Best auto yield to date (never thought I would see a day when auto yields more < 100g of dry bud).
Growing was rather easy, and she tackled cold nights like a champ. I'm more of a sativa guy and this feels like a heavy indica dominant strain. The aroma from this behemoth is intense but dull overall (earth, wood, pine blended together), I almost wish there was a hint of a citrus, fruit, or even diesel to mix things up a bit. Potency is spot on for someone with a high tolerance, but becuase I'm not a fan of the terpene profile, I can't give it more than 7/10. Still, enjoyed the hell out of growing this girl:)

Update: Even having multiple choices, I keep reaching for this bud more than more. Smell sort of developed, but whats keeping me fr coming for more is quality stone I get from it. Rating changed to 8 stars

Chopped her down. Got 2 buds in the garbage and 1 left. The last 2 shots are of the bud I'm keeping .. Gonna give it another look to make sure there is nothing nasty in there (not that I'm certain of what I am searching for :)
I'm no too upset about the loss - this was an experiment of sort anyway plus I'm sitting on 8 jars of buds curing as I type :)
I've learned a few things:
You can indeed clone autos - they wont grow to 6 feet, but it looks like the yield could be more than if you left the branch on. I wonder if this is because they continue the donor plant's time line or if they spent majority of their finite life on establishing roots and such.
Keep an eye on these plants (especially outdoors) - bud rot doesnt mess around and moves fast! If I would have realized the symptoms sooner I could have save a cola ...
Oh well - live and learn and grow more buds :)

I have a hard time rating this thing because I haven't smoked it yet and I didn't treat it so well - I topped it, defoliated it, had it in a 1 gallon pot and flowered it in a 12/12 cycle. While most of this may affect the yield for an auto, I don' t know that these factors contributed to its longer than expected time to harvest. I wouldn't even mention the time it took if it wasn't called Auto SPEED Bud! I feel bad giving this only an average rating , but the breeder is making these claims and it just wasn't my experience. Maybe I'll update the rating after I do a smoke test and also see how the clone performs.
