You have to feed your plants a concentrated solution of mineral salt nutrients. Your Cheese plants will absorb the food faster than if you use soil, which means quicker growth and greater yields. On the downside, you have to be precise with this method of feeding because nutrient burn is possible.

When you place an exhaust fan near the top of your grow room, it removes warmer air. Therefore, it ensures the room’s temperature remains at optimum levels.

As Cheese is best grown indoors, it makes sense to discuss cannabis gardens for the home. However, purchasing a grow tent can be expensive. You could save a lot of money by making your own grow tent for a fraction of the cost. You can purchase everything you need on Amazon! However, be sure to familiarize yourself with your state’s marijuana cultivation laws before growing the Cheese strain.

Metal Halide (MH) and High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights are the most common HID light variety. MH lights are best during the vegetative stage, while HPS is better for flowering. If you purchase HID lights, you need a ballast. Magnetic ballasts are relatively inexpensive, but high-quality digital versions are a better option.

7 – Screen of Green (SCROG)

Your lighting system will dictate the types of fan that you purchase. If you use a HID system, be aware that it produces a lot of heat. Therefore, you will need at least one large fan or several medium-sized ones.

It is a simple low-stress training (LST) technique that involves using a screen. While the standard LST method involves tying down the plant, SCROG requires a little patience. You use a screen to keep the plants in check. When the branches grow through the holes in the screen, tuck the branches back down. If you get it right, your plants should produce several colas instead of a single main one.

Fans are an essential aspect of any grow garden, and the Cheese strain won’t grow well without them! Remember, your plants need CO2 to go through the process of photosynthesis effectively.

4 – Choosing Your Grow Lights

When you total up the cost of all of these, you can create a marijuana ‘garden’ for well under $200. It isn’t the most sophisticated setup, but it will do the job.

As Cheese is an indica, it remains bushy in shape when you grow it. As a result, there is a risk of your crop developing bud rot or mold if exposed to excessive moisture. It is also essential to consider trimming and pruning the plant if necessary. You can control how Cheese grows by adopting the Screen of Green training method.

Indoor/0utdoor: Cheese grows best indoors where it can be in a warmer climate. If you live in a warmer, more humid climate, try growing Cheese outside.

Yield: Moderate to high

Grow techniques: Cheese grows bushy, which makes it a great candidate for SCROG (screen of green), as you can trellis the plants to increase the yield. It performs well either in soil or hydro, and is a friendly plant for novice growers.

Grow difficulty: Easy

Flowering time: 8-9 weeks

Climate: Best kept between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. This strain can handle humidity fluctuations.

Strain overview: Originating in England around the 1980s, Cheese is known for its savory cheese aroma and well-rounded high. Big Buddha Seeds are known to have the best Cheese genetics available. They bring a pure Afghani indica into old Cheese genetics to create a powerful plant that still has all the unique Cheese characteristics.

Feeding: Cheese doesn’t have many unique feeding requirements, so just make sure to feed your plant moderately.

If you’ve done everything properly, week 4 marks the week before the pre-flowering stage and throughout this week you’ll see the flowering sites slowly turning light green, just have in mind that if the leaves are turning light green it’s most likely a sign of nutrient deficiencies but if the only thing turning light green are the flowering sites, everything is as it should.

As said above, if everything goes correctly you plant should have developed from 2-4 pairs of “true” leaves and if you’re planning on performing any type of plant training, now would be the right time.

Nowadays, almost 30 years after its discovery, Cheese’s smell is associated with a super potent effect and can be found on most seed banks around the world and is present in most coffeeshops in Amsterdam.

Week 5 – Pre-flowering stage

Remember that cannabis thrives in certain conditions so it’s essential to maintain these conditions, especially during the flowering stage, you should keep the relative humidity around 55% and the temperature between 18-25°C.

You can expect a strong earthy, fruity, and sour tangy aroma that tastes just as it smells, an ideal strain for extractors and hash makers, this pungent terpene profile consists of the following main terpenes:

Week 3 – Vegetative stage

This unique terpene profile results in a 30% Sativa and 70% Indica effect that offers an extremely narcotic couch-lock effect that will have you melting in the nearest chair, a great strain for smoking after a long day of work.

Week 7 marks the second half of the flowering stage, these are the final weeks before your plant is ready for harvest, by now you should already be feeding a full dose of Bloom nutrients, always looking out for signs of deficiencies which can end up affecting the buds and you don’t what that to happen at this stage.
