Dayaam! I'm not gonna lie, I have a bit of cone envy at the moment. I've been pleased with the amount of harvest from my first year cascade but I haven't had any cones quite that size. What are you feeding those things?

He must be using a "cone enhancement" product. No doubt.

I started them with a steady diet of liquid nitrogen fertilizer, once I saw buds I switched to a fruit bloom fertilizer. Once a month I would give them a capful of superthrive.
