Hey DGC, so I have a question that definitely seems a bit noobish, but I often hear Guru reference “equatorial sativas” in discussing outlier genetics in the light spectrum and DLI that a particular cannabis cultivar demands. I get the idea behind what he’s saying most of the time, but there’s only one problem in my mind- what is an equatorial sativa? These days we’re all buying badass genetics from Seeds Here Now that include insane crosses of every flavor of the taste rainbow, I feel like I as a grower often overlook the lineage of whatever it is that I’m growing, beyond the parent strains that produced said cross. I instead just respond to the plant based on how it pops out of the medium, it’s pretty easy to identify a lanky plant vs. a bushy plant in early veg, but perhaps I could be a better grower if I better understood the genetic history of the specific cultivars I happen to be working with. I have to be careful to use “I” statements and not incriminate the whole DGC into being as apathetic as I am. It’s not that I’m not interested in the subject, I just don’t really know where to start. It’s like cannabis anthropology!
Much love and I appreciate anybody who’s able to chime in.
