    Strain: Big Buddha Blue Cheese (Fem single)

    Growth: Very branchy "christmas tree" structure with many leaves. The leaves have non-over-lapping leaflets.
    - 3 clones of the one original mom were vegged until ~14 inches high (concurrently the plants were mature as far as leaflets number and phyllotaxy.) They were put in flowering for 8-9 weeks. No more time was needed.

    Nutes: Veg = MG's Organic 8-0-0 (made from sugar beat molasses), more molasses, EWC, tap water, the liquid dechlorinator from the pet store.
    Flower = 2-4-1 fish emulsion for early flowering, Alaska MoarBloom 0-10-10 for the rest. Tap water with EWC, the dechlor, and the molasses also.

    It should be noted that a version of the "3 little birds" mix as a growing medium. It can be posted if enough people are curious enough (aka 1 person asks).

    Yield: ~21 grams per plant, and CFLS were used. It is suspect yield can go up if A. more CFLS are used. B. HID lights are used. C. the sunlight it used.

    Bag Appeal: Good lookin', but not the most insane thing. It's green, healthy lookin', and trichs can be seen. Pics will be posted later this week.

    Smell: It actually smells like blueberry muffins when it's flowering, and has undertones of blueberry when it's cured. Break open some nugs by hand and not only get sticky hands, but inhale the nice sweet fragrance that escapes. The overtones are more of a mild neo-skunk. None of the musky cheese odor has been detected yet. The blueberry undertones being sort of sweet and musky goes well with skunk-lite smell.

    Taste: Tastes like good, clean, smooth smoke. Not too overpowering/expansive, so it may trick you into smoking more when you really don't need anymore. It should be noted the stash being reviewed has been in jars for ~3 weeks after a solid dry got 6-7 days, and then a brown bagging for another 3-4 that's 30 days of drying/curing. I suspect aroma and taste may change a bit after another month jar'd.

    The High: Smoke a little, you won't be so angry or sad (not all pot doesn't help me not be angry.) Smoke a joint with friends and everyone will be happy and probably hungry. Smoke some more and you're not gettin' out of that chair/couch unless to bathroom/food/drink. Smoke more and you're out cold; sweet dreams.

    I would say it's a great "working-pot" because it's easy to get caught up in all the eating, sitting, laughing, and sleeping.

    Comments: It was pretty easy to grow. It roots and clones well. It is easy to over-water. Stretch was minimal, but I'm not sure if that was because they were transplanted right before flowering. I'm goin' to keep runnin' a clone factory on this strain. I like what it does, how it smells, and how it grows. It is leafy so it's sort of a pain in the butt to trim. The trimming comment is the only negative.

    What was the final height at the end of flower? I have space limitations of around 24" max plant hight.

    I promise everyone I will post pictures by Saturday. I'm doin' grad school app. stuff then gettin' stoned all today and tomorrow. Maybe I'll get adventurous and find my pos camera before then.

    As far as the final height, off the top of my head I want to say ~ 3' including the plastic black pot.

    As far as having 2 foot maximum, I think it could be done if you had the same/similar pheno. If you topped/trained it could definitely be done. The pheno that I've been propagating doesn't exactly reach for the sky at any part of it's life.

    This is the greatest strain around. IMHO.
    I specialize in BBBC.
    I have clients that call it CRACK.
    I dont care how much I smoke. Bowl 15 gets u as high as Bowl 1.
    Favorite smoke of all I have smoked.

    Im growing some BBBC now got 4 plants going my grow journal is in my thread. Quick question about them how much do they stretch the first month of flowering? Mine have not been growing that much and im hoping to get a good yeild off these but if there not going to strecth i dont know how much ima get. I have 4 plants i did a little tying down of the plants and there about 15 inches tall 2 weeks into flower im using a 400 watt hps. Any idea of the yeild i might get?

    I got 2 blue cheese 3 week in to bloom 1 in 90litre bucket and another in a 10litre bucket,hydro airstones,the 90 litre is huge.
    it does have a berry/blueberry smell but id say it has the musky cheesey undertone,its a sickly smell..

    Mine have not stretched at all nearly in bloom,but I did veg for a good 6 week,done loads of bending and have a good 6 main colas on each plant,I would say these are going to be big yielders especially the one in the 90litre bucket...

    Its easy to grow,handles stress very well,likes nutes and doesnt suffer much deficiences easy..
    I woud recommend bending main stem top and cola arms,they will get thick very quick..

    I do have a few touching leaves which show wet at lights on,but I guess thats due to tight nodes and branching,I tend to de leaf quite alot as it does get bushy.

    Bending/breaking cola arms heps make it grow out and up,takes it in its stride,I cant wait for this to be done.

    You need you carbon filter on,no doubt about that,I have mine next to ghs exodus fake ass sheese and the smell of the blue bows them away as well a the skunk1 I have, 2 blue cheese vs 3 ghs exodus fake and skunk#1 and the blue pongs them all out,its a stinker and notice able from seedlings.
