbye.

Grow Questions
TheIceCreamParlour week 5 started grow question 2 years ago
Hey guys, just a general question regarding my set up. Reason for trying these Six Shooter is mainly down to the potential big yeilds that FastBuds claim can be achieved. I'm looking for advise on a sure fire strain that can achieve big yeilds. Please hit me up with suggestions!

Hey there so strain wise i think any you pick with a skunk or haze background can be very rewarding, but some take a much longer flowering time...
Genetics are hugely important but regardless of seeds there are many factors in your power to help yields. Such as light hours and intensity-so tie down where you can, and remove low biomass like unusable leaves and popcorn buds getting minimal to no light. Defoliate where necessary and open the budsites to light. Then do your best to maintain the perfect environment like temp/humidity(possibly check a vpd chart for your area) and be giving good nutrients but dont over do it. Sometimes more isn't always best. Some small tricks are things like molasses during flower can help with buds and flavor by adding much needed sugar to your root zone.
Happy growing :v:
