Amnesia 5 is currently available as feminized seeds but not regular (unsexed). That means there is no need to identify the plants’ genders and separate them. These seeds are 99% guaranteed to sprout female plants, so there won’t be any pollen-producing males to contaminate the flowers and lower the yield.
Indoor growing is the best option for this strain. A grow room or tent makes it possible to control the temperature, relative humidity (RH), and other factors much more easily. The optimal temperature is 21 to 27 degrees Celsius (70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit). Meanwhile, the RH should be maintained at 60 to 70% from the seedling to vegetative stages, then lowered to 40 to 55% during flowering.
As for the growing medium, both hydroponics and soil are suitable. The former can encourage the plant to vegetate more vigorously because its roots can access the nutrients directly through water. But if you want to enhance this strain’s unique terpene profile even more, you should use organic soil. In either case, the budding period lasts 8 to 10 weeks, and one square meter of grow space can yield an impressive 350 to 400 grams (12 to 14 ounces) of dense, resinous buds.
That said, outdoor cultivation is also possible if the climate is right. Being a Sativa, Amnesia 5 prefers a warm, semi-humid location with ample sunshine. Each plant can grow to a maximum height of about 180 cm (6 feet) and produce 400 grams (14 ounces) of usable bud. Although it has strong resistance against pests and diseases, it can be a bit sensitive to the cold. It is best to grow it in a pot instead of directly in the ground so that you can bring it indoors if the temperature drops.
