Worm castings and kelp meal with lower light?
Perhaps cooler lights off I’m just throwing it out there mimicking fall conditions for it’s area? Wish I could help you ripen those seeds perhaps when she’s done hang her where is cool and dark may lengthen the process as well these are my best ideas for you to mull over best of luck bro!!!!! Peace Buddy!!!

Still not done. Smells incredible. Can't believe it hasn't hermed and still flowering. More seeds are popping. Started a new diary for them.

I would say that the genetics are partially wild. Most of the time it is small little grow operations up in the hills. But you gotta think its always outdoors and there is always seeds in the stuff. There is a ton of open air pollination going on within the entire region. These genetics end up in these areas from many decades ago and then they kind of get "land locked" in these small pockets and they become adapted over many generations to the specific light and grow conditions. Yes, there is definitely intervention from Man but so much time has passed in these remote grow areas that evolution has started to take effect. The laws of natural selection start to set in and only the strongest and most adapted specimens will become successful in passing their offspring forward. Im a Science nerd so I love thinking about this kind of stuff. I often ask myself in regards to my Fijian strain... Where did the parent gene stock come from? Was it some bagseed brought over from a hippie in the 60s? Maybe it goes back even further... Did the seed stock come from centuries ago when the Fijian Islands were used as sugar cane slave encampments? Maybe it was an old hemp strain from back during the pirate times? The use of hemp and cannabis goes back literally thousands of years so who knows where the origins actually came from. I would think it must take many generations in order for a strain to become adapted to a completely different location and environment. Same thing with your Columbian strain. How long have those columbians been growing that stuff? Do the origins of that stuff come from African sativa landraces brought over during colonial times? It's all really fun to think about.
I'm from Fiji and our cannabis came from India, when the British brought Indians to work on the fields. People so far have no idea what they're doing in terms of cultivation so yeah, you could say these plants (all of some sort of Indian sativa based on appearance) are still pretty wild!
