Sprouting and seedling stage


Three Gold Leaf feminized seeds were germinated in warm water.

As soon as the roots started to show the seeds were placed in peat pods to finish germinating. The peat pods were placed on raised heating mats ensuring proper germination temperature.

The seedlings sprouted up in two days. Perhaps the quickest germinating seeds to date we’ve encountered.

Light is now introduced 24/7 for one week. The light was a hundred watt grow bulb. The roots were immediately hit with root stimulant.

No fertilizers just yet. As soon as the peat pods showed roots extruding from the sides they were transplanted into 4 inch potters.

The grow medium was ProMix #5 with 10% worm castings. From there CO2 and an oscillating fan were introduced. They’re not in the grow tent yet.

Transplant Seed pod cutting into to root base

Noticed that one of the young plants was not growing as good as the others.

Soon it was looking wilted and died.

Upon inspection 1/2 of the seed pod stuck at the base of the root stem. Happened just under the growing medium so the seed pod cut the stem as it tried to grow. Couldn’t realize until too late. Last rites were observed.

The Gold Leaf marijuana strain was transplanted into 3 gallon buckets.

Went a little small with the buckets to control plant height. Utilized the same grow medium as the seedlings. Introduced a fertilizer schedule.

Placed our two new plants into a 4x4x6 grow tent. Used a 600 watt grow bulb. Used a new light reflector literally covering the entire space. Went to an 18 hour light cycle.

Gold Leaf Strain Review Grow Techniques

Right off the bat I wanted to learn how heavy the pots were when fully watered.

From there I kept lifting the pots every day to realize how fast the water was releasing. When the pots get light weight that it’s now time to water.

I did not use a time schedule for watering.

When each pot was ready it got watered. They would be ready at different times. Found this to be a great watering system.

Found this to be a great Gold Leaf strain review technique when doing a final flush to ensure no over watering issues.

In the tent I let the cannabis plants grow in the vegetative state for 18 more days. Marijuana plant height is always an issue when growing in a tent.

From past experience we had to top some plants because they outgrew the tent height. This time I ended up with beautiful 4 foot tall marijuana plants.

Perfect height requirements for the tent. Switched the lights to a 600 watt super flower bulb.

Love the time the plant takes to grow tiny buds. Just love watching them grow every day. I made sure the marijuana sweet spot was realized every day.

Watching your plants continuously can keep you ahead of any grow issues. Problems are taken care of right away.

A great situation for the Gold Leaf strain review was the dry spell experience for the last two months of growth. This helped keep the humidity in the right place, 52%. it also was a great help in drying the plants at the proper humidity.

Growing in the tent

Flowering the Gold Leaf Strain took 67 days.

I flushed the plants for two solid weeks. Started the flush when the first orange hairs appeared. The plants seemed to love it. THC production was superb.

I had to be careful lifting the pots to check for watering levels.

The plants are top heavy when the water is low.

This leads to a top heavy plant that will tip over easily.

I used a 43x USB microscope to look at the trichomes during development starting around week 5 of the flowering stage. Once I have the milky looking trikes I know its time to harvest.

The final step was to place the plants in a 24 hour dark period before harvest. I made sure the plants were super dry, no water. These techniques had the plants sticky, smelly and ready to harvest.
