Grow Information

The Pineapple Kush strain is moderately easy to grow. Giving beginners fairly large yields for their efforts.

The strain does do best indoors, where it can receive a consistent temperature between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As well as a proper setup. This plant can become very heavy, which makes using a sea of green (SOG) setup very useful. Still, the plant will need to be tightly pruned to direct growth to the top colas. The heaviness of the plant will become even more so, as the buds start to mature and become even heavier. During this phase of growth, it’s recommended that the plant be trellised to provide it with added support.

Pineapple Kush is a strain that loves its humidity and can handle high levels of it without the worry of mould. Providing a bit more humidity may make this plant even heartier as it flourishes and help increase yields. This may come as a surprise to growers that have experience with other Kush plants. Typically, they do not hold up to humidity as well as Pineapple Kush.

Being a Kush, these plants will also love their nutrients. So regular to heavy feeding is a must. Flowering usually starts in about eight weeks. Once the plants have moved into their flowering stage, growers will find the best results by adding nutrients rich in phosphorus to the soil. When grown hydroponically, growers will find the results just as good. But must still provide the proper nutrients at the right times.


Of all the Kush strains, Pineapple Kush may be the one that growers are still learning a lot about.

With great potency, yield and robustness, it’s no surprise that Pineapple Kush is one of the most popular strains on the cannabis market today.
