Banana Kush grows into a gorgeous marijuana with hybrid qualities. The plant grows quite bushy like a true Indica but also stretches like a Sativa, reaching more than six feet in height when left to its own devices. To unlock this strain’s impressive bud production, the key is to ensure it is supplied with a balanced diet of nutrients and optimal growing conditions.
Indoor grow rooms or greenhouses may be a better option for Banana Kush growers who reside in areas where the weather can be erratic and often inclement. This way, you could effectively control the temperature and humidity levels, ensuring they are always in the suitable ranges. This plant thrives in an environment with RH levels ranging from 40% to 50% and temperatures between 21°C and 26°C (70°F and 80°F). A good ventilation system should also be put in place.
Indoors, Banana Kush grows well in both soil and hydroponics. We recommend employing the Screen-of-Green (SCROG) growing technique to achieve the best outcomes when growing the strain inside a limited space. The basic idea is to create a screen or netting at the top of the plant, which then evenly distributes the plant’s branches and buds. This results in a more uniform canopy, with all buds getting an equal amount of light. ScrOG will also help prevent your plants from getting too tall and lanky. To set up a ScrOG net, you will need some tall stakes, some string or wire, and some kind of netting material. Start by setting up the tall stakes around the perimeter of your grow area. Then, attach the string or wire to the stakes. Next, stretch the netting material over the string or wire. You can use any kind of netting material, but nylon is a good option because it is strong and inexpensive. Ensure that the netting is stretched tight so that there are no gaps. Once the netting is in place, you can start training your plants. To do this, simply bend the branches through the holes in the netting. The key is to keep all of the branches roughly the same length,
Banana Kush can produce enormous yields in the right conditions and with a suitable cultivation method. This high-yielding plant takes 6 to 8 weeks to complete blooming and be ready for harvest. If you grow indoors, you can expect to get between 450 and 550 grams of usable marijuana per square meter.
Outdoors, early October is prime harvest season, giving you plenty of time to gather the nugs before the first winter frost arrives. Between 550 grams and 700 grams can be collected from one well-fed Banana Kush plant grown in sunny and mild settings.
