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.
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:
