Growing Grandaddy Black Feminized Seeds
At 95% Indica, you’d expect no less than your typically straightforward Indica experience when growing Grandaddy Black Feminized seeds - and you’d be bang on the money!
This herb tends to remain short and stout, rarely reaching much taller than 1 meter even in optimal conditions, which makes maintaining these beauties an absolute breeze - not to mention setting these plants up perfectly for an indoor grow room.
Indoor cultivation is definitely the way to go with this ganja unless you’re fortunate enough to have regular access to balmy Mediterranean climates like California or Spain. In these idyllic climes, you’ll see the biggest yields, without a doubt, but without such luck, an indoor setup that mimics this environment will be best - maintain a temperature between 21 and 26°C (or 69.8 to 78.8°F), and relative humidity (RH) levels between 40 and 50% in the flowering stage and you’ll be golden.
As for the growing medium, Grandaddy Black Fem is known to favor soil - in particular organic soil, which will help draw out the full terpene profile for maximum flavor, aroma and medical efficacy - but will also thrive in a hydroponic rig.
Regardless of where you grow her, these stunners are going to require a little TLC in the form of regular trimming and pruning of extraneous leaves (no matter how gorgeous they are!). This will allow for maximum light penetration and airflow to all your crop’s budding regions, and promote healthier plants while mitigating the risk of disease or pests causing damage.
If you’re able to, using the Sea of Green (SoG) setup will also go a long way towards your crop reaching their full potential.
Overall, expect between 8 and 10 weeks of flowering before it’s harvest time. Indoor growers, you’re looking at anywhere up to 600 grams per meter squared for your efforts. Those cultivating Grandaddy Black Feminized outdoors, meanwhile, can reap up to 800 grams per plant.
A hybrid strain born for evening or indulgent weekend consumption, Grandaddy Black Feminized is more than just a stunning specimen of Indica goodness, alright.
An absolute joy to cultivate that even the less experienced growers in the cannabis community can easily bring to a healthy and satisfyingly abundant harvest, these buds scream bag appeal in every way.
Fans of fruity flavors and, in particular, grape ganja - this is one strain you can’t afford not to try.
