Hopefully our experiences will help you learn about more about this particular kind of weed, and pick out that perfect sativa strain that you’ve been thinking of growing; learn how to get the best possible results with a few simple tips and tricks. Sativa weed is known for its large leaves that have thin, serrated edges, and they tend to be a beautifully light green color . They’re pretty easy to identify via their leaves -even from the first couple of leaves you should be able to tell if a plant is sativa or not; they are the complete opposite of indica strains. They grow quite vigorously , growing up easily and growing over three meters tall when planted right outdoors.
Indoors if you don’t tame them they may end up growing much too large to sustain. They have wide internodes and plenty of branches, allowing them to absorb light almost all around and given them a nice airy foliage. Their trunks and branches aren’t as sturdy as indica strains; they’re slightly elastic, which is why it’s necessary to use tutors in order to prevent breaking. Sativa plants are generally delicate plants that you need to treat quite carefully and with plenty of patience; learning to grow sativas can be tricky. Nowadays you can get high-percentage sativa plants that can be grown without many issues, although if you’re dealing with a pure sativa is generally isn’t the case. It’s known to take much longer to grow, which is due to its incredibly long flowering period which is over 10 weeks, going over 15 weeks in some cases. This long flowering period is due to the fact sativas originally grew somewhere that had pretty regular amounts of sun all year and the time the sun is in the sky hardly varies, so flower growth is slow and progressive. This is why these strains aren’t usually grown indoors and we don’t recommend growing them indoors. In order to grow a sativa plant indoors is by setting it to flower with a 12/12h light period almost instantly so that you have a chance to control its growth a bit.
Growing sativa weed outdoors is a much more viable option; flowering periods are still long , and you may end up harvesting all the way in January, although you shouldn’t have any issues with it due to having much more space. You can allow them to grow however they want and get as large as they need to. Due to having been grown in incredibly humid areas that get a lot of rain, these types of plants have a natural resistance to humidity, fungi and rot – this is due to their airy, less-compact buds . Sativa weed has always been known for their intense, potent, mental and sometimes psychotropic effects . It’s one of the most consumed cannabis for recreational smoking. It also produces incredibly mentally stimulating, physically active, creative, energetic, anti-depressant effects too. It can reach a point where it produces anxiety, which is due to its incredibly high THC content and low CBD content. We do not recommend using this type of cannabis for relaxing or sleeping. Sativa strains aren’t the best yielders out there, as their buds grow out long and airy , containing very small calyces. This is a technique it uses to survive in hotter climates, and it turns quite a few people off of growing them; if you have the patience, they are worth it, and they’re perfect for breeding and growing new hybrid strains that produce potent and incredibly psychoactive effects. This was the first strain that I ever smoked and I remember it like it was yesterday. It can grow 3m tall over just one season and can easily produce over 1kg if planted in the ground with plenty of organic nutrients. This plant likes to grow without too much fuss, and not a lot of fertilizer; it prefers slow releasing mixes in the substrate rather than a liquid concoction. The best way to grow this plant is in some decent sunlight . Find your preferred spot and dig a hole, in which you’ll put 50L of light substrate and 3kg of worm hummus. When summer comes around (here in Spain, around the 21 st of June) then you’ll need to give the plant a dose of bat guan around the trunk. Dig a sort of moat around the trunk, at about 20cm, and scoop about 15 spoonfuls of bat guano into it. After a month, repeat the dose and then your plant is set for the flowering period. You could also give your plant some Bio Bloom by BioBizz during the flowering period for that extra touch on your plants’ buds. This way, you’ll get a completely natural yield of amazingly tasty buds that give an energizing and happy high. The buds it grows are massive; you’ll hardly be able to see the trunk at all, and the branches are full of buds with teeny tiny drops of resin all over them; that makes this strain perfect for hash extractions of the utmost quality. It should be ready around mid-October and it’s great at dealing with unfortunate climates although it might suffer a bit in as far as yield; it prefers sunnier and warmer climates over cold and rainy ones. This strain was recommended to me by my cousin, who went to Amsterdam and told me it was the best strain he’d ever tried. I fell in love with this strain due to how fast it flowers and its amazing buds.
This plant has a strange color that not many other plants have ; it has an almost radioactive green color to it.
The buds are hard like rocks and have an exquisite aroma that’s hard to describe; you’ll just have to try it yourself. It grows quite nicely indoors, even better than outdoors due to how dense and heavy the buds are; they don’t deal too well with humidity. When smoked the effect is much more relaxing than many other sativas , allowing you to relax your brain while still feeling active. It’s perfect for people that are stressed at work and need to get it off of their mind. Power Plant helps you to forget about stressful things and relaxes both body and mind, allowing you the mental energy to do more fun, relaxing activities.
