re: Grow#1 - 2014 - Featuring Critical & Fruit Spirit - Indoor - LED - High Brix

I have an update on the indoor girls on day 53 of 12/12. The Fruit Spirit girls bud's are so heavy that the branches are falling over. I tried to get a pic of them falling into each other, but not sure if you can see it very well. I also took a look at the trichomes on the Fruit Spirit girls , and it seems that they are ready to go. I plan to harvest them Friday night. Still need a week or two on the Critical girls.

I have an update today of the Fruit Spirit indoor girls. They both came down today, after being placed in a dark room for ~36 hours. The first post is the Growology girl, she was very heavy. If you were to read back in this journal you'd see that both of the Growology girls were at a disadvantage starting out smaller than the T&J tea girls. I am somewhat surprised by the results. I washed both plants with Doc Buds washing technique, using H2O2 in one bucket (warm water), Lemon Juice & Baking Soda in another bucket (very warm water ~120°F), and finally chlorinated tap water in the final bucket (Cold Water)

Wet weights with stems (so not realistic at all, but is significant)

Growology Girl - 309g

T&J Tea Girl - 204g

They look yum. How's the dried weight? How's the smoke? Have you harvested the critical? What was the weight? Well done timothypaul.

I harvested the critical on Sunday, still drying. Will post update with weights once i get the critical dried. I have not smoked any of the fruit spirit yet, just getting over a virus. It takes me forever to fight off sicknesses now, as my arthritis medication weakens my immune system. Will post the fruit spirit smoke report soon though.

I have an update today on the outdoor girls. The Blue Cheese is really getting purple, with all of this cold weather we've had. Even though they are getting purple, they still look very health. I'm very happy with the way they are progressing. Should only be another week or 2 at the most, and they'll be ready.

Another update on the Critical girls. I cut them down on Sunday, and they seemed like they were dry, and ready to start curing.

I tried out some of the FS last night. Smoke was amazing really. I think it's better than anything that I've gotten at the local dispensaries. Not trying to brag, but I really am pleased with the quality. The smoke was smooth, for only curing about a week, and the high was more of an uplifting high, and I seemed to keep all of my wits about me. Just what I need for daytime.

I have the final weights from the grow

Fruit Spirit Growology - 70g
Fruit Spirit T&J - 51g

Critical Growology - 84g
Critical T&J - 57g

Total 262g

By my calculations that is 0.72g/w

I am very happy to get this kind of result from my first grow. And I will see what I can do to beat that.

Awesome man, I am busy puffing on Fruit Spirit that has been cured for a couple months and have to say it's one of my all time fave strains. I grew it 12/12 from seed and burned the top of her and she just grew out into short and fat shape but some of the tightest nugs i have ever seen, has some beautiful blue hues and smells amazing. Love it. You tried the critical yet? I am using oil made from power flower which is nice, prefer the oil to the smoke tbh. grew a northern light from RQS and currently have WW,Skunk xl, special queen and special kush on the go. Have quite a few more RQS beans to try and may do the AK auto next. Either those or THC bomb auto havent decided yet. Great grow, keen to hear how the blue cheese turned out too.
