The Best Way To Grow Super Lemon Haze Marijuana

That’s right, growing your own marijuana is a very real option these days. Countless companies across the internet sell specialized equipment (grow lights, soil, fertilizer, etc.) for just this purpose. You can even assemble most of your supplies from your local hardware store. It’s just that easy.
But once you have all the supplies, how should you go about using them? The experts at Honest Marijuana have been growing the finest organic marijuana for years, and we’re ready to pass our knowledge and experience on to you. In this article, we’ll reveal the best way to grow Super Lemon Haze marijuana so you can get the most yield out of this popular cannabis strain.
The History Of Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze was first produced by Green House Seeds. It won first prize in the 2008 and 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup and another first prize in the 2010 IC420 Growers Cup, so you know it’s gotta be good. Sure, it’s not the strongest belle at the ball (as you’ll see in the section below), but what it lacks in psychoactive punch, it makes up for in flavor and aroma.
The Biology Of Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze is a sativa-dominant cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. When it flowers, Super Lemon Haze produces kief-caked, multi-colored buds that are reminiscent of the Fruity Pebbles strain.
Super Lemon Haze is a fast grower and can reach heights in excess of 78 inches in just seven to nine weeks. Even though it’s one of the tallest-growing strains, its yield is similar to much shorter varieties. In fact, Super Lemon Haze produces 1-3 ounces of bud per square foot (similar to Ghost Train Haze, which is half as tall). But where the plant lags in yield, it excels in speed of growth. If you choose the Super Lemon Haze strain over the Ghost Train Haze, you could be reaping the rewards of your labor a full month before the latter finishes flowering. Prodigious!
As the name Super Lemon Haze suggests, the strain produces zesty, sweet, and citrusy aromas while its flavor is sweet and tart like a lemon drop. In terms of THC count, Super Lemon Haze averages around 16 percent, although some varieties of the strain have topped out at 25 percent. As we said, it’s not the strongest strain at the party, like Sour Diesel, Chemdawg, or Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, but it is above the 10 to 12 percent THC that most other strains exhibit.
Because of its lower THC count, Super Lemon Haze has both milder beneficial effects and milder side effects.
The Effects Of Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze produces a happy, euphoric, energetic high interspersed with peaks of high focus and valleys of drifty bliss. Those effects make it ideal for relieving the following medical problems:
- Chronic pain
- Excessive fatigue
Sounds great, right? It is. But before you say, “Yeah, that’s the strain for me!” there are some side effects to consider.
The Side Effects Of Super Lemon Haze
The most notable side effect of Super Lemon Haze is dry mouth. If we rated the side effects on a scale from 1 to 10, dry mouth would be a 10 (maybe even an 11 or 12). Dry eyes follow at a close second on the scale of side effects, though it only rates a 5 or 6 on the ten-point scale.
Coming in third, fourth, and fifth respectively are paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness. The nice thing about these last three is that they only rate a 2 on the side-effects scale. That’s not too bad for a strain that can relieve your pain and make you feel euphoric after a long, hard day.
Now that we’ve discussed the facts about Super Lemon Haze, it’s time to reveal the best way to grow a batch of this tasty treat.
The Best Way To Grow Super Lemon Haze Marijuana
From this point forward, we’ll assume you’re growing your Super Lemon Haze inside in a controlled environment. It is possible to grow Super Lemon Haze outside, but unless you’ve got the perfect combination of conditions, you aren’t going to maximize your yield.
1) Soak The Super Lemon Haze Seeds
Step one is to soak your seeds in a glass of water to “wake them up.” Remove the seeds from the water when a white taproot pokes its way out of the hull, but don’t leave the seeds soaking for more than 32 hours (they could drown, the poor things). If some seeds don’t produce a taproot after a little more than two days, they may be bad. Discard them and focus on the seeds that did produce.
2) Use The Best Soil For The Job
The best soil is one you make yourself. If you want to learn how to mix your own soil and fertilizer from scratch, check out our article How To Grow Marijuana: The Ultimate Organic Guide.
Sometimes, though, mixing your own soil isn’t really feasible (talking to you, city-dwellers). Don’t despair. Bagged soils can be just as effective as soil you composted yourself. Regardless of how you get your soil, make sure that it:
- Drains well
- Holds water
- Has the correct nitrogen to phosphorus ratio
- Contains a good balance of fungus and bacteria
- Is slightly acidic (pH of 6)
Ask around at your local garden center to find the best bagged soil for the job.
3) Plant The Seed In A Small Cup
After the taproot emerges, bury the seed (taproot down) so that the seed itself is just below the surface (no more than ⅛ of an inch). This ensures that the seedling will be able to break through into the open air.
4) Make Sure Your Water Is pH Balanced
Cannabis prefers a slightly acidic environment, so make sure your water is pH balanced accordingly (between 6.0 and 7.0 on the pH scale). You can buy pH increaser or pH decreaser at your local garden center.
5) Give Your Plant The Right Amount Of Light And Darkness
As soon as the seedling pokes its head through the dirt (Hello!), give it 18 hours of light followed by 6 hours of darkness. We recommend 315-watt bulbs and a 24-hour auto-timer so that you don’t have to get up in the middle of the night to turn off the grow lights (that’s a major buzzkill).
6) When The Seedling Is Big Enough, Transfer It To A Grow Pot
When the seedling begins to develop new leaf nodes (the start of the vegetative phase), transfer the plant to a five-gallon grow pot. Add more soil and continue giving the plant 16-18 hours of light every day.
7) Make Sure Your Plant Is Warm
Keep your grow environment between 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t let the temperature fall below 65 degrees Fahrenheit or exceed 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
8) Keep The Air Circulating
Keep the air moving at all times by angling a fan up toward the ceiling (don’t point it directly at the plant).
9) Water When The Soil Is Dry
Only water your growing plant when the top inch of soil is dry. You can tell when your plant is thirsty because the leaves will begin to droop and take on a limp, lifeless appearance.
10) Keep Multiple Plants Separated For Best Results
Super Lemon Haze likes a lot of personal space, so keep multiple plants separated (or move them further apart as they grow) to promote growth and flowering.
11) Reduce The Hours Of Light To Force Flowering
After six or seven weeks of growth, begin to gradually reduce the hours of light each day until you reach the 12-hour mark. This will signal to the plant that it’s time to start flowering.
12) Harvest Your Super Lemon Haze Buds
Your Super Lemon Haze is ready for harvest when the trichomes change color from clear to amber. Carefully trim the buds away from the stem and move on to the next step. You’re almost finished!
13) Dry The Buds
Hang the Super Lemon Haze buds in a room where the temperature can be maintained around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity can be kept between 40 and 50 percent. Keep the buds here for about a week.
14) Cure The Buds
Break down your buds into small pieces, and store them in glass jars with lids. These jars should be kept in the dark at a temperature between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit for one to three weeks. Crack the lids every day to let some fresh air in (like burping your Tupperware).
After three weeks of curing, your ganja should be good to go. You can now roll a joint or decarboxylate the buds for use in edibles, tinctures, and oils. For a complete guide to decarboxylation, check out our article Marijuana Decarboxylation: Why And How To Decarb Your Weed.
Enjoy The Fruits Of Your Labor
Growing marijuana is not difficult. In fact, it’s no more difficult than growing any other plant. You just have to give it plenty of attention and the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. With a little trial and error, you can grow healthy buds year after year.
