Pineapple Upside Down Cake (Clone)

Pineapple Upside Down Cake smells exactly like its name. The effect is immediately rewarding, uplifting and spiritual. The Sativa in the Trainwreck brings a sharp loudness and the Indica balances its energetic effect. The terpenes from this strain have an uncanny capability to withstand the test of time, lasting well into the next year and remaining strong even if your stash is accidentally left in a hot car. This is a superb strain for terpene extraction or any manufacturing. Dripping with creamy trichomes like the glazing they pour over its namesake cake, this strain will leave you wishing you had their secret family recipe.

Romulan (Premium Clone)

Experiencing the Romulan’s legendary taste and power should be on any serious cannabis connoisseur’s bucket list. Romulan was created decades ago by combining all-but extinct heirloom varieties from Thailand, Colombia, Mexico and Afghanistan. The result is a vigorous hybrid with a heavy, raw terpene profile. Romulan makes extremely strong extracts with a very high amount of noticeable terpenes. Users who have made rosins, or wax, from this plant report it as being the strongest extract that they have ever had.

General Information & History

  • BREEDER: Romulan Genetics
  • TYPE: 50/50 Hybrid
  • GENETICS: (Korean Thai x Mexican x Colombian x Afghani) x Colombian
  • THC %: 20% – 24.99%
  • GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN: Pacific Northwest
  • STORY: This strain started out in the PNW as a Korean sourced Thai, grown by Veterans of the Korean War in the 1950’s. Over time, they developed a loose growers collective made up of close friends, who were also veterans and motorcycle club members. These growers stretched in location from Canada to Southern California. During a 30 year time span, they slowly introduced several strains in their attempts to make the plant easier to grow. Each time they bred their worked Thai line with a new strain, they worked those resulting plants for many years before introducing/breeding in a new strain. The first was Mexican sativa, and that result was eventually bred with a Colombian sometime in the late 1970’s. They eventually crossed it with an Afghani indica, but did not like the results so they back-crossed those results with the Colombian strain. The final result, they deemed complete, and over the years it became known as Romulan.

Growing Information & Patient Expectations

  • FLOWERING TIME: 8-9 weeks
  • YIELD: Heavy, Moderate
  • DIFFICULTY: Intermediate
  • GROWING TIPS: This slightly sativa dominant polyhybrid grows like an indica. May require support due to branching and not the most suitable for SOG (does very well in SCROG grows, outdoor, and indoor)
  • SCENT: Smells like an odd mixture of rotting old laundry crossed with a dead skunk and pine trees
  • FLAVOR: Complex layers of Skunk, Pine, Spicy, Pepper, Earthy, Hash and a slight Citrus Funk
  • EFFECTS: A near perfect hybrid high, with an equal head and body buzz that comes with zero anxiety. More suitable for heavy smokers, or those looking for highly potent Cannabis. Can make you giggly, and send you into talkative introspective conversations. Typically does not make you sleepy, or induce couch lock unless taken in larger doses.
  • SUGGESTED MEDICAL USE: Excellent for pain, especially nerve-based pain. Users report that it helps with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fibromyalgia with exceptional results.

Easy Pot – Autoflowering Plants

Dark Heart Nursery’s Easy Pot is an autoflowering cannabis plant, grown from feminized seedlings, that stands roughly 15-18 inches in height and is surrounded by a “tomato cage” for proper support. Easy Pot plants are sold in a 2.5 gallon pot where they will remain for the duration of their life. This means they do not need to be transplanted. They will start flowering shortly after you bring them home and will be ready to harvest in around 40-60 days. Autoflowers are known to be hardier and less finicky than regular cannabis plants, which makes them perfect for beginner growers!

Here’s why Easy Pot is great for beginners, hobby growers and anyone interested in growing cannabis:

  • Fun to grow! Each of these vigorous plants will produce beautiful flowers in a wide variety of conditions. However, the better the conditions, the better your result!
  • Just add water: Soil mix is pre-charged with slow release fertilizer that provides complete plant nutrition every time you water.
  • Proven genetics: Stable seeds from award winning breeders means you’ll have a healthy plant that will outperform your expectations.
  • Attractive: Pot design is attractive and modern, and fits right into your space. This is a must-have garden varietal!

Tips For Growing Easy Pot

Autoflowering plants do not rely on photoperiods to trigger their flowering cycle like traditional cannabis plants do. In order to produe healthy yields they need a sufficient amount of light during their lifecycle. Depending on the time of year your autoflower plant can do well both indoors and outdoors.

During the spring and summer months a well lit windowsill or sunroom could do the trick indoors. Outdoors, any well lit area of your outdoor garden would suffice. During the fall and winter months the weather can be a bit cold and could affect the overall yield of your harvest. During this time, keeping your plant under light indoors would likely produce the best results.

Sol Mate

A Feminized Autoflower that will put out the weight and the trichome production rivals indoor flower even when grown outdoors! The taste is like nothing we’ve seen in photoperiod type cannabis, reminding us of ripe cherimoya and even durian with the fuel after-burn. Sol Mate Auto will get you through the tough times whether you’re a hobbyist wanting to grow in an easily manageable way or need a big crop to come in early without the hassle of light deprivation.
