- outdoor, greenhouse
As the first outdoor Sativa designed especially for shorter summers, Early Pearl has been providing Northern growers abundantly with bulky, trichome-frosted buds for over 20 years.
Before the development of early hybrids and acclimatized strains, producing powerful outdoor hemp in Holland and similar climates was difficult. Though Cannabis can grow anywhere, there was a time when seeds of truly potent strains could only be obtained from imported plants. While promising in their genetic potential, these seeds, especially the Sativas, had no chance of succeeding in the Northern climate.
Sensi's three 'Early' strains were developed and released in the mid Eighties to give cool climate growers access to the three most important groups of Cannabis: Early Skunk, Indica dominant Early Girl, and Early Pearl to represent the Sativa side of the family.
Each of those groundbreaking hybrids has its own advantages, and we would hesitate to choose an absolute favourite. If a choice had to be made, Early Pearl is a very strong contender, as she has the potency and solidity of an Indica, the charm of a Sativa and a vibrant, unstoppable zest for life that’s all her own. Furthermore, the Early Pearl line has proven to be first class breeding stock, perfect for adding toughness and stability to other hybrids.
For best results Early Pearl can be started indoors at the end of winter and should be transferred outdoors to a location with maximum exposure to direct sunlight a few weeks after the spring equinox. Allow wide spacing between plants, especially if growing directly in the ground, as these ladies can attain a final height equivalent to a small tree.
Except in cases of continuous rain or long periods of below freezing temperatures at the end of the outdoor season, Early Pearl can be left outdoors to reach full budded, crystal coated maturity.
