Tips for Growing Alien OG Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and Botanicare are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: Alien OG is a cross between Tahoe OG and Alien Kush, inheriting a tendency toward heavy, high-quality yields and quick flowering cycles. This strain typically tests extremely high in THC, making it popular among high-tolerance consumers. Its dense, resinous buds carry an earthy, lemon-tinged aroma in demonstration of its OG Kush genetics.

Grow Techniques: A hydroponic setup can give Alien OG the precise nutrients it needs to flourish. Topping the plant promotes bushy growth and will lead to high yields in an SOG (sea of green) setup.

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Difficult

Climate: Alien OG buds are dense, meaning humidity needs to be monitored to prevent possible mold buildup. It performs best when kept in a climate that stays between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: Suitable for either indoor or outdoor gardens.

Feeding: Heavy feedings, increased as the plant takes in growth, will keep Alien OG charged and happy.
