Gorilla Passion Grow Update [GU:24-03-2020]

4 months ago


I have been growing a Gorilla Passion this season, from a seed supplied by @tecnosgirl. Here is a little update...

So far the plant is looking ok, for being shoved in a box in the basement that generally is 64°F. The plant is really starting to bush out, after all I have been pinching nodes since stage 2. The Idea is to grow this one similar to how I cultivated the Snow White last year. I may have an issue here though, this plant stinks way more than the Snow White I grew last season. Anytime I brush a leaf, and even sometimes in the am, I get that awsome skunky funk we all love! This has me thinking about flowering this one indoors. I know @tecnosgirl really wants to see it outdoors, so I may still get it outside.

That is what it looked like about a week ago. Figured I would throw in an image for growth comparison. As you can see in the next few pictures, the branching has begun...

I need to get a few of these nodes to get a bit larger so I can cut my clones. Wit the intention of getting it into my buddies tent that is running the 12/12 cycle. This allows me to know the sex of the plant prior to locating it in my garden outside. If I didn't do this step, I may be shit out of luck come flowering time, if all my plants were to end up male.
With the added dilemma of this CoVid19 outbreak, this function may be hindered. I may have to construct a small grow chamber to make this happen on my own, we will see how this all works out.


I can not express enough how grow lights add a wonderful look to the cannabis leaf. That deep blue, purple with red accents. The look can almost convey the smell, or at least invoke one's memory, if one exists, of the fresh canawonder!

There is something to be said about the smell of a grow. Medium, dankness, green fresh, you get the idea. Just like walking in your local national forests, that earthy freshness with a touch of marijuana.


Even though the lights make a great photo, it is also nice to see the plant in natural white light. You get to see more of the bright green yellows that are involved in cannabis's invigorating new growth...

It also allows you to see the lushness of the foliage that accents the definition of the leaf. I could spend all day with my plants if time would a lot it. Here for at least a month, I may be having some extra time for them. With the CoVid19 hysteria, my place of employment has shutdown upon order of the state governor. There will be more time for the kids, for the plants, and for all my digital projects, including my current dev projects in the works for the Smoke Network block chain.


I know I have been posting a lot of witness type information here on Smoke lately, this is because I want the community know there is still interest in development for Smoke chain related applications...

Currently I am trying to get a new [backup] frontend for users to utilize when Smoke may experiencing network issues. I apologize for the lack of bud images, close ups, and smoking sessions. I assure you I am always smoking, even when writing my codes/scripts.


Well hell, let me make this a joint session too...

I'll twist up some of my JCX I have sitting around. Nothing special, more of a filler strain, a straight sativa, but it keeps me high. Apparently it makes my buddies wife geek out, but well her tolerance is nothing to most of us. This weed mainly just keeps me off edge, even though sometimes it blows my mind too.


If you remember, I had 20+ ounces from this plant last year, it shows in the leafyness, you can tell I got sick of trimming it all up by myself, and with time constraints...

No matter, well extra matter, it still smokes up nicely, it's not too harsh unless you puff it right after a truly dank bowl. That's when you know, it's not quite up to par... No worries, try again next crop. JCX produces a hell of a lot of buds, however in my region it just doesn't have the adaquate time to develop properly outdoors.





It does grind up nicely for joints though...I suppose it can't be too bad, one buddy bought as much as I'd sell him, I had to cut him off politely as now I might, no will not have enough to get me to the next harvest. Bummer...





Hope your lock down, where applicable, is going easily. Keep puffin, and stay sane!

Until next time, toe toe toke it up!

I think the lighting thing is just a stoners interest in purpleurple stickyicky 🤔 I agree though that green stem to purple leaf looks insane...

20 Oz to trim ain’t that much ... can still be done as you smoke it 😉

I understand if you can't put her outside, but ironically that strain is bushy without much intervention at all.

That's a fat spliff! LOL
