Skunk #1 Feminized Grow Report

Follow Sensi Seeds as we grow our legendary Skunk #1 Feminized. A main staple in the cannabis industry since the 1970s, Skunk #1 produces large, dense buds coated with resin. We grew a beautiful Skunk #1 Feminized plant following a simple regimen that rewards us with a delicious, plentiful harvest.

Total time, seed to harvest: 81 days

Final yield: 83 grams

THC content: 15.81%

The legendary Skunk #1 Feminized is an acclaimed 65% indica, 35% sativa hybrid, renowned for its delightful blend of sativa euphoria and indica relaxation. It was initially bred by crossing landrace strains from Central and South America, Afghanistan, and Thailand. This famed hybrid has heavily influenced cannabis cultivation since the 1970s. 

A multi-award-winning strain, Skunk #1 was crowned the winner of various awards. At the 2014 Portugal Cannabis Cup, Skunk #1 was awarded first place as an audience favourite. In the 2010 Highlife Cup, she was also chosen as Girl of the Year (Chica del Año).

As the first stable cannabis hybrid, Skunk #1 would lend its genetics to countless crosses, including the modern-day classic Big Bud and Alpine Delight CBD. On top of that, Skunk #1 has formed the lineage of several other award winners, like the legendary Shiva Skunk.

Skunk #1 is beloved worldwide for its short flowering and bountiful growth, growing to an average height indoors and out. In addition, the plant produces thick stems and branches capable of supporting high-yielding harvests.

We conducted our grow of Skunk #1 Feminized indoors. Our grow room is 220 x 150 cm, and our plant was placed on an elevated table to allow easy access.

One 600-watt Philips Green Power high-pressure sodium (HPS) light was used throughout vegetative and flowering periods. Our plant was hand-watered daily using essential nutrients, and organic pest control limited outbreaks throughout the growing process. Fans ensured constant air circulation.

So, let’s dive deeper into our grow of the legendary Skunk #1 Feminized from seed, all the way through to harvest.

We started germinating our seed in jiffy propagation black, which allowed it to root quickly.

Once noticeable roots protruded from the sides of the block, the plant was moved into a 3-litre pot filled with BAC Lavasoil Grow mix. We then placed our 3-centimetre plant beneath the HPS grow light at a distance of 80 cm. 

The cotyledon looked very healthy and green, with two rounded leaves sprouting from the elongated stem.

Our Skunk #1 Feminized plant received a photoperiod of 18 hours on, 6 hours off to drive vegetative growth. We rotated the plant each day to ensure all parts received adequate amounts of light. 

Once we had transplanted our seedling, we dispersed Hypoaspis Miles for preventative pest control. These predatory mites prey on any fungus gnat and thrip pupae living in the soil. As such, we released 250 per cubic meter (250/m²) in hopes of stopping an outbreak before it begins. We repeated this process during week three.

We refrained from watering our plant for the first few days to allow its roots to extend into the soil. Then, on day three, we applied 100 ml of pH-balanced tap water with added rooting hormone around the central stalk. Our nutrient solution held an electrical conductivity (EC) of 0.8, and nitric acid adjusted the pH to 6.2.

We maintained steady conditions throughout vegetation and flowering. Throughout both, we kept a constant temperature of 26°C during the day and 22°C at night. Relative humidity (RH) was consistently 65%, keeping our little lady both happy and productive.

By the end of week 2, our plant had already grown to five times its size; it now reached 15 cm in height and showed multiple sets of true leaves. At this point, we began adding BioGrow grow nutrients into our water. The additional nutrients raised the EC of our water to 1.4, and our plant loved it! She’s also growing very thirsty, so we increased her water intake to 200ml per day during the week.
