Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

Very mellow high, which is nice, making it a great session smoke. Good for socializing or getting stuff done. Has more of a sleepy comedown though. This could be due to the high CBD or a later harvest. The buds are super sticky and coved in trichomes, with the top buds feeling pretty dense and displaying purple and lime green. Smells like citrus and pine.

Even though one of the plants ended up being weaker, the healthier plant grew quickly and hearty. Stayed a reasonable height and was easy to mange in a smaller tent. Also seemed very resilient and recovered quickly during transplant or training. Could definitely handle heavier nutrients and loved water.

Nutrients
GHE

First experience with nutrients so I don't have much to compare. Easy to use and follow. I probably could have run them stronger or with more frequent feedings. I didn't experience any burn and actually ran into a slight deficiency midway through flower. Even with only flushing for about one week, the smoke is smooth and burns clean.

Overall, I think this was a solid first grow. I learned quite a bit and definitely identified a few areas for improvement. Now I feel I can be more aggressive with some of the plant training and feed heavier with nutrients, especially during flower. I'm also looking into setting up better lighting to drive energy further into the canopy. The top buds were all solid, but lower down the stems were mostly fluff.

Really enjoying the smoke and looking forward to the next grow!

Grow Questions
Skill_Murray week 3 started grow question 8 months ago
When I checked the run off from this weeks watering - PH was 7.6 and TDS was reading 1975ppm. I had added Dolomite Lime to the soil as some had recommended. Could this cause the high PH levels? Any suggestions on how to bring it down? Worried about nutrient lockout. Thanks!

Lime will raise the ph. Are you ph’ing your water down when watering? I’d ph the water down to 5.5-6.0. That should help bring down the ph in your soil. Good luck!
Skill_Murray week 13 started grow question 6 months ago
Can anyone help sort out the issue I'm seeing on the lower leaves? I think I'm either between nutrient burn or potassium deficiency? I did up the nutrients a bit this week when I saw yellowing, but also have had high runoff pH the whole grow. Though haven't seen any other issues.

First of all, without clear pictures of the affected leaves I can't be sure of what exactly it is. A deficiency at the end of the stretch, beginning stages of bud production is normal, if it shows on the lower leaves with dark / metallic blue spots and withering it is phosphorous deficiency, sometimes it also comes with red / purple petioles (stems attached to leaves); chlorosis (yellowing) starting at the tip and edges of the lower leaves with rust spots close to the edge of the leaves if it is potassium deficiency. If it looks like homogeneous yellowing with no spots, it's nitrogen deficiency. During stretch, some nitrogen deficiency is quite normal, since the plant explode with growth; P and or K deficiency after stretch is normal too, it just means that the feeding needs to be stronger or done more often). Your bloom nute is 2-4-4, I would up the dose or frequency, what is the EC / PPM of your feedings? At this stage I usually feed 1.3 EC / 650 PPM. As for soil run off PPM's, don't pay that much attention to it, it's just a way to see how exhausted your soil is and how much nutes your plant is taking related to your feeding. Mine starts at 10.000 PPM (yes 10 thousand PPM) and when it's at 5.500 PPM my plants show definitive signs of deficiencies and it is when I have to start feeding; at the end of the flowering stage, even with feedings, my run off PPM is between 1.000 PPM and 3.000 PPM, as long as you run off PPM is not increasing you are good to go.
