California Haze marijuana, the tropical blend with fruity flavors
The California Haze is a cannabis plant (and CBD marijuana) of American origins, but its maximum diffusion occurred in the Netherlands.
One of the indoor growing areas in Italy is located in the Upper Piedmont in a specially designed and highly controlled environment.
This variety of marijuana, despite being among the most luxuriant and productive, it is generally neglected by growers due to the long waiting times for its harvest and for its delicacy that requires important care.
California Haze marijuana indoor and outdoor cultivation
The California Haze is a tall plant with few side branches that require a lot of space to grow freely: from this follows the need of large spaces for a substantial cultivation.
The central top is very large, and is surrounded by smaller florets that are always compact and thick on the side branches.
The ideal temperature for its best flowering is the warm one, in fact for the outdoor cultivations the choice is a cultivation in a rather sunny area.
For the indoor cultivation the need of lamps with high heat production and adequate light is essential for a good plant development, they should in fact be subjected to regular light cycles to speed up growth.
The plant development occurs in different phases.
In the first phase it shows its Indica part more clearly: in fact it has large leaves and a dark green color.
As time passes and the plant grows, the leaves begin to be more sparse and the California begins to resemble the Sativa type.
The leaves in fact takes on the typical silver color.
Subsequently it will then pass a phase in which the foliage will turn on a lighter color, the shades will be those of the peach due to the presence of the numerous crystals of THC, to finally become a reddish color once the top has reached the maturation.
To get the best California Haze flowers, the cultivation is done without any use of pesticides, fertilizers or composts of any kind; it can therefore be said that its biological cultivation is non-GMO.
Growth and flowering are guaranteed only by water irrigation and right exposure to the light. We try to recreate in the building where we cultivate the plants its natural habitat where it is grown.
California Haze is a marijuana plant that can reach 210 cm in outdoor cultivation, while the plant that is naturally indoors grown, it reaches lower heights, growing up to about 140 cm.
To overcome this problem, the right water and light control system, specially designed and sized for indoor cultivation, determines a greater plant height.

Generally the harvest period falls in October and can extend up to November; the time frame is actually a bit long compared to other varieties.
However, California is one of the most productive marijuana varieties.
For indoor crops, the production can reach between 600 and 650g / sqm (unlike outdoor cultivation which produces between 650 and 700g per plant).
It is a rather delicate plant, easily attacked by insects and subject to illness if not treated properly.
The collection and cleaning of the flowers does not take place mechanically, but each plant is worked meticulously by hand.
