Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

The grow went really well as you can see from the diary. Improved my yield over my last grow by roughly fifty percent.

I love the strain. No issues really during the grow. Fastbuds genetics are very reliable.

The smoke is good. Stronger than expected but maybe that's because i harvested early. Im curious about Fastbuds estimated harvest time for their seeds. My experience has been it's at least a week or two more than they suggest and i think i harvest a little bit earlier than some chasing that psychoactive effect.

Anyway, a great growing experience overall. Next up I'm going to try some photos for the first time. Thanks for following!

Nutrients

I find using the General Organics line with these autos it's helpful to (as I believe Fastbuds recommends) give them grow nutrients a week or so into flower. I then transitioned into bloom at roughly 50/50 for another feed or two. I think moving straight into bloom with no transition shocked the girl scout cookies in my first grow, leaving me scrambling to save them for the next three weeks.

I also didn't ph adjust the G.O. nutrients as recommended on the box. I did measure and it was generally at or just below 5.5. I did ph adjust once i started adding the Koolbloom late into flower. I used baking soda and apple cider vinegar exclusively for ph adjustment.

I think the koolbloom helped develop the terpenes based on my last grow where i didn't use it.
