Greenie Thumbs: Legend’s Ultimate Indica (LUI)

Legend’s Ultimate Indica is one of my favorite strains to grow. Very consistent but it does have a wee bit of an autoflowering problem (thanks to it’s Sweettooth roots). Chimera from Chimera Seeds did an awesome write up about Legend’s Ultimate Indica (LUI) in High Times back in 2005, check it out.

If you’re a pot grower or smoker in British Columbia and you haven’t heard of LUI, check your map — you likely aren’t in BC. LUI, or Legends’ Ultimate Indica, is one of the most widely grown varieties in British Columbia, and for a good reason: its massive yield of trichome-covered buds. It is truly the workhorse of the BC pot scene.

LUI is a mostly indica variety derived from BC and Californian genetics, and was first produced in Switzerland as a collaborative effort between Red of Legends Seeds and Breeder Steve of Spice of Life Seeds. Red had been in Switzerland for a few months, working with Steve in the greenhouses and designing the SOL indoor-breeding facility where the latest version of Sweet Tooth was being produced. An especially resinous male had been chosen from the second generation of the ongoing backcross project to the famous BC indica Grapefruit. This study’s goal was to father the third backcross population, to be known as Sweet Tooth #3. There happened to be some unused space near one end of the expansive flowering room, and Red suggested filling the unused lighted area with the extra Ortega plants hanging around the vegetative room, in an attempt to hybridize his two favorite indicas. Ortega was a California indica clone brought to Switzerland by an old grow guru, and it had found a special place in the hearts and lungs of all those working at the SOL factory.

When the seed crop was harvested, Red flew back to BC and immediately set about starting some of these new seeds. He and the crew popped 100 beans to get a look at what variation had come from the test cross. He gave away hundreds of them to his loyal customers, eager to get unbiased feedback on this new line. Everybody’s results were the same: This was one beefy lady. Growers consistently found huge top colas of dense, frosty lime-green nuggets. Whether grown in soil or hydroponics, in Sea of Green gardens or larger tree-style grows, everybody seemed to have the same extravagantly yieldy results.

Notes about Legend’s Ultimate Indica

Aka: LUI
Taste/Smell: Spicy, hashy, and sweet.
Shape: Two main phenotypes, one bushy and the other columnar
Height Indoor: 0.5 – 1 meter
Height Outdoor: 1 – 1.5 meters
Flower-time Indoor: 49-63 days, phenotype dependent. (Expect 60-65 days)
Flower-time Outdoor: Late September to mid October in Northern hemisphere.
Yield Indoor: Heavy with dense flowers.
Yield Outdoor: Can be very high.

Legends Ultimate Indica is a combination of our two favorite indicas. This F1 hybrid was mothered by an unreleased Ortega plant from California. The Ortega`s heavy indica traits shine through with tight buds and an extremely stoney finish. The father, a second backcross Sweet Tooth from Spice of Life Seeds, adds the sweet and pungent flavor Breeder Steve strains are know for.

Keep it green Greenies and O.V.E.R.G.R.O.W.!!!
