Like all of his breeding projects, DJ Short’s Flo began with the duo of Thai parents (Flo is Purple Thai-dominant), beefed up and normalized by an Afghani. There are two main phenotypes for Flo, one that is totally light green (“the Green pheno”) and another that has lots of blue shades in it (“the Blue pheno”). Though the plant is Sativa-dominant, the Afghan cut down on the flowering time and overall height to make it very suitable for indoor growth. The most prized Flo variation is often referred to as the “Temple Flo” cut and smells like exquisite Nepalese temple hash.
A sativa/indica cross (approx 60% sativa/40% indica) with very sativa characteristics in the finished product that also matures quickly. The large, tight, sphere shaped buds are made up of small, densely packed calyxes. The plants are taller and like to branch out making them ideal for “training”, i.e. tying back or bending over. Indoors, the plants are fully mature by week seven of the flowering cycle. Outdoors, under optimal conditions the plant is a super-producer capable of being multi-harvested over a period of time. Branch-end buds ripening by the beginning of October (at forty-five degrees north latitude) are harvested and new buds form and mature about every ten days after and can be harvested through the end of November, or however long the plant can be kept alive, making Flo ideal for greenhouse production. Deep purple hues darken the buds the more they mature. The motivational high produced by the Flo is quite unique and long-lasting. The flavour is that of old school Nepalese Temple hash with a head reminiscent of Highland Oaxaca Gold producing a musky, burgundy, floral complex palate. A most enjoyable and pleasant experience. Rated the #1 strain at the 1996 Cannabis Cup by Cannabis Culture magazine.
Lineage: Highland Thai, Purple Thai (landrace Chocolate Thai x landrace Oaxacan Gold), and Afghani (one generation-removed landrace from the Pacific Northwest) — these are the basis of nearly all of DJ Short’s breeding projects and the Flo is heavy on the Purple Thai and Afghani.
