My Snowcap Strain results are not going to be the same as your results. Not being rude... just the facts here. Everyone that grows, grows using techniques and technologies that are available to them, such that no individual grower can replicate the results of any other. You can come close, but it is never the same. Therefore, please do not use this info to create expectations for your own crop yeild. Everyone will have different experiences growing a certain strain; I am just sharing my experiences with you. Also, I used to try to lay out a history for the strains that I am covering here, but I have found cannabis strain histories to be virtually impossible to accurately detail. Due to this, I have limited the detail to which I describe the history of strains to my pages. Thanks for reading my site. I hope you enjoy the information.
Snowcap Strain = Humboldt Snow x Unknown Haze.
This plant is a sativa dominant hybrid available by clone only.
Snowcap cannabis strain is a very nice sativa, with effects that range from euphoric to happy to creative. From a medical standpoint, Snowcap is great for relieving stress and anxiety and also is known to do wonders for one's appetite.
The most common flavors put forth by this strain are: citrus - mostly lemon with some spice notes of nutmeg and vanilla.
This particular sativa-leaning phenotype was grown and trained as a single-stem plant with 1 main colas per plant. As you can see - this strain exhibits short branching due to the close internodes.
As an outdoor plant or greenhouse plant Snowcap - has the potential to become much larger.
Trimming is about average due to the large leaves and the calyx-to-leaf ratio. The quality of the yield is is just amazing. Big fat buds on every part of the plant. I can't wait to see how big this strain gets during the next round.
Flowering period of 56 to 60 days, that's about 8 weeks.
The yield was heavy.
Humboldt Snow x Unknown Haze (Sativa / Indica)
Not at liberty to discuss at this time.
The actual origins of the Snowcap cannabis strain are pretty fuzzy.
Snowcap is believed to have come from Humbolt Snow crossed with a Haze - but it is unknown which haze it was crossed with. It is usually found in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
Dirt based mediums, hydroponic, grown indoors and outdoors.
Snowcap is pretty easy to grow. The plant is fairly easy going overall. Regular feedings are necessary in order to maintain a healthy growth cycle.
Have had absolutely no issues with getting cuttings to root. In fact, the pics on this page are rooted cuttings taken from the mother plant (mother plant is one of the last pictures on this page).
You know, I really don't like trying to figure out expected yield. Absolutely everything from plant size to nutrients, pH, light spectrum, soil, plant structure, bugs, etc. effects the yield of a strain.
What I can tell you about these particular plants is that they were grown to a height of about 5 feet tall (including the container) and each plant yielded 3.5 to 5 ounces.
As far as I am concerned, any time you can get more than 1/4 pound off of ONE plant - you are definitely on the right track.
In general flowering terms it will finish at 8-10 weeks, indoor. In the northern hemisphere (Southern States, Spain, Italy, France etc.) this strain will finish in early-mid October.
Snowcap cannabis strain has a very heady, eye effecting high. The effects are uplifting, mood elevating and well known for it's ability to relax a patient.
If you have access to some Snowcap cannabis strain cuttings - and you have the inclination and the room in your operation to add a few of these babies to the rotation - you would surely be making a solid decision. Get some, try it, think about it. You wont regret it - and you'll feel great as well!
