Since it is my first led grow, i'd like to share one last journal with you.
Today i put ten female Stardawg and three freebee seeds into 4 x 4 cm rock wool cubes under a Samsung led strip 24/0. I was looking for a sativa dominant strain with indica like buds and stumbled upon this one. I got it from marijuana-seeds but can't quite determine which breeder it is. But that doesn't matter much to me, no pheno is the same anyway.
The subscription sounds promising if you ask me.
Although the lineage suggests it is more indica and so you would expect this to be a couch-lock inducing super stone, that is not the case. The appearance, effects and aroma of this variety definitely leans towards Sativa dominance. Highly energising and euphoric the cerebral high that this strain gives is nothing short of a joy. The parents of Stardawg are the Original Chemdog#4 crossed with Tres Dawg (which itself is a Chemdawg x Afghani cross), meaning that it has refined and concentrated all of the best aspects of the line into one beautifully punchy package. THC Levels are regularly tested in excess of 22%, but 19-20% would be the normal range for most growers.
Because of the Afghani way back in its family tree the overall height of the plant stays relatively short for a sativa type plant. That being said, it still tops out between 150cm-2m indoors, and considerably taller outdoors. This means that training and topping may be needed if space is limited. The leaves are longer and thinner, although not pure sativa “fingers”, with a light “unripe lime” colour to them. Stardawg is quite hardy and will put up with a fair amount of rough treatment. It has a good resistance to pests and diseases, although in very high humidity areas it can sometimes be susceptible to mould if it gets wet.
For medical patients Stardawg is a must for people experiencing anxiety or depression type disorders. It has received especially positive reviews from PTSD sufferers, and it is also an excellent appetite stimulant.
Truth be told, i prefer cuts but i didn't have the patience to wait for them to root. I will certainly take cuts from these very expensive seedlings and would advice everybody considering to buy these seeds to do so.
The Led light is made by my very gifted friend and is 660 watts. I'll post pictures of it later when in motion.
