Harlequin Strain Origins

This strain is a descendant of Swiss Sativa, Thai, and Columbian Gold sativas and the indica known as Nepali. This diverse combination of strains delivers an energizing high that comes on quickly.
The sativa effect of Harlequin has led to its widespread use all over the world. You’ll find this popular strain in coffee joints and medical marijuana dispensaries across the globe.
Growing Harlequin Feminized Seeds
Harlequin should be harvested early because the CBD levels degrade with time. The plant is a heavy yielder, so be prepared for large colas. Do this by training the plant to ensure there is sufficient airflow within its canopies for a great yield.
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall, or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.
This strain grows well either hydroponically or in the soil. A controlled environment is preferred to make sure that the CBD is well-maintained. The plant can hold high humidity levels and should be kept between 72 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Excessive heat may cause the plant to dry up and eventually wither.
This marijuana strain can both be grown indoors and outdoors. The farmer should ensure the soil is rich in nutrients by watering it with compost tea. In cases where you have grown this strain hydroponically, give the plant lots of oxygen in the later stages of flowering to increase bud production.
Growing this strain is not very hard. In fact, it is ranked as moderate.
Flowering and Harvesting
When grown indoors, Harlequin will flower in about 8-9 weeks. Yields should be about 14 ounces per 3-foot area. When grown outdoors, it will yield about 17 ounces of usable marijuana per plant. Harvest during early fall.
