Here is my latest grow/smoke report on Mr. Nice’s SHIT. A very simple cross of Afghani x Skunk it should yield a decent amount of tasty bud. I germed 9 seeds (half the pack). From the 9 I got 7 sprouts. From the 7 sprouts I got 5 plants. 2 of the 5 didn’t do well in veg and were culled. Leaving me with the 3 you see here. SHIT No2, my pick of the litter, turned out to be a man, so he was chopped last night after the pictures were taken. So looks like I’ll have two SHIT girls to choose from.
SHIT is very fast flowering; these girls have been in just a week and are already packin it on. I have to different expressions of SHIT, one a very nice colomer growth structure (SHIT#1) and one very bushy (SHIT#3). I have put 2 clones of #1 in veg and one of #3, if SHIT is any good I’ll flower some more
SHIT No1 is looking fantastic, at 3 weeks flower the top is about the size of a can of Red Bull, and is producing a strong musky, sweet smell. You can already see some pistils turning color, talk about your fast finishers. SHIT No3 looks good, no problems to speak of. I think more pruning was necessary on this plant, as it has become quite busy, and no where near as thick as her sister. She does share the same great smell.
SHIT at week 5 looks like it has maxed out on height but seem to really be packing on the weight now. SHIT No3 looks to be about a week behind her sister, which looks like 10-14 more days to finish. The smell is strong, but not overpowering; I’d call it a sweet musk smell, leaning more towards the skunk parentage. This is one of the easiest strains I?ve grown yet, seeds were a little small and a couple didn?t germ, but the ones that made it have no problems, they are dark green, and healthy, with no special attention. SHIT can get bushy and No1 seems to have benefited from the added pruning it received
The No1 plant, the more dominant of the two, has reached peak potency so she got the yank. Trichome production is amazing, even the undersides of the fan leaves are covered. Needless to say her trim will be going into the bubble bags soon 52 days is a short flower period in my book, so I’m sure I can make a home for her in the rotation, the compact size makes it perfect to fill in the holes between some of my larger plants. I must say this is one of the largest colas I’ve ever grown, combine that with the fact that it finished at about 26″ and took all of 5 minutes to trim, making it a winner in my book. The smell is musty-sweet, I keep smellin my pits while I was trimming thinking I was kickin the BO, but it was the plant…. I swear!
Well looks like SHIT No2 is done. Took about 5 days longer than No1 and is the smaller of the two plants. Had a lot more veg growth on this one, which translates to a longer trim time. Yield is also decreased; I’d say that this plant is about an ounce lighter than No1. No real discernable difference between the two plants as far as smell and appearance goes.
I will continue to grow out the No1 for a while. It yielded about 3.5oz of dried, smelly, and sticky, bud. Initial smoke reports are positive SHIT has a very complex flavor, very floral almost like perfume. Not a sweet flavor, mustier. The smoke is smooth, doesn’t burn the throat, even with uncured bud. The high is not overwhelming, about a 6. Good for wake-n-bake as it doesn’t leave you sapped. A bit of a creeper, took a few minutes for the full effect to take hold. Due to the light heady nature of the high, it would be easy to smoke this all day. I’d agree that SHIT doesn?t have the punch of the “one hitter” strains. I’d also say that the quoted finish time of sub 50 days is off. Overall I’m happy with the strain, and you couldn’t ask for an easier to grow plant.
