Only water your growing plant when the top inch of soil is dry. You can tell when your plant is thirsty because the leaves will begin to droop and take on a limp, lifeless appearance.
Super Lemon Haze is a fast grower and can reach heights in excess of 78 inches in just seven to nine weeks. Even though it’s one of the tallest-growing strains, its yield is similar to much shorter varieties. In fact, Super Lemon Haze produces 1-3 ounces of bud per square foot (similar to Ghost Train Haze, which is half as tall). But where the plant lags in yield, it excels in speed of growth. If you choose the Super Lemon Haze strain over the Ghost Train Haze, you could be reaping the rewards of your labor a full month before the latter finishes flowering. Prodigious!
Coming in third, fourth, and fifth respectively are paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness. The nice thing about these last three is that they only rate a 2 on the side-effects scale. That’s not too bad for a strain that can relieve your pain and make you feel euphoric after a long, hard day.
Cannabis prefers a slightly acidic environment, so make sure your water is pH balanced accordingly (between 6.0 and 7.0 on the pH scale). You can buy pH increaser or pH decreaser at your local garden center.
Step one is to soak your seeds in a glass of water to “wake them up.” Remove the seeds from the water when a white taproot pokes its way out of the hull, but don’t leave the seeds soaking for more than 32 hours (they could drown, the poor things). If some seeds don’t produce a taproot after a little more than two days, they may be bad. Discard them and focus on the seeds that did produce.
Break down your buds into small pieces, and store them in glass jars with lids. These jars should be kept in the dark at a temperature between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit for one to three weeks. Crack the lids every day to let some fresh air in (like burping your Tupperware).

As soon as the seedling pokes its head through the dirt (Hello!), give it 18 hours of light followed by 6 hours of darkness. We recommend 315-watt bulbs and a 24-hour auto-timer so that you don’t have to get up in the middle of the night to turn off the grow lights (that’s a major buzzkill).
