Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Neutral

Slow dried for 32 days at 40-45F and 45-50%RH. Yielded 29.7g of flower and 4g of sugar leaf trim. Going straight into cure jars for the next month, and I have a separate jar where I’ll be curing the trim to make some hash. Smell is super sour gas and earth with hints of hash. High comes on slowly and centers itself behind the eyes, forcing them half-closed. A strong body buzz radiates up the back of my head and down my back and both arms. Headspace is kind of spacey and creatively stimulating. Minor anxious head buzz for the first 15min, gets mellowed out by small amounts of CBD (from the ruderalis genes) and settles into a solid hybrid stone. Definite “headband” feeling as is this strain’s usual namesake.

Nutrients

While my stalks were thick and hearty in the end, I think this product ended up killing a lot of my soil microbes.

Advertised as organic, but is salt based. Useful for those with more practical experience with salt based nutes, but this line ended up burning all 3 of my plants to some degree.

Fantastic products. After applying the HH during a phos deficiency and seeing recovery within a week I am hooked. Going to continue using the wetting agent as it seems to have helped a lot with water usage.

Buds came out thick and relatively dense, so I can attest to the fact that molasses really DOES work.

Tents

Tent is airtight enough to work, but there are lots of pinholes where light leaks, and while I grow autos this can be a huge problem for photo growers.

Chopped on day 78, trichomes were fully milky and beginning to turn amber on the calyxes. I was looking for more of a sativa feel, so I decided to pull her today! She stinks like gas, sour candy, and hints of spice and kush. She started out super strong but began having calcium, nitrogen, and phosphorous issues throughout flower. Fortunately she turned out healthy in the end and pushed out a lot of resin. Decided to go with a Lotus Cure on this round since my last round got dried too quickly and lost a lot of terpenes. Buds were chopped down, green leaves without trichomes removed, and straight into jars and into the mini-fridge at 55-62% RH and 40F.

@Boldinho, I put buds in jars with open screens to dry slowly. It’s called a lotus cure, and because the fridge is frost free it automatically keeps the humidity between 45-50% at all times. I have a dial to adjust the temperature and I have it set around 45-50F and it’s taken around 5 weeks to get to upper 70s/lower 80s. This was my fault because I watered the day before I chopped, prolonging the drying process. Plus I think 3-4 weeks in the jars on average is too long for me, so I’ve taken them out of jars but they are still in the fridge and get turned daily.
