Because Amnesia x AK-47 can grow to a height of 200 cm (6.5 feet), it is best to place it in a location away from prying eyes. If you have access to such a garden and you live in an area with a balmy, Mediterranean-like climate, then you should go ahead and rear this strain al fresco. With consistent sunlight exposure, one plant will be able to provide 400 to 600 grams (14 to 21 ounces) of bright green nugs speckled with canary yellow pistils in mid-October.
However, if the outdoor conditions are not ideal, it would be better to propagate it indoors in a dedicated grow room or tent. Maintaining the correct temperature – 21 to 27 degrees Celsius (70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit) – will be easier. Moreover, this strain thrives best in a semi-humid environment, so make sure to keep the relative humidity (RH) within the 40 to 50% range during the 8 to 10-week flowering stage.
When it comes to the choice of growing medium, either organic soil or hydroponics is suitable. Both will help the plant grow vigorously, but the most crucial thing is to monitor its vertical expansion. Sativa-doms such as this one are notorious for doubling their size seemingly overnight, so you must ensure that the top of the plant does not get too close to the grow lamp. Otherwise, you risk light burn, which can compromise the buds’ quality.
If the growing area’s ceiling is too low and moving the lamp or plant is not an option, training techniques should be implemented. Low-stress training, topping, or fimming are all appropriate measures since they encourage the plant to expand horizontally instead of vertically. Additionally, they can expose more bud sites to the light, resulting in more robust development and faster ripening.
Combined with the Screen of Green (ScroG) method, using any of these techniques should limit the plant’s size to 100 cm (40 inches) or less. With sufficient water and nutrients, a bumper crop of 450 grams (16 ounces) per square meter can be expected.
Feminized Amnesiax AK-47 seeds will sprout female plants exclusively because they do not carry the male genes. These beans are the most straightforward option for most growers because sexing and segregating the plants according to gender is no longer necessary. Male plants have already been eliminated from the picture so that the females’ buds will not be pollinated to produce more seeds. Hence, a bountiful harvest of smokable buds is guaranteed.
