Growing it

Resistance

Neutral

Really impressed by this cultivar, germinated quickly, grew fast and produced nice buds.

She seemed to be sensitive to nutrients, I never managed to get her to have nice green leaves all over. I trained one of the plants and she took really well to the training.

Will report once smoke once cured. The buds are smelling lovely, sweet creamy/vanilla flavour.

Nutrients

Good nutrients, work well and can see impact on plant immediately.

the ph down is a tricky, you think if you add 2ml that dropped ph by 2 then adding another ml would bring it down by another 1 but no, the result is different, don't assume anything and always measure ph

No idea, added it to the plants and they are flowering ok, not sure what effect these had if any :D

Tents

Good sturdy tent, the zip on the doors is not great, gets stuck sometimes but I have no experience with other tents to compare.

This plant that I harvested today I've only defoliated and she took well to that. I LST and defoliated the other plant and she is still ripening will harvest her soon.

285gramms of wet bud is quite good for first grow, so i should get about 60g dry, I'll update actual value when dry. She was in the tent with 4 other plants under the Skyline 1000 lights which pull 500w from mains.

She filled the room with some sort of orange/lemon candy smell. Smells really nice.

I'll update when I harvest the other Candy Kush and report on taste/effect once dried.
-------

Day 79 I harvested the other Candy Kush, gave 280g wet, not much of a difference between the trained and untrained plants, although I think she could have gotten fatter had I left her longer. Looking at the buds now that they dried up they got much smaller :D

Really loving the smell, can't wait for them to cure.

Grow Questions
herbalistssword week 5 started grow question 2 years ago
More training now? or leave her longer?
I've attached image from 7 days after defoliation and more LST and what she grew to today. Quite bushy, should I defoliate/tuck again so more light gets to lower branches? only do some more lst? more lst and defoliation? or leave her for now and let her grow? 35 days from seed

One more time, bend them then flip.

Yellow bright new growth
New leaves on the Candy Kush plant #1 are bright green/yellow. This seems to have started when increased biogrow from 2ml/l to 3ml/l. Iron, zinc or sulphur deficiency? Only give calmag on next feed? Might have measured pH before adding nutrients so Faber wrong pH?

i am not seeing anything wrong. what i am seeing is a plant ready to start forming bud. the lighter color comes on the new growth right before the flower sites start forming lottle buds, congrats cause after this week those buds will start form, she looks very happy and healthy so stop the stress. happy growing

Congratulations! Great result! I also never succeed having nice green colors throughout the whole grow. I'm starting to think that this is normal with autos; they seem to have the habit of eating their leaves during flower for the benefit of producing bigger blossoms.
