Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

THC - 27%, CBD - <1%
55% Indica/ 45% Sativa

An easy plant to grow, especially on Autopot. Nutrient requirement is average. Responded well to LST and HST. It even recovered from an accidental topping early in flowering, though it did affect the yield significantly. Overall yield was not great but satisfactory. It could have been more if I wasn't too aggressive in training them.

The buds were dense and covered in trichomes even in the beginning of flowering. Beautiful colours. Every time I walk pass the grow room, it smelled like freshly baked cookies. But other times it smelled like someone was cooking spiced meat or sausages. Weird terpene profile.

Tastes minty and mildly sweet with an earthy undertone. A little harsh on the throat because it has been curing only for a week. Starts off with typical sativa intense head rush and euphoria which lasted for about an hour. I smoked it in the evening and with the initial head high, it was perfect to enjoy a little music and Netflix. After about 2-3 hours, the indica effect sets in and it was just nice to fall asleep. Perfect evening smoke.

Week 13 - 30/1/2021 - 5/2/2021

31/1/2021 - plant 2 branch breaks easily without bending after 5 days of drying. Total dry weight for plant 2 came to 24g. Rather disappointing. It didn't have enough time to recover from the accidental topping. It was too close to flowering. 

1/2/2021 - plant 4 taken down from drying rack. Total dry weight came to 68g. 

I had enough time to do a quick wet trim on plant 3 then decided to just cut it down today instead of waiting for another one or two days. 

7/2/2021 - after 6 days of drying, the small branch breaks easily. The total dry weight for plant 3 came to 74g. So all together the total harvest for all four plants is 214 grams. An underwhelming yield for sure but you learn from your mistakes. Looking forward to my next grow. Moby dick and critical Jack. And there will be a major upgrade to my grow space. :)

Grow Questions

Increasing light on duration for Autoflower during mid flowering
My current light cycle is 18/6. I'm on week 3 of flowering now. Is it possible to increase the light on duration to 20 hours or 24 hours now? Would it stress the plants?

Auto flowering plants are not wonder plants that can work 24/7!! they're just normal plants with a different trait!
I'd say leave it at 18/6 since you're already giving them 6 more hours of light than the usual photoperiod plants and you don't want to cause radiation stress to your girls!
If you want to try *with caution* increase the schedule to 20/4, I've heard of some people who grew in that schedule with conflicting opinions and experiences.
Hope this helps! Good luck and happy growing :)
