Taking a page out of Skunk No. 1’s growth patterns, Island Sweet Skunk is known as a very high-yielding and relatively easy to grow strain, whether grown indoors or outdoors. Of course, growing outdoors will allow the plant to have much more room to move during its flowering stage, producing huge and heavy, sticky, mold-resistant buds with orange hairs and a sweet/sour citrus aroma. Be sure to take into account the size and weight of the buds that this plant will produce, as you will want to prop up or support the branches while flowering is occurring so that you don’t run the risk of broken stalks. In order to promote stronger, thicker stalks and stems, add a silica supplement.
