Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

Growing this strain was pretty straightforward and I got 2 different phenos. Pheno #1 was straight gas while pheno #2 leaned heavily towards berries.

After flowering for 67 days both plants were chopped at the same time and I did a long slow dry to preserve the terpenes.

Both plants were on the leafier side in terms of trimming and in terms of nug density it’s not rock hard or fluffy. It’s about in the middle and the colas came out quite nice with decent calyx stacking. I feel like I still chopped a little early and should have let her go at least a week or 2 longer.

Overall I’m pretty happy with my first run and have definitely learned quite a few things to have better run for the next grow which will be starting in about a weeks time. Since I only grew 2 plants I got a little over 8 ounces which is about 1 gram per watt as I only used half the space in my grow area.

Overall decently happy with the high from this black d.o.g. Would definitely recommend others to give it a try as she is quite stable and recovers quickly when topped and defoliated. Very good strain for beginners.

Grow Questions
budsfromthesix week 3 started grow question 6 months ago
Hey guys had a quick question for you. I’m giving my plants about 500mls of water every 2-3 days and water when dry. I am currently growing in promix and I’m already seeing a few roots near the base of the plant. Is 500mls of water enough for a 1 gallon pot?

I think @Bulbi is right. For me and mine, by week 4 typically I'm watering 250ml about 2.5 to 3 days apart. Week One I use 15ml, Week Two 30ml, Week Three 60-75ml. I'll incorporate nutrients usually during week 2. Good luck

Hey guys hope one of you promix medium experts can help me out here. I was initially suffering from clawing due to watering at 6.3ph. Going to 6.5ph fixed clawing on pheno #2 but pheno #1 has not recovered. I tried not feeding for 2 weeks and still have issues.

Hey there Looks like what you are seeing on those leaves is the start of a phosphorus deficiency You might want to get a bloom booster supplement to help with that and when you feed make sure to do something like feed-water-water-feed and it should help prevent that from happening because sometimes it has it in the soil but does not have the time to up take it so when you give it more it creates a build up and the plant won't absorb it as easy. Happy Growing!!:pray:
budsfromthesix week 13 started grow question 4 months ago
So I am currently on day 28 of flower and seeing no new signs of deficiencies. I’m running the Sensi bloom schedule at half strength 800ppm. Should I up my feed if my plants aren’t showing signs of deficiencies or will not do anything and just cause salt buildup?

You'r half way and your Ec is 1.7 so I would push a bit with some more PK but really carefully to avoid over feeding issue. In soil I found out that 1.8 Ec was the average value in mid/late flowering , no need to get higher but some plants can takes higher level like 2.0 or 2.2 for some specific strains but not every strains likes heavy feeding.

@BarrieGrower, Thankyou so much man. It smokes nice right now but still too sticky for joints which is my preferred method of smoking. I will report back in 2 weeks :)
