I think i might start the harvest process and put her into dark this weekend. 72 hours of darkness, then wet trim and into brown paper bags to dry. I'll guess her dry weight will be 28g.

It's also time to put this foxtailing madness to rest as well. I'll guess she will weight in a 31g of dry bud. A little less dense than her sister but a bigger plant. The foxtailing has me a bit stumped and I hope it doesn't effect quality too much.

I set her into the small tent to finish up before chopping. Great little plant. Super dense buds and good leaf to bud ratio. I think the HLG really helped to keep this a compact grow. I'll report back with the dry weights in a couple weeks.

I little bigger than her sister but with the foxtailing, the buds aren't as dense as the HLG girl. Still a great plant and I look forward to comparing the buds.

I hung her to dry but ended up catching Covid and I didnt have the energy to trim so I put the whole thing in a paper bag to try and put it off. Trimmed today but a bit late and the buds were a bit dry. 46% on the hygrometer in the bag. Ugh! A total of 19g. Threw them into the Grove Bag to see if it can work a miracle. It's been pretty dry around here so there won't be much moisture to cure. I put a cup of water near them so hopefully that helps. The early taste was good. Sweet, smooth with a kick at the end. Mellow, chill effect.

A bit fluffier than her sister but a bigger plant and bit higher yield, 23g. Again, a bit low due to over drying.

Comparison between the two grows under different lights... the HLG girl ended up being a bit more dense but the Mars girl ended up being a bit bigger. I tried to maintain the same DLI and both tent vents are connected so im not sure why the Mars plant foxtailed as much as it did. I really like HLG light in the smaller tent and I plan to grow all future solo cups in there. This setup has given me some nice compact plants. The Mars light had produced some nice big plants with lots of flowers but I haven't gotten the dense buds I was expecting. I still plan to grow my 5-7 gal in the big tent and my current grow seams to be on track to give me some thicker buds.

Thank you for the opportunity to grow these beans. I have a handful left over and look forward to giving them another shot.
