Flo Strain

Flo nugs give off a uniquely sweet and spicy scent and tend to taste as they smell. Flo has a distinct and intense Nepalese Temple Hash-like taste that fills up the entire mouth. However, the skunky and earthy flavors are met with a mild citrus sweetness which mitigates the sharper tones. Flo fosters a long, consistent high that balances motivational sativa effects with a heavier indica stoned. Users report that Flo makes them feel uplifted, euphoric, energized, happy, relaxed, and creative. With THC levels reported at up to 18%, Flo is a perfect option for an afternoon or morning smoke.

Lineage of Flo

Infamous cannabis breeder DJ Short helped launch the Dutch Passion coalition in 1998 with the help of his "Blue family." The family included famous strains like Blueberry, Blue Velvet, and Flo. With its sativa-leaning genetics, Flo quickly became known as the most charismatic of the strain siblings. Flo is a combination from Oaxacan Mexican sativa, Thai sativa, and Afghani indica strain. These landrace strains were cultivated by DJ Short to express their pure genetic origins.

Growing Flo

Flo is a fortunate plant for any grower to have in their grow house. Flo tends to prefer moderate amounts of fertilizer and can express either diesel or fruity phenotypes. Flo can repeatedly produce a bountiful harvest with either the multi-branch plants or sea of green methods.

The potential for multiple harvests renders Flo a wise choice for greenhouse production indoors.

When grown indoors, Flo will flower in approximately 45 to 55 days. Individual plants can produce between 25 to 30 grams per plant. Flo plants can grow well outdoors, as well. Flo plants finish flowering between the end of September and early November. Flo plants generally mature fast, and plants quickly grow tall.

The strain's ability to be harvested at multiple times creates a flow of blooming buds, giving the strain its name. Flo is available through various online seed banks and through any other businesses that sell clones. Due to the strain's high availability as a clone, Flo has taken over regional markets in the US, including Denver

Flo flower can display a myriad of colors. The plants are marked with pink tones throughout the leaves and violet to blue-red flower leaves and calyxes. Buds have tighter structures and are coated with a healthy layer of crystallization.

Where to find Flo

While Flo's popularity has waned since the 1990's, the strain still influences the cannabis world. The strain remains popular throughout Colorado, Washington, Michigan, Arizona, Illinois, and Nevada.
