The regular seeds of Candy Punch may be successfully grown in either indoor or outdoor environments, in whatever medium the cultivator prefers. It is a disease-resistant plant and considered small for a Sativa-dominant strain.
Half of the plants that sprout from
regular seeds will develop into females, and the other half will become male. For growing unseeded marijuana buds, only female plants are needed, and males must be weeded out of the grow room as soon as possible.
Any medium, soil or soil less, can be used to grow Candy Punch. It really comes down to personal preference.As for grow training methods, low-stress training techniques such as Screen of Green (ScOG) are most suitable to encourage the plant to grow laterally, making it bushier rather than lanky. This strain only grows between a meter and a meter and a half, but its thin stem and branches could use the support the screen provides in carrying its flowering sites. If you do not plan to ScrOG, prevent any breakage by setting up a trellis, wire cage, bamboo canes, string, or plant yoyos for structure support.
Besides a fitting grow technique, optimizing the temperature, relative humidity, and pH level will help the plant thrive and produce bigger, high-quality buds. The ideal relative humidity for these plants can vary from 35 to 70%, with an optimal range of between 45-55%. In terms of temperature, these plants typically thrive in moderate climates with temperatures ranging from 65-75°F. Ideally, the temperature should be stable around this range, and it should not dip below 60°F or rise above 80°F for prolonged periods.
The ideal pH level for cannabis plants grown in soil is between 6.0 and 7.0. This range allows the plants to access the full spectrum of nutrients available in the soil. Cannabis plants grown in hydroponics can tolerate a wider range of pH levels, from 5.5 to 8.0. However, for optimal growth, it is best to maintain a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Cannabis plants are sensitive to fluctuations in pH levels, so it is vital to test the pH of the grow medium regularly and make adjustments as needed.
This plant takes 8 to 10 weeks to finish the flowering stage. That is a relatively short period for a Sativa-leaning plant.In the end, Candy Punch can produce around 400 to 500 grams per square meter.
Outdoors, the harvest rolls around mid to late October, just before winter frost sets in. Loads of sunlight and warmth are the keys to success in growing Candy Punch outdoors. Under favorable conditions, one plant can provide as much as 500 grams.
