Growing Jock Horror
Jock Horror has the features of a Sativa. It is tall with huge internodal spaces that continues to stretch toward the sky. It grows up to 3 meters tall and, because of this, it looks like a miniature Christmas tree. Meanwhile, its fluffy buds taper on each end but are quite dense and heavy especially when holding it up in one’s hand.
In spite of its lankiness, the bud is quiet sturdy and can grow in various growing conditions. Before marijuana was legalized, however, many growers opted to cultivate it indoors. It grew well but its height was difficult to manage and would sometimes cramp up the space. Pruning is essential for better aeration and light distribution. Techniques like the Screen of Green will train the plant to stay short by weaving the branches into and encouraging lateral growth. After 9 to 11 weeks of flowering, it yields between 350 to 450 grams of buds per square meter.
After legalization, however, many growers have opted to grow it outdoors where it has enough space to grow up to its full potential. The sunlight also gives it tremendous amounts energy that will improve bud production. Meanwhile, the organic soil will create better flavors. Harvest usually comes around middle of October to the early days of November. It yields at least 450 grams of buds per plant with each bud sporting bright orange pistols against a backdrop of lime green.
Lowering temperatures indoors or harvesting it later outdoors enough for the cool temperatures to set in will bring out Jock Horror’s purple hues.
