Gold Leaf and Trainwreck what to expect


#1

Starting a new grow with these two strains from Robert. Only experience I have is with White Widow. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

You can read through my journal to see my gold leaf experience.

In my experience it has been nute sensitive. I had hardly ever gone above 800ppm and right now in week 5 of flower I am running 750ppm.

I had low humidity throughout the grow and it didn’t seem to like it in veg.


#3

Your going to like the gold leaf has a spicy grapefruit smell to it and its yummy

@Countryboyjvd1971
What’s the effect like? How long till harvest? Should I do anything different than I did on White Widow? I love this forum. The people are sooo friendly and helpful


#5

How hard it hits will be up to you and your harvest time @Grandaddy013 it a nice buzz i pulled mine at about 20% amber tricombes
Just practice good grow skill and feed and water according to thier needs when you get them going tag me to the thread


#6

Haven’t grown gold leaf and my only experience with trainwreck is from a different breeder. But from the sounds of it you’ll be pretty happy with both!


#7

I personally never grown the train wreck either but what ive tryed is great funny it’s actually one if my favorites
I should order some beans loland griw my own

I’ve got 2 gold leaf going right now I think I got 2 phenotypes as the look different one has broader leaves and a different shade of green both a healthy green and one showed slight nute burn and the other did not…so slight I kept with the full strength nutes and she adjusted well no burn on new growth…these plants are exploding very healthy great structure takes to training very well…can’t wait to see them in flower…first time growing gl so I can’t tell how it smokes but from what I’m hearing this should be some great meds… @Grandaddy013 and I have purple train wreck which is kick a$$…it’s not a ilgm strain but I’ll tell you every strain I’ve gotten from ilgm is great…100% germination I’ve done 3 grows with sour diesel all great and currently have 6 in flower doing fantastic and 2 in veg along with 2 ea of gold leaf, super silver haze, and purple haze all ilgm and all beautiful…

Looks like you’re gonna have a lot of weed there!


#11

I sure hope so @dbrn32. And thanks for the info earlier about the lights. Although I didn’t go with the LED, your info helped me make a decision based on my budget. Everyone here is soooo helpful


#12

No problem! You can do big things with hid, nothing wrong with them.


#13

Looking good!


#14

@Grandaddy013 Do you mind me asking the height of trainwreck in that pic? I’m growing some myself and am wondering what kind of height is normal to expect.


#15

@sweet_quiche I don’t mind at all. When I go over there today I will measure. This is my first grow of Train wreck. When I installed the first screen, I flattened everything out and tucked for a week before and after light switch to 12/12.


#16

@sweet_quiche I don’t have a clue as to how to post a link, but I googled " how tall does Train wreck grow" and it told all about it


#17

@sweet_quiche had to burn one and clear my head. I’m still a rookie and learning EVERY day. The people on this forum are super nice and helpful. One thing I’ve learned is that YOU are in control of your plants. You can train them to the size that YOU want by your growing techniques. Sort of like a bonsai tree. Topping, LST, lights, etc will determine size. @dbrn32 is go to guy for lights @Donaldj is nutrient guru. Like I said, I’m a rookie, but there are plenty of people on this forum that know their stuff and are happy to help


#18

Uploading…


@sweet_quiche this is my train wreck today. I switched to 12/12 on 4/4. About a week before that, I bent all the limbs down and installed bottom net at 13" above the container and continued to tuck until one week after light flip. Second net is 12" higher. I vegged for 8 weeks


#19

Cool, thanks for all the pointers! I kind of want to try LST and mainlining the plant, but also wonder if for the first grow I should just keep it super simple to get a good handle on things first.
Your plant looks insane! From 8 weeks of veg and 30 days into flowering? Do you have any idea what your total flowering time might be? I’ve read anywhere from 60-80 days can be normal but thought I might ask. Oh, and if you’re interested here’s a link to my journal!


#20

Did you do any sort of mainlining to your trainwreck? I read a mainlining journal from @garrigan65 that seems to suggest mainlining pretty significantly increased the grow time… I hate to be the impatient young kid in the group but I was hoping to have harvest around August, would that be realistic for a grow started on April 11?
