Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

This plant displayed the typical Laughing Buddha genetics: easy to grow, vigorous sativa, large yield. Overall, it is as I expected!

The individual plant came as a puny, little, malformed monster cropped clone. It resisted light damage early on and rebounded. It still reached a nice potential, though I wonder what it could have become had I not heavily defoliated and then lost leaves early in flower. I clearly created a nutrient imbalance to turn the leaves yellow, but Buddha normally takes lots of plant food.

I struggled to nail the taste down this time. It gives off a sweet, fuel like smell, but I find characterizing it as more elusive than my previous Buddha grows. I found the taste did not come out quite as much as my previous grow, likely on account of the restricted potential of the buds. I also suspect some of the dead trim that was hard to cut off also adds to its blandness. This was the major factor scoring this round as a 8/10, and the last Buddha plant as 9/10.

It is sativa dominant, nice and potent. No issues with the THC content with this individual plant, still a very nice product.

I still maintain that Barney’s Farm Laughing Buddha is an elite strain. All my grows (past, current, and future) have been from the lineage taken from one seed. The yield and strong sativa qualities are worth it!

Because the leaves yellowed/died so early in flower they dried up and became crunchy. This was a pain to trim and generally ineffective. This effected the final taste and overall trim job.

This was a good example of the ineffectiveness of major defoliation/lollipopping. The defoliation wasn’t a big deal, but when I mucked up with nutrients and it lost some leaves, it therefore lost ALL its leaves. So it died a slow death over the weeks until the end. I flowered it for 9.5 of the typical 10 weeks.
