  Breeder's Description - 'Ice'
With Ice we have successfully attempted to bring quality and quantity together. Ice has ancestors of Afghani, a very special Skunk, Northern Light, and Shiva. An intense selection process of thousands of plants was used in finding this special mix. Ice flowers are richly covered in trychomes and have a dense consistency. Buds form along main branches and there is a high flower to leaf ratio. Fantastic for hydro and soil applications. The stone is heavy and the aroma is almost like fuel. Ice is a winner of the 1998 Cannabis Cup.

These are my observations of "Ice" from Nirvana seeds....

Plant size and formation
...500-600 mm high, about the same in width.. large leaves (one resembled more indica) very long stems on the leaves , keeping them from covering any bud sites , very fast grower , fills out to very well shaped

I had two distinct phenotypes:

The first was was more Sativa influenced and was a harder to contain in my small flower space. Would have done much better outside. Flowers were very large but the bottom 1/4 of the flower was strechy.

The second was more Indica influenced that took *very* well t

I grew Ice from clone. IMO this strain was very sensitive to wind and nutes.
My problems with this plant grew so big that I had to cut her down on day 31 of bloom. She still produced a lot of resin and some nice buds.

Ice is one of my faves. It produces so many resin glands that the plant is completely covered. The high is nice and uplifting and will not turn you into a couch potato. Ice is good to smoke before doing something active like biking or hiking. The high creeps up on you after smoking ... you might en ...continued

Started out with 5 seeds, 100% germ rate!

Seedlings were vegged for about 6 weeks and then put into 12/12. In about the 4th or 5th week of Veg there was a strong odor though, so Carbon scrubbers had to be turned on at this point.

They were very easy to maintain in my DWC setup, very happy with the ease that these babies put me through.

After going to 12/12 sex showed in about 12 days, had 2 girls and tossed the other 3 males. Lots of resin on these - started showing up around day 18!

All in all I liked this strain - very "crystally" with resin. Yield was 1.5oz off the first plant and 1oz off number 2, not bad for 150w.

Smoke was smooth - nice relaxing high, kinda heady.

The Grow
This is my second Ice plant grown, the first was male. It was an extremely vigorous strain. I used Sams Choice soil with a 40% mix of perlite. During veg I used Miracle Grow AP 15-30-15. She was vegged with 100 watts of CF's for 5 weeks and 13" at which point she showed female pre fl

I thoroughly enjoyed this plant! I am re-growing it right now. Don't let my numbers fool you, I think I may have messed up somewhere with the hydro solution. It isn't the plant's fault, even though I wish there was no Ruderalis in the strain (causes early flowering), I wanted to veg my plant for a b ...continued

Five seeds germinated out of six, in 3 days, directly in soil.
They stayed for a week under 54w of fluoros and then for other three weeks under 250w of HPS.
All the plants grew very fast with a lot of side branches and just one showed a bit of yellowing; they need quite a lot of nitrogen during

I grew my ICE from seeds (3 plants totally) and vegged them with 18/6 hours of light/dark for 2 weeks
I transplanted on the 13th day and till that day I used 3 x 17W fluoro lamps
The day I transplanted I put them under a 400w HPS Son-T-Agro from Philips and the next day I put them on 12/12 hours
