Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

This is some good shit. I like it!
My smallest yeild.
Bag appeal: Nice dense nuggets covered in crystals. Not much trimming required.
Taste: predominantly nutty with the characteristic Girl Scout Cookies fuel aftertaste. First official taste in clean Journey3 pipe.
Effects: Relaxed, focused, good body buzz that works well on my neuropathic pain. I let about 40% of the trichomes go to amber.

This was a weird strain compared to many plants I''ve seen pictures of. It grew really pretty, small, tight dense nuggets that turned a nice rosy color. I look forward to having the growing skills to do a strain like this some real justice.
Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement. I pass a bowl you! 0

@TheFairyBudMother,if I showed you the first plants I ever grew , they were bag seed and I got 10 g a plant :seedling:

TheFairyBudMother
TheFairyBudMother

@BigDaddyK, I bet you were disappointed!

10 g is a lot for me. It would likely last me 1-2 months. This was a house clone from Buds & Roses LA which won a Cannabis Cup award for this cut. It's not a high yielding strain, and they did not recommend it as a first time grow. I wanted 3 different plants and since I have to drive an hour each way to buy pot or clones because of stupid zoning laws, I took 3 plants I thought might grow cannabis that would most likely work well on my pain. I figured worst case, I would learn a little bit about growing pot and in the best case, I would have lots to share with friends. Mostly I should have vegged the plant much longer for a higher yeild but who knows if it would have survived a longer grow given that I wasn't using a ppm meter and got spider mites partway through my grow.

On this next grow, I did put some bagseed in there, as well as using seeds from Bomb seeds. I currently have 6 seedlings, but I expect to have to cull a few of them because the bag seeds are regular, and some might be males or bisex.

@TheFairyBudMother,it's all a learning curve , best to underwater than over , early doors they get watered every three days , only in full flower do the get more often from me in soil but a bigger led will give more yield :+1:

You could probably benefit with a bigger led

@BigDaddyK,
yeeeeeesssssss big daddy, I agree, in my opinion the LEDs still have too little penetration.
After 1 years of continuos cicle, i've same convintion. Led, is good for all veg period, make short internods and a great foliar production, the best think in veg time. In bloom phase, penetration of hps.....is not yet equiparable to led. Now, are there in commerce new led COB that increase penetration, but its spectrum is only white.....aaaaaaand.......alway only good for veg opinion......my set up now is, 280w led for first 3-4 week, after, hps 400w or 600....its depend by season.:yum:

@TheFairyBudMother,
absolutly :muscle:, if you can bro, i suggest you same thing....use hps for bloom phase if you want maximize potential harvest of your strain.
At the beginning i insisted, i have come to do 3 continuous cycles with my 280w led (420€.............) ..... but the result compared with an hobby friend who only uses hps ..... i have to admit that there is no comparison ....
Ah.....! sorry guys for my english....:sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

@Mr_Di,MEIZHI are the brand you want 1200 watt $300 LeD - people are telling me good things about it :+1:

Mr_Di week 13

wow....very interesting bro!!!

anyway, caution my friend!!! often, market indicate watts compared to the hps ... my 280w led sold by comparing it to a 600w hps .... quite unreal. (Tested) ads: 580w led 5 bands full spectrum ... .the true? 280w ...... for my opinion .... Comparable max to a 400w ...
Even on amazon, find ads like 1000w led ..... then reading well, find that they consume 400w and are compared to 1000w hps ....... no worse thing to spend cash to have a What and then find another ..... under your expectations ... I speak for doh experience !! : D
But if you had a real 1000w led (power absorption) it would be a good buy for future :)

I hope my English is compliant

@TheFairyBudMother, my viparspectra 450 "200w" draw has grown my cheese auto pretty good.
Although in my 4x4 space 2 would be more effective.

@Bigpun,Yeah your grow is pretty impressive! I would look into COB lights. When I read that places like this https://www.heliospectra.com/blog/grove-nevada-experiences-unprecedented-positive-results-their-grow-using-heliospectras-led-grow

use LED (albiet insanely customizable light systems), I believe that much of the problem with perception of LED is that people don't have enough experience with them and they have improved vastly for the cost in only the past 2-3 years, which isn't long ago if you recently did your own experiments to learn the best method for you. I cannot in good conscience or economy justify the energy costs for light and cooling if I can figure out how avoid them.

@TheFairyBudMother, nice! Yeah i agree. the light penetration argument with LEDs is moot with white LEDs so I believe the only thing holding LEDs back is the price it's hard to beat a thousand Watts for 300 bucks.
