*Positives: Rapidly-growing fat buds, fast maturation, short & stocky, amazing tart/fruity smell.
*Negatives: Asymmetry, prone to yellowing & leaf trouble (spots, burns), sensitive to underwatering, small yield.
IPCBD appears to take on many different heights & shapes depending on grow conditions & phenotype. I went into this expecting a taller & more robust plant since I was growing in a regular sized pot as opposed to a Solo cup. Was a bit surprised she stayed so short & stocky, though this wasn't a bad thing since stealth was important. However, I was somewhat bothered by other weaknesses in the form of orange leaf spots, crispy tips & leaves that yellowed rapidly in Week 7. She also exhibited some major asymmetry--the left branch grew much bigger & farther out from the main stem than the right & several buds were smaller on one side despite frequent rotation to ensure equal illumination. She was actually *more* finicky than my Solo cup plant and yielded a mere 0.3g more in dry weight, which was disappointing. Despite the cheap-o grow setup I expected an increased yield due to the larger container if nothing else...more room for the roots to stretch out.
That said, I'm pleased with the overall quality considering the conditions I was working with. Once the budlets formed they exploded quickly & never slowed. She responded well to ponytailing & leaf-tucking and bounced back from stem-pinching even when I accidentally perforated her stem. I also appreciate the short grow time very much. Would gladly grow this strain again if I had the seeds.
Overall, IPCBD is a sensitive plant that likes frequent feeding in flower but will reward growers with a thick main cola even under less than ideal conditions. She finished in 75 days under weak CFLs & created quite a stink for such a small girl. She would make a great addition to any grow room, even if it's just to fill a small corner of your tent.
