Circa 1998, our strain description for Apollo 13 read as follows:
Apollo 13: This skunky girl will make your eyes water with her pungent perfume. The delicate balance of indica/sativa makes Apollo 13 perfect for growers limited to a single strain. The long, fat colas and sparkling, sticky side branches really weigh in at harvest time. This is the type of smoke you can’t hold down; it expands and blasts off from the lungs. The high is clear and cerebral, without a hint of paranoia. Her citrus flavor and happy high make Apollo 13 very popular at parties! Two hits and you can leave your own footprints on the moon. Flowering: 45-55 days. Height: 120-150 cm. Yield: 400 gm/m2.
It’s remarkable the number of references to Apollo 13 that come up in discussions of elite cannabis still today. The plants are prized for the varied, but always outstanding phenotypes. There are breeders today who have continued to cross the Apollos through 5 generations and the resulting seeds are in still great demand.
We salute the underground network of Apollo lovers that kept clones of their finest plants thriving for over a dozen years in this recreation of the classic Apollo 13. We crossed our most highly prized original Apollo 13 female to a P75 male we grew out from vintage seeds MrSoul had stashed away. These are ideal genetics to create the quintessential Apollo 13 with a squat profile with short internodes and thick branches supporting dense, resinous buds that reek of citrus-tropical fruity aromas. An above-average yielder of very potent weed with the clear sativa high – a speedy, thought-provoking, motivational weed for creative minds.
Flowering Time: We recommend 50-60 days of 12/12 flowering
Morphology & Effect: Select for short internodes and strong branches. Bushy plants with fat, dense buds covered in sparkly resin that reeks of citrus and mango.
Average Yield: With proper environment and skills – yields 4-8 ounces of fruity, resin-encrusted colas & side buds per plant can be expected.
Growing Notes: We recommend pruning into multi-headed bushes in large soil containers – four plants per 1000W lamp – then support with stakes or netting.
