Sour Cookies is simple to grow, but a little research before popping her feminized seeds will go a long, long way. She doesn’t require a lot of nutrients. To know if she’s getting enough, too much, or too little, keep an eye on her leaves. During the fruiting stage, she’ll hypnotize everyone with different pungent aromas. If you want to covertly cultivate cannabis, make sure you have a dependable carbon filter and that the door behind you when entering and leaving the grow area is firmly shut or zipped properly.—more details on how to keep this strain’s nose-punching fragrance on the low on the next section.
The feminized Sour Cookies needs a little assistance if you want a healthy plant that will bring upon generous yield. She’s a medium-sized lady with a long slender stem and branches. Once she begins to flower, she’ll likely require aid to carry the weight of her heavy colas, or her branches may snap. One popular option is the Screen of Green (ScrOG), a horizontal trellising system used to support cannabis plants during flowering. This method involves using a screen or netting to create a grid over the plants, which then helps to carry the weight of the buds and ensure the plant doesn’t fall over or break during her final weeks. It also allows her to focus on fattening up those nuggets and letting them build their precious contents until harvest time comes around. If the technique is too complicated, you may always bind her branches with string or twist ties, which is just as effective.
Aside from assistance, Sour Cookies doesn’t require a lot of foliage maintenance since her sparseness and slenderness allow for adequate air circulation without any additional work on your side. Simply remove any dead leaves and let her foliage be.
When cultivating Sour Cookies indoors, the optimum temperature is between 21° and 26°C with a humidity (RH) level of around 40% to 50%. We recommend using 10-liter or two-gallon pots and exposing her to 18 hours of daylight for approximately two weeks after germination for her to mature fully. It’s time to enter the fruiting stage when she’s reached her maximum growth potential. If the strain is cultivated correctly, cultivators may produce up to 450 grams of dense, tapered buds per square meter after 9 to 10 weeks of flowering.
When you turn to Mother Nature for help in growing cannabis, she will provide and do most of the work for you, which is excellent news for individuals who want a little assistance with their weed plants. This saves money and labor because natural light and ventilation will grow your Sour Cookies, making your job much easier. The strain thrives in places with sunny, warm, and humid conditions, including parts of southern Europe, Australia, and California. Depending on your location, the harvest will be in March in the southern hemisphere or late October in the north. She may grow up to 120cm tall and produce up to 500g per plant if you maintain her in a spot with direct access to sunlight.
