Ladies looking lovely..what are you thoughts on the soil?

Would you say the sales pitch is accurate with them so far?
Hard to say exactly. I'd say their sales pitch is water only. With 3 gallon pots I don't think it's possible. I ended up too dressing a few weeks back because they plants really look like they needed it. If you were growing in 5-7 gallon pots Id say it's definitely possible. 3 gallons might be be possible but this was my first time with living soil.

The "best practices" link on SoHum's site has a chart on how big of a pot to use for the life of the plant. Im running 5 gallon pots, hoping its enough still for autoflowers, using the Autoflower "best practices" Still I used a light mix Happy Frog/ ME Coco pearl in more than 50% of the pot. I have heard even Happy Frog could be too hot to start the plants. I will say yours looks amazing. I hope to get my plants to look like that.

I've noticed a lit longer stalks of the trichomes on several Roc crosses.
Yup I've noticed this as well. I've got cannacheese from mephisto right next to it. Tons of frost but some of the trichs are Roc'S strains are twice as tall.

I ended up hanging the first Slurri pictured above first(Day 82) and let the other ones go a little longer (Day 89 and 91). I typically stagger my harvests a week or so in-between to give my hands a break an to test differences in letting different strains go longer(more amber) and how some handle being harvested earlier (less amber).

I'm honestly surprised they went this long. I'm very very happy with the yields though. For such small plants they pack heavy colas.

Again these plants were small was mostly my fault. I believe it was because I planted them into pure sohum and they didn't like the excess nitrogen.

The first Slurri came to a total of 70.68 grams! Not bad for a plant that was only 17 inches tall. I suspect out of the other 2 plants one will weigh more and one will weigh less. Knowing what I know now about my soil I'm confident if I ran this strain again I could easily pull 3-4 per plant.

Here are a few bud shots, I'll get more after some curing takes place!
