Strain History(top)

Pot of Gold is a true present for cannabis treasure hunters. The Hindu Kush mother is a long-maintained pure strain from the mountains of Afghanistan. The Skunk #1 father is a Mexican/Colombian/pure Afghani cross. Both parents of this plant come from California to Holland in 1985 with a legendary cannabis enthusiast and breeder.
The Cannabis Seeds have proven a 95%-100% germination rate after just 12 hours in damp paper towels. They produce healthy looking seedlings and are mould and stress resistant. Don’t be concerned if you overfeed these babies – they just suck it all up with no signs of burn whatsoever. The plants grow vigorously, several toppings are required until they reach their full size of approx 3 ft. Compact seedling really explode in outward and upward growth and nearly double in size once put under a usual 12/12 light cycle. Trimming the lower branches will concentrate the buds closer to the light, increasing total yield. The flowering period lasts 8 weeks giving an average yield as high as 125 grams of quality marijuana per plant.
With her strongly Afghan heritage, the buds and leaves are extremely resinous, crying out to be raw material for hashish. Flying Dutchmen advises gardeners to grow full organically on soil, the only method they use. Keep the air flowing and the humidity down. Like all densely-flowered heavy producers, this exceptionally devious plant needs a watchful eye to keep mold attack at bay.
Pot of Gold will reward a gardener’s extra vigilance with a mesmerizing and intense high, a smell like the sweetest hashish, and a taste that is hashy with some fruit. Pot of Gold is often referred to as a happy weed, good for social occasions – some people like to interact after smoking, and some just blow away in the wind!
