This weeks Seedstockers blog features Super Skunk Feminized.
This is a classic Skunk selection from Seedstockers, the genetics offer a high THC content alongside heavy yields. Like all good skunk genetics, the plants are easy to grow and cultivate.
Super Skunk can be grown indoors or outdoors. This outdoor plant was grown in central Europe and reached over 2m tall with a heavy yield.
Super Skunk is a hybridisation of Skunk #1 and a potent resinous Afghani Hash Plant. It’s a variety which combines indica and sativa genetics into a balanced and stable hybrid.
Although Skunk varieties have been around for many years the genetics are extremely stable and grow under a wide range of conditions. THC levels are often, and usually, above 20% in good home grown conditions.
One feature of Super Skunk feminized seeds is the strong and penetrating aroma which is a common characteristic of the best Skunk lines.
In this weeks grow, the Super Skunk feminized was germinated indoors and wanted outdoors after a week or two. This is a good way to protect the seedlings when they are young and most vulnerable.
As the pictures show, the Super Skunk lived up to her name and produced a large sized outdoor plant.
Outdoors this variety is usually ready to harvest on, or before mid-October in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, Super Skunk fem is ready to harvest around mid-April.
She prefers a warmer climate, such as central/southern Europe rather than a cooler northern Europe climate. Any growers in northern Europe could consider growing Seed Stockers Frizzy Kush, as a slightly more well adapted cool-climate variety.
Seed Stockers also offer a Super Skunk autoflowering variety. This takes just 100 days to grow from seed to harvest and is recommended for growers with shorter growing seasons.
Super Skunk feminized will grow well outdoors under a range of conditions. But she will perform best when planted in nutrient rich soil.
If local soil conditions are poor/sandy then try adding a couple of sacks of supermarket soil to the grow location before planting the Super Skunk Feminized seed.
Some growers also find heavier harvests are possible when the soil was lightly enriched with some manure or soil nutrient. Nutrients from the garden centre are all that is required to give poor quality soil a significant improvement. Blood, fish and bone nutrients are an easy way to add extra minerals to the soil.
Super Skunk feminized has tough genetics, she is well adapted to growing outdoors. Usually you can see the first signs of female pre flowers in August in the northern hemisphere. During September the blooms start to get heavier and you will notice the trichome resin glands starting to cover the buds. In good conditions you will also see resin on the fan leaves, this is a great variety for those producing hash, cannabis oil, shatter and other cannabis concentrates and extractions.
As Super Skunk feminized approaches harvest you will notice a strong skunky odor. This can often have a fuel-type scent to it with some earthy and occasionally citrus fruity aromas. The buds are very hard and dense, and these are very sticky with resin. Make sure you wear rubber gloves when handling this plant, after harvest the intense skunky smell can remain for many hours.
At harvest, especially in cooler conditions, you may notice some blue and purple hues in the leaves and occasionally the buds too.
Super Skunk is a particularly satisfying smoke. Especially for those that love a rich and full bodied taste which really fills your senses with the genuine Skunk experience. A burning joint of this can be smelled from quite a distance, and the smell will make your friends jealous.
This is a real Skunky stench which will remind you of the 1980’s Dutch coffee shops. You feel an initial euphoric high – a bubbly and energised feeling of well being. You will feel high for several hours, it’s a blissfully comfortable and relaxed high. An old-school feel good effect which reminds you why Skunks became so popular.
It’s a great variety for chilling out, relaxing with friends or simply enjoying a movie in the evening.
Yields are good, as they are on most quality Skunk selections. Super Skunk is a highly branched variety, making it a productive variety for home growers with plenty of bud sites and heavy harvests. Indoors, she takes around 9 weeks to finish blooming under 12/12 light.
This is a variety that suits the indoor or outdoor grower looking for a reliable and easy variety to grow. Yields are well above average, as is the potency.
And for Skunk fans you can look forward to the unmistakeable aroma of original Skunk. This is a great tasting variety with a knock-out high and great yields.
