33 days, the structure is created, now the buds begin to fatten

Because Sativas usually come from tropical zones where there the photoperiod barely differs from 12 hours light and 12 of darkness, their stretch is greater than that of indicas since the plants have to be able to grow enough to ensure their offspring. The evolution of cannabis and its great potential to adapt to the environment has led to these different traits in indica and sativa plants.
In the case of pure indicas, during the stretch period they will usually only double their size. If you start with 30cm plants these will end up with a height of around 60cm at the end of the stretching period.

Before being harvested, the vast majority of the cannabis plants leaves should be a yellow colour. This indicates a lack of nitrogen and other nutrients in them, which assures us that the buds will have a superior flavour and aroma since there will be no interferences caused by the salts accumulated in the leaves, stems and flowers.
Phases of plant life
Not all indica or sativa plants are the same, so their diet shouldn’t be either. For example, if two Indica strains are grown in the same crop, we may have to make small variations in the feeding between the different plants. However, often these nutrient variations are not very large, so we can find a midpoint that works well for both types of genetics.

At this time the plants have already switched hormone production to focus on creating buds. The nutrient levels required will vary depending on the variety being grown, whether more indica or more sativa, it will require higher or lower levels of nutrients. This is also ruled by the duration of flowering in the genetics cultivated. If it is a more sativa-leaning plant with a long flowering period, nutrient levels are usually lower with a slower and more gradual increase week by week. If more indica-leaning plants are grown, having a shorter flowering, these usually consume a larger amount of nutrients in fewer weeks, having less time to finish their flowering.

Without a doubt, flowering is one of the crucial stages in cannabis cultivation. In this article we tell you everything you need to know about the blo

Very few growers have access to the genetics of “pure” Indica, Sativa or Ruderalis plants. These generally low-yielding ancestors of today’s popular strains are often far less pretty, medical and potent than strains which have been bred specifically for bud quality and yields.

Another unique property of Ruderalis strains is that, like hemp, these strains naturally tend to have higher levels of CBD which have many implications for medical uses such as anti-anxiety. That being said, these days there are also lots of low-CBD options for growers who prefer a more fast-paced experience.
Indica vs Sativa vs Ruderalis

What are the best strains of cannabis, the ones labeled Indica or Sativa or Auto-flowering? Which strains produce this or that effect? Which ones are “medical” and which aren’t? The sheer number of cannabis strains available today can be overwhelming, and it can be tough to cut through the marketing speak and find the information you’re really looking for!

The Sativa variety of marijuana tends to grow tall and lanky, with thin, fingerlike leaves. Sativas also generally have a longer flowering period and grow buds that are more airy and less dense than from an Indica.
Sativa Strains
Indica plants tend to be well-suited to growing indoors because of their shape, smaller size and quick time-to-harvest.

When it comes to the cannabis growing scene though, growers universally refer to various varieties as strains.
