Tips for Growing Cotton Candy Kush 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: Cotton Candy Kush is a fragrant hybrid cross between Lavender and Power Plant. The structure of the bud is fluffy like cotton candy with a sweet floral flavor and aroma. The high is potent and powerful, and will have consumers feeling relaxed and pain-free.

Grow Techniques: Grow indoors hydroponically to help this plant take its cotton candy form. The buds swell with proper feeding and become covered in trichomes under proper lighting. Remove lower foliage from the plant while topping early on to promote a bushy canopy. Provide support for the buds as they get heavy.

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: This strain is more mold-resistant than most with its airy structure, but still be mindful of high humidity when growing it.

Indoor/Outdoor: Cotton Candy Kush is suitable for both indoors and outdoors.

Feeding: Moderate feeding should keep Cotton Candy Kush happy. Make sure the plant is getting enough bloom nutrients to let the resinous crystals take over the plant toward the end of its flowering cycle.
