  1. Using That Miracle-Gro soil is a big mistake. That stuff and anything that comes from them is Poison. Hawthorne/Monsanto are our enemies. If you’re more interested in finding out about how bad miracle gro really is you can find a link to the info and resources about it under my profile page in grow dairies. First thing I’d do is transplant out of that garbage and into some good soil. There’s a lot out there much better than that. Try some of your fox farm products.

  2. Nute burn!?! I dident even think about that. I bought Miracle-Gro soil to grow in. So now im not sure if its a watering issue or nute burn now. I would post a pix but dnt think i can here.

  3. I grew a few lemon skunk plants. they were actually clones I got from a friend & I put them in the ground like early July (is when I got them) they really came out amazing, grew tall & bushy. Me & my wife were very pleased. I wished I could’ve dropped them way sooner.. I say maybe over two pounds I got off the harvest. Smoked really good & we Love the sweet, earthy Taste. The best of it all.. it’s Super easy to grow.. I believe beginners can grow lemon skunk

  4. Hi there im on my third lemon skunk crop 1st was just 1 plant it was amazing it yeilded 9 ounces of beautifull tasting and Wonderful smelling buds it flowered for 10 weeks.

    My second i supercropped 1 plant over a 1.2 x 1.2 net surface. Now this crop was thru summer and towards the end we had a few weeks of 35c to 42c degree days witch i Couldn’t control and that only Flowered for 7 and a half weeks and i harvest 6 ounces of beauttiful smelling tasty buds.

    This time around iv got 4 plants not super cropped and thete in week 2 of flower now.

    Overall lemon skunk is an easy growing plant and is Very rewarding.
    It’s the only strain ill be growing from now on.

  5. I love this strain. Always comes through with generous yield. Stretches high. Agree about nute burn keep it lower. Great smoke and cures beautifully!

  6. Easy strain to grow. Very lanky, after streatch. Heavy buds will need support. Smell during flower is wonderful. Easy to nute burn so keep nutes at half strength. Responds well to pk boost during flower.
