Growing Tangerine Dream
The incredible mental and physical effects provide numerous reasons for people to plant this cannabis. Doing so also results in a plant that is quite a looker. It has large and chunky flowers with dense buds and forest green leaves. Orange pistils come out beneath its leaves. Some phenotypes may show hints of dark purple that is brought upon by exposing it to cold temperature before flowering. The white trichomes that coat the flowers make Tangerine Dream look dewy and nice.
This plant, grown in an open space with plenty of sunshine, grows as tall as 90 to 120 centimeters and tends to be bushy. Tangerine Dream has thick central stems which can fully support the dense buds. But pruning is required to keep good air circulation. Feeding it with silica and other macro-nutrients will help strengthen its immune system. It is ready for harvest during the last weeks of October yielding around 450 grams per plant.
Indoors, the temperature must be kept warm and humid at around 20 to 27 degrees Celsius. It thrives well in a hydroponics setup using the SOG (sea of green) method to maximize the yield. It has a flowering period of 9 to 10 weeks and produces an average of 500 grams per square meter.
