growing strains

The 12 Year OG strain is moderately difficult to grow, requiring warm conditions to flourish and mature into a small bush ideal for indoor growth. The strain will need feeding and watering only when the soil is completely dry. Once mature, it will provide moderate yields.


The 12 Year OG strain follows a typical indica growing pattern: It will mature into a relatively small plant, making it an ideal choice for indoor cultivation. It is unlikely that the plant will grow over 4 feet in height.

Humidity and Temperature

The 12 Year OG strain requires a warm environment to grow and produce high-quality buds. This hybrid strain prefers temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Like its parent Kush, it prefers a relative humidity of 45%-65% to avoid bud rot. Start with high humidity of around 80% when the seed is germinating. Gradually decrease the humidity and taper off at about 50% RH in the final weeks of growth.


The 12 Year OG strain produces classic Kush-like dense buds with thick OG aromas. The buds are arrow-shaped with beautiful light green nugs with tiny orange hairs and crystal white trichomes, which gives the strain its orange crystalline appearance. The harvesting time will be around the ninth week, although information on the exact harvesting time is still unknown.
