Growth Comments: Sexed at 18 days by 50 she was very well developed. Some color on end buds. No problems, yellowed late as water uptake slowed. Mississ finished her and waters a little everyday different than every 2-3 that I would. Outstanding yield for her size.

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): “Rotten Grapes in an old Gym Shoe” Late flower smells were BO and Rotting Fruit. Very little sweet notes. After a month jarred, less rot more fruit, BO has mellowed to more of a diesel, some sweet flowery smells developed.
