LED Skunk #1 High Brix

Recommended Posts

Technical details:

 

Grow space: A corner of my closet that is about 21in x 21in x 60in (53.3 cm x 53.3 cm x 1.52m) The walls are covered with Orca Grow film.

 

Lighting Source: :

1. Main- Custom built COB based LED arrays [Vegetative: (2) 6500K Citizen CLU048 80CRI diodes] [Flowering: (4) 3500K Citizen CLU048 90CRI diodes]

2. Supplementary- Two 26 watt Exo-Terra Reptile UV A/B CFL bulb. (Generally speaking and for anyone wondering how much UV to add to a grow space. The Sun puts out about 10% UV radiation.)

 

Lighting Schedule: 1. (Gas Lantern Routine) Vegetative: 12 on / 5.5 off / 1 on / 5.5 off 2. Flowering: Starting with 9 on / 15 off decreasing down to, possibly, 6 on /18 off

 

Container: Starter pot- A one gallon Smart Pot "transplanter" pot, Finishing pot: A five gallon Smart Pot.

 

Grow Medium: (Second Run Soil) 1. Amended ProMixHP (ProMixHP is sphagnum peat moss, with endo-micorrihaeza, a starter charge of Dolomite Lime, and perlite) The amendments added to the fresh ProMixHP include: a number of missing trace minerals such as boron, some rock powders, beneficial bacteria, and 19.5lb (8.85kg) of earthworm castings with an NPK ratio of 1-1-0

 

Organic Nutrients: "Doc Bud's" High Brix Blend Kit.

 

Water: Tap water

 

Co2 source: An open window

 

Humidity control: Wet paper towels sticking out of a plastic bottle.

 

Genetics: Seedsman: Skunk #1

 

Current Progress: The seed is currently wrapped in a wet paper towel and aught to be planted in soil fairly soon.

 

Thoughts:

1. Like the Katsu Kush and Sannies Jack, this seed was freebie and sat around in its container until recenty. I have not moved yet and have more time to let this one vegetate longer.

2. I have "Hindu Kush" on order and waiting for it to arrive.

3. The white circular soil/ground covers are cut from a segment of Orca Grow film and help reflect light back up into the plant.

The grow itself is now complete and I am currently letting the harvest dry out more before weighing it. I'll post more details and photos after I have the pre-cure harvest weight.  The feeding routine was similar to the what I mentioned during previous grows I have posted.

The plant itself grew to about 2ft(60.9cm) tall and was wider than my grow space. I am not sure of the phenotype though. Going off of looks... the initial harvest weight seemed like 4-5 ounces. 

Although I have never tried Skunk#1 before this grow. The floral aroma is sweet and somewhat sour, which is said to be typical of traditional Skunk#1. While trimming, the sticky plant sap resins kept making me think of a sour lemon flavoured cotton candy.  I can understand how the strain gets the "Skunk" name. However if you have ever been downwind from a recent skunk spray, the pungent scent in the floral aroma is nothing like smell of the actual animal's self defence spray.

Wow, 4 or 5 ounces is a lot for a 2-foot tall plant. From experience I can tell you the flavor really comes into play after its cured. Good times ahead!
