Awesome stuff coming from Mephisto. :ok_hand: Wow! I am so impressed with this grow. The price of these seeds is worth it! It was really cool to me to grow something new that had not been grown much before. I did not know what to expect and that added a bit of excitement to it.
This is a very frosty plant and based on my research on this site grows extremely consistently so again, props to Mephisto. I do not claim to be a breeder but I am aware than when a strain is that stable, it is because of top notch breeding practices. Strong work!
The smell is very hard to describe. It is not super strong but when you get right up and smell the buds, it is like an extremely concentrated sweet smell. I read on another diary that it reminded someone of a wine smell and I would say that is the closest thing I could say.
The only drawback (or strength depending on who you talk to) is that the strain seems to only grow to be around 10-15 inches tall. I have a lot of vertical space that I would really like to have used but oh well, they packed it on thick. I bet space bucketeers would absolutely love this plant.
For some reason the plant grown with organics had bud rot and I lost 10g of product in the top cola. The rest had no sign.
See more details in the Chilly Cheese Dog Review. :wave:
It has been about a month and a half cure. The smell is fantastic but hard to describe other than it smells just like classic GG4 which I am pretty happy with. I liked both of my plants but I prefer the smell of the organic plant to the AN plant. The high is a heavy body high with some nice feeling sprinkled in there. My testers preferred the GG to the CCD. Great stuff overall! Thanks Mephisto!
The next frontier for me will be bottle free if I can. I want to try out no till organic growing. For some reason that style just really seems like it would compliment the way I like to treat these plants. It is also amazing to me how easily you can source some of the ingredients that are so expensive when they are suspended in solution for some reason. Over the past several weeks I have learned so much about Cannabis by studying all the different available elements/how they are used, the soil food web, garden products, etc. I will not be that guy who says one method is better than the other. My favorite part of this hobby is that it is so versatile and can be changed to suit any need from a 5 gallon bucket to a 12' tree. It is all about finding what works best for you and what you enjoy.
My goal moving forward is to grow the highest quality medicine (subjective) for myself with the least amount of maintenance effort required, for as cheap as possible. My plan is to buy a commercial grade ~1000W LED, dial in super soil (costs pennies on the dollar to make only plain water needed), and automate my environment to optimum levels which should then allow me to produce quality medicine and reach my goal.
My next grow will not be for a long time unfortunately but hopefully not too long! I am most likely going to grow some CBD strains and some of the new Mephisto Lines as well!
This one felt really good to pull off. I had some seriously rough grows these last few times around and I have learned a lot of very valuable lessons that I will not forget.
Thanks to everyone who tuned in along the way. This is an awesome community, website, and I love posting my updates every week. Big shout out to my boy El Don :fist:, @Kronickobe, @Alaskangrowncaliraised, @Thefairybudmother, @B4RNS, @Meibabies, @Mephistogenetics, and of course @Growdiaries!
