Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

This was an easy strain to grow, great yields with 290g and 136g, awesome mellow smoke, subtle but intriguing creamy vanilla scent and seemingly consistent. The nugs are rock solid and from the heads to the lowers very consistent. They were also easy to trim if you give a shit about that. Both plants were untrained for the most part aside from defoliation and a slight bend in the main stalk. My only complaint would be the time it took to mature and the little one randomly hit a speed bump and stopped growing right in the middle for some reason. I really enjoy the smoke tho and the feel of the nugs. It may vary from person to person but the high gets me mellow and relaxed but not so much where I cant continue on with my shit. I have been smoking this more than the others mostly because it doesnt make me anxious af all. It's not ridiculously potent I believe the avg. Thc content is around 18% on this one and that feels about right. I'd reccomend this to new growers and for those who are looking for some sort of medical related relief.

Didnt notice any difference from the bud ignitor but I only had a 250ml bottle. The b52 was chunky and kinda nasty. The nirvana is thick but I thought it worked well. Big bud is a weird texture it's like kinda thick foam but it does the trick.

GHE

Armor si = beast stems when used properly. The licious is a good value for what it claims to provide.

Worked well. Reliable base nutes never let me down when I use calmag but havnt tried without it. Rhizo is so expensive and the dosage is high, if I mix 10ml/gal every feed in a 10 gal res i get 10 feeds for $50 i think it was? That adds up.

Reliable consistent nutes, calmag works well at full strength 5 ml/gal, I've never had root rot so either my environment is good or the hydroguard is doin its job, I like the pure blend pro for bloom simply because theres certain things that cause buds to deviate from their intended aroma and 2 of them are too much nitrogen in mid to late flower and pumping synthetics. This gives me some natural and organic components to enhance the natural terpene profiles and low N so I use the canna for veg until maybe 2nd 3rd week bloom then go to pbpro and cut calmag in half towards the end.

Didnt notice any improvements with the drip clean personally. The roots excell is gold I think it outperformed the rhizo pretty easily, it's expensive but at 1.1 ml/gal, rhizo is expensive at 15ish ml/g so try n do that math chief

Easy to grow, big yield potential, rock solid buds, great smoke, smell is about 7/10 in terms of potency, high is the best part, may not be a quick finisher depending on training methods and environment. Would grow again but not immediately

hey Hawbo, just been wondering how do you get all that lateral branching going so well on most genetics, you seem to achieve top results so consistently ! i've been reading up on it, but you're one of the few that seems to actually be able to achieve it consistently so I was wondering... how though ? spray ? defoliation ? is it just simply LST? maybe something super secret that I cant figure out ? would love to hear from you about this !
