Grow Review: Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil by Middle Earth Genetics
This plant was my first from seed, so the seedling and veg stages were slowed dramatically by overwatering and incorrect environmental conditions. Despite all of this, the RG3xDP looked happy and healthy throughout, showing its resiliency to environmental factors. The plant was fairly short and squat like in structure, tons of side branches/offshoots. I didn't notice a proficiency for more or less PPFD, or drinking schedules as it was all a learn as I go process. I would say in sum, it was a very easy cultivar to grow, provided decent yield (would have been higher if the grow was more dialed in), and I ended up with about 3.5oz of head stash bud off the single plant under a Growers Choice ROIe680. I did not weigh it, but I probably pulled another 1.5-2oz in lower buds and trim as well for hash. Please note that the veg cycle for this plant was done split under a Kind K3 XL600 and a Spider Farmer SF2000. The plant was veg'd in 3gal and flowered in a 7gal pot. This was an organic grow with all Roots Organic dry amendments for feed, Fish Shit / Photo Plus / Recharge for microbials, and PH'd bottle spring water, in a water only soil - I can't remember which.
How Much Does Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil Stretch?
The stretch was very minimal for this plant, maybe a total of 6-8 inches in vertical growth from the start of flower to harvest. Had I known this going in, I would have vegged out the plant a bit longer to increase the structure and thus the yield of the plant. I had four other plants moved into the same tent with the RG3xDP a week or so delayed and within a week or two, it was already overrun by the stretch of the others.
Harvesting Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil
I tried to read the trichomes as it neared the end of week 7 and 8. I was looking for about 40% amber rate. In all honesty, I had too much going on and didn't pay as close attention as I should have for harvest on this cultivar. I noticed that not much was changing in the way of color, any remaining fan leaves were pretty well faded out, and I wanted the additional space in the tent, so I made the decision to harvest.
Drying, Trimming and Curing Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil
I did a dry trim after about 11 or 12 days drying. I should have gone a few days longer looking back but I grew impatient. I was drying in a 4x2 tent with two small fans circulating air at floor level, along with a dehum/humidifer combo on a controller to manage the range. In addition I had constant airflow coming in from an AC in order to combat the temps. My drying conditions ranged from 65-71 F and humidity was between 48-63%. These fluctuated constantly as a result of the setup I had going, and was not ideal overall. I trimmed and stored in jars about 80% full and would follow this burp schedule (mostly): Week 1: 3-5min burp twice daily Week 2: 5min burp once daily Week 3: 5min burp 3 times per week This was significantly impacted by my daily reaching into the cookie jar from the day they went in.
The Flavor and Smell of Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil
The flavor is a bit gassy at first with a little bit of a kick, but is followed by an almost creamy and smooth aftertaste that has a women's perfume or soap profile. The stem rub on this plant was very faint, and had a piney/citrus smell. Early flower had very mild terps, pine aromas were the only I was able to identify.
The Effects and Uses of Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil
The high is slow to build, and is a very pleasant relaxing feeling. No couch lock, not a ton of psychedelics' either. It is a feel good high for productive tasks or just daily activities. I do notice a sleepy come down so this could be great for before bed as well.
My Overall Impressions of Rob's Gift #3 x Dilated Pupil by Middle Earth Genetics
This is great smoke for the day time or just to relax from life's stressors. The grow was easy enough that a first time gardener could succeed with it no problem, I did! Not a ton of height so indoor grows will be a great application. Very greasy/sticky buds with a great floral/soap profile. I would recommend this to a future grower.
