Orange Bud’s ample yield can be maximized by employing the Sea of Green (SOG) method for indoor cultivation. This technique is great for growers with small spaces. Additionally, if you want to hasten the overall growth cycle, propagating this strain in a water medium gives the roots direct access to nutrients. After an 8-week flowering period, you should be able to harvest up to 400 grams(14 ounces) of delectable nugs per square meter.
Precise temperature and relative humidity (RH) levels will provide a better defense against pathogens and diseases. These factors should be adjusted as the plant enters its different stages.
- Seedling stage: 20 to 25 degrees Celsius (68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit), 65% to 70% RH
- Vegetation period: 22 to 28 degrees Celsius (72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit), 40% to 70% RH (lowered by 5% each week)
- Flowering period: 20 to 26 degrees Celsius (68 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit), 40% to 50% RH
- 1 to 2 weeks before harvest: 18 to 24 degrees Celsius (64 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) 30% to 40% RH
Rearing Orange Bud outdoors is possible in a warm, continental climate with abundant sunshine and mild breezes. For growers living in the northern hemisphere, the best time to harvest is early October, before the winter season arrives. Each 90 to 120 cm (3 to 4 feet) plant can provide a massive 400-gram (14 ounces) yield.
Note that regular seeds offer a 50/50 chance of getting both male and female plants. The male plants can be used for future breeding projects, but you have to ensure that no accidental pollination occurs by placing them in a separate room. On the other hand, feminized seeds guarantee that all the seeds will turn out to be female plants – an option that is more suitable for beginners.
