Wow, now that was a hectic few days/weeks. Gutted that I had my dad looking after the final 2 weeks of this grow. They didn't quite finish out how I'd of liked but all in all I'm happy with the result. The end product is almost too big. The buds are a little fluffy but what it lacks in bag appeal it makes up for in smoke. This pheno is by far the strongest I've had (pre cure). Hung dry for 7 days then trimmed using the Trim Bag and a little hand fettle. I've smoked it twice now and both times its had me believing I'm in a cartoon or something :joy: great creative head buzz followed by a strong body buzz. Lasts a good 2 hours and slopes off to a nice relaxed pain relieving body stone.

Nutrients

Staple product in my setup. BioGreen lacks Nitrogen in the veg stage so I add this as abd when the girls tell me too.

Always start my seedlings and cuttings with this. Provides a perfect initial nutrition for plants in coco. I give it them for the first 14 days.

I will continue to use this line and improve my growing skills and knowledge. I still need to perfect the ratios but it's a great line and barely no salt build up throughout.

If anyone is thinking of trying FastBuds Pinapple Express then my advise is definitely give it a go! Training / Topping / Scrog will really really improve your yeilds. The quality of my buds could have been so much better and I will come back and give it another go in the future.

Grown under Maxibright 315w Lamps. Topped at the 3rd node, Scroged and cut away all the lower growth after 2nd week of flowering. Some defoliation/leaf tucking needed throughout the whole grow. Dont go too heavy on the nutes and she will really reward with the yeilds. Taste and smoke is unreal. Really smooth and sweet! I'll be smoking this for a very very long time.
Now curing in 20 litre buckets with a XL boveda so I'm hoping the buds do fatten up a little.

Grow Questions
TheIceCreamParlour week 7 started grow question 2 years ago
Check out my week 7 update for more info. Only one plant in the tent affected so it's really bugging me?!? Thought it was overwatering. Left them 2 days between feeds and they are bone dry and pots are light. Any suggestions or could it just be a trait of the Pheno?

Hey there ICP, i took a look, looks like two minor things to me. First of all those leaves with the strange coloring are a sign of phosphorous (P) deficiency. Second the little spots on the leaves some very minor calcium deficiency. You can fix the P-def with a bit more P/K fert, calcium deficiency you can fix with cal mag (2-6 ml / liter) . If you do remedy these, they should actually recover in around a week's time . Hope this helps bro ! :rocket:

Awesome looking journal and congrats on the good harvest! :D

I was wondering how many lights you use, and how big your grow space is? It looks like you have the balance perfect seeing the canopy from week 8 onwards :)

I'm thinking of switching over to them myself, so trying to find some good examples of people using them right.

@TheIceCreamParlour, thanks for getting back to me and appre iate the info! :) I prefer to train into a flat canopy like yourself due to the exact same problem, so will be giving the maxibright a a chance on my next run. Hope to see your next harvest soon! :D

@Tried_and_Tested, Hey man. My space is 1.5m x 2.4m. Only 1.5 high so I have to train them out flat like this to stop them getting too tall. Lighting is 4x maxibright 315w lamps. I also have an additional led LED I sometimes introduce towards the end of flower. My advice is grow any strain you like the look of. If you top it and train it correctly with adequate lighting then it will reward with great yeilds. Good luck!

very nice yield mate! looking forwards to growing my pineapple seeds next, especially after this diary. Shame about the buds being so fluffy but guess it is what it is :)

@TheIceCreamParlour, thats good to know as I run 600 hps in 1x1 so fingers crossed :) I already have the seeds sat waiting for their time to shine! The cookies are setting the bar to compete with currently ha!

@rudiak, do it! I will be coming back to this strain very soon to have another go. As long as you keep her on minimum veg nutes and train her properly she will reward with very big yeilds. I'm not using very powerfull lights in my set up so I'm sure someone else could make an even better job.
