A few extra pics.
AK FEMALES SEEDS TEST GROW
Week 10.5
DAYS: 73 Days


Female Seeds AK could benefit by a 5 gallon nursery container/grow bag. We used 3 gallon as we do for all "test" batches either ours or as in this example. When we grow for seed production we use 5 gallon buckets.

A 3 gallon bucket tells us whether or not it will respond as an autoflower should - growth with upward movement. lateral branches.. Some smaller autoflowering genetics thrive in 3 gallon. Larger (such as this one- AK) a larger container will help plant flourish.

Seems many customers want large autos. While this is not a "super auto", I think it can take nutrients and thrive. Notice there's still a dark green sugar.branch leaves throughout both plants. Weekly Neptune Harvest feeding (1/2 strength) and alternate 1 week feeding Organic Plant Magic (1/4 strength), both AK phenos will NOW only receive rain/snow water until finished.

AK FEMALES SEEDS TEST GROW
DAYS: 79 days Days


Pheno #1 is swelling up, starting to slow down, orange/brown covering buds.

Watered her for last time this morning (well saturated) and will let soil dry out. Last waterings only water.

Approximation of chopping AK Pheno#1 is about 7-10 days. Trichs are clear and milky. Like to chop at ~20%+ amber for clear headed high and pain relief.

Pheno #2...still producing bud sites about 2.5 weeks behind Pheno #1. Will update w/ pic when Pheno b#1 is cut.

BIG plants, both of them grown in 3 and 4.5 gallon nursery buckets! Highly recommend Female Seeds AK just from the looks and growth pattern. Imagine smoke report will be the test of all, yet confident of cerebral effect, smokey, earthy. Time will tell.

Thumbs up

Yes, I know what you mean, pp eyes.

FEMALE SEEDS AK (as far as growing them) are superior to those you mentioned. Looked w/ loupe this morning. Still clear and maybe 20% milky....Pheno #1 is almost finished. Yellow fan leaves (I plucked them). Pheno #2 still 10-12 days behind in growth/bud pattern even though planted (germinated) same time. However, it's a larger plant. Both are prolific in bud formation. Not huge buds, yet many, many!!

As I mentioned earlier, I'm quite impressed with Female Seeds AK.

I'll post pics on Saturday and 'guesstimating' the chop on Pheno #1 next Wednesday.

All great aridbud, very looking forward chopping time and can't wait to hear about weights too!
About the yellowing of Pheno #1. Is it something strictly related to this pheno or did you see it happening on the other one too? Just asking as I was wondering if it's something specific of the strain or not

I find it really interesting this pheno #2, and still providing bud sites too. Some buds might need to be harvested in different moments then?
And thanks for the tip on the pots, you are right as this strain, and the pheno 2, would definitely benefit of a bigger pot and develop a more solid structure (starting with roots and so on...).

Thanks for the kind words, it really makes us happy to hear such great feedbacks, especially from you guys
Love your positive attitude my friend, I am sure you will enjoy the harvest and smoke as much as the grow!

Until next update!

Cheers,
Mr B.

Thanks, mr. brunch!

FEMALE SEEDS AK AUTO STRAIN
PHENO #1
Germinated:11/14/18
Chopped: 2/14/19
90 days


Here's a few last pics. Will submit smoke report once dried. Trimmed pics lacking scant lower branches. Estimate 28-32+ grams.

Nice bud formation. Not as greasy/oily as some strains. Still, a pea sized finger hash after clipping with scissors. Hashy, nice stone.

Plant would have been larger had I used 5 gallon contain instead of 3 gallon. Still;, nice plant to watch and grow!

PHENO #2 still growing, bud swelling and see another ~7-10 days to finish.

Thank you, Female Seeds to allow me to grow under LED indoors.

Upcoming NL TESTERS will be started in April outdoors.

FEMALE SEEDS AK AUTO STRAIN
PHENO #2
Germinated:11/14/18
Chopped: 2/16/19
92 days


Here's the chop and manicure of Pheno #2. Primarily clear trichomes with 35% milky.

I like an energetic buzz with clear/milky presence.

The total yield about 30% more than Pheno #1, and larger buds. Figuring ~1.50- 1.34 oz, maybe more.

I'm impressed with the ease of grow with no adulteration (ex: SCROG/LST), the neutral aroma.

This one would do well in 5 gallon and SCROG or LST. Recommend it!

Last entry will be smoke report on both. Anticipate a wonderfully earthy, woodsy smoke, powerful stone!

Will start an outdoor thread in a few months, both AK and NL.

Again, Mr. B and FEMALE SEEDS, it was a successful growing experience! High five!

Thumbs up FEMALE SEED AK LED GROW: SMOKE REPORT

Hello one and all.

We finished the 2 AK phenos, grown indoors under 450 and 600w (alternating due to space).

FEMALE SEEDS AK (grown under LED, organic soil)

SMOKE REPORT:


TASTE: earthy, woodsy (which I like). Hint of citrus. Smooth inhale, not harsh at all.

VISUAL: Forest green with lots of reddish brown pistils. Great bag appeal.

EFFECT:
Immediate head high, euphoric. Good for creative projects, social. 2 tokes in bubbler. Very satisfying smoke and long lasting.

BENEFITS:
Easy to grow, low to moderate nutrients in flower, not a strong odor in bud stage, or veg.

Helps with chronic pain, depression. Pre-storm moving in and I can feel effects of storm (arthritis). Dealing with chronic (managed) depression, AK is spirit lifting and energetic. Perhaps waiting until 30% is amber trichs, likely a more melt in the couch sensation. For me, I like good taste, smooth inhale/exhale, pain relief and upbeat sensation.

Recommend 5 gallon container, LST or SCROG as it will grow 38+ inches (Pheno 2). Feed every 2-3 waterings 1/2 strength nutes. We use 1/3 going with the mantra: quality start, less is more for supplementation. This strain (both phenos) stayed green, lush with no nutrient deficient signals as some plants portray.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:
Beautiful strain, easy plant to grow! Although AK took longer than some of our autos @78-85 days, the wait was its own reward finishing at 90 and 92.5 days seedling to harvest! Bravo!


Rating scale 1 the worst, 10 the best- this definitely is in the 8-9 range.

Highly recommend the AK strain indoors.

Look forward to growing and sending reports to IC on NL in a few months!

Well done, FEMALE SEEDS and Mr. B! Very solid auto!! Thanks for opportunity to grow them!
