Cultivating Lemon Skunk Cannabis Strain

Cultivating Lemon Skunk can be a rewarding experience, whether you’re a seasoned grower or a beginner. Below, we’ll provide you with essential information on the best growing conditions, expected yield, harvest time, and tips for successful cultivation.

Ideal Growing Conditions

Lemon Skunk thrives in a climate similar to the Mediterranean, enjoying warm temperatures and abundant sunshine. It’s best suited for outdoor cultivation in regions with a Mediterranean-like climate, but it can also be grown indoors with proper environmental controls.

For indoor cultivation, maintain a consistent temperature of 68-80°F (20-27°C). Ensure the plants receive adequate light exposure by using high-quality grow lights or setting up a well-lit grow room. Lemon Skunk prefers a well-draining, nutrient-rich soil. Organic soil mixes or hydroponic systems are both suitable options. Proper ventilation and airflow are crucial to prevent mold and mildew issues.

Yield and Harvest Time

Lemon Skunk is known for its generous yields, making it popular among commercial growers. The actual yield depends on various factors such as the environment, cultivation techniques, and the specific phenotype of the strain.

Indoor plants typically yield around 1.5 to 2.5 ounces (42-70 grams) of buds per square foot. Outdoor yields can vary significantly but may reach up to 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms) per plant under optimal conditions.

Harvest time for Lemon Skunk usually occurs between 8 to 9 weeks of flowering, starting from the onset of the flowering stage. Outdoor growers can expect to harvest their plants from late September to early October, depending on local climate conditions.

Tips for Successful Cultivation

  • Provide ample sunlight or high-quality grow lights.
  • Maintain a temperature range of 68-80°F (20-27°C).
  • Use well-draining, nutrient-rich soil.
  • Ensure proper ventilation to prevent mold and mildew.
  • Monitor humidity levels to avoid excess moisture.
  • Harvest at the right time to maximize yield and potency.


  • All Cannabis strains, require a full spectrum nutrient complete with the macro nutrients such as Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium and the secondary nutrients and micronutrients like, calcium, sulphur, hydrogen, magnesium, manganese, carbon, iron, zinc etc.
  • Cannabis are big feeders!  Make sure it has all the nutrients it needs, particularly in the flowering stage, to help the buds become dense. Using soil is slightly more forgiving if you overdo it with the nutrients. If you are using a good quality soil, it will have a lot of nutrients in there already, so there is no need to add any during the seedling stage.
  • During the vegetative phase you will need to give your plant twice as much nitrogen as phosphorus, and three times more nitrogen than potassium. The nutrient ratios to look for on the bottle will be either 6-3-2 or 18-9-6. You should also add in some sulphur, magnesium, and calcium.  
  • During the flowering stage, change the ratio so you are using up to three times more phosphorus than nitrogen and potassium. Also continue to add in secondary nutrients such as iron, copper, and manganese.  Make sure to use orgnanic Bud Burst during flowering all the way as this will ensure a smooth finish with no chemical taste.   Amazing stuff!
  • For organic grows, we recommend Aptus Baseboost organic nutrient   with coco/perlite 70/30 ratio.   This stuff is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way making it great value.     Simply add the pellets to the coco as per the instructions and it will completely transform any inert growing medium into a powerful full spectrum grow media..   

Growing Tips

  • Your Lemon Skunk strain will need consistent air flow and good ventilation, whether you are choosing the perfect spot for an outdoor grow, or are growing in an indoor grow room. They need air that is rich in oxygen, to help prevent respiration, deter any pests, and allow your plant to grow healthy and strong. Use fans to help circulate air, or if you can afford it, exhaust systems are an excellent choice.

Why buy ‘Feminized’ Seeds

  • Marijuana plants are either male or female.   The male flower produces sacs or pollen designed to fertilize the female flower which produces white pistols designed to absorb the pollen.   If no male plants are present in the growing area, than the female plant will just grow larger and larger flowers in search of pollen.   These flowers are the cannabis buds that we all know and love.   The male plants hold only minuscule amount of THC, while the female flowers are oozing with THC crystals (the good stuff).   For this reason, marijuana growers are seeking only female plants in the grow room (unless they want alot of seedy buds).Feminsed seeds have been cultivated in a precise way so that the seed is genetically more likely to produce a female plant.   Autoflower seeds automatically transition from the vegetative phase to the flowering stage without you needing to adjust their light exposure.   Fore more detailed growing information, see our in depth grow guide.
