Great strain, easy to grow just add water.

Plants made lots of primo buds with tons or resin.

Great smoke and will post the review after the cure.

Would recomend and grow again.

Nutrients

Great nutrients, easy to use. I would use them again and recommend them.

The grow was good. Have to say start with great seeds, pay attention to all the small details and follow the nutrients directions.

I used my own soil mix from piecing together information on the internet. Kind of a bold move and worked out. Did not need to use full strength nutrients as I think the soil mix helped. I think the soil is forgiving and made it easy for me too.

PH the water and nutrients, found this out the hard way. Again pay attention to the small deatils.

Use the best lights you can afford. I researched lights for a month before deciding on 1100 watts of 3000k Timber Grow Cobbs for flower. The lights make up the difference due to my inexperience and produce great sticky, frosty buds. Great lights and can't say enought about them.

Harvested two plants early and waiting for the last two to dry to trim.

Wet trimmed the first plant and dry trimmed the second. IMHO dry triming seems to be better. This is both results and ease of trimming.

I was overwhelmed by the weigh in, the first plant was the shortest and yeilded 145 grams of dry primo buds, no popcorn. Second was the tallest and yielded 175 grams of dry primo buds. Had a bit of small buds and they were put with the trim. Have so many buds I quickly became picky, haha.

Still need to figure out what to do with all the trim. I have to figure it out.

I will post a full smoke report after the final cure. The pre smoke is great. Will also update the harvest report once the last two plants are dried and trimmed. The last two had some big colas.

Had a lot of fun growing and learned a lot along the way. I would recoment ASD to others and would grow it again.

Thanks for looking.

These last two plants took a long time to dry. Hung them for four weeks and got cauggt in a hot humid spell. Got mould amd lost a number of colas. these too a long time. Not really bummed out about it as the yeild was way more than I ever expected.

One plant was 180.77g and the last was 187.9. This came to an overall rotal of 688.67

Grow Questions

I have a question, when finishing veg and getting ready to flip to 12/12, should I flush or is this just a hydro thing? any input would be appreciated.

You should never have to flush unless your are over feeding.. if you have planted in an Amended soil like Fox Farms offers and many other brands you more than likely won’t have to feed at all during flower unless you have over 600 W worth of light. You can always follow
Feed
Water
Water
Feed
Making sure to renew your microbes every 7 to 10 days,Keep notes and adjust as needed I will tell you I see very very very few people not give their plants enough nutrients I see many new growers giving them too much. Too much will kill them, too little you can feed them a little and They will be fine in a couple days.
Hope this helps
FYI: that info is very opposite anything elese your likely to hear, but I assure you it is accurate
BarrieGrower week 10 started grow question 1 year ago
When doing defoilation I teilled off all the fan leaves except four at each top. My question is how much of the other branches should I trim off too?

Also, should you trim a bit at a time so there is not much shock or everything at once?

Any advice is appreciated.

Cheers.

Fun_Growin answered grow question 1 year ago
How much you defoliate / how many nodes you go into flower with has a couple MAIN factors,
1) what is your final light? Wattage wise
2) how full is your canopy? You want 85ish % of your canopy full when starting flower, if it is less full you will get more light penetration and can have some more on the bottom..

Check out my newest grow, look how aggressive I stripes those plants before flower, I’m about day 35 now and have a 12-14” canopy of all top buds..
Don’t be afraid to cut lower branches..the buds are never as big, they take energy from the top of the plant, and they are a PAIN IN THE BUTT TO TRIM!
Also.. if you take say 30-40% of your foliage off, then your plants can use the same light for another 2ish weeks untill you need more light again... less light, less heat, less problems...

Congrats to your Harvest, its a big success. you can do cann oil/ cannbutter with your trim. If you dont have time to do it atm put the trim inot your oven on 120 degree and let it dry and dtore it. And later you can work with it. Its very fast in around 30 mins you can dry a lot of trim. after this you can put them into freezer or paperbags to store

@BarrieGrower, iam using grapeseed or sesame oil in bio quality... in my diary "cookies for me" are reciepes for making Oil
For yummy edibles i like to use cocnutoil
and i never toss away the cooked out plantmeterial... i blend it and make some brownies or a cake or anything like that--- it still contains alot of heavy lifting stuff
i dont throw away anything on the plant.. ( maybe the rally big fanleaves, but all other leaves are frozen and get blend in a nice friutsmoothie, of i do green gin... ( without activating them....) so i have all beneficals in a high numbr without a high.. its pure medicne
