Strain review by Gatorbackbob: Almach

Strain: Almach

Grower Name: Gatorbackbob


Medium: Roots organics regular, amended with perlite

Nutrients: Water only until halfway through switched to hydro nutes, the 6/9 gh Lucas formula 5.9ph

Lights type and schedule (indoor): Vipar spectra 450w 18/6

Days from Seed: 65

Harvest Points: Harvested around 2 weeks early, for an anticipated extra sativa high, trichomes were almost all cloudy, with a few clear, no amber.

Dry Yield (grams): About 10 in a solo cup 3/4 full of medium

Growth Comments: She’s very fun to grow, and this plant had 2 beautiful mutations, but I consider them wonderful. First, she had a wonderful leaf variegation, to where the early fans had a wonderful color pattern of yellow and green, split down the middle of the leaf, looking similar to an ivy plant. Secondly, every other node produced double tops, meaning that further stabilization of this trait will greatly increase the yield potential. She finishes fast and is a pleasure to trim, although she will foxtail into thin, sativa buds with decent density.

Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.): Fantastic smells all through growth! She was very mild in veg, during flower the smell increased into a strong skunky note, mixed with pineapple, then at harvest it migrated into a deep funky mango, the scissor hash was delicious. Cured at at least 8 weeks now, she smells of cheese and dried dark fruit, like cheese and fine wine!

The Smell: Mango, Pepper, Fruit, Pineapple, Hash, Skunk, Citrus, Pineapple, Mango, Plum

The Smoke: Surprisingly expansive, I can’t hold a good size bowl hit for long. Pretty thick, not too dry, hashy, tastes like old school UK cheese. It’s enjoyable, doesn’t take much to get you where you need to be.
