Strawberry Kush is an Indica-dominant strain that displays many desirable Sativa characteristics. Grown from seed, phenotype variation is mostly expressed through small differences in height gain and flowering time. Bud formation remains quite consistent across different phenotypes. Indoor plants have a flowering time of 7 to 10 weeks and, on average, will triple their vegetated height as they bloom. Experienced growers of White Label Strawberry Kush feminized cannabis seeds tend to select the taller, longer flowering phenotypes for their higher yields.
Originally, Strawberry Kush was only available in clone form, and most indoor growers of this seed- strain achieve optimum results by flowering cuttings of selected mother plants. Plants grown from seed may simply be flowered as normal and will produce stunning results as long as the extra height gain of seed-plants is taken into account. This makes Strawberry Kush Feminized cannabis seeds a good choice for cultivation in a greenhouse or outdoors in a warm and sunny climate, where their Sativa-influenced height gain is an advantage.
Indoors, Strawberry Kush clones are well suited to ScrOG/SOG and super-cropping techniques. Taller phenotypes are also good for lollipopping, as they will produce the majority of their yield on the upper half of each plant. Upper branches tend to grow at a steep angle and often merge with the central cola, so removing the more expansive and less productive lower branches allows Strawberry Kush plants to be grown closer together.
In the flowering stage, Strawberry Kush shows off the best of its Indica and Sativa heritage. Calyxes quickly form at each node, then begin to cover the internodal gaps, so that the flower clusters join together, forming large colas on the main stem and at the top of its branches. This Haze-style expansion is fortified by the density and resin production of Afghani Indica (aka Kush). The end result is long, sparkling solid buds that retain a good proportion of their size and weight after harvest. Discreet growers should note that this strain’s characteristic aroma is often present in the flowering stage and plan accordingly.
The pistils of some prized Strawberry Kush phenotypes start out pink and change to a deep red as the flowers mature, giving dried buds an exotic appearance to match their spectacular aroma. When properly harvested and dried, their mouth-watering strawberry scent and flavour becomes much more powerful. To some connoisseurs, the appearance and aroma of Strawberry Kush buds are almost intoxicating by themselves.
While that unique flavour profile is one of the most recognisable and appealing features of White Label Strawberry Kush, don’t forget that this is a highly potent strain of hybrid cannabis. With excellent resin production inherited from both its Haze and Kush parents, Strawberry Kush imparts a powerfully relaxing Indica body-buzz that’s elevated and extended by a happy Sativa high.
