After seeing Vanilla Kush as the cannabis cup winner 2009, i thought i have to grow this ! So thats what im doing.
Type : Mostly indica
Characteristics : Fragrant and potent
"Vanilla Kush is an incredible new Indica-dominant strain and is one of the most fragrant, full-flavoured and potent plants that Barneys Farm have ever offered. Vanilla Kush genetics come from Kashmir and Afghan. The intense aromas from large, dense colas –heavily speckled with red and gold trichromes – bring to mind wild vanilla and lavender, accented with lemon and orange peel. Once lit, the floral and herbal aromas become more concentrated and the smoke offers sweet flavours. Vanilla Kush grows to about 55- 60cm in height indoors and takes her cannabis seeds 60-65 days to flower. Outdoor harvest time is the end of September. Her THC is strong of 22%. The strong, long lasting high allows the mind to relax and eases muscle tension."
The seed is feminised from barneys seeds; which people give mixed reviews. I will also be growing this plant with an LST technique, pictured below. Im doing this technique because im using CFL's which have really bad penereation, this technique will help me get an even light coverage over the whole plant.
I will be using the same setup as my last grow apart from soil and pot. If you didnt see my last grow have a look here :
WSS, first grow(cfl), come watch !!
For Veg i will be using a 300 watt Blue spec Cfl and a 250 watt cfl red spec for flowering.
The seed wont be germinated for a couple of days as im still preparing my grow area.
Watch it go from seed to bud !
