How to Grow Banana Kush Strain
Growing Banana Kush feminized seeds is notoriously difficult, but by no means impossible. It thrives best in an indoor environment where it can receive a constant flow of light but can be grown outdoors if you live in a warm and sunny country. Despite its indica-dominance, it has many sativa-dominant growth characteristics and may stretch a little taller than other indicas if not properly maintained. One great method for limiting plant height, while simultaneously boosting productivity, is via a SCROG or SOG set-up and this strain will also adapt well to hydroponics, which are worth considering if you’re farming for commercial purposes.
Banana Kush cannabis seeds indoor flowering time is eight-nine weeks from germination or early October for outdoor growers – a pretty short flowering period for a feminized strain – and another excellent method for increasing its production rates is by boosting CO2 levels and ensuring good air circulation during this period. If steps like these are taken, Banana Kush yields can easily reach over 500g per/m2 indoors or up to 600g per plant inside. They’re certain to brighten up your grow space as these plants are positively electric in appearance, boasting fat neon-green nugs with hints of highlighter yellow and curly, amber-orange trichomes.
