Do-Si-Dos grows between 4 to 6 feet tall. It is a robust cannabis plant with a thick stem and branches that typically won’t require support. Because this strain bushes out, eliminating inessential lower growth improves air circulation and light penetration, lowering the chances of moisture buildup. It has high resilience against mold and mildew, but keeping dampness at bay can help achieve a successful grow.
Do-Si-Dos may be cultivated in areas with a Mediterranean climate since it thrives best in a mild, sunny, and warm environment. One plant grown in favorable conditions can produce 500 to 800 grams. In the north of the equator, the harvest is ready for collection by mid to late October.
If you’re growing Do-Si-Dos indoors, the Screen of Green (ScrOG) and Sea of Green (SOG) techniques can help you maximize your plants’ bud production to 600 to 700 grams per square meter after 8 to 9 weeks of flowering. If left to own devices, cannabis plants naturally grow one apical cola and several smaller budding sites on the lateral branches. With ScrOG, indoor cultivators improve the plants’ light exposure and encourage the production of several top colas by weaving the branches through the mesh and creating a horizontal canopy. This method extracts high yields from as few as one to five marijuana plants.
SOG, on the other hand, maximizes yield in a limited space. It requires growing several small plants in a compact area and forcing them into flowering much earlier. Unlike scrogging, this technique urges the plants to focus on developing their primary cola. This results in an expedited growing process and a bigger harvest per square meter.
Apart from employing a suitable grow training method, also maintain the humidity and temperature at a comfortable level, and adjust them according to the plant’s growth stage. The ideal RH level is around 45 to 55%, and the daytime temperature should be between 21 and 26°C during the vegetative stage. Reduce to 35 to 45% and 20 to 24°C come flowering.
For both growth phases, the nighttime temperature should be a few degrees Celsius colder. At about 17 to 23°C, the cold lights off temperatures can bring out the purple tinge in Do-Si-Dos’ forest green foliage and deep green buds. While it might look appealing, it is purely physical and has no impact on the quality and potency of the harvest. If you’d like to amplify the flavor and fragrance of the nugs, we recommend growing in organic soil over hydroponics, which is a better option for bigger yields.
Growers who want to cultivate for consumption using regular seeds instead of feminized seeds must get rid of the males. To prevent any females from being pollinated and, as a result, producing seeded buds, do it as soon as the early male pollen sacks emerge.
