As promised, another report from the winter grow.

The result is a strain which represents the state-of-the-art of Sativa with an exotic predominance of Thai.
The small and numerous bracteas are covered with a big amount of trichomes full of THC, carrying even 92 trichomes in some bracteas by mm2.
Environmental conditions should be rather dry during bloom and with nutrients level quite low, specially nitrogen.
Flowering period is from 8 to 12 weeks depending of growing conditions.
Medium/high yield outdoors and some less in indoors. Suitable with grows using SOG and SCROG techniques.
Outdoor: Early November
Flower Time: 8 - 12 weeks
Environment: Indoor or Outdoor
I germed 5 Destroyer seeds (standard), and ended up w/ all 5 being female. I grew them in ProMix, and fed them w/ liquid organic nutes...generally at half suggested strength.
They were vegged under a 400w halide for 45 days @ 18/6, and flowered @ 12/12 under a 400w HPS w/ five 42w spiral flourescent table lamps for side light. The 5 plants ranged from 72-91 days in flowering time, and ended up being between 3.5 and 5 feet tall at harvest in 3 gal pots.
I ended up w/ 210g (about 7.37oz) of dried, manicured, cured bud total from all 5 plants. I consider this to be a good yield for my setup, but I'm sure that a much better yield could be had w/ larger pots and more room and light...these 5 were grown in a 4x4' closet space w/ 7 other ladies.
About average smell during flower.
As you will see in the photos below, Destroyer can be pretty branchy...typical sativa. Topping the plant really makes her sprawl!
The smoke is smooth, and buzz is "let's do it!"...you can actually get stuff accomplished w/ this stuff! Powerful high.
I had 2 phenos. Pheno #1 (2 plants) have a pleasant lemon-lime taste after cure, and pheno #2 (3 plants) have the taste of fresh dill. I was somewhat disappointed that none of my plants had that wonderful "old school thai" flavor, but I still have 7 more seeds.
Overall, I would rate Destroyer 9 out of 10.
