Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

After one week of drying and two weeks of curing, the buds start to smell really nice. Also, the structure of the buds changed: they became more soft, while they were a bit raw (like sandpaper) at the beginning of the cure. The buds are very sticky, you really need a grinder to crumble them. I am amazed by the high yield of 254 grams from these 3 plants (excluding the trim and popcorn buds): I'd never expect a first grow like this to yield this much.

The high of Ceylin is well rounded, both a body and mental high; her smoke is smooth. After while, the high changes from more uplifting to a more relaxed, sleepy body stoned. Also, combined with tobacco, Ceylin delivers a strong body stoned. Very sedative and good to sleep on.

The high of Benthe is more energetic. A strong mental high, even when combined with tobacco. Also, smoking her buds, gives slight throat hit, but nothing extreme. That said, Benthe produced a bunch of bigger buds (5-10 gram each), while the other plants produced mostly smaller buds. I have only tried a few of the smaller buds, so there might be a difference in the high these bigger buds can produce. After a while, the stoned from Benthes buds settles down into a more relaxed and sleepy high.

I haven't had the chance to try Anna's buds yet. I'll expect them to be more energetic, as Anna got harvested a bit too early.

The strain is very easy to grow and can provide a big yield very fast. It doesn't need much, especially in the vegetative phase. When it switch to full flower, they need more, but I still never used more than 50% of the recommended doses (GHE FloraTrio). I accidentally topped Benthe 2 nodes down in week 4, while flowers were already showing. However, she produced the most and also she had relatively more big buds compared to the others. Hence, topping is highly recommended with this strain. It also reacts very good to LST: many side shoots make it to the top of the canopy.

I had no problems with mold or any other pests. I overfed in the vegetative stage and underfed in during flowering. Despite my mistakes, the plants still yielded a lot of quality flower. Very easy to grow, recommended for beginners.

You don't need much to provide to a small soil garden. Easy to use. No extra's needed. It's a great product for beginners.

Lights

What a great light: I'm pretty sure the big yield is mostly due to this light.

The final results:
Ceylin: 85 gram
Anna: 80 gram
Benthe: 89 gram
Total: 254 gram

Great yield! I'd never expected to get this much. And the many popcorn buds that went into the trimpile are not even included.

After about 5 days of drying, the I jarred the buds. At that time, they felt dry, but not brittle. RH in the pots went up to 59-64%, so I was in the sweet spot immediately. The first week, I burped the jars every day for about 15 minutes. Every other day, I removed the buds from the jars and rearranged the once on the top to the bottom and vice versa. The second week, I was on holiday and expected not to burp for 7 days, however, after 4 days, we had to return, because of a family emergency. The father of my spouse passed away at the beautiful age of 90 years. Since we returned, I burped the pots every other day. The cure is now going on for over 2 weeks and taste and smell are still improving. I'll burp them 2, maybe 3 times next week, and than only burp once a week for the next month.

All in all: what a great experience, what a nice hobby. I am extremely happy with the results and round 2 has already commenced: 5 seeds are germinating right now and my new diary will start soon.

This is one of the best diaries I've seen here, your set up is state of the art (I take note of the automatic fire suppression system, safety first) and my next grow will probably be Sticky Beast so I'll take this as reference. And I think we probably live in the same country, too, so odd.
Great job, amazing yeld! :clap:
