Overall very happy with the outcome!

This was my 1st grow and I went 100% organic using only KindSoil + Coco Loco with carbon filtered tap water. I used citric acid to adjust my pH down as needed. Zero synthetic fertilizers or chemicals used.

I had a scare when I thought she was starting to herm on day 69, which prompted me to chop her down. Turns out they were swollen calyxes, not seeds. Ideally, I would have waited a bit longer for 50% amber trichomes, but she was close enough to where I wanted her to be, so no worries!

After 6 days of drying at 48% - 55% RH, the branches snapped easily and the outer edges of the buds felt dry and crisp. At that point, I trimmed it, weighed it, and jarred it up for the cure. At the time of this writing, it is day 3 of the cure and smelling so amazing!

I was pleasantly surprised by the yield. 1 plant. 773 grams (27.3 ounces) wet. 101 grams (3.6 ounces) trimmed and dried.

This strain was a pleasure to grow.

Was the bud airy?? Did you bud wash or something to increase wet weight ? I’m just blown away by the 28 oz wet weight to 3.5 oz dry.. it lost 87.5% in dry and cure, damn. gorgeous buds tho! Congrats

@Automaniac, that makes sense.. I’ve learned the hard way and lost a few ounces to mold going in jars too quick, even with a huge boveda bag in there .. makes sense!! Amazing looking buds tho like I said!

@Ezzjaygrows, this was my first grow and I was so worried about the buds getting moldy that I erred on the side of caution and ended up drying the buds a tad bit longer than I should have. They have been curing for 2 months and still seem a bit too dry. The smoke is still a pleasure, but looking back the yield would have certainly been heavier if I popped them into the jars a day or two sooner.
