The motivation for my genetic selection derives primarily from industry trends. The trend of significance is the market presence and potent medicinal properties of OG genetics.
Hrpuffnkush's (Golden Coast Genetics) quote details a few of the qualities that are of specific interest within my, local, medicinal market, thus reinforcing my manufacture of these genetics.

If you want the top price tier for your product and a quick turn around OG KUSH grown well is a guarantee

Vegetative Development Documentation, Day 13 Post Sowing

Currently I am employing a 24 hour photoperiod in an effort to capitalize upon the plants perpetual photosynthetic capacity. As evidenced in my prior cycles, the quantity of growth manufactured, relative to my expenses, is profitable, but questions do arise in regards to the quality of growth relative to a conventional (natural) light cycle. This is a profitable avenue of pursuit in my preparation for future productions.
The flooding of the individual sites is programmed to cycle every 03:45:00, which effectively maintains a consistently saturated root interface, while also ensuring sufficient oxygen levels and consistent nutrient solution parameters within the reservoir.
The water table height is stationed at 7.5", for I have learned from previous cycles that excessive moisture distorts healthy leaf expressions and diminishes the quality of growth (compunded by excessive nitrate concentrations)
I now utilize 3.5 gallon media containers, having switched from the 6 gallon containers used during prior productions. The switch was motivated by my understanding of improved control, specifically being an improved management of individual site flooding and the coverage of medium from external influences (light, organic debris, obstruction of excessive air flow, and promotion of an air root interface.

Temperature and Humidity Data

Consistency of climate conditions provides valuable opportunity for future production, the control afforded differentiates the valuable experessions that manifest. Controlling these parameters empowers your employees (plants) to achieve distinguishing, and unique genetic expressions that ultimately leverage your product.

The frequently applied Foliar Ingredients presently consist of: Fulvic Acid, Kelp Meal, Kelp Extract, Aloe Powder, CalBoro, Potassium Silicate, Neem Oil. Ideally I am utilizing each of these inputs in response to a representative tissue analysis, although I have a propensity to experiment...

Representative Tissue Analysis Collected Day 12 Post Sowing (Nitrate and Phosphate concentrations)

The representative tissue analysis is a sampling of six entire seedlings, including the root tissue.
As a consequence of this analysis, I will be allotting more energy toward managing the transition of these critically impressionable seedlings. In my readings I have come to understand the profound signifcance of positively positioning the young development for future sucess. (Facilitating a sound structure via environmental management.)

Working Solution Analysis Collected Day 14 Post Sowing

This analysis has motivated the withdrawal of exhausted solution and the following input of a balanced solution. In my future production I will allot additional energy toward the management of Nitrate and Phosphate quantities that are in direct interface with the seedlings developing root structure, thus constructing a sound foundation, effectively facilitating expressive opportunities that may have been inhibited.

Vegetative Development Documentation, Day 20 Post Sowing

The individuals purposed for production are exhibiting excessive nitrate concentrations while also showing distorted leaf expressions, these are potentially interrelated. The plants adjacent to these individuals that have been placed amongst the wall of the shared container exhibit healthy expressions. It is apparent that these plants recieve less light and water given their position in relation to the light sources and the containers wick.
Due to these observations I have lowered the water table, will be frequently applying sugars via foliar routes to assist in efficient nitrate utilization, and managing gravity reservoir fertilizer input.
These additional plants were initially purposed for various lab analysis, but I am having difficulty slaughtering them. The obvious expressions of health these subjects show has derailed my once practically motivated objective. I have considered utilizing these subjects in lieu of the eight that I had confidently selected for the production position via practical observation, but I fear now that the cost of root structure shock (I surmise) is greater than the perceived benefit.

Temperature and Humidity Data

One of my main motivations for the application of a 24/7 light cycle is the opportunity of entirely consistent conditions. The data recieved from the strategically placed monitors effectively communicates the reality of my facilities parameters. Although, the data is an effective tool in motivating valuable change.

Representative Tissue Analysis Collected Day 19 Post Sowing

Ineffective nutrient solution management, compounded by production parameters, has created inhibiting imbalances within the plants, thus constricting healthy expressions. I am currently exchanging the diluted working solution with a balanced solution, although energy must be allotted to the management of excessively accumulating elements (nitrates and phosphates).

Working Solution Analysis Collected Day 19

With my present understanding it is too chaotic a task to assign this data with my observations. It is my understanding that this investment will be of value in the future, as I amass experience and my knowledge compounds.

Representative Tissue Analysis Collected Day 26 Post Sowing

I have been applying fertilizer via foliar applications on a daily schedule. The general inputs utilized at variable times and quantities include: CalBoro, Photomag, Kelp Meal, Kelp Grow, Aloe Powder, Hormone and Vitamin recipe, CalCarb, Potassium Silicate, Fulvic Acid, Molasses, and various sugars.

Working Solution Analysis Collected Day 26 Post Sowing

I have been inputting ~1.0 ec solution into the gravity reservoir. Frequently I am withdrawing 5 gallons of working solution and inputting a balanced fertilizer, often ~1.2 ec. I am also inputting 6ml 35% H202 every other day into the working solution.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you... I had so many samples to smoke it took me the better part of a week to try everything once. Everything pretty much had the same piney (and maybe some lemon?) smell/flavor, except for the 2 skunks and 2 other samples. The skunks were fruity and tasted nice, but less potent and less dense than the other samples. I look at everything from a commercial aspect as well as personal sensory... and most people want those tight dense nugs.

Like this one. This was my favorite of all the samples. It has a more chem/og smell, good potency, good bag appeal. I just smoked half a joint and I'm baked.


This one was my second favorite. I would say this one was more OG/fuel leaning... but it also has a bit of that piney smell. Maybe that just came from being in the same jar as other samples? Also got me real high.


There was this one pheno of the piney smelling buds that was the strongest of them all. I could only smoke like 1/3 of that joint at once. It's all strong high and clean burning bud. Your biggest improvement would just be to grow 1 plant that tastes great, and with strong potency. I know you said the dispo likes that you can provide a variety, but who gives a shit? They'll still buy lbs of w/e you're growing that's flying off the shelves. Save a few spots to grow your seeds separate from your production run from clones. Oh yeah back to the buds... The flavors that you gave me are good, strong, but not great. Just my opinion. Sour Dubb for example is something you smell and you know instantly you want that one. Motorbreath is another good example. They're unique and hard to come across running seeds. That's why those plants have been kept around as clones and circulated all over.

With regard to organic vs. synthetic... I think you're doing a great job with synthetics and I wouldn't change a thing from a commercial aspect. Your buds are big and full, smell good, good potency, burn clean. Don't mess up a good thing! lol If you want to mess around with organics for your personal stash, go on ahead! I think the flavors will only improve, become a bit smoother. It takes time to build a living organic soil, and it would set you back for 1 or 2 crops imo... Most people can't tell the difference between good synthetic and good organic grown buds. Once you get the soil going though it can keep up with hydro systems but with healthier growth.

Representative Tissue Analysis Collected at Day 5 Post Reproductive Initiation

Representative sample attained ~3 nodes from growing tip of majority of individuals after a few hours of day.
It appears the convenient placement of my concentrated boron solution has proven a bit too excessive...

Reproductive Cycle Day 21 Resin Development / Stem Property Documentation

I have identified particles of carbon present on the tissue which is due to the continuous use of carbon filtration. This is required to manage odors.
I have identified areas of oxidation on the pistils, which I surmise is because of the concentrated foliar applications of many minerals.
This intimate visualization of plant material has assisted in facilitating my understanding of valuable concepts of plant expression.

Flower Development Documentation, Day 26 Post Reproductive Initiation

Light output: 2,100 watts (Gavita Fixtures @ 600w)
Water Temperature: 73°F ± 1°F
Foliar Ingredients: Fulvic Acid, Aloe Powder, Kelp (Kelpak/Acadian), Molasses, Albion Calcium, Albion Potassium, Hormone Mixture, Micro 5000

Temperature and Humidity Data

This data reflects a structure which facilitates comfortable growth, although to achieve superior genetic expressions I must enact stricter controls. The ideal structure of this data, I observe, would resemble smooth, rolling mounds. This would empower the plants to express potential uninhibited.
I would like to capitalize upon these visual submissions of data to reinforce the powerful influence of environmental parameters upon individual expression.

Canopy Temperature Data

The canopy temperature measure most accurately reflects the immediate conditions that strongly influence individual flower expressions (structure and terpene concentrations). So priority is given to controlling this specific variable, which ultimately governs a patients sensory experience. The immediate action I can employ is the control of Gavita fixture ouput.

Representative Tissue Analysis Collected at Reproductive Cycle Day 19 - Bud Set/Stretch

I have administered 22g Molasses via Foliar application, in conjunction with Aloe powder and Fulvic acid.
These results have motivated the purchase of another source of light energy to capitalize upon excess nitrate and magnesium reserves.
I have nearly suspended all input of CalNit. I am now awaiting an Albion Calcium foliar supplement to satisfy a potential deficiency identified via tissue analysis.
As apparent, I have located the inevitable mite presence once again; the powers are serving consequence for ineffective nitrate management and unwillingness to adhere to pesticide application procedure. My stubbornness is inevitably reflecting within my work.

Working Solution Analysis Collected at Reproductive Cycle Day 19

In my attempt to satisfy the progressively demanding Potassium requirements via potassium silicate input, the pH has risen as consequence. What I have observed is an individual whom is experiencing stress (Clawing Leaflets) at a greater significance than the plants adjacent to it within the same reservoir, which may or may not be a consequence of this variable.

Reproductive Cycle Day 28 Flower Resin Development Documentation

The emerging oil glands captured within the second image specifically intrigue me. What I am feeling is a responsibility to facilitate the development of these valuable assets.
Ideally I would locate an isolated spot on the flower and document the evolution of gland development, but the equipment I purchased requires strict conditions to focus, thus necessitating the removal of flowers from physical site. In an effort to maintain generally representative display weekly sampling is harvested from the same plant, and of flower development nearly adjacent within the canopy position.
