Apollo 13 (A13) regular
Circa 1998, our strain description for Apollo 13 read as follows:
Apollo 13: This skunky girl will make your eyes water with her pungent perfume. The delicate balance of indica/sativa makes Apollo 13 perfect for growers limited to a single strain. The long, fat colas and sparkling, sticky side branches really weigh in at harvest time. This is the type of smoke you can’t hold down; it expands and blasts off from the lungs. The high is clear and cerebral, without a hint of paranoia. Her citrus flavor and happy high make Apollo 13 very popular at parties! Two hits and you can leave your own footprints on the moon. Flowering: 45-55 days. Height: 120-150 cm. Yield: 400 gm/m2.
It’s remarkable the number of references to Apollo 13 that come up in discussions of elite cannabis still today. The plants are prized for the varied, but always outstanding phenotypes. There are breeders today who have continued to cross the Apollos through 5 generations and the resulting seeds are in still great demand.
We salute the underground network of Apollo lovers that kept clones of their finest plants thriving for over a dozen years in this recreation of the classic Apollo 13. We crossed our most highly prized original Apollo 13 female to a P75 male we grew out from vintage seeds MrSoul had stashed away. These are ideal genetics to create the quintessential Apollo 13 with a squat profile with short internodes and thick branches supporting dense, resinous buds that reek of citrus-tropical fruity aromas. An above-average yielder of very potent weed with the clear sativa high – a speedy, thought-provoking, motivational weed for creative minds.
Growing Notes: We recommend pruning into multi-headed bushes in large soil containers - four plants per 1000W lamp – then support with stakes or netting.
Morphology & Effect: Select for short internodes and strong branches. Bushy plants with fat, dense buds covered in sparkly resin that reeks of citrus and mango.
Indoor flowering 50-60 days
Apollo Haze regular
(Genius female x Cinderella 99/Super Silver Haze male)
Using a Super Silver Grail Haze male gifted to us by our internet friend “has_some_sense”, we pollenated the famous Genius clone to create this monster hybrid. The SSGH male is the result of our friend’s having crossed his keeper Cinderella 99, the female dubbed "The Grail" to a very select Super Silver Haze male. The result of recombining these genes unlocked a real jewel; this male added potency, vigorous growth, and large, strong branches to the progeny. In our testing, 2/3 of the population remained true to the Genius clone; displaying more compact structure and heavy colas. The remaining 1/3 of the plants expressed a much larger structure and more elongated floral development. The aromas range from the spicy, lime/citrus, fuel of Genius (but amplified) while the shorter phenotypes smell of tropical fruit, elderberries, black currents and a mildly influenced haze afternote. They all taste as they smell and all produce very resinous, large flowers. The high is very energetic with no anxiety and no crash, the perfect active weed with a very sharp head.
Morphology: Mostly Sativa with two major phenotypes: one third of the population is compact in stature, short, bushy, medium-stretch plants, while the other third are tall and lanky. They both yield extremely well and have delicious flavors, so it comes down to your personal preference when the time comes to choosing a mother plant.
How does it smoke: The smoke is saccharine sweet, with citrus and tropical fruit notes over that classic Haze flavor. The high is intense...it cuts through whatever you’d been smoking before.
Growing notes: We recommend growing Apollo Haze in its natural, single-dominant-cola shape, supported with a central stake. Support for the branches is also recommended, as they do pack on the weight.
Yield: A 72-inch-tall plant yields 6-8 ounces. Heavy yield.
Indoor flowering 63-70 days recommended.
She’s BACK… the legendary Cinderella 99.
When Brothers Grimm closed in 2002, the small batches of our original seeds were quickly depleted.
Over the years, elite growers continued to clone their Cinderella 99 moms to preserve them, and several notable breeders continued the legacy by creating hybrids of C99.
It’s my immense pleasure to reissue the Bros Grimm’s most famous strain, recreated using all the experience gleaned from years of reflection and observation.
Select individuals grown from the original batch of C99 were evaluated until a male was chosen to pollenate the original “Holy Grail” Princess female. The results are fit to satisfy the pickiest connoisseur’s expectations of flavor and quality of high. This batch produces a fairly high percentage of purple phenotypes – what else could I give the plant that has everything? Rich in terpenes ranging from fruity to funky, all in the same bud, the flavor and aroma are intense. And of course, the famous clear, soaring C99 high to spark the imagination and motivate creativity - heavily influenced by Haze - devastatingly psychoactive.
Growing Notes: We grow these as a multi-headed bushes with tomato cages or stakes for support. Each plant yields a huge basket of fruity, resin-encrusted colas.
Morphology & Effect: Flowered at 12-18 inches, the finished plant will be approximately 36 inches. Expect frosty tight buds with tropical fruity terpenes & a seriously speedy, thought-provoking high.
Indoor flowering 50 to 60 days
Rosetta StoneGreen Avenger regular
“Shortly before leaving NYC, my buddy “subcool” from TGA sent me a personalized copy of a book he’d written. In it, he waxed poetic over how much he loved the Genius bud I sent him a long time ago. I called him and thanked him for passionately continuing my genetics over the years while I was MIA and told him I’d create this strain, Green Avenger in his honor.
Of course the mother is Genius, that’s obvious… however the male selection needed to be just the right compliment to capture her qualities in the progeny. As karma would have it, I was growing subcool’s award-winning Vortex (Apollo13 x Space Queen) cross, and those seeds produced a very unique male to compliment Genius. When we tested his Vortex sisters, we found two basic phenotypes (tall and short) both are very potent, but only the short ones have the tropical scent. This male combines with Genius to produce squat, branchy plants with tropical scented flowers bursting out of every bud site on the long, sticky colas. Smoke has a citrus-pineapple flavor as it expands in your lungs, delivering a speedy rush of euphoria. It’s simply Genius.”
Morphology & Effect:Expect short internodes and strong branches. Bushy plants with fat, dense buds covered in sticky trichomes that fill the room with a dank, tropical scent.
Growing Notes: Grow Green Avenger in the natural “Christmas tree” shape - pruning the inner-most nodes from the branches to encourage huge colas to form on the end of each branch. Provide support as necessary.
Lineage: Genius (f) x Vortex (Apollo 13 (genius x p75) x Space Queen (Romulan x Cinderella 99)) (m)
Indoor flowering 56 to 63 days
Rosetta StoneRosetta Stone regular
We received so much popular demand to re-issue Rosetta Stone that it was decided to go one better. MrSoul had wanted this release to be even heavier in resin production and overall yield without sacrificing flavor. So this Rosetta Stone flowers a bit longer, but what a joy it is to behold these sparkling colas finishing their 8th and final week. It clones remarkably well and is generally an easy plant to work with. The major difference in this release is the mother plant’s genetics. We pollinated a very special Jack Herer female with an incredible male we discovered when we grew some P75 seeds that MrSoul had stashed away. He looks like a male version of our prized seed mother called Genius – his branching pattern is identical and his floral clusters are dense like female colas – just remarkable. When flowering, his pollen smelled of ripe Honeydew melon. We feel the combination of this male to the world-famous Jack Herer, with all her amazing qualities, created the ultimate Rosetta Stone.
Lineage: Jack Herer x P75
Growing Notes: Support them well during flowering - they will be big (regularly 3-5ft indoors), vigorous plants with tons of resin and a pungent, fruity aroma.
Morphology & Effect: Expect wonderfully sweet, fruity smelling plants with a strong note of jasmine incense. This is a perfectly balanced Sativa/Indica hybrid. Potent, uplifting, cerebral high with an adrenaline rush. Definitely a weed for artists.
Indoor flowering 56-63 days
