    Since the creation of our project more than 10 years ago. We have bet on the study and preservation of classical landraces lines as our breeding basis. We feel blessed and heirs of something that we must continue to care for and preserve, our intention is to continue growing up and as a project to be able to do this for many more years . From our first studies with African lines and with this beautiful Pakistan Chitral Kush of photography we have lived a great journey through the history of the domestication of this wonderful plant.

    Pakistan Chitral Kush is one of the most important lines in our project, one of the first lines we breed and has become a flag of the brand. It is our quintessential pure indica originating from Chitral in the Hindu Kush area of ​​Pakistan. One of our most beautiful mothers and one of the pillars of origin of our project selected by Aeritos in 2006. Híbrids based on it as Red Afro or Red Monster, or as Bisho Purple or Smooth Smoke where it brings speed and more compact flowers, do not stop receiving good reviews from growers all over the world .

    And although it is a magnificent line that will continue with us, we also firmly believe in a change of era, new bets for other genes that bring more variety and richness to the project.

    After these years we have enjoyed unique landraces and some of the hybrids that have most marked a turning point in the history of modern breeding. That’s why this year will be full of new lines and new challenges ; new landraces and new hybrids that we have been studying during the last years and that at last will be able to see the light. The 2019 road map will bring us a new landrace at the beginning of the year: Athina North Greek Landrace.

    Athina North Greek Landrace
    Athina North Greek Landrace

    Athina North Greek Landrace is an old cultivar from northern Greece in the area of ​​Serres, Macedonia. We obtained this line through a very reserved family that assured to take between 60 to 100 years cultivating this same strain. Greece until the nineteenth century was under the control of the Turkish-Ottoman Empire who controlled the entire Middle East and from where these plants were expanded, but also where hybrids were made with other strains from South Africa, Southeast Asia and South America but without DNA studies is impossible to contrast.

    In our first studies we have found homogeneous individuals with an aspect between 70-80 % Indica with good production of branches and flowers as well as high quality resin. Rapid bloom entering and moderately sized l or allowing to grow both outdoors and indoors, with a time plants flowering between 7 and 8 weeks. Rich mixture of sweet aromas with spices with hashish background with an uplifting effect that leaves in a balanced state between activation and relaxation. Already in these first tests, we have detected that it is a variety that does not like extremely high temperatures and that may be prone to show intersex flowers, something that we will continue working to try to clean up.

    In the month of March will end the reproduction of one of the most anticipated hybrids, NorthernLights # 5xHaze from the year 1990 -91 , one of the most influential hybrids in the history of cannabis created by Nevil Scho enmakers and we are sure this older sativa version will transport you to the Amsterdam of the 90s in the first puff.

    NorthernLights#5Haze 90-91
    Northern Lights #5 x Haze 90-91

    A hybrid of Sativa dominance between 90 and 120 days of flowering. Very productive plants with a robust structure , forming large colas and some small lateral branches. Big buds finishes foxtail entirely coated with resin. Soft and discreet aroma of herbs and spices, something that contrasts clearly with its incredible and remarkable powerful brain effect, psychedelic and from another planet, not suitable for beginners and it is not recommended to mix its consumption with other substances. A plant for those who seek powerful effects without limits.

    And as usual, the news will appear first for the VIP members of the tropical family . Where this will be a great year for our Enthusiasts Club, which will greatly increase the range of available genetics and new interactions. One of these new programmed hybrids could be PCK’06 x NL#5Haze , but we would also like to try some more modern hybrid like our Pre98 Bubba Kush / Sour Diesel x NL#5Haze.

    NorthernLights#5Haze 90-91 male
    Northern Lights #5 x Haze 90-91 male

    Pre98 Bubba Kush x Sour Diesel is a hybrid from the United States we have been working a few years and we are sure it will not leave anyone indifferent. They have been hybrids that separately have marked a before and after in the modem breeding and that still have much to contribute as has been seen in recent years. Many of the best breeders now work with them and we did not want to miss this great opportunity to work with these unique lines.

    Also we will take advantage to create new genepool interactions and as a result some of the new hybrids that we’ll see available at mid-year. Taking advantage of the fact that we have already acquired a good knowledge about some of our new selected mothers: Malawi x Dancehall Mapetit, Durban x Ciskei or Pakistan x Nepal among others. We can only tell you that stay very tune up to these changes because they will mean a before and after in our project.

    To end the year, we will return to our landraces, we have a lot of work ahead to get back stock of Durban, Zambian, Congo and others that could also enter our plans but we will tell you in our next Road Map ! Thank you very much to the whole family for the support and trust in our project.

    Ruta de viaje 2019

    Desde la creación de nuestro proyecto hace más de 10 años hemos apostado por el estudio y preservación de líneas clásicas landraces como base de nuestra crianza. Nos sentimos bendecidos y herederos de algo que hay que seguir cuidando y preservando, nuestra intención es seguir creciendo como personas y como proyecto para poder hacer esto muchos años más. Desde nuestros primeros estudios con lineas africanas y con esta preciosa Pakistan Chitral Kush de la fotografía hemos vivido un gran recorrido por la historia de la domesticación de esta maravillosa planta.

    Pakistan Chitral Kush 2006
    Pakistan Chitral Kush 2006

    Pakistan Chitral Kush es una de las lineas más importantes dentro de nuestro proyecto, una de las primeras líneas que criamos y que se ha convertido en un estandarte de la marca. Es nuestra índica pura por excelencia originaria de Chitral en el área de Hindu Kush en Pakistán. Una de nuestras madres más bellas y uno de los pilares de origen de nuestro proyecto seleccionada por Aeritos en el año 2006. Híbridos basados en ella como Red Afro o Red Monster, o como Bisho Purple o Smooth Smoke donde aporta velocidad y flores más compactas, no paran de recibir buenas críticas de cultivadores por todo el mundo.

    Y aunque es una magnifica linea que va a continuar con nosotros, también creemos firmemente en un cambio de era, nuevas apuestas por otros genes que aporten más variedad y riqueza al proyecto.

    Después de estos años hemos disfrutado de landraces únicas y algunos de los híbridos que más han marcado un punto de inflexión en la historia de la crianza moderna. Por eso este año estará lleno de nuevas líneas y nuevos retos; nuevas landraces y nuevos híbridos que hemos estado estudiando durante los últimos años y que por fin podrán ver la luz. El mapa de carretera 2019 nos traerá a principio de año una nueva landrace, Athina North Greek Landrace.

    Athina North Greek Landrace
    Athina North Greek Landrace

    Athina North Greek Landrace es un antiguo cultivar del norte de Grecia en la zona de Serres, Macedonia. Obtuvimos esta linea a través de una familia muy reservada que aseguraba llevar entre 60 y 100 años cultivando esta misma variedad. Grecia hasta el s.XIX estuvo bajo el control del Imperio Turco-Otomano quien controlaba al completo el Medio Oriente y desde donde se expandieron estas plantas, pero también donde se realizaron híbridos con otras cepas provenientes de SudAfrica, Sudeste Asiatico y Sud America pero sin estudios de ADN es imposible contrastar.

    En nuestros primeros estudios hemos encontrado plantas homogéneas con un aspecto entre 70-80% Indica con buena producción de ramas y flores además de alta calidad en su resina. Rápida entrando en floración y de tamaño moderado lo que permite cultivarla tanto en exterior como en interior, con plantas con un tiempo de floración entre 7 y 8 semanas. Rica mezcla de aromas dulces a especias con fondo hachís, con efecto edificante que te deja en un estado balanceado entre activación-relajación. Ya en estas primeras pruebas, hemos detectado que es una variedad a la que no le gustan las temperaturas extremadamente altas y que puede ser propensa a mostrar flores intersexuales, algo que seguiremos trabajando para tratar de limpiar al máximo.

    En el mes de Marzo finalizará la reproducción de uno de los híbridos más esperados, NorthernLights#5xHaze del año 1990-91, uno de los híbridos más influyentes en la historia del cannabis creado por Nevil Schoenmakers y que estamos seguros esta antigua versión más sativa os transportará al Amsterdam de los 90 en la primera calada.

    NorthernLights#5Haze 90-91
    Northern Lights #5 x Haze 90-91

    Un híbrido de dominancia Sativa entre 90 y 120
    días de floración. Plantas muy productivas de estructura robusta, formando
    grandes colas y algunas pequeñas ramas laterales. Cogollos grandes acabados con
    colas de zorro totalmente recubiertas con resina. Aroma suave y discreto de
    hierbas y especias, algo que contrasta claramente con su increíble y notable
    efecto cerebral poderoso, psicodélico y de otro planeta, no apto para
    principiantes y no se recomienda mezclar su consumo con otras sustancias. Una
    planta para quienes buscan poderosos efectos sin límites.

    Y como es costumbre ya, las novedades aparecerán primero para los miembros VIP de la familia tropical. Donde este será un gran año para nuestro Enthusiasts Club, que verá incrementado gratamente el abanico de genéticas disponibles y de nuevas interacciones. Uno de estos nuevos híbridos programados podría ser PCK’06 x NL#5Haze, pero también nos gustaría probar con algún híbrido más moderno como nuestra Pre98 Bubba Kush/Sour Diesel x NL#5Haze.

    Pre98 Bubba Kush x Sour Diesel es un híbrido procedente de los Estados Unidos que llevamos trabajando algunos años y que estamos seguros no dejará indiferente a nadie. Han sido híbridos que por separado han marcado un antes y un después en la crianza moderna y que aún tienen mucho que aportar como se ha podido ver en los últimos años. Muchos de los mejores criadores actuales ya trabajan con ellas y no queríamos perder esta gran oportunidad de trabajar con estas líneas tan únicas.

    También vamos a aprovechar para crear nuevas interacciones de genes y que darán como fruto alguno de los nuevos híbridos que podremos ver disponibles a mediados de año. Aprovechando que ya hemos adquirido un buen conocimiento sobre algunas de nuestras nuevas madres seleccionadas: Malawi x Dancehall Mapetit, Durban x Ciskei o Pakistan x Nepal entre otras. Sólo os podemos adelantar que estéis muy atentos a estos cambios porque van a suponer un antes y un después en el proyecto.

    Para terminar el año, volveremos a la carga
    con nuestras landraces, tenemos mucho trabajo por delante para volver a
    disponer de stock de Durban, Zambian, Congo y otras que también podrían entrar
    en nuestros planes pero eso os lo contaremos en nuestro próximo Road Map!
    Muchas gracias a toda la familia por el apoyo y confianza en nuestro proyecto.

    New changes 2k19

    Greetings tropical family! It is already ending this year 2018 and taking stock there are many positive things to highlight, but also some that continue to improve. We continue to make progress in completing and rebuilding our catalog to offer more strains but also more possibilities for more tastes. During this year we have been able to add some new landraces and new hybrids, your welcome has been very good so it is a path that we want to continue strengthening during this coming year 2019, where we will see several new developments that we have been working for some time. But at the same time we will have to say goodbye to some strains that at the moment are not in our closest plans; Dandy Dance, Heaven’s Gate and Durbakistan, will be offered only while stock last.

    At the same time, we continue to look for a balance of our economic accounts, and although we have reached a level that allows us to remain with the exception of a specific months, we have also noticed a great lack of cash when it comes to evolving the project and improving the current genetic work. There are still many growers who do not have access to our seeds and that is why these changes are aimed at enhancing accessibility to them. One of the first measures that will change for next year will be that all the small packages of seeds will fall in price, to be more affordable to these pockets more adjusted. And something that has also been in great demand is the possibility of acquiring the seeds in individual format, so from January all our feminized seeds will also be available in packages of 1 seed. Two necessary measures to be able to compete with our seeds in the current market and continue to offer a high level of quality.

    Also, we firmly believe in the stores and distributors that support us and have supported us during these years, without them we would never have reached so many of you. So with the new price rate and with better discounts for them we would like to give them back all that support.

    Some extra change will happen, we will reform our online store completely, increase the discount that Clubbers have in the whole store and return the packs combining different strains. And of course the best discounts and free seeds will continue to be available for all orders.

    We do not want to miss this opportunity to thank you all your support and trust in us with a very special Christmas gift: During the month of December all the new strains will be at 25% discount and throughout the month of January all our classic strains too! 2019 arrives with great force and we just want to continue improving to offer you the best!

    We wish you all a very green New Year 2019 !

    New Arrivals – Bisho P. and New Limited Editions!


    by Charles
    No comments yet

    Bisho P. F1 has gradually become one of the flagship of the house and one of the strains most cultivated by tropical growers that is why we have been tuning this incredible hybrid for several years and finally… We are honored to announce the restocking of our Bisho P. being one of our best selling hybrid in our history. So far we have always used several different Ciskei mothers for it, but after several years studying how they genetically interact with our well-known Pakistan Chitral Kush 2006, we have selected the mother that offers the best results and who is less influenced by the pakistan genetic, resulting predominantly Ciskeis plants. Turning our Bisho into a clear feminized version of our favorite South African sativa.

    The mother Ciskei used belongs to the 3rd generation of this line and was selected by Charles during 2015, where this was one of the best generations of our famous Ciskei line. Her strong vigor and the good ratio leaf / chalices that she posses, in addition to that characteristic aroma of acid green apple with sweet touches and pepper make it one of our favorites. The effect is creative and meditative, with an introspective aspect, being very useful for artistic or contemplative tasks. It is recommended to be careful with the pH stability of the soil to get the best of this selection, which in 65-70 days delights us with great productions.

    It’s our bet where we can find less influence for our PCK’2006, our Indica with an intense purple color and very fast in flowering. Hybridization provides speed with strong structures, perfect to support greater yields, sweeter aromas and greater amount of cannabinoids/ terpenoids. The result will not leave anyone indifferent, finding incredible aromas mixing acid and sweet, many of them fruit bouquet of pineapple and green apple. It is a good option to optimize a SOG system with smaller plants and large central colas, but also through pruning and greater work on its structure can be obtained very productive large plants. Predominantly green color phenotypes and some with pink tones make it the best bet for those growers who can not grow our Ciskei in a regular version and in this feminized version they will find those qualities they are looking for.

    After these years of work where it has already proven to be one of the favorite hybrids of growers around the world, we are sure that this new version that we love, you may like it much more. We have been able to refine its qualities and offer a final hybrid with the characteristics that we liked most about the union of these two incredible landrace lines.

    Strain: Bisho P. f1
    Strain Type: 50% Ciskei, SouthAfrica – 50 % Pakistan Chitral Kush
    Hybrid: Ciskei P3 Charles cut x Purple Pakistan Chitral Kush 2006 cut
