A Primer on Growing an Autoflowering Gorilla Glue Strain

Must read

The autoflowering Gorilla Glue strain available at Fast Buds is one of their most popular strains. It’s highly rated by growers and users, extremely potent (with up to 24% THC), and produces huge yields. The plant is well known for its ability to grow to large sizes as well as for the fact that it can produce huge yields of buds in under three months.

Their Gorilla Glue strain produces dark green buds with fat calyxes that produce huge amounts of resin. It’s not just beloved for its THC content and for the relaxing, heady buzz it delivers, but for its unique terpenes, which produce a flavor that has been likened to pine and citrus. It’s also popular with growers because it’s capable of producing yields of up to 600 g/m2, and Fast Buds’ autoflowering strain will start to develop flowers on its own in 9 to 10 weeks.

If you’re thinking about growing their autoflowering Gorilla Glue strain, here are some pointers for growing, right from the source, 2Fast4Buds.com:

– It’s recommended that you use an 11L pot for maximum growth, but you can grow this strain in smaller pots, too – as small as 3L. Just remember that the smaller the pot, the smaller the plant is likely to be.

– Avoid transplants if at all possible. This strain does not react well to transplanting and is likely to be stunted.

– The team at Fast Buds suggests a 20/4 light cycle for optimal production – that is, give the plant 20 hours of access to light followed by a 4 hour period of darkness.

– During the early stages of growth, it’s advisable to tie down your plant’s branches and leaves. This can promote the development of an even canopy. Plants that are not tied down may exhibit a tendency to reach for the light, being “stretched out” and leggy instead of developing a healthy, dense, low, and even canopy. Tying down your plants early on can help you train your plants for even growth and optimal health and production. You can even follow the “screen of green,” technique, otherwise known as SOG or SCROG, which maximizes the surface area of the plant’s light exposure, stimulating production.

– Because this strain produces huge yields, it can be highly beneficial to provide support to the plant, especially to the side branches during the flowering stage. This will alleviate some of the stress on the plant and will allow it to focus on the production of dense buds. Supporting the branches will also diminish the likelihood that the weight of the buds will injure the plant or snap branches, and it also gives you the ability to train your plants in such a way that their foliage has better access to light.

– This Gorilla Glue strain is also resistant to colder temperatures and is better able to tolerate them without experiencing a heightened risk of developing mold or powdery mildew. It’s particularly tolerant of cooler nighttime temperatures.

– This strain reacts well to pruning and light defoliation, but it’s a best practice to leave the larger fan leaves in place to ensure that the plant continues to produce adequate nutrients to promote bud production. You should also avoid hard leaf toppings.
