Vanilla Kush Grow Info
Vanilla Kush is the ideal beginner’s strain, with a fast growing time and minimal upkeep necessary. It can be an excellent choice for patients who are growing their cannabis at home.
This sweet bud flowers in just eight weeks, producing large, soft flowers that are pretty to look at. The real benefits of growing Vanilla Kush are that it is just as easy to grow indoors as it is outdoors, which is something that cannot be said for many plants.
With minimal effort, you could grow this bud indoors and expect a reach of around 60 cm, and a flowering time of nine weeks. Outdoor growers are looking for their plants to be ready around the end of September or beginning of October. Incredibly, this plant can produce up to 250 grams of marijuana per plant!
Growers with a little more experience could boost this plant’s bountiful yield further by using the Sea of Green (SOG) or Screen of Green (SCROG) methods.
