Tips for Growing Dutch Treat 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: Dutch Treat is a popular strain in the Pacific Northwest thanks to its recognizable sweet piney scent, quality yields, and well-balanced high. This hybrid comes from British Columbia, not Amsterdam as the name might suggest. The high leans heavily on the indica side of the spectrum while still offering euphoric sativa traits.

Grow Techniques: Dutch Treat takes off indoors in either a hydroponic or soil setup. Its solid bud structure makes it popular with inexperienced trainers. Keep the lower half of the plant clear to send energy up to the colas.

Flowering Time: 6-8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Easy

Climate: Temperature should rest between 68-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep airflow up and humidity down to protect the quality of the buds.

Indoor/Outdoor: Dutch Treat can be grown indoors or out, but inside growing helps bring out its popular aroma and protects its terpenes.

Feeding:  Standard nutrients and feeding will keep this low-maintenance plant happy.
