Well, I do understand your point and it makes sense. Skunk Special is indeed a bit different from ICE an Pure AK, it has different needs and normally is quite of a hungry strain, mostly looking for Cal-Mag. So yes, is a bit different and also light-wise the Skunk Special is not reflecting the same features of the other 2 strains you already have.
And the ICExICE? Wooooow, that sounds amazing, and it definitely has to be a kick in the brain
I guess you'll be fine with the C99, is not an Outdoor strain such as the Easy Sativa or the Marocs, is never gonna grow so big, even though I am curious to see one some day.
I had quite some issues this last summer because of the Dutch weather...wind, storms, rain almost all the time...my C99 struggled but in the end with some love and care it came up very nice. I will share some pictures soon so that you get an idea.
We keep in touch Ozzie, thanks for the update,
All the best,

i don't mind stretch up to a point as i horizontally train plants when needed or i put plants out side when they are smaller. what i don't want are those massive sativas that take months to flower and grow 5 metres high. the key to growing successfully here are short flowering, relatively compact and can hold out mould for as long as possible...PA was the first plant i could with some success grow during the wet season...i can generally get 1 - 3 more weeks out of it more than other strains before it succumbs to the rot.
the C99 is doing okay...the rain has stopped for now but the winds have kicked up and will stake when i next visit. i have planted it with a ICExICE seedling that again is homemade. don't think i mentioned; i grow in 60 litre bins and can plant 2 plants in each bin if the plants are not large...ideally i want fewer larger plants though but this year had a rough start losing my first crop to a late cyclone so trying to make up ground.
