King Congo is a 100% sativa cross between Congo Pointe Noire x Ciskei Highland F1 strains. Generally speaking this is a medium-sized plant that can be grown indoors as well as outdoors.
King Congo produces a couple of pheno-types, one produces round, white buds while the other develops longer, spear-shaped colas. Similarly one type produces a series of branches of equal length growing upwards while others tend to have more of one main stem with a large cola atop. The Ciskei Highland component has had the effect of reducing King Congo's flowering time indoors to between 65 - 75 days. It is also suitable for greenhouse cultivation where its zone of cultavibility will be extended due to the protection it affords. Yields are medium to high.
the scent during flowering is of citrus and other fruits with a degree of spiciness. The more Congo-leaning plants also exude a scent of woody carrots. The thrilling effect is that of a very active, cerebral sativa which is good for creativity and other activities.
About Tropical Seeds
Tropical Seeds was born thanks to their founder, Maxi’s idea of creating a project in which a large number of landraces would be grown, studied and bred.
This hard work was done in some large facilities under something very close to a Tropical climate. Some big green houses in the Canary Islands were packed with incredible genetics from different parts of the Globe, containing pure and psychedelic rich cannabis lines.
After a number of years trying iron out some undesirable traits from these unique lines, the dream was eventually realised and a number of strains were created that were perfect to release to market, under the Tropical Seeds brand.
Tropical Seeds work with a clear philosophy in mind; creating new strain options with more strength, vigour and beauty than anything else available on the market. Their research has led them to conclude that growers are becoming bored of the famous strains that have become overbred and dull. Instead, Tropical Seeds want to introduce something new and exciting as often as possible.
Such is the desire from Tropical Seeds to direct their focus onto new projects, the company have actually discontinued some of their older strains. This is a bold move but one of that has paid off, since the popularity of their more recent strains has won them plenty of plaudits within the industry.
There are a number of strain in the Tropical Seeds library that have gained notoriety, in particular Smooth Smoke, an indica strain with a strong structure and dense resin production and Ciskei Regular, a South African strain that can grow perfectly both indoors and outdoors.
If you are searching for something new, exotic and exciting that will constantly leave you surprised, Tropical Seeds will be a great place to start. All of their fantastic strains are available now at Seedsman.
