You face big problems if caught growing marijuana in a state where it is illegal. In Utah, for example, possession of over a pound is classified as a felony. It can result in up to five years in prison with a $5,000 fine. In Alabama, if your crime is classified as ‘Manufacture 1st Degree’, you could be sentenced to life in prison!
Signs for calcium deficiency in an OG Kush grow include curled tips, dead spots, crinkling, stunted growth, and small/unusual looking new leaves.
First of all, spray your OG Kush plants with organic fungicides and compost tea if you see evidence of mildew. Please make sure the plants are pruned for better airflow and act as soon as you see it. If you see cannabis that’s ready to be harvested with powdery mildew, spray a mixture of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water to kill the mildew and sterilize the plants.
Certain marijuana strains flourish indoors, while others provide spectacular yields outside. With OG Kush, you can expect it to provide a higher yield when grown outdoors. Indoor growers should consider utilizing the Sea of Green or Screen of Green method to boost their yield. On average, OG Kush provides 17 ounces per square meter planted indoors, and its flowering time is 8-9 weeks.
OG Kush Tip #7 – Growing the Strain – Keep It Legal!
Bud rot loves an excessively humid environment and also thrives in poorly ventilated rooms. Therefore, you should keep humidity at a maximum of 55% during the vegetative stage. Lower it towards the 40% mark during flowering.
There is something magical about being able to grow your favorite cannabis strain. But, unfortunately, it is only possible for you to grow marijuana in specific states where cultivation is legal. Therefore, these grow guides are for residents of states that allow cultivation for personal use. We’ll discuss this issue further in Tip #7.
How to boost quality and yield…
THE BEST GROWING MEDIUMS FOR OG KUSH
If your OG Kush plant doesn’t receive enough calcium, it displays these telltale signs:
Outdoor growers can expect up to 16 ounces per plant and to harvest in early October. The main issue you will face is powdery mildew attacks (we cover this more in tip #6), but you can combat this issue by improving airflow. These plants require pruning because OG Kush is indica-dominant, which means it grows short and dense.
Indoor/outdoor: Grows well both indoors and out. Its dense buds can make it susceptible to bud rot when humidity is high, making it ideal for drier climates if grown outdoors. OG Kush is a good choice for indoor grows as well, especially if training techniques are applied effectively.
Flowering time: 8 weeks
Climate: Can handle colder nighttime temperatures and prefers lower humidity levels while flowering. Ideally, OG Kush plants are kept at temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Strain overview: OG Kush is a famous hybrid strain with a somewhat mysterious backstory. What is known is that OGK offers a euphoric high that is also calming and sedative. The smell of OG Kush is earthy and pungent, and the buds blossom with resinous crystals. Long before legal dispensaries came around, OG Kush was already a household name in the underground cannabis industry, cherished for its reliable quality and balanced high.
Grow difficulty: Difficult
Grow techniques: This hybrid is susceptible to powdery mildew, but pruning will improve airflow in the canopy. It’s a great strain to grow indoors with SCROG or SOG methods to increase yields and bud size. Always support the buds as they can become extremely heavy and dense. A hydroponic setup indoors can help keep the immune system healthy and strong to prevent against disease.
Feeding: OG genetics require heavy feeding with calcium and magnesium. Make sure plants are receiving enough food in flowering to allow the buds to develop to their full potential. Feed plants with compost tea to strengthen their immunity against powdery mildew.
