Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Yield was much higher than expected for my first plant. It tolerated extreme screen weaving very well. Scent was not strong throughout and even after curing. I might have waited a little longer for slightly fuller flowers.

High yeild strain. Not the prettiest end product, but does high THC content in the bigger nugs. Would like to wait a week or so longer next time to see if it would fill in a little better.

This was my first grow and wanted to ensure a rugged, high yield strain. For those reasons, this was an excellent strain. The biggest problem I had with the seed was getting it started. I only rinsed my rockwool for a few minutes before planting and then adjusted the pH a few days later which may have lead to the 1 week germination, otherwise the growth timing seemed to be very consistent with other growers using this strain. This was grown in my higher end setup with 400W metal halide 24/0 during vegetation and 20/4 during flowing with a 400W hps. Great ventilation with humidity and temperature controls and the drip system worked really well. Too well. I grew this one plant so big I had to refill the hydroponic system every day during flowing because it was going through so much water (1-2 gallons a day). With everything else working so well, I'll have to use a larger reservoir system on the next grow. I would also top on the next grow and did not top this time because I did not want to hamper grow, which was not a problem. I also did not prune any leaves until harvest week. I would prune some of the older darker fan leaves next time to make room for newer growth. The ScrOG setup worked just fine and was a key element to the high yield and even growth. All my grows will incorporate a ScrOG technique. The only part of the nutrients I'll be revising in the future is changing out the Flora series with Kind series. I have no issues with the Flora series, but will be alternating brands to see which one works best with this type of combination. Any suggestions would be appreciated and I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Looks like shit, root rot, res too small for that plant, gl with ph swings and water temp issues, that's why you got root rot, Build a better system or get a bigger reservoir, maybe flush your bud next time, way too green to go into my pipe, gonna be a harsh smoke, crackly throat burning black ash bud right there, need 2 week minimum flush even in hydro, buds look airy and premature, maybe drop your light lower, or get a better one, Jarred wet weed with bovedas, thats a big no no, 79% in the jar with a 62% boveda, take that stuff out and dry it more, gonna mold in that jar, or PM, you choose, also gonna turn to a musty dank basement smell jarring that soon, if you jarred early that means you weighed wet, cut that weight in half IMO cause your yeild isn't what you say, its still wet, Good Luck, you're gonna need it.....alot of it

@Bountykiller420, thanks for the Karma. Root rot never took hold after adding Hydrogaurd. Did 1 week flush. Drained the system many times until ppms down to 300 or so. Agree reservoir too small for such a Large plant. Lights were as close as possible without burning which one center bud started to do. Dried for 1 week until stems snapped. Definitely wasn’t wet and agree very green. As mentioned, I would wait longer next time for a more mature plant. Thanks for the Constructive Critizism.
