Strain: Black Stone
Grower Name: Embra
Nutrients: after 5 weeks, Grow and bloom Oldtimer range, added mollases, Nutes @ 4ml per litre
Lights type and schedule: First 2 weeks, HS1 LED, weeks 3-8 315w CMH, Schedule: 24/0 first week, then 18/6
Days from Seed: 57
Harvest Points: Day 57, due to overcrowding and odour issues – not related directly to Balck Stone, but an overall need to cull numbers as I was over exuberant and thought I could flower 8 plants in a 1.2 x 0.6 tent with staggered starting times – lesson learned!
So, all down at day 57 – 2 plants.
Dry Yield (grams): I’m not the weighing type but at a pretty dry 56% humidity it is @ 28g dead – hitting them now with the 62% Boveda packs.
Growth Comments: No issues with hunger, over feeding, or issues with soil. Superb dark Green foliage all the way through.
Two green Phenos – one at 12 inches, other at 18 inches, both showed same characteristics.
Growth impressive, they just kept rolling on doing thier thing with little to no input from me – #I wish all plants were like this.
No deficencies shown.
Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): Sweet smell, not overpowering. Harvest was very afghani.
The Smell: Floral, Thyme, when opened the jars, blown away by a deep cream vanilla smell
The Smoke: Too early to tell, I vape, and early as it is, at low temps <200, it is fine, no issues, a bit green to be expected. Above 200 it is dry and catches the throat a bit – curing will reduce this issue.
