Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

I will report back more after it has dried and is able to be smoked better. I had a couple test buds a couple weeks out, and it was a pleasant smoke, with a definite cinnamon/spice flavor being prominent. Interesting to see after the whole batch dries and cures, as to if it changes much.

Nutrients

No problems with the nutrients. I probably overdid it in flower a bit, as I just followed the feeding chart vs actually letting the plant tell me how much to give. I have nothing to compare it against, but I am happy with the results. Giving 5 stars, only because there were no problems due to them, and I don't have anything to compare saying that something else would definitely be better.

She was harvested on May 26, day 143, on the 87th day of flower, after a 24 hour dark cycle. I hadn't pruned as well as I would have liked under the net (it was hard for me to manage), and it left a bit of underdeveloped, light deficient flowers. Not sure what will be done with them just yet, but they will be drying with the rest. I will update weights and everything else after drying has completed. No wet weights were taken (I just personally see little use in it when there is going to be extra stem and leaf material that will be removed after drying).

Edit: 6/1/19 - 233g of dried bud that was above the nets (good bud), and 109g of larfy, light deprived, under canopy bud that will likely be used for edibles or something else. Total of 342g flower in a 3x3 tent with QB lights. It is now in jars, and possibly jarred slightly early, but I figure I can easily burp the jars daily for 20-30 minutes, or more if needed, as they continue to dry/cure. In my mind, easier to allow to dry a bit more when in a jar than to over dry before jarring. Will update smoking characteristics in another week or 2, after some cure time has elapsed.

Grow Questions
buddha61 week 11 started grow question 1 year ago
If anyone actually looks at the temp/humidity monitor in my photos, you will see it goes from 40%s during lights on, to mid 50%s during lights off. Do I need to invest in a dehumidifier sooner rather than later, or will mid 50s during lights off not pose huge mold risks in flower

Hey Buddha61! Looking great:+1: The humidity is not to bad at all. As long as you dont get above 55% you should be fine you have a nice trained plant so as long as it is getting enough airflow you should be fine. Airflow is important because you can get "spots" that are more humid than others if it's lets say an area of the ten the fan does not get to or something blocks the wind from the fan. and it also helps if there is any spores trying to land on the plants if will blow them away! haha But as long as it stays below 55%RH you should be fine now if you do notice it creeping up higher than that then i would definitely look into a dehumidifier. Plus there are some other benefits of a dehumidifier. You are able to mimic the natural environment outside and lower the RH as flower starts. and it helps bring out more flavor trichome/resin production with the more "dry" conditions later in flower:ok_hand:. If you do invest in one what i do is start at 50-55%RH for the first 2 weeks of flower then drop it to 40-45% for the 3rd an 4th week. and after the 4th Drop it to 30-35% and have been getting fantastic results since starting to do it Hope this helps! Happy Growing:sunglasses:

@DrGreenThumb95, Thanks. Looking back, there are 3 areas which I wish I had done better. I wish I had did a better job pruning/defoliating under the screen, I wish I had filled the screen out more, and now knowing that it didn't stretch much, I wish I had let it grow through the net a week or so before flipping. It was still a good result, but I feel it could have been better (don't we all).
