Hello,

I bought afhani #1 in a sensi shop in Amsterdam. once full grown the plante can't really be indica. it has small buds, big leaves and many branches.

So i think i didn't have the good seeds and many friends had this problem.

its a shame.

Thanks Chris, Pilou if you are unsatisfied with the seed then as Chris suggested contact sensi direct at info@sensiseeds.com.

That said Afghani#1 is a cross of different afghanica strains and doesn't grow into the little xmas tree shape you would expect from say Hindu Kush. It is a larger plant with larger leaves than many people expect when they first grow it.

^^^^

It is AF1. I've seen quite a lot of 'complaints' about this issue. Just because the plant isn't small doesn't mean it's not AF. As SL said it's a cross of AF strains. I grew her and she went well over the meter mark with quite a severe jump in height during flowering.

Savage smoke though, no mistaking her indica genetics!

I dont mean to nit pick, but i feel i have to point this out. According to the sensi site Afghani#1 is only 95% indica. From the description of Afghani#1... 
 
Many Indica-heads prefer their ganja without a trace of Sativa or Skunk, while some purists will only consume weed or hash that they know to be 100% Cannabis Indica
 
Surley this would mean that said purists would not infact smoke Afghani#1 at all! %3c3c3cacko

the calyx formation , and branching of Afghani#1 are slightly borrowed from from sativa plants
the high, cannabinoid profile, leaf form and flowering time are indica

purists would love such thing

Well  there is a strain out  there that has almost identical flavour as Schwarzenegger.
It is the OG kush.
Problem with OG is the high isnt as calming as a pure indica like schwarzenegger, and the aftertaste of OG kush is somewhat "HOT" compared to the cooling aftertaste of Schwarzenegger.
Also , the flowering time of OG Kush is really long if you like dense nuggets; OG is airy bud up to the 10th week, scharzenegger is compact already at 42 days.
Next to that Scharzenegger is slightly stronger than OG Kush.

The Chemdawg , of wich OG Kush is said to be a direct linear decendent, is probably closely related to Schwarzenegger.
chemdawg is said to be mostly pakistani genetics.
it is for this reason I am planning to have pakis and Schwarzenegger  selfed, in the same room , in an attempt to crossbreed the two, without interference of males .

I do prefer regular seeds over feminised, but due to the lack of an ultrapotent male, I am obliged to cross them the artifcial way.

So what I am planning is to make a strain that is faster, stronger and slightly better tasting than OG Kush.
If i can get the stretching of Paki , and the density of Schwarzenegger, I think I may have a superb strain.
A plant that grows as lush as any other zommercial bud, with the flavour purest earthy tasting indica,

But thats still a pipedream.

the Schwarzenegger has a low yield in my opinion, i advise you to try this: in week 3 to 4 step over to a half dosis pk13 14 and look what the does, if its not overfed, raise the dosi little by little.. thats what i did , caused by no money for other food, it gives a better yield and no leafs in the bud!

It is true schwarzenegger can perfom in a low yield modus.
IMO it is important to realise that Schwarzenegger doesnt like the HPS to be close, and it prefers to have a transitional preflowering period with 15 hours daylight.
This intermediate stage is very important.
Most low yielding indicas have a hard time with a sudden switch from 18 to 12 hours.
Although sativa plants are in need of an abrubt change of photoperiod, indicas seem to have a different nature in my humble opinion.

Providing a gradual shifting of photo period allows Schwarzenegger to perform even better.

I have seen schwarzenegger perform outstandingly on a rich organic diet of wormcastings an biobizz products.
Providing a fan to blow direct heat away from the foliage is no luxury.
pk 13/14 in the 3rd or 4th week of flowering is an excellent suggestion, but it does ruin the rapid calyx formation in the 5th and 6th week imo.
The balance of nitrogen versus potassium and fosforus should be looked after very well, otherwise the cola develop,ment will stagnate.
Also , having had best results on pure organic feeding, i am hesitant to add a non-organic compound that can damage beneficial bacterial herds in the soil imo.

To have indica perform outstandingly , I have good hopes for the soil mix I am planning to use.
30% canna coco, 40% wormcastings ( as fresh as possible), 5% used soil , 15% plagron royalty mix or if unuavailable "Welkoop Landgoed aarde = dutch soil),10% sand, and a handfull of Maerl. ( a dutch lime soil from the south of the netherlands)

The canna coco provides structure and drainage,
the wormcastings provide micronutrients, nutriends humic and vulvic acids,
the royalty mix is good for buffering a bit of nutrients, and contains a wide spectrum of well balanced nutrients/micronutrients
The sand provides lateral waterflow in soil , allowing evenly dispersed water.
The maerl acts as a ph buffer, and provides magnesium for assisting in fast growth

Using above recipe will result in easier growing indicas.
( it is only part of my basic recipe, sometimes it is eminent to change , according to circumstances, like adding more or less coco, or adding coffegrounds or tea remnants to chase away lice....

Indicas , and expecially afghani , are "beyond"ormal weed.
But, if you want a big harvest , imo one needs to really pamper them , and get to know their character.,

Just like getting to know a lady...
