It seems I got two different phenotypes, one more purple than the other one but both plants were quite beautiful and the high felt amazing!

- High: It was very mind-like and I believe the positive effects were quite... accurate! I'd add "sensitive" to the mix but that one wasn't there (it felt so good to touch soft stuff!)
- Flavor: I'm still undecided but the most prominent thing I felt was a Citrus flavor. After that "Earthy" (if I can call it like that) and "Herb" felt quite accurate. Might update them later after the buds have been curated for more time!

The smoke felt nice and no damage to my throat. :ok_hand:

Hey everyone!

We're at the end of the road and here are the results of my babies! :heart_eyes:

I did a dry trimming (takes way less time) and I must say I'm quite happy with the results.

Wet weight (with leaves and all that):
- Plant A (front): 427g
- Plant B (back): 321g

Dry weight:
- Plant A: 67.11g
- Plant B: 43.81g

Discard (which was FULL of trichomes): 39.56g

The "less purplier" one gave me more production than the other one but I'm not surprised by that, considering she was growing "better" compared to her sister since the beginning. I'm still totally impressed with the numbers I got, mostly because I know purple strains ain't known for being the most productive ones and I still got a good number considering what I have :muscle: I mean, I almost reach the 1g/watt considering both plants and that was done with an auto and a purple strain! :smiley::raised_hands:

For maths I won't count the discard pile, but I plan to freeze it and try to get all those beautiful trichomes into kief or something (everything was so frosty and sticky!) :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I accept recommendations!

Now, regardless how was my experience with these two? What can I say, they were incredibly fast and really easy to grow, they allowed me to do a lot of training (check the photos for that) and they didn't stress at all. I also did constant defoliation which can be the bane for some strains, specially if they are autos! :grin: My only regret (can't blame the plant) or what makes me sad is they didn't turn more purple, but there's nothing I can do there? (besides blaming the weather, it was crazy hot and I'm sure that's one of the reasons :joy:!)

I'll probably update the diary in the future when the buds are slightly more curated, but for now I believe I can call this over. It was a nice growing these girls!

See you all in my next diary, bye! :wink:

If ur struggeling to achieve purple dense nuggs. Try giving colder water say 10-15 degrees C and implement uv bulbs or a lamp with uv within the build. Do this 2-4 weeks before harvest to mimic autumn :fallen_leaf: you take a hit on yield compared to a otherwise healthy plant but there's an increase in trichome build/potency and autumn colours purps oranges etc.
