The best part of cleaning your Grobo after your first grow?? Smoking on some of your first grow while doing it!! My first grow in my Grobo was Granddaddy Purple from ILGM. Started growing two more GDPs and a GSC Exteme in my tent a few weeks later. The tent was ready quicker than the Grobo due to damping off issues early and light issues (damn thing grew too tall). However, the Grobo harvest has been the best out of all three plants! My tent harvest is almost a month cured and I’ve been smoking on it every day! Great stuff! Love Granddaddy Purple and am eager to complete the curing on the Grobo harvest (couple more weeks).
ANYWAY - on to the next! I germinated a feminized Cherry Pie seed from ILGM using the “glass of water method”… just drop it in water and a couple days later she grows a tail! Didn’t germinate outside of the Grobo last time, decided to do it this time. I also have some extra Mylar that came with my two tents (purchased a seperate tent to dry in) and I think I’m going to try to add some extra light with the Mylar this time around. Made sure my cocopod was plenty high this time to decrease risk of damping off. I’m going to add a fan immediately this time and also am adding hydroguard immediately. Grobo is out of the basement and in an upstairs bedroom now which has a window unit. Hoping since it’s the beginning of July I can harvest by the end of October and avoid needing space heaters, also this one can hopefully be kept colder during flowering this time around. My last grow started flowering around April and was getting way too hot in the final weeks. Also with the smaller room I can control humidity better.
Harvested 301 grams and haven’t sold any of it (I promise). That much should last us through this grow at least! Still looking to purchase another Grobo, however! Wanting to get rid of my tent and tent equipment and go all-Grobo.
Growing weed in a tent is awesome, I loved it, but I just don’t have the extra time to care for another tent right now.
I’m really glad that I decided to do a tent alongside my Grobo for my first grow, it really helped me learn a lot. However, my Grobo crop turned out much better quality (don’t get me wrong, the tent GDP is VERY dank too and is what I’ve been smoking on mainly because it’s more cured.)… however, when I do a side by side visual comparison, smell comparison, and high comparison, the Grobo crop is the clear winner.
Growing in a tent really let me appreciate how good of a machine the Grobo is and how simple and effortless it is to grow quality cannabis in.
So here we go! Grobo grow #2… cherry pie!! Have not found a thread for Cherry Pie on all-growers and it was a decision between Wedding Cake and Cherry Pie. Don’t get me wrong, I really like wedding cake and always enjoy it… but Cherry Pie has always been one of my favorites! I feel it’s not as popular because it’s not as pretty as other strains, and it also has a very distinct, but different, smell and taste. Unlike any strain I’ve tried before. I have, however, tried Cherry Pie from several different breeders and each time I get it I feel like I’m going to be disappointed upon opening… until I smoke it and I get that awesome Durban Poison/Granddaddy Purple opposite ended high! It’s great! One of my top 3 favorite strains, only surpassed by Granddaddy Purple and Sour Diesel… a hard pair to beat.
So it’s day one! Wish me luck and thank you all for all your advice and support!! You’ve all made me feel welcome, and this forum has such a great atmosphere!
