....Really I wish I could give a 10
- Congo have a lot of variation in it's genes. Got 2 different giant green sativa, a dwarf, and 2 purple absolute different plant. It do not behave like a F1.

- It did not take long after iniating bloom for the 2 purple plants to show N toxicity despite grown in organic soil. Also had some mutation on leaves and bananas (hermie) on plant 2.
They are sensitive and picky ladies that behave differently.

- On top of that had to chop early because botrytis was found on 2 plants. After bringing them for manicure, only plant 1 felt like it needed more time. Still, it was supposed to be Highly resistant to mold and botrytis.

but!,
Their is ALWAYS 2 sides on a medal:

- All 5 phenos looks killer. Contacted by e-mail ACE explained the F1 cross: it would be an IBL of PCK and Bangi Congo x Congo 3. ACE did not told more about the IBL (maybe it needed more breeding to be stabilised) Gotta give credit for responding.

- Despite some N toxicity, taste, trichome and resin production were not affected. And despite a few male flower that showed up once they were pinched the plant did not pushed a single other one!!

- About botrytis; I've packed my tent from wall to wall, I knew plant 2 was done and dying, she was the first plant to be affected, gotta take a part of the responsibility.... Plus my 4x4 only had one single 4inch fan to move the air between plants.

After all, even if I rated it as Hard to grow, to be honest I was really busy all along the flowering cycle. Basically all I did was pour down water twice a week and keep them staked. Could have been a total different story if I did not saw the bananas and the bud rot just in time....Their different sizes and feeding needs is not for beginners.
As I take some blame for the bud rot I cannot say that resistance is weak. Neutral is the the most objective I can put.

Normal
It's surely a great strain but I was not able to give her the correct treatment. A lot of deficiency appeared along the grow, first time trying coco + 100% organic was not easy for me and the yield and quality were clearly affected.

None the less :

- Still gave 120g of bud
- Great taste and smell : berry/tropical/flowery/sweet syrup, hint of citrus here and there and it's only 2 week of curing.
- Effect : mainly head high, not as active and euphoric as I was expecting but it still pretty cheers you up for the first 2 hours and then you feel relaxed and you can sleep well.
- Was very resistant to my bad treatments.

I can only imagine that with a great grow this strain would be insanely great.

ELECTRIC !!!
Right after first hit,yes only first hit,I feel electric in my veins,going up to my head,pressing on sides,making my eyes smaller,giving infinite energy and happiness.Wow,Congo is real fire! Buds smell incredibly berry/grapes and tropical with flowery details just like Ace Seeds talk about.I grew some other strains including "berry" in their name,none of them smelled berry.But this one is true berries,trust me.Calyxes are purple with a lot of trichomes on them which make it catchier.
It doesn't give me insomnia but it's definitely a day time smoke,because you need to enjoy it's happiness.Ladies and gentleman,this is not exaggerating,I FUCKING LOVE THIS STRAIN!
High is CLEAN,ENERGETIC AND POSITIVE.Taste is INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS,you get that tropical wild berries & grapes taste every time you hit the joint.Bullet-like buds are pretty compact for a sativa.

If you love exotic,beautiful looking,tasteful strains ; CONGO is exactly what you are searching for.It's powerful but clean,delicious but not regular and SATIVA BUT PURPLE !!!

Ace Seeds definitely created a masterpiece for marijuana industry.There is a little bit of Pakistan Chitral Kush in it as they say to keep the height and flowering period shorter.I think arome and colors are coming from that Chitral Kush.

But you know what? Congolese people know what they are doing :sunglasses: You can't get your ass up while getting chased by a lion on that wild lands,if you smoke indica .This smoke is really energetic and clean,no lions can get you when you are on it :)))
Beautiful,beautiful and beautiful.Masterpiece.Ace Seeds,thank you for making Congo.I think I'll only grow this one in my further grows.I'm a sativa guy .This is more original,better than any other hybrids and so called sativas on market.Congo has absolutely everything I want from a sativa.

Connoisseurs,this one is for you.Grow Congo or find some in your area.You won't regret,trust me :)
