Sour Strawberry Kush X 24 Carat F3 ( Pink Pheno )
Project introduction and Overview:
Sour Strawberry Kush: An ode to BOG and Elite Automatics
This is a project that's been a long time in the making, we wanted to make a new strain from scratch using 24 carat as the autoflower parent. 24 carat was the first Mephisto project that we completed way back in 2012/2013 so we hold it very close to our hearts. Usually it takes a lot of deliberation, combing through the internet and grow journals, as well as testing and growing out many strains to find our breeding project candidates, but this time we instantly knew where to go for some fire genetics. BOG. For anyone that hasn't grown out any BOG gear, some classic trademarks are dense dense flowers always coated in sticky white frost with unique aromas to boot.
Sour strawberry kush stood out immediately as the girl to look to, afterall who dislikes strawberries?! who dislikes kush?, who dislikes sours? It sounded perfect.
When we first developed 24 carat, whilst still in the regular stage there were 3 distinct phenotypes split by colour, a green (which later became the mainstay for 24 carat) pink, and purple.
The pink pheno held a delicate balance between potency and having an exotic edge to it, so we delved through our MG breeding stock to ressurect the pink regs to use to cross into the Sour Strawberry kush and begin working from there.
At each subsequent generation we've selected for plants with an abundance of resin, subtle pink hues and a delectible skunky strawberry flavour and aroma. Having genetics in common the Sour Strawberry kush and 24 carat have blended together exceptionally well and the resulting strawberry nuggets is a delight to grow and toke.
From the first release of 2018 Mephisto artisanal strains it's hard to go wrong with the Strawberry nuggets, we're not a hype machine but this lady is well worth checking out. Say no more.
Strain behaviour and structure:
Strawberry nuggets is a thick short afghan girl, she grows at a good rate incorporating a fat main stem and hardy branches. She produces thick green foliage and some of the widest fan leaves from anything we offer, read; dinner plates!
She loves loves to bush and often will end up as wide or wider than she is tall. Strawberry nuggets does take some maintenance whilst growing to see the best results and yield. As a minimal we would recommend several spells of leaf tucking to encourage the inner shoots to get out of the traps and race away. Due to her thickness she isnt the easiest to train but it's definitely possible.
Strawberry nuggets transitions into her flowering cycle quickly so it's imperitive that she gets a good start in the best environment. She develops thick white frost from early on and this frost builds and builds as she progresses.
The flowers formed have a VERY high density so it's also essential to ensure good airflow and a low humidity level around her from mid-flower onwards.
She's good for a low density SOG, we have ran her in house always at 9 plants per light without issue.
From our testing strawberry nuggets has several phenotypes that have differing level of colours, you can get pure green through to subtle pink hues then further ranging to pinks and colouration bleeding into the flower leaves, and rarer still we have had pure purple phenotypes emerging at a rate of about 1 in 10.
She's a magical little plant to grow, with exotic fruity smells eminating from her combined with the high quality golf ball-esque flowers. The resulting harvest gives dense nuggetry super high in bag appeal, aroma, looks, effect, terpenes this strain ticks a lot of boxes.
She's harvestable from 65 days from sprout in most environments meaning you can have a quick turn around of superb quality meds.

Flowering time means the time the plant/buds need to get fully ripe (harvesting time) and we measure this time from the clock is turned on 12/12 cicle.
Plants from different country's and area's can have different flowering time's. These are putted in groups like : Indica / Sativa / Hybride / ruduralis. Al these type of plants have different flowering periods and are mentioned in the seeds feature.
A indica type of plant has a shorter flowering period from around the 7-9 weeks while sativa's can have flowering periods from 10-13 weeks or more. The hybride is a combination from those plants with flowering times that will be in between so around the 10 weeks.
The grow period of seedlings is always at least 3-4 weeks, this grow period they will take and it doesnt matter if tthe clock is on 18/6 or 12/12. The 12/12 from start method is a good method but sanni shop advice's to use hybride's or sativa's to be sure you get the space nicely filled. With indica type of plants we advice to put in more plants on a m2 like example 16-24 plants on a m2
The grow period is also depending on the type of plants even as the amount of plants on a m2. A sativa dominant plant need a shorter grow period as a indica type of plant.For example a grow room from 1m2 filled with 9 sativa's would need almost no grow period to fill the space while a indica type of plant needs 3-4 weeks to fill up the same space before you can switch the colock to 12/12. This is why its better to use more indica type of plants on a m2. In this way the sativa's dont have to take so much longer in total as a indica plant.
Sativa type plants grow for another 3-5 weeks after putting the clock on 12/12 while indica's grow for 2-3 weeks after the clock is on 12/12. This is usable info to prodict youre own veg and flo period with a filled up grow room
- 9 weeks
- 10 weeks
The harvest is as big as the weakest link !
Sannie shop counts the harvest in m2 (600 watt) and flowering period. It should not sound weird that sativa plants have longer flowering periods but also the plants with the highest harvest in grams. Indica's will have shorter flowering time as that a sativa has, the length of the flo time and amount off harvest should be counted beside each other. Hybrid plants have the best of both worlds and can give good harvest in a average flo period of around the 10 weeks
Methodes to enhance your results are :
SOG (sea of green) which means that the plants are growed in full force without topping or fimming
Scrog (screen of green) which means the plants are tied down on a scrog net and all the shoots will be on the same height
Climate is the most important link in you re grow room and is for 60-70 % responsible for the weight of you re harvest.
Sannie´s shop advice all our customers to grow on soil with organic nutrients to be sure you get the most natural taste and best harvest.The genetics can be choosed for taste-harvest and experience and last but not least preference. Knowing the strain you are growing will make sure you get the best harvest.
- up to 500 grams
Type of plant means like : indica / sativa / hybride - auto flower
Indica type of plant are short and busy which tend to grow wide instead of tall, indica is shorter in flowering time but needs more veg time to fill up the space.
Indica type of plants gives a more stoned feeling which are preferred by medical users, stoned feeling is more in the body.
Hybrid type :
Hybrid type of plants are hanging between the indica and the sativa type of plants which give them also the properties form both, they grow to medium heights and need more space as there indica sisters, 5-9 plants on 1m2 will be filling up the space nicely.
Because they are crosses between indica and sativa type of plant we as breeder try to collect the best of both worlds in one seeds,
The hybrid's can give a stoned/high or a combination feeling, it depends which type of hybrid you will get, for commercial growing the hybrids are favorite
Sativa type :
Sativa type of plants need space and height and you need less plants on a m2 to fill up the space, she can grow to big heights, the last years there is a hype of growing sativa's in a scrog method.
Sativa's give a good and balanced high and will take you re brain to another dimension instead of locking you into you re bank.
