Yield: Moderate to high 

Grow Difficulty: Moderate 

Climate: Keep humidity down to around 40 percent while flowering to protect against mold. Banana Kush performs best if kept between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Feeding: Banana Kush can be fed heavily. Keep the plant strong with micronutrients to help keep powdery mildew from infiltrating the garden.
