TGA Qush Test Grow

Posted May 19, 2012
I started off a new strain and flowered it out in a new closet too. This grow was my first time using a 600W HPS lamp.

I was selected as a test grower in December 2011. I received the seeds early January 2012, free of course, thanks to Subcool and XBRPete. Although Subcool did release the seeds for sale after his own test grows proved to be worthy. The seeds were released on April 20, 2012 and quickly sold out.

I only had room in my grow to start two seeds and I got lucky with the two seeds that I germinated, both were female.

I also got lucky and it appears that I have two main phenotypes, a tall one and a short stocky one. Quish is a very hardy plant. The stem or stalk is very thick and sturdy. It has been a pleasure to grow thus far.

I like to use at minimum a 12 oz cup to start the seeds. To help reduce any stress, I put a baggie over the cup. By doing this it has helped me achieve a higher female ratio when growing from seed.

The growth has been a bit slow, that is my fault, I am still fumbling around trying to get a good veg room established. I still have not achieved that. Just one of those projects that keeps getting put on the back burner.

Here you can clearly see the difference between the two phenotypes.

Here they are in the flower room. Soon after this picture was taken I swapped the Querkle and BBJ on the right. Keep that in mind when viewing the additional pictures.

At this point each pheno has a strong aroma of lemon candy. I sure hope they keep it too. It has been a very long time since I have had some good lemon bud!
