  Breeder's Description - 'New York City Diesel'
The N.Y.C Diesel has its roots in the Big Apple, a friend brought the seeds and said that it was the best pot he ever smoked, he had dreads down to the ground so I believed him. This Cannabis tastes and smells like Ripe Red Grapefruits, once you touch the fresh buds you can't smell the other strains in your room or garden.

N.Y.C Diesel will leave you an Exotic Taste, an Exotic Smell and an Exotic High.

NYCD is a cross of a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani. I germed 4 seeds and got 2 nice females. These plants are a breeze to grow. They do get a little top heavy and may require some staking as one of mine did. This is an excellent yeilding strain. The buds have a Sativa look but they are huge and dens ...continued

My baby's momma was raised in the swamplands to be a hearty & vigorous grower. She apparently passed these traits onto my little girl. While I witnessed the Diesel in varying degrees of indica/sativa mix, I chose the Indica dom to be mine. Out of the 10 beans germed, all 10 popped with only 2 males.

During veg growth, I kept her short & squat, trimming & FIMming as we went along. Veg growth was approx. 45 days of quick & vigorous growth. She had a nice odor during veg. Very mild but nice indeed. A snap to grow & she seemed to like her soil very dry & heavily ferted. I used a mixture of chemical & organics during all stages but for veg I used a tea from seaweed extract, fish emulsion & alfalfa meal in Hydrogen peroxide coupled with Superthrive & a dash of Peter's 20 20 20.

The transition was sketchy for me as I tended to under do the N & Ph, hence encountering issues. With a full flush & repot complete with super triple phosphate & blood meal, she turned around within a couple of days. Leaves began to regain color & all looked well for her. The hairs sprung up nicely and in the last week to week & a half, she really packed on the bud weight. As the lights go off, you may need to double up on your carbon scrubbers if smell is an issue. She tends to exhale big and really stink up the room with lemony sour goodness. I pulled her @ 74 days to maintain a bit of the head high while still getting the couchlock I need for the pain.

Overall I would suggest this plant to anyone, especially a novice grower. I have tried many strains and, user error aside, this was a very easy, low maintenance plant to grow. It yielded well (127g wet, 95g dry) grew quickly & kept me really really stoned for quite some time.

Vegged under fluoros & flowered under a 400 watt HPS. FLower chamber is kept cool (65 - 70 F) & veg right at 80.

I was never real specific on the soil I used but since there is a walmart nearby it usually wound up as Sams Soil Mix. I added perlite, a bit of vermiculite & seaweed meal with bone meal for veg & blood meal for flower. While it is highly disputed and generally disregarded by most, I also used Superthrive during the entire growth process.

The NYCD that we have used for the last two years is one GORGEOUS lady!!!!

The odor is pretty out of control, so BE PREPARED. The smell is like that of lemoney and fuely... As it should be! This particular pheno also has some skunkiness to the odor as well.

Another benefit of this particular
