Flowering: 53-58 Days
Romulan x C-99, a Canadian Island classic reborn.
Rocket Man is a line that began in my 2003 catalog, a hybrid of C99 and Romulan, that was later outcrossed with Golden Temple Kush, then back crossed to the C99 x Romulan again.
Rocket Man produces long, leafy light green nugs caked in a dense layer of oily trichomes. It smells strongly of tropical fruits, and when burned it tastes like pineapple slices laced with notes of charred wood and an earthy spiciness.
It is packed with terpenes and other cannabinoids often overlooked in most commercial strains. Those cannabinoids include CBG, CBC, CBN, THCV, and CBL. It is a plant that requires all of your attention when growing because of the need to top it constantly, not to mention the exceedingly strict light schedule coupled with a mediocre yield! Even so, while it is hard work to grow, it is a joy to use, which is why so many growers persevere with this strain.
If you are growing indoors, pay special attention to this plant during the first three weeks of flowering because it gets exceedingly tall. We recommend trying the screen of green (SCROG) or sea of green (SOG) methods. It tends to grow lanky which means it requires canopy support. It performs best in slightly acidic growing mediums with a pH of around 6.0.
