Got the seeds from Legends, excellent service and communication. Germinated 20 tiny seeds at the beginning of April indoors under flourescents. 16/20 germed. Put youngsters outdoors at the beginning of May, 50N West coast NA.

Very sativa-looking plants with Thai type leaves very thin lamina coarsely toothed. 9 females out of 16, began preflowering mid-June.

I should have probably prefaced this report with the caveat that these plants were not treated to the best of growing conditions as they were planted amonst some very vigourous plants acclimated to the local growing conditions and were more or less buried under their larger neighbours as a result. Nevertheless, they did pretty well considering the circumstances and wound up as small 3-4 foot Christmas tree shaped plants. Flowering in earnest began at the end of June (!!) and they were pretty much fully mature by the end of August, though I let a couple go longer to see what the result would be.

This strain is insanely early for what appears to be a pure sativa and although not given the best of cultural conditions still performed adequately. The potency of my examples was not that high, whether because of the conditions or genetics, nevertheless I got about an ounce per small plant of very nice, very sativa bud per plant with a wonderful fruity, sweet odour and a very uplifting high. No hint of couchlock.

I bred a couple of the girls to the best male and got a fair quantity of (oddly much larger than the original) seeds. I'll be trying this strain again under more suitable conditions next summer- not among the giants.

This strain has enormous potential I think, not so much as it exists but moreso as breeding stock for an early sativa project- this strain is damn near autoflowering and as such could prove of considerable use in trying to breed a more potent very early sativa.
