|Growing Tips||Excellent adaptability to indoor growing. In order to obtain the best results indoors, we recommend warm temperatures (around 25ºC) during the growing stage and the first 4 weeks of flowering. In the last month, temperatures should be reduced to 20ºC for the rest of the flowering process.
Very suitable for SOG crops due to its great yield in the main cola, or for SCROG, horizontal or network growing due to its excellent yield in the lateral branches and its vigorous reaction to pruning.
Outdoors, it is a very adaptable plant that has been grown for years in hot climates, and in climates with a mild start of autumn.
Orient Express is a strain that generally requires high levels of nutrients, therefore feeding her generously until the 6th flowering week in order to produce a boundless harvest.
Genetic analyses show that Orient Express has a unique genotype, of high genetic variability, only showing direct kinship with our China Yunnan used to develop this hybrid.
