Nice work. I've gone 0-8 since my last good grow. Trying to find a good pheno. All have tasted terrible.

It is a hard work that has been made here, do you have any assistance?
I had very little assistance along the way. My wife helped me defoliate on Day 1 and 21 of Flower and she helped with the takedown. My mom helped me trim all of the flower. Everything else I did. It's a labor of love. It is a decent amount of work, but I love growing Cannabis! Already put 12 more seeds into soil.

What strains have you been trying? Genetics play a huge role in finding good phenos.

I was buying seeds. From assorted sources. My friends already have good clones. I just like looking for new unique strains. For example the Bubba Kush seeds ended up being a boring hybrid. I just keep switching it up until I find one.

The Colombian Miracle does have that mango flavor like I was expecting and Sativa effects like I was hoping for. There's a noticeable difference in how the three strains differ in feeling. The MAC is a good mix of the two that just makes you feel relaxed, Flintstones is a strong Indica effect that makes you feel sleepy, and the Colombian Miracle gives you that uplifting feel good vibe.

Wholly Mackerel is actually a Fox Farm product, but Advanced Nutrients does have some good names, every product has a "mascot" with their own name. I'm doing things completely different with my grow vs the grow op. At the grow op we were using Mother's Earth Coco when I got there and Cyco (the green bags). Some rooms had one and other rooms had the other. We used the 3 gal grow bags from Rio Coco for the tables that got installed in three of the six Flower rooms. Of all the coco coir products I've seen and/or worked with, Rio Coco is the best quality.

They were using House and Garden when I first got there with some success and decided to give Athena a try, like just about every other commercial operation. It's crazy to me how far Athena has come in such a short period of time, but that's what the power of social media can do when somebody like the Jungle Boys switches their feeding schedule to Athena. Advanced Nutrients was even forced to make a very similar product because so much of their market share has been taken away by Athena. Coco and salt based nutrients vs organic soil and organic nutrients. My plants smell way better than anything we ever produced at the grow op. I'm a firm believer in organic fertilizers in living soil is the best medium to produce the best terpene profile. And I've never done a cost analysis for Athena vs Advanced Nutrients, but AN is not as expensive as you would think. Just about all of their products are 2 mL/L rates, very potent products, decent cost per application. Fox Farm's products are more expensive per application.
Some more pics from the old job.

I sure think it does. Big Bud is the product that really built AN. In my opinion their most valuable products that could be incorporated into pretty much any nutrient regimen is Big Bud from week 2 up to the week before harvest and Bud Candy from the start of Flower until the week before harvest.

I've used Fox Farm nutrients in the past for my own grows mixing in various different products along the way, but once I finally decided to pay for the Advanced Nutrients line I haven't gone back. They're a pioneer of the Cannabis nutrient industry and have proven over time to be the best brand out there. I wouldn't use any other liquid nutrients at this point in my 13 years of growing. I've also seen the difference between House & Garden and Athena on a commercial scale and Athena is much better than House & Garden, but my flowers I produce at home with AN are better quality. The flowers are more fragrant, denser, and frostier. Advanced is expensive up front, but they are an excellent value per application.
