Mostly sativa with indica tendencies, Belladonna is an ideal cross for quality and yield. Paradise Seeds introduced this variety in 1999, and since that time it has gained interest with commercial growers.
This variety combines a quick harvest time with a sativa high. In part named for her beauty, Belladonna is a pleasant looking plant with moderate foliage, indica growth patterns, and tight, slightly orange buds. The aroma is fruity and pungent, the taste is also fruity with some spice. Belladonna delivers a trippy high with peaks of hallucinogenic rushes.
No prima donna, Belladonna thrives in all environments. While popular in California and Spain, she has performed well outdoors even in the less hospitable Dutch climate. Her resistance to mold may be in part responsible for her outdoor stamina. Indoors, she does well in a sea of green set-up. Using this method, flowering can begin as soon as the plants are 6 inches tall, because they will continue to grow in the flowring cycle to 2-3 feet. Belladonna is not very bushy, making it possible to grow plants close together.
