He figured out that five Frisian Dew plants would probably be enough for his 1.5 x 6 metre plot. Hi-Five didn’t want to make use of the full season, as his plants otherwise would have gotten too big. He could have started cultivation as early as at the beginning of April, but waited until the beginning of May instead, sowing five feminised Frisian Dew seeds into jiffypots contained in a heated mini greenhouse. They all had germinated very well after a couple of days and were placed onto a south-facing windowsill. Two and half weeks after germination, Hi-Five started to gradually acclimatize the plants to outdoors, hardening them off by exposing them to sunlight and night coldness a little bit Tonger every day. That procedure also helped the plants getting more solid stems, due to the wind, lignification quickly advanced. At the beginning of June, Hi-Five planted the five Frisian Dew plants into the garden side bed he had prepared in February already.
The Frisian Dew plants grew very well. Thanks to the soil’s high nutrient content and water holding capacity power, Hi-Five didn’t have to water and/or fertilise the plants in the first two months, he could give free rein to mother nature. Summer advanced, and at the end of July, the feminised Frisian Dew plants revealed their gender — they all proved to be female. Hi-Five happily watched the resin glands prosper on all the plants, as flowering got into full gear in the course of August.
At the beginning of the flowering stage, he had started to fertilise his plants with BioBizz’s organic “Bio-Bloom” (N-P-K = 2.0-6.0-3.5) once a week. The plants became heavily resinous (most obviously thanks to the influence of mighty Super Skunk genetics), in fact, these were the most resinous outdoor plants Hi-Five had ever experienced! The “green apple tree roof” that widely protected the plants from heavy rain falls may have contributed to the extraordinarily high resin content, preventing the resin glands from being washed off the buds. The five Frisian Dew plants did not produce any male flowers, becoming 100% female, so they passed the femi test with flying colors. And “with colors” can be taken literally here: Two of the five plants produced lovely purple buds, thanks to the Purple Star genetics in Frisian Dew. Another very positive result was that mold wasn’t an issue at all, all the five Frisian Dew plants exhibited totally healthy high-grade sinsemilla buds in the end. Which was uniformly reached by the five plants at the beginning of October.
