Basic / Breeders Info

Royal Queens Critical Description

Royal Queen Seeds Critical There are always lots of requirements to fill when deciding which strain to grow: strength, yield, flavour, ease of growth, suitability to climate etc. There is one marijuana plant that tries to bring together all these features in a perfect balance in order to produce the ultimate cash crop: large yield, short flowering period, good smoke. Critical is a plant designed for the 'cash-crop' grower who wants the best of both worlds and is guaranteed to fulfil expectations.

Our Critical plant is an Indica dominant genetic which shows in its small size, staying below 1 metre tall. It has short internode spacing, which will eventually fill up with buds, making it the high-yielding specimen it is. Its small height also makes it suitable for those looking to grow in small spaces, for the more discreet growers.

Grown indoors, it will average 65-75 grams per plant and can easily hit 600 grams per square metre under a 600W light. Grown outdoors, it prefers a warmer climate such as in Spain, Italy or California and, given the right conditions, will produce over 100 grams per plant. Due to its relatively short flowering time, it can be grown in more northern latitudes (UK, Netherlands); however, it will not reach its full potential as she would indoors.

No other plant from Royal Queen Seeds will yield as much in 7 weeks as Critical Feminized. This short flowering time makes it suitable for growers with a tight schedule. Commercial growers will be pleased with the results in sea/screen of green operations as it delivers large yields with very little maintenance.

The final key to a good commercial crop is a solid smoke; it wouldn't make sense to have such a high-yielding plant with no power in the puff. Therefore we are glad to say that Critical offers just as much in the stone as it does in the yield. It brings a nice stoned effect which mellows you down into a relaxed vibration.

Yup. Here's your cash crop. I was totally amazed at how strong, healthy, and productive it is. Grown on a 12 hour light cycle, under a 600 watt sodium bulb, in three gallon pots. Took about ten weeks from seed to harvest. It got about 60 cm high but the production was very high. Produced about 60 grams. Almost all bud. this comment

Appearance: Light green, compact, large buds

Aroma: A blend of chocolate, blueberries, and coffee, so a Chocolate Blueberry Mocha or Chocolate covered blueberries and espresso beans. There is also little bit of funk hiding out in the basement that gets louder every so often just to let you know this is no ordinary chunk of bud.

Taste: Smooth with a mouth-watering fruitiness and a very light, hardly noticable, minty-cool finish.

Effect: Excellent balance of head and body. I would put it at 50/50, with no paranoia or head-games. A great blend of heightened sense, mellow legs, and a few giggles. Play around or sit-down, this one won't do you wrong and the more I smoke it the more it grows on me. this comment

I grew one feminised Critical from RQS using:

Lighting: 280 watt LED

Medium: Coco (in a Air pot)

It grew vigorously and was easy to care for. Mine seemed to have a fair bit of sativa in it and would benefit from a longer flowering cycle.

I flowered her for 61 days before chopping down. I felt like she could have gone for longer easily. (9-10 weeks perhaps on my pheno)

Loved the heat. Tolerant to nutes. Responded very well to topping (once) and was really easy to grow. An excellent beginner or even advanced growers strain.

Vegged for approx 4 weeks and flowered for 61 days. Good calyx to leaf ratio and trimming was a breeze. Decent yeilder too. I pulled 2.5 oz dry (72 grams of bud) from one plant.

Mold risk during late flower so keep an eye out for her! this comment

A great gift from RQS, thanks!

Side branches need help during end of flower. Great yield with a powerful skunk quality this comment

Terrific hardy plant but keep a close eye as it tends to mold. Heavy production on a 6 foot frame. Timeline: Male (early June), Female (mid June) and Finish (early August). this comment
