A little weak on flavor, but this strain has a great chance to get frosty AF. One of 5 plants came out a bit funky and few trichomes, but the others were true sticky-icky. I've noticed a bit more flavor on this particular harvest, which was cut about 10 days sooner than the previous run. Nugs are denser, too. Could just be different seeds, but all the good ones were similar 2nd run, excluding the 1 oddball with ugly leaves and weak yield.

Guessing this one has a stronger resistance to WPM as it was exposed and never showed signs on leaves like Garlic Storm and Future #1 did in same space... Future #1 is almost certainly weak AF resistance.. it caused a problem at end of summer last year too... possibly the source this time.. fucking dumpster fire pheno, that.

Back to Platinum Gelato... Not as tasty as i hoped, but not bad. Unique taste.. hard to put a finger on it - along the lines of incense but not that dirt taste that often accompanies it, so i have some hope this one should taste good, if not exactly what i like. Fairly potent, too. Since it doesn't check all boxes, going with 9/10 on this one. Garlic storm may not be as pretty, but it leaves my fingers stickier and has a great taste (gave that a 10, as it floors me).

So, she's pretty, but not a homerun. I would have bet on the opposite for these two strains given pictures only, but that is not the case as they cure.

Update, sorry i was quite high earlier.. imagine that..

Yield - Fairly good, but not super dense nugs. Filled 4 32oz mason jars comfortably for cure (~80% full, a good guess). Minimum 1 oz per jar, but likely more. 120g is a conservative estimate. Think i guessed that on gs and it ended up 130-some? I like to under-promise and err toward that end on purpose.

Frosty, sticky, and stanky. Distinctly fruity aroma and flavor. Just placing and moving buds around for pictures got fingers sticky.

Probably needed 3-5 more days at most. I had some hints of WPM and say enough amber to warrant an early harvest. Cut off what i could, sprayed plant down, gave it a long dark period to dry and had a late night harvest.

Already has a good flavor as judged by crumbs i snipped off accidentally while removing leaves. I was ripped for a couple hours, so it is potent.

** Not an endorsement of the product. The information is outstanding, though. If you follow the link, you'll see it isn't a typical 'sales' page. It's informational, then it does get to a product at some point. It does a good job explaining how to compare products and the limitiations of some of the specifications often used. It even tells you how to grow your own.

@Nobody01, Thanks for the answer. No algae on top, all down low. I didn’t mention that this pot has no drainage. Should make things considerably more difficult. It is what it is. This is a novelty plant just for kicks I blocked all the light by putting black gorilla tape around pot. Should die , if not at least I won’t see it lol

@NorCal_Kannabliss, This is my first grow diary, but not my first grow. Taking micro bio and org chem for fun earlier in my life has helped a lot lately, lol. For some reason in undergrad I took a lot of "weed-out" classes for other rmajors, lol. Soc 304 with an easy "A?" Nope, not for me.

So, 100 people are following (recently) and my only quesiton is... Why would you put yourselves through this? Bwahahahah

Vegetative Area - "240W" Driver, 6-strip LED that runs under 200 watts. A 48" length split in two sections. I keep up to 6 donors on the side (20"x32") with 2 strips about 12" apart over the 'donor area,' and the other side has the remaining 4 strips about 8" apart covering up to 28"x28" 'crop area.' Simply a wooden frame with polyfilm wrapped around it. Velcro front for easy access, mesh intakes on side and mesh/hooded ceiling. Added a raised bench to handle drainage. This thing looks like a hobo's mansion. No pictures of the outside... ever Bwahaha, it was put together as an afterthought with spare parts.

Bloom Area - (2) "240W" drivers, 12-strips LED 5" apart running around 400 watts or less. They are about 13"-16" from canopy. This covers a 12.5 sq. ft. area. Box is lined with polyfilm and plenty of circulation. Added a raised bench with some drainage buckets, not seen in picture. https://growdiaries.com/diaries/62196-gorrila-glue-4-white-widow-durban-poison-grow-journal-by-nobody01/week/312239#gallery=2349134. Light labrynth ducts are built into side walls.

Pots: 3 gallon polyfilm bags, disposable

Substrate

50/50 ph'd/processed spahgnum peat and some combination of vermiculite and/or perlite

Fertilizer is a simple "Jack's 3-2-1" but slightly diluted from instructions. 3.4g Part A / 1.9g Part B / .9g epsom salt == per gallon. I believe i need more of Part B in the summer due to absorbing increased humidity (calcium nitrate is 'part b'). This value ranges 1.9g-2.1g.

Hello...Philindicus tells me your doing great things with JR Peters products, so I thought I would give you a follow and learn a few things. I'm currently doing my first DWC grow in the Jacks 3-2-1 style, but with Master Blend nutrients (more readily available to me in Canada). So far, for a first attempt, it's working well,.Only another 5 weeks or so for me to ef it up, lol. I see you have some great links and info listed here. Thanks, much appreciated.:v::sunflower::on::fire:.

@DeaneR, Sorry, haven't been getting notifications from profile comments lately. Should have great results - keep ec/pH/biome in check etc. Only thing i'd recommend is to only use that nutrient setup until it's clockwork to harvest. Then dabble in the different mixes for different phases or any other sophistication like bloom boosters etc. Form a good baseline, first. FWIW, I'm still in midst of that process too.

@GDub51, I've seen anecdotal videos of it used as a rooting agent for clones too. I'll have to check out the research paper when i have more time. I like reading white papers and the like. That web site isn't liking my vpn much.
