  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.

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 wi

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 bit longer and see if I could get a more pleasing yield.

The trichomes cover everything and shimmer in the light, the smell is definitely pleasing but hard to describe or put a finger on. The main intense smells come from the buds actually being broken into bits. Low odor was a major issue with my setup and I'm glad I got a plant that doesn't make the whole house smell like growing pot (already smells like smoked pot).

In veg, she showed sex (pre-flowers) at day 22. Which was great! I donít believe that she is the nute hog like others say. I never over fed her and still there was a slight nute burn (fox farm products).

This was my first grow, I only germinated one Ice seed (along with a few other seeds of other strains). It sprouted and turned out to be female (my only one actually).

First of all let me say this is the best Nirvana's strain I've grown; very good final quality and quite good stability.
I started with 10 seeds bought in Amsterdam , got 4 females. One was given to a friend and now is a wonderful mother plant used to make clones.
