Growing weed from Cotton Candy seeds and clippings is relatively easy. It is a plant that thrives well both indoors and outdoors and is resilient to most pests and mold. It can, however, grow quite tall, so be sure to trim the plant at regular intervals.

When you grow indoors, you can expect it to yield an average of 16 ounces per square meter. It takes around 8 to 9 weeks to flower and become ready for harvest.

When growing outdoors, ensure that you provide it with a warm and sunny climate. You can expect yields that average at 35 ounces per plant. It is ready for harvest at around Mid-October.

If you want the plant to have better yields, you must ensure that it gets the required nutrients. Flower Power fertilizer is an excellent choice for extra nutrients.

Really love this mj. It has the cotton candy taste that I like. It got me relaxed but not sleepy so I don’t understand why Banice says it made her sleep! It has a strong Sativa boost but one that is calming with no anxiety and overstimulation. I love it.

This flower is a creeper sleeper. I rolled a joint yesterday and I only enjoyed half of it as I was already feeling high and happy. However, about half an hour later I fell into a deep sleep. It is perfect for anxiety and depression.
