I'm sure this strain could grow anywhere. It seems quite hardy and can accept sub optimal conditions without complaint! Well done Fastbuds. Nice genetics!

Nutrients

This plant was grown in very sub optimal conditions. Temperature was too high. Tent was too small. I bent her over and she folded.... Lights were only 2x 250w CFL's. The end result, even though I got only 40g dryI am happy, all things considered. Very sweet smell/taste. Couch lock heavy eyelid stone. Fabulous for last smoke before bed. Friends have commented how well it helps them sleep.

But she isn't even close to being ready. How can she get you high with barely any thc?

@Dunk_Junk, there's just no way it was all milky with white pistils.

@Yogsothoth, People make mistakes my friend. This is my first Auto grow. I've also only been growing 2 years. It's a good job I have another blackberry that is a couple of weeks away from harvest but this time grown in proper conditions.

@Dunk_Junk, yeah i do understand, i'm myself a beginner. I'm just saying, if you think this weed got you high, read more about how and when to harvest, you'll get stoned like a cheating whore a couple Milleniums ago.

Tip : white pistils is a big no no. Check the trichomes.

Sounds like this harvest was a miracle with the grow conditions, good job pulling nearly 2oz! I love the look of Blackberry. I do have to agree with @Yogsothoth though, looks like she might have come down a bit early.

I would say to never follow breeders estimates to the letter, rather use them as a rough guideline. My auto's generally go 75-85 days. The pistils are all still all white in your pics, there should be a lot more brown pistils (60/80%) and they will tighten up to the buds more and not stand up so straight. Using a loupe is great too for checking trichomes, you may want to let it get to the point of having around 30% amber trich's for a good couch lock.

The beauty of growing is you can pop another seed and try again, improve conditions bit by bit and each time you'll have better quality and quantity!

@Squirrel_Master, Your last sentence is my ethos. Exactly that.

I currently have another Blackberry on the go. It's nice to find a place like this to give advice and bounce ideas around.

Good job even if people say too early!! I wouldn't say no to a puff of that! :)
