Gorilla Glue’s photoperiod plants are known to have a rapid growth rate and a short flowering period of only 8 to 9 weeks. With a height ranging from 60 to 150 cm, it’s compact enough to fit in most spaces. That said, the growing process can be challenging if the growing area isn’t kept warm and dry. If the conditions aren’t right, the plants might become vulnerable to diseases and pests.
For maximum productivity, growers can apply some training techniques. For instance, the plant may be topped during the vegetative stage to stimulate more bud sites. At the same time, employing the Screen of Green (SCROG) method can encourage more lateral branching.
Indoor growers are in luck because this strain truly appreciates a controlled environment. When using a hydroponic setup, regularly prune the shrubs as they end to grow rapidly. Soil is also a good option for boosting the terpene profile. In either case, the temperature should not go lower than 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) nor exceed 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit). During vegetation, the optimum relative humidity (RH) level is 60%, but it should be decreased to 45% in the flowering stage. Using these techniques, a maximum yield of 510 grams per square meter can be expected after 8 to 9 weeks.
If you live in an area with a warm and sunny climate, this strain can also flourish outdoors. It has high resistance against common diseases and pests, but it needs plenty of magnesium, calcium, and sulfur to thrive. By the end of October, the buds should be ready to harvest. Each plant can generate up to 600 grams of sticky, delectable buds.
Should you choose regular GG seeds, be aware that your crop will have a 50/50 chance of becoming male or female. Germinate twice as many seeds as you think you will require for the best results.
