Dominant Origins & Notables
Discovered on the grassland slopes of southern Alaska, this amazing strain not only produces massive, trichome-crusted colas, but provides a creeping, focused buzz which starts off strong and finishes even stronger. Although no one seems to be perfectly clear on where this potent plant came from, speculation states that it was an accidental cross of a Northern California sativa and Russian ruderalis which, post discovery, was crossed with Afghan landrace to make resin-rich 50/50 with indica-dominant traits. As a result, this strain is fit for even the most seasoned of tokers.
Northern California has been famous for producing some of the world’s finest and most award-winning green since the early 70’s, when hippies from the south who were ready to settle down, moved North with their friends to start commune-based plantations of wonder-green on which to raise their families. Though we’re not sure what exact strain gave birth to this Alaskan queen, we are pretty sure that it was an old-school Californian sativa.
The hardiness of ruderalis strains speak for themselves through their pest and disease resistance, their ability to handle extreme temperature fluctuations and their autoflowering nature. What ruderalis has done for this particular strain is provide a hardiness and a compact stature, uncommon to sativas.
So, some happy farmer came across this unlikely creature growing in the foothills of the Denali chain and decided that it wasn’t strong enough, didn’t have enough of a kick and therefore needed some good old-fashioned indica bred into it. What other choice was there but the ancient and ever-reliable Afghani?
Afghani is a pure landrace indica, meaning that it has been isolated and developed over time, in its natural habitat, making it as pure as the Hindu Kush mountain snow. She has won awards across the planet and is known as one of the strongest and highest-yielding indicas out there. Utilized by breeders for its heavy, resinous bud production, ease of cultivation and for its soothing and sedating narcotic effects, this is an absolutely perfect combo strain for our hardy sativa.
Although this powerful little strain did not develop the autoflowering gene, characteristic of ruderalis crosses, these marvelous marijuana seeds have been feminized to ensure a stress-free horticultural experience. Feminization is a process through which female plants are stressed early to produce pollen of their own. When ready, this pollen is collected and used to paint the nodes of the seed-crop, ensuring near 100% female genetics. What this means to growers is that the chances of a male popping up and ruining your crop is next to zero.
What you can expect when you grow Matanuska Tundra Fem strain seeds is a perfectly balanced cross with indica-leaning characteristics, tonnes of goopy buds and a 16-20% THC content. This powerful pot will uplift, focus, soothe, relax and, before long, she’ll have you locked-down and off to the land of sleep on a ride through everything that a good weed should be. Another point worth noting is that she carries with her an approximate 2% CBD content, not much, but effectively taking the edge off of some of the punchier points of the stone and providing lasting relief from a multitude of maladies.

Because of her indica traits and compact nature (about 2-2.5 feet), this unlikely strain lends well to the Sea of Green (SOG), a method through which plants are tricked into budding after only a couple weeks of veg, then placed together under lights to form a canopy of buds. Undergrowth and shading fan-leaves are pruned away, and because of the apical dominance, a wavy ‘sea’ of big beautiful colas is what you end up with.
Due to the hardy nature of this strain, outdoor cultivation can be just as rewarding, given she’s got plenty of light and warmth and that RH levels can be kept at a minimum come flower-time.
Taking a bit longer to finish, but certainly worth the wait, your indoor ocean should produce approximately 12-14 oz per m2 in about 8 to 12 weeks. For an outdoor show, harvest can be anywhere between late-September to late-October, depending on the weather, and if the right conditions are met, will yield approximately 14 oz per plant.
Sanitize your room, set up 600-1000 watt HPS or full-spectrum LED lights and get ready for some serious buds. This is certainly no ocean of oregano, as Matanuska Tundra Fem strain will mature into some of the most resinous and trichome-plated weed anywhere to be seen.
Though this plant can handle a lot, you’ll want to ensure that RH levels remain at around 40-50% during the veg and flower cycles, then taper it down to around 18-20% for the final stages to insure against any mold developing in those dense buds. Keep it a bit on the warmer side of comfy, at around 70-80F, to create the ideal atmosphere for this lovely lady.
Pruning away any overlapping fan-leaves and energy-sucking undergrowth is a necessity, but you can always use those lower shoots as clones to start your next ocean, so be delicate in your snipping and have your rooting-kit on hand.
Given that you live in a warm, sunny and dry location, these wonderful weed seeds will do just fine. If you’ve got a greenhouse, there’s no reason not to employ the same methods as an indoor grow, just be extra vigilant in monitoring humidity levels. Greenhouses can get pretty dank pretty quick, literally cooking whatever’s inside, so ensure proper ventilation and your crop should be just as glorious as any indoor show.
