Congo are marijuana seeds from the ACE Seeds bank, which are presented in normal format or as feminized seeds, so you can choose the ones you prefer. If you were looking for a different flavor and effect, t consider these seeds because they have nothing to do with most commercial ones.
What is the genetics of these seeds?
It is a hybrid F1 made up of 2 genetics from Congo and the beautiful Chitral from Pakistan. Among the landraces of the Congo are the Bangi that is also involved in the powerful Bangi Haze of this same bank, and the Congo # 3 that it is a very special phenotype. Chitral is the mythical PCK or Pakistan Chitral Kush that so many seed banks use in their crosses, with a purple color in the buds out of the ordinary.
What does Congo look like in general?
Despite being mostly sativa, Congo grows fairly compact, with quite robust stems, good branching, and medium distance between nodes. Its leaves have long leaflets and medium thickness, and in flowering it can triple its size, forming a large central tail where it concentrates a good part of the general production. Some phenotypes show very striking bud colors, a trait inherited from Pakistani genetics.
How are these seeds grown indoors and outdoors?
In indoor cultivation, the ideal is to put 9 plants per M2 in 11-liter pots, without pruning, and with 3 weeks of vegetative growth. In this way the plants will end up with a height of around 80 or 90 cm, with 9 very large central tips surrounded by many branches that finish at a good height and perform quite well.
In the open air it is more interesting to prune the main tip to enhance the branching and in this way that the bud production is better distributed throughout the plant. If your intention is to make a plant as productive as possible, plant the Congo seeds in large pots or directly in mother earth, somewhere where it receives a lot of direct sun.
When is Congo harvested?
Indoors needs 8 to 10 weeks of flowering to be ready for harvest, depending on the phenotype and consumer taste. If you prefer the effect to be as awake and stimulating as possible, don't let it ripen too long, when you see most of the milky-colored trichomes it's a good time to cut.
In outdoor crops it is harvested during the first fortnight of October in the northern hemisphere, and from April 1 to 15 when it is grown outdoors in the southern hemisphere. During the last phase of the flowering of these plants some specimens show very showy dark tones, especially when the night temperatures are cool.
How much do these ACE Seeds produce?
In well-configured indoor crops, can exceed 15.8 oz per 3x3ft (450 grams / m2), and outdoors each Congo can give you more than 35.3 oz (1000 grams) dry, but for this the seeds must be germinated soon and transplanted to the ground.
How is the aroma and taste of Congo?
It is a unique blend between floral and fruity, which in the aroma is reminiscent of the petals of some flowers, but then in the mouth it is mixed with hints of berries, which is the predominant taste and remains attached to the palate.
What kind of effect do these seeds cause?
If you have tried African equatorial sativas, you will know that there is no other herb with a more electric effect than these, and Congo is one of its best representatives, although it is true that the cross with Chitral reduces its intensity. It begins as a chill that runs down your back until it reaches the brain, and there it seems to readjust the chakras and put you in a happy, motivated, talkative, energetic state, and above all happy.
