Tips for Growing Chernobyl Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and General Hydroponics 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: Bred by TGA Genetics, Chernobyl is a hybrid cross between Trainwreck, Jack’s Cleaner, Space Queen, and Trinity. The strain lends stability to the Trainwreck bud structure and flavor. With a sweet lemon-lime aroma, Chernobyl delivers blissful effects that help combat depression and bad moods.

Grow Techniques: Outdoors, this plant can produce high-quality yields, especially under a California sun. Top the plant early in the vegging cycle to promote bushy growth, then stay on top of pruning, as this plant will get unruly if you let your guard down. To the delight of trimmers, Chernobyl’s leaf and bud structure make trimming easy.

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: Moderate

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Keep plants pruned to help with airflow during more humid months outdoors. This plant generally prefers temperatures that stay between 68 and 80 degrees.

Indoor/Outdoor: This plant has the ability to grow big beautiful colas, so outdoor growing is typically preferred.

Feeding: Moderate feeding should take care of this strain. Keep the big outdoor plants happy with micro-nutrients that help prevent pests and diseases from infiltrating the garden.
