Marijuana growers often wonder what makes the difference in whether or not they’re able to grow monster plants that produce many ounces or even pounds per plant.
Marijuana genetics make an important difference in yield and THC percentages…the strains we recommend in this article have genetics that make them more likely to grow big and produce larger buds and more THC than other strains.
But we also realize that how and where you grow marijuana makes as much difference as the strains of marijuana you grow.
In general, unless you have a very large grow room with high ceilings and lots of HID lights, you won’t get as many grams per plant indoors than you would if you’re growing outdoors.
Similarly, if you use professionalized hydroponics nutrients and supplements such as pH Perfect hydroponics base nutrients, Big Bud, Bud Factor X rather than Miracle-Gro or other schwag fertilizers, you’ll see healthier plants and bigger yields.
It also helps if you properly top and trim your marijuana plants early so they develop multiple main stems instead of the Christmas tree shape that most marijuana plants develop into if they’re untrimmed.
Another way to get monster cannabis plants is to provide more room for their roots, and to feed the root zone beneficial microbes such as Voodoo Juice (along with a booster like Roots Excelurator) so roots get bigger and can support more top growth.
Now here are some marijuana strains that have the genetic tendency to go big and produce large plants and harvests…
PLUSHBERRY: From the legendary TGA Subcool seed company, this one has beautiful coloration and two main phenotypes with the Indica-dominant phenotype producing massive yields indoors or outdoors.
Check the many YouTube and other online reports from satisfied marijuana growers who love Plushberry.
TGA Subcool have told us recently that high demand for their seeds is creating shortages of some key strains.
If you’re unable to get Plushberry, go for TGA Subcool Agent Orange, another plant legendary for growing large and producing heavy, thick, premium buds.
Subcool also says check out his Jesus OG Kush. “Expect harvests so big they’ll bury you in sticky goodness.”
JACK HERER: Originally created by Sensi Seeds, but now better sourced as a clone or from USA breeders rather than from Sensi Seeds, Jack Herer marijuana has a proud heritage including some of the best old school genetics from the 1960s and 70s.
When you feed it Bud Candy, Big Bud, and Overdrive in a properly lit indoor garden with C02, or growing outdoors in moderately-warm and dry climates, you get super-large yields, and the high is heavenly.
Jack Herer carries some Haze and other Sativa genetics, so be prepared to top and train vigorously, or to see it go tall if untopped and especially outdoors.
Jack Herer marijuana has a powerful Haze scent while growing, and especially when you properly dry and cure your Herer buds.
CINDERELLA 99: This is a legendary heavy yielder with a short (50-63 day) bloom phase, which makes it nice for outdoor growers who want their buds ready for harvest before autumn rains come in.
This cannabis strain contains Jack Herer influences, but does not stone you like Jack Herer. It has its own unique high.
PINEAPPLE EXPRESS: Probably even better than the marijuana strain you saw in the Seth Rogen and James Franco movie version, this one was at first a mutt knock-off that people bred so they could capitalize on the movie’s popularity.
Today, Pineapple Express is one of the most fun marijuana strains. It has a 55-65 day flowering time and benefits from Bud Candy and B-52 supplements during bloom.
WHITE WIDOW: Used to be that almost every marijuana grower was growing or had grown this famous strain.
In the last couple of years you see less White Widow, but it’s a mistake to forget this heavy-yielding, easy to grow, crystally marijuana strain.
You can now procure new-style White Widow seeds and clones. Breeders adjusted the amount of Indica cannabis genetics, adding a hint more Sativa so the high is more uplifiting than before.
This marijuana is also known for its major amount of resin glands, so it’s often grown for hashish production.
Please remember as we said earlier, genetics alone aren’t the sole determiner of whether you’ll grow monster marijuana plants or harvest monster yields.
Also note that many of the strains that produce the largest yields are Indica-dominant, which means a different kind of high than strains that are pure Sativa or even a Sativa-dominant hybrid.
When you want the largest marijuana plants with the biggest yields, the five plus strains we just gave you are going to yield huge stacks of sticky buds as long as you’re paying attention to growing conditions and feeding them good food, as any caring grower should
