Compared to many other strains, Red Congolese does not take a great deal of maintenance or expertise, making it an ideal choice for novice cannabis growers. Red Congolese requires a relatively mild climate, with temperatures that stay within a certain range (namely 22-28 degrees Celsius). Like most cannabis strains, Red Congolese does not do well in extreme cold or heat.
Nonetheless, Red Congolese can be cultivated in both indoor and outdoor environments. Heights vary based on the precise genetics of the crop, as well as the cultivation process. For taller plants, growers may need to trim the leaves on top to ensure that sunlight reaches every part of the plant. The height may also be a problem in smaller indoor environments, so ample space and regular trimming are both necessary for Red Congolese plants. Even though it is relatively low-maintenance, Red Congolese is not the most productive strain of cannabis. On average, it takes Red Congolese plants about 10-12 weeks to flower indoors, and potentially a little longer if grown outdoors. Additionally, the yield per plant is especially low, about 450 grams per plant.
