Plant physiology: 4.5 feet tall, assuming a three-week veg period. Width is about 2 feet.
Average yield: Total flower weight of 60 grams per sq. ft.
Flowering time: 63 to 70 days
Ideal light-intensity setting: 700 to 900 µmol/m2/s from double-ended HPS fixtures
Water needs: Maintain a volumetric water content of 55% to 60% in the grow medium throughout the flower cycle.
Ideal cultivation temperature: 74 degrees to 80 degrees Fahrenheit during first 56 days of flower; 64 degrees to 70 degrees Fahrenheit during last 7 to 14 days for optimal trichome ripening
Ideal cultivation relative humidity: 55% to 65% relative humidity (RH) during the first 42 days of flower then reduced to 50% to 55% RH during the last 21 to 28 days
Nutrient needs: Diamond Dust performs well in a nutrient formulation with an electrical conductivity (EC) of 2.0 to 2.8.
Cannabinoid profile: Type 1, THC-dominant variety with a decent amount of cannabigerol (CBG) that carried through from the Lemon Haze (sativa) lineage. Diamond Dust generally tests around 21% to 25% THC and 2% CBG, which gives a nice balance to provide a clean and clear high.
Terpene profile: d-Limonene, linalool, ß-caryophyllene, e-nerolidol, ß-pinene, and ß-myrcene gives Diamond Dust a terpene profile that is somewhat a mix of cheese funk and sweet.
Susceptibility to any diseases/conditions: Resistant to powdery mildew (PM) and botrytis
