This grow am trying these two strains under different light setups. Half of them will be under LEC 630 watts lights and the other half under HPS 600 watts lights, that way I can compare the differences of both systems not only regarding productivity but also in potency, looks, terpenes content, etc.
I grew Papas Candy under LEC last time, and although am happy with the production, am not so happy with the finished product, and I have a feeling LEC lights could be the reason why.
Nothing like a good start, adding Mykos to the Coco
And to make it complete, strong clones with a developed root system, this will guarantee no dead clones and a shorter veg period
Papas Candy (Eva seeds - Spain)
Papas Candy is a cross between a Laotian landrace and a Pakistani landrace. Short and very strong plant with an excellent leaf to flower ratio, it can be ready in 7 weeks with trichs maintaining their milkiness all the way to the 58th day, last grow I harvested between the 57th and 58th day, this time I will harvest most likely at the 49th day to find out the differences. My guess is that flavors might vary.
To the left are the plants under LEC, to the right under HPS, it is easy to see the different light spectrum each one gives.
I will be growing in 8ltrs cloth pots.
Mother Earth (Mr Hide Seeds - Spain)
A cross between Critical Mass and Big Bud, Mother Earth has won over 20 cannabis cups in Spain since 2013 for Indoors, Outdoors, Roisin, BHO categories. With such parentals, I am not surprised, both genetics have been around for years and are top.
Ready between 57 to 63 days I can´t wait to see the buds this girl produces
Here again, to the left are the plants under LEC, to the right under HPS
Also will be grown in 8ltrs cloth pots.

To end, maybe you guys have seen a small plastic bag in one of the pots? Since I like to introduce products, this one is one of the best biological preventive measures against red mites. This time of the year is when they show up, and I rather prevent before getting the problem, so I invited a bunch of "Neoseiulus californicus" a natural predator, the thing about this one is that asides eating red mites he has fun destroying the net red mites use to protect themselves, a very good product
I hope you have enjoyed it if you have any doubts/questions or just want to show some love, hit me here
