growing strains

501st OG is an easy-to-grow, high-yielding strain suitable for beginners. The plant is tolerant of temporary cold and damp situations and is mold and mildew-resistant. Buds are small but potent. Combined with the ease of growth, it’s clear that 501st OG is a fabulous strain for home growers.


When growing 501st OG indoors, you can expect a stocky plant that responds well to training methods such as “sea of green,” where young plants are bent to grow horizontally. Using this method, plants do not often grow above 30 inches (76 cm).

When growing outside, untrained plants can grow up to 6 feet. For this reason, training methods such as topping or the “sea of green” method are recommended.

Humidity and Temperature

Although the strain prefers a dry, sunny climate, 501st OG is resistant to mold and mildew and can tolerate the occasional high humidity.


When grown inside, 501st OG can be expected to take around 50-65 days before being ready for harvest. The colorful flower buds are small, dense, and covered in fine hairs. They’re ready for harvest when the trichomes turn into a mixture of cloudy/milky and amber. For plants grown outdoors, flowering time is near the end of October.
