Afghani’s impressive adaptability to windswept mountain slopes is evident in her offspring’s structure. Like her parent, she remains of medium height and exhibits vigorous lateral growth, making her ideal for indoor cultivation.
The strain grows well in soil, but the best choice is to combine the Sea of Green (SOG) technique with a hydroponic system. Trimming and pruning during the late vegetative phase through some parts of the flowering period will also boost her bud production.
Although strongly resistant to mold and mildew, giving Afghani Kush some stress training, trimming away unnecessary fan leaves, and having ample air circulation help guarantee disease-free growth. The lower branches also need access to enough light for the plant to develop more flowering sites. Note that this strain’s bud clusters may need to be supported as she heads closer to harvest.
Afghani Kush takes 7 to 8 weeks for her flowers to fully develop and be ripe for picking. On average, one square foot yields up to 450 grams of buds. She also grows well outdoors, especially in places with a warm and sunny climate. Crop gathering occurs around late September to early October in the northern hemisphere or March to early April down south, with each plant can produce up to 600 grams of sticky nugs.
