The grower was first of all very surprised by the homogeneity of his two Paradoxes, comparable to growing from clones, but they were grown from seeds. The Paradox plants spent the growing phase in 20 litres pots outside the greenhouse and were moved directly to the ground into the greenhouse after the transition to flowering.
Cultivation techniques for the Paradox
Growth in the vegetation was quite wild,only topping used 3 times.
After flowering started, the Paradoxes were defoliated and the inner and lower branches were pruned. In the second third of the flowering phase, some branches had to be bent or cracked and then fixed.
The bad weather was slightly offset by the greenhouse
Unfortunately the weather was quite rainy in September and the sun was behind clouds for about 2 weeks straight. However, thanks to the greenhouse and the hardiness of the Paradox, there was no problem with any mildew on either plant.
note : To reduce humidity and condensation in the upper part of the greenhouse, he had to cut quite large ventilation holes.
The problem with Napomyza pest
Grower has identified an infestation of the pest Napomyza during the growth cycle. Despite this being a pest whose impact on yield is negligible, damage to the leaves of Paradox plants increased the risk of rot. Once the invasion was resolved, the grower had to pay extra attention to the fungus, but the incredible resistance of this sativa did not give rot a chance.
Now let’s take a look at the large serie of photos of Paradox flowering plants. We’ll start at the beginning of the third week after the flowering phase begins.
Day 60 was the last day of the Paradox grow run. The last photo shows a sample of the beautiful Paradox bud.
