Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and General Hydroponics are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.
Strain Overview: An old school sativa perfected in Northern California, this strain later made its way up to Alaska in the 1970s to be hybridized with an Afghani indica. Some believe a ruderalis variety also made its way into the breeding process. Alaskan Thunder Fuck (ATF) offers strong flavors of pine, lemon, and menthol. Its high is cerebral and is known to creep up on consumers slowly.
Grow Techniques: Grow ATF outside if you are looking for a cold weather strain. Make sure the plant has plenty of sun exposure and food to stimulate growth in colder climates. Growing your plants in trenches instead of pots will help keep the roots warmer in colder temperatures.
Flowering Time: 9 to 10 weeks
Grow Difficulty: Moderate
Climate: Thrives in cool to moderate climates between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Indoor/Outdoor: Grows well both indoors and outdoors. It’s an ideal strain for those further north who experience colder weather.
Feeding: Plants in cold climates need nutrients to grow big. Nutrient-rich soils high in nitrogen and microorganisms will ensure that your outdoor ATF takes off early in the season. Silica will help bring the buds to maturity and ensure they finish to their full potential.
