Growing it

Blue Dream'matic and I had one of those loving but very trying mother/daughter relationships... But in the end, we love each other, and Blue came through with some super quality bud!

Her buds are covered in a glistening blanket of trichomes and smell of warm earthy citrus that bring the smiles all day long. :grin:

The high is a pretty hard hitter, instantly sending me an uplifting rush of relaxation and euphoria.

I have enjoyed this lightly (just a few hits) during the day with a fantastic, uplifting, energetic high that puts me in a playful and creative mood!

But I have to be careful... smoke too much and when the body high kicks in, I am so relaxed that it feels like body is melting into a cozy pool of happy and I can easily fall asleep.

I will say that this strain has been great for pain relief as well, making it a great evening strain to unwind after the day.

So despite the growing hardships, the quality genetics speak for themselves!

SMOKE UPDATE: Worth noting this is maybe one of the only strains I've ever smoked that hasn't given me dry mouth!

As she continues to cure, the smoke has gotten increasingly smoother, the flavor has further developed, and I am most definitely growing this again!

My husband has requested I move this one to the vault... He doesn't want to share haha!

Blue had a solid start right out of the gate. She grew nice thick, full leaves and was happy as a clam cake.... Until I decided to FIM :woman-facepalming:.

I had originally planned on topping her like her tent mate, but someone suggested a FIM, I had never done it before, so I thought, "Why not?!"

Well Blue didn't seem to like it all that much, and as she began to grow out I did a poor job of opening her up enough to get proper sub-canopy circulation. I think this was mostly due to a combination of me not knowing what to expect from a FIM in regards to its grow pattern and not having a clear vision of my end game from the start, and the fact that Blue Dream'matic seems to just be a generally "bushy" plant and my natural grow style didn't adapt quickly enough to due her justice.

Looking back now, I should have done a better job at doing a bit more defoliation than I did - but I found myself holding back once I had realized the stress I caused the plant from the FIM. That was a mistake.

Over the rest of her grow she took a nice turn for the better. I went through and stripped some of the lower buds and opened up her underbrush as best as I could. She ended up giving me some nice fat trichome covered buds in return.

I cut her down and hung her in my climate controlled closet holding 69.8°F and 55%RH. Six days later she was jarred up.

Blue Dream'matic gave me 85g/3.0oz of quality bud plus an additional 1.9oz of popcorn bud.

A day after being in jars I noticed the humidity in the jars was 79%, so I put the buds into some brown paper bags overnight, and this morning I let them get some more air. The buds being so large are sneakily holding more moisture than I had realized.

I'll update with my strain review once she's done curing. :v:000
