Ice (Fem Indica) - Royal Queen Seeds

ICE

What happens when you cross a pure Afghan with Northern Lights and Skunk? You get Indica Crystal Extreme—aka ICE—a plant that is fully covered in resin glands. The buds produced by this magnificent hybrid were so frosty, so sparkling, there seemed no more fitting a name than simply ICE.

So for the last seed from the RQS Fem Mixer pack is ICE
I decided to grab 2 sets of grow lights like (@Chad_Johnson i believe) showed it lets you set an 8hr on cycle which I have on in the middle of the 12hrs on
So its 2hrs just grobo on then 8 with both grobo and supplemental lights …then 2 more hrs of just grobo lights.
I decided to just use a roll of magnetic tape so they don’t sit in the corners but can be moved around abit to be centered between the two nearest branches…that way depending on how the plant is developing I can always adjust abit.

So far its suffered from some scorching on fan leafs that would push against them but otherwise it looks like the bud sites and leafs below the top canopy are healthier and developing better then before… I find the big fat leafs from indicas really are challenging in the grobo… I ended up topping twice and had to extend late veg about 4weeks longer due to slow development early.
Height could have been a little higher but its pretty good overall…

Here is latest video from drain and fill this am still 30 days to go in flowering but its ambering up like its much closer

Flower (Day 59 / 70)

after topping water up took these this am… about 3 inches down from top bud(top buds are very ripe probably 30% amber)
I think i gotta get a black piece of paper to see better LOL but this is indica and for the most part i’m planning on using this grow for late night help me sleep and for those wake up at 2am and can’t get back to sleep scenerios so I’m good with it being more seditary

Im thinking of chopping in the next two days this seems about ready
@Todd.grobo what ya think? wait another week or get to it :)(anyone elses thoughts would be great too hehe)

Go ahead and put her in flush and extend flush as needed. Once in the flush stage, don’t forget to do a drain and fill to remove your nutrients so she starts eating those in the leaves. In flush stage she will only receive water and ph corrections.
Looking like some mighty fine buds @Bloodydrake

so cut and wet trimmed everything ,cleaned the grobo(I leave the probes in a ziplock of the water thats being drained before cleaning). overall the bud sites all down the length look significantly denser and more robust then previous grows, only the lowest ones look airy.
will be curious if dry weight gets over 2.5oz this time… heres pic of cut then trimmed and hanging to dry before the extreme shrinkage kicks in :wink:

Hey Bloody,

Have you used any other nutes/supplements other than grobo’s nutrients?
