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 ligh ...continued

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.

SI RatingNot Listed Vintage: August, 2004

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 and down several times to keep it from getting to close to the 360HPS light during flower. Temps in the cab were 68 degrees F at the resevoir and 78 degrees F at the canopy under the light. When I harvested this plant at 50/50 amber trics, the smell was overwhelming, very strong skunk odor through the whole house and outside as well. I ended up with 5 1/2 oz. of premium bud, as well as 2 oz. of very sticky shake, which made excellent hash. 2 hits of the scissor hash almost knocked me over. The buds were slow cured in glass jars. The buds are sticky and have a strong skunk odor, the smoke tastes strongly of hash. The high is strong, a good blend of an 'up' head high with a pleasing body stone. 4 or 5 hits are plenty even after smoking these buds for a month.
