Strawberry Banana S1 seeds: Self-made 420 legends

The “S1” symbol stands for “selfing” or “selfed.” It refers to the process of reversing a female cannabis plant for self-pollination. Breeders turn a female mother plant into a male by stressing it. They then pollinate the plant with its own pollen to preserve its original genes.
This unique genetic engineering creates crop stability. The seeds offer predictable growth thanks to genetic uniformity with the mother plant. Expect similar flavors, aromas, and effects, as well as more resilient growth.
Strawberry Banana is an indica-dominant strain with 70% indica and 30% sativa genes. DNA Genetics created it by crossing Bubble Gum and Banana Kush. This parent strain blends the coveted potency of Kush varieties and the sweet aroma of candy.
The Strawberry Banana S1 strain is famous for its mouth-watering buds. It inherits indica-dominance from its parents and boasts heavy resin and THC production.

Top cultivation tips to maximize yield and potency
Strawberry Banana S1 seeds are beginner-friendly thanks to their sturdiness. They produce cannabis crops resistant to common pests, molds, and diseases. The plants thrive indoors and outdoors and respond well to various methods.
This weed strain prefers a warm, sunny, Mediterranean-like climate. Outdoor cultivation is also possible in cooler regions. Start your crops indoors or in a greenhouse to preserve their fragile strength.
Strawberry Banana S1 produces thick branches in vegging and grows up to six feet tall. Ensure regular pruning of the larger leaves to promote uniform light distribution. Grow in organic soil or hydroponics if your indoor space allows it.
Ensure the soil is well-draining to prevent water-logging. It should also be rich in nutrients like nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. Watch the pH of your growing medium closely to maximize mineral uptake by the roots.
Aim for a relative humidity of 40–50% and temperatures of 70–80°F to support optimal growth. Colder indoor temperatures may turn the leaves purple if aesthetics are your thing. Consider topping and low-stress training (LST) to manage indoor height and maximize space.
Give your plants ample light to maximize photosynthesis. This photoperiod weed strain works best with an 18/6 illumination schedule. Adjust this cycle accordingly throughout different growth phases to prevent light stress. Use fluorescent or high-intensity lamps for optimal intensity.
Adding the Sea of Green (SOG) or Screen of Green (ScrOG) techniques may boost your yields. Strawberry Banana S1 typically flowers in 9–10 weeks. Proper feeding and optimized watering can enhance bud quality significantly.
The average indoor yield is 16–19 oz./m2. Proper outdoor management produces an impressive harvest of 21–25 oz./plant. The ideal harvest time outdoors is early to mid-October. Indoor timing is up to you.
Cure your Strawberry Banana S1 buds post-harvest to preserve their top resin quality. Hang them upside down for about a week with 50% humidity and a temperature of 70°F.
