Cultivating Cherry Pie is normally a trouble-free experience, even for newbies. Being naturally resistant to pests, such as bugs and molds, makes this strain beginner-friendly. However, if you live in a harsh climate, it is better grown indoors.
The Sea of Green method (SOG) works best for indoor cultivation. By clustering several plants in the available area, space is maximized, and the yield is increased. Using hydroponics as the growing medium hastens the harvest time by allowing the nutrients to be absorbed directly into the roots, thus making the plants grow faster.
Nonetheless, experts swear by organic soil because it contains microorganisms that can enhance the terpene profile. Terpenes are responsible for the flavor and aroma, and they also intensify and prolong the user’s high.
That said, the temperature and humidity levels have to be well-managed. Maintain the temperature between 21 and 21 degrees Celsius (70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit) for the best results. As for the relative humidity (RH), keep it at 40 to 50%. After 8 to 9 weeks of flowering, you can treat yourself to 450 grams (16 ounces) of sensationally flavorful buds per square meter.
Outdoor cultivation is also possible, but if you want to provide your plant the benefit of a well-managed grow area and the feeling of being outdoors simultaneously, you can place it inside a greenhouse. It prefers a warm climate and lots of sunlight, where it can grow up to 150 cm (5 feet) and produce up to 400 grams (14 ounces) per plant. For the northern hemisphere, the best time to plant is during the summer, and the harvest should be done before the end of October.
If you plan to use regular seeds, keep in mind that they give you an equal chance of getting male and female plants. It is recommended to germinate more seeds than usual to ensure the desired yield.
