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 day

For Veg. I used Flouros, early flowering because Big Bud increases overall size about 300% after switching to 12/12.
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

Oldest commercial strain and I can tell you that I know why it got it's award at the Cup back in '89. Cheap seeds, hardy easy to grow plants, lots of sticky dank buds that you can sell by the quarter-pounder!!!

The plant grew exceedingly well thru most of it's growth and produced nice tight nuggets average roughly the size of golfballs and several colas above ten inches in length (Some LST used in early veg) The buds were very sticky and trichome developement wasy dense with long thin resin glands giving the flowers the appearence of being frosted with sugar. Yield I felt was not as impressive as the hype but it was still a good yielder just not quite what I expected. I was most disappointed in the flavor. Breaking it up or smelling the smoke in the room it has a good pungent classic marijuana odor but when you smoke it there seems to be no flavor and that's after a one month cure. The high is okay but nothing to get excited about some who have sampled it report a sort of "Dark High". I find the high also failed to live up to the hype. Bottomline is it produce a bag of smoke that you feel good about and maybe even get excited about it while cleaning some but when you smoke it you are disappointed in the taste but soon don't care because you are pleasently buzzed. An okay source of bulk average weed.

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
