Strawnana

The Strawberry Banana strain — commonly called the Strawnana strain — is a beloved indica dominant hybrid with a sweet, fruity taste and an almost hash-like, spicy smell. It is thought to be a cross between Banana Kush and the Strawberry phenotype of Bubble Gum.

The Strawnana strain was created by DNA genetics and serious seeds by crossing Crockett’s Banana Kush with the Strawberry variant of Bubble Gum. Based on this parentage, it can be considered to have origins in India and Afghanistan, among other places.

Regardless of its parentage, it’s much beloved as an Indica with a sweet taste and smell profile and is considered relatively easy to use for beginners. However, its high THC content can catch users off-guard, leaving them more affected than expected.

Some have found the marijuana strain to have a smooth, berry-like aftertaste, but the plant has a pungent odor that can be an essential consideration for some. It provides users with a slow-building high, making it advisable to use it in moderation and wait for its effects to kick in before taking another hit.

The Strawnana cannabis plant has small- to medium-sized flowers with a tight and dense structure. Its leaves are usually light green with an almost yellow hue contrasting with bright orange pistils and a fuzzy coat of white trichomes. Some leaves may also have purple spots if the plant is exposed to colder temperatures while growing. The plant can be grown inside or outside.

Height

The Strawnana plant can reach a height of between 70 and 90 inches tall, reaching the higher end of the spectrum when grown outdoors and being a bit shorter when grown inside. It tends to have big yields, which can be optimized using several handy tips and tricks.

Humidity and Temperature

A low humidity of around 50% and a temperature of approximately 70 degrees Fahrenheit are ideal for growing Strawnana. Reduce the temperature slightly when the plant starts flowering to prevent the buds from rotting.

Flowering

If grown inside, the plant can take anywhere between nine and 10 weeks to begin flowering. Outside, it is likely to be ready for harvest in early to mid-October. In case you’re worried, there are ways to tell if your plant has been flowering for long enough to be harvested.
