Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

5 days of drying has yielded 67g of dry weight. 27g from the cola and top buds, and 40g from the small buds and popcorn...
It's just about dry enough to smoke, but definitely on the damper side of dry.
Still, that's a good 2oz of nice dry weight :-)
Apart from the cola, the smaller buds are all very airy.

Nutrients

Simple to use, although the provided feed guide was too much by at least a factor of 4, and it took me a good 4 weeks or more to figure out the right dose

Certainly helped, no Mag or Cal problems

So my first grow was a bit of a learning curve... Some of the main points I picked up for next time:
- Don't overwater it as a seedling. It will stunt the growth.
- Move to a bigger pot sooner, as it gets root-bound in a little tiny pot very quickly
- Put it under a full strength light as soon as it's able - don't mess about with 15w bulbs for too long.
- Don't let the plant get cold! They don't like 20f temps..
- Only water when it needs it
- Don't put too much feed in.. if the leaflet says 40ml/10l, use about 10ml/10l, or less
- Use a PK booster from week 2 of flowering onwards
- A more powerful bulb would have been ideal in these temps. a 300w HPS for example.
- Don't flush it every day during the flush, every other day is fine
- Wear disposable gloves to trim it.. :-/00

Looks beautiful mate. I hope you've read up on trimming and manicuring, you've got quite a job ahead of you with that many buds! Great growing, wish you the best of luck with the next one. I'll be doing Creme de la Chem after easter (;

@Truro, I had a check on the girl today, and wet trimming would definitely have been easier.. Doh! Next time..

@Truro, 4 more days of drying at least, it's 6c out there today, so it's a slow process. The heaters are just about keeping on top of it.

Cool grow brother, if the shed is to cold, you'd be surprised how inexpensive one of those little space heaters from Walmart could keep it about 70-80 in a shed easy, but I'd prob get a better one that can keep a better temp
