Trainwreck Strain Grow Info
Trainwreck plants require a lot of space as they tend to grow tall and have a thick bush. The strain is versatile and can flourish both in an indoor and outdoor setting. You can either use seeds or cuttings to grow tropical Trainwreck strain. This marijuana strain is relatively easy to grow, therefore, suitable for beginner growers.
Trainwreck weed requires a moderate climate where it is warm and dry. Although it can handle temperature changes, it’s essential to maintain it between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. It would help if you learned to trim your plants regularly to prevent them from growing tall with thick stems that produce non-quality buds. Failure to trim allows the plant to spread out, occupying too much space while blocking out sunlight and nutrient access by the lower branches, thus exposing them to humidity.
Tropical Trainwreck strain needs a lot of nutrients to produce quality buds; therefore, use soil rich in nutrients and minerals like calcium, magnesium, and nitrogen. It is recommended that when this cannabis strain enters the flowering phase, top dress the soil with amendments like bat guano, bone meal, and worm castings.
You must also stop trimming once your plants enter the flowering stage, as it may cause them to go into shock. Only remove the dead branches and leaves. The flowering phase for Trainwreck weed strain lasts for 56-63 days.
Unfortunately, Trainwreck cannabis strain is prone to diseases and pest infestations, especially spider mites which love warm and dry places. However, this pest is tough to identify. If you see little white dots or spider webs on your plants, it is a clear sign of spider mite. With indoor weed, you can increase the humidity levels and reduce the temperature. Alternatively, you can use pyrethrum as it’s a natural insecticide. But during the flowering stage, use neem oil.
Flush your plants three weeks before harvest time to remove all the chemicals. Failure to do will give you buds that have a bitter taste because of the chemical residue.
