This was a challenging grow from the beginning. I highly advise against using General Hydroponics cocotek coco coir. They make great nutes but the ppm of this salty shredded mess from the factory was outrageous. Had ph fluctuations in the beginning until I transplanted her into s thoroughly rinsed and charged pot of coco. Veg cycle went great after that. I made mistake of pushing her to hard with nutes mid flower and ran into more ph issues and high ppm runoff. I kept dropping nute levels the last few weeks and she seemed to recover alright and finished out well. Aroma is intense and the entire house smelled after trimming :drooling_face:. Produced some nice scissor hash and a ton of nice trim drying out waiting to be screened. I have a small oscillating fan on low blowing over the trim and I am hand turning it several times throughout the day for even drying and mold prevention, its sitting on a screen so it can get airflow from below as well. Smoke report and dry weights to come shortly 7 to 14 days. Target drying conditions are 69F 55% RH

48 hrs drying done so far. Popped off a small fluffy popcorn bud from the near bottom of the plant. Dried well enough to smoke and ash up nice and white. Sticky as hell, aroma was mild but expected being just 48hrs hung and no cure time. (I am a huge believer in curing, had multiple jars last well over 2 years of premium bud, slight milding of scent but still potent AF.) As of now full on fuelish skunk, almost like if youre within mere feet of fresh skunk spray. Nice mellow smoke with notes of cinnamon, coffee, fruit jam on the exhale. Nice balance of body/head high. Very calming but not couch locking. Elevated mood, definitely a good all day smoke for someone dealing with depression and/or anxiety. My opinion may change as I dive into the premo buds after a little cure. This will be a living blog post harvest with cure updates.

96 hours they feel almost there. Probably 24 to 36 hours until they're dry enough to start the jar process. They are definitely gaining their scent back, no hay/grassy smell any longer. Popped a little nug in the grinder and she is definitely developing the GG smell. Strong fuel skunk, tropical citrus fruits on the nose and strong pine on the exhale.

117 hours and I have cut off the buds and they will be put into their jars shortly. Dry weight came in a little less than what I was expecting but I did run into ph issues i flower which I think greatly affected fatness. The few decent nugs that formed are hard as rocks but majority are a little lose. Totally fine by me, it all smokes just the same and looks the same after it comes out of the grinder. I still have to screen the trim and will update the weight of that as well. I ended up with 117g on the scale but I have also smoked 15g of popcorn buds over the past 2 weeks. Overall still please with 4.65oz on a plant under 15" from soil to canopy and grown with a Viparspectra 450 (209w actual draw). If i hadn't run into nute/ph issues, I would have done a more advanced defoil job which would have greatly helped density and weight but she was already stressed out enough. I also f'd up on the scrog. I kept her way to flat and her stretch shut down quickly so I ended up with only a few inches above the screen instead of 7 to 12 inches for better bud development. These are all mistakes easily corrected with experience and knowledge and I would have never got this far with out our wonderful community here whether chipping in on comments and questions or simply sharing your photos and diary notes to share what works and what doesnt work. This is such an amazing community to be a part of and really exciting to be part of the ground floor of the US and even global green awakening.

Cure 1 week - moisture in buds has redistributed nicely, buds are very firm, sticky when you squeeze or break apart. Jars have been opened twice a day for 1hr each first few days and now 1 per day for about an hour each. RH in jars has been 60-64%. Aromas are developing into a pine with sour lemon/pineapple. The smoke is a very clear and uplifting high. I actually have found it to be quite a social high and great for anxiety being at large social gatherings. Taste is improving as well, has classic strong pine notes on the exhale.

Week 3 of cure update - smoke is very balanced, not harsh by any means. Predominant flavor is pine follow by tropical sweetness. She's not knock you out potent and it does seem to fade away after 2 hours, but that could be due to some of the ph issues and nute issues I was experiencing during flowering. Its still a very pleasant uplifting experience. Buds are holding steady at 62% rh. Should be good now for long term storage.

She grew tall and strong. This lovely lady reached just over 4 ft tall and produced some heavy dense resin coated buds. The effects are an immediate body relaxation high with a mild head change, not quite a couch lock but great for releaving tension and unwinding. Very strong citrus pine and skunk aromas. After being in my cvault for a day and when I burped the container, my wife was sitting in the next room over and she exclaimed gdamn, and could smell it through the walls. Taste is pure citrus and pine very clean with out and harsh effects. This shouldn't require a super long cure and very happy with the results. The dense buds took an exceptionally long time to dry at 12 days. RH during drying has in the 55 to 68% and temps between 66 and 71. I still have 3 more thc auto seeds amungst 15 other stains and going to go outdoors in soil with the next run. Going to take advantage of the glorious So Cal sun and give my wallet a break on $200 monthly electric bills. Stay tuned...

What can I say? The smoke is absolutely everything I was hoping for. This is definitely a strong smoke and one that can easily put me on the couch with some spicy doritos and queso dip. While i do find it very relaxing, it does not make me drowsey so its suitable for a nice Saturday morning wake n bake. She has the classic piney citrus with mild fuel smell Gorilla Glue is known for. The nugs are fairly dense and completely covered in resin and trichomes, made some nice scissor hash trimming her up.
