Best cultivated by home-growers with at least some level of experience, Lamb’s Bread boasts a high resistance to common diseases that plague marijuana gardens but is finicky when it comes to environmental conditions. The strain requires the Mediterranean or equatorial climate to grow well outdoors as it thrives in hot, dry summers. The moderate temperatures and long growing season provide ideal conditions for the cannabis plant to flourish. The hot summers help the plants increase cannabinoid production. In addition, the lack of humidity in a Mediterranean climate reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth. In the northern hemisphere, the harvest should be ripe for plucking by October to Mid-November.
If you can’t ensure favorable outdoor conditions, it is best to grow Lamb’s Bread in a controlled environment. Mimic its desired climate by regulating both temperature and relative humidity indoors. As with most cannabis strains, the ideal temperature is between 68 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit, while the relative humidity is best maintained between 40 and 50 percent.
To achieve high yields, we recommend growing Lamb’s Bread in a Screen of Green, or ScrOG. The method is commonly used indoors, but some weed cultivators have managed to pull it off outdoors. It is a popular cultivation technique used to maximize bud production in cannabis plants. The basic principle behind ScrOG is to train the plant to grow horizontally across a screen or net, allowing for more even light exposure and better air circulation. This training process begins when the plant is young, and the screen is placed around the plant so that only the topmost leaves are visible. As the plant grows, the branches are gently guided through the holes in the screen, creating a horizontal canopy. Once the plant reaches maturity, the result is a dense carpet of green that is covered in buds.
Screen of Green is an ideal technique for growers looking to get the most out of their crop. Not only does it increase yield, but it also helps improve the buds’ quality. A successful ScrOG grow paired with ideal conditions can produce 400 grams per square meter indoors after 9 to 10 weeks of flowering or 400 grams for every outdoor-grown Lamb’s Bread plant.
