  Breeder's Description - 'Ducksfoot'
Breeders report on Ducksfoot.

Plant structure:
Up to 8 ft in height and can be as wide, average around 6 ft. Very large, bushy webbed leaved plant . . . tends to like to spread with training to produce masses of large tight and very heavy, smelly buds. Buds have been as large as my leg... The Ducksfoot seems to be a very hardy plant. It begins to show its webbed traits on the second set of leaves, that come out quite wedged shaped and usually single bladed. The following leaf is the typical 3 fingered Ducksfoot leaf. Successive leaves will continue up to seven apparent points, and can be v ...continued

This Ducksfoot is the easiest strain I have ever grown outdoors. The plant just takes off and doesn't require much effort from the grower. I topped mine 5 times and the stem to the top was still 8' long when finished. I planted the Duck straight into the earth with no goodies at all in the soil and ...continued

Started beans outdoors early April, 10 beans produced 5 M & 5 F. 8 were transferred indoors and 2 planted outdoors.

Indoors the plants stayed rather short (under 36") and went for over 4 months without ever really finishing- four plants gave about 3 oz of bud so not the largest yield I've ever seen but the smoke was simply sublime. Very rich, eathy flavor- reminded me of coffee and chocolate- I found my hand reaching for the duckfoot jar over and over when it came time to blaze up. Smoke wise, it reminded me of this very good Mexican pot I used to get many years ago- smoke it all day long, get high as hell and never grow tired of it...lovely stuff.

Outdoors the plant was extremely hardy and easy to grow, survivng all Nature threw her way. However, her branchy growth, slow maturation and late finishing date drastically affected yield. The plant was harvested at the end of October due to weather but she could have easily gone a month or more- pushing harvest back to the end of November or even possibly early December.

I had expected to pull a lb or more off the outdoor plant, as growing conditions were perfect...however the plant grew mostly lumber and little popcorn nugs without putting any effort into growing a massive main cola. Sadly the yield was less than a half oz, not much for so many months' work.

The plants tend to be very branchy and show their tropical sativa heritage- not really suited for indoor use. Outdoors in middle latitudes she may not finish before frost- her ideal location is inside a greenhouse but her stealthy leaves allow her to be grown almost anywhere. Ducksfoot is a tough and hardy plant, able to shrug off even the worst problems and keep on going.

Those webbed leaves do add a lot to the stealth- however, do NOT rely on them to hide this plant completely through flowering! They fall off and the plant reverts to a more sativa appearance once flowering begins...in other words, in veg it's stealthy- in flowering, it looks just like regular cannabis. Prune this plant down hard to minimize excessive branching and useless lumber- otherwise, you might end up with a broom instead of buds.

Even with the drawbacks I experienced, I'd still recommend this strain to anyone looking for something to grow outside. Ducksfoot survived tough conditions that would have killed off weaker cannabis, and thrived. I still feel anyone can grow it, though to grow it as well as wallyduck and have such stunning results you really need to have a tropical climate. I plan on growing this strain again outdoors next year.

I further submit this grow thread for further consideration:
