Strain Overview: Produced by Apothecary Genetics, Grape Ape was created by crossing Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani strains. It is known for its large, dense indica-dominant buds. While the name comes from the size, smell, and sometimes the color of the buds, the grape flavor is recognizable and has a heavy-hitting indica high that will help with pain and stress management.
Grow Techniques: Grape Ape grows well indoors, offering large yields in compact spaces with its short stature and dense buds. The plants will grow dense and thick, so the lower canopy should be cleared to improve circulation and reduce humidity. Hydroponic growing will help keep the plant strong and well-fed to promote big buds.
Flowering Time: 7-8 weeks
Yield: Moderate to high
Grow Difficulty: Moderate
Climate: Plants grow best between 68-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideally, keep the humidity low–between 30-40% RH–as the flowers finish.
Indoor/Outdoor: Indoor growing helps prevent mold in the large dense buds, but Grape Ape can also be grown outside. Growing in a covered outdoor space, like a greenhouse, will help ensure that moisture won’t rot the buds.
