Growing

growing strains

The 22 strain is moderately challenging to grow. It may not be the best choice for inexperienced users wishing to grow their cannabis.

22 has a large yield, owing to the parent strain Jack Herer. When 22 is grown outside, you can expect a yield of approximately 400 grams (14 ounces) of bud per plant. Indoors, 22 typically yields between 10.5 to 14 ounces (300 and 400 grams) of bud per square meter.

Height

When grown indoors, 22 reaches heights between 30 and 60 inches (76 and 152 cm).

This strain can grow taller outdoors. When in optimal environmental conditions, it can grow to between 60 and 80 inches (152 to 203 cm). Due to these heights, it’s important to remember that the 22 strain needs a lot of space around it to grow.

Humidity and Temperature

Like many other cannabis strains, 22 grows best in conditions resembling a Mediterranean climate. A combination of sunshine, warmth, and humidity levels under 70% is optimal for growing 22 to its full potential.

Flowering

The 22 strain usually flowers after around 60 to 70 days or about ten weeks. If it is grown outside, in the Northern Hemisphere, you can expect it to be ready to harvest sometime during October.

As a photoperiod strain, 22’s onset of flowering is influenced by changes in the light cycle, such as the hours of sunlight each day.
