Clementine is a relatively easy strain to grow and is a suitable bud for novice growers to try their hand at. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, depending on the space you have available. You will get a small yield indoors, but it’s still a satisfactory amount. It’s good for beginners, as the plant is more resistant to bugs and mildew than other strains, meaning you don’t have to be as attentive as you might otherwise be. Nevertheless, you still need to make time to trim and prune this plant regularly as it can grow quite tall.
In terms of climate, you’ll need to live somewhere sunny and if possible semi-humid to get the best out of this plant. This plant loves warm, moist areas to grow in, so ensure you can maintain that if you’re growing indoors. Keep it at a temperature of about 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.
One thing to note when growing is that this strain has a pungent and stunning smell, but that smell is also stronger during the growing process than other strains. For some this will be a plus as it will build anticipation for when it finally come to smoke it, but for others it’ll be an issue if you need to ensure discretion.
Finally, Clementine is a strain which benefits a lot from curing your buds to help retain that incredible taste. Curing is easy enough: firstly, hang the buds upside down or place on a drying rack at an environment with 50 perfect humidity and 70 degrees. Do this until they detach easily from the stem–this should take about a week. Once done, store the buds in an airtight container and keep them at about 65 percent humidity at a temperature of 70 degrees. During this process, you’ll need to check on them daily to make sure no mold is growing, especially during the first week. You can cure these buds for up to 6 weeks to unleash their full potential, so they’re a great choice if you don’t mind waiting around.
