If you’re looking to cultivate your own Chernobyl, it will require a moderate level of effort. It’s not a total beginner herb to grow but neither is it as difficult as some of the more advanced strains. Nevertheless, you will need some care and ideally an outdoor grow space. An outdoor grow space will not only boost your yield but will allow this plant to grow superb colas that make the plant look beautiful in your bowl.
Chernobyl is a female seed sex with a flowering time of around 8 to 9 weeks. Its yield is average in comparison to most but if you’re assiduous and careful with your pruning you can push that yield to above average. Chernobyl is a plant that gets unruly quick, so you’ll need to be deliberate and regular with your pruning in order to get the most out of your seeds. Thankfully, the leaf and bud structure of Chernobyl makes it particularly easy to trim compared to the other plants in your allotment.
Keep it at temperature between 68 and 90 degrees for the best yield and a healthier plant. When it comes to feeding, start it at 4ml of pH Perfect Sensi Grow A&B (or your equivalent) for week 1, up to 8ml for week 2 and 16 ml thereafter through the 4-week growth cycle and 8-week bloom cycle. During the grow cycle, go for 18 hours light and 6 hours dark, before switching to 12 hours and 12 hours thereafter when the plant begins to bloom.
For supplements: During the growth cycle use 8ml B-52 each week, with 8ml voodoo juice for the first two weeks.
Once it hits bloom, add 8ml voodoo choice in weeks 1 and 2, use 8ml Big Bud week 2 through 5, use B-52 for weeks 3 through 7 and – for the coup de grace – use 8ml Overdrive in weeks 6 and 7.
This complex supplemental nutrition cycle is not an absolute must to get some usable weed, but it will ensure you get the most out of your Chernobyl seeds.
