90% (9/10) germination rate after 48 hours,,,

They were started in a make-shift setup under 125W CFL lighting,,,

Ended up with 4 females from the 9 plants and completed growing 3 of those.
They were topped above the 2nd node and moved under T5 lighting.
They were transplanted into 20 litre air-pots 5 days after topping,,,

After about 2 weeks under T5's they were put into flower under 1kw MH for first couple of weeks then 1kw HPS until harvest,,,

My favourite is CR3 which has a savoury aroma, kinda like sour cream (which is commonly described by others) but also has a sweet fermenting fruit undertone to it.
The CR5 is very different and has a distinct leathery aroma.
The effects from all are fairly strong stoney/relaxing with no hint of anxiety.
Yield was quite low from all plants but reckon a moderate yield can be achieved when dialed in from cuts.


Thanks for looking in :D

Thank you both for the comments :D

You should be satisfied with this strain I reckon,,,


I never found any blatant chocolate aroma phenos but maybe there's a slight bitter dark choc undertone to 2 of my phenos. Very slight though.

I kept CR3 and have her in flower again atm,,,


Just to finish off here's a couple of shots of CR3 after a couple of month cure. :pns:
