Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Harvest Day 70 after a 2 week flush Finished in 48 hour darkness. I don't think the darkness increases production of THC/ trichomes but I do like the idea of letting the plant burn all of its sugars prior to harvest. Sugar is harsh when it burns so we'll have to check back on the smoke report when it's ready. She was a pleasure to grow again. A differently phenotype than her sister. The buds are much more dense and structured. The aroma is very fruity/berry with a sweet earthy funk. A beauty to look at too. Not a single problem throughout. I feel like this strain has always been love at first site.

I'll update on the smoke report once she's done curing. She's gonna be a beaut. Not as much as I wanted in dry weight but I think I'm gonna change my grow lights next round.

I don’t think it’s enough to notice either but Mark @DinaFemSeeds confirmed here recently they have grown and then tested for essential oil production, with and without extended dark periods, and their findings show a 2.5% increase in oil production on the plants kept dark for 72 hours.
That’s not much, but I’ll take it!
I have yet to test my theory- increase the dark period in increasing increments starting about a week and a half before harvest. So instead of 12/12 it’s 12/16
The next ‘day’ after that is 12/22
Then 12/30
12/44
By harvest the last day will be 12/72.
So many ideas and not enough time to explore them all! And for what anyway? Maybe a few % points. We sure love our hobby, don’t we?

Enjoy your harvest. Those flowers are all pro, sir!
