Growing

growing strains

It is best to grow this strain in a consistent indoor environment, as outdoor garden mold often takes over the plants due to their size. 4 Kings plants will need some branch support because of this. 4 Kings is a fat plant that is quite pungent and loves to grow in a humid environment.

Height

Generally, 4 Kings plants will grow between 35 to 60 inches(90 to 160 cm) with large and dense buds that are coated in resin.

Humidity and Temperature

Although cultivating information is rare to find for 4 Kings, one of its parent strains (OG Kush) is similar in its preferred cultivating climates and sizing outcomes. If growing in a hydroponics system, keep humidity at 55% during its vegetation stage, then lower it to around 40% during its flowering stage. Ensure the air is circulating around the plant with a good fan system.

Flowering

4 Kings is an easy-to-grow strain with a flowering time of 55 to 67 days. The buds will be ready to harvest by day 74 if grown in the correct conditions. Indoors, the yield is around 10.5 ounces per square meter. Outdoors, you can get about 14 ounces per square meter, though the risk of a scrapped harvest due to mold is high.
