Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Such a fantastic and frosty strain. Theres a reason why I've kept this strain around in my garden for almost two years now. She's absolutely amazing. She has a very lovable sweet smell with a robust and potent high. She's everything you'd want and more from a potent monster such as herself. 3 thumbs up in my opinion. I love this strain to death and I'll be even more excited the next time I harvest it.

Nutrients

Again the fox farm nutrients did their fair share of the work in this grow. Their products always make for balanced ratios that are also PH balanced to keep your plants healthy. Top notch lineup from them as always.

Bet Cal-mag on the market in my opinion. Not a bad source of Iron either. Always a great addition to any garden when you need to use a supplement such as this.

As advertised for sure. Definitely gave my plants a more heightened smell and terpene profile. Didn't change anything about the flavor or smell either. Just strengthened my plant and helped it produce more.

DISCLAIMER: 3 plants were harvested in this diary under 225 watts of lighting from one 225 watt Cree Cob LED. Because grow diaries algorithms are incorrect for some reason the website lists the grams per watt incorrectly because it divides the number of grams/watt by the number of plants. In this case it causes my grams per watts to be 3 times lower than what it actually was so I have listed the wattage as 3 times less then it actually was. I apologize if this causes anyone any confusion but It's the only way to have my overall account information to be correct in my profile.

Just wow. I couldn't be more happy. 226.8 grams. I officially achieved 1 gram per watt. I must first start by saying that it's probably all the light. This thing is absolutely amazing. I've seen several growers online post verified yields of 1.5 grams per watt of COBs and some even higher unverified claims. I still have much to learn and improve on to get to those kind of numbers but I'm definitely thrilled with my harvest here. This strain is one of my favorites and I'm happy to have gotten a decent yield from her this time around.

I must say the I will only be building my own COB LEDs from now on in the future. These things do some serious work and I'm thrilled to see what they can really achieve with their awesomeness. I hope everyone enjoyed following along for this grow. I'm blown away by how much difference the COBs make. I'll be excited to try more grows with them. Thanks for stopping by.

Very nice Diaries I do have a couple questions. Would you say the density is equal to that of your HPS? And if I may ask what lights are you using brand-wise?

@Floresdejesus, You might want to ignore this troll. He measures light efficacy in LUX:joy:. He has some points but they aren't justified in science. How effective a light is at producing buds size and density has everything to do with the PPFD of PAR spectrum the plant receives. More specifically how effective the light is at generating an even PPFD over a specific distance. HPS is effective at generating PPFD over a great distance. Sometimes in excess of 2 feet or more. Cobs are more efficient at generating PPFD per watt but the distance at which they are consistent with that distribution of PPFD is only 1 foot... sometimes 18 inches. It's all about how you are growing and what you intend to do. If you want a big full canopy with multiple tops making light penetration impossible to the lower lollipops areas you'd want to use COBs or LED to achieve your results. If you want to grow a tall monster and have buds growing all over the plant including the lower branches then you'd probably want to use HPS. It's all about purpose and use. HPS is less efficient but has great results. COBs are very efficient but only work as intended if you grow your canopy/plants a certain way. It's all about preference. It's a scientific method of course.

@DabCrab, thanks for the insight. he did leave me a bit confused. But thanks for the clarification. I personally use led to start from seed they work great for seedling stage. Then t5 for teens then hps with the led as a side dressing.

@Floresdejesus, I'm happy I could help at least attempt to clarify a few things. HPS does great work in regards to growing plants. I use T5's myself for a small veg tent I have. It's nice to keep things simple and efficient. No need to pump 1000's of watts into a few seedlings when they aren't capable of using it. I believe the studies show that until the plants get some serious height they aren't really capable of using more than 25 - 35 Umol per day. Whatever you use to do your growing needs all that really matters is that you follow the respected science in regards to what the plants want and need. Which means a good PPFD and VPD.

Oh man this grow was fantastic. Iโ€™ve heard Great things about COB LED. Seeing how they performed on your grow itโ€™s a no-brainer that I need to invest in these eventually. Awesome Grow man.

@Chunkmasta1, Thank you very much buddy. I wish you success in your grows as well :D

Well said. Same science has proven it why try to reinvent the wheel. Although i do use a LED to sprout. I have done the side ny side strains and the LED does have its advantages in the infancy stage imo. Its all debatable thats why we have joints an beers to discuss!

@Floresdejesus, Indeed. LED's are advancing so it's difficult to gauge them all as one thing. Each product varies differently these days so all of them are up in the air for what really works and what doesn't.
