They were grown under a 200W fluro for 30 days. During this time it was clear to see that I was going to have two very different plants. One was an ‘indica’ dom. Shape, while the other was on the sativa side of things. I trimmed the sativa one to see how it handles stress and its still going as write this report. So this report is on the ‘indica’ dom. plant. Both seeds were hydrated and within 24hrs they had popped out a tap root. They were next put into a 2litre pot of soil, dololime, perlite, & worm humus. During this time all they received was watet The growth of the plant was not slow, nor was it super fast. But it kept going at a nice steady pace, leaving me with nothing to worry about apart from watering her. After around the 30 days of veg she was about 11-13 inches in height. This is the height I like to flip all my plants at into 12/12, apart from any big sativa of course!! When the plant was ready to be flipped into 12/12 it was re-potted into a 10 liter pot with again dololime Epsom salts. I also added fish blood & bone meal to help with the flowering process. In the first week of flower the plant didn’t seem to move at all which can sometimes happen. But in the second week I started to see the plant grow. For the next three weeks I watched as the plant gained height, no side branching at all, just height. All the time just being watered as the soil was already fed.
By the end of week 5 the plant had stopped growing and was clearly now focusing on budding. Then some one decided we should have 25 degree heat for two weeks which drove my room temps up to around 34-41c at one point!!! But to its credit Fruit Spirit kept on plugging along showing no signs of stress at all – which is a rare thing when it comes to fem seeds. Most I have tried and stressed chuck out male flowers. Some are far worse then others, but credit to Royal Queen, no nanners on this girl.
Over the next 4 weeks I just sat back & watched & watered as the buds swelled up and the resin formed. All the time the smell of the plant was changing from a citrus to a berry with an extra funk I can’t put my finger on. But it’s a good funk.
Over all I enjoyed growing this plant as it was a breeze in my room, no hassle what so euer. If you are a grower who buys Female seeds then I would give these guys a go as from what I’m reading and seeing as well as talking to other growers they (Royal Queen) have some good stuff you can get your hands on for next to nothing cost wise. I have been informed by some one who’s judgment I trust that their Northern lights is a sight to behold! I might just have to have a Look my self.
