Guava no 1 is a fun plant to grow, though it's variety of phenotypes may not be to everyone's taste. I have grown out six females, that ranged from an Indica dom that had no stretch going into 12/12, to a LPS (god bless her) influenced pheno that may have tripled in height upon the onset of flowering. The Guava I have in the mother room leans toward the Indica and Mrs. U swears by it for period pains, I don't like it but taste is subjective.

As a plant, I found it forgiving, though it seemed to be a bellweather for flying problems that would spread, ie thrips. Not a gross feeder, though seemed to enjoy a dose of epsom salts around four weeks into flowering, and don't we all, vicar.

I have grown several Seeds from the Igloo, and would say that I knew Aussie Bush and Guava no 1 is no AB, (nor LPS come to that). But if you fancy a sort of un-dutched tropical treat that may be good for period pains, and don't have thrips in your space, this could be your holy grail.

Guava no 1 is an easy cultivar to grow, though seems to react badly to chemical over-fertilization (observation through a hydronaut friend) and is a thrip magnet (my own observation).

At present I flower in 16 square foot of space, using a 400w HPS and a 250 MH (air cooled), large passive intake, 5in Lti fan for extraction. My medium is a DIY organic mix. I supplement the soil by adding my comfrey/alfalfa/nettle tea as and when the plants need it, which is how I water. I still use fossilised seabird guano as a flowering 'mulch' but will be phasing that out when I run out as I don't want dead sea birds on my conscience. Ironic really.

I received my Guava #1 seeds via an old friend direct from the breeder. The results more than made up for the mistakes from my 1st grow.

Planted outdoors late spring, and harvested early winter (South African climate allows this) The Guava #1 shows her sex early and finishes under 60 days, outdoo
