This was my 1st grow and this plant grew very well for me. She was vigorous and branchy which made for an excellent scrog.

started 3 seeds 100% germ rate
one died after a week when a light fell - started another seed

vegged 21 days in 6" RW cubes with top feed - then after 2 weeks of 12/12 sex was determined two girls were left one was a week behind - the seedling and she got tossed - so one female left was fitted with DWC bucket and super simple scrog.

Clones were taken with just tap water at week 2 of flower with 100% rooting after 14 days.. so Id say she clones easily.

she grew kind of branchy and in flower definitely had a sativa dominant appearance - the c99 really shines through on this pheno.

she was not a heavy feeder - I tried 1050 ppm in flower and she didn't do well - 700-800ppm seemed to produce optimal growth.

On the advice of Joey Weed and some other helpful folks I waited until 80% of the hairs were red and the crystals had started to show amber, and flowering lasted for 63 days total 12/12

From what I've heard this strain should finish quicker but I think my lack of veg time extended flower time a little - I plan on growing out a clone of the same strain to see if she finishes earlier.

But I was glad I let her go the extra time as she really packed on the weight in the last two weeks - it was like she stretched just a little more between the bud leaves and then just filled in. In late flower she produced little bud spikes off of the colas that are really sweet.

This is very good stealth strain as it doesn't really smell at all even in the late weeks of flower.

Since she had lots of little bud leaves there was quite a bit of trimming to be done.

Final yield was around 44 grams + some excellent kief/hash

I grew 2 plants under a 150 HPS and they both yielded around the same for a total of 3 oz.

The buds after one week of drying and one week of cure don't have a very strong taste - light and kind of peppery some tropical fruit flavors (pineapple) on the exhale - Hopefully she'll be more flavorful after a good cure.

After 4 weeks of curing the citrus aromas are stronger and the flavor is getting better. I just got a vaporizer and this weed is really tasty when vaporized - lemon and lime with a hashy herbal undertone.

Appearance wise she's a beauty with glistening glittering crystals just like c99 - Lots of red hairs and small bud leaves give a fluffy sativa like appearance but the buds are still very dense inside. It's these inner bracts and bud spikes that are just completely glistening and silver/white with crystals.

Unfortunately she appears to have hermied a little and produced a very few tiny immature seeds in the lower older buds

The high is very strong, but kind of creeper - you really don't realize how high you are for the first ten minutes and then it's like "damn I'm high" and it keeps building - it will be a half hour after you smoke and you still feel like your getting high - easy to overdo it - after the first 1/2 hour it's pretty stable and long lasting... very visual - in a clear way - juxtapositions of things at different depths in the long light of late afternoon produce strange effects... trippy, for weed - very speedy too - hard to stay seated - definitely not a couch lock strain

The keif got pressed into a nice tan hash - it has a devastating buzz, not a day ender but a day bender.
