Earlier this year I gave a friend some Flo cuttings, and a couple of months ago he returned the favour, giving me his only clone of a Jamaican plant he grew outdoors this summer in the UK. I saw it growing, and it's a tall, columnar plant, with minimal side-branching, and what branching there is tends to be heavier at the top - the opposite of a christmas-tree sativa. It features big, mostly forward-pointing, long-fingered leaves, but nothing like as slim-fingered as say a Thai or Malawi. It's very similar in structure to my Flos - tall, spear-shaped buds and reluctant to branch, which makes me think there could be a match made in heaven there...pollen on standby!
The seeds were scored from a bud he smoked there - I should say this wasn't bought on the street, but supplied by a relative by marriage, so I'm hoping it'll be one of the better local phenos. Unfortunately I didn't get to smoke any of my friend's plant, although he assures me it's great, and at the stimulant end of the spectrum (phew) and he gave me the clone as he knew I'd put it to better use than he would.
The resin smelled on the adult preflowers is very fruity spice/peppery, similar to White Widow, although I'm praying that it's not a Dutch import that was grown out there, but the real deal.
I've never grown Jamaican before, and have zero experience with them - has anyone grown anything like this before? Also, I plan to grow this indoors, rather than outdoors - I'm topping it a lot to get it as bushy as possible, and will put it into flower after Christmas.
Anyone got any thoughts on this, I'd love to hear them. Thanks.
