News Joint Grow Journal 2.0: Five Signature Strains is back to spotlight with a second entry with the fifth strain: Strawberry Cough by Kyle Kushman at Homegrown Cannabis Co.
I left off with me letting the Strawberry Cough do her thing and stay out of her way, except for pruning a few leaves and rotating the plant for best light coverage. The plant grew in a spiral motion into short stout and leafy plant.
As recommended, during mid vegetation, I followed Kushman’s advice for chiropractic techniques, and a few days before I flipped the Strawberry Cough to the flowering stage, I followed his the technique again, along with his supercropping advice.
Because the Strawberry Cough was shorter than the other plants, I placed the fabric pot and tray on a metal trashcan to even the height of the canopy. Out of all the plants I have grown, this Strawberry Cough was low maintenance. As long as I fed her every three days like clockwork, she bushed out.
I low stressed trained the branches but the spiraling growth created a separation of leaves and until late in the grow allowed light in the middle of the plant’s growth. From seed to chop, this Strawberry Cough was a plant-and-her-grow seed, which was what I did.
The leaves on the really frosted up after five weeks of flower and the smell of the plant was more kush than strawberries until the very end of flower when a strawberry scent crept in.
I could tell the Strawberry Cough was going to take longer than the rest of the Five Signature Strains (Tenzin Kush #4 x Hazy Kush by Green Bodhi, Jilly Bean by MzJill Genetics, Peanut Butter Cookies by Tastebudz), and PuTang by Mass Medical Strains).
I chopped each plant throughout on a different day from nine-to-ten weeks. The Strawberry Cough was the last to finish, 10 weeks and two day.
