Durban Poison x Red God

Mother: Strain Information

Durban Poison is a pure IBL Sativa named after its city of origin: Durban, South Africa. Despite its name, it is a delightful strain that gives the user energy, joy, and creativity. The beautifully swollen buds give off a highly complex, unique aroma of spicy, earthy sassafras with piney and citrusy overtones that leave a distinct impression in my memory that I'd recognize anywhere. When smoked, the air is filled with the sweet, pungent aroma of citrusy grapefruit, with a taste that matches. Durban Poison is especially known for its huge resin-filled glands and its purple-topped, spear-shaped buds and curly, dark green bud leaves.

This Durban Poison specimen became the mother plant for this cross due to its excellent resistance to pests and diseases, its surprising tolerance of extreme temperatures (>90 and <50 degrees F), and its impressive resilience, always showing speedy, vigorous recovery from injury and training. I hope to use this cross to mitigate the semi-weak stems and excessive asymmetrical branching typical of Durban Poison.

Male: Strain Information

Red God is an excellent 50/50 Hybrid strain from Burning River Genetics, which took their God Bud clone and hit it with an old-school Mexican Red Hair Sativa male, resulting in a solid winner that grows well indoors and outdoors. This strain combines the insane potency from its Indic4 heritage with the massive height and yield of a stretchy Sativa to produce genetically excellent offspring that exhibit the best traits of both worlds. Females are said to produce large, high-potency, and frosty colas with highly symmetric branching.

I've noticed Red God males grow both tall and bushy with HUGE fan leaves, which do a great job protecting the pollen sacs from wind and rain. Pollen falls directly onto the huge fan leaves below once sacs open, which then gently fan up and down with the breeze on their strong petioles to spread pollen from all branches in all directions. I chose the male for this cross for a few different reasons, mostly related to creating a variety of offspring qualities to select from when crossed with Durban Poison.

  1. height: tall-ish
  2. stem: perfectly straight, very thick/sturdy, easy to bend yet difficult to break
  3. nodes spaced evenly and very little branching, virtually no asymmetries (when grown from seed)
  4. genetic excellence: extremely pungent odor from rubbing stem, efficient pollen distribution capabilities
  5. highly adaptable - zero nutrient issues/imbalances, vivid dark green foliage from start to finish, unbreakable petioles and branches (not literally), no problems from frequent shifts in environment (nursery-->closet-->basement-->closet-->attic bedroom-->outdoors)

All orders of 5+ seeds (mix and match if you desire) include free shipping via USPS First Class mail (delivers in 1-3 business days). For orders of 1-4 seeds First Class Mail shipping is $5. If you'd prefer Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express, simply pay the difference in shipping and I'd be happy to accommodate your preference. I will ship your order within 24 hours on any day of the week, but note that Sundays and holidays may result in slightly longer shipping times.

You'll receive a plastic vial with desiccant beads and cotton, which are there to absorb excess moisture and prevent the seeds from germinating; do not remove the cotton and directly mix in the orange beads with your seeds. According to the manufacturer, doing so could result in poor germination rates, although I've never personally had such a problem.
