Indica 75 / Sativa 25
Origins: Afghani x stable New Zealand strain
Flowering: 50-65 days
Harvest: mid September
This delightful indica-dominant hybrid was given its name as a tribute to the highest mountain in New Zealand. At 3754 meters (12,316 feet), Mount Cook dominates the Southern Alps, a mountain range that forms the backbone of the South Island. Mount Cook, known by the Maori people as Aoraki, is a majestic sight amidst one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
This strain’s father is a stabilized New Zealand strain from the Mount Cook vicinity, while her mother was selected from Kiwi seeds best Afghani females. her indica heritage gives Mount Cook wide and deep green leaves, and thick stems and branches ready to support her heavy fruiting. This variety is perfect for sea of green at around 15-20 plants per square meter. She is just as happy in a 10-liter (3-gallon) pot under 18 hours of light, for a slightly longer growing period.
Mount Cook has great potential for the indoor grower. her flowering time is reasonable, and her yields are satisfying, making this variety a great addition to any grow room. her fruit does tend to become rather top heavy in the last two weeks of flowering, so support of some kind is advisable. The breeders recommend using netting that allows for the tops to grow through and be supported. Netting stretches out, so it can be secured at the corners with hooks or a staple gun. Mount Cook’s Afghani heritage shows in her heavy yield of snowy white buds, up to 600 grams per square meter in a sea of green.
Mount Cook is a plant for indica lovers. Her buzz is heavy, almost paralyzing for the first few minutes, then it mellows out to a nice body stone that lasts for a couple of hours. This sweet hashy tasting smoke is best to share with good friends, whether spending the day sunning at the beach, or an afternoon lounging at home. However, it is definitely not one to smoke while behind the wheel of anything!
