Strain Grow Information
Juggernaut is a strong and enduring strain that can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. Its relatively small plant height of around 2.5 feet, means that it can be grown in limited space, whilst it provides good yields, especially outdoors.
As it originates in countries with hot climates, likely, the best environments for growing are also sunny and hot. Though it should be noted that some of its countries of origin have a dry heat, whilst others have more of a dense rainforest-type environment and climate.
If grown in a greenhouse, you can expect higher yields and a powerful dose of THC. It’s essential to pay close attention to the plant throughout, ensuring that light, oxygen, and nutrients can reach the whole plant.
It is not regarded as an easy plant to grow, which might go some way to explaining why it can be difficult to get hold of.
It’s possible to order Juggernaut seeds from a wide range of online and in-person seed Dispensaries.
However, it should be noted that due to at least two different strains using the Juggernaut name, you should check which parents were used in the particular strain’s creation. It can be difficult to obtain the seeds due to Juggernaut being a rare strain that is in high demand.
Juggernaut will usually reach the flowering stage between 7 and 9 weeks, with harvesting at around 10 weeks.
Juggernaut can provide good yields when grown indoors, typically around 14 ounces per square meter. When cultivated outdoors, growers can expect between 15-20 ounces per plant. Of course, for the best results, the proper care and attention need to be paid to the plant throughout the process.
