In the end there can only be one winner, and for this round, it's the Amherst. #1 of the 4 HSO seeds grown and #1 overall. She was not an easy grow; transplanting to supersoil, LST'ing certain ways, watering too little or too much, she let you know sher was bothered at every corner. She was small until probably the last two weeks of veg and even then, didn't seem like she'd be the best going into flower.
Then she exploded. And fattened, and purpled out. My pheno definitely seems to lean more indica though this is a mostly sativa strain. A big funky oily soury smelling putple plant is what she ended up as in the end, coming from behind to finish the race and finishing up right at 8 weeks. Even without a cure she is such a strong and immense flavor; think of drinking a sour diesel milkshake, the flavor is soury gas with a creamy, almost sweet top that is absolutely a pleasure to smoke.
I'm going to muster all of my will power and hide this jar for at least 2 months. I need to see this one through to her full potential.
Definitely a harder grow, but worth it, I would recommend it on strength of the end product alone. Definitely top shelf goodness. Well done, HSO!
