Dinafems Critical+ Description

Dinafem Critical+ Selected by a great grower from Bilbao to whom we owe this little marvel, for a wide variety of good reasons, this plant won the 1 st High Life Cup in Barcelona. The most interesting feature of this strain is without a doubt the intense aroma and taste that it produces; it smells like fruity skunk, but its smell is very strong which could pose a real problem particularly indoors where the use of carbon filters is a must until it is totally dry and packaged. It is important to emphasise that when smoked, even mixed with tobacco, the original taste comes through and it does not taste like burnt grass. It is really intense from start to finish and a real pleasure to smoke, leaving a great aftertaste.

It grows like a sativa and it looks a sativa with slim, narrow leaves, not too dark, long and quite thin stems for the size of their flowers. It has a lot of side branching with a short internodal distance which improves production. It is advisable to control the height before flowering, due to its tendency to grow rapidly during this period. During this flowering period it shows all its potential, when what looks like a sativa becomes a super-producer that outstrips all other strains. It is great for SCRaG systems; flower development is realty fast and it is ready to harvest in 45/50 days with 12 hours of light indoors.

Outdoors it is also a great producer, flowering fast and ripening completely by the 4th week of September; it can have mould problems but, being a fast flowering plant, can be harvested without significant loses.

It has high resin production and very high strength effect, which a combined physical and mental effect.

THC: High (12%-16%)
CSO: Medium
Production: Very High
Height outdoors: Can reach 3 m
Blend: Indica-Sativa (50%-50%)

Very slow in veg, compared to other strains that where in the room at the same moment. But then again in flowering, the plant quickly reaches its point where all the minicalyces with white pistils are set, and than it starts swelling (the calyces) and ripening pretty fast. This all happens in about 40 days (50 days if you include start of 12/12)

It is advisable not to prune to heavily before you start 12/12, because that way you will obtain 30 small branches, instead of 10 big ones, due to the light penetration to the underdevelopped lower buds, that then become quite small mini buds on small branches. However very even canopy, no spikes at all. SO DO NOT PRUNE the fast-blossoming indica type of critical+! Cannot confirm this about the sativa pheno because I haven't met the lady yet ;) this comment

From feminized seed, vegged under 18 hours T5 lighting 6-8 weeks. Flowering under 650 HPS, thinned to main growth branches after 14 days, 74 days total flower time. Thick hard buds made long branches droop (not a detriment). Very strong, overripe fruity smell with pine undertones. Strong energetic high even for old timer like me. this comment
