Final yield: 134 grams

THC content: 15.5%

Sensi Amnesia Automatic is an exclusive cultivar found only through Sensi Seeds. It is popular not only because of its genetic lineage, but the flavour profile and effects make this a standout strain. Sensi Amnesia was created using Jamaican Pearl, Afghani #1, and Hawaiian Indica. Effects from the female flowers often recreate the favourable effects of sativas, while the indica lineage breaks through, for a relaxing experience.

As an automatic strain, Sensi Amnesia was made for growers that needed a plant that was quick to finish the seed-to-harvest process. Indoors, this plant thrives. Outdoors, due to the automatic trait, Sensi Amnesia automatic can be grown in cooler climates and those that experience heavy rains later in the traditional growing season. Also, being a feminized plant, growers don’t need to worry about culling the males. Plant the seed, give it a little love, and soon enough, gardeners will have buds to harvest.

We have used many methods to germinate seeds in the past; paper towel, a cup of water, directly in the soil, and as we did on this grow, pre-moistened propagation cubes. Within a couple of days of placing our seeds in the jiffy cube, we saw our Sensi Amnesia emerging from the medium. These two days of waiting allowed us to prepare our room for the upcoming grow cycle.

The 1000w Green Power Phillips HPS lights were ideal for covering our growing area. Our HPS lamp/hood combination was fixed, 300 cm above the floor. This allowed our plants to grow upward to the light and kept the high-intensity light far away from the sensitive seedlings. Once the seeds had germinated and showed roots from the jiffy cubes, we moved them into 1-litre containers filled with BAC Lava mix soil.

The grow space was large enough that we used multiple fans to circulate the air within the cultivation area. We positioned numerous fans slightly above the canopy, and others were placed on the opposite side, underneath the canopy, to prevent pockets of stale, moist air. In addition, we used exhaust fans to remove and exchange the air. The air inside was extracted through a carbon filter, which can help remove pungent odours during flowering.

Environmental aspects such as temperature and humidity are essential to maintain within particular parameters during various stages of growth. Our environment tends to be more humid than dry, so we equipped ourselves with a dehumidifier instead of a humidifier. Our exhaust fan helps control temperature by extracting hot air and bringing in fresh air.

In the initial growth stages of our Sensi Amnesia Automatic, the humidity was kept at an elevated level of 65%. The light schedule in the garden was less relevant because of the automatic trait, but we programmed our timer for 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness each day. We kept this same light schedule for the duration of the grow diary.

The temperature of the grow room is an equally important factor to maintain. Often, there will be a fluctuation of both temperature and humidity when the lights go off. A prepared gardener will anticipate these changes and install the correct environmental controls to keep balance. Our grow room temperature with the lights on was held at 23 °C, and with the lights off, the temperature was maintained at 21 °C. These temperatures were consistent for the entire growing cycle.

The first week our Sensi Amnesia Automatic was above ground, we began with our IPM program. Treatments in the garden consisted of hanging sachets of Hypoaspis Miles around the base of the seedling. These beneficial predatory insects are helpful in the fight against fungus gnats and thrip pupae.

Another beneficial practice in the garden is turning the plants a quarter turn each day. This strengthens the main stem by causing the plant top to reposition itself closer to the light. Using the fans created a gentle breeze around our seedlings which will help strengthen cell walls within the stem and branches.

When it was time to place the jiffy cube into the 1-litre container, we gave the plant 100 ml of water directly around the cube. A diluted nutrient solution using Bio grow nutrients was added to the water. The combined EC of our solution was 1.3, and our water was pH balanced to 6.2.

In week two, our Sensi Amnesia Automatic quickly took off with vertical growth and to support stress-free growth; we transplanted it into a larger, 3-litre container. The volume of the water solution remained the same at 100 ml, and we continued to pour the solution directly on and around the base of the stem. As the roots matured, we increased the EC of our water solution to 1.5.

From the soil to the top leaf, our seedling measured 7 cm. Already she had two nodes, and the first set of five-fingered leaves were beginning to unfold. At the lowest node, we could see the side branches starting to develop.

The vertical height had doubled to 14 cm by week three. Although our cultivar has not had any pest issues, we proactively released two new types of beneficial insects into our garden. Amblyseius Cucumeris were released to reduce any thrip larvae that may exist undetected. Amblyseius Californicus was used to hunt and eat any two-spotted spider mites potentially lurking around.

Having the fan blow a gentle but steady breeze over the young seedling helped build strength in the main stalk, which supports all of the growth. Side branches from the second node had almost caught up to the main top. Our Sensi Amnesia Automatic had twice as many nodes as the week before, putting out five-fingered leaves at every node.

Watering amounts remained at 100 ml, but again the EC was increased to 1.6. The plant’s colour was consistent from the lower leaves to the top and was a lighter, neon green colour.

During week four, we transplanted our Sensi Amnesia Automatic into the final 5-litre container and began increasing the volume of the solution. We started the week at 150 ml and gradually increased the amount until we reached 500 ml by the week’s end. Our solution had an EC of 1.6 and a pH of 6.2.

It had been a few weeks since we released Hypoaspis Miles to combat any potential fungus gnat and thrip pupae. We opened another sachet and set that on the soil in the container. Internodal space on the plant had increased, allowing each side branch enough space to grow outward. The morphology of our Sensi Amnesia Automatic helped capture direct light without competition from branches immediately above it.

It had been approximately three weeks since our seeds sprouted, and this was the week when we detected the first signs of stigmas. This is an indicator that not only is this plant female, as predicted, but that this plant was beginning its flowering period.

Normally growers would need to change their photoperiod light schedule to trigger flowering. However, automatic seeds like these do not need the grower to do anything; they will begin flowering independently, and there is no need to change the light schedule in your garden.
