Tips for Growing Hindu Kush 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: Hindu Kush is a landrace strain from the Hindu Kush mountain range in Pakistan and Afghanistan. It’s been grown and consumed for centuries, and remains cherished for its calming and therapeutic high. The earthy flavor and smell is reminiscent of Afghani hash, and Hindu Kush genetics have been behind the production of Middle Eastern hashish for ages.

Grow Techniques: Hindu Kush is an indica strain, which means its growth is short, dense, and bushy. This can be taken advantage of when growing indoors in small spaces. Hydroponically, Hindu Kush takes off and produces large resinous buds. SOG (sea of green) is recommended for maximum yields. Keep the airflow strong in the garden to help reduce humidity in the dense canopy.

Flowering Time: 7-8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Hindu Kush likes a dry climate with low humidity. It can handle cold temperatures well but suffers with moisture. Ideally, keep this strain between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: This plant performs well indoors and out as long as humidity and moisture is low.

Feeding: Go heavy on the CalMag and nitrogen to start, and end with strong bloom recipes to help produce dense buds.
