Congo is a landrace from Central Africa that we brought with us from our trips to Africa. We feminized the genetic over 2 generations and selected the best plants over a long time to create this typical original stable Congo strain. Congo comes from the tropical rainforest near the equator and grow there throughout the year. She is a very high-growing Sativa with a huge Headbud and few side branches. She has, due to their regions of origin with a very humid and muggy air, a very strong mold resistance and is not prone to parasite infestation.
Congo creates a long-lasting cerebral high and provides an aura of euphoria and happiness that is sure to leave a smile on your face.
The aroma of the Congo is very fresh, lemony and it has a fruity taste of wild strawberries. This hard hitting Sativa provides an energetic high up to 4 hours and has a THC content of 18%. This strain has rather thin, green leaves and produces a good amount of dark green or purple coloured, dense buds packed with crystals. She has a great flower to leave ratio and delivers highest quality buds with an unmatched and breathtaking fruity aroma.
Congo is suitable for Indoor growing but can equally be cultivated outdoors if she gets enough sunlight. The flowering time is relatively short for a pure sativa with 10-12 weeks. Outdoors she can be harvested in mid-October. During the flowering phase phosphorus and potassium should be increased gradually from the 3rd week of flowering. Congo provides a reliable income of 500-550g per square meter indoors, and outdoors even 750g or more per plant.
When you grow Congo Seeds indoors you will need to trim the plants and use trellinets to keep the growth in height under control. The plants grow tall.
