Growing

growing strains

Before you begin, there are a few cannabis growing essentials for you to learn if you’ve never grown cannabis before. Bettie Page seeds aren’t sold commercially, so you’ll need to get some clippings to grow a clone of an adult plant if you want to grow your own. These can be grown inside or outside depending on the climate conditions where you’re growing.

Height

Bettie Page plants grow to be short and stout, reaching heights between 30 and 80 inches (76-203 cm) depending on growing conditions.

Humidity and Temperature

The ideal humidity for your Bettie Page plant depends on what stage of its life cycle it’s in. Seedlings, for example, should be kept at humidities of about 60%, while plants in the vegetative stage can manage anywhere between 50% and 70%. When the plants start flowering, they need to be a little drier at 50% humidity to prevent them from attracting molds that can be toxic and damage the plant.

Flowering

The plants should begin to flower in about 57 days and can be ready to harvest after 66 days. If you’re not sure it’s ready, the color of the pistils and trichomes can be a useful indicator of whether the buds are ready to be harvested.
