I purchased some white widow from nirvana, and got a free pack of durban poison x skunk1 from skunkmans seeds. I had much more fun growing the dp x skunk. The colors of the bud was awesome, and made for nice bag appeal, and the smoke was mind racing at first, but then mellows a bit into a nice long high. This bud brought back the head rushes from when i first started smoking.. It gave me that black and white checkerboard effect LMAO.. you know what I'm talking bout right?? The flavor was very sweet, and the flavor alone made it a joy to smoke, and smoke.. The widow was nice but my 10 pack from nirvana was severly male heavy, so I didn't grow out a prize fem or anything..
The dp x skunk took to pruning very well, and for a sativa dominate cross it stayed short, and bushy (skunk genes went a long way in making this plant possible to grow indoor really well).. I just fimmed the top about at the 3rd or 4th node, and she bursted with side growth that caught up to the now 4 new tops. She grew very strong, and the stone/smell/taste was very good.
durban poison x skunk was Not bad at all for a freebie pack. If we all knew how each strain grew before we purhased it there would be lots of good no name strains in our gardens. For all you growers.. Next time around try something new, and different, and report back. I know there are lots of strains I'd never try cause I don't like how the description reads. many long flowering sativas I shy away from, but I know the smoke must be awesome. from now on in each order I'll order something new, and different.. On deck I have northern lights, hashberry, ICE, and ak-48. Thge hashberry was my something different this time around.. (Hashberry from Mandala seeds)
