Germination and Vegetative Stage
A grower called “The Doc” germinated three feminized Wappa seeds in order to get a first impression of the Wappa strain. All of the seeds sprouted perfectly and the seedlings were grown under two 125 W CFL lights (6400 K) during the first two weeks. The seedlings were transplanted to 11 litre pots filled with Plagron Standard Mix. After two weeks, The Doc replaced the CFLs with two Planta Star 600 Watts high pressure sodium lamps and one with 400 Watts. After the third week in the vegetative stage, at a height of 30-40 cm and a width of already more than 40 cm, the first side branches slipped through the huge leaves from below. The three Wappa plants grew very homogeneously and bushy, producing many long side branches within a short time, something that is also rarely seen on indica plants. After four weeks in the vegetative stage – the plants had kept on growing vigorously, having reached a height of 50-60 cm.
The Doc induced flowering by reducing the light period from 18/6 (day/night) to 12/12 and replaced the Planta Star lights with two 600 Watts Osram Son-T Plus and one with 400 Watts. Already two weeks later, flower cluster formation had started at the plant tips. The numerous side branches kept on stretching in the first weeks of flowering, and so did the whole plants, also further increasing in width. After four weeks in the flowering stage, the plants had reached a height of about 100 cm, having become luscious globe cannabis plants that raised the expectation of a bumper harvest, the more so as the buds were becoming very big, dense and long.
At the end of the fourth week of flowering, the buds were already coated with a shimmering resin layer. After five weeks, flower production kind of exploded, the buds tremendously increased in size and density. Also in the flowering stage, there was a great deal of uniformity, there were no different phenotypes, even the flower structure was identical on all the three plants. The only difference found on one plant was the fact that it even outmatched the high resin content of the other two plants. Also the fruity sweet aroma was the same with each plant.
All the three plants – which had grown to a height of about 120 cm in the end – could be harvested between the eighth and ninth week of flowering, which was in line with the flowering time data stated by Paradise Seeds. After the buds had been dried, The Doc happily took 312 grams off the scales, a yield that did fulfil the high harvest expectations.
Smell and Smoke Report
Wappa’s high was as strong as expected, it had a quick onset and lasted for many hours, having a pleasant body relaxing effect which, indeed, was not paralysing – The Doc still could move easily and was mentally present, being densely enwrapped in mental candyfloss though, he was heavily stoned but also felt a lot of euphoria. Wappa’s smell and flavour also fully convinced him, the buds provided a mild and sweet smoke with nice subtle fruity undertones.
For The Doc, Wappa easily ranks amongst the best strains of Paradise Seeds!
