I'm into my first grow in about 30 years, it's amazing how many strains there are now. Way back, we had pans or cubes. And, most of the pans we did were acquired in fields after it rained.
Anyway, I did a lot of reading up front and learned that the ideal cube strains for noobs are B+ or Golden Teacher, so I bought a syringe of of the GT and shot up 10 jars a week ago. All but one are showing growth, so I'm off on the right foot.
My question is, given that there are so many strains of cube, why are some (such as Penis Envy) reputed to be to difficult for noobs? Are they more sensitive to certain conditions? If so, what? Are they not as forgiving for PF TEK culture? PE are supposedly more potent than GT, so I would really like to get a grow of them started soon, but want to know what challenges I'm facing with that, any suggestions are welcome, as well as any other info on tougher strains.
Thank you all!
