How to Grow Chemhead OG Strain Seeds
Short, stocky, bushy plants with a medium stretch from the branches means indoor growers will need to engage in occasional bouts of pruning to keep these cannabis plants at bay. Growing these feminised seeds (regular seeds and autoflowering seeds not currently offered) indoors is pretty straightforward apart from that, with both SOG and SCROG growing methods working well and respectable yields expected in a flowering time of as little as nine weeks from germination.
