The predominantly cannabis variety Astroboy grows in indoor and outdoor, and during flowering provides growers with weighty, dense cones. A sweet, musky aroma and a soft, relaxing effect that relieves stress and soothes the soul.
Astroboy is a compact plant that sometimes surprises even experienced gardeners with its crop. Only 20% of the plants are Sativa, but those bushes in which the Sativa gene is expressed are quite easy to grow up to 2m. This is the winning variety at the Cannabis Cup, which was held in Argentina, 2010. 5 years earlier, the variety was awarded the second prize at the Highlife Cannabis Cup.
Features of growing Astroboy
The phenotype shows good results in any soil. It does not need a lot of water, but it needs to be watered steadily, paying special attention to the process. The manufacturer recommends after the growing season to transplant the plant in the open air or larger pots. For example, boxes of 9-10l are suitable for such work. Lighting plays a special role in growing Astroboy.
Astroboy needs a lot of light during the flowering period, but it is better to place the lamps a little further from the bush. For this purpose, DNaT 400W lamps are suitable for each m2. As a photoperiod, the best option would be a light / dark ratio of 12/12, 16/8, or intermediate values.
Aroma and effect of Astroboy
Sweet taste and musky smell – this is what Astroboy remembers. According to the effect, the predominance of Sativa genes is felt, although they are an order of magnitude smaller than individual genes. It has a cerebral effect with wave-like dynamics.
The variety does not require a lot of fertilizer, but if the grower wants to try to feed the brood, then organics will do it best. The plant behaves best when using the SOG technique. A sea of greenery will increase productivity several times.
