Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

Displayed its Indica photype by never getting too tall. Good for an indoor grow. Was a little disappointed in the size of the buds; but may have to chalk that up to grower error. Bought this strain on an impulse buy for a "pop-up" sale that offered a 2 for 1 price. Still have some seeds, and will certainly put them to use.
Potency test 12.4% THC, less than 0.25% CBD. Disappointing, but not horrible.

Nutrients

Going to use Oregon's Only exclusively on next grow.

Had a couple of grower errors along the way. When I switched from vegetation nutrients to flowering, I did it all at once with no intervening flush. It hurt the girls for a number of days. Something happened about halfway through flowering, and the buds just stopped bulking up. Not sure what that was about. Potency was a disappointing 12.4%, but all things considered was acceptable.

Also had a noticeable difference in the bud hardness from one plant to the next. All things were equal except that the softer buds were on plants that received less pruning of fan leaves (because they were not as easy to reach). I believe this proves out the advice from others that pruning will cause energy to redirect to the buds when you remove unnecessary fan leaves. I will certainly be more aggressive with pruning next time.
Never did get any amber colored trichromes. Finally just gave up.

All in all, I was satisfied with the grow, but not pleased. I can certainly do better. Next up.... Moby Dick auto from Dinafem.
