Selecting the right strain for your grow

The selection of the genetic to grow is a very delicate matter for a grower. They need to find the right balance between the growing conditions and the market demand. This is exactly the topic that Brandon Parker with Hygge Farms discusses in the latest episode of Grower Rebates. Specifically, Brandon dives into one genetic, namely Galatic Runtz. He points out that they selected this genetic because of how it grows, firstly. “One of the phenos we chose is the Galactic Runtz,” he explains in the video. “We chose this for the internodal spacing, as she’s got a bud every 3 inches, and then at the top, she consolidates down and stacks.”

This latter aspect is indeed one of the main reasons why Hygge Farms chose Galactic Runtz. “It is nice to find genetics that’ll stack up and have solid quality the entire way.” And it is exactly here that the combination of growing conditions and market demand plays out. “In our market, what people are looking for with a hand-trimmed bud, this is a very beautiful thing: there’s no flat side, everything is getting good light, good development. She’s just a beautiful strain.”

The characteristics of this genetic made it perfect for Hygge Farms. “You can see that the 24-30 inches of light penetration we are getting from the LEDs allows for really nice bud development far down the plant.”

As Brandon has described in the video by Grow Rebates, choosing the right strain requires a deep understanding of the complexities of cannabis growing and market demand. As it’s possible to see in the video, getting the right strain for a grower eventually translates into pure magic.
