Strain Review: Steel City Blues by Mephisto Genetics


Auto Blues is a project to put Mephisto Genetics favorite ever strain, The blues into Auto format. The blues or pukkas as it’s known locally, was a strain they knew very well.

Although little known outside of the U.K. The strain has been around since the early 90’s, and Mephisto Genetics believe is a sister to the now famous U.K exodus cheese. The growth structure, flower formation, leaf type, and smell in Veg is identical. However when the Blues is flowered, it is intensely smelly, but with a fruity edge as opposed to cheesy. It makes your taste buds tingle and is powerful, it raises the hairs on your arms and if you’re not careful will completely zombify you.

They crossed it to their Purple Indica breeding auto, and there began the fun process of working the strain into an automatic. The F3’s displayed frequent purple phenotypes, Mephisto Genetics have chosen to mostly breed to the Green Phenotypes as they more closely match the mother Photoperiod. She has tight internodes, and can form long colas. Will branch well and excel in growth if given the space.

This variety is another stinker, so take care with odor control for your safety. They plan to do further breeding work involving U.K strains and will use this as a base.
