Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

My first grow so I can't compare to any other grow experience. So glad I have a couple more seeds of this strain to really get her to it's potential.
Really messed up trying to grow in DWC set up for my first grow with organic nutrients. I really thought I could pull it off but the organic nutrients made it difficult to keep things from clogging and cleaning.
Root rot got to it and decided to put into soil, the plant did really well going through this process, rating resistance strong.
Massive learning curve; from watering to nutrient dosage, light distance, humidity adjustments, knowing when to harvest, flushing, drying and curing. Learned so much from this. Def need to improve and learn more in all areas to get the yield and quality desired.
Cured for 2 weeks before trying. Was a harsh inhale. I don't think I flushed enough. Maybe even over dried, as well. Weak smell and not really sticky at all. Taste is hard to describe, just too harsh for my liking. Kind of disappointed, I only blame myself for not knowing how to properly do these things. Grow and learn
Got Boveda packs and will cure a couple more weeks and try again. Hoping the smell and taste will only get better.
Mephisto Genetics reposted one of my pics to their Instagram account!! A little instafame there, pretty cool being first grow.

UPDATE: 4 weeks of curing

Just an update, I did got to cure Tyrone a couple more weeks and what a difference!! Much much smoother, tastier and happier!! Curing and tasting at different stages is a great way to learn new things! Glad I saved some to cure out longer. Can't really pinpoint flavor profile, definitely tastes fresh!

Nutrients

Advanced Nutrients selling points for their organic line do not match up with product. This is only based on the nutrients I have used here; Iguana Juice Grow, Iguana Juice Bloom and Big Bud Organic. These are premium products and I believe they served the plant well. The problem is Advanced Nutrients sold me on these products based on false advertising. They boasted "no organic smell", and "no clogging lines". Iguana Juice Grow had a very strong "organic" (fishy) smell, I'm ok with that, but not ok that AN said it didn't. Iguana Juice Bloom and Big Bud Organic had a slight "organic" smell but not anywhere near the IJ grow. These products also did cause build up and clog lines, which AN boasted they don't. This made it very difficult to do thorough clean reservoir changes. Sediment also clogged up pump in DWC set up and stopped it from working. Will keep using these products in soil and hope for the best. Do not recommend for DWC

Will have to try to grow out this strain again, really see how well she can grow out to be. Lots of room for improvement, learning and crafting technique.

The smell, harshness and poor yield are all on me. I don't blame the genetics or nutrients. My lack of knowledge really set back this plant. But I had to start somewhere.

UPDATE!! Check update in the above section
