Old Congo is a pure sativa poly-hybrid cannabis strain that exploits 4 different pure sativa strains including Congo Pointe Noire and OT Haze. This plant is a "must grow" strain for outdoor growers who love pure sativa strains. Fantastic strain for a hot, warm or mild climate as long as the autumn remains frost-free long enough for the 90 day flowering phase to complete its cycle. Plants grow very tall with loads of side-branches on which the light and airy buds develop.
If grown indoors Tropical Seeds recommend that both seedlings and cuttings be put straight into a 12/12 light regime in order to reduce stretching. Yields are medium on account of the lightness of the buds but the quality is simply sensational. Buds carry the aromas of noble woods, leather with grape and kiwi fruit notes. The effect is something else - the more you smoke the higher you become. Very uplifting and energetic high, without heaviness in the body, the mind and thoughts go into overdrive and plenty of work will get done. Don't smoke in the evening if you want an early night!

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.
