We germ our Double Kush Cake Automatic seed in a propagation cube. Once the roots have started to protrude from the sides, we transplanted our seedling in a 2.5 pint pot of BAC Lavasoil Growmix. It was then placed 80 centimeters under our HPS lamp.
At 3cm tall, our seedling already showed substantial cotyledon development, with two rounded lime green leaves predominating from the stem.
On day three we gave our Double Kush Cake Automatic 100ml of pH adjusted water with rooting hormone added around the stem. The solution was adjusted to pH 6.2 and had an electrical conductivity (EC) of 0.8. We also dispersed predatory mites to potentially eliminate midge and thrips pupae, and by the end of the week our seedling had grown to 4cm.
Across all vegetation, our Double Kush Cake Automatic received 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness. Our grow room was kept at a temperature of 26°C during the day and dropped to 22°C at night. We also maintained the room at 65% relative humidity (RH) for vegetative stagewhich was reduced to 45% throughout flowering.
At the end of second week, our Double Kush Cake Automatic had doubled in size; he had grown to eight centimeters and was consuming 200 ml of nutrient solution per day.
At the beginning of week three, BioGrow has been added to our feeding program, bringing the EC of our nutrient solution to 1.4. By the end of the third week, our Double Kush Cake Automatic had reached 12cm and was showing significant signs of development.
Side shoots were eager for light and the internodal spacing was short. Broad, lime-green fan leaves had developed, and the main stem thickened considerably. Our Double Kush Cake Automatic looked perfect for bloom!
Since we were growing a feminized auto strain, there was no need to change the light schedule, as the auto strains will flower anyway. However, since the photoperiod and auto strains were grown together, at the beginning of week fourwe changed our light cycle to 12 hours on and 12 hours off to initiate the flowering of our photoperiod plants.
We introduced bloom nutrients into our feeding program and stopped supplementing root hormones and BioGrow, which subsequently increased the EC of our solution to 1.6. We have also scattered bags of Amblyseius cucumeris and Amblyseius californicus to control potential thrips and two-spotted spider mites.
The apical meristem was prominently developing buds. White stigmas protruded from the main cola, and there was significant development of trichomes. By the end of week four, our Double Kush Cake Automatic had grown to 26 centimeters.
All along week five, our Double Kush Cake Automatic had grown over 20cm in height and reached 47cm by the end of the week. She had also doubled her water intake and was consuming 400ml of solution daily.
The apical bud became more prominent and the trichome coverage increased every day.
Even the side shoots were starting to develop trichomes. Dense formations of buds began to fill the short spaces between the nodes, and the cola was beginning to look impressive.
Sixth week began with a one-day flush to remove any nutrient residue in the root zone, and our regular feeding schedule resumed the next day. Broad fan-shaped green leaves extended from the main stem and the calxies increased in size. By the end of the week, our Double Kush Cake was now consuming 500ml of nutrient solution.
The buds swelled considerably throughout week seven, and our factory has increased its solution consumption to 900ml per day. The main cola continued to grow, and the buds at the ends of each side shoot swelled considerably. Trichome production increased dramatically and more buds were covered in sticky resin glands. By the end of the week, our Double Kush Cake had reached a height of 53cm and was showing significant development at every cola site.
Towards the end of week eight, the aroma became more noticeable and our plant smelled of moist, earthy goodness. The foliage was bright green, with five-pointed, serrated fan leaves covering the central stem.
At the end of week nine, our Double Kush Cake Automatic had reached its final height of 54cm and was consuming 900ml of nutrient solution per day. It was clear that she was now focusing on flowering, and the buds were coated in a thick layer of resinous trichomes that shone under the 600W HPS.
Weeks ten and Eleven seen our factory mature in its final stages. The fan leaves began to fade into beautiful fall colors and the buds became denser. The main stem had several compact and dense clusters of buds along the main stem. The central cola was particularly impressive; the pistils turned amber and the anthocyanins began to change the colors of the foliage to various purple hues.
At the beginning of week twelve, we began the final rinse of our plant to remove any remaining nutrients in the root zone. As our plant matured over the last few weeks of flowering, the fan leaves faded into beautiful shades of yellow, orange and light purple. The side shoots had developed into large, dense buds and an intensely pungent aroma filled the grow room. To our delight, the buds were huge for such a compact plant.
Many calyxes on the buds had turned a deep, vibrant purple and were covered in sticky resin glands. By the end of week 12, most pistils had turned dark amber orange and trichomes had turned milky white.
The first day of week thirteenit was harvest time. The foliage had taken on deep autumn colors and the calyxes were swollen and sticky. The axillary shoots turned into sturdy branches, and our Double Kush Cake Automatic was a magnificent sight.
We cut our plant below the first node, and taller fan leaves have been deleted. The branches were separated and hung upside down in our death chamber. Our drying room was kept at 18-20°C, and fans provided constant air circulation.
After two weeks in the drying room, the branches of our Double Kush Cake could be broken rather than bent, and it was time for the garnish begin.
The bud structure of our Double Kush Cake was very dense and compact. After lightly trimming excess foliage and resinous leaves, our gloves and scissors were coated in resin – perfect for finger chop!
We then placed our freshly manicured buds in glass mason jars and moved them to our safe for optimal storage at 62% relative humidity. The curing process took about three months. The jars were opened several times a day for the first two weeks, then daily for the duration of the pretrial detention.
Although we expected her to be a compact producer, we were surprised by her exceptional yield. After weighing the dried flower, we harvested an impressive 89 grams of our Double Kush Cake Automatic! After testing the cannabinoid content in the lab, he revealed that our dried flowers had a THC content of 15.22%.
Our Double Kush cake was heavy in myrcene, emitting a sweet, earthy aroma. It was sweet and savory, with a taste similar to its complex aroma – notes of earthy sweetness with moist undertones. A detectable flavor of sweet molasses and spicy hash was also present, complementing a complex aromatic bouquet of linalool and caryophyllene.
