Frisian Duck is one of the most unusual feminized cannabis seed varieties ever seen by Dutch Passion. The plants grow with a stabilised natural leaf deformity. This produces cannabis plants without the iconic and instantly recognisable cannabis leaf shape. Instead the leaves have a webbed appearance similar to the footprint of a ducks foot. As Frisian Duck grows from feminized seed she is very difficult to recognise as a cannabis plant. It’s an ideal strain for any grower looking for an extra stealthy cannabis seed variety.
This weeks Frisian Duck was grown in central Europe by ‘Austrian Alex’. He grew the Frisian Duck in the corner of his garden behind his garden BBQ and next to some conifer plants. Even though the Frisian Duck reached 2 metres tall she hid herself easily among the natural plant life. As you can see from the pictures, the Frisian Duck grew with the unusual leaf shape from being a seedling. The weird leaf shape continues throughout the life cycle of Frisian Duck.
The Frisian Duck seeds were created specifically to allow the outdoor/greenhouse cannabis grower to grow cannabis with more privacy and less worry. During vegetive growth this variety looks more like a nettle or a mint plant than a cannabis plant. During this stage of growth you could walk straight past Frisian Duck and not realise that it is a cannabis plant. Without the normal cannabis leaf shape you simply don't notice the plant, and nor would anyone else. Frisian Duck feminized seeds are ideally suited to the urban cannabis grower that likes to hide a plant or two in their garden, back yard, patio or greenhouse. The low odour and light aroma of Frisian Duck is another good reason to grow this variety, she does have a light cannabis smell at harvest but not as strong as other varieties.
As well as being stealthy enough for growing on and around your own property, many cannabis ‘guerrilla growers’ also find Frisian Duck a great cannabis variety for outdoor cultivation. Guerrilla growers often plant their cannabis in woods, hillsides, riverbanks, unused field corners, waste urban land etc. The unusual Frisian Duck leaf appearance means that this variety is less likely to be noticed by other people, especially when the plant is in vegetive growth. Frisian Duck only really starts to look like cannabis in the last few weeks when the blooms are large and heavy, but by this stage plant is nearly ready to harvest. With traditional cannabis varieties the plants are easily recognisable even when small.
Many outdoor cannabis growers like to germinate their feminized seeds indoors under 2-3 weeks of artificial light. This can be an 18/6 light schedule (18 hours of light followed by 6 hours of darkness) or a 24/0 schedule. Starting the cannabis seedlings indoors protects them from the worst of the weather and pests while they are young and vulnerable, it gives your seeds a head start.
Which soil you should use
Transplant your seedlings to their outdoor grow location and if necessary add plenty of supermarket soil to improve grow quality and nutrition. Use plenty of slug and snail pellets around the base of your plant to protect it. Some outdoor marijuana growers also use garden wire fencing (‘chicken wire’) to create a small protective area around the base of their plant. This protects it fr
om grazing animals such as deer, rabbits and goats.
Frisian Duck grows to a final height of around 2 metres tall. Often the plant produces buds with a hint of blue/purple. Yields can be generous especially in full-sunlight growing conditions. In this weeks grow, the Frisian Duck reached a good size of around 2 metres with several long blooms. The buds finished with a beautiful blue/purple color and a frosty finish. The aroma is a little lighter than other varieties, with hints of tropical fruit, citrus and hash. The smoke is refreshing and relaxing with a satisfying feel-good effect. It’s also an easy cannabis seed variety to grow, she clones easily and the cloned plants share the wonderfully innocent leaf shape.
Frisian Duck was selectively bred to have an unusual appearance and low odor. But it’s also an easy and uncomplicated outdoor cannabis variety to grow. No special growing skills
are required, plant this variety in a good growing location and she grows herself. You just need to turn up for the harvest, it’s a robust feminized seed variety that can grow in a wide variety of conditions from Northern Europe to the tropics. If you have hesitated to grow cannabis, and wanted a unique stealth cannabis variety which is easy to grow then this is the variety for you.
