This plant itself is quite extraordinary looking, with massive olive-jade nugs and dark amethyst leaves coated with amber pistils that give it a furry appearance. It is medium in width and height, but the colas are long and dense. These resin-covered colas give the plant a sticky, sugary appearance upon ripening. When exposed to colder temperatures, the nugs crystallize and turn purple, an indicator of the strain’s potency.
