    Hey guys, I'm new to the site but have been reading along for years and out of all the online sites I find this one to be the best so I finally joined up....thanks for having me and I'm ready to start doing some grows...rite now I'm a few weeks in on this sour diesel and going to finish it here. If anyone has questions of info about this pheno I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic ( I know this site has a few kings of sour d) I'm really happy with the growth of this one, she grows what looks like solid bats of bud but its to early to tell because this is my first time growing this strain ( reg seed)...she had a perfect stretch, nothing crazy, just enough to have solid main tops with bud sites every inch and tight to the stem all the way up from the bottom...I'm on day 28 but have pics from seed till now, I will load them up if anyone wants to see them, if not I'm just going to start from today...

    About the room and and style of grow....

    4*8 tent...2 air cooled 600hps hoods with inline fan and carbon filter...
    Temps are at a solid 80 lights on 75 lights off
    Humidity @ 45%
    Bulbs---Ushio opti (new)
    Nutrients---organic soil on this one, act teas here and there....but I play it but ear and watch the plants..if I think they need something I have its all..... View attachment 335438 View attachment 335439 View attachment 335440

    Sour d day 33

    Everything is going steady. No burst of growth like some strains, she seems to be holding her color well. At this point its pretty much a hands-off grow, this time around I added more slow release nitrogen in my soil and I think its working, I wanted to keep them greener longer just so the fan leaves could be more productive a few weeks later. I gave her 1tsp of sensizym in a gallon of water just to turbo charge the breakdown of organic materials as she gets to the weeks when she's really gonna blow up, in a water only grow, enzymes act like a bloom booster if used at the right time. Some people use them the entire bloom phase, but i find if I transplant into fresh soil at day 1 of flower then thats all they need, so I wait until about week 5 and hit'em...enjoy !!!!!!

    I've been interested in trying this strain myself so a question for you or anyone that has grown this from cali connection, how close is it to the clone only sour d?

    Sour d day 35..........slow but steady.....I hope to see a burst of growth soon, day 30 to 40 always seem like forever on any strain 2 me. I like 40 and on-------but I'm tryin to do every few days because we all know that 1 question every new grower ask "do these look small for day #&" ....this way everyone has daily shots to check against in their future grows....enjoy!!!!!!

    Hey bro,well its swerves aj's cut (the real deal sour diesel) *crossed with sour og (sfv og * aj's cut) and he picked the most sour diesel dom plant outta the sour ogs and crossed it with the aj cut. I've seen some amazing plants come from them seeds....I think mine is gonna be a winner 4sure....

    He had to use the sfv og in there so they would be stable. The cut does not like to be s1'd. You can see some og traits in mine but they are good traits....the sfv og ain't no sucker, she's grade A+ also so anything you get is most likely gonna be some fire lemon diesel sour dank....
