May require support due to branching and not the most suitable for SOG (does very well in SCROG grows, outdoor, and indoor) Patient Expectations. Scent: Smells like an odd mixture of rotting old laundry crossed with a dead skunk and pine trees. Flavor: Complex layers of Skunk, Pine, Spicy, Pepper, Earthy, Hash and a slight Citrus Funk. Effects: A near perfect hybrid high, with an equal head and body buzz that comes with zero anxiety.
More suitable for heavy smokers, or those looking for highly potent Cannabis. Can make you giggly, and send you into talkative introspective conversations. Typically does not make you sleepy, or induce couch lock unless taken in larger doses. Suggested Medical use: Excellent for pain, especially nerve-based pain. Users report that it helps with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fibromyalgia with exceptional results. The cannabis strain Romulan is an indica that smells of pine and bares an earthy, woody taste. When harvest-ready, its buds are quite frosty with trichomes and. It was purchased by a company named Federation Seeds who wanted to rescue the strain from dying out in 1996.
Because of this, Romulan was female-only and had to be crossed with another strain: White Rhino. Eventually, Federation Seeds back-bred the strain enough so that only 3% of White Rhino’s genetics now exist within it. Average THC levels for this strain are around 16% with some crops reaching up to 20%. It’s been described as having the ability to “dent your head”, creating ridges similar to the Romulan race in Star Trek. This is said because the high is powerful and strikes the consumer first with a head rush that releases itself throughout the body and sedates you into a couch-lock. It will cause sleepiness and is best used at night time, with many reviewers claiming it helps relieve muscle spasms and pain from nerve damage. Expect to have the munchies after consuming this strain. Romulan is known to have ill side-effects such as bouts of paranoia, dizziness, and headaches when high doses are consumed. All autoflowering cannabis plants , like any other plant, need nutrients to stay alive and grow. Macronutrients are nutrients plants use in large quantities: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). Micronutrients are the secondary elements and are absorbed in much smaller amounts: Magnesium (Mg), Calcium (Ca), Sulfur (Su), Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn) among others. Both macro and micronutrients are delivered by watering with mixed nutrients, pre-amended soil, or slow release powder. Remember you can always add more but never take away nutrients. Depending on the quantity fed to your plant you can overfeed or underfeed damaging your plant. The most common are diluted in water, mixed with soil, and in powder form to be used as a slow-release top dressing or to be mixed with the medium. There’s a big difference between organic and inorganic nutrients, both of them can come in the three different forms we talked above but work in completely different ways. Organic focuses on creating and maintaining a rich medium filled with microorganisms. By using organic nutrients you’re not feeding the plant directly, you are enriching the medium where microorganisms present feed on the nutrients, breaking them down and making it easy for the plant to absorb. Because you’re not feeding the plant directly, she can decide when and which nutrients to absorb so unless you do it on purpose, it’s really hard to have problems related to an excess or lack of nutrients. Inorganic nutrients work by delivering an exact amount of nutrients. To be able to do this without any damage to your plant you must really know the necessities of your autoflower. The nutrients needed for optimal growth vary from strain to strain so it’s really hard to know exactly what and when to feed. Usually, you start experimenting and if you see signs of underdevelopment or deficiencies you feed a little bit more. On top of that, you will have to adjust the amount given to an autoflower to avoid wasting nutrients (organic) and to avoid burning your plants (inorganic). Manufacturers usually make available instructions with an approximate schedule and amounts for the products they sell but they usually are directed to photoperiodic plants.
Having that in mind, we recommend always starting with half the recommended amount with autoflowers. The seedling sprouts with two little leaves called Cotyledons. These leaves provide what the plant needs to survive until the first set of true leaves appear. The first two weeks of cannabis growth are the most crucial because the little seedling is establishing its root system and it is very fragile. At this stage, you must be very careful not to overfeed. You can start your autoflower with 1/8 of the recommended nutrients or better yet, just give the plant water for that first couple of weeks.
If you overfeed your plant at this stage of growth it is highly possible that the baby plant won’t survive or if it manages to survive then the overall yield of the damaged autoflower will be greatly diminished. Tip: Water-soluble feeding gives the plant access to the nutrients immediately. If you are using mediums with added nutrients then you don’t need to feed the plant for the first two to three weeks (until the pre-flowering stage).
