Finally finished the cure and smoked a bit of the bud today and was decently impressed. I think I found what was causing the whole pH issue, while getting the roots out of the net pot I noticed a decent amount of nutrient goop in there. I wasn't doing flushes every 2 weeks and I think some nutrients where able to build up in the roots. Never the less the bud turned out pretty nice. Decently smooth with some nice berry notes, not a real heavy Indica but i can tell shes a Indica hybrid.
