We inherited this elite female Durban clone from a group of underground growers last year and proceeded to flower a bunch of them for research. We were blown away by the aromas given off by the flowers – pure black licorice. Also impressive was the plant’s sturdy structure and minimal stretch during flowering – clearly not a Sativa-dominant morphology. After 75 days of flowering, we harvested loads of intoxicatingly fragrant, uber-dense flowers, with resin glands sparkling like crushed diamonds sprinkled all over them. And even a short clone of only 18 inches, yielded over an ounce of primo dried buds.
Naturally we wanted to see what would happen if we crossed this Durban and our Cinderella 99. Our results shocked us a bit because of the increased size of the hybrid plants, and their phenomenal growth rate. This is a classic example of hybrid vigor affecting the offspring. These plants grow big, long “donkey-dick” colas that produce stony, terpene-rich, resin-encrusted buds that will impress even the fussiest connoisseur.
As is often the case when C99 is used to hybridize another strain – the flowering time is reduced and the flavors/aromas shift to a more fruity/floral effect. The high from these Durban C99 hybrids is also shifted by the C99 influence, becoming more energetic, intensely psychoactive and creativity-inducing. A smoke well suited to musicians and artists.
