I'm happy to announce that ErdPurt is finally back again in stock after 2-3 years outside of our catalogue.
We grew this great outdoor indica line a few years ago here in Spain, and i loved the results: a strong structured, outdoor early flowering afghani with big dense flowers of amazing colors, hashy earthy coffee aromas and pleasant relaxed but clear indica effect.
As you may know, the line came from Esbe and was bred mainly outdoors in very northern and cold latitudes.
We tested the line here in Spain from spring to autumn and it worked great but we found hermie tendencies when we tried to reproduce the line from winter to spring with increased photoperiod. We then selected the few non hermie parental plants and we reverse them with STS for open pollinating to produce a feminized generation that was not so sensible to different ambiental conditions.
Then we grew this new feminized generation indoors applying different variables that could induce hermaphroditism: use of flowering stimulators, radical change of photoperiods, moving the plants from indoors to outdoors with increased photoperiod, etc ... most of the plants remained firm, only a few females showed a few unfertile bananas after all the stresses at the end of flowering. A varied group of the firm feminized females were pollinated by a non hermie, early flowering, hashy, colorful and high flower to leaf ratio male to produce the standard generation available.
I hope all this work helps to avoid the previous hermie tendencies of the line under many different ambiental conditions, and still keep the quality and essence of the line as i received it.
Special thanks to Esbe for providing the line, and to all the people that contributed to the line in the past.
