Chocolate Mint OG develops lovely shades of blue and purple during flowering with lower night temperatures. The early vegetative growth is incredibly vigorous and so if space is at a premium indoors it is advisable not to veg. for too long. Once into flowering some training will definitely be necessary to support the weight of the buds on its long branches. The inter-nodal bud-site spacing is quite long and so this allows for good light penetration into the inner buds.
Chocolate Mint OG manages to combine the delicious flavours of chocolate and mint in one marijuana package! It was created by crossing an Emerald OG with a Grandaddy Purple. This is an indica-dominant strain with 80% indica genetics.
Grown indoors harvests yield between 350 – 500 gr/m 2 in a flowering time of 58 – 63 days. Outdoors these plants can grow to 3 or 4 meters in height and yield between 1 and 2 kilos each dried weight. The flavour and aroma is very deep and rich; chocolate, mint, pine, spices with some acidity present too. THC production is very high and falls within the range 22% – 26% with low 0.1% CBD. The effect is very, very powerful and is not recommended for novices. It is both physical and cerebral and long-lasting. It is definiteley a night-time smoke unless free from all cares and duties for the day!
They were oval, hairy and covered with a really impressive resin layer. We washed roots fifteen days before harvest. In about nine weeks, buds were as hard as stones.
The effect is very fast and fulminating and can be appreciated at any time.
Branches abounded and the use of training stakes was required since the beginning. This strain grows quickly with a high number of lateral branches and shoots. Its leaves have a very intense green colour.
From time to time, we added extra rope and stakes. The plants were taller and more leafy than most of the strains we had in our grow room. From the very first weeks, we used a specific fertiliser and booster for the fruiting phase.
The leaves gradually took on a darker colour and, at the end of flowering, some plants were completely purple. Pistils piled up on the countless shoots and the first flowers began to form.
This strain can be grown easily, provided that you are able to control its development. You only need to avoid excessive humidity, because it is sensitive to mildew. As for its organoleptic properties, it gives off an intense and inebriating aroma; its taste is special, very strong, somewhat earthy and sweet, with touches of mint and spices.
Germination and growth
Indoors, under lamps, yield usually ranges between 400 and 600 g/m2. Outdoors, the dry yield per plant can even exceed one kilogram. The Indica/Sativa ratio of this strain is 80/20 and its THC concentration may reach as much as 26% in some specimens.
After this short period of development, the explosive growth of this strain was already perceptible. We moved them to larger 11-litre pots and added an extra dose of root booster during the first days. Then we gradually added a growth fertiliser.
