Let the games begin.
I’ve been experimenting with doing side by side grows in the Grobo and under a full spectrum LED in soil recently. The reason is simple the Grobo can’t keep up to my consumption so this was the most cost effective solution for me.
I grew an OG Kush in the Grobo and won the first annual prized cup here at Grobo! The cup even comes with a little stash but my bud didn’t fit. (pics below) I have an OG Kush going in soil now.
On to the games. I’ve started my current grow of this strain with a LED light in soil from seed and another one week later in the Grobo.
In two days the Grobo girl has really had a growth spurt. The soil girl is one week ahead so naturally a bit bigger. I’m eager to see how the challenge pans out.
I’m doing this experiment as the research on this strain says it likes to be fed a lot. This is something I have control over via soil but plug and play Grobo doesn’t know my plant is a heavier eater. I will nuke her slowly with nutes in the soil grow.
Source of research for growing this strain: Leafy
Strain Overview: A longtime favorite from British Columbia, God Bud was bred by Jordan of the Islands, who mixed a Canadian strain known as “God” with Purple Skunk and Hawaiian. God Bud is a powerful indica strain that offers potent medicinal properties and a sweet aroma of berry, lavender, and pine.
Grow Techniques: This strain can be grown indoors or outdoors in a hydroponic or soil setup. The plants and buds grow dense, so prune and train them to maintain airflow while using trellising to keep ample space between buds. God Bud’s flowers develop loads of sticky resin, making it a great plant for creating hash.
Flowering Time: 7 weeks
Grow Difficulty: Moderate
Climate: God Bud can handle colder climates, but be careful of high humidity levels as the buds develop. A drop in temperature can cause the buds to take on purple hues, but this strain prefers temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Indoor/Outdoor: God Bud can be grown either indoors or outdoors with success.
Feeding: This indica strain requires heavier feeding. Keep the plant happy by top dressing with organic nutrients.
