Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

This strain is bred by @exoticgenetix_mike with his signature Grease Monkey crossed with Tropic Truffles. It's a sativa dominant hybrid which most likely affected the structure creating more airy smaller nugs. Though the yield was still insane, harvesting over 200gs from a single plant! The flavor on the strain is a gassy guava candy with sweet cake after tones. Each pheno carries a unique flavor with different accents. The frost on all the nugs is insane. Two of the bigger phenos had the strain's black purpling (great bag appeal) leading to more fruity taste due to higher anthocyanins whereas the other three were more on the gassy cake side with normal colors.

Nutrients

Highly recommend everyone use Plant Success mycorrhizae, they use the widest variety of beneficial microbes to feed your plants roots. Their liquid myco Orca is optional, but their Great White powder myco is a must have for germinating and transplanting.

Also recommend every grower try implementing Silica as it strengthens your plants cell walls. A lot more sturdier roots and branches, helps fight off disease and allows for greater nutrient absorption. The one I used is liquid Power SI.

Athena is the top of the line for Nutrients. They are collaborating with Jungle Boys to form the best nutrient regimen. Unfortunately the bottles are on the pricier side with basic ingredients such as CaMg, PK, and Cleanse obtainable for half the price.

Also from personal and other athena patrons have noticed that the colas don't fully form with the Athena line since it's focused more on hydro/rockwool.

Going to run FloraFlex and Athena side by side in a future run to test out the differences. Hopefully the with 420buds blackberry autos.

Lights

Very high quality light. The dimming option is great and the heat dispersion came in clutch too. My AC broke 2 weeks before harvest and at 80% dim the grow room remained under 80F. The yield came out to ~1 gram/watt so if feeding/training properly expect to yield about 1.5 lbs or 680g per light!

Tents

Didn't actually use a tent, I custom furbished out my 5' x 5' closet. However, I do wish I had gotten a tent as it's much easier to control the ventilation for heating/cooling which ultimately affects stable RH levels. A tent would've also made scrogging a lot easier with poles on corner to clip onto. Bought the GG 2x4 tent for black friday - let's see how it goes for the future runs.

PS: Growing medium is Tupur (80/20 coco perlite) by @royalgoldsoil

Spent eternity trimming! So this is why people call it trim jail.

Yield:
TM1: 205g Dry | 61g trim - Best growth and color, 7.2 oz yielder!
TM2: 177.5g dry | 72.5g trim - Frosty and colorful fruity
TM3: 154g dry | 67.2g trim - Even frostier than TM2 but no color more gas
TM4: 71g dry | 33.6g trim - Super larfy, still decent taste
TM5: 65.3g dry | 19.3g trim - Best Flavor, super gas and sweet
Total: 672.8g dry (23.8 oz) | 253.6g trim (9 oz)

Flavor is a gassy guava candy with sweet cake after tones. Frost and color is up there, structure is lacking in cola formation. There's a lot more popcorn nugs than hoped for. Definitely due to poor defoliation, lack of scrog, and late PK. Also

Besides that, a 672.8g yield would be ~1g/watt - an ideal goal for any starting growers
