Frost Bite from Chimera

This frosty hybrid packs on the weight!!! She's a large yielding girl with incredible resin production and a strong aroma. 2 lbs + per 1 kW light easy using the Sea of Green technique :) much more for experienced gardeners. These plants tend to stay columnar from seed, but the clones will branch given adequate space. Yield: They go huge!

The best of the best I have yet experienced, these ladies were the largest yielding plants I've seen in real life in ANY garden.

They exhibited some variation, and the 3 females of 10 I got exhibited the most (oddly). One short bushy and dark @ 3 something feet, one taller with very few branches and a large cola, and one WHOA 'monster' that got over 4ft and almost 6ft wide and had over 24 major budsites, it took up over half of my 1000w flower space.

Grew quite vigorously in Vegetative state. They stretched somewhat mildly when flwered @ 7wks of age. From seed they took ~ 57 days, from clone we got one as early as 42 days, most @ 49-50.

Clones took easily. 14 days with some stress in soil w/ humidome. 7-10 days in AeroCloner with NO signs of stress.

They seem to like median levels of fertilizer, and are quite stress resistant. One of our ORIGINAL Frostbite from seed is still in its pot @ 7 months age, after being harvested 2 months ago it is was re-vegged and is about to be a big time momma (and is still in immaculate condition).

I should mention the breeder is one hell of a nice guy to boot.

These were my favourite plants. Bar none.

Odor Description: Forest pine smell

Garden Style for This Report: Perpetual Harvest


Chimera's Frost Bite produces long trichome covered colas. The bud grows at almost every region along the main cola from the bottom of the stem upwards. You have never seen anything like it when it does that. Hardly any visible node regions on the stem that do not contain bud.

Frost Bite is a very resinous strain and produces are very strong smoke. Frost Bite has some of the best trichome development you can find on any strain. The glands are clearly visible within a few days from initial flowering and cover most of the cola leaves to their tips.

The problem with this strain is that is does not branch too well and the calyx to leaf ration is quite low - meaning that you will have to do lots of manicuring to prepare the bud. Check my pictures.

Overall Frost Bite is not a bad strain and is a must for trichome lovers who want to enjoy a frosty plant.

Report 3 of 3From Hippiechik

Effect: Nicely balanced
Odor Description: Aromatic pine
Taste: Complex, interesting strong cedar/pine
Garden Style for This Report: Sea of Green SOG
August, 2003

Seeds were started on 8/27/2003. By 8/31 all the Frostbite seeds had sprouted and the seedlings fully emerged. Plants were vegged under 24/0 lighting until 10/16, when they were placed in the flowering room under 12/12 light schedule. All plants were harvested on 12/20 (day 65).

Plants were grown SOG style in 4 gallon square pots. All lower branches/nodes were trimmed off to increase budmass in the upper (main) colas. Soil was Miracle Gro potting soil, with GH series hydro nutes given for fertilization. Soil/nute amendments & supportives added: Biohumic/fulvic acid, "Dark Energy" plant supplement, and finely crushed eggshells.

This was a fairly easy to grow plant, not at all fussy. It was described as being primarily a "single cola" strain (columnar) and my experience with it upholds that description. It was branchless and held true to type as a columnar plant. One plant was too vigorous during the stretch, and had to be topped in order to stay within bounds, but the plant still remained quite branchless even after topping.

It was also described as a very heavy yielder -and again, my experience with it fully supports that description. This plant gets HUGE! In fact, I would strongly suggest staking these feisty critters up during flowering -they get so fat and so heavy that even a thick stem isn't able to support the weight of the buds.

Taste was surprisingly powerful, given the relatively low odor of this plant. It produced a very intense pine/cedar flavor, rather like smoking incense rather than cannabis -simply excellent. The effect was somewhat couchy and overall quite pleasant, tho it gave a powerful attack of the "munchies."

Overall I was quite pleased with this strain, and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a heavy yielding SOG strain for indoors.
