How To Grow Watermelon Candy

How To Grow Watermelon Candy

Thanks to some solid feminized genetics, growing Watermelon Candy is a fairly straightforward task suitable for all levels of expertise. So newcomers and seasoned cannabis growers alike can rest assured they're getting a cooperative and receptive plant in Watermelon Candy.

Variety Feminized
Height Indoor Medium
Height Outdoor Medium
Flowering Time 8 - 9 Weeks
Harvest Period (Outdoor) Late September / Early October
Yield Indoor 400–450g/m²

Giving the grower plenty of options, Watermelon Candy flourishes both indoors and outdoors. As she's a modest, medium-sized plant, she's unlikely to take up too much room. All that's required is a little TLC and maintenance along the way to keep her in check and productive. However, those looking to implement LST and other training and pruning methods will find that Watermelon Candy reacts favourably.

When cultivated indoors, all that's needed is a suitable growing room, tent, or closet space. Coupled with a consistent light source and plenty of ventilation, Watermelon Candy will easily settle in for her growing cycle. With an average flowering time of around 8–9 weeks, she certainly doesn't hang around long, but still churns out rewarding yields of up to 450g/m².

If you're fortunate enough to have a reliable outdoor space, balcony, or even a greenhouse to grow her in, you'll be blown away by just how well she performs. Watermelon Candy is a resilient and robust plant that is well-equipped to the conditions of the great outdoors. As a rule of thumb, position her somewhere where she can get plenty of light, and come late September or early October, you'll be golden.

Watermelon Candy Automatic

While the original Watermelon Candy provides an easygoing home growing project, there is an option for those that want an even easier, and faster, ride. The team at Zamnesia Seeds combined the original strain with some quality ruderalis genetics to create an autoflowering variant that is truly effortless to cultivate.

Parents: Watermelon x Candy Kush x Ruderalis
Genetics: Auto Hybrid
Flowering Time: 9-10 weeks from seed to harvest
THC: 20%
CBD: 0-1%
Flowering Type: Autoflowering

While she is more or less a copy of the feminized version, a few subtle differences set Watermelon Candy Automatic apart. For example, she takes only 9–10 weeks from seed to harvest, and with no light cycle changes to worry about, she'll automatically progress into her fruitful flowering cycle. Although she'll grow to a similar height, her yields are a little less abundant. Expect to harvest 350–400g/m² indoors and around 50–100g/plant outdoors. Her THC level is slightly lower at 20%, but she still provides the outstanding effects and flavours her parent has become known for.

It all comes down to what kind of operation you’re running. But in any case, Watermelon Candy’s dazzling aroma and flavour will permeate every grow.
