Banana Kush Feminized Seeds
The ancestry of Banana Kush boasts two sets of high quality Sativa genetics: a Skunk-Haze mix made from the all-time great Silver Haze crossed with Skunk Kush, as well as the famously flavourful, mostly-Sativa hybrid NYC Diesel. Similarly, strains of the top quality Afghan Indica known as Kush are present on both sides of the family tree. As mentioned, Skunk Kush forms an important building block on the paternal side, while the pride of Californian cannabis. OG Kush is the mother plant used to make White Label Banana Kush. Plants grown from Banana Kush feminized cannabis seeds display typical Indica growth patterns.
This strain’s Sativa influence is mostly seen in its flower structure and, later, in the effect of its dried flowers. Vegetative growth is vigorous and reliable, with most plants producing a thick, productive main stem. And sturdy branches with short internodal gaps. During the blooming phase, Banana Kush can be expected to increase its vegetated height by 100% to 150%. As a general rule, plants grown from seed should be induced to flower at a little less than half their desired final size. While clones should be vegetated to about 60% of their intended size, then flowered.
In the first weeks of flowering. Banana Kush slows its upward growth as the first calyxes develop at its many budding sites. Before the midpoint of its 7 to 9 week flowering time. This strain will be devoting most of its energy to producing multitudes of small, solid, resinous calyxes at each node, which quickly build into thick knots of bud. Flower clusters often take on a conical or pyramidal shape with an extra wide base tapering to a blunt point. Due to the extra vigorous budding of Banana Kush, the terminal buds at the top of its main stem. And branches often join with the flower clusters below them to form large colas, despite the calyxes’ tendency to cluster at nodes, rather than ‘run’ between them.
