Get to know BCN Critical XXL
Boasting Kritical Bilbo, Critical +, and Critical Mass genetics, BCN Critical XXL has the best (and some say upgraded version) of sought-after Critical traits. It’s an easy-to-grow strain with thin, long Sativa-style leaves and wide internodal spaces. Such growth characteristics make concerns typically rooting from moisture accumulation highly avoidable, but it isn’t without any downside. Growing into a branchy, medium to large-sized plant, it requires help in redistributing the weight of its large flowering sites during the bloom stage.
What are feminized seeds?
The female cannabis plant is responsible for producing the desirable flowers that make smoking a joint so pleasurable. This is because only female cannabis plants produce cannabinoid-rich buds that provide the desired tastes and effects. That’s why so many cannabis cultivators prefer using feminized seeds.
Growers that start their gardens with feminized seeds reap many benefits. Feminized seeds shorten the time and effort needed to cultivate cannabis plants as the likelihood of growing a female increases up to 99%. They are spared the trouble of tending plants for weeks hoping that some of them will develop a female phenotype. There’s no need to determine the gender and eliminate male plants that could accidentally pollinate the females.
How to grow BCN Critical XXL?
Screen of Green (ScrOG) and Sea of Green (SOG) are popular training techniques for obtaining great results when cultivating BCN Critical XXL. If these methods are too much work for you, topping can improve the plant’s already outstanding yields.
BCN Critical adapts well to all grow media. You can use organic soil for enhanced terpene profile, coco coir for robust root development, or a hydroponic system for rapid growth and straightforward nutrient management. Also provide enough light using at least a 600W HID lamp. The plant enjoys an 18/6 lighting schedule, then switch to a 12/12 light cycle when it’s ready to start flowering.
BCN Critical XXL flowers for 8 to 9 weeks. In the latter part of this stage, especially in humid conditions, the crops require monitoringdue to their bud density. A production that can reach up to 600 grams per indoor square meter and 1000 grams for every outdoor-grown plant can be expected when it is grown in ideal conditions and given optimal care. When growing outside in the northern hemisphere, the harvest is ready for collecting from late September to early October.
Tips for best results
Here are additional tips that can help you make the most out of BCN Critical XXL:
- Use at least 10L containers to give it ample space for root growth.
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommended nutrient dosage and do not over water.
- Keep the indoor relative humidity level below 65% and the temperature at no more than 32°C.
The pH range for soil is between 5.5 and 6.5, while a hydroponic grow should be around 5.5.
