I germinated 30 seeds from which 25 sprouted after 2 days. Plants were vegged for 4 weeks reaching around 12 inches in height, feeded with Canna Terra Vega 2 times a week.

12 days after switching to 12/12, 15 plants turned out to be female, 10 were male. I continued to feed Terra Vega this 12 days then switched to Terra Flores and B'cuzz bud booster 2 times a week.

Despite my belief the crop turned out to be mostly uniform with only two ladies showing a more Sativa dominated pheno. Most plants tripled in height the first weeks after 12/12.

I was really surprised at how fast the plants filled out. The buddage at 4 weeks 12/12 was already outstanding. Plants finished in 63 days without any problems.

Total trimmed and dry harvest was nearly 400g and leaved me pleased.

I find this variety good value, easy to grow, high yielding with good potency. Only the taste is a bit harsh.....

For Bloom I used 600W HPS. Standard nutes + handwatering. no extra Co2 and only 1 gallon soil pots (TEKKU ~15x15x25). Good ventilation is recommended.

The flowering time was diffe

This was my first grow. I grew 5 plants of Nirvana Big Bud and 5 plants of Sensi Early Skunk together. Over all I found the growing process to be fun and fairly easy. I think the Big Buds are a very hardy and easy to grow strain which I'm sure made things a little easier for me. 3 out of 5 plants en ...continued
