How to Grow Cherry Pie Feminized
The Cherry Pie is a medium-sized plant that might not be suitable for growers who have limited space due to its branches. Its bushy structure would need to be trimmed from time to time for a better air circulation and prevent the buildup of moisture. This plant is also composed of green and purple-colored nugs covered with an abundant amount of trichomes.
In an indoor environment, it is important to control the temperature from going beyond 70°F and 80°F and the humidity should be between 40% to 50%. Doing so, will help the plant flourish and prevent threats such as molds and mildews. Using hydroponics or soil with the Sea of Green (SoG) technique optimizes the performance of the plant and produces a higher yield.
When cultivated outdoors, the Cherry Pie thrives in a Mediterranean-like climate where the plant receives enough sunlight. Before the weather becomes too cold or during the month of October, cultivators should be able to harvest.
