Overall she was a pleasure to grow. FastBuds definitely earned their name! The smell that was radiating from her was mouth watering. The buds ended up drying pretty thin and airy but that is completely my fault. I’m pretty sure I destroyed her with nutrients. Next time around I’ll be feeding much less and learn to use my PPM meter to get this down to an even better science. My space heater torched some buds so I definitely lost some weight. No excuses though couldn’t be happier that I have some FastBuds Pineapple Express! I’ll update with dry weight after a couple week cure. I’ll also update taste and smoke in a couple weeks after a nice cure. Probably add some more pictures!
Put some Christmas lights on her quick with a buddy of mine and we mixed a little video. Short and sweet! Merry Christmas GrowDiaries! And a happy new year!
Update week after harvest: Hung her for three days to dry. Then I jarred her but wasn’t in my curing zone. So I’ve been going back and forth with her leaving the jars open for 4-5 hours a pop. Yesterday I dumped her all out and let her air out for a little. I use a tiny hygrometer in the jars to check Relative humidity. I like my bud at 60%. Right now I got her to 65%. Another day or two of opening the jars for 4-5 hours and she’ll be in the cure zone. I’ll let her sit for a month (no doubt I’ll dip into it in a week or two for a taste test) popping the lid on the daily for 5-10 minutes. While I had her completely out of the jar I decided to do a quick weigh. A solid 151 grams. I’m impressed with that. She’ll lose a little more weight so that’s why I didn’t add it as the official dry weight. Also I said the buds were airy. I take that back jarring them early allowed them to puff up a little bit. Call it a Christmas Miracle!!
Update: So I finally got all the jars in my cure zone which is 60% RH going off my mini hygrometer. They are anywhere from 56%-60%. She weighed in with a whopping 144 grams. I am super stoked by that number. The 7 gallon pot paid off! She hasn’t gotten her pineapple smell back. I’m positive in another couple weeks she will regain it with a proper long cure. For right now I just get that skunk earth smell. So my analysis on the smoke as of right now is a super good one. It’s a very clean smoke already which surprised me. Usually a little bite with only a week cure. But it was hella smooth. The high is an amazing one. Not overly energetic but just enough! I almost felt a tingly feeling in the knoggin which I attribute to a euphoric sensation. I was in a creative uplifting energetic mood!This is perfect for the afternoon before you head out for the day. It definitely had me laughing and a permanent shit eating grin on my face. I honestly can’t say enough good things. I’m super impressed with the FastBud genetics and also can’t say enough good things about the FastBuds crew. Their representative on GrowDiaries is awesome. I had a bunch of questions for him and they were answered incredibly fast despite the huge time difference! If your a beginner and want a hassle free strain with experts backing you the whole way I highly recommend Pineapple Express by FastBuds. I’ll update one more time in the coming weeks. So I felt the need to explain the new pictures. I have a picture of the two bowls stacked on the scale. I hit the tare button to zero it out. I then poured all the jars into the bowl. Then boom 144 grams. Also the ft squared option for the box kinda confused me so I put my square feet in. So if that doesn’t jive I apologize. Anyone that wants to help clarify please feel free!

Final update: I grabbed a couple budds and took some pictures. So far the smoke is a great wake and bake for me. She hasn’t regained her pineapple smell YET! I have full confidence she’ll get a hint of that amazing citrus smell she had during flowering! I’m big on the cure so she’ll probably be in jars for the next 2-3 months. Like a fine wine she’ll get better with time! Well that’s pretty much a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this little trip. It for sure was fun as hell for me.

Update: So in conclusion. Super easy Grow. She didn’t give me any problems. Only problems were the heater torching some buds. I put her in a 7 gallon smart pot just to see what an Autoflower would do. Well she paid off and then some! Ended up with 144 grams of some primo FastBuds!00

Hi my friend. Your plants are looking great. I have a problem and I need comments from friends with experiences.

I'm feeling that my buds are so small, maybe they're not but I think like that. The feathers have started to turn into.brown and I think the harvest time will come after 15 days.

Will the buds continue growing up at that time? For the last, can you say anything abou the harvest time? I have added a video to my diary today.

Best regards. :hugging_face::pray:

Big ups on the harvest, I can't wait to see how the buds treat you after curing. What's next on your grow list? Also, would you recommend this strain as far as easy growing and bud production? Thanks bro

@Colorado, thanks I appreciate that! I highly recommend this strain. It’s definitely a high yielder with the right treatment. The smell is unbelievable it really is mouth watering. She took everything like a champ and was forgiving of me over feeding her(rookie mistake). That was my first fastbud grow. Im going to stick within there line of strains and grow them out. I want to do a color changing bud next like LSD-25 or Blackcherry. Not sure yet. I built my box so I was thinking about tearing some of it down and making more room so the space heater doesn’t tear up buds. Not sure yet. Gonna make that decision after New Years.

@TeflonDonFarms, Thanks man! I've tried the Green Crack and GSC from Fastbuds, but I had always wanted to try Pineapple Express because of the movie lol. I felt the strain might help me relive my college moments, plus it'd be dope to smoke that and just watch the movie truthfully. I hear LSD is up there on the THC scale, I'm not sure about the BlackCherry I haven't seen that one yet. Also, what do you mean color changing LSD strain? Does it turn purple during color temps at flowering?

@Colorado, For sure! My thoughts exactly I love that fuckin movie. Definitely gonna toke up and watch it!!!! A lot of the strains FastBuds offer give off unique colors. But some of them steal the show like LSD-25. Do yourself a favor and check out their website. I believe week 5 or 6 you start noticing a change in color. I like to surf FastBuds harvests on GrowDiaries and see what I’m getting into! I didn’t look close enough into the diaries to see if they changed their temps. I’m leaning towards no they didn’t.

This is a KILLER looking grow. I see some experience shining through here. Nice job! I am attempting my first "topless" SCROG (trying to bend instead) with 6 different strains right now, of which one strain is FastBuds Pineapple Express. It would be cool if you would follow along and make a suggestion or two. - Zannabis7

@Zannabis7, Thanks for the compliment she sure was a lot of fun to grow! Not to much experience at all here.Your grows look awesome down to the strain labels. Good luck with everything. I’d suggest something but it looks like you got it more than under control! Enjoy yourself!
