Supergirl is a sturdy plant that can withstand a variety of growing conditions. Still, it requires care especially against harsh weather such as the snow or heavy rains. For this reason, many growers prefer cultivating the strain inside controllable environments where temperatures, lighting, and humidity can be adjusted at whim.
It will need pruning when cultivated indoors. As alluded to earlier, it is quite branchy and dense with foliage. It can harbor moisture in between in the crevices of its broad fan leaves which inhibit light and air around the lower nodes if left unattended. Removing the parts will also improve nutrient distribution to healthier budding sites.
The Sea of Green works best with Supergirl. Its short and compact structure allows growers to place at least four in a single square meter. It not only maximizes a small space while producing higher yields. Using soil as a medium will improve terpene production so buds are more flavorful. However, a hydroponics setup will double turnouts, increase trichomes as it directs nutrients straight to the roots.
It takes between 7 to 9 weeks for Supergirl to fully mature. Usually, growers can expect between 16 to 19 ounces of buds per square meter. However, growers can further increase yields by applying certain growing methods.
