Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

The grow went really well with no issues whatsoever in terms of pH, PPMs, or lockouts. She started flowering in early week three (quite early) and as a result she didn't stretch much. The flowers were thick and dense with the main cola being approximately 3-4 inches in diameter. She was harvested at day 55 with 85% of the trichomes milky, 10% amber and 5% clear. She looks green at harvest because she was not flushed with straight water, but rather ripened with the suggested Nectar for the Gods methodology.

In terms of smoke, the first smoke session was through a nice Davinci IQ vaporizer. Taste was very pleasing with some nice fruity/tropical tasting terpenes and an aftertaste that was earthy, flowery, and citrusy. The high was very, very euphoric, with a nice even head and body high with increased auditory senses.

Nutrients

The Nectar for the Gods Organic line of nutrients is, in my opinion, second to none as it is not your typical salt based NPK nutrient line. Everything is carried to the plant by a calcium molecule. While it requires more attention to detail in terms of soil pH and PPM, it truly does add an element of beauty to your flowers and to the overall jar appeal, flavor, and quality of the harvested, dried, and cured product.

Recharge was utilized throughout the majority of the grow. This product is amazing and lives up the claim of "Stronger/Healthier Plants in 48 Hours Guaranteed." The first time I applied Recharge, I noticed a substantial difference in the health of the plant. I had no pH lockout issues and it worked well combined with the Nectar for the Gods nutrients. In my opinion, this is one of the better microbial products on the market as it loads your soil with with organic bacteria, fungi, and microbes.

Used very sparingly at beginning of grow.

These nutrients were only used at week 3 in a very light dosage. Watered in a small dose of these nutrients for one watering.

Very nice grow and harvest. FastBuds certainly lived up to its name as she finished in 55 days. Unbelievably dense and fat colas that had packed on the weight due to the Nectar for the Gods nutrients. 0

Nice harvest and a great diary. I was just wondering did you harvest early for effects or necessity?

@Zannabis7, just odd that the pistols didn’t darken more first (strain perhaps). But that’s why we use magnifiers !!! I also harvest with cloudy Trichs for less couch lock.

@Tazard, Thank you. I harvested when the trichomes said ready. I would approximate that the trichomes were 85% cloudy, 10% amber and 5% clear. I tend to like a more energetic high. Best wishes...

Nice harvest man, was that the full flowering time mate or did you take her early? My barneys farm pe is well behind these, one looks like its only been flowering for about a week, maybe two.. Another looks like its maybe a week or 2 ahead of that first one and then the last one looks like its a couple weeks may be from finishing, And they are going to be on week 10 tomorrow.. They are suppose to be finishing up now.. So quite disappointed with them to be honest. Looks like you had a great turn out though man, great job!

@Zannabis7, fair enough mate that's a quick harvest that isn't it! to be fair I have heard nothing but good things about fastbuds seeds, so have been swayed into them My self and have just orderd a blue dream, gorilla glue and west coast og auto to run the same time as my next photo periods, your Diary has certainly got me intreaged to see how they turn out.. Hope she smokes as good as she looks mate :ok_hand:

@ganjaman94, Thanks you! FastBuds recommends 9 weeks as a finishing time, however, many finish in around 8 weeks. For my PE, she started flowering early (3rd week) and just seemed to mature quickly. Anyhow, I did not take her early- she was ready in 55 days from germination. I took here when most trichomes said ready. I would approximate that the trichomes were 85% cloudy, 10% amber and 5% clear. I tend to like a more energetic high. This is when I typically like to harvest. Thanks again for the kind words...

Great harvest my friend awesome diary and super video:+1::+1::+1:
Are you pleased with 24/0 light cycle will you continiue growing on24/0?
I noticed that on 24/0 plant begins flowering a bit early and she has little internodal space.
Happy curing bro!:fist:️

@Zannabis7,I used 24/0 exactly by that reason and i am going to use 20/4 too after winter)))
Best wishes bro!

@somnabull, Thanks for the kind words on diary and video. Yes, I was pleased with the 24/0 light cycle. It was primarily used because of it being winter here and the grow room would become to cool without the lights on constantly. The cool air was also helpful in keeping the grow room the correct temp throughout the grow. Otherwise, I would likely be using a 20/4 light cycle. Best wishes...
