Hi all.

As the title suggests, any info on Big Bud would be much appreciated.
Is the strain sensitive to over watering, feeding, etc?  What variations
might I encounter with phenotypes? 
 
I'm into a slow veg and can see wrinkly cabbage leafs on one of two young plants.
I've just got two regular versions from a seed company and I'm pleased
at what I see so far.  They're about 7-8 inches tall, standing stout and strong.
They seem to love the sunshine during the day, as well as CFL lighting during
the night.  They're in soil and feeding on Biobizz grow n good old rain water.
 
Have you grown the Big Bud strain and could you share your
experince with these big ladies?
 
Thanks in advance. %3ceed%20leaf

sometimes seedlings can have a few messed up leaves.
It can be something they grow out of. Like a phase they are going through.

A picture would tell us more than a 1000 words.

All i know is Big bud performs rather fast in veg when provided with ideal humidity (55/65%) and temperature ( 28 celcius)

Provide well draining soil , and keep the Nitrogen feed on the high side .
You might want to add a bit of root accelerator.

Best to keep the bulb well cooled by a fan( blow into the light)
Bigbud responds to direct heat of the bulb by not vegging too quickly
You might want to hang the light a bit higher too.

Best of luck

last years i preferred a higher distance between plant and bulb too, the angle of falling light towards the whole plant is better, i was used to use a distance of 60 cm instead of the minimum of 40cm, less stress and better result, yield

Thanks for the replies and indeed, pictures would help.  I'll
see what I can upload shortly.

Humidity was around 50% during the hot summer months, but now it's cooled down
and is 55 - 60%.  Temps have been high at 85 - 90f, cooling to 80-85f.

Soil is mostly J innes no2 with some older hanging basket compost and perlite mixed in.
Drainage isn't a problem and root development under 250w cfl was very good.

I noticed height growth slowed down, yet they seemed to fatten out a bit under the 400w sodium. This is 30+ cm above the plants.  I've tied the tops over, in an effort to get more light to the bottom branches hoping for branches to clone.  Both turned out to be female, so very happy so far and bottom branches are now big enough to clone now.

These two ladies have thick stems and I'm expecting some large flowers and generally big plants, so I'll be switching the lamp to a 600w dual spec when they are big enough.

I'll get some pics up of the crinkly fan leaves and
general stockiness and profile of these ladies shortly. 

Thanks.

I remember the buds they look good but are not the strongest.

The switch to 600 watt cannot be done with the same low headspace: you would need to raise the bulb.
Indicas should be grown with low heat stress.
The evaporation rate ruins the lush growing of fat bud: i raise my light during the peak of flower to produce bigger bud, and more flavour; the best part of indica flavour doesnt like to high temperatures.

Big Bud needs a high-placed bulb= more space between the top and bulb = 60-70 cm with hps.
