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: King Louis XIII is thought to be a unique cut of OG Kush as they share many similar attributes. The buds offer a classic earthy Kush aroma, and the light green buds are dense and resin-packed. This indica-dominant strain is cherished for its relaxing effects that segue nicely into sleep.

Grow Techniques: King Louis XIII flourishes indoors in a hydroponic setup. Utilize a SOG (sea of green) or SCROG (screen of green) method with clones to fill your space. Train the plants and switch to flowering early to keep a continual rotation in your garden.

Flowering Time: 8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: If kept in a consistent climate, this strain will thrive and produce beautiful, dense buds. King Louis XIII prefers temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: Grow indoors to keep the plant protected from the elements. If grown outdoors, be aware of high humidity levels which can cause mold.

Feeding: Feed on the heavy side, especially with CalMag and phosphorus. Introducing CO2 to your grow space will help these buds pack on extra weight.
