Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Well, the harvest was nothing short of incredible. I really had no sense of how much bud was actually sitting on the plants, until I decided to harvest, and started taking each plant one by one to disassemble them into individual branches, and then trim off the leaf. Each plant was an absolute joy to manicure, and each plant was composed entirely of mature fully developed frosty swollen buds from top to bottom. There was no popcorn, or any fluff buds at all. The photos for this harvest week were taken moments before each plant was taken for harvesting. The final image is one taken from above, over all of the manicured buds on stems. Each plants worth of stems is organised into piles., Each of the 8 piles of buds represents one of the plants that were until very recently, growing in this tent.

Just from looks alone so far, I would say 95%+ of all of the buds are fully matured, dense, trichome laden examples of the optimal Gorilla Glue Bud. They took on some amazing autumn colours during the final week flush, and the intense petrol like sweet smell was almost overpowering when one was sat amongst all of the colas.

All in all, I think there is far more bud here than I ever predicted based on the grow I had. Even after all the mistakes and catastrophes, and even after stunting, wilting, nute lockouts and every other newbie mistakes, I think I managed to dial in the environment well enough in the last half of the growing cycle to product was looks to be, by far and without exception, the single largest pile of exceedingly high quality dense dank nugs that I personally have ever had the pleasure of beholding. Fucking Excellent.

The dry bud weight was 562 grams, so just over 20oz from 8 plants ao 1.17g per watt, which is below my target range of 1.6-2.6g per watt, but given the issues during the grow, and the fact it was my first, I am still stoked.

Nutrients

The Flairform nutrient range seems to have performed well. Apart from some Cal/Mag issues at the start of the growth, which could be addressed with Epsom Salt Foliar sprays. That said I am keen to try different, coco specific nutrient ranges.

For my first grow I'm really happy with an outcome of just over 20oz (562g) of really great buds. This strain grew really well and the whole grow process was a total pleasure. I look forward to many more Fastbuds grows in the future. My next one that is just about to go down is Blackberry! The Quantum lights are amazing, and a really great investment!

Grow Questions
ProfessorSkiSlopes week 4 started grow question 7 months ago
Hi there, does anyone have any idea what the slight mottling is on the leaves of two of my plants. There are close-up pictures under Day 27 in Week 4. The discolouration is present across multiple leaves, but seems to only be happening to two plants out of 8. Thanks!

I suspect the mottling is a combo deficiency between Ca and K, though I'd go so far as to say that both look minor so maybe not try to fix either. If you're using nutrient salts you can isolate a specific element to tweak, but most nute brands have multiple things mixed in the bottles so if you tweak any thing, you end up tweaking several things which will cause other problems.

If interested, I made a tutorial for using Hydro Buddy to reverse engineer your nutrients, then you would be able to play around with tweaking the nutes in theory before actually changing anything in practice.

@ProfessorSkiSlopes, there is so much to be learnt by the experience of growing! There's already so much I would do different next time and I'm not even half way through my first grow :P

I'm looking forward to seeing how what you've learned benefits you in your next grow!

@Cheezy, Thank you very much! :) I really enjoyed growing these plants even though I made a bunch of mistakes, I learnt heaps from doing it, and it was a brilliant smoke (a bit to much sativa for me but still great).

Wow:astonished: Amazing results. :+1:

@smoking_hills9, Thank you very much! I'm pretty sure I could get the yield up by another 30% with a more experienced grow. This grow was my first and had a few catastrophes. I've learnt a bit from this and subsequent grows, and I have another 10 Gorilla Glue seeds that I will be using to test my hypothesis after I get another 2 or 3 grows under my belt.
