    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

SeedBank :

Dinafem

Strain:

Deep Cheese

Did it autoflower?: (Y/N)

No, photo sensitive strain.

Soil/hydro:

Current Culture UC8XL rdwc system,

Nutes:


Cultured Systems Veg A&B, Grow A&B, Early, Mid and Late Flower, Cal/Mag, House & Garden Drip Clean. It was a mild feeder, never getting above 300 ppm even at peak growth.

Light (kind and schedule):

Two KIND XL1000s with four 108 watt 2 bulb T5HO side lights. Total 1,692 total watts.

From seed to harvest date:

Three weeks in clone machine, 3 weeks veg, 10 weeks flowering. They could have been picked at 9 weeks flowering but left them an extra week for more amber trichs.

Dry Yield:

8 plants, 47.25 ounces or 1,325 grams. Average of almost 6 oz. per plant, .78 grams per watt. Individual buds weighing in excess of 20 grams each.

High/Effect Duration:

The effect is a strong indica hit without any couch lock. Very mellow and introspective. It lasts a good 3-4 hours.

RATE SCALE: (*) = bad, to (*****) = great

Top of the line, probably the most potent strain I've grown to date. Coupled with the high yield and ease of growing, one I'll grow again.

BAG APPEAL:

Tight, hard buds covered in trichs. Examined under a microscope some areas were so resin covered only the tops of the trichs can be seen above the resin. With that skunky/cheesy smell and big buds, it's a winner.

THE GROWTH:

I had read on line and had someone here warn me that this strain really stretched once it was put on 12/12 lighting. I ended up vegging them to about 18" and it wasn't quite enough. I should have let them get to about 24" before flipping them. The stretch only ended up being about 50% and not the 100 to 150% I was lead to believe. The growth was quite nice. The plants were scrogged and filled the screen nicely. Initially all the big fan leaves were only 3 fingered, but some did eventually get 5 fingered ones. Not too bushy either. In fact, I removed very few fan leaves. All and all a pleasure to grow.

THE SMELL:

The smell is classic Skunk/Cheese, real old school.

THE SMOKE:

The smoke is mild and smooth after a 3 week cure. It should be even more so after a few more weeks.

Like many I assumed since it was a free seed that it might not be all that great. Man, was I wrong. This is a first class strain that has it all, easy to grow, high yield, great looking and smelling. Based on how good it is I'll be taking a harder look at what Dinafem has to offer. If this is any indication of their products, I'm sure they have other strains worth looking at. I couldn't be more pleased.

Beautiful smoke report mate and from the write up the yield was great and by the sound of things some fire end product :bong:

You would be surprised at how many times we hear this, growers get one of our seeds as a freebie and it turns out to be one if not the best in the garden :pass:

Welcome to Dinafem genetics mate glad your first encounter with us was positive :thumbsup: and again thank you for a great write up :bong:

All the best

Thanks Mark. I was so impressed with this strain I had to let everyone know. I'm just kicking myself that I didn't keep a mother. I'm sure you won't mind if I buy some more seeds. Keep up the good work.

@Muddy Thank-you for the very concise grow/smoke report!
I have a pack of these which I shall crack this spring, and thanks to your report I shall veg them longer as you stated.

Also have a pack of D-F's Cali Hash Plant that I am really looking forward to growing outdoors this season.

Thanks again my old friend.

Peace
