Very nice smooth smoke. I'm split between saying slightly more of a Indica type body high with a pleasant head high to start. This is a great anytime smoke that doesn't leave you lethargic. The smell was definately creamy and reminiscent of slightly over baked cookies which was very amusing. The plants grew to 36 inches which is a bit tall for my grow set up. They would truly have appreciated having more room to spread out. I pretty much stripped a good 2/3+ of the lower leaves and bud sites over the course of the grow to ensure the upper buds bulked up nicely. These girls took everything I threw at them intense lighting, nutes, drought stress etc. my usual grow torture techniques. Oddly enough I had one plant which grew and fox tailed significantly. I though it was light or heat stress but my ultimate conclusion is it was just a phenotype variation genetic throw back. The calyx on this one were the largest I've seen before compared to her sisters and were covered in a thick layer of trichomes. Wish I could have pulled some more color out of them but my area was hit with a warm spell which meant I couldn't get a nice temperature drop/swing in my tent. Either way this was my best harvest at just over 3 ounces per plant. I feel if given larger pots and more space to spread out they could have pushed out some more weight. :+1::+1:

Very pleasant strain to grow handled grow/light/nutrient/LST/drought stress very well. Very nice bud density and heavy dense trichome coverage. Harvest went quickly the plants and buds were very easy to trim. The smoke was very smooth and especially well flavored. Yield was typical for my plant size of just over 2 ounces per plant of high quality dried bud. :wink:

Fast buds Blackberry Kush is a very appealing strain which was fairly easy to grow.

I loved the shorter green phenotype which eventually turned purple on the outside of the buds with a greener inner bud color. The plant structure was ideal for my grow set up and was able to hit her hard with nice light intensity during bloom with no issues. The bud structure had a nice dense high calyx to sugar leave ratio and was heavily covered in trichomes just the way I like it. She handled nutrients like a champ no signs of nutrient burn.
The other two phenotype were a lot taller and stretched with a longer inter node distance. The plants held the branches up well for most of the grow but I was concerned that the weight of the buds would break some stems during the ripening stage. The stems of these two were a bit on the hollow side in my opinion with thinner wall structure when compared to the green phenotype. I feel these two may have benefited from a higher dose of calcium during the course of growing. The bud coloration was outstanding with a nice purple to dark violet shades. The bud structure was a bit looser on one plant and the other was fairly dense with calyx but not as dense as the green phenotype. This one plant seemed to do a bit of fox tailing in the end of bloom even after cutting back on the amount of red spectrum light. The very tall and dominant main colas were swung to the outside edges of the tent because they were too close to my light which was maxed out in height. The lower buds received more light than the upper cola but lacked heavy trichome coverage. I believe these two plants possibly would have benefited from being topped or fimmed then heavy LST training to create a more even canopy to maximize light intensity to the bud sites produce a heavier denser trichome coverage.

Harvesting was done on day 72 and was easy on the taller 2 which had less leaf coverage, the green phenotype took a bit longer she had a lot more fan and sugar leaves to remove. I had about a 15 to 20% amber to mostly cloudy /milky with some clear trichomes on the main cola when they were chopped. It was very difficult to see/judge color because of the darker color of the buds. Photos of the trichomes don't do the plant justice by any means.
The smoke was fairly smooth with a slightly sweet ,a bit earthy with a nice light floral finish which is hard to real put my finger on to describe. It gave me a nice relaxed head and entire body type of high which was very pleasant and enjoyable not at all over powering definately a good evening time smoke to put your mind to rest. Definitely have some good munchies on hand for this one.
I'll admit this wasn't my best grow but I was able to get some nice colorful buds out of them. I have a few more seeds left and would like to grow this strain again at some point hopefully trying a few different training techniques on them, definately hit them harder with some calcium and push them to their limits.:wink:

Tq for your help mate. Much appreciated. It was a dodgy PH meter in the end. I thought the PH was really low when it wasn't so I created my own nurient lockout with PH up. I think the brown was Calcium deficiency too. Anyway I am just so relieved to be at this stage for the first time ever. Some of the trichomes have gone amber, not many but won't be long. I can't wait.
Thanks again
Andy
