nature abhors a vacuum… And so do I!
The temperature did drop a little bit, tonight is the new moon , and seeds are from the tropics! Not much work to convince myself to sow a few seeds to fill in the veg cabinet.
I always wondered why there is not more Ghanean genetics around? I have seen quite a few Nigerian strains, some from Senegal, Congo… but nothing from Ghana beside CBG offering.
I haven’t been impressed if not disappointed by what I found in most of the central/west Africa countries I have been to
I wish I could go more exploring the countryside but most of my experience is limited to the main cities, and the canna part is more about twigs, seeds and leaves than nice flavorful buds.
A common point was hearing people raving about Ghana weed when I was complaining about the local one so you can understand how curious I was before going to Accra. I have not been disappointed at all!
There is quite a big Rasta culture in Ghana, weed is easily available … It was kind of what I was expecting!
I liked what I found: spicy taste and uplifting from what I remember. I liked it enough to keep some seeds from what I scored.
I gave some to friends but I doubt they ever grew it. I grew some during an outdoor winter run to check the germination and they were looking like the ones from CBG: fast and foxtaily but they did not mature completely before starting to reveg so I had to cut them.
They are now 8 years old, I have only 8 left but they were stored in the fridge so I hope to have a good germination rate. The plan is to document the plants, and if everything goes as I wish make some seeds for anybody who wants them.
It is my time to give back: after lurking/learning, I hope now I can share something which looks special to me!
After a day in a cup of water I dropped the 8 seeds directly in the soil…
See you in a week
