It is not my first time using these tree pots, I used to run a SOG with clones in these pots. It is my first time running autos and coco chips in these pots. The goal was to get a longer tap root and, thus, a taller plant. That and the larger volume worked about as well as expected. One thing I'll say though, they sure get top heavy. If I didn't have the holders, things would have gotten messy for sure.
Honestly, the Sugar Black Rose I reversed was the best smelling of the bunch. I was quite upset to have to chuck "him". The smaller Dark Devil has the most frost.
The Red Poison have a nice smell and are the chunky. The Alaskan Purple is not purple at all, and has the most variation between plants. Finally, the Ghost Toof are tall with long internodes.
The longest I've run any of the Lowryder crosses is 10 weeks. Seeds generally take 4-6 weeks to mature fully, you might be hard pressed to finish them. That being said, I did let the Dark Purple go 12 weeks to finish up some seeds. The ones that fell out while trimming were definitely done.
