About a week left
The Crystal Candy is just about ready for harvest. I am sure I could harvest it now because the trichomes are pretty much all milky which means that the THC level is at its optimal point. I am just waiting a little bit longer for more amber trichomes to show up.
I have heard some pretty good things about this strain and I am super excited to give it a try. It is always really cool when you have a new strain. You can get a bit nervous as well because of not knowing what to expect. It would suck to grow a strain for months and then go through the work of trimming, drying and curing just for this strain to be something that I am not a fan of. I have done that a few times and the main one that comes to mind is the quad grape that I grew. I grew six plants of that one and had a lot of cannabis from it, but I only used it a handful of times and then ended up giving it away.
I am having some issues with germinating some new seeds. I have one AK47 seed that has sprouted and should be a full fledged seedling in the next couple days. The sour diesel I germinated did not sprout up yet. I am going to give it a few more days, but in the meantime I have two more sour diesel seeds germinating. I am using the paper towel method for those ones and hoping to allow them to grow some tails before I try and plant them. The past year I have been germinating just by putting them in a cup of water for a day or two and then putting them directyly into the soil once the seeds crack open. I think that the temperature may have something to do with it because it has been a bit cooler in the grow room because of the crystal candy being in flower. That one seems to prefer warmer temps for flower as opposed to some of the purple strains that prefer it to be a bit cooler so their colors can come through.
Well, I think in the next few days I will be chopping this plant down and beginning the drying process. I think I will be able to achieve a drying time of 12 days. I have had pretty good success with the long slow drying. It really helps to bring out a good flavor and gets rid of chemicals that are in the plant. Stay tuned for the harvest of this little beast of a plant. I will most likely be doing another "Guess the weight" post where you can win some Hive by guessing the closest.

I hear you about putting in all that work, and then felling MEH about it. Totally been there. And by a chance do you have a heat mat? That would probably help your seeds crack.
I do have a heat mat for seedlings. I just worry that it makes them too hot and will mess them up.
What I did was leave it on at night, but off during day. Or set the wet paper towel with seeds on a plate, then get a matching plate to enclose it. This will help with it not getting to hot.
Looking great. I use the paper towel method to germinate all of my seeds.
Slow dry method, a great way to cure.
LOVE the shots with the colorful background. This stuff looks tasty.
Thanks man. That background looks awesome on shrooms with a black light too. lol
Oh yeah I bet it does
Awesome photos man, you've done a phenomenal job with this Crystal Candy and I'm willing to bet it's going to be a really good smoke.
It's been great watching this one grow and I can't wait to see what the weight turns out to be.
Thanks homie. I really hope that it is a good strain. It will be nice to have a lot of it for my stash.
And who moves... in addition to participating in the contest, the thing that interests me the most is knowing how it is... it will certainly be phenomenal, but I'll wait to know the details after you try it!
Aghh so great, im learning different names for Weed!.
I would also like to see the process of drying and preparation into a Sweet Blunt.
Also my guess is for the plant:
500g dried (Pure goodness)
They look good, man. With the experience from the last competition, I think I can guess the weight of this one correctly.
We shall see how close you get.
Damn im a little late to this one... @takuri reminded me, id say a quarter pound or 114 grams.
Cannot wait to get some nice orange hairs like that.. hope it all dried up nicely.
