It's the Haze man.
These phenos that are leaning heavily towards the Haze and resemble equatorial sativas can probably flower forever as they are used to growing under constant 12/12 light. I got the best result from a 11/13 flowering schedule. It would be interesting to know exactly how long a plant like this could flower for when grown in a controlled environment and fed regularly. I bet that you could get a perpetual harvest from the plant for a long time by removing the buds that are ready and allowing her to happily flower on.
People have reported several different phenos of the SSH from Shantibaba, ranging from Skunk/Hazes to NL/Hazes, all of which were ready within 12 weeks or so. I was hoping for the mostly Haze pheno and was lucky enough to get it. It was no easy task to keep the internodes tight and getting tight buds but I succeeded quite well in the end by topping and training the plant for several months before flowering and by keeping the light as close as possible to the buds. That one plant yielded more than all of my other plants put together. I had a few coughs and an Ice plant running at the same time during the first run.
The SSH just kept on flowering forever. By the time the oldest buds were ripe, there were already new flowers forming in other locations and growing out of the older buds as well. The nugs were drenched in THC. I suspect that once the trichome fills up with oil it starts pouring out on top and into the buds because I really did not touch the buds a lot during flowering. They felt oily to the touch and were sticky as hell.
I let her flower for 17+ weeks and then my patience ran out. During that last grow I just let it go crazy as I wanted to see how much weight it could pack on and I could not the there to train it. Imagine my surprise when I came back home and saw that the plant had grown a bud three times the size of my own head
I still have 5 seeds left in the pack but I think I will wait a long time before growing that plant again. Got a lot of strain waiting in the fridge and some own hybrids as well. I've got Jock Horrors in flowering right now and Jack Herer waiting in the fridge. Once I have grown all of these out, I will know the NL/Skunk/Haze hybrids compare to each other. I bet that they are all different but equally interesting plants.
