  Breeder's Description - 'Skunk #1'
Skunk 1 is used as a base for many of the new world strains many of which are found here in our broad selection. Skunk 1 has a heritage of Afghani, Mexican gold and Colombian gold.

Very easy to grow. Very hardy plant. It had every leaf picked off by a deer and somehow regrew and yielded 4+oz. Decent smoke. Could have been better but most of the problems were due to grower error. These come as freebies from Gypsy, and a pretty easy grow... except they took a bit longer to matur ...continued

I love this plant. Overall I would have to say it is one of the best strains I have ever grown. She is stable and able to withstand massive amounts of abuse. She grows fat thick buds with great cal/leaf ratio. I have intentionally tried to cut clones in the most screwed up bound to fail manner and t ...continued

I've got one Skunk #1 female in my mum area, a clone of the first plant I ever grew. However, she's a beauty! Very vigorous and rapid growth in vegging, good trichome production in flowering, and pretty good smoke overall.

Sativa-dominant in appearance, and duration of flowering, but definitely n

From four Skunk #1 seeds I ended up with one female plant.
I vegged the remaining female for 110 days and flowered her for 60.

This plant had some pH imbalance late in vege and also during flowering but she pulled through and gave me around 1.5 ounces of hard nuggets. I would recommend this stra

This was my third grow and first very successful grow.

I put three seeds in papertowels and all three germinated within two/three days. All three ended up being female. They were a little sensitive to ferts in their early stages but adjusted very nicely. The only problem I had with these girls

The Skunk #1 was an easy undemanding plant to grow, and would be great for a beginning grower. There was some odor, but not as bad as I had expected.
The Sk#1 was not picky about fertilizers or anything else.
There was moderate stretch in flowering, but not bad for a mostly Sativa strain.

I enjoyed the grow from start to finish. This plant took a lot of stress and was very giving. It clones very easily. The plant stays nice and healthy under all sorts of conditions. Didn't stretch much. The Sk#1 had medium size nuggets. This strain is a good beginner strain but really not much of a k ...continued

I germinated 10 seeds of the skunk #1s from Nirvana. All 10 sprouted and grew healthy. Out of the 10 I got 5 females but one looked weak so I killed it. The 4 skunk #1s were grown under 250 watts of flouros in the veg cycle until about a foot tall. I put 3 of the 4 under the 400 watt MH agrosun light with 118 watts of side lighting from flouros.

The other one I left with a clone from my last grow (Durban poison) under the flouros. They grew to about 2 and ft. tall with nicely developed lower colas as well as a beefy main cola. I broke the main stem pretty badly of one of the skunk#1s. I duct taped it and supported it and it recovered but stayed shorter than the others. I planed on flushing them for 2 weeks before harvest but stopped feeding too early and flushed for about 4 weeks. I also stopped watering a few days before harvest as well. I harvested when most of the trichomes were cloudy, not many amber. The one skunk#1 I left under complete flouros got very purpley due to the low temps at night.

Big thanks to Gypsy and seeds direct, for 20$ Id be happy with one good female getting at least an ounce or two. That 20 bucks I spent ended me up with over 6 ounces. The smoke is smooth and very relaxing while still social. I can't get enough with my aromazap vaporizer I just keep packing more and more bowls.

My grow space is a closet with mylar for reflection. My lighting is a 400 watt MH agrosun bulb and additional flouros for side lighting (118 watts) The bulb I use is a special MH that has more red spectrum than most so it is good for veg and budding. They were watered every other day or so and fertilized twice a week. I use organic nutrients to feed them. Including earth juice, guano, worm castings, bone meal, blood meal, and seaweed. Fan for ventilation and regular opening of the space.

I harvested this plant at day 62 of flower. The buds were slow cured for 2 months. It has a very strong skunk smell. The buds are sticky and resonous, with golden/red hairs, a classic skunk look. The buzz is strong and nicely balanced. The plant was grown under 168w CFL and 70w HPS in a cabinet ...continued

Strong and steady as she goes, this is undoubtedly the yard stick by which all strains can be measured. Like text book instructions these Nirvana Skunk 1# plants grew strong, fast and robust...manicured and cloned just like the instructions on the box and hit their due date of 56 ahead of schedule.

I started this grow with (2) Skunk #1 seeds from Nirvana, one turned out to be male, a standard 50/50 mix. The price for the seeds was very reasonable and delivery was prompt. The plant was grown in a 5Gal DWC hydro system with BC nutrients, in a stealth grow cabinet. I had to tie the plant back ...continued
