5 Gal gorillas grew bushy, dense, then around critical week 6 i accidently defoliated some of their branches because first grow. This made the main colas and the secondaries that were left to get proper buff, one of these ended up bending almost to the floor and foxtailing like mad right up to the end. These grew, beyond grower error, then rippened and buffed out nicely, trykes reaching, then multiplying, then just getten fatter and cloudy. Chopped at all cloudy no ambers week 15 - smells like pistacchios when its drying, uncured popcorn buds burn like a christmassy camp fire, but I'll let you know after a six week cure just to make sure. Really strong much stronger than my GSCs and they werent bad either.
Gorilla glue is absolutely a great auto to run. In ten gal it was tripple the size of my stunted one. 370 wet, hopefully something close to 100 dry - let's see I'll update in a couple of weeks. So what happened really ? the gorilla grows bushy quickly, by week 3 it was noticeably more bushy than the rest. Kinda took an extra week to really start flowering then it stretched 20-50 cm a week for four weeks. In all it's close to 1.5 meters in height, loads of colas, maybe twice or three times as many as the GSC. . To be honest i prefer the look and structure of more traditional plants like the GSC, that had fatter colas. Anyway the colas had loads of flower nodes up and down. Next time i'm gonna prune the little ones further down the cola. I'm not growen out here to smoke popcorn nugs get me? . The buds themselves are quite thin, but rock solid much harder than any other strain i've grown so far - but i've this is my first time growen so take that with a grain of salt. The buds are covered in frost, trykes all over, oily ily oily, if you touch the buds your hands smells great for a few hours. Fun ! The trykes started appearing quite early and took a while's longer than the rest to get ripe - like truly ripe. So there were absolutely no ambers, maybe i saw one or two last night , but basically no ambers - this lady got cut down at the height of potency -- that's good i live my weed as strong as a brick wall so it hits you and knocks your socks off. Hopefully this will be that ! Stay chuned growies I'll update all this once the dry and much of the cure is done.
Growing GSCs in a 5 gal was a good idea, didn't notice any loss of yield compared to the 10gal, not really, rippened just as quick. Started off strong, shot up stretched too much , most of her side branches rippened though, and the taste is sweet like butter and chocolate - my friends have fucken yelled at me for not sharen, sorry no enough to go around, gonna try cream cookies next. Frosted over even after 4 weeks of curing. yield's a bit low, smoke is not that strong compared to photo periods very creative, boost of energy then cotch af . Man these smelled so strong, there's no point growing them without an air filter very very tasty strain makes me want to grow a photo of it next.
