Copper Chem f3 I am vaping, fast face rush and head buzz, quite rushy. First bowl had me mixing up some EWC and Cotton Burr Compost with Alfalfa and P Guano and other things to top dress my Marigolds and Mint, Basil, Comfryand Elephant Ears and stuff.
Did that and dusted the yard with 7 dust (fucking chiggers)
Came back, showered, shaved and here I am.
Motivational High!

I love the way nodes are stacking & high brix is looking good.
Nice job. :clap:
You know, that last part means a lot to me. Many of the new super potent strains are built on g13 or mendo that have a cough to them. Me no likey, it’s a shame.
Some strains are more 'greasy' and I've also found that too much phosphorous makes the smoke acrid.
I use a finisher that has higher levels of P & K but it's nothing like that super bloom stuff. ('Super bloom' also makes tomatoes taste like shit.)

I don’t use anything like that. I’m one of those people that could probably stand to feed their plants more. Mine tend to “fade” the entire flower cycle. Been doing dry amendments for a long time but happy frog recipe changed so I’ve been trying my own using DTE. So mostly organic with fox farm liquid back up. I’m just using the fox farm this time, may just keep on with it. I used to use it when I was underground and I know it’s results well.
That being said, most of the modern strains I’ve tried weren’t from my garden so I can’t speak to their grow style but I’m saying I have grown plenty of g13 crosses over the years and it has an expectorant quality as does mendo breath. Some cannabis does, it’s a known side effect of cannabis. I just like it smoother, like I can blow giant clouds of bubba or chemdog. Sour D will get ya sometimes. Ogkb takes the smooth cookies and gives it that cough. You know what I’m saying?! While I guess it could be grow technique, I find it to be consistent with some cultivars.

I love DTE products! Bio-Live is awesome for soil mixes and Bio-Fish is great for top dressing.

Switching from HID to LED made it necessary to really crank up the nutes, so my grow style is "semi organic". :eyesmoke:
(My lights are *very* bright.)

Do you mind me asking what your setup is like? I switched to led last year and I’m not having a hitch less transition. I’m noticing higher nute demand and cal-mag issues that are unusual for me. I’m making adjustments but I need to ask around more so I can avoid some of these things.

Revisiting this strain, gifted the beans few years ago from the breeder Resinheadsgenetics at a UK cup. Oranges with a hint of earth on the nose which has in the past followed through in to the flavour, works really well.
Jafa cake cookies is awesome smoke. I got a bud who gets that on the regular and it is damn tasty. Nice to see someone working with this strain here.

I run a black dog phyto-max2 1,000 and three platinum P900s.
At full power they pull almost 2,500w at the wall.

Mills has a nutrient calculator that comes in handy. (Feeding level = heavy)

I had read that nute uptake and water would be less but so far I find that if they do that they are stalling from low leaf surface temperature. The plants are telling me that they want more nutes, more mag but not necessarily more calcium.
What is your square feet? That’s a ton of power! I have 320 watts of logic pucks and 720 watts of strips over 24 sq.ft.
You confirmed my biggest issue, I feel like I’m over feeding but can’t catch them up. I feel like I must have locked them out or something or the ingredients are faulty, etc. my ph is in the right range though. Sigh, I’ll figure out how to run some leds eventually lol.
