Growing Remedy Some information and Tips
For better yields, you may use coco fiber or rock wool. Never overwater the plants to avoid stressing them. Soil pH should only be between 6.0 and 7. If pH is low, you may add some lime and wood ash. Using LED lights for lighting is advised. Also, it is difficult to obtain Remedy seeds online, so better obtain clippings for cloning.
In watering, make sure the soil has absorbed the water properly before the next one. Overwatering will drown your plants and promote the growth of molds and milder. If you will be growing it indoors, maintain the warmth of the soil. Soil should have an adequate pH.
Remedy loves a diet of nitrogen, magnesium, and calcium as with other strains but that doesn’t mean it will thank you for overfeeding. During the flowering stage, it loves being sprinkled with phosphorus.
For the growing method, Remedy performs best with either Sea of Green or Screen of Green setup.
