Strawberry Pie grow review
My best strain I’ve grown so far, whilst my growing experience is limited to 2 previous harvests, I’m certain even the most experienced will agree that she was a delight to grow.
She doesn’t grow to tall but what she doesn’t have in height is quite the opposite in bud production. She is also a speedy grower, she grows just as fast and big of the rest of them(wedding cheesecake and lemon pie auto) but in flower she slows down in her stretch. I grew her with 2 other fastbuds strains and certain she will have produced the most bud in relation to its size.
I weighed her biggest cola day after chop which came in at 41g which really impressed me. Another 3 big similar sized colas and few smaller branches should see my dried yield reach 70g and above in 90 days on the dot with 9 weeks flower.
She can handle her nutrients quite well, I went above fastbuds recommendation and attempt full strength dosages (from week 4 of veg) of organic nutrients and she handle it like a champion, inciting me to push her even harder. At which I chickened out and was worried to over do it. I am keen to see how far she can be pushed in future as I’ll definitely be growing this strain again.
Her resistance to mold and pests was also impressive as there were signs early in flower of PM in the tent but after a good defoliation it never popped up again.
Moving on to her bud structure, she get really resinous and dense flower that fattens and fattens. In her last week, her trichomes said she was ready but yet she kept on growing, if it wasn’t for me and my smoke preferences, she’d still be fattening after 9 weeks of flower. Just touching the buds leaves you with the stickiest fingers that you have to give it a good scrub with olive oil to get off your fingers which speaks for her resin production. She’s has glittery trichomes that covers the most beautiful complements of colours, during early flower her buds were all green as she developed they started fading pinkish red like a nice rose. After her 48 hour dark period before chop some of those red tones turned purple which left me staring at a combination of green, pink, red, purple bud with orange pistils and glittering trichomes to top it off.
She holds a sweet aroma with a subtle hint of skunk that even my carbon filter had difficulty hiding. No need for aftershave when all you need is 5min in your tent to get smelling good. This is no joke, my friend would come around and have this ongoing joke with me that I have my canna-cologne on upon getting that wif when greeting.
With the right training early on (LST) she can give you great yields as all her colas grow to be fat densed buds. Ive received a weight of 144 grams after 6 days of drying which 72g per plant.
I’m extremely eager to taste her but I said to myself to be patient and give her at lea at least 2-3 week cure to fully appreciate it. Smoked the resin from my pruning blades and gave me a good knock.
