Growing Cashus Clay
Cashus Clay is not a beginner friendly strain. As it is available only as a clone, it is highly susceptible to diseases from fungus and bugs. Moreover, it requires the expert care of a seasoned grower. If anything, the only benefit of cultivating a cutting is that it is farther in development compared to seeds.
Because of its sensitivity to disease, insects, and other growing factors, the best environment for Cashus Clay is indoors where growers can adjust temperature, lighting, and humidity. The growing room should be kept between 22°C to 24°C with high levels of humidity and a moist medium. Since cuttings do not have roots, it has difficulty retaining water. Thus, keeping a manageable water routine is also essential. Otherwise, the plant might wilt and die. Meanwhile, trimming away dead branches or leaves will help distribute nutrients to healthier budding sites.
Growers should ensure that the growing space has a proper ventilation system to prevent any of the moisture turning into mold or mildew. Flowering should come around 7 to 9 weeks once the cutting is replanted and develops a root system. It yields between 350 to 400 grams of buds per square meter.
Soil improves its terpene profile and its overall flavor. However, growers can utilize a hydroponics setup to deliver nutrients directly to its root, hasten its flowering period, and significantly improve turnout.
Once the plants have developed a root system, growers can move the plants to a garden or farm. The sunshine, as well as a light breeze that blows against it, strengthens Cashus Clay’s branches and stalks. It matures between 7 to 9 weeks with each plant producing at least 450 to 500 grams of buds.
