From Nirvana's site:

K2 is a long-time reliable Dutch commercial strain because of it being a bit easier to cultivate than the “white” strains.

*I* didn't say it wasn't a white strain. I quoted a reputable seed breeder.

I did exactly as you suggested and Googled it. Of the replies, with the exception of one, each said clearly that it is easier to grow then WHITE STRAINS. Several did say that the strain is related to White Widow, but in the same paragraph, each also said what I quoted above.

Obviously there is some disagreement about what this strain is. By far, the wording of it's description is that it is NOT a white strain, only related to a white strain.

I quoted Nirvana in the quote I referenced. The statement that I found from several seed suppliers was that K2 was "easier to grow than the white strains". The wording would lead anyone to believe that by saying that, it would exclude it from white strains.

One seed supplier in the UK did refer to it as a white strain, but the others said it was a "relative" of white widow, but each said "it is easier to grow than white strains".

Based on this, what do you think? If a strain is "related" to a white strain, does that make it a white strain or is it possible for it to not be a white strain even though related to one?

What exactly is the requirement for a strain to be called a white strain and why are these breeders saying that it isn't one?

Thanks HGB, that helps clear it up some. I asked you this in the below post, but what criteria has to be present in a strain to make it a "White" strain and not only related to one?

go to 77seeds.com i have grown k2 - bought it from nirvana in fact. it sugars up like a widow and grows similar. something like misty or easy rider. on the back of the nirvana seed package; all the white family are listed. k2 is included. hope this clears it up

say stoney,

did a bit of research on this and found a ton of info. alot of conflicting as well so had to read between the lines at times

this is the way i understand the diff.

phenos from the white family have a white name like whiterino,white russian ect. but when crossed with a non white family pheno the off spring then become related to the white family and carry part of the gene's....

guess my white russian x white whillow will be from the white family and my white willow x k2 will be related

ching ching

grow on

Hey HGB, thanks for the information. It's interesting that the "White" strains have such a place in the world of weed.

What's the history on your White Willow? I haven't run across it before.

White Willow is named after Soma's daughter who is quite a strong human being which reflects thisstrong plant. A cross of White Widow and Afghani-Hawaiian this plant has massive buds and large THC crystals. The color of the leaves is a dark almost bluish green. The taste is sweet like some special desert. The smell is Afghani-sweet. It takes a while to finish so again you need experience for this one. Quite a good yield. Strong high.

That sounds real interesting. Where is the best place to get seeds for it?

Wow!

I'm going to have to wait until I've paid for my new well.

Ouch!

This sounds like one **** of a strain. Maybe I'll wait until you harvest and cure HGB and see what you think of the weed after smoking it.

Or have you smoked it already?

Edit: Also, I looked all over their site but didn't see how many seeds are provided in a purchase. ???

Sure, go ahead and tease me. Ha!

I have to deal with this monstrously expensive hole in the ground first. This is the first new well I've ever had to pay for. The last as well he tells me. I'm not sure if he meant the longevity of the well or me. The guy tells me, you need a new this, you need a new that.

Holy crap! Tomorrow night, I should have lots of water and almost no money.

I do have a shit load of weed tho. I'm good.
