Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

The beginning of the high is very much body focused and relaxing/couch-lock, but after 10 to 15 minutes there is also a good head high. Strength to me is something like 7 out of 10. I do not smoke (only vape), but am told that the smoke is very smooth when doing so. It's definitely more indica than sativa and would not be my choice for using at a festival or something. Still, it's good to have for relaxed nights.
The taste is a flowery, a little earthy and sweet. The smell on the other hand is like artificial grape soda with extra sugar. However even each branch of bud was somewhat differing in the smell, with some having a very strong grape sodaish flavor and others a more sweet flowery (almost lavender) smell.
Interestingly I didn't get much of an increased appetite with this.
Dry mouth happens, but it's not as bad as I've had with other sorts.

Nutrients

Definitely saw good root development, within 17 days the plant was root-bound in a 1 liter container.

Considering this was my first grow it's hard to say how much influence these had on it. However, the buds did come out pretty well and quite sweet.

This burned my plants a few times, even when using it at 5x less the recommended dosage. I did have an auto-flower, so maybe that was still overdoing it but I can't really say if it actually helped my plant or not.

Overall this was an interesting experience. I'm honestly a bit surprised I got anything, let alone some really decent product. The plant tolerated my mistakes fairly well, like transplanting multiple times, initially just watering with tap water, and occasionally damaging a leaf or two. The final pot and soil I had chosen was a mistake as well and I think the plant began to run out of nutrients towards the end of the grow, causing the heavy yellowing it experienced.
Still, in the end it came out decent and I'll be satisfied for the rest of the year as far as indicas go I think :blush:
Going to continue curing it for a couple of weeks, but it's very much worth using already :)

Grow Questions
Eryan week 4 started grow question 9 months ago
See the last photo from Day 24. There are a few spots on this one section of one leaf. Because it's limited to this one area, I'm not too concerned. But I would like to know if someone thinks this is a nutrient deficiency/excess or something to be concerned about.

Without more information about your nute strength, and quality of water you are using is hard to diagnose what it could be. Since you are not posting either pH or EC/PPM, my first guess would be that the pH of your water / nute solution is way off. Before adding anything, get a cheap pH pen and check your water.
