When cultivating regular seeds, you won’t know the gender of the plant until the early stages of flowering. You’ll need to weed out the male sprouts from the garden if you’re growing marijuana for the sensimilla, the consumable, unseeded buds that contain beneficial amounts of cannabinoids. This is because females must stay unfertilized to concentrate their efforts on producing cannabinoids rather than reproducing. Pollinated females also generate seeded buds devoid of potency and are harsh to smoke.
To simplify the entire growing process,many growers opt for feminized seeds. Accidental pollination becomes a non-issue, and cannabis cultivators need not grow twice as many seeds. It saves time and resources, as well as maximizes the use of the garden space.
Once you’ve determined the best seed type for you, start prepping for a potentially challenging marijuana cultivation journey.
While Indica strains are known for their straightforward growth, Triangle Kush is not an easy plant to grow. It grows taller and blossoms for longer than a conventional Indica, taking 10 to 12 weeks to finish flowering. In addition, the strain demands consistently favorable conditions and plenty of TLC to do well.
Fortunately, the plant boasts good resistance to molds, pests, and diseases that often attack cannabis gardens. Plus, while this moderate yielder isn’t the most generous in the block, bear in mind that its up to 26% THC potency means a little goes a long way.
As mentioned, Triangle Kush can grow quite tall as it continues stretching past the 3rd week of flowering.Limiting the plant’s development without hurting its bud output while cultivating indoors adds to the painstaking attention required to keep the herb thriving. Should you wish to restrict this cannabis plant’s vertical growth, some of the best growing techniques that can get the job done while maximizing budding include the Sea of Green (SOG), Screen of Green (ScrOG), and topping.
For optimal results, ensure that the indoor grow area is CO2 rich and moderately hot but never exceeding 31°C at any point. Also monitor the medium’s pH level, maintaining it at 6 to 6.5 in soil and 5.5 to 6.5 in soilless setups like hydroponics. Growers can collect 300 to 400 grams of highly resinous flowers per square meter if all goes well.
Growing Triangle Kush outdoors tends to be more straightforward in places with a suitable climate. That is if you (and your neighbors) don’t mind a tall cannabis plant stinking to high heaven in your backyard. Throwing all discretion to the winds, it flourishes beautifully and can provide up to 400 grams per plant when grown in warm and dry conditions. The harvest rolls around mid to late October in the northern hemisphere.
