Banana Kush Marijuana Seeds Growing Review.
Created in California, Banana Kush is a highly popular marijuana strain, cultivated and enjoyed across the USA. An adaptable variety, producing its best quality harvests when cultivated indoors, responding well to modern, hydroponic techniques. With a reasonable vegetative cycle, the plants grow to an average-to-tall size, often requiring topping, bending and staking to generate an even canopy.
Once the plants have reached a sufficient size, reduce the light-hours to twelve per-day to induce flowering. Complete maturity requires between 7 – 9 weeks for the buds to fully ripen, producing up to 17-ounces per-plant, depending on growing conditions. Ensure plenty of air-flow around the buds and low humidity levels, to avoid mold and bud-rot issues.
Cultivated outdoors, Banana Kush requires an average temperature of between 68 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit to produce its biggest, best quality harvests. Many outdoor growers use a greenhouse to help maintain a reasonable temperature. Planted in the Spring, the plants enjoy a longer vegetative and slower flowering cycle. Per-plant yields can be as much as 21-ounces, with harvests around mid-October.
A strong, robust plant with thick branches, capable of supporting the large, dense buds as they mature. Its Indica dominance produces wide, dark-green shade leaves, which may require pruning to allow greater light penetration. As maturity approaches, the plants emit a pungent, but sweet-smelling aroma, of fresh bananas. The large buds have a bright green appearance and thick coating of sparkling resin.
