There we go. Welcome back buds! 18 weeks from seed, and this is the end of 2017 growth cycle.
Royal Highness has been a good girl. As I said many times, this was a density growth, or, better, a cycle intended to grow many different strains with no expectations about the yield, due to the limited space.
I never topped or trainer her, and she grew up partially in the shadow of nearest and bigger plants. She came out like a Christmas tree, with a big cola on the top, and smaller colas on lower branches. The yield is definitely a lot under the expectations, but that’s not a problem since I just wanted to try the strain. I say this because I’ll be the only person smoking all these strain. And I don’t smoke a lot, so yeah, you can guess how long I’ll take to smoke them all.
Just one thing about final weeks of flowering: I don’t know why, but she automatically cropped her top cola. I initially thought it could be mold, but it was really a voluntary crop. So strange!
Her smell is so creamy and makes me remember the AK47 auto by RQS I’ve grown some years ago. I tried a sample bud some weeks ago when THC levels were still low, so I’m not writing a smoke report now. Will do it as soon as buds are ready.
