Amnesia Lemon is available to buy as feminized or regular seeds. Regular beans have a 50/50 chance of sprouting male and female plants. When raised side by side, the male will pollinate the female’s blossoms to produce more seeds. They are the better option for breeding and cloning because they are the closest genetically to the mother plant. Feminized seeds, on the other hand, are more suitable for amateur gardeners since they are virtually guaranteed to spawn an all-female crop dedicated to generating smokable buds only.
Due to this strain’s petite size, it is a joy to grow in an indoor setting. It will flourish best in organic soil that contains beneficial microorganisms to ensure a healthy root environment. This type of growing medium is also ideal for enhancing the terpene profile, resulting in top-quality buds with a more intense flavor and aroma. Moreover, higher terpene content boosts the nugs’ recreational and medicinal impacts because of the “entourage effect”.
The simplest way to maximize the yield is by raising multiple plants simultaneously – a setup known as the Sea of Green (SoG). Seven to nine plants per square meter can easily supply 550 grams (19 ounces) of buds as long as the environmental factors are maintained at optimum levels. For this strain, the most favorable temperature range is between 21 and 27 degrees Celsius (70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit), while the relative humidity (RH) should be kept at 40 to 50% during the 8 to 9-week flowering period.
It should be noted that an SoG configuration tends to raise the temperature and RH inside the grow room. Packing several plants close together in a confined area can trap excess moisture that could invite pathogens like mold and mildew. Therefore, pruning and trimming non-essential leaves and stems should be part of the maintenance routine. In addition, an oscillating fan would be helpful to promote air circulation, as well as an efficient ventilation system. Don’t forget to install a carbon filter to lessen the plants’ strong odor.
Outdoor cultivation is also pretty straightforward if there is an appropriate garden area where the smell would not attract unwanted attention. This plant can yield an impressive 600 grams (21 ounces) of aromatic, resinous bud in the first half of October when grown in a temperate Mediterranean-Esque climate with plenty of sunshine. Cool nighttime temperatures can bring out muted purple hues in some of the leaves and flowers. The unusual coloration adds bag appeal, but it will not change the flavor or effects.
