Chicken or egg, was it the strain/genetics or the grower? In this case, it was most likely the grower’s fault. I didn’t manage this plant well and was content with some experimenting. So, no real issue with Crop King Seeds or the Early Miss strain.

I was content keeping this plant on 24 hour lighting, no issue with my previous experiences. I wasn’t full invested so I did not increase the pot size, and was fine with a smaller pot. In hindsight, this probably had a factor on yield. I decided to try “natural,” as in no LST, defoliation, pruning, techniques of any kind. It produced one larger bud but was a hassle to manage in the grow room, and difficult to water and move around.

Between weeks 4 and 5 it etarted to experience soil and/or pH and/or nutrient problems. The leaves quickly yellowed and it was stuck struggling for the rest of its life. This was the major storyline of the grow and effected the strength and yield. As it drank less and less and time was winding down I also miscalculated and fed more flowering food with just over two weeks to go, with an expectation to water/flush for two weeks. The plant sat in that last feeding and did not dry out, however I did majorly flush it before harvest.

Back-to-back grows on this strain that were just allright, thus the ratings.

It's a strong bud, you won't be able to do tasks which require focus but it's amazing for creative work like dancing, singing and drawing.

No problems seeding. Lots of growth. Plant was very resistant to light damage and rebounded within its short life span. Nugs came out very crystally and visual. Next time I’ll use a bigger pot. Good for beginners. Light, sativa high with a sweet/sour/musty taste.

Not sure what happened on this one but just started to die overnight.

This wasnt an auto as well and not sure what she is but I cut and dried her before things got too bad.
She was a weird grow from the start.

Major head-high...had me grinning like a fool for a couple hours, and gave me serious munchies. I'm holding off smoking any more until it's cured a little more.

I really can't complain too much about this strain because 4 plants yielded over a pound of tasty, powerful bud in about 12 sq ft of garden space. I really like this strain to smoke, but as far as growing it, this was probably the first and last time for me. I prefer a more predictable growth structure/height in a small space.

EM#3 required about 9 sq ft by herself and had to have help with supporting her branches...She was such a pain in my ass, but she was a half-pounder, so...all is forgiven.:grin:
I ended up making 90ml of stout e-liquid (95%ish) and got about 5 grams of bubble hash from my EM trim.

All in all not a bad strain to deal with. I had some challenges with this grow that were environmental, so I won't try to blame the genetics. I see the potential for a really nice yielding plant. There are still four more beans for this strain, so we'll see what the next one's bring.
I'm pretty happy with the harvest, ended up pulling some nice fat nugs of her. It has a nice lemony scent to it.
