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: Lemon Skunk was created in Amsterdam by crossing two different Skunk varieties. It took off as a popular strain with growers and consumers for its high yield and quality buds. This hybrid’s lemony, earthy flavor prefaces an uplifting and energizing high.

Grow Techniques: This plant needs room to grow vertically. If growing indoors, use either soil or hydroponic setups, but switch your plant to flowering before they grow too big. Outdoors, this plant will take off in the sun and produce large yields. Have trellising in place to support the buds and branches as they stretch. 

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: High

Grow Difficulty: Easy to moderate

Climate: Lemon Skunk can handle wetter and more humid climates due to its sativa bud structure. It prefers temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Indoor/Outdoor: Grows best outdoors where the plant can reach its fullest potential. Lemon Skunk can grow just fine indoors, but space can become an issue.

Feeding: If growing outside, start with healthy soils and feed with compost teas. Top-dress with diverse nutrients throughout the season. Indoors, this strain can take moderate feedings.
