I want to start accumulating data on the growing of this particular strain, the Dark Devil Auto by Sweet Seeds. I chose this strain based solely on its picture on Herbie's site, such a girl thing to do, I know, but the instinct served me well. This easy to grow strain rewarded me with the finest buzz I've grown to date. I know of one other grower on this site, bobrown14, who got the same effects that I got from my harvest, not surprising since we grow in comparable soils, based on the Clackamas Coots-style of Living Organic Soil (LOS). Reading some dud reviews of this strain convinces me that the soil choice may have been a big contributing factor to what I experienced.
This strain kept me high the entire time I smoked it. What I mean by that is that there were often spans of up to 24 hours and I was still feeling effects. Both Bob and I had borderline hallucinogenic effects. My experience was the zippy high I'd been searching for, one that had me out walking along the river or cleaning the house while I hummed a happy tune.
This is SweetSue's obsessive strain, and I'm not shy about it. It occurred to me that it might be fun to run some seeds side-by-side with others who were experimenting with the Dark Devil Auto too, and so we gathered three of us to start. This journal is open to anyone who wants to document your own Dark Devil Grow.
The only thing I ask is that you stop once a week and add an update of your grow, if one is in progress. I welcome any and all reposts of previous grows, should you want yours included. I will maintain the journal, so if you disappear in the middle of your grow, I'll probably come looking for you.
That's my only rule. I want us to have fun with this. We have an opportunity to share information on the Dark Devil Auto but also on techniques on increasing the harvest yield and potency of autos. This may be a new approach to data collection on a particular strain here at 420 and I'm going to be winging it, so I ask for your patience if things get challenging. I don't anticipate any concerns.
Jump in whenever you're ready. The water's fine.
