If you grow outdoors in dry and sunny conditions, you could achieve a bountiful harvest of 21 ounces per plant. A GG4 plant usually is ready for harvest in mid-October. Gorilla Glue #4 produces a remarkable amount of resin, so only the best scissors will suffice when clipping and pruning the plants. When you’re harvesting the crop, make sure you bring several pairs of scissors because GG4 is sure to clog them up. However, once you get past the irritation of changing trimming devices regularly, you will love the potent high it offers.
Also, Gorilla Glue #4 is known for being one of the easiest strains to grow. Tip #5 – Best Temperature & Humidity for Gorilla Glue #4. We are living in a glorious age where marijuana is incredibly potent. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the average THC level of weed in 1978 was just 1.37%! By 2008, it had risen to 8.5%, but that’s nothing compared to the behemoths of today. GG4 strains can weigh in at 30% THC, and some strains of Strawberry Cough and Chiquita Banana have reached the 33% mark. With Gorilla Glue #4, you have one of the most potent weed strains ever, so it is imperative to get the temperature and humidity settings correct. In generic terms, you should keep your GG4 strain at temperatures of between 68 and 85-degrees Fahrenheit. During the vegetative stage, we recommend keeping the plants at a temperature of around 80 degrees. You can drop it a little when it is flowering, but keep it at 75 degrees.
Also, make sure the night time temperature is no more than 10 degrees lower than the daytime one. With Gorilla Glue #4, you have one of the strongest weed strains ever – hands down. As for humidity, most growers are guilty of keeping it too high. We’ve heard of growers keeping it at 70% towards the end of the vegetative stage. In reality, humidity levels should start at 60% when your GG4 is a seedling. Make sure it falls to 50-55% by the end of the vegetative stage and continue lowering gradually. A humidity level of 40-45% is perfectly fine during the flowering stage, so don’t panic! Every plant needs nutrients to thrive, and GG4 is no different. Your GG4 plant will respond well to a nitrogen-rich feed early in the vegetative stage. Experienced GG4 growers recommend using potassium-silicate rich foods which will help the plant to grow strong as its buds develop. Make sure you focus on potassium and phosphorus during flowering. Other essential nutrients include sulfur, magnesium, and calcium. If you use a solution for feeding your plants rather than mixing it in the soil, please note that you won’t have to feed your crop frequently. In reality, a weekly feeding is fine if you use soil with good drainage or an inert growing medium. Above all, do not provide your plants with undiluted nutrients. It is best to dilute the solution to 50% or thereabouts. Your Gorilla Glue #4 plants will exhibit different symptoms according to the nutrient deficiency. Here is a quick guide to help you spot whether your plants aren’t getting enough of a particular nutrient: NUTRIENT GUIDE FOR GROWING GORILLA GLUE #4. NUTRIENT EFFECT Calcium Causes the soil to become acidic Nitrogen Small growth, red stems, and fast yellowing of lower leaves that spread up the plant Phosphorus Slow or stunted growth, with darker green lower leaves and yellowing leaves close to death. Potassium Curling of leaf ends as they die and the plant stretches out. Sulfur New growth contains yellowing Magnesium The leaves turn yellow or white, and the process begins in the plant’s middle before spreading to younger leaves. Pest wise, aphids (e.g., greenfly or blackfly) are a real problem. They suck out your GG4 plants’ nutrients and worst of all, are capable of producing a dozen offspring a day! Look out for pale, yellow insects on the underside of the leaves. If you don’t check your crop carefully, aphids are capable of wiping it out completely.
Aphids produce nectar that’s loved by ants, so if you see an army of ants near your plants, chances are aphids are nearby. Typically, Gorilla Glue #4 is highly resistant to pests and diseases, but improper care of your plants can cause havoc. For the record, there are fungal and bacterial diseases that can damage your crop.
In general, fungal diseases thrive in damp or humid conditions and spores float around the air, ready to find the best location. Gorilla Glue #4 is typically resistant to pests and diseases, but improper care can still wreak havoc on your crop. Bacterial diseases are introduced by bugs, rain, humans, and many other things. If left unchecked, one of these diseases can kill a healthy plant.
