We’ll occasionally add some grow and smoke reports to the blog to fill you in on what goes on from seed to harvest, and what you can expect from a variety of strains available out there.
This first Grow Report post is about the Weed Seed Shop Feminized Skunk seeds. This is a great plant for beginning growers, is very affordable ($30/24 Euros for 10 seeds!), and is an excellent producer of potent marijuana buds. In fact, I’d recommend it to anyone – beginner or experienced – who likes a well balanced “Skunk”; the dried, cured buds have a balanced aroma of skunk/mint/pine, and one variant phenotype even produced a lemon/diesel smoke that was quite different from the others. More on that later.
We grew 8 of the 10 seeds, 4 indoors, and 4 outdoors. Of the outdoor plants, we culled one plant that was faltering and became further weakened by insects. I should note that this was most likely a soil pH problem that was entirely our fault – the other 3 plants have thrived, and were only strengthened by the occasional insect attack. They required very little tending, and developed into strong, bushy indica-style plants. We topped the plants twice to encourage four thick top branches and keep the height manageable. This can be seen in the next picture, which was taken after about 8 weeks of outdoor growth:
These plants will be finished in another 4 weeks or so (they are flowering now). As a comparison, check out the next picture, Read More…
