Banana Hammock, also called Banana Hammock R1, is an indica-dominant strain (cultivar). This cannabis strain is a hybrid produced by crossing Mandarin Sunset with Grape God.

Banana Hammock is typically 70% Cannabis indica and 30% Cannabis sativa, and the effects of this strain are said to be relaxing and soothing. Therefore, it’s perfect for when you need a quiet evening at home. Most of its effects come from THC, and different varieties of this strain have different concentrations of THC, so it’s always best to check THC levels first to ensure it’s right for you.

Growing

growing strains

Banana Hammock is 70% Cannabis indica and 30% Cannabis sativa. Indica-dominant strains tend to be shorter than sativa strains, though the height of this strain may vary due to its 30% Cannabis sativa content. However, growers should not be put off by a shorter plant because while indica plants are typically short, they tend to be bushier.

If you are growing more than one Banana Hammock plant or indica-dominant strain, ensure enough ventilation between the plants. Due to the bushy nature of these plants, they will be more prone to mold and disease since they are densely packed. It’s also essential to avoid overcrowding when the plant flowers because the buds are susceptible to decay.

When grown outdoors, growers can expect a yield of 20 ounces per plant, which is a significant yield for an indica strain. For the best yield possible, cut the top off the central stalk when it has reached a suitable height. Doing so will enable the plant to stop growing taller and divert its energy into producing more flowers and buds.

Height

Banana Hammock typically grows to 60 inches when grown outdoors.

Humidity and Temperature

Semi-humid conditions are ideal for Banana Hammock, so keep the humidity around 40%-50%. Reducing the humidity as the plant enters the flowering stage will prevent mold from growing on the buds.

As with most indica-dominant strains, the temperature should be around 68-77 degrees Fahrenheit. Banana Hammock may tolerate slightly lower temperatures at night if grown outdoors, but ensure your plant is protected when temperatures get too low.

Flowering

Banana Hammock flowers for eight to nine weeks. Most indicas finish flowering after eight weeks.
