Critters Cookies has a balanced structure in spite of its Sativa-leaning genes. It is relatively tall, but its lanky structure is quite sturdy. Its stalks are thick, as well as branches, do not break off when a gush of wind blows over it. Because of this, it has a better chance of performing well in the northern hemisphere in spite of its propensity for a Mediterranean climate.
Alternatively, growers can cultivate it indoors. The controllable environment allows one to adjust factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity to fit the current growing phase. For instance, the vegetative period will require at least 18 hours of light but, during flowering, it should be lowered to 12 hours. Temperatures should also be reduced to induce bud production.
Topping the plant may also be necessary. Apart from managing its height, it encourages better light and aeration in the lower method. Not to mention, it reduces the likelihood of humidity-related problems which can stunt its growth.
It works great in both the Sea and Screen of Green setups. Because it is quite compact, growers can place at least four seeds in a single square meter. The latter, on the other hand, requires installing a screen on top of the current canopy. It levels the top to distribute light evenly for better bud production. Regardless of which one chooses, both will double yields.
Critters Cookies has an indoor flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks, shorter than most Sativa-leaning strains. Growers can expect at least 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter at harvest.
In the northern hemisphere, Critters Cookies flowers from the last week of September to the middle of October. It yields at least 12 ounces of buds per plant once ready for harvest.
