Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

This run was an experiment where I took clones during flower from my first bagseed grow. I don't know any specifics about the genetics, but it's indica dominant that will show purple colouration late in flower, especially when exposed to colder lights off temperatures.

It seems to be prone to developing nutrients issues mid flower. This run most of the top fan leaves turned a yellow/rust colour, became dry and curled in late flower.

Nutrients

This was my second run with House & Garden's Cocos line. I've had pretty good success with it so far, but feel as though House & Garden have to complex of a product line that can quickly break your budget.

I didn't actually use Calnesium, I used Future Harvest's other CalMag product, Organical Magic.

Lights

The Mars TS is an alright light for the price. It's efficiency is pretty good for a cheap LED, but it also has some confusing flaws. The short ends of the reflector don't angle outwards like the longer sides do, this means that the light spread along these sides is actually greatly diminished. At best it's suitable for a 2x2 space. Additionally though its heat dissipation isn't awful, it does produce more heat than the Reflector 96.

Tents

I've had three full runs through this tent already and so far it's been great. I originally purchased it because it's all I thought I could fit into the space I have. Though I probably could have gone a bit bigger. Nonetheless it's been just enough space to run 2 plants in 1 gallon pots.

The biggest issue I've had with this tent so far is that it's difficult to keep temperature / humidity stable in such a small tent. Opening it for just a minute will drop the humidity significantly. Because of this it can also be difficult to vent heat. I'm currently using a 4" exhaust fan but I'd benefit from upgrading to a 6".

The structure of the plants was quite nice, they weren't topped, but because they were monster cropped they developed several main colas. With a bit of LST I encouraged each plant to develop about 8 tops. The scrog was useful in the early stages of flowering, but became pretty useless when the plants stretched over a foot above the trellis. I could have used a second trellis net, but didn't bother. The extent of stretching resulted in very minimal stacking of buds between nodes.

The flowers didn't bulk up as much as I would have liked. Their mom grew very stout and dense, these didn't get as wide or as dense. They are however very frosty and smell much sweeter than their mom. These have a strong berry aroma that I didn't notice as predominantly in the first run of this strain.

A few branches had very purple flowers, whereas the rest of the harvest was more predominant dark green, with orange hairs and some light purple in the calyxes. I'm curious why only some branches demonstrated this behaviour.

Though the majority of flowers are smaller and somewhat airy, the end weight was 136 grams. I likely could have yielded higher if I let them go longer before harvesting, but I was eager to move my next run into the tent.
