What strain is it? Granny Derkle- A strain desired for Sweet aroma and taste. Used as a calmative, while still energetic. Pleasant relaxed and clear headed. It is a Purple Diesel which is Marc Emery's NYC Diesel crossed to a Purple Haze, crossed to the Grandaddy Purple, Then crossed back to the Purple Urkel.
What percentages? 80% Indica/20% Sativa
Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Vegging.
If in Veg... For how long? It has been vegging since late April. It's estimated to mature at 8 weeks.
Soil mix? I used Fox Farms soil and a wonderful mix of local compost to amend the native soil.
Any Pests ? I had some minor leaf damage due to some mystery insects at first but due to the size of the plants ( currently 7' tall by 5' wide), the only damage comes from an occasional deer. I'm using Liquid fence around the area, so hopefully it will repel them enough from doing too much damage.
How often are you watering? I ran a drip system through the area to give them 4 gallons per hour and have found that giving them about 4-6 gallons a week during the summer is keeping them healthy.
Type and strength of ferts used? I don't use much besides dried chicken droppings scratched into the soil.
I'm new to this and this is my first time growing in the ground. I am surprised at the size and look forward to the end result. I will get more photos up as I progress. Unfortunately I cannot post photos of my other plants due to their location. I'm careful to abide by the laws of my state and it is the thieves that concern me more than anything else.
