How to grow Candy Rain

How to grow Candy Rain

Whether you’re new to the cannabis cultivation game or a veteran of the craft, growers are in luck with Candy Rain. She is a receptive and cooperative growing partner that can be cultivated in pretty much any environment—although she performs best in warm and sunny climates. Just provide a decent level of maintenance and upkeep, and she'll reward.

Grow Difficulty Beginner/Intermediate
Best Suited to Grow Indoor/Outdoor
Climate Sunny, Warm
Variety Feminized
Height Indoor 110–130cm
Height Outdoor 130–150cm
Flowering Time  9–10 Weeks
Harvest Period (Outdoor) October
Yield Indoor 450–550g/m²
Yield Outdoor  550g/plant

Candy Rain proves herself throughout each stage of the growing cycle. Though she requires a basic level of maintenance, she is by no means demanding. Reaching an average height of 130cm, she’ll slot perfectly into most grow rooms or outdoor spaces. And with a bit of LST, you can keep her even closer to the ground. More advanced cultivators can even try high-stress training techniques, such as topping and super cropping, to further control her structure and maximise yields.

Taking an average of 9–10 weeks to flower indoors, growers don’t have to wait long to secure a large haul of up to 450–550g/m². Outdoors, up to 550g/plant is up for grabs when harvest time rolls around in mid-October. A massive return regardless of where you choose to grow Candy Rain.
