Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Weak

Once the buds are getting cured the smell and the aroma come to live.

The smoke is super smooth and tasty. It is not the strongest strain I’ve ever smoked but it leaves a great relaxed feeling to the body and the brain.

It gives really nice taste and smooth smoke.

I love the whole package. Since it is the first time I am growing weed it is difficult to provide objective score, but throughout the lifecycle the plants were absolutely healthy!

More pictures to come soon!

Commented by ReinDeer ReinDeer

It was an incredible growing journey, where I gained a lot of knowledge, experience and a hard euphoric kick to grow more in the future:sunglasses:. When I first saw the fully grown, mesmerizing buds, I was pleasantly surprised and without shame, proud of the harvest:blush:.

Here is something I came up under the influence of the beautiful plant:
,, now stored in the box,

set to cure

my jummy jummy buds,

I'm waiting for you

this said, :laughing: when smoking her, I feel there is some more curing to be done, to bring the buds their full potential in taste and aroma. While enjoying it, even at this state, you can already sense her deep earthy pine flavour.

Sitting here, enjoying the fruits of my labour and swimming in ideas of how to describe what I'm feeling, I can fully assure you that the effects are stating this while stoned, AMAZING:open_mouth::smile_cat::heart_eyes:.
I'm relaxed yet inspired and once and for all convinced that all they say about Northern light is true.

After all this deep thinking about the tasteful strain, I would like to say I was absolutely shocked how well the automatic strain preformed. I achieved a final yield of 173 g with one 600W led light. Looking forward to start a new journey, this time more experienced and another LED light in the tent. Just to know Santa was very generous. (thanks babe since I know you're proofreading this:wink:000

Grow Questions
ReinDeer week 11 started grow question 3 years ago
Do you recommend some special aditive to start flushing or would pure water with controlled Ph do the job? Thanks for the help:+1:

Hey there @ReinDeer to put it simply you don't need anything special to flush your plant really just time and water that is PHed correctly. Flushing additives help break down the salt deposits so they flush easier and quicker. Some flushing additives such as Cannazym also break down dead plant material in the growing media. Long story short: you don't need anything special just PHed water and a week or two(two if you have a nutrient burn or lockout). Hope this helps friend! :sunglasses:
ReinDeer week 12 started grow question 3 years ago
I finally harvested my plants and I am so excited about the quality and quantity I acchieved. Now the buds are curing. However they are a little too dry, the humidity is now 53% and it is falling slowly. What would be the best solution?

hey there ReinDeer, congrats on the harvest my friend ! so one thing to remember about the cure is that it will end when the bud's humidity reaches 50%. Don't worry though, the "outside of the bud" humidity and the "inside of the bud" humidity are different actually, and the inside humidity is what is important and will be higher than the outside one. Commercial growers will break up the bud and have a special machine that can measure this precisely. What you can do if you think the humidity is too low is to burp or inspect the bud less often say every two or three days instead of every day the first two weeks, then once a week then next 3-4 weeks. Another thing you can do is the boveda packs 58 or 62 % . Some growers leave the stems in or add some fan leaves in there to keep the humidity up. I've seen some folks add orange or lemon peel in the jar aswell , but i'm too worried about contamination to do that myself ! in fact you're probably okay as it is, and boveda packs are probably your best solution, some folks say it could lead to loss of taste, but i've never had any problems at all with them ! anyway hope this helps ! :rocket:

To answer your question:
Get something called boveda pack 62. They will regulate the humidity to the optimal value for curing. Look for them in Amazon
