Had a very slow start with this one that probably set back my entire grow. I think I had the humidity too high for the first few weeks. She recovered well though in the end.

I found that the buds weren't as dense as I would have liked and this is could be due to my phenotype being more of a Sativa than Indica. Also I probably wasn't aggressive enough with my defoliating either. I also never smelled any cream or cookies. Currently mid-way through the cure there is a strong pine smell with woody undertones. I have smoked piney bud before and it has been very good so I don't think this is bad, however its not really what I expected from this strain.

My initial smoke report before curing is that it has a pleasant taste and isn't harsh. Shortly after smoking I felt very happy and was grinning away. Then I enjoyed watching some videos and felt generally quite relaxed. This is probably the most chill smoke I have ever had, however I don't have a huge experience with different strains. Would be really good for de-stressing in the evening.

The day after harvest I went away on holidays for 10 days, so I was a bit worried about the drying process. I put the bud in a cardboard box as you can see in the photos, with an inkbird humidity monitor attached to a fan. When the fan was off there was no ventilation through the box. When the humidity got over 70% it would put a gentle breeze through the box until it got down to 65% and then shut off until it went back up above 70 again... When I returned home the humidity in the box was 59% so it didn't get too dry!

The buds have lots of trichomes on them but they are a bit more airy and leafy than I would have liked, I think perhaps there were too many small bud sites the plant was putting its energy into. Needed to prune more aggressively to just have a few main bud sites.

It is droopy from too much moisture in the rockwool. Rockwool is bad about sufficating seedlings and retaining too much moisture. You can place the cube on a paper towel or something similar to pull some of the moisture out if it to get some oxygen to the root. You have to be really careful until you get roots appearing from the bottom. Once a root comes out then the chances of suffocating are reduced a lot. Hope this helps

Can anyone tell me how many weeks left I might have until harvest? I am planning a holiday and need a rough date to work with! I am happy to harvest a little on the early side when trichomes are all cloudy. If a few people could put their best guess I can average them, thanks! :pray:

How long until I can start to flush? I want to time it for the early to mid harvest window. I am in CoCo so will probably flush for 7-14 days?
I think a lot of the trichomes are now cloudy, a good 75% I think. Very rare ambers, less than 1%, most buds with none.

Give them one more week with plain water only to let them breakdown some last nutrients. Then give them a good flush to rinse everything out of the pot and let them fade till harvest.
