Growing Tips

This strain is easy to trim. Featuring a high calyx to leaf ratio, trimmers will make quick work of this strain. Though Lemon Skunk can take a full 8 weeks (60 days) before harvest, it's best to cut this one down a little earlier than that. In the Southern hemisphere, expect this plant to finish in April. Those in the north will need to wait until early October. This strain is a good choice for those in cooler climates. Lemon Skunk also likes moderate to high amounts of nutrients and grows best when trained into a multi-branched bush.
