Impossible to give a fair smoke report on the Fast Buds Tangiematic strain as I don’t feel that this particular grow was successful. The only surviving plant of the three original seeds started was not healthy or normal (compared to other personal grows or other growers results observed on GD) therefore the bud quality is poor at best. I will attempt this strain again in future as I believe the Fast Buds genetics to be strong in general.

Love these lights, would recommend to anyone and everyone!

So, what started as 3 free Tangiematic seeds from Fast Buds has not worked out nearly as well as I had hoped for. Other than being the smallest seeds that I had ever germinated, all 3 seeds were otherwise healthy in appearance (normal colouring, smooth with a bit of an egg shell shine to them). Unfortunately, only 2 of the seedlings made it through germination as one of them was trapped within the seed husk and even with help from me- could not grow out of it. It yellowed and withered away in only 2 days. Of the 2 seedlings that did survive, one of them was not growing normally and was only 2-3" tall at 4 weeks old. I removed that seedling from the tent to make room for a more productive plant. The surviving Tangiematic was extremely dark green in colour from about 2 weeks on and stayed far too short, only growing to 10" tall in total! This plant was only fed once after the initial amendment yet showed symptoms of nitrogen toxicity throughout the entire grow. I’m not quite sure what went wrong with this grow, this strain so I decided to harvest her on day 70, the beginning of week 10. She only produced 26 grams- not quite one ounce of low quality bud that is currently in cure. I have sampled a joint and first impressions are somewhat harsh with hints of citrus/pine and it doesn’t have much potency. Better luck next time with the Fast Buds Tangiematic! :cry:

Im wondering if there is a recent bad batch of beans. I had some grow like that when all my other plants ended up fine. Runt genes? I think it happens once in a while. Seems a few other growers on here recently have as well. I only say this because of the way my plants look next to yours. Identical. Ill grow the rest of the pack out and compare. Nice grows btw 5/5

@Abstraktive, agreed 100%! This was a seed issue.

Hello- thank you for finishing your Diary. I’m a few weeks behind yours and was following as my tangies had a slow start too like yours so I was interested to see how yours went. I do have to say now that mine have taken off and starting to fill out great so I’d say definitely give them another try. So crazy the buds don’t even have pistols I’ve never seen that - were the beans direct from fastbuds? I’ve got a g14 and green crack started. I can’t wait to grow there Lemon AK next! I haven’t grown for about 12 years and autoflowers weren’t really a thing then so I’m addicted lol! Thanks again for the diary!

@Peetay85, thank you for following along! Yes these were free seeds direct from Fast Buds (thank you again for the free beans) and I really have no idea what went wrong with this strain. As I had another Fast Buds strain in the tent with these Tangiematics and they have been quite successful, I can honestly say- I don’t think this was an environmental issue. Same medium, water and natural fertilizer for all plants in this grow yet horrible results for the Tangies. I will try again with this strain. Enjoy the Green Crack and consider topping that strain as they tend to become monster plants. I harvested 1 pound off of three plants just a few months ago and it’s definitely a favorite of mine. All the best growing forward!
