Growth Comments: I had fertilizer issues with a bottle of opened 6 month old Advanced Nutrients going sour…I was totally stumped the first round and was thinking a number of things were the problem, but it wasn’t until i saw the same problems occurring on run 2 that i realised it was the nutes that were the problem, not me. I didn’t want to hit the hydro store again, so instead I decided to just run Bloom Nutrients for the whole cycle… worked out alright!!

Indoor Grow report
Growth Rate: 5/10 – I am rating this plant with the errors I made being included in the rating. Tiny girl, but hey did just fine considering no fresh veg nutes were used!!
Flower Density 8/10 – Nice denses nugs. Not rock hard, but really nice solid density once dried
Flower Potency 8/10 – Very potent bud on the Black Stone, certainly leaning toward a heavy Body stone, with fairly strong psychological effects.
Flower Scent Strength – 7/10 Nice strong smell on the Black Stone. Not open a jar and fill the room with stink, but she does have a pretty strong smell.
Flower Scent Appeal – 9/10 There is some pine in the back ground, bu there is also a deep berry smell that is just sweet. Very, very appealing.
Flower Visual Appeal – 7/10 Very nice coloured bud, with a nice light purple and sometimes red tinge…very nice. Excellent crystal.
Mold Resistance – 10/10 Not a speck of mold on this plant…I have minimal circulation in the grow space, so the last 2 weeks i have a PC fan pointing near the main cola.
Final Comments: I Have grown 3 different Stone Dragon’s and this Black Stone and all 4 plants have impressed me greatly. Lets see, great medical benefits, excellent smell and taste, small frame perfectly suited to a vertically limited growing space, and these plants have all packed on some major bud versus the amount of space they take up. From now on I will be growing a Stone Dragon and Black Stone every time I fire up the stealth cabinet.
