Nirvanas Ice Description

Through an intensive process of selection among thousands of plants, we managed to create Ice, a perfect union of quantity and quality. With its ancestry of Afghan, Shiva, Northern Light and a very special Skunk, Ice is a truly spectacular hybrid. Its dense flowers are richly covered in trichomes and the buds that form along the main branches have a high flower-to-leaf ratio. Ice will flourish in both hydro and soil environments. With its heavy stone effect and almost fuel-like aroma, it's no wonder Ice won the 1998 Cannabis Cup (?) hands down.

ICE went hermie with no outside input

was in tent with three other strains

it started female then started showing balls

I picked them off but it eventually turned totally male

never seen that before

only 2/5 germed

This was an easy strain to grow, needed little attention. Tolerated the nutrient strength of a wide range of strains, making it a good choice for a mixed crop. Turned out to have very dense buds, 50/50 cola to single bud ratio. Not much larf. The yield was ok, but not one of the best, this is a connoisseur grade strain that has great taste, structure, growth and very strong, not a cash crop, but high bag appeal resulting in a good price. Trichome density would lend itself well to concentrate production. Leaves sugar up very well and is very good for BHO extraction with above average yield. this comment

One of my favorite strains. I'm growing another 3 straight after growing 2. The high is long lasting and heavy. A very high leaf to flower ratio. Massive stretch so plan accordingly. Nirvana recommend a 8-9 week flowering period but i suggest a 9-10 week flower if you want a strong hit, just look at some of the online forums.

Note on nutrients!

Ice is very nitrogen sensitive. Go easy on the nutrient levels during the veg stage. I started off using a quarter strength and only upped the dosage when the leaves started showing signs of deficiency.


Needs a little more TLC than other strains but you'll be more than rewarded when the time comes. this comment
