MEPHISTO GENETICS – SKYWALKER
Mephisto Genetics – Skywalker auto project was something which in a sense we stumbled into. Growing from feminized seeds, as breeders, is a practice we tend to shy away from. Unless they have been produced by us. Of course, we know they can be produced in a decent, stable way. As we do and there can most definitely be fire lurking within. It’s just wherever possible we like to have the option to see the boys too and get our teeth stuck into the genetics. So just prior to our first outdoor season after moving countries. 4 years ago now, having little to no stability we were faced with a situation of needing to go balls to the wall. Fully exploit what could possibly have been our only chance at a true summer outdoor in a good climate.
We felt the lineages involved and similarities therein would be highly complimentary. The aim was to further intensify the already high quality of our triangle kush. With a strain we just couldn’t put down. Well worthy for the inception of the Mephisto Genetics Artisanal Automatics line. The Skywalker Kush was memorable to all of our friends we shared the flowers with. We still get asked about it now, frequently. Only after these few years of work can we finally answer, yes she’s back, in AUTOFLOWER form.
Skywalker Strain behavior and structure:
Mephisto Genetics – Skywalker Auto is mid-sized, good vigour and growing without too much foliage. By employing an easy strategy of leaf tucking, you can encourage her to shoot branches up with little to zero interference to overall growth. Her open structure allows good penetration, therefore increased yields and minimal popcorn. Inter- nodal length is moderate and she’s very manageable.
In the flowering stage she has a very distinctive appearance. Fine leaves emanate from the flowers in an almost spikey fashion and have a tendency to curl upwards. The buds whilst not out rightly singularly large, have incredible density. Which later become like mini rocks that hit your tray as you trim them. The flowers are very white in appearance. They are spread evenly and give a nice flower/plant size ratio. Odor control is an absolute must whilst growing this variety.
