I had a plant called Australian Bastard Cannabis, I got free from Marc Emery back in 98-99.....
It had a parsley sort of leaf.....the one I managed to grow out was a male.....
Any of you guy DownUnder know anything about this???
I wonder if this is likely to be the same as the strain referred to as "mongy weed" among some of the aussie growers ? i have heard of ABC and kind of assumed they were the same thing by the descriptions given of each plant. If this is the case there are a few people around OZ who are cultivating this strain but not many. I have tried for a while to find a source of ABC seeds but had assumed they either died off or were kept to those in the know. I had dreams of crossing this with an arrotment both indica and sativa DOM to see what kind of bizzare babies could be formed ! i would love to see a Purple Erkle x ABC good luck ZAKA i hope that you are able to leave a few buds on there to self pollenate soas to keep a few seeds of the "pure" ABC before beginning your crosses.
shame this wasn't up a month or so ago or i could have got a mate to help with some Columbian pollen, i reckon they could have been a nice mix
edit: i would love to see some shots of more developed flowers of this strain if there are any avaliable ? NVM found some on my own
edit #2: after some digging i found the old info i had seen on the topic which will give you some background info on ABC / Bindi HERE
i will grab an except for you guys here as it is in a hidden forum so registration would be required.
In its native state Mongy Weed is not very good for hemp or THC. It is a weed. The couple who found it began to cross these original Mongy Weed seeds with their own plants and were having some success until they were beaten by age, and new living circumstances saw an end to their love of growing cannabis. And as I had shown so much interest, this is when I was given their seeds and began to grow Mongy Weed for myself.
Most of their early crosses were with pure sativa and sativa dominant plants of unknown origin. As were mine. the first known strain I crossed with was Durban Poison. Mongy Weed was totally unknown as cannabis at this stage and i was able to grow it just about anywhere undetected which meant that I was able to introduce many different cannabis strains into the gene pool with relative ease. This mixed seed stock I called Mongy Madness.
it wasn't that many years after this ( stupid me, it was obvious in hind sight ) I had people trying to sell me Mongy Madness as Bindi weed, and I am reading reports in the paper about new "mutant super weed" busts.
finally most important of all the piece that ties the puzzle together
Mongy Madness faded into past knowledge for most people as far as I knew and I had heard little more until recently when I got a computer and learned of the Mongy Madness seed that Marc Emery had taken back to Canada and named australian bastard cannabis or ABC.
and yes ducksfoot and ABC/Mongy/Bindi are different mutants all together
