This weeks grow review features Durban Poison which was grown outdoors in soil by ‘Framer Brett’. The grow took place in his back yard and it was grown in a metal frame to support the plant and to allow some LST (low stress training). The LST used string to tie down the tallest branches to keep them below the level of the garden fence.
Durban Poison is a sativa dominant variety, she was found in South Africa during the 1970’s and imported back to Holland. The variety quickly became one of the better known early THC rich cannabis varieties with a feel-good creative and energetic ‘up’ high which has an excellent anti-anxiety effect.
In this weeks grow, Framer Brett placed the Durban Poison in a sunny area of his back garden and grew the plant in his normal garden soil. The plant grew steadily, producing plenty of side branches which helped contribute to a good sized harvest. It’s also a tough variety, she tolerates LST well. The main stem had to be bent over and tied down to stop the plant growing taller than the garden fence. As harvest approached it was clear that the Durban Poison would deliver an XL harvest with the blooms swelling steadily in the autumn sunshine.
Indoors, Durban Poison takes around 8-9 weeks of flowering and can produce quite a strong aroma towards the end of bloom – ensure you have a good quality carbon filter. Outdoors, in the northern hemisphere, the buds start to swell during September and begin to reach maturity around early October. Yields can be heavy, these genetics are well know for producing above-average harvests. The main reasons people grow Durban Poison outdoors is for the excellent potency levels and the unusually easy, maintenance-free growing. First time growers will love this variety. Durban Poison is also grown by many cannabis concentrate producers of shatter, BHO, cannabis oil etc.
Durban Poison is equally suited to indoor and outdoor cannabis growers. She can be grown outdoors in northern Europe and is usually ready to harvest around the start of October. In the southern hemisphere she is ready to harvest around the start of April
Farmer Brett gave the following summary: “She was a grand tree. Definitely one of the most beautiful outdoor grows I’ve ever done. Very pleased with the results. Just a great smoke and a great high. Nice flavor and burns so nice. Nugs are very dense, almost too dense. All and all an unbelievable grow. All is smokeable and super nice tight nugs.”
Resin production is one of Durban Poison’s star qualities. Whether she is grown indoor or outdoors this lady is often one of the stickiest and most potent varieties you will see. She may produce a slight ‘aniseed’ taste on the buds, along with some tropical fruit aromas and hints of coffee and berry. The real beauty of Durban Poison is that she is easy to grow in any grow system or grow medium. This is an established variety with thousands of satisfied customers and repeat growers.
