Afghan Skunk’s stabilized genetics allows her to produce incredibly uniform plants. She remains short, about 100 cm tall, when grown indoors, but can reach between 200 and 300 cm high outside. Being Indica-dominant, growers must expect a branchy weed that bushes out as she matures. Still, she’s pretty low-maintenance, only requiring minimal fertilizer, pruning, and perhaps some branch support when the bud clusters get too heavy.
In a climate-controlled setting, an Afghan Skunk grown in a Sea of Green (SOG) setup yields up to 500 to 550 grams per square meter. This rapid-flowering strain finishes fruiting in 7 to 9 weeks and can be cultivated in either soil or hydroponic system.
Outdoors, Afghan Skunk thrives under the Mediterranean climate of Southern Europe and the warm, sunny conditions of coastal California. This cannabis variant can also be raised further north in a good summer season since she’s sturdy and mold resistant. Optimal environments in the northern hemisphere can produce between 900 and 1000 grams per plant by October.
