        1. Buenas.
          La cultive el verano 2020 Argentina. La creci en maceta geotextil de 150 litros especialmente para tener un sin fin de desarrollo de raíces. Las ramas muy largas, las hojas llaman mucho la atención tiene dientes en punta y muy diferente a los clásico Sativas. En cuestión cosecha, es buena con olor y al fumar tiene un gusto a limón, madera, como la Monster[Eva seeds]. Este año vuelvo a cultivar con la madre que guarde en el invierno.

        2. I grew some from seeds from Ace Seeds. All I can say is I’ve smoked a lot of different varieties. Most to me are “ yep, that gets me stone.’ The Malawi was the first quantifiable different smoke I have ever had. Let me put it this way, out of the four varieties I grew, it was the first to be consumed and I have already replanted. So different but in such a good way!
