Growing Atomical Haze
Atomical Haze is not an easy plant to grow. It has lanky stalks that break easily when fazed with strong winds. Meanwhile, its branches can break easily at the weight of its heavy colas. And though it has landrace genetics, it is still not immune to the cold temperatures and fluctuating weather conditions of many four-seasoned countries. For this reason, most growers prefer placing it indoors.
Of course, this is not to say that the plant will not thrive in the northern hemisphere. On the contrary, it performs quite well with each plant producing at least 800 grams of trichome-coated buds. Rather, it just flowers longer due to its propensity for the warm sun and long days of the Mediterranean where it blossoms in early April. Maturity for Atomical Haze usually rests between the second to the last week of October.
Although it grows bigger than the average cannabis plant outdoors, placing it indoors will allow breeders to control various deciding factors such as temperature, lighting, and humidity. Within a span of 9 to 10 weeks, Atomical Haze produces a chock-full of resin-coated buds that weigh at least 400 grams.
Because of its Sativa structure, Atomical Haze needs to be topped early to stay short. However, one only needs one or two plants to fill a space intended for four or five Indica-dominant plants to produce the same results. Using the Screen of Green method also improves yields and trichome production.
The plant itself exhibits dark green leaves with snowy-white calyxes. Each produce buds that are covered in trichomes and lined with orange pistils, as if mimicking the sun itself.
