Kilimanjaro is the name given to two different strains: one Indica and the other Sativa.
The Sativa strain is grown in the Kenyan hills near the eastern side of Kilimanjaro. The plant is believed to have been cultivated by the indigenous tribes, who called it the "elephant flattener"Â in their native tongue. World of Seeds offers this strain in normal and feminized seeds. A Sativa that hits hard with a THC count of up to 18%, it can provide a very intense psychedelic cerebral high that may be overwhelming to some.
The Sativa Kilimanjaro is most comfortable when grown in an outdoor setup but can also do well in a greenhouse, thanks to its strong resistance to mold. After flowering for nine to ten weeks, it will yield up to 600 grams per plant. If grown indoors, it yields up to 350 grams per square meter. Reaching up to two and a half meters in height, Kilimanjaro should not be left in the vegetative period for more than four weeks.
The mostly Indica strain called Kilimanjaro is bred by Soma Seeds Â who previously called this strain Soma 1+. It is a cocktail of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, Big Bud, and Afghani Hawaii. Instilling creativity and upbeat energy, this strain also provides a soft body buzz. Growing the Indica Kilimanjaro successfully requires some experience, but it can do well both indoors and out. Like its Sativa counterpart, the strain needs nine to ten weeks to complete its flowering cycle but yields less. Yields for this strain may be as low as 15 to 20 grams.
