However, it’s a sativa-dominant plant since it has many characteristics of a sativa, such as pale, thin leaves and a tall height. Therefore, when growing this plant outdoors, growers must ensure that the plant has plenty of sunlight. Otherwise, the bottom leaves could be prone to diseases like mold.

When grown outdoors, growers can expect a yield of 10-15 ounces per plant (280-425 grams). However, when grown indoors, the yield will be slightly lower. When growing this plant indoors, growers can limit the height of this strain by cutting the top of the central stalk. Doing so will prevent the plant from growing too tall. As a result, it will be bushier and produce more flowers.
