Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

The strawberry mango haze super auto turned out to be a successful but long first grow. I'm sure I made plenty of newbie mistakes and probably overfed and over or under watered a few times. I got pretty freaked out at the end because I think that bud rot was starting. Which may have been paranoia.
She smelled amazing when I chopped her at first. Very sweet!
The plant grow with very little internodal spacing and that made the branches nice and full. The stems were strong and held the weight of the buds well. It didn't seem to be too fussy about nutrients or anything.

Nutrients

Being my first grow, I have no comparisons. But these kept my plant happy throughout it's life.

Overall, I think this grow turned out pretty well. Considering all of the stuff I probably did wrong. I learned alot in the last 4 months with her and feel more confident in my growing abilities. I had no idea when I planted my first seeds that there was so much that goes into this. I spend way too many nights lost in research about the growing process or nutrients. But that is probably a good thing. I'm glad that this strain was super resilient and made it a whole 130 days to harvest. I wish I was better prepared for the drying process, that's probably my biggest mistake. I just hope that i end up with "pretty good" smoke when it's all said and done.

Update

After curing for 3 weeks I still don't have a whole lot of great smells happening. It smells amazing once ground up. This girl tastes just like FRUIT LOOPS! So sweet and yummy! When I smoke it I get an overall sense of well being and a nice, slightly energetic high. It's a good day time smoke for me. I have a jar with a boveda 62% pack stashed away for a few more weeks. Hoping to get a more full flavor. It's cold in the basement, like 58-63F. So maybe it's just lengthening the process a bit. (A girl can hope, right?)

@PigBearMan, I'm nearly sure I messed up beyond repair. So sad. I have a great smell when I grind it up. Very sweet still, but has a more "weed" like smell than a few weeks ago. I've gotten the taste of fruit loops.
But there's still a bit of that hay smell when I open the jars. I don't think it will go away completely, but it isn't too off-putting anymore. The smoke is seriously the smoothest smoke I've ever had. Not even a tiny bit of harshness, even with huge hits. So I'll call that a win. I didn't ruin it completely.

This is a KILLER looking grow. I see some experience shining through here. Nice job! I am attempting my first "topless" SCROG (trying to bend instead) with 6 different strains right now. It would be cool if you would follow along and make a suggestion or two on the grow. - Zannabis7

@Zannabis7, thanks dude! Not a whole lot of experience here, honestly. Just many nights on Google. Reading and trying to figure out the basics. I'll totally check out your grow. I'm still very much a newb and may not have a whole lot of educated suggestions though. lol.

@Ping420, Thanks for the support. Seems you and I are fairly new to growing, but we have both done our fair share of google research. That can go a long way. Thanks again..
