From a genetic point of view Congo is a double dose of Sativa, seasoned with a dash of Indica. Congo is well-suited for outdoor cultivation because the plants have a good resistance to lower temperatures, mildew and botrytis. The buds have a delicious smell of wild strawberry and flowers. The effect is energetic and psychedelic, perfect for creative minds.
ACE Seeds - Congo: Energetic and psychedelic effect
From a geneticist's point of view Congo is a 70% Sativa/30% Indica hybrid, but we prefer to describe her as a double dose of Sativa seasoned with a pinch of Indica. The guys at ACE Seeds sired this strain by mating a Congo #3/Chitral hybrid with Bangi Congo, a rare and almost extinct, fast flowering African Sativa.
The good resistance to lower temperatures, mildew and botrytis makes Congo a well-suited choice for outdoor cultivation, but she will thrive equally well in a grow-room in SOG or ScrOG setups and produce high yields. Indoors, the time for reaping has come after 9-11 weeks flowering time - outdoors the plants reach full maturity in the second half of October.
The large and long buds are studded with pale pistils and covered in resin glands. The buds emanate a delicious smell of wild strawberry and flowers and produce an energetic, inspiring and psychedelic effect, perfect for creative minds.
