Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

Great yielding plants, great fragrance, nice frosty buds.. awesome strain overall. She handled stress well... I had a couple light interruptions and there were no problems with hermie. Responded well to defoliation and LST.

Ran 3 plants and each was a different pheno.. this wasn't an issue for me because I had room in my flower tent, but could be an issue for other growers. Phenos A and B flowered around the same time, both growing to about the same height, but have their own unique terpene profile. Plant C stretched about a foot taller, took about 2 weeks longer to flower, and is haze all day! If I were to grow this strain again, pheno/plant C is the one I would want. Really stinky haze with huge frosty buds.
*Edit 30 Day cure complete: Plants A and B more of a Lemon Skunk than a haze and C has the hazy/alcohol smell with lemon.. great scents and beautiful smoke. It is almost like I have 2 different strains, a Haze and a lemon skunk! The haze hits you in the face while the other 2 plants are more of a clear headed uplifting high.

Nutrients

I started this grow germinating 3 seeds I received as freebies from Barney’s Farm. All 3 popped and I moved them into a 10 gallon reservoir (coleman cooler). Week 3 of veg I topped at the 5th node and moved 1 of the Amnesia Lemons to a 5 gallon reservoir because I suspected it was a different pheno. Turns out I was correct and I pulled out Plant C which was the long flowering pheno (79 days). After 28 days of veg ( 7 germination), or 35 days total my plants were 9”(A), 8”(B), and 7.5”(C) and moved to the flower tent.
They grew well throughout flower. I had some nutrient issues, which I hope I will fix for next grow. I defoliated F15 and removed some fan leaves throughout flower, but I didn’t remove off anything too excessive after Week 3 of flower. I thought I was not feeding enough calcium and I am overfeeding slightly, but I think it has more to do with my feed ratios.. particularly my P and K ratios mid-late flower. I always assumed because I was burning my plants I was using too much bloom booster, hydroplex (0-10-6), so I slowed down on the usage.. but I think I need to increase the hydroplex and reduce my overall bloom nutrient usage (2-3-5) to even out my P and K . I am going to try and play with some of the ratio’s on my next grow and see if I can get healthier plants throughout.
I hung dried and I took a few arms of Plant C and placed them in a paper bag to see if I notice a difference in the dry/quality of the bud. I will be doing this for each of my future grows as I found it extends the dry time by a couple days. I was having some low humidity issues, but I let them sit in a paper bag for 2 days and they were the same dryness or possibly even had a little more moisture then when I put them in. It isn't something necessary, but it slows the dry process down to allow a better smoke and cure.

Grow Stats:
35 Day Veg w/germination - Topped and defoliation at 5th node week 3
64 and 79 Day Flower - Defoliation F15 - Removed some fan leaves throughout, but only to increase light penetration and airflow to middle of the canopy
End of Veg: 9", 8”, 7.5”
End of Flower: 25"(A and B) and 35”(C)
Yield: 168 grams (A), 118 grams (B), and 183 grams (C) – total 469 grams or 16.6 ounces… just over a pound
10 and 5 Gallon DWC – 2 plants in 10 gallon (A and B)
Lights: 260W Quantum Board x2 (Set at 90%) – ~480 Watts
Nutrients: Botanicare line – I have some minor issues, but they are simple, not completely synthetic and I get good results so :+1: !!

Grow Questions
Scuzzlebut week 14 started grow question 7 months ago
When you cure, how often do you open your jars? I open once a day for the 1st week, then every other day week 2, then week 3+ every 3-5 days. I think that it isn't enough and I can have better bud quality/smell if I open the jars more frequently. Thanks for your feedback! :facepunch:

I think that what others have already written, in addition to what you already do, is correct ... Everything depends on temperature and humidity in the area where you will perform the tanning / care .. Personally the best method in my opinion is the following ... I cut the whole plant and hang it with still the smallest resinous leaves attached .. when these are dry and the branches are about to break, I make a manicure in a workmanlike manner and then put the flowers inside paper bags brown (better then white) .. for a couple of days I open the bags several times a day and move the flowers a little..after two / three days (it always depends on t ° and ur) I put the buds in glass jars and for the first week I open and close two / three times a day at a distance of four / five hours / life commitments:sweat_smile: .. and as the days go by I go to climb with the openings until I think it is ok for my taste..i personally believe that the top is here while the flower is crunchy but resinous to the touch, almost damp, but when it is crushed the inside must remain solid, in general (when this is the case, every strain in smoke releases pure oil on the map) ... using the vaporizers if desired the times are reduced a lot because the flavors are already much more pronounced, even if the grass is still a little green (for example two weeks after cutting) ... to smoke it I wait at least a month and a half, and yet I don't smoking practically more, I always use it as the best and most truthful test method .... anyway I found a method that I saw on YouTube in the Verde Natural channel (I think it's a Colorado dispensary) interesting and well explained, and the guys seem to me quite experienced ... Lemon Amnesia fantastic:star-struck::lemon:.. excellent choice:ok_hand:...after three months in jar the haze flavor stands out in an incredible way..

I hope you can get the best flawor out of her..

Hope english was correct:pray:

That does look really good up close...….O'yeah my first one turns out thats the way for sure...not only did my Zkittlez #4 & #1 beat White Runtz from Seattle marked at 20.4thc....I left out a good gram or so I chopped up....meant to put it away...NOPE STILL SMELLS NICE SMOKES GREAT DIDNT TURN TO SHIT SITTING OUT OVER NIGHT.....its pretty dry in my basement this time of year....like under 40 unless I adjust it.....yeah I even had 58% packets in there first....I switched to 62%.....but if it smells good LEAVE IT ALONE CLOSE THE FUCKING JAR.....im telling you I tried it since people in CALIFORNIA DONT BURP 99 FUCKING PLANTS WORTH OF WEED.....so I tried it how they had it.....they dried and put in tubs tapped hem shut for like three weeks.......then we trimmed it and it was fucking SO GOD DAMN GOOD.....I mean 200lbs of HEADBAN and it was so yummy..the keif was GOLDEN YELOW.....so I tried what I told you to do.....now they are holding scent and flavor fully cured AND PEOPLE SAID THEY WOULD PAY 100$ a quarter or could sell it for $100....that tells me I did pretty fucking good my first time.....#1 was the RUNT and #4 was the original problem plant question you answered......

@Wilson_McNugget, I have decided to stay away from gorilla and straight up cookie strains.. it is hard to find a good cut of it, but if you do it's bomb weed... I will let someone else go through those struggles haha. Good to hear about the fastberry I want to take a look cause I have some autos that I've been waiting to pop, but they aren't much faster than the photos I grow, so there is no real advantage to me running autos right now. I haven't grown or smoked NL yet.... it's one of the strains on my list to try.

@Scuzzlebut, O'yeah I had a huge advantage my first try since I had multiple weeks of harvest....and tried different curing methods each time....for that reason it was good to have them spread out....also FAST BERRY SAYS ONLY GROWS TO 32 inches....YEAH RIGHT I have two at that or a little higher budding nicely...AND BEAUTIFUL REDISH PURPLE AT THE BASE OF THE PISTILES...….looking good....im going with STABALIZED genetics from now on so I can get the phenotypes they have isolated.....like Bruce Banner #3...or Northern Lights #5.....Girl Scout Cookies is Ghetto genetics.....not FAST BUDS...all GAC GENETICS ARE GHETTO....they dont open up right....they struggle to germinate some plants have horrible pheno types.....GSC IS LITERALLY GHETTO GENETICS...NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IT FOR SURE ….GSC came from BAG WEED mixtures.....its ok I won't grow it again.....actually im finished with autos.....im going to drop to 4 plants of regulars....of course ill have to start more and weed he males out....BUT 4 MONSTERS PER TENT....I could go 6 if I added more light......THE SICK FAST BERRY I TOPPED IS LOOKING AWESOME....she might get me an extra ounce or two when its all said and done.....BLUEBERRY IS MY AFTER DINNER WEED....im so tempted to use a flavoring.....but NOPE sticking to the test......I should harvest in 7-10 weeks....it will be a fast one this time...which is good no lock ups with CYCO....lower humidity less nitrogen has made the leaves look better on the fastberry….IM NOT WORRIED ABOUT FAN LEAVES....

@Scuzzlebut, try what I did....make sue they get a full dry on the branch.....then trim and jar TRY 58% packs....thats what I used on THE PREMIUM ounces.....after two weeks I upped it to the 62% mine has the perfect SPONGE REBOUND effect....still a little sticky to the fingers and smells and tastes OUT OF THIS WORLD....but thats after about a full month maybe six weeks I opened up FOR A SPLIT SECOND....no mold mildew or ammonia smell closed right away...NOW A BUD CAN BE LEFT OUT OVER NIGHT ITS DRYER HARDER BUT NOT OVERLY CRISP EVEN THOUGH [email protected] IN THE HOUSE...AND STILL SMELLS AND TASTES JUST THE SAME AWESOME......none of he others held the smell.....THE IDEA OF FERMENTING ALCOHOL IS TO ONLY RELEASE THE BUILT UP CO2 TO MUCH AIR AND J T E PROCESS STOPS.....I will never open a jar for more then a second ever again when curing...once a day first week once every other day second week then whenever you think about it a week or so later.....MY OTHER WEED NOT $100 a quarter...or even $330 an ounce....#4 & #1 only plants CURED LIKE THAT EASILY $100 A QUATER WEED....IF I OPEN A JAR IN STARBUCKS EVERYONE CAN SMELL IT.....thats always a good test.....or a Mcdonalds at lunch time.....people want taste and smell...well at least I do....most people pay $100 for garbage BEASTER GRADE thinking its KIND BUD cause its not pressed and its green...TRY THE McNugget METHOD.....it works per.....BEST TASTING WEED IVE EVER HAD....well minus some fresh killer kush...and really good original Bruce Banner......try it with at least one ounce....I TOOK A CHANCE DID THREE OUNCES OF #2 THE WAY YOU HAVE BEEN DOING IT.....like everyone else...and SIX ounces of #4 & #1 my new way.....IM GLAD I TOOK TE CHANCE TO FUCK UP SIX OUNCES AND NOT JUST ONE....then I would have fucked up nine ounces like #2 doing it the old way......MAKES MORE SENSE TO ME....JUST RELEASE THE STALE AIR AND CLOSE IT UP …..like fermenting alcohol....very little to no fresh air at all

Looks like a nice finish.....I flushed with TWO GALLONS each plant...saturated...they were so heavy after 48 hours.....I was just going to let hem go....TODAY I went to move a plant a bit and picked it up by accident......THEY JUMPED UP AND SUCKED ALL THAT WATER UP....I couldn't believe how LIGHT they were.....one GSC is 28's already....they are actually table topping themselves.....THE BOTTOM FIRST BRANCHES ARE THE ONLY ONES NOT LOOKING LIKE A PLUME OF TOPS.....looking very nice......WE WILL SEE CYCO BLOOM PROGRAM STARTED.....1010ppm FULL BLOWN FEED SCHEDULE....N,P,K's are grow 9/3/13 bloom 7/10/22...but if I used the Dr. Repair now also it would be 3 more N...…..they might want this phosphate Potash Plus just got added......WILL HAVE TO SEE.....the blue berry fastberry are looking great other then some fan leaves.....BUT SOME HAVE RECOVERED.....ONE PLANT 94% RECOVERED.....I even SAVED ONE...it and another were t e YOUNGEST and one Died didnt handle the tent malfunction....the other almost died...but I waited TOPPED HER waited..she started growing looking decent now....still really small...but should be alright....she got topped and fan leaves removed.....if she was shorter I would have teiid mainlining the plant......VERY EXICITED.....people LOVE #4 & #1 same phenome for sure...SO YUMMY after the nice cure.....BEST METHOD BY MILES....didnt notice you changed your name at first....

@Wilson_McNugget, I would only add more plants to reduce the veg time and let them grow out without much high stress training. I wouldn't want to top them while running more plants because that would defeat the purpose of running more plants because I would wait for them to recover. Not really sure about my grams per watt consistency.. this was the first time I ran 4 plants at the same time.. I always ran 3-4 for a perpetual, so any numbers weight numbers wouldn't really be accurate to calculate. I was at 1.2-1.3 grams per watt this grow, so I am happy, but definitely could improve. My next grow im going to stick to 4 in my 4 x 4 and top and see if I can improve my yield and plant health. I was checking out some darkhorse genetics, but I think im going to run some Humboldt and more Ocean Grown genetics soon.. maybe even thug pug.. they have a couple really nice strains I want to try out.

@Scuzzlebut, yeah thats a smart thing to do...never remove budding sites....IT DOESNT REDUCE YEILD LEAVING THEM IT INCREASES......as a reference that should be genetics based...like Kona Coffee plant you grow like a bush and it isn't until you kick over t e main stump after 7 years that you can really grow it right.....BUT UNTIL THEN..4 SHOOTS WITH HEAVY FOOD IS ALL IT CAN SUPPORT...standing up....laid over it can do eight shoots......a Columbian Coffee tree is like a Christmas tree ONE MAIN SHOOT....they don't handle pruning well at all....only shaping....WEED IS THE SAME....try this site...…a coop from Cali.....Darkhorse has awesome stuff....and this raspberry....im going to do Bruce Banner #3 and Roid Rage from Darkhorse Genetics.....some of the photo's now are GMO'd to grow like a bush NO TOPPING.....like fast buds autos....NOT TOTALLY HAPPY.....BUT THE GOOD ONES ARE GREAT ONES...….THE RAZ I think grows short...29% seeds will by my present to myself this year.....growing more plants doesn't mean more production....WATTS CAN ONLY PRODUCE SO MUCH...is you gram per watt pretty consistent???? Maybe grow one more plant at the same time.....add one at a time.....I THINK ABOUT ONE PLANT PER 4x4 all the time....BLOW ONE UP...plus an minus....less to fuck up but if you fuck up with ONE Zeverything is fucked up.....more plants easier to get premium weed...ESPECIALLY IF YOU DONT HAVE ISOLATED GENETICS....like guaranteed to grow BRUCE BANER #3......thats what im going to grow....Darkhorse created Bruce Banner....he is in this same coop

@Wilson_McNugget, thanks for the info! I will check out Lucky75 soon. So far I have had the most success with 1 topping at the 5th node and removing the bottom two arms to bring 8 main tops in and then all the side branches and stuff that develop I keep most of it because that is a lot of yield. Normally by the time the top recovers, the side branches caught up pretty good and ideally I throw her into flower 10 days or so after the top. I give each plant 4sqft and I was thinking of trying a grow with 6 plants, very little training and short veg time to let them do their thing and see if it is easier/more productive. Maybe I try that next grow and see if it fits my style/grow area.

Hey I forgot to mention this.....

WHEN YOU TRIM....DO YOU PUT YOUR BUDS IN A LARGE PAPER BAG????

see I was lucky to be part of the finish process in Willow Creek California...…

LIKE MY G.S.C. not fully dry....I JARED IT WITH 58% HUMIDITY PACKS....WORKED LAST TIME BUT I WAS A LOT DRYER.....

after I swapped to 62%...only a couple few days....BUT SMELLED GREAT PRETTY MUCH RIGHT AWAY....I NEVER OPENED FOR MORE THEN A SECOND TO SNIFF REAL QUICK....

BUT I ALWAYS TRIM THEN PAPER BAG IT.....WHILE TRIMMING AND AFTER FOR A WHILE....helps redistribute all moisture left.....

So this G.S.C. I Jared....well it was to wet....SO I SAID THIS NEEDS TO SIT OUT...…….WRONG TOTALLY WRONG......IT NEEDS MORE PAPER BAG TIME.....NOW ITS SMELLING AND TASTING GREAT AGAIN....

FORGOT THAT PART.....YOU NEED TO CURE FINISH DRYING IN A PAPER BAG AFTER TRIMMING....maybe one two four ten hours....

PAPER BAG IT ROLL IT UP LET IT SIT THERE....check every now and then....WHEN IT FEELS GOOD JAR IT AGAIN....

that should help retain smell and flavor better.....I do it automatically with out thinking.....USE PAPER BAGS....you can trim a pound in a bag....easy two fit.....every now and then check it and stir it with your hand....

Williow Creek method.....ITS DAMP THERE END OF SEASON.....RAIN SNOW COLD...LIKE 40's at night low 60's maybe daytime IF ITS SUNNY....

Wilson_McNugget

@Scuzzlebut,in Humboldt they chopped...hung dry....removed all fan leaves first...the buck it down to branches....to big to hang whole plant....after dried ENOUGH...they put it in huge five foot long plastic tubs and duct tape them shut.....they let it sit there for as long as it tales before it gets opened to trim......THEN IT GOduct tape them shut.....they let it sit there for as long as it tales before it gets opened to trim......THEN IT GOES IN THE PAPER BAG A POUND TO TWO POUNDS AT A TIME.....

Good trim comes out IN A NICE QUBE...BUT BREAKS APART VERY EASILY...bad trim just falls out...FINGER FUCLED THE TRICHOMES ON THE OUTSIDE....

but then it sirs in paper bags and gets put back in the same tubs and sealed....

Everyone's names on the bags they trimmed

Thats what we did with 200lbs well 180 after trimmed 99 plants....HEADBAN.....Willow Creek 2013

When it was trimmed you could smell it as soon as you got deep enough and the leaves removed...….then on its keeps perfect.....

Just avoid OPEN AIR....all the time after its dried.....UNLESS YOUR HOUSE IS 60% HUMIDITY....then it doesn't matter......mine is like 35% in the winter….60% in the summer....

I will let you know how this dry cure goes....IM STILL TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT...I DIDNT HARVEST THE PLANTS...THERE....I did that part in 2014 someplace else....up the other hill south pf eureka...….

@Wilson_McNugget, I didnt before, but I am going to start using paper bags more. I put a few branches of Plant C in a bag while I trimmed the rest. Trimmed it 2-3 days later I think and it was good.. a nicer slower dry. I jarred it right after that. I think the bag helps a lot. I am going to do what you suggest next time and paper bag after trim too.

So CYCO....im pretty sure is the reason #1 & #4 taste so good....my terp profiles are already really nice on these 6+ weekly plants....the Fastberry has a very interesting smell happening.....very nice indeed....and the GSC is well smelling like a sugar cookie...I SUPPOSE......but the [email protected] coming on stronger much earlier....and the LAST PLANTS last time got the most CYCO nutrients....that was finishing with the SPECIFIED LAST FOUR WEEKS OF FLOWERING NUTRIENTS ONLY THOUGH....I will start those in two weeks....im going to grow Photo's from now on...BIGGER YEILD...CONTROL WHEN TO FLOWER...BETTER TO TRAIN....CHEAPER LIGHTS RUN LESS.....TAKES THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME IF YOU WANT IT TO....no reason to grow autos.....JUST PLANTS that have been engineered to grow like a bush....like some REGULARS now are only hitting 45 inches....as well HIGHER THC WITH PHOTO PERIOD PLANTS...…….

PRODUCT REVIEW; STOP WASTING YOUR TIME CYCO IS WORTH IT......
