Growing it

Hard

Resistance

Strong

During this grow I came upon quite a few scenarios that were all new, or difficult to zero-in on. Congo has been my biggest effort to date as well as the source of lots of new learnings.

Nutrients

Called-in for a specific challenge; P & K deficiency in mid-flower and 3 days later there were results !

Both played a big part in all my grows. Last dance for Rapid Start, moving to Fish Shit for now…

Used again during the Flush to help clean things-up

Lights

(Not involved with this grow) Why are these 150 Watts being added to this total. Mars was NOT INVOLVED

This light saved the day for the big tents contents. Instant, positive response from the plants

Holding-up as time
Moves on but the zippers n flaking flaps have become the achilles

On many levels this has been a tremendous grow, just for the experience alone. Classic genetics and all this has proven CONGO to be a TRULY beautiful LANDRACE strain of Cannabis. Even the hanging-tent has an ominous earthy floral smell to it. Handling this treasure with care.

Without question I have to grow this strain again soon. This version was so hampered with height control at the beginning I cannot wait to see one go unrestricted outdoors ( or topped indoors )

It’s going to happen again

*The power value for this grow is incorrect. The Mars Hydro did not play a role in this grow and the extra 150watts is not accurate.

Jan 24, Natural Mystic has been dark & hanging for 9 days now and is not finished yet, which is great news! But I did snip a Nugget And the smoke took the top part of my Head-off for 20 - 25 minutes. Which was amazing !!! A beautiful little trip right where I was standing. Then, when things settled I shovelled snow for an hour. So the Natural Mystic has already lived-up to its name Reeferman Genetics.

Nice Work !

Thanks for the Strain, this one goes outside this Summer !!

Jan 25th
- today began with snapping branches on day 10 of the Natural Mystic harvest. And I finished with 20% of the chopped branches n buds as finished Buds And is it ever an amazing Herb. Cure has begun in the jar, photos arrive later with a little daylight.

26th
- Congo is just hanging, and she smells of moisture in the air today, which is great on day 4, out with that moisture. Tent Air-flow is positive, indirect and gentle. 18.5c and back to 50%rh
- fan leaves stripped tonight, they have done their job
- buds seem a little dry, on the brittle side. Tried a few branches, all bend quietly

Smoke review

The review got erased, sorry about that. This smoke simply puts you on a different level, regardless of how many Congo phenotypes are involved. Truly a unique plant and an amazing pot plain and simple. As you become quickly and VERY casually blasted, there is a methodical and level-headed approach to all that you do. Zero hesitation to most things, and definitely you can sit still, no anxiety, obvious dry-eyes, none of that. And at all times you are aware it is a special kind of buzz, maybe I had best crank another one-up to see where this one goes.

Its a wonderful experience, growing this landrace Congo. And when the time comes to smoke it, you will be on the next level. Looking to the next opportunity to grow it again.

I am, this Summer; 2022. I have one seed left, maybe the outdoors will rain Congo seeds on me...

Cheers Fellow GROWERS !!!

Grow Questions
1Right_Angle week 17 started grow question 1 year ago
Has a Male ruined this Grow
Has the Male plant found a month ago, ruined the rest of the Tents plants?
Since the Green Mountain Grape was found to be a male, the entire tent has gone into Pause, without Herms or other obvious signs showing up.
The plant was removed immediately but the tent is lagging

hey there, looks like it's either an unstable genetics problem or that these simply take really really long in flower. cant imagine it being for a different reason

26 weeks is half a year. What a run it was!! Bravo to your resilience and for the results. Great report too.

@sativaman,omg I tried not to think of that time-frame. Definitely could have extended it, but it had had enough ie: really slow water uptake
Thanks for riding Shotgun on this trip. Tiny tent had a skunky attitude earlier. See how this floral bouquet adds to it.
Cheers

Just finished reading your harvest report after vaping some of my own congo. I must say I think the quality of your congo is higher than mine turned out & your mystic looks fantastic!

@wrongleverkronk, thanks a zillion for the comment. I’m curious as hell myself, gonna fix that very shortly!
Natural Mystic, zero hesitation Brother. Maybe the most solid impact-smoke in the last year.
I want to
Make a deodorant just like it lol
