growing strains

The Bacio Gelato strain is challenging to grow. It requires high-intensity light and low humidity conditions, which can be hard to maintain. It’s also susceptible to fungi and overwatering. Growers prepared for the challenge will enjoy the benefits of this potent strain.


This hybrid strain is a relatively small plant, making it an ideal option for indoor growth, especially if you do not have a substantial growing room. It rarely exceeds 30 inches and produces a plant with broad, dark green leaves.

Humidity and Temperature

This strain has particular humidity requirements, making it challenging to grow. If you grow this strain outside, ensure humidity is low during warmer temperatures. The Bacio Gelato strain does well indoors or in a greenhouse where the relative humidity can be kept below 60% with high light. If the humidity is too high, the cannabis strain may develop diseases, including Botrytis cinerea, a fungus that can kill the plant.


The Bacio Gelato strain’s flowering time is around eight to nine weeks when grown indoors or mid-October if grown outdoors. This strain will produce green nugs with shades of purple and orange due to the presence of purple trichomes and orange pistils.
