    Check out my smoke report! As for light cycle, I did standard 20/4 -> 12/12 in soil. Finished quickly, in like 7-8 weeks. I grew one feminized seed and it gave big, fat colas, and the smell after curing is a very nice spicy-hashy-menthol flavor. The taste is similar, but more floral. A nice even head-body high, but puts me to sleep real easy. I like it, and I'm trying another seed for my next run.
  3. Love the strain! Easy to grow.Use only 30-40% of recommended nutes.Flowers in 6-7weeks.Nice tops but low yield.Good sleeping aid.Easy to clone.Also try Moby Dick from Dinafem.Great yield,Great taste.

    I have also read that critical plus is a high yeilder. Also on dinafem's(creator) website they say it is an auto. So Im on 18/6, and bud sites are forming slowly.. Im almost a week into flowering though.

    Also, if Im right you shouldn't be able to take clones cause technicaly the clones are the same age as the plant. I don't know, I'm just going buy what I have read about autos

    I didn't know they made an auto version of that, but the original were non-auto fem seeds. I grew one out and it had a great yield and was a good (but not great) smoke. Which makes sense since it's a re-worked Big Bud.

    I've tried the Cali Hash Plant and Moby Dick from Dinafem as well. Both of those were decent too. I've got a Power Kush from them going now and I'm looking forward to how it turns out.

    If someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I would like to be let in the light. Cause all I found is on dinafem's website. Crumble, and Anita, the reason the yeild an the high, flavor, etc didn't turn out as you like might be due to using 12/12 and not 18/6. Like I said, what I know about autos comes from reading some these autoflower threads.

    no the critical plus i am interested in isn't the auto flowering breed. its all under way now anyways so here is hoping. started 18,6 and will continue untill 6 weeks and look at the situ again as dinafem claim will be ready in sixty days???? can anyone shed any light on that time scale??

    I have a critical plus running outdoor now. I got it from attitude seed bank. It was a throw in freebie. I had NO idea the seed was an auto flower. I just started reading this thread so I looked into the dinafem site. There is NO reference to Critical Plus being anything other than an auto-flower. I assumed (newbie) that when I planted it; it was a regular feminized seed. I never researched it. It is not listed at attitude and the site is in spanish. I am surprised at this. However it looks for sure to be an auto flower strain. I have it going outside and it is my fastest growing plant. Interesting development reading this thread. I'm acutally kind of pleased. We shall see. I know I will not panic if it goes into flower early. The initial research I did on the strain mentioned it finishing fast in mid September.

    Hi, I am doing a Dyna-Fem 'Critical Plus' Feminised plant ..(not auto.) :) I'll add a few pics... shes in Veg still @ 60 days... she's in a 35L DWC Container, and is powered by Canna Aqua nuites etc.. +5 ml of Super thrive.

    I have her under 1X 250W Phillips MH, 2X 125W 6500k CFL's and 2X 45W 6500K CFL's total Wattage : 590W (For Veg) .. I have another lighting rig for Flower :)

    Below I'll add a LINK to my Thread where I have more details etc on this grow :-



    http://www.rollitup.org/stealth-micro-cab-growing/589196-ztelthys-400w-uv-b-cfl.html



    I've been having probs displaying pics.. I never used to have this prob... let me know if you can see the pics and Ill add a few more :)

    She has been under 18/6 photo-period/lighting schedule and is going to be huge when she starts Flowering :) !!!

    I plan to Veg her for between 2.5 and 3 Months depending how fast she grows.. she'll be Lolly popped to screen level, bent to the right, then topped at every node, then the main stems will be Super-Cropped and fed back under the Scrog screen.. (to and across the left of the screen)

    She'll also be treated to a dose of UV-B which will be gradually increased until the last week of flower..

    She'll be flushed with just PH balanced water at 20oC..






    ****The only thing I'd like to ask is :- "WHAT IS THE ACTUAL RECOMMENDED FLOWERING TIME ???" ALL THE WEB SITES SEEM TO HAVE A CONFLICTING VIEWS...I need input from others that have previously grown this strain.... ???

    Please let me/us know asap, Cheers - ZTELTHY :leaf:

    DF Critical+ on 3 separate occasions - all freebies. found it to be easy and reliable - practically grows itself to an above avg yield. rate the smoke as decent. Would be good for commercial purposes.

    I've done critical+ both hydro and DWC (same nutes and plant, cloned) as well as soil. My hydro never had a yellow leaf the whole life cycle which was three week veg and 45 days flower. My DWC I burned, leaving nutes in for more than 2 weeks and it recovered and finshed nicely with a little damage to leaves at 45 days flower. My soil grow had the most leaf damage but my soil grow skills are admittedly sub par with how I should feed but it by far had the best buds after curing the smell was much more robust still only 45 days flower. The plants clones will last for a long period of time before showing signs of stress, but they root fast. Its sturdy and solid and takes a beating well. The smoke is not the strongest, but its sure is an easy plant start to finish. Easier than others I should say. I heard about a purple pheno but I have been cloning and using the same plant for months. I stressed a clone enough to where it began to purp a bit on the leaves and new growth but I expect that to disappear soon. Overall it stays short matures fast without any stretch for me and has fat rock hard buds. Really not just a description its true. I heard this was a dinafem version of critical mass by Mr. Nice seed. Mr. Nice seed is a very reputable breeder.

    We have actually been discussing this plant in the Dinafem thread. There was one person who said he got a strecthy pheno, but for me its slow veg and fast bud formation in flower. Once I flip to 12/12 it starts flowering by day 3.
