Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This is really a strain i want to grow more often. It's easy to grow, forgiving. The effect is on the fysical side but it does give a nice but short headbuzz. The taste is promising, there is at least one pheno that gives a strong grapefruit smell and taste. There is more bud that gives a kiwi taste, even more than the kiwi strain i tasted from a dispensary a while back. I have a 4 liter C-Vault that's filled for 3/4 now with the main buds. I'm going to wait untill the curing proces had his way. I think it's going to be even better once properly cured.

Commented by Budcrack Budcrack

This was the first grow i went heavy on training and that doesn't disappoint, although there is much more to gain when i manage to improve the techniques. And let's not forget that the endresult depends heavy on the drying and curing proces. I think i'd maybe overdried the buds a little. The Boveda-packs wil add moisture again what hopefully corrects this. The downside is the somewhat underwhelming endweight, that must improve also. It started almost at 52% and is currently risen to 56%. The average buds are between 3 and 4 gram, lower than the 5 grams i hoped for. Maybe next grow i must remove these underdeveloped branches to give the others more energy to grow big, and hopefully up these results next time.

Hi! I want to ask you guys to look at my plan and give your thought's and suggestions on it? Sorry for the long read, i tried to be detailed on it. I hope it's worth the effort. Thank you very much in advance for your input!

hey there budcrack hard to input based on a plan, but what i can see straight away is that you're not optimal on your vapour pressure deficit, VPD. VPD basically regulates the metabolism of the plant and if you want to optimise your grow time especially veg time, you'll want to tune that in. what you want to do right away is to get the humidity up and temperature about 1°C lower by using a dome, or a PET bottle cut in half over each of the seedlings to keep the moisture in. i see you're using coco nutrients and bloom boosters on day one... why? dont do that bro, you're gonna stress or maybe even kill these seedlings like that. Right now what you want to be doing is promoting ROOT growth, how ? kelp extract and micronutrients... combine them in a foliar spray spray once every 2 or 3 days until dripping wet for the first four weeks or so. that will help keeping the humidity up at least a bit as well. you're already using vitalize, which can be part of that spray... I see you got those LEDs and spectrums tuned in real nice : warm white is perfect, you got it ! a few last things ... your lamp to plant distance should be no more than 12 inches, currently you're at 17+ dial that in otherwise your plants will stretch all wrong. 7 PH is actually way too high ! what's the PH of rain water? 5.5 why is that important ? different nutrients get absorbed at different PHs, you want to lower the PH to at least 6 or even 5.8 if you can. i know it's a lot, but that's my best advice ! hope this helps ! :rocket:

My question is what improvements to my basic skills would enhance my plants general health and resistance against plagues and diseases. I want to learn how to improve health because of hydroponic aspirations in the future, where it is key to be able to react on minor changes! ;-)

Hi @Budcrack! I would recommend to consider DIY foliar sprays. In my opinion foliar feeding is an underrated topic, but a good foliar solution can have multiple benefits. Whether you want to speed up the growth, fix an upcoming deficiency, repel/kill pests or prevent an invasion, you can do all of this with 1 DIY foliar solution. I'm currently digging into this "perfect foliar spray quest" and found some surprising results by mixing humic acids, some Nitrogen fertilizer (MegaCrop), crushed garlic, liquid latex and neem oil. Doses should be experimented and adjusted, start with low doses for everything. If you experiment this please share your results with us! Hope this will help, happy growing :facepunch:

If you'd please look at the pictures with 'question' stated below them? This is actually the biggest bud, only it is showing these strange edges. There is (for now) no budrot, i checked. The leaves are firmly attached. What should i do, harvest it? The other buds don't show this.

Still feeding this late in flowering? Don't forget to cut the nutes 2 weeks before harvest and just water them untill you Chop. Looks like a problem with over- or underfeeding. Check this link out and try to deduct what you've been feeding and when and what you could be lacking or overdoing on.

@Mrtony, Yeah, i'm taking my time drying trough and trough because otherwise the inside of the bud is to wet and i can't get the moisture down inside the container. This way the right amount of moisture is added by the Boveda packs, easier to get it up than down. But it's true, it's not a big plus for the endweight.
I can assure you though, this was one of the best tasting bud i'd ever had, and it lasted me untill two weeks before the Honey Cream was ready, so it was almost enough. ;-)
