This was my first grow This grow was remotely watched assisted and contributed by AutoMaster!! I started with 4 plants but one of the plants wouldnt show me female conditions after 35 days while the 3 other plants throwed their female pistils. The plant was chopped down Topped method was applyied on the 4rth node arund day 25 My setup was basic: -AirCooled Reflector with 600w Dual Spectrum -1.5x1.5x2 meter tent -580m3/h extraction fan -580m3/h insert fan on fan regulator -all my ducting and fan @ 150mm (6inch) -2 x 20 litre fabric pots, 1 x 15 litre fabric pot -With the guide and help from AutoMaster i used 2 x 150mm carbon filters @ 500m3/h each connected on a Y piece and then on the extraction fan -Advanced Nutriets Micro Grow Bloom, B52, Voodoo Juice, Piranha, Big Bud, OverDrive, Sensizym, RhinoSkin -Ph Down by Votanicare Phos ph down 0-15-0 -Pk 13/14 by Canna My water was from a bottle water company and it was @ 0.3 EC. I was using air pump and water pump to get it aerated at least 24 hours before feedings. I started with 0.7 EC and on the boost time i took it to 1.7 EC including the 0.3 bottle water EC Some photos throu the flowering period until harvest time Final weight is 800gr+-...Thats 1.3gram per watt! I was desperate to start growing and i was thirsty for knowledge! The first seeds i planted were removed after 20 days because i was feeling they was not going well! It was then when AutoMaster helped me out. He explained a lot of things, it took me some time to synchronise my thoughts but eventually i got a grib of all the knowledge he was throwing. Countless pages of infos, a lot of patience after and this is the results! Big fat buds, smelly jars and a yield to survive for a loooooong time xD I was really consisted on my enviromental runnings. The water temp that was going in etc etc. In the middle of the grow there was a ph punctuation after run off test and we had to apply soda bicarbonate treatment to raise the soil ph. It went fantastic! That blew them off to what was coming. I want to point out here that from all the seeds i germinate using the paper towel method, Dutch Passion seeds where 100% on germination and until now 100% on the female genetics. A big thank you to AM for all the assistance. It was a lovely grow with a fantastic yield! It couldnt be any better!
LEMON ZKITTLE (Feminized Strain) By Automaster.

Ph down in flower is phos PO4. Here is the HT write up, for one of the most potent strains to be hybridized by Dutch Passion in 30yr. cant wait to try her out x An evening with Dutch Passion at the 2018 Highlife Cup Dutch Passion at the 2018 Highlife Cup The Highlife Cup is one of the real highlights on the cannabis calendar for any serious cannabis breeder. It began in 1994 thanks to the Highlife Magazine (the sister magazine of Soft Secrets). What makes the Highlife Cup so special is that judging is done by independent judges in blind trials. Coffeeshops and cannabis companies enter their samples, after which they are labelled simply with a code. The samples are given to a jury of 15 cannabis connoisseurs, handpicked by Soft Secrets editor Clifford Cremer. The jury has 2 months to sample each and every sample. The jury only knows the categories of the cannabis they are smoking, but not the name of the samples nor the companies that entered it. The Highlife Cannabis Cup. Europe’s oldest and fairest competition The Highlife Cup evening is a very civilised affair, with music and BBQ food and of course plenty of top quality cannabis to enjoy. As well as being a relaxing social evening there is a serious side to the Highlife Cup. Some 135 samples of cannabis and hash were regarded good enough to submit to the judges, and over 8 weeks the judges assess and compare all the varieties. For many this makes it the fairest of all cannabis cup competitions, as well as being Europe’s oldest. The judges do their best to be as objective as possible, which makes the prizes all the more valuable. USA Cannabis genetics play a prominent role Radio 10 DJ and Highlife Cup veteran DJ Cobus Bosscha helped the evening flow smoothly along with Ed Rosenthal, who had flown in from Los Angeles. Ed is one of the USA’s more prominent authors/gurus on cannabis, and he must have felt at home surrounded by so many varieties with USA genetics in them. One of the benefits of the USA legal cannabis market has been the emergence of some top quality new genetics. These have been gratefully received by European breeders such as Dutch Passion who are bringing some of these classy USA varieties to European grow tents. Overall Highlife Cup Winner 2018. Top honors for Lemon Zkittle Dutch Passion’s Lemon Zkittle won 1st Prize in the Sativa Category, and was also awarded the Overall Highlife Winner Trophy. It’s a real tribute to the top grade feminized photoperiod genetics which come from Las Vegas Lemon Skunk which was crossed with Zkittle. With such outstanding parent genetics the chances of an exceptional hybridisation were good, and thats exactly what happened. This is one of the strongest varieties seen by Dutch Passion for several years, with extravagant resin production and a rich, penetrating aroma. The judges loved the top strength high and effects, and to win against such top strength competition is a real honor. Will take some pic of the LZK.......... at 6wks into flower and post them up in next thread. But all has been fine with the grow, coming into wk 7 of a 10wk flower, so ready for the finish line. Performing very well during veg and flower, with 3-4wks to go to flush, she is very trich laden at the mo....Automaster
