Hi homerdog. I haven't grown it yet (beans are still in the mail atm), but fyi..
Here's what was written about JW's Apollo 11 in the OG Strainguide. In case it helps. Peace.
"'Apollo 11 F2' from Joey Weed
Breeder's Description - 'Apollo 11 F2'
These are F2 seeds made from the best females and males of Apollo 11. The Brothers Grimm are the originators of this strain and it has gotten a lot of good reviews over the years. It has a better yield than C99 with a more mellow giggly type of high. Here is what is said about Apollo 11.
This indoor hybrid has a high calyx/leaf ratio & finishes flowering in 7 weeks or less. Our big-yielding, lemon-scented female clone named "Genius" because of her CLEAR, energetic, thought-provoking high was crossed with a robust Cinderella 99 male to create Apollo Eleven.

I germed 2 F2's from Joey Weed. One popped the suface but never grew and died. Luckily the other was a female. This Apollo grew vertical very fast yet was also very bushy. This would be a great SCRoG strain.
I topped her at 10 in., flowered her at 15 in. She finished just short of 3ft. in 7 weeks. The stems were very weak making supporting mandatory. Dense buds w/ thick bright orange hairs. Resin production was outstanding.
Yield was not huge but 1.2 oz of one plant is good enough for this kind of quality. The high is tremendous. Mostly in the head but if you smoke enough you will have to sit down. I can't wait to grow this stain again. I am so impressed I will be trying other Bros. Grimm genetics in the future.
