Resistance

Neutral

The Fast Buds Gorilla Glue auto really took off in the vegetative stage and was very easy to grow. She demonstrated very tight inter-nodes in veg and exploded with side branches with careful LST/ pony-tailing. Her leaves looked almost sativa in nature even though she is advertised as indica dominant. She was doing well in the first week of flower and then demonstrated a nutrient deficiency the 2nd week of flower. Im not sure if it originally was a "nutrient lock-out" or cal-mag deficiency, but she had trouble recovering. Overall, the problem stunted her growth and robbed her of some yields. I personally ran into a frustrating problem where I could not get cal-mag for a couple of weeks due to a delivery issue and at that point the deficiency was really tearing her leaves apart. Even with the doses of cal-mag finally and several flushes, she only showed minor signs of recovery in the final 2 weeks. Her buds still came out very indica oriented (quite dense) even though her phenotype originally was sativa dominant. She actually does smell very similar to the adhesive part of Gorilla/Duct tape, and only mildly smelled of weed in my room. I would like to try her again once I get a little more experience under my belt.

Smoke update: She has been curing for a while now and is starting to come along nicely. This is definitely a strain that really never hits its peak potential without a nice long proper cure. 1 month in and that grassy dank chlorophyll smell is finally gone. Now she smells piney with a smooth vanilla background and hint of lemon. Once you crack her open though that lovely glue smell takes over. She was a little harsh on the throat in the beginning but has developed a nice smooth piney/woody taste with just a drizzle of lemon smoke. She will never smoke as silky as the blackberry but thats because I couldnt flush her long enough.
The high is relaxing and mellowing but I do not feel couch locked at all (i couldnt let the trichs get >5% amber on this round due to problems). Smoking excessively can really bring out the giggles. Definitely a high that allows you to still be functional during daytime use.

Nutrients

Big Bloom:

She handled Big Bloom well especially because of its organic nature. I cannot accurately say anything else in regards to this product due to the cal-mag deficiency and confounding factors

Grow Big:

She does well with Fox-Farm nutrients but I would advice to flush her and THEN feed her Big Bloom and Tiger Bloom and a touch of Grow Big 20 minutes after her flush. This way her roots are really ready and raring to go for nutrient uptake, yet she wont show premature signs of flush with chlorophyll changes in the leaves (green chlorophyll maximizes photosynthesis and therefore the amount/intensity of energy for bud formation).

Tiger Bloom:

She never reacted negativel to this product but again, I cannot accurately say anything else in regards to this product due to t

Cal-Mag Plus : DEFINITELY a plant that required an extra boost of calcium/ magnesium:grinning::grinning::grinning:

This is NOT a plant that I would recommend for a beginner she can demand much more attention without reciprocation, which was frustrating for my FIRST EVER grow (woohoo!). She is one that I have had a little bit of trouble growing and others on this site Ive researched have had trouble growing. She is a little more sensitive to nitrogen and other nutrients yet gulps cal-mag.
