I've got now TAM #3, #15 and #25 flowering together at 5 and a half weeks. After last experience growing #25 and #27 I made some conclusions, #25 appearing to be more aromatic than #27, that was my preferred plant until now.

So I still keep the four plants and I love each of them. It will be difficult to choose a winner.

This is just a branch of #3. This plant is the shorter and bushier of the bunch. I'll try to get a full picture but i believe that if I move her much, she'll collapse.

This is #15. Grew like a monster and produced a triple tip that looks great. I show the full plant, the top and a lateral branch.

I'll keep posting as soon as I have something new to show.
Sweet smokes.

These are the TAM #3 and #15. #3 is short, full of branches and is closer to get ready, while #15 still needs a couple of weeks. The smell of that one is great, bitter, similar to Thai-Angola's but stronger.

8 and a half weeks.

This is Thai Angola Mextiza #25. This one makes some good spears, as most of them do.

These plants need two or three more weeks than Mextiza to mature, but they produce quite more also.

Now I've grown all selected four plants at the same time, I'll be ready to decide which one to keep. Right now I am tempted to keep a Thai Angola leaning one because of the strong bitter aroma (#15, #25) but I'll have to wait until a proper cure to compare.

It would be a dream to see these plants growing outdoors, maybe I'll give them a chance, but they are made for a different weather.

Hope all is well. Curious to see how things are turning out.
Things go well, thanks. I'm currently smoking them, but I don't know which of the two specimens to keep. Both of them are great. I've got some pictures of the buds, unfortunately the biggest ones are already gone. I'll post pictures soon of one of the plants, I've got a couple with 7 weeks and they just have 2 or three more to go.

It is frikking difficult to take good pictures of the dry buds, but I've tried.

Those buds look amazing. How is the high?

This high is my favourite one. They hit, they really do, but you can smoke all day and feel energetic and active because it doesn't weight in the body. I cut them at about 9 weeks under LEDs, but I guess that if I let them mature for a couple or three more weeks they will produce more and hit even stronger and with stronger taste. These buds never stop growing in the plant, like Indicas and hybrids do.

Aromas are exotic and unique, but not easy to describe. Floral, varnish, with a bitter fuel-like background. Nothing to do with the stink of the common commercial strains.

The Thai Angola mom I used needed about 12 weeks to mature under LEDs, but I prefer this one. More flavor, more effect. Is like a happy sweet drunkeness.

Congrats @Ailalelo ! Looking good

Btw, regarding positive effect of equatorial landrace sativas, do you guys have an opinion on best Kelvin light value for effect?

(I know 3000K and such is best for yield in flower, but I don't mind low yields and low potency, going after pure effect, with the constraint of growing South American / Mexican landraces indoors under LED).

Great question. Interested myself.

I use 3500ºK for all the process and I get a good result. I wouldn't change it. By the way, these weeds I grow aren't pure equatorial landrace sativas. They are way more domesticated than that but their effect is much better than any commercial sativa you can find. In my experience.

Greetings, got some OHz x 70's Oaxaca x 70's Oaxaca seeds from a good friend. Should be interesting to grow these out one day soon. Let the skull hunt begin. Happy growing.
