So I chopped my La Diva last Sunday which was day 58 from seed for her. I have put her into a jar now. My guess is that I got close to an ounce. I don't have any scales here anymore, so I can't say with certainty how much I yielder off of her. She finished up about 20" tall. She didn't grow much taller once she started to flower. She has a nice berry smell that isn't very overpowering. I just smoked some, and I got a nice buzz off of a half a joint. It isn't top shelf smoke by any means in my opinion. To me this is some good mid-grade weed that I would sell for $40 an 1/8, but this is for personal smoke. I'm just trying to give you all an idea of the quality. As far as how this smoke tests, I want to wait until it's been cured before I comment on that. I seriously doubt that I will be messing with auto's of any kind ever again. I think that auto's just aren't going to be as potent as your regular photoperiod strains. You can get some smoke quick by growing them though. Plus, if you have space requirements then an auto might be the best strain for you to grow. I am growing for pure quality smoke, so they just won't duy in my garden.
I am growing 3 regular photoperiod strains as well, and they are the Serious Ak-47, Barney's Blue Cheese, and Reserva Privada's OG#18. I just flipped them from 20/4 to 12/12 two days ago. I can't say how much I am looking forward to seeing what these strains are about. I bought a shit load of beans and these were some of my favorites of what I had bought.
The Ak-47 is the biggest of the 3 strains that I have going. It is about 21" tall now and is just as bushy. It has small sativa looking leaves that are of a dark green/blue color. This plat took extremely well to being topped. It has grown pretty much without incident. I did notice some droopy leaves 2 days ago, but I gave her some water and a few minutes later the leaves were standing straight up again. I'm assuming that this strain is a big eater. I have her in a 5 gallon pot, so she has plenty of room for her roots to grow.
The OG#18 is the next biggest plant at about 15" tall. She is quite bushy as well. She has light green colored leaves and a wonderfully sour smell already in veg. I haven't had a single problem with her so far. She has been the model plant so far. This is the strain that I am looking forward to the most.
Last but not least is the Blue Cheese. She is a shorter plant at about 13" tall. The leaves are dark green and indica looking. According to Barney's she is an indica dominant strain that will stay short. So far it looks like they were right. It doesn't have much of a smell to it yet. I figured that it would, but I was wrong.
I cannot wait to see what these strains look like in about 30 days. I will basically know what they are going to turn out like by that point in time. I just hope that these strains turn out to be some top shelf smoke because that is what I am shooting for.
