Why grow sativa?
Sativas are enticing to the connoisseur who is chasing the various effects. Sativa growers are typically at home growers because their lower yields make for a lower profit. However, sativa strains can endure heat better than other strains, which is good for indoor gardens. Also, quicker vegetative growth can offset the longer.
Smoking marijuana from a sativa clone should be about as energizing as a double shot of espresso. Typically used during the daytime, sativa will hit you with their strong cerebral properties. Many marijuana users pick sativa when they’re looking for a euphoric and creative buzz.
Sativas tend to have a fainter, fruity aroma.
Sativa strains and sativa-dominant hybrids are popular among growers for their ease of cloning. Many sativa strains don’t need a rooting hormone and will flourish in just their medium and nutrient combination, however, there are still some sativa strains that need a little more attention.
Rooting Times for Sativa Clones:
Clones from sativa plants will generally root faster than clones from indica plants. There are a lot of factors that influence rooting time, most importantly the skill of the grower, but many growers have seen root growth on sativa strains as early as 4 – 5 days after cutting, leading to developed roots ready to plant by 11 – 13 days after cutting. Quickly getting into the flowering cycle with sativa strains is recommended for indoor growers with a small space, because sativa strains can double or triple their size during the flowering stage.
