    Australian (ABC), Duck Web & Reindeer Syrup

    My name is Miasa and I’m addicted to popping seeds... So, by the love of Shiva I ended up tracking down the first strain I grew from bagseed which is the Duck Web. This variety is reportedly from the Kashmir region, traveled to Hawaii and then to Australia. It is an extremely consistent genetic, producing webbed leaves and pink/fuchsia pistils. Not a high resin variety, subtlety gaining rose and banana peel aromas.

    Reindeer Syrup

    The Reindeer Syrup is a cross of a Siberian Landrace Ruderalis to a cutting of 707 Headband by FlyingLion genetics. I heard Jeff Lowenfels on YouTube talking about autoflowers and since I had never grown them out I thought I’d give it a go. I looked through my seeds and found the Reindeer Syrup and popped four. 3 males and one female. The male I kept was displaying Variegation or Chimerism (is that a word? Haha). I bottled up a ton of the pollen, crossed the female for a more IBL as well as to the Duck Web to get a white flower with pink/fuchsia pistils.

      Australian or ABC

      I’m so honored and privileged to grow this plant! There are a few theories around the origins of this drastically different cannabis variety. Some believe it to be brought with the aboriginal peoples. The following is from Medicinal Genomics website:
      According to John McPartland (pers. commun., 2015)- “Some Cannabis in Australia has a very unique provenance. William Roxburgh, a British botanist stationed in Calcutta, sent germplasm from India to Australia in 1802. More Indian seed was sent in 1803. Colonists grew it in the Singleton district of the Hunter Valley into the 1820s. It no doubt gave rise to a huge patch of feral Cannabis that covered 30 km2 (12 mi2) grew along the flood plain of the Hunter River 160 km (100 mi) north of Sydney. The feral hemp was famously psychoactive.

      Beginning in the 1860s, imported camels and camel drivers helped explore and settle Australia’s outback. The cameleers were Muslims and Sikhs from present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan. Perhaps 3000 cameleers lived in south-central Australia. They smoked from “narghiles,” and ate “marjoms” (Stevens 1989). The cameleers may have grown Cannabis (Rainford 2009).“

          There is another example of unusual botanical expression in australia that shares many similarities in regards to unique growth habits found in ABC

          That is the australian finger lime, it grows as a small underbrush shrub rather than a tree and has many unique oils being found in it no where else in other citrus trees. It is believed to have migrated to australia from elsewhere in the world.

          What i like to enjoy about the similarities between them for me is that due to the largely isolated nature that is australia, plant expressions can evolve in a unique way over time. Who knows if ABC always resided in australia or if it was brought there from elsewhere.

          This is something to be appreciated even if for nothing other than their novelty.

          This is in no way a declaration of fact just something i like to think about and when you consider what ABC and australian finger limes have in common, the two most prominent features being short stout underbrush growth habit and uncommin growth habits in regards to leaf shape for the ABC and fruit shape among other things for the australian finger lime.

          anyways i hope you had a nice read
          have a nice day

            Really cool. Awesome siberian autoflower cross ducksfoot and abc.
            In the equation, p2 represents the frequency of the homozygous genotype AA, q2 represents the frequency of the homozygous genotype aa, and 2pq represents the frequency of the heterozygous genotype Aa. In addition, the sum of the allele frequencies for all the alleles at the locus must be 1, so p + q = 1.

                  Grew Duckfoot in the rainforest in upper Puna years ago. It looked identical. Some Plants got fairly tall (around 8 feet). The buds were tight but not huge. The plant was surprisingly mold and mildew resistant (not always mold proof). The environment was very wet and plants were placed between large Ohi'a trees (made it harder for Green Harvest). The high was more Sativa than Indica. Not super strong but still good quality. The hairs were short, thick, dense and often had a pinkish/purplish hue. The buds developed in a tightly packed pattern without much leaf. Gave it up because the quality of some of the other sativas/mix was better.

                    Australia sure does have some exotics seen nowhere else.

                    Even their mice are huge. Aka Kangaroos.

                    Platypus would be nice.

                      Have grown USC's duck, which is presumably from Wally's old stock, but taken a few generations further. Also had the opportunity to grow out seeds from Wally from a newer version he had (several years ago).

                      The duck is a great plant, even without the webbed trait. She is one of the most forgiving plants I've ever grown and never disappoints. Just a nice fruity/funky 12 week sativa that provides a balanced, happy high.

                        Thank you for sharing! I have heard about the Australian Finger Lime but didn’t know that much about it. Really cool to see how nature makes unique pockets of beauty all over the world

                            Thank you for sharing your growing experience with the Duck Web. I agree it’s not something I’d grow for smoking but it sure is beautiful and takes me back to my first year growing Ganja. Enjoy those Sativas

                              I can’t say that I have... there was a cut of a webbed leaf strain sold at dispensaries in the north bay labeled as Ducks Foot. It had a really green flower with an extremely piney smell and flavor. Reminded me of a Durban or Nepalese. Very focused up high too. Thanks for sharing your experience with that strain
