    So after five grows I decided it was time for sativa. Spent several weeks researching breeders where I found Ace Seeds and their diligent approach to landrace breeding. I settled on Malawi x Panama Fem so that I could start a perpetual grow with great genetics.

    from https://www.originalseedsstore.com/ace-seeds-malawi-x-panama~20143

    23 DAY VEG

    These weren't bad to veg but in 2/6 seeds one set sprouted twins and the other struggled to germinate and root. I can't say if upward growth during veg was extensive because I trained down into flat canopies. I super cropped them several times and fimmed them.

    Flipped to flower pretty effortlessly until about week 4 where two of the phenos weren't developing calyx. I reduced the light cycle to 11/13 which caused the phenos to start budding.

    From week 5-6 I had leaves shedding badly as if I had a deficiency but they stopped in week 6 for some reason.


    I eventually had to add the second net because the weight of the bud had broken a few branches and they would out the tent. Strain was easy to grow just more patience required.

    I continued lowering the light schedule down to 9/15 where they finished within breeder hombres of 10-12 weeks with milky/amber trichomes. Plants did really well in SCROG.

    For the pros
    • Fast growing
    • Strong 3-4x stretch
    • Likes high heat - I did 80-86f
    • High humidity isn't a problem - 75% in veg and 60% through flower
    • Easy to train
    • Dense bud
    • Above average resin and oil production
    • Long bud structures
    • Low nutrient requirement - averaging 700ppm
    For the cons
    • May need extra silica as the stems break easily
    • Possibly requiring the light schedule to be altered may be taboo for some and possible reduction in yield without adequate lighting
    I broke these stems pretty easily and spent quite awhile trimming in flower because they ended up bushy. I enjoyed this grow with its sweet lemon scents and sticky buds and I will grow it again. Ace has great genetics and responsive customer service. Everyone I gave clones are enjoying the genetics. They clone easily and are perfect for a first sativa.

    Beautiful grow. Thanks for taking the time for this review.
    At 10-12 weeks that is a great time for a full sativa like Malawi X Panama.
    Don't forget my invitation for the tasting party and smoke review!

      Still drying so it will be a month or more. I'll review it cured to be accurate
