Cherry Pie Sativa Strain Grow Info
In general, once you have Cherry Pie Sativa seeds, it is best to focus on growing your plants indoors. If you choose to ignore this advice and elect to grow this strain outside, it needs a warm, Mediterranean climate with a ton of sunshine. Outdoor grown Cherry Pie Sativa will be ready for harvest towards the end of October, and it yields 14 ounces of bud per plant on average.
If you grow this strain inside, keep the daytime temperature between 70- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit. While it is tempting to use a hydroponics setup, Cherry Pie Sativa flourishes when you use soil. Look for loam potting soil and consider adding soil amendments such as worm castings and bat guano to improve the quality of the soil.
As far as relative humidity (RH) is concerned, Cherry Pie Sativa grows best when it is on the lower end of the scale. Keep it to around 55% during the vegetative stage and drop it into the 40s when your flowers are in bloom. Towards harvest time, the RH should be no higher than 40%.
Cherry Pie Sativa is a strain that needs a reasonable degree of pruning. It grows to be a medium-sized plant but is also capable of growing to be quite bushy. When you see your crop begin to grow out, start shearing any dying leaves you see. It is best to only prune a small amount of each plant at a time. If you trim too much, too soon, you could cause your plants to go into shock. This will slow down growth, and increase the risk of a hermaphrodite plant growing.
Finally, make sure you ‘flush’ your plants to get rid of nutrient traces. The last thing you need is the taste of nitrogen when smoking your weed! Use pH neutral water around 7-14 days before harvest, and flush the soil. Your plants will use up any nutrient reserves left, and there is no fear of that less than pleasant fertilizer taste.
