First FastBuds run and she was impressive as hoped!! She came on thick and fast from germination and stayed that way through to Harvest. Harvest was day 79. Suspect she could have ran 84 days, another 5 days, for the full 12 weeks. Had a good experience keeping her wet and pushing the her nutrient levels. She had a 17 day flush and smoke should be clean and smooth.

Products
Zkittlez Auto
Delivery to Spain
Zkittlez Auto is a popular autoflowering hybrid of Zkittlez with increased yield and growth. It has 23% THC. The strain will be good for relaxing on the couch or for meeting friends, because it balances well between the effects of sativa and indica. The variety needs a lot of watering and responds well to fertilizers, but the production of resin is huge. The main cola almost reaches the size of American footballs and has a unique triangular appearance. The variety likes fertilizers and abundant watering. It is recommended to use carbon filters because of the strong smell during flowering. Zkittlez Auto grows compact no more than 1 m in height. This is a good choice for any growers. The strain grows well indoor and outdoor and yields up to 300 grams after 9 weeks.

Nutrients

Voodoo and Piranha have been a huge help in root development and growth of side shoots. Used it mainly in early veg. Sensizym helps keep those roots clean and eats the buildup in-turn giving back food to the plant. Used it mainly in flower. Silica has been a noticeable difference in plant growth and strength. Once given she seems to shoot up taller and has move vigour. Rhino has worked very well even though the silica percentage listed is low. Just put her in the feed first before other nutrients and the plants will reward you!

GHE

Nitrogen is a 1 on this CalMag.

First run with this product line.....update to come

Great source of Kelp from this line.

First impressions are this is a very clean product line!! They are filtered very well and seem to have high concentrations as exceeding ~1,100ppm appears to push some girls into toxicity. In the end was down to running the base nutes at less than 1ml/L....time will tell on the impact. The plants definitely stayed green all the way through their grow. High Nitrogen all the way through grow as part you use the same bottles all the way through and part 1 is a 5 for nitrogen. Vitathrive was not added until late in the grow but was impressed with the plants calming response to these vitamins.

This was the first run of a FastBuds strain and I appeared to have picked a strain that works well with my grow style. She had nice wide indica leaves at the start of her growth and by two weeks over the sides of the pot. 3 gal seems to be a good pot size given her life span and her size. She flipped to flower as expected in week 4. From there she steadily gained weight in flower and was a struggle to keep her tied down with LST. Removing the lower bud sites on the side branches would also have helped to fill in her top colas so don’t be worried that she won’t fill in and you talk yourself into leaving them......cut them off:smiley::+1:She sets into a nice yellow fade on the leaves and the edges take on a purple colour. Add in red and orange hairs with everything covered in trichomes and she is a beautiful girl:star-struck::star-struck: Flush was over two weeks so expect a smooth smoke :crossed_fingers:

Will follow up with more as she progresses through drying. In the box with temp at 62 to 66 degrees and humidity at 60%. Branches are not that long so I am expecting dry should be around 7 to 10 days.

*******Updated Mar 7/20*********

Dry went okay and she was in there for 9 day dry, Feb 25 to Mar 5th. Will be waiting until she has roughly a three week cure before I sample anymore. Did a little for not just to test her out.

Further notes from dry and trim........

Should have fed her another week for increased density. Smoke is smooth so far, I don’t mind sacrificing weight for smooth smoke but not sure it was a needed trade off with this girl. Find out next run of her, which will be very soon:grinning::+1:

Her high is nice and strong. Not much sampled so far........rather say more to come in a few weeks......sweet and impressive so far!!!!

Again a real pleasure to grow and I see more opportunity to do better with this girl:smiley: Very excited to go again and will definitely be in the next auto run again. Love how she grew and looked!

Already ordered more FastBuds genetics and will see Girl Scout Cookies with another Zkittlez for sure!!!

More to come in a few more weeks..........cheers fellow growmies and much grower love to you all!!

Grow Questions
PrairieFrostGrow week 8 started grow question 8 months ago
Need to remove some leaves as it is starting to get a little dark at the lower sites......have seen different amounts removed from previous growers of her. Comments about how she reacts in last couple weeks? Go ahead and strip her fairly hard or keep slow over last days ahead?

Leaves. Too many

yes,I've just harvested one zkittlez.ccheck out my diary.it loves defoliation.whatever is blocking the light,I remove it.I do it throughout whole grow,except vegetation.It seems to be working better in flowering,especially early flowering just like your.And yes yours need to be defoliated some more by the pictures.I would start with lower fan leaves at bottom to create space for air circulation because you are in a tent,slowly go towards the top as time passes,later in flowering.

Congratulations! Looking forward to the numbers. I'm currently two plants of this strain myself. One is looking pathetic, the other one perfect.

@PrairieFrostGrow, thanks for your encouragement :grin:! I agree that my sick lady might turn out still better than expected. It is amazing that buds are swelling despite half of the leaves having died. I'm so much more careful with watering the other plants now...

Hi,
enjoyed reading your diary and great photos. Glad to see you are the patient kind and responded to what the ladies were saying and not what's written on the breeders seed notes about harvest times. Hope its a high quality yield and great smoke for you:+1::ok_hand:

@kitkat332986, Thanks very much. Patience is not an easy thing for anyone but it is rewarded as they say:smiley: Trying this girl out at 79 days and if the next girl cooperates the same, I will try her out a week longer and go to 84 days idea........will depend on the pheno though:+1:

Cheers and hope your buds are big and plump:grinning:
