*** GROW REPORT ***
In the vegetative phase, the plants form wide leaves and a massive stem. They are strong and hardy plants. When pruning, they respond with massive formation of side branches. Some phenotypes naturally branch more than others. The stems are fibrous and flexible, the leaves have initially wider leaflets. The leaflets become gradually
narrower throughout the growth. The root system is massive too.
Most plants naturally form a Christmas tree structure (in pots) with a large apical bud. Some will branch more in the lower parts and the side and lower branches will compete with the upper branches.
Buds are compact and very resinous. Both buds and many leaves are heavily covered with trichomes. Ideal for extraction. The colours when flowering range from red to dark purple in various shades. One phenotype is light green to yellow. Flowering is complete in about 11 weeks. The beginning of flowering is dominated by a faintly sour citrus scent with floral undertones. The later stages of flowering are accompanied by a sweet and spicy herbal aroma with hints of kush and gum.
The resistance to borytris and drought is quite high. Forgiving plants. In the last two weeks or so expect an increase in trichomes size.
