Always be sure to re-sterilize your grow space after each crop.
Done with expert practice and a willing strain of cannabis seeds, it is not unknown to produce 1 gram of ganja per watt of lighting. That’s an impressive 250g in 7-9 weeks for a 250W light in a small cupboard!
12-12 simply refers to the hours of light and darkness a cannabis plant is exposed to – 12 of each. Normally, a cannabis plant is exposed to an 18-6 light cycle. This tells the cannabis plant conditions are good for growth, and it focuses on building up size and foliage. When light cycle is changed to 12-12 (either naturally or through human intervention), it tells the cannabis the seasons are changing, and it is time to flower. By forcing a 12-12 light period from the start, the cannabis plant goes directly into flowering, in a bid to reproduce. You are essentially tricking the plant into thinking the growing season is coming to an end, so it needs to produce flowers ASAP.
Do you want to go from seed to bud quicker and cheaper? A faster, space saving and economical way to grow is the no veg, seed to flower, 12-12 light cycle method.
There are some haters of this method, but many love it. Those who hate on it often have not actually tried it. It is all about giving it a go and seeing what works for you. Even if you decide against it after trying it, it all helps expand your knowledge as a grower.
Force flowering marijuana from seed can provide excellent quality, resinous flowers, all the while saving space, time, and money. For those with space constraints, it is a win-win!
Plants with less side branching and canopy spread need less space between them, increasing efficiency. As an example: 1x 15-litre pot produces one plant with a large volume and difficult maintenance issues in a cramped space. 4x 3.5-litre pots in the same sized space can produce just as much dried material with the benefit of being easier to rotate, so the whole plant gets 360-degree light. The entire crop is less hassle during maintenance as each plant is 100% accessible and physically easier to move about. There is no need for a separate sprouting and veg space or time wasted on 18-6 vegetation. The seeds can be sprouted under the 12-12 growing lights providing continual flowering plants.
Even though it can grow up to 1m, this cultivar stays very compact while delivering up to 550gr/m2. It grows one tall main cola with large thick fan leaves, typical of Indica strains, and very symmetrical side branches that are enveloped in beautiful buds from top to bottom. The buds can develop reddish tones, flurried with pink and purple while packing frost like crazy, she will be completely covered in strawberry scented trichomes by harvesting time.
Strawberry Pie Auto grows charming green and pinkish buds covered in trichomes from head to toe with thin and long light orange hairs. It has light purple, red and yellow leaves coming out of the buds, making her a truly exceptional and attractive cultivar.
An easy to grow strain suited for pros and beginning growers. She will grow compact and bushy so it’s recommended to perform a little bit of LST and/or some light defoliation to allow the buds to get more airflow and light, encouraging them to develop to their full potential. She prefers light feedings compared to others, and ensure to always maintain appropriate pH levels to not risk growth. To really make her colors and flavor stand out, be sure to flush during the final weeks before harvest. When growing outdoors, we recommend using at least 3 gallon pots or bigger so you get the most out of her and also allow more space to train her.
The effects will be those of a really well-rounded Indica. It won’t leave you too sedated or couch-locked, but will lightly relax your body while also leaving you with a feeling of being centered and alert. A great afternoon or night time smoke, for those days when you need to have a peaceful time alone, perfect for reading a book or watching a movie.
A flavorful combination that smells like a skunky strawberry candy. It is a very complex mix of fruity, cookie dough, and cream with a pinch of fuel that will draw attention anywhere. This tasty combination will have a very sweet flavor of red berries and gas on the inhale that will slowly turn into a more doughy-like flavor of cinnamon, pine, and herbs on the exhale.
