Wow what an incredibly qualitative not quantitative grow! The buds, while loose and airy are smelly as heck and sticky with an almost oily like resin. I can understand now why it's such a desirable strain for doing extracts, anytime you touch a bud or sugar leaves your fingers get an extremely greasy glued look. The plant has a nice hint of grapes buried beneath the strong cannabis scent.

With this plant being my 1st indoor grow there had been many mistakes from seed to harvest that helped cause such a low harvest. Such as using strong lights too late, using the 1 gallon pot, accidentally snapping the top half with some failed/late LST attempt, and getting a tent setup later than I liked. Fortunately the plant taught me enough to work out the kinks for the following grow and I'm seeing an extremely better difference from this 1st grow and the next.

Nutrients

I like the Fox Farm line a lot. If I have to use bottled nutrients I feel most comfortable, happy, and satisfied with them. I can see when it fixes a deficiency and I rarely encounter a toxicity.

I mainly used this because I had it available. But i know some people who have great success with Remo.

I'm undecided about the efficacy of this product even though I understand that mycorrhizal fungi is very important.

I love Kelp. Everyone should embrace kelp! If you can get kelp vs. Seaweed extract that's best.

I chose Mephisto Sour Stomper because I had seen others diaries and they all showed a relatively short plant, I knew my starting grow space and what it could accommodate and this strain seemed to fit what I had to work with. It's an extremely convenient thing to be able to research a plant and the way it might grow based off everyone's data on grow diaries, that was one of my most helpful tools at starting to attempt indoor growing. Using the 1 gallon smart pot was another difficult thing as it dried out very fast and needed watering 1-2 times daily, but i do believe there's a strong connection to the size of the pot and the size of your plant.
Due to this plant having so many unplanned complications and that lead to the less desirable bud density and quantity I had to make some decisions on what to do with the limited buds I had. After it dried for 5 days i was left with 17.6 grams of untrimmed highly resinous bud sites. I decided the best possible option available was to not trim the plant and just remove any leaf matter with no trichromes. I then used a Rosintech press to turn it all into Rosin....which worked great since the buds were so fresh. I did a practice press with some old dry buds and it was a huge failure...so key to good rosin, use the freshest buds you can find. I found that my most successful range was between 210-220 temperatures for about 1 minute. I tried using a 20 micron bag i had won on GD and it was useless unless you're pressing kief, basically any bag lower than 90 micron wasn't any good for pressing flower or trim material. Out of the 17.6 grams of material I managed to get 2.7 grams which is actually not bad, it's about a 15% return rate. Given I had to dial in my process and wasted a batch on the 20 micron bag I was very happy. The rosin was a very gorgeous honey color which is also a good sign.
So basically this was a fun grow, and no grow is a loss where you get to learn and try new things. This is a great strain for rosin pressing and it was a beautiful strain to see and smell. I'll definitely try to grow it outdoors this summer for comparison. Many thanks Mephisto. :v:

Grow Questions

Hey everyone.... So i sort of snapped a main stem, The Main Stem. Yikes it was awful. Any tips on attempting to piece plant parts back together? Miracle juices or anything like aloe vera? Any advice helps thank you all.

When it happens to me I support the stem with a stick and if it's not enough I use tape to keep the stem straight during recovery. If the stem is really almost broken then use both tape and sticks or cut it once and for all to make An auto clone but it is more funny than useful. Concerning what you can give to her I think aloe Vera can be a good stuff as it contain a lot of trace elements and even more , I use it on my skin injury to recover faster so maybe it works the same on ganja :thinking_face:

This is my first indoor grow, is there anything different i should be doing at harvest, other than just chopping it down like with outdoor? What's with the putting plants in the dark for 24+ hours before chopping?

@TheBudWhisperer, it's all trial and error....but the main thing press fresh. Don't press the year old trim that's been sitting in a glass jar getting crispy...it acts like a sponge and releases and then absorbs the rosin. :v:
