Tips for Growing Cherry Pie 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: The combination of Durban Poison and Granddaddy Purple, two highly popular strains, resulted in this sweet and tart-tasting hybrid. Cherry Pie offers a well-balanced high that will allow you to function throughout the day without feeling bogged down.

Grow Techniques: Cherry Pie can be grown indoors or out, ideally in soil. It is a clone-only strain, which can make it difficult to acquire, and it is known to have problems self-pollenating. Closely regulating the grow space will help lower the odds of this happening. Prune the plant slowly in cycles so that the plant does not feel shocked or stressed, which often causes hermaphroditic formations. Grown right, Cherry Pie proves to be resistant to diseases and pests.

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Prefers warmer temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but keep the humidity low during flowering (40-50% RH).

Indoor/Outdoor: Does well in indoors and out. When nights are warm, try growing Cherry Pie outdoors in soil.

Feeding: Organics will help the plant get its nutrients without stressing it too much. If you have a solid understanding of nutrients, start slow and observe the plant’s response.
