Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

From the beginning of this grow, this particular seed of strawberry cough had many irregularities. The leaf patterns were unusual, the nodes were uneven and also missing in some spots, I'm assuming this could be due to lighting and or the genetics/phenotypes of this one seed. When flowering came and progressed i noticed the buds weren't your typical "cola" structure but more like cluster buds, even up high where your biggest buds would be and strongest sunshine. She ended up having leaves poking out of every possible place and these seemed to break up the space in the colas. Again I'm guessing if i grew the strain again things may look differently.

Nutrients

I really enjoyed using fox farm, throughout the time using it i never felt like it gave me any toxicity. It seems to be a nice easy and well designed trio for beginners and beyond. Their soil was amazing as well, beautiful color and feel, never stayed muddy or contain too much nutrients.

This was a trial run with remo and the nutrients seemed to work good. The supercharged kit has a good variety of whole grow products. The only thing I'd do differently is buy a very long syringe to suck up and measure the liquid with...it had a habit of leaking and spilling.

This year was my first set of plants ever! So naturally I only had knowledge from books etc...no experience or past mistakes. I learned a lot this year, both from things going right and so many things gone wrong. I managed to overdose my plants with a calmag supplement, snap branches when i didn't mean to, let the plants stretch from lack of sunlight, but still manage to come out with decent buds in the end. The strawberry cough had been an especially odd ball plant from the start so i learned to just roll with the punches with her. I was able to successfully clone her many times just experimenting. She did very well against low temperatures and high, as well as drastically low humidity. I did manage to somehow attract a number of bugs which i couldn't fully banish, so i tried to rely more on the beneficial insects in my yard and buying ladybugs.

The most important thing I took away from this grow was to plan out your next moves well in advance. Not days in advance but weeks in advance because anything can change or go wrong and I wanna be prepared for it if it does. *Time not spent planning, is time wasted. Also to defoliated on time, clean up the bottom of my plants of small leaves small buds anything that is taking away energy, and get the big water leaves out of there before harvest time.
Big thanks to everyone @growdiaries for all the help, all the Twinkies and WolfPack and GOTM's, and if i can give out the patience award of the year it goes to @farmerbrett for dealing with my chaotic self and growing style. :kiss::v:

Im preparing for the curing process, Does anyone know how long you should do this for? Are there different results for doing it longer or shorter? Anyone got any cool tricks up their sleeves or things that worked well? Thanks for the help. :v:

After the buds have dried (crispy outside and the smallest stems snap) fill your airtight container(s) 3/4 full. Week 1 open each container for 5 min each day. Week 2 open each container every 3 days for 2 minutes. Enjoy your smoke and add bovada packs if desired (don’t do this before week 3 since the idea is to move moisture from the inside to the outside of the buds) and continue opening once a week for 5 minutes. The flavors, smoothness and aroma will continue to improve for 3-6 months. For storage beyond 6 months buds should be kept frozen.

@Romcash101, thanks so much. It was so fun to grow. Have you ever had bugs on your plants towards harvest time?

@ExperimentGREEN, definitely when I've grown outdoors its very hard not to. The main reason I grow indoors is because I can control the environment so much easier. That's also why I'm always impressed with successful outdoor grows as it can be a battle from the very start:blush:
