Yeah. No. It was great bud, expcept it was fluffy as fuck. It was def. the strongest sativa I've smoked - literally made you hallucinate if you had enough hash oil dabs. Made bombtastic hash oil.
But in no way, shape, or form was it worth the 4 months. You could literally grow two amazing sets of plants in the time it takes to flower one tangerine dream. Not to mention the stretch.
And this is done by Barneys Farm, and many people confirm poor genetics, even to this day with new seeds. That's the reason I'm staying far away from barneys farm, unless it was a bomb ass clone.
The Pineapple Express though, damn. I'm pretty sure I highly recommend it, but you'll have to wait til I finish the grow. It really hasn't been anything special whatsoever up until this point. Veg was normal, grew pretty fast and was pretty hearty.. Not too heavy of an eater, or too much of a foliage producer. Flower started well enough, no hold ups... But now around day 30 flower, holy shit. The smell has progressed from almost moldy (impossible though - it confused me at first, checked lots of buds for PM, humidity is 30% and I had 3 fans running 24/7). But anyway, the smell then changed from damp basement smell, to wet wet grass, and then sort of turned sweet... Like sugar + lawn trimmings...
>> Then the other day I opened up the tent and BAM. Hella hella fucking pineapple DANK smell. The wet grass smell totally changed overnight when those trichs started coming out. It literally smells like hella pineapples, with that ever present chronic smell that all cannabis has that fills the room. Pineapple Express could be the fruitiest/tropical smelling strain I've ever smelled. At day 30. And I'm no rookie to good bud. The Pineapple Express I've bought before smelled like maui wowie, more hashy, afghan like, than tropical fruityness. But this G13:PE I'm growing is all fruity tropical smelling herbs. Straight tropics dank. The kind of stuff you want to smoke with a mai tai, or a Miami Vice (pina colada/margarita). I'd consider growing it next round, too - even. It smells so good now. But I'm torn between jillybean, white widow, or la confidental for my next run!
Sorry for the rant I'll take it to my thread been puffin on a volcano bag of some Tahoe OG and got carried away!
Anyway bro, for whatever reason your leaves are looking back into the healthy range. Whatever you changed your doing it right, be it raising the lights or upping the humidity a bit it looks like your plants have relaxed a lot more!
