AK-48 as Nirvana now call it was a cinch to grow - a hungry grower which was fast and sturdy. I got 1/2oz from each plant which was in a 1.5 ltr pot (lots of bud for a pot that size). It had a low leaf-to-calyx ratio and took no time to trim. A good commercial and head stasher!

Didn't taste very good compared to Northern Lights but potency damn, it's definitely the most potent buds I have grown or smoked. Let it veg for 6-7-8 weeks it gets way more potent, I even got a contact high from it which I never do when I wasn't smoking. It is so potent it makes you slobber and fee ...continued

The plants grew very fast, with dark green leaves and a more Indica shape. This strain produces much resin, trim leaves are very resinous, so its a very good bubblehash producer. The yield is also very good, and manicuring takes little time. I mixed cow and chicken manure, with worm castings to the ...continued

I got this strain because I wanted the "one hit wonder". I knew it wouldn't get me stoned after just a hit, but I want to see the strain that can do that to me.


I germed 4 seeds, and they all sprouted.
They grew uniformly and fast, they were a bit different tho, some were more sativa t

After a 100% germination I started preparing myself for the worst - lots of good pot!

Grew very well during veg, got 4/6 female which showed sex in the 3rd week of veg. Only problem I had was a magnesium deficiency which was corrected with Epsom Salts. These plants are very hungry growers through

Hey people, this grow took place one year ago, its just that I never had the guts to do a real report, well there it goes.

When I got these seeds from a friend they were still called AK-47, I believe it is the same strain as today, or at least similar.

Anyways, we grew them in the bush formats

All seeds cracked in 24 hours, very fast germ rate, popped through the soil after 1 day, seedlings spent 2 weeks under fluoros, then under the 400w MH.

I vegged them for 10 weeks total, tying them down so all the side branches become like the main stem for more yield, as I haven't got much height

Very quick growing plants. Germinated 5 seeds, 1 didnt crack, 2m and 2f. The two females were similar looking plants. There wasnt a whole lot of stretch. Despite this being an indica they will get huge if you want them to. Ive got clones going in a SOG right now and they are looking great.

This was a very easy plant to start. It sprouted in 48 hours and grew fast. Of 5 seeds started 2 were male and 3 were female. I grew them out in HydroFarm/DWC buckets with Flora Nova nutes and Floralicous. Of the 3 female I killed one when a jug of water fell on her, and pulled one up after a couple weeks of veg because it did not seem right. The last female grew pretty fast and branched a lot on her own. I let her veg for 6 weeks-she got fairly large in that time. At 6 weeks I put her in the flower closet that has 1 400 watt HPS one 150 watt HPS and one 175 watt MH. She stretched to about 3x the size she started and after about 2 weeks I had to tie down the top buds. I continued to use the veg nutes for the first 2 weeks of flower then did a 8 hour flush with Florakleen before switching to Floranova Bloom. The buds grew fast and dense and were covered in trichs within 3 weeks-even the sugar leaves were covered in frost. She was a nute hog, making it up to 1 tbsp of Floranova/gallon of water.
All in all it was a very easy grow until the last 3 weeks when we were hit By a hurricane and without power for 10 days. My neighbor let me use his generator for the light but without A/C there was a slight bit of bud rot from the humidity and spider mites managed to get in from outside. I did manage to hold down the mite population until harvest.
She finished at 55 days(or at least I decided it was a good idea to cut her to avoid more bud rot).She produced a very large amount of very dense sticky bud. It was about 4 lbs wet but trimmed. After the dry and 3 weeks cure I wound up with 15.4 oz's of very sticky very sweet buds. Overall there was about 2 oz's of small fluffy buds and the rest was very large buds. The top bud weighed in at 2.5 oz's.
After the cure the bud took on a cherry smell and had a cherry Ludens taste to it. The stone was not as strong as I expected it to be ,but was very nice just the same. I would rate this in the top 5 for ease, looks and potency.

From seed:
I have kept the seeds in a fridge for about 2 years, and almost 100% germination.
They turn out great when planted, and grow long sativa like leaves, just make sure to put the light close so they dont stretch really bad at first.
These plants get really tall, and uniform growth
