Growing it

Pretty much top notch genetics. Really energetic Gorilla Glue crossed with GSC Thin Mints, a heavy hitting pheno with Kush genetics. It will put the most experienced smokers out of commission.

The trio is easy to use for a new grower. I would find a basic feeding chart and use 1/4 of the recommended amount.

My first harvest exceed expectations several times over. I was hoping to break even for the initial investment in lights and tent, but ended with over 6 ounces of medicine.

After drying for a week, the hay smell is receding to cool, earthy pine. When crushed, she gives off a pronounced sweetness that one could derive from a basket of mandarin and mint. The smell is intoxicating.

She smokes really smooth from low nutes, and a week long flush. The sensation is more for experienced smokers. Let me try to explain::

On the come up, the sativa driven Gorilla delivers an energetic rush of euphoria and clarity. He appears to be in a panic, because he brought with him a gift of wild thin mints that quickly dissolves all forms of anxiety. The Indica leaning GSC pheno induces a healing wave of sleepiness that is characteristic of its most powerful Kush ancestors.

See you space cowboy.

Philindicus answered grow question 5 months ago
I think it would be better to try to keep the size around 2x3 to make sure you get enough light intensity to all the buds. The bud density will suffer if there isn't enough light. You would probably have to add a second light to supplement your 300 watt to get enough light to do a 2x4.

Do you guys know any tricks to get my plant to grow taller? Goal is to increase space in between nodes. I've tried raising the LEDs to 30 inches for a few days. Also tried leaving it in complete darkness for 24 hours.

Hi @NASATrainer! What makes plants stretch: 1/ dark cycles, you can increase your night duration up to 14 hours with 10 hours of light, 2/ nitrogen, you could add some more Nitrogen during the stretch phase, but be careful not to over-do, a plant stunted with Nitrogen during flowering will result in weird buds or 'the claw'. 3/ plant-to-lamp distance, increasing this value should result in vertical growth, as the plant will look for more light. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Any ideas what is causing some pistils to turn brown and crisp on my lower bud sites? Especially the ones in the middle of the crater. Taller bud sites not affected, and leaves are healthy.

Hi there @NASATrainer your plants are fine the browning off of pistils is a completely normal occurence and will continue as the buds mature. If they were all to suddenly change colour then you could have experienced pollination but I don't beleive it's the case with your your plants. Best of luck with the grow Mate

Purple leaves -- copper deficiency due to pH falling below 5.0 for a few days? Or natural color coming out due to light and age? Thoughts?
Color Dark or Purple Leaves

I think she is beautiful! Looks like she is reaching the end of her life cycle fading out nicely. The leaves are heavy on nitrogen though. I would cut all of the nitrogen out of the feed if you havent already. Looks like she is close and going to be some killer smoke.
