How to germinate Strawberry Cough feminized seeds
Strawberry Cough cannabis seeds are similar to any other type. They only require air, heat, and water to sprout. There are a few ways you can germinate your marijuana feminized seeds
The simplest and most common method uses paper towels saturated in water, as demonstrated in our germination guide
. We recommend this method as it's the only one that comes with our germination guarantee.
Here's what it entails:
You'll need your Kyle Kushman Strawberry Cough feminized cannabis seeds, paper towels, two clean plates, and some water for this germination method.
- Take two paper towels and saturate them with water. Make sure they're completely wet but not so drenched that water runs out. Then, squeeze out that excess water.
- Take one of your wet paper towels and lay it on a plate. Place your Strawberry Cough feminized seeds about an inch apart at the paper towel.
- Take the remaining paper towel and cover the cannabis seeds.
- Place the other plate on top of the one carrying the wet paper towels holding the marijuana seeds to form a dome.
- Ensure the cannabis seeds are in a dark, warm, and safe setting, such as your drawer. The best temperature falls between 70–90°F.
- After all this, all you need to do is wait and check on your paper towels daily to ensure they are still wet.
- If you notice they are dry towards the edges, dampen them some more to keep the seeds happy and moist.
- Wait for the cannabis seeds to pop open and sprout. This taproot will become the plant's stem, and congratulations—you've successfully germinated your feminized Strawberry Cough seeds.
- Some marijuana seeds germinate faster than others. Don't worry, it's normal.
- Avoid touching the taproot or seed after the seed splits. Once the seeds develop a white sprout, carefully pick them up wearing gloves and plant them.
The tiny rootlet needs to be pointing down as you plant. Make sure the process is clean and sterile. After the cannabis seeds germinate, the real work begins as they're ready to be planted.
Strawberry Cough feminized seeds grow guide
Plant your germinated strawberry cough seeds and wait for the stem to come out and become a seedling. During the seedling phase, all you'll need to do is provide your cultivar with tap water every two to three days because the two dicotyledons provide the food it needs to develop.
After the first two weeks, the dicotyledons will fall off since the first fan leaves are geared up for photosynthesis. The weed starts its vegetative stage from this point.
A great thing about the feminized Strawberry Cough plant is that her roots take quickly, so you can switch from veg to flower within two weeks of vegetative growth. This vegetative stage can be as long as you'd like. For example, cultivators can choose a short veg period because of limited space.
In contrast, commercial cultivators like to veg for around 60 days to give the crop a massive root base, letting them yield the highest amount of buds.
The Strawberry Cough feminized plant thrives in warm temperatures. Ensure that you're in a tropical and hot climate if you wish to grow the plant outside. Ideal temperatures fall between 80–85°F during the day and 70–75°F at night.
The temperature shouldn't fall by more than 15°F when lights are off. The perfect relative humidity is between 55–67%, day or night.
You could exceed temperatures of 90°F to accelerate vegetative growth, but only if you increase carbon dioxide levels and reduce humidity in the grow room. Higher temperatures without the accompanying conditions could negatively impact photosynthesis.
As you can see, there's considerable leeway in growth conditions, meaning you can cultivate Strawberry Cough feminized plants in multiple regions outdoors. You should place your Kyle Kushman Strawberry Cough plant under 18 hours of light and six hours of darkness to accelerate growth indoors.
Then, when you're satisfied with the plants' sizes, flip the switch to flower by giving them 12 hours of light and darkness every day until harvest. After switching, the feminized Strawberry Cough plants will grow white hairs called pistils, and you'll want this process to continue for 10–11 weeks—when the buds ripen.
As soon as the plants are mature enough, cut them at the bottom, hang them upside down and let them dry until the branches snap at the bud sites—drying should take about two weeks. Accelerating this process may reduce potency.
After drying, store the Strawberry Cough buds into buckets or jars to cure and burp once a day for the first two weeks. After that, it's ready to smoke, but the longer your cure, the better it'll be.
The Kyle Kushman Strawberry Cough plant is a heavy feeder, so you'll need to provide her with nitrogen-based fertilizers until the 4th week of flowering. Beware its change in size, though—Strawberry Cough doubles in size after switching from veg to flower.
HMGs' phenotype grows thick and bushy like an indica, despite having narrow leaves typical of a sativa. Therefore, you'll need to prune it regularly and remove the unnecessary foliage that takes up valuable nutrients needed by the succulent colas on top.
However, do not prune your feminized Strawberry Cough plants completely in one session to avoid shocking the plant, especially after 2–3 weeks into flowering.
The bright green cola from feminized Strawberry Cough plants are tall, wide, bulbous, and densely packed like an indica. Dark red hairs (pistils) weave throughout the sticky buds at the end of flowering. The contrasting color and sweet berry aroma from the buds provides an unbelievable bag appeal.
The sativa genes reveal themselves via the plants' sheer size and conical-shaped buds, tapering towards the ends to look like tiny pine cones.
What are the Strawberry Cough feminized strain genetics?
Marijuana pioneer Kyle Kushman elevated the Strawberry Cough feminized weed to what it is today. However, things could have turned out so differently, had he gotten rid of the modest clone he got as a parting gift. Fortunately, the sweet strawberry aroma stopped him in his tracks, and he named the clone Strawberry Fields.
It's thought that Strawberry Fields was grown next to strawberry fields to mask the scent. This indica then took the fragrant fruits' aroma by good fortune, having grown next to it for many years.
As is the case with so many great strains, Kyle accidentally crossed the old-school Haze strain (sativa) with strawberry fields (indica) to develop the myth, the legend, Strawberry Cough.
Strawberry Cough feminized buds adopted the sweet strawberry taste from Strawberry Field and delivered a long-lasting cerebral high courtesy of the potent haze strain.
In 2004, Kushman handed out over 200 clones of Strawberry Cough to friends along a cross-country drive, from New York to California, where he wanted to grow cannabis legally. From then on, his name was permanently pegged on this highly sought-after strain.
