My plant sprouted on April 27, 2018. This is my favourite strain to grow and my favourite to smoke. I hope that I get some purple colour this time. I am going to employ the LST (low-stress training) grow technique. The technique consists of carefully bending the young plants’ branches and tying them in position as they grow outwards. This generates new spaces for several new shoots to emerge and produces greater yields.

I used a 19 L pot, provided 20 hours of light/day, controlled the temperature at 27 °C, the air humidity at 10%, the pH at a value of 6 and gave the plant 0.57 L of water/day. The plant reached a height of 16 cm after the first 2 weeks under this regimen.
