The power of Deimos turns more than one pale, it's a devastating plant, it's taste is classic sweet and tangy, a perfect plant to relax, intrspection, go to the movies, medicinal use, or just to knock down that friend, who's an "expert" on the issue
Deimos is a hybrid which origins are mostly indica (northern lights) a work of selection of 7 generations in order to obtain the features of a Classic in an auto flowering plant.
Deimos is a big sized plant, with good growth in width and high. The selection of the more branched specimens has prevailed; long lateral branches which yields buds as big as that of the central branch. This way productivity increases but the plant remains discreet in size, between 70-80 cm. Due to its nature Deimos becomes the perfect autolowering plant for outdoor and indoor.
The process of growth and flowering of this hybrid cultivated in the east of Spain, specifically outdoors and mainly in clay soil.
In order to improve the consistency of the land and provide it with nutrients, before planting, soil is mixed with horse manure.
Pn April 10th starts planting. The 35 planted seeds were germinated three days before in a seedbed, being transplanted to holes in the land filled in with soft substrate.
A large plastic cup is placed on each plant to protect them from insects, snails and birds. The plants remain in that way during the first phase of growth (for one week and a half), when they are most vulnerable. When they reach an appropriate size and the animals are not a risk, that protection is removed.
Is installed a line of dripping that irrigates the plants two hours per day after 07:00pm Slowly, and when the plants need it, the water supply is increased.
The plant begins to widen and branch. One week later, the plants begin to take strength, and seem to be healthy and vigorous. They grow fast and have resistant stems and strong shining leaves.
During the phase of growth, no fertilisers are used. We only use those the land where the plants were cultivated had.
On May 12th, we can appreciate the first signs of flowering. As expected, after using feminized seeds the result is 100% of female plants. For an additional supply of phosphorus, we dust 2kg of bat guano on the land.
On May 19th, a lot of pistils appear in the plants, which is a clear sign of the great productivity that have the plants of this variety.
On June 16th, the plants show big and compact buds of great quality that have reached a considerable volume because of the strength of the variety that knows how to make useful nutrients of the land and sunlight.
On June 25th, buds are harvested and dried, and after that they are weighed. Total production reaches 3.920g. with an average of 112 grams per plant. The plant that produced the most quantity was 226 grams.
