Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This strain is a great smoke anytime of day. A great sativa high. The high is uplifting, and leaves me feeling happy. This strain is likely good for reducing stress, and treating depression and aches and pains. The four phenos I grew were all slightly different in growth. I will grow this autoflower again in the future. Germination rate was 100%.

Nutrients

In future grows, I need to learn to back off the dosage. I experienced some nutrient tip burn.

So....what did I learn from my first grow?

1. Growing cannabis is FUN!!!:smiley:
2. While cannabis is not addictive, growing it sure is!!
3. Training and manipulating the plants is a relaxing pastime.
4. The importance of the grow tent enviroment....temp, air flow, humidity, light levels, etc.
5. VPD
6. How to inspect trichomes, and assess plant harvest times.
7. The harvesting, drying and curing process.

I'm real happy with my first grow, and would like to thank all the great people in this community who helped me along the way:grinning:
.
The pictures of the scales are incorrect. 16grams for the weight of the plastic tray needs to be subtracted off the indicated values.
Lamb's Breath Auto 1 (LBA1) weighed 52g, LBA 2 50g, LBA 3 35g, LBA 4 (The Runt) 28g for a grand total of 165g. Plus 25 grams of prime trim,
and 0.5 grams of scissor hash: 1:.

You can see in the photos that I really bent and tied these plants down ( perhaps not quite LST, more like MST):stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. The plants grew about 10 to 12 inches tall. These plants would really suit a closet or tent with low ceilings.

Looking forward to the next grow, just started 3 types of photo periiods - Blueberry, Blue Cookies, and Glueberry OG...so keep an eye out for some new diaries, and please drop by and leave a comment.
:smiley:Peace,
DeaneR.

Grow Questions
DeaneR week 5 started grow question 2 months ago
Over the next several weeks...What should I expect to see, regarding the fan and sugar leaves. Do the nutes in the leaves get consumed for flower production? I don't want to freak out over any change in appearance. I plan on only using pH'd water till harvest. Thanks 4 the advice

the plant will only canabalise itself during the flower stretch if it doesn t find its nutes in the soil or through it's foliage. The rate at which the plant will seek out nutrients depends on its metabolism which in turn depends on the light schedule and the "vapor pressure deficit" (VPD). You're 10/10 VPD-wise, and your light schedule is intense actually so you can expect BIG growth ! Big growth means more nutes needed, simple as that. Therefore you should for sure expect to see some yellowing, starting with the bottom fan leaves. Since you're not going to be giving any more nutrients, you need to keep an eye on what's going on - there will be "expected yellowing", but you need to stay on top of it in case you run into som "unexpected deficiencies or related problems... does this answer your question at all? hope this helps ! :rocket:
DeaneR week 8 started grow question 1 month ago
This being my first harvest, I ask the following. When to Harvest? What % amber trichomes? Are trichomes the only factor? I'm not looking for couchlock! Darkness nap, before harvest? What process do you guys and gals out in GD land use? Thanks for sharing your Knowledge. DeaneR:pray:

Congrats on the cool new kit ! Yeah trichomes are the only thing that matters, after all pistills will turn Amber once you chop , and how quickly or even if they turn Amber is strain dependent . So you want to check out the trichomes at minimum 40x or more, 60x is more comfortable and 100x looks like an alien planet. You're at something like 60% cloudy right now, So keep checking daily because the trichomes can turn overnight . So for maximum thc as you know you want all cloudy no clear, and for that it's better to wait until you see the first Amber trichomes. A lot of the time a plant will ripen faster on the main cola rather than all over at the same time, if that's your case harvest the main first then the rest a couple weeks later. The dark period is basically so that there are less photosynthesis chemicals present at the chop which really helps with the cure, 12-24hrs is all you need, more than that you're likely to mess with the trychomes but boost terpene production. Remember though - thc production happens mostly during the cure ! The cure is very important ! The cure starts the moment you chop until the bud s humidity reaches 50%, light is a no go, try to chop in the dark and jar in the dark to preserve the very sensitive terpenes. Chop, then hang the plant whole, drying period is done when the little popcorn buds snap off the stem audibly . Manicure and jar the buds, inspecting them daily for one to two weeks (remove them completely from the jar then back into the jar again) , then weekly for the next four weeks. You can add boveda packs after the first week or two I be used the 62% ones but I'll be trying the 58% ones next. A bit more than what you asked for, but I hope this helps ! Good luck crossing the finish line ! :rocket:
