Growing Acapulco Gold Seeds
Give these plants a hot and tropical setting and they will thrive. These plants are versatile enough to grow indoors or outdoors. Indoor setups need to replicate a hot, sunny, and dry climate to make them healthy growing. Keeping humidity levels is needed to be kept at a low level to prevent too much water vapor in the air. Too much of this and they may cause moisture build up in the buds and lead to bud rot. Sativas are naturally tall growing so top their canopy at least once to help control their upward growth. This will also induce more lateral branches to grow which will serve as potential growth points for new buds to develop. These plants will start to flower in 70 to 75 days and will be ready for harvest thereafter. Expect yields to be on the average side.
