Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This strain was rather resilient taking my abuse well and bouncing back. It did not grow as tall as I expected. I am definitely going to try this one again.

Nutrients

I was worried the nutrients would spoil. This is in part to having my 1st Herculean Harvest become a bit sold. Turns out either it was frozen in transit or I wasn't shaking it enough. Very pleased with these nutrients and the customer service of Oregon's Only. pH is so important! Olympus Up works very well. Takes very little to change the pH. Pegas Potion smells bad but really helps with nitrogen deficiency. Be careful not to go too far. I felt like Herculean Harvest was most important to the lineup.

Dried in the tent for 7 days between 38 and 50% relative humidity between 63℉ and 70℉. Going to let it cure for two weeks or more then will return to rate the tastes and feels. So far it has a very sweet, pleasant smell. I was a little uncertain about how much grooming to do so one some buds I aggressively removed sugar leafs and on others I left them mostly on.000

Grow Questions
burnerac week 19 started grow question 10 months ago
Am I correct that the brown tips are nutrient burn? Should I alternate giving nutrients and water? Say, nutrients on day 1, then water 4 days later, then nutrients 4 days after that, then water, etc.?

You are correct in your assumptions. You have nutrient burn, you can tell not only by the burnt tips, but by the really dark foliage, which indicates Nitrogen toxicity. You should feed once every 7 to 10 days, why? because it takes that long to see the effects of a feeding on the plants. Also, only water once you see the soil has really dried up, don't stick to a set amount of days, it could take 4 days? sure, although it could take much longer. Also, although I'm not familiar with your nutrient line, it does seem like too much, I mean 29 tsp? I've never seen that much of anything been used. Now, you are already beginning the 7th week of flower, you are almost there, so don't give anymore nutrients, only pH'ed water and let the plan consume what's left on the soil and on it's leaves to power what's left of the flowering stage, hell you should do a flush to help along. I say this to almost every grower, but get an EC/PPM meter to check your feeding strength, for soil you should aim for a concentration of 0.7 to 1.4 EC depending on the phase, you would be amazed how toxic some of the schedules the nutrient companies recommend us to use.

As I approach my first harvest, I'm reading as much as I can, but what questions should I be asking that I do not know to ask?

Stick answered grow question 9 months ago
Is the trichomes-ratio (amber/milky) OK ? What's the best day+hour to harvest ? Do I have all the tools (latex gloves+good scissors+jars) ? Is my drying space ready ? Can I recycle some leafs+stems ? What about the harvest wastes ? What's the best spot around to enjoy some of my 'Gold Leaf' and meditate ? :)

Congrats on the harvest

@bobo420, This was fun! I think I over dried before putting it into jars for curing. My jars aren't getting above 50% humidity. I've learned so much. Thank you for coming along with my journey and helping out.

@burnerac, you're welcome. You can check out boveda cannabis, I use their product to keep the RH checked ;)
