Cinderella 99 x Panama Red
Origins: Cinderella 99 x Panama Red
Flowering: 70 days
Harvest: mid October
The name of this variety leads you right to the parentage. The mother, Panama Red, is a pure sativa strain from South America. The father, Cinderella 99, is a fast maturing, resiny sativa strain originating with the Brothers Grimm in Holland. Cindy 99 is a cross from a Jack Herer bag seed that was “cubed” to create Cinderella 99.
For this cross, Wally Duck has bred Cinderella 99 specifically for the taste. He discovered among several grows that some Cindy 99s had an increased pineapple flavor. In the fifth cross of these pineapple types, he added the Panama Red to produce this very resiny, pineapple-smelling plant. In addition to flavor, the Cindy father was selected for fast maturation and high resin content, while the Panama Red mother was chosen for the trippy, euphoric effects. Together, these two sativa strains yield a pure sativa whose high and taste really shines when grown in an acclimated indoor climate.
Wally Duck prefers to grow cannabis outside in his tropics location, which is the favored home for pure sativas. C99 x PR was happy to finish on sub-equatorial days (no longer than 13 hours) without signs of revegging. Outdoors, sativas need a climate that won’t frost too early in the season. This variety is right at home in the heat – in an outdoors test patch, C99 x PR was dealt a very steamy season and showed no signs of trouble, also tolerating some gaps in watering. Because of its hardiness and willingness to put up with some neglect and abuse, this plant is suitable for a beginning outdoor gardener who is in the 40 degree latitude region.
Indoors, this variety is more suitable for a grower who has a little experience. Optimum indoor ripeness takes 70 days from forcing at a 12/12 cycle. C99 x PR does well in a screen of green (SCROG), where branches can be trained for maximum yield. A soil medium adds depth to this strain’s flavor, but she has also done well in hydro methods.
Given a chance, this plant can get quite large, with several long main colas. With a minimum vegetative time, outdoor plants reach 5 feet and yield between 4 and 8 ounces per plant. Indoors with minimum vegetative times, the plants yield around 1 ounce each, which increases if they are vegged longer and allowed ample room for the subsequent increase in size.
Whe allowed to progress without much manipulation or pruning, this plant becomes more round and bushlike than the classic marijuana profile. C99 x PR buds are compact and stacked, but not super chunky. Outdoors they look like foxtails, thick and long, surrounded by some typically slender sativa foliage. This strain tastes like pineapple, with a pleasant spiciness and a hint of pepper in the exhale. The high is filled with the sweet effects of sativa. The high comes on fast – a talkative, awake, idea-liberating buzz with a trippy edge. Once your thoughts are tingling and fully stimulated, C99 x PR is good for lengthy chats with your favorite conversation partners. It may be good for bouncing around some interesting ideas, but focused work or planning is best saved for later.
