  1. I’ve been growing pinks for a number of years, trust me when I say it’s not worth growing anything else besides pink kush. I cut it in 10 weeks flower. 3.5 a light minimum using 1000w gavitas. Everyone loves pinks.

  2. I am currently growing pink kush. The flowers started a few weeks ago. I have a lot of flowers but they seem to be taking forever to get any size.
    I live in Canada near Ottawa Ontario so you are aware of my climate.

  3. I’m currently growing 5 pink kush and 5 blue dream outdoor in raised garden beds. The blue dream flowering began one week before the pink kush showed signs of flower. 6 of these plants are over 10ft. And I’m just curious to know how much weight I’ll harvest. After properly dried and cured. I’ll keep u posted. Contact me via email.

  4. Pink kush is an amazing plant to grow but takes alot of patients. It is well worth the wait buds look amazing fat and covered in crystals dont let the orange hairs fool you when getting around the eighth week three more to go.

  5. Medical cannabis user for a little over 8 years, 4-5 companies and then i found pink kush by medreleaf, life changer for a veteran with a broken neck, i have a plate a stuff now So im in decent shape and thanks to pink kush i dont use pharmacetical pain meds ecxept tylenol the odd time. Used Close to 100 strains through the lps a this is my go too bar none. If im on daddy duty ill have s pink kush oil in small doses and smoke a little Cheese or koshef, maybe eran almog but nothing comes close to the cheese that i had access too and i was getting 300 gs a month to my door for 3-4 years before i found it, tweeds OG kush and hindu kush was great but not this good

  6. Just have started my 1sr pink kush plant. 60 days approx in veg no flowers yet but this strain is bushy as hell! Never seen so much tight veg.ive just turned my c-9 led to bloom to see if that ramps up flowering .

  7. Hey im growing some pink kush and ive found it to be susceptible to light mold. Heavy feeders too. My plants seemed to enjoy a maximum dose of nutes once in full flower but not so much in veg. Up in BC Canada my plants would have liked to grow into mid november but weather wont permit. As a result the finished product was energetic with a slow ending of couchlock. Wouldnt recommend this strain for outdoor northern growers. Go with sweetpinkgrapefruit if growing outside.
