Time for another Black Banana SOG. I have 17 of the BBC in a 2×3 tray. The other tray has 9 Tropicanna Cookies and 5 test plants. The testers are a Koffee and 4 Platinum Candy.
The Black Banana SOG will be a good producer and the BBC is a favorite of mine. The Tropicanna cookies is another long time favorite. I am also running 5 test plants. One is Kaya’s Koffee and there are 4 Platinum Candy. I have not grown either of these strains but have heard really good things about both.
Starting this SOG out running Dutch Master Commercial Edition and so far so good. I started with their standard root feed because I was unfamiliar with their line and quickly realized I needed to switch to their aggressive feed schedule.
If you are looking for good clean nutes without dyes or heavy metals you can give them a try. Read my Dutch Master Nutrients Review: https://420dotcom.com/dutch-master-nutrients-review.html
They only really sell from their website. Anything you see on Amazon is either their old Gold Line or is very overpriced. You can order Dutch Master Nutrients here: https://dutchmasternutrients.com/?rfsn=4449097.f8ec40

BLACK BANANA SOG DAY 1
Today these ladies were flipped over to 12/12 lighting. They were rooted clones to start and were given about a week of veg. The Black Banana makes large leaves so she was leaf stripped just before switching over. The other plants mostly had lower bud sites pinched off.
The Black Banana is under an HLG 550 but it was dimmed to 285 watts to match the Tropicanna and test plants under the HLG 300. They have plenty of light and it is summer so I want to keep temperatures down. Also with a sea of green lights do not need to penetrate as far into the canopy which is nice.
Kaya’s Koffee from Pacific Northwest Roots
This plant above is Kaya’s Koffee from Pacific Northwest Roots. I only have 1 girl and a boy I saved for possible breeding. I am pretty excited to see what she does. At the Seattle Cannabis Cup in 2014 she tested at 31% and High Times moved her to their Worlds Strongest Strains list.
