If you are into citrus-fruits then this is the plant for you. Very enjoyable plant to grow. Germination of 2 seeds without fuss. Growth rate during the veg cycle is somewhat rapid with the correct conditions. Within one week I had 8" seedlings. I tried to keep clear of using ferts and nutes until the first week of flowering. I used organic "Bio Bact" once a week with watering. Plants were vegged for 6"˝ weeks, could of pushed that for another week. I did notice stretching after 50 days of flowering from then the weight increased. Only thing I would stress on is keeping a lot of air movement during the flowering process. My results under 300w HPS was under average. If I doubled my HPS to 600w I'm sure my buds could of tripled in weight. More light the better, of course! The high is good after a few hits, can be a very motivating high. Recommended highly for back pain. I found smoking excessively can cause an attack of the giggles, though enjoyable.

I have wanted to grow California Orange for several years. My desire stemmed from the breeders descriptions of the smell and taste. I love oranges! Let?s start this off by saying I was horribly disappointed. California Orange is without a doubt the most unstable, underpowered strain I have ever grown. I would grow bag seed before I grew Cali-O again.

Germination: 8/10 seeds germinated with 4/8 being female. They grew in veg very quickly, stretching to 26? in less than 30 days. This led me to believe they might be more sativa dominant.

Potency ? Cali-O is more potent than Mexi brick and most commercial, but not by much. This strain never really generated much in the way of trichs and even when they were 100% amber it was still mediocre at best.

Effect ? Mellow body high, doesn?t last very long and isn?t very powerful.

Yield per Plant ? We yielded 3.4 ounces off three plants. The buds were grown under 2200W of light and they were light and fluffy. They dried into crispy little wisps lacking any substance.

Overall Opinion: Don't waste your time with this strain. I grew out four females and none of them shared any characteristics other than their green color. It was a crap shoot at best and I went bust on all four plants. As you can see from the pictures, they varied so much in appearence it was impossible to tell which one was "True" Cali-O. This will be the last time I waste my money on DP genetics.

Wow! I had a good feeling that this classic strain would impress me, and it has! After two grows of California Orange, I can say that I will continue to grow this frosty, stinky strain in the future.
The seed itself is smaller in size and germinates quickly in a warm environment, usually pops above soil within 4 days. Every seed of this strain that I have planted has grown up to be female--- which makes me believe that it is somewhat femenized. (Either that, or I'm really lucky!)
The pre-flowers of this strain tend to be large and super-plump. The pistils are extremely visible, like super-long eyelashes!
As the plant matures and goes into flower, the calyx become majorly swollen, quite juicy lookin' really. I've called them literally edible many times in my chats about this strain. (When trimming, I tasted a couple of the calyx's--- it was a sweeter taste than the AK-48 that I've grew out under flouro's.)
These particular plants in the photos went into an early flower because they grew up in October and November, the beginning of winter. This strain often grows a rather large main cola but can have many far reaching side-shoots forming a bushier rather than lanky plant.
When it comes time to harvest, all of the calyx are plumped out and densely packed, ressembling corn on the cob. The leaves, fan leaves included, have large, sharp resin glands glistening off almost every bit of greenery. In fact, the trim makes some incredibly potent cannabutter that just knocks your head out!
After a short (10 day) drying and natural air curing, the bud turns light ashy green in color with a heavy amount of amber-colored "hairs." The taste is pleasureable and light n' lemony. The high is somewhat "uppy" at first, as I found myself doing dishes and mopping the floors while smoking the Cali-O. If you smoke larger amounts, your body *does* sort of give out on you but your mind is still sharp and active.
My only complaint about this strain is that I wish it was a higher yielder... otherwise, I highly suggest this straing to all Ogers.
