Flowering – 50-55 days
The Critical #47 is a 50/50 hybrid whose name is also half-and-half, taking “Critical” from the mother breed and the #47 from the AK father. The mother Critical strain is an Afghani Skunk cross. The father is an AK-47 with genetics from Mexico, Colombia, and India. Critical #47 develops quickly and realizes its complete genetic potential when grown in soil outdoors. Critical Mass and AK-47 improve on Skunk varieties and in their cross, the skunky flavor increases.
This variety grows vigorously and branches prodigiously, forming many extremely serrated leaves. Critical #47 reaches a medium-tall height. Two weeks of vegetative time is sufficient to allow plants to take root, and vegetating much longer may result in oversized stalks. For those interested in clones, Critical #47 is ideal because a great number of cuttings can be taken from its branchy structure.
Positronics recommends pruning after the third week of flowering to better direct the enormous potential that this plant shows. The green flowers give off a strong smell between mango and peach, with hints of vanilla. Organic fertilizers allow this plant to form healthy and flavorful buds.
Critical #47 plants should be supported since the weight of the floral bunches will overpower the slender stalks during growth, this variety does not require large amounts of fertilizer, but turns yellow quickly if it is suffering from an NPK nutritional deficiency, making basic nutrient needs easy to detect. When grown near curious neighbors or in stealth indoor systems, an odor control system such as carbon filtering is a necessity – without some precautions, Critical #47 emits telltale evidence of its presence.
At maturity, this plant reaches an average height of 5 feet (1.5 meters) and delivers yields that range from 1/2 to 1 pound (250-500g) per plant. The Critical #47 buzz is calm with lucid sativa influences and a touch of the munchies. In terms of taste, this variety is a skillful blend of two sweet varieties that deliver a fruity mango-peach flavor infused with vanilla overtones.
