Zkittlez Auto is ready to harvest 8-10 weeks from germination. Every time I grow this strain the smell and bud effects are excellent
Two weeks is considered the minimum time to cure your buds, but I personally cure all my buds for a month or even a bit longer because the buds continue to improve for several more weeks.
Total post-harvest time needed: 2.5 weeks – 1.5+ months
The Average Indoor Cannabis Grow Takes 3-5 Months
Here’s the breakdown…
Time Needed to Grow Weed, From Seedling to Harvest
Short (6-8 weeks)
Germinate your seeds: 1 – 7 days
Seedlings can sprout in as little as a day, but by 3-5 days, they should be good to go. If you have access to clones, you get to skip this wait.
These vegetating plants are about 4 weeks old from germination
Before You Start Growing Weed
Drying: 4 – 10 days
Good marijuana buds can be dried in as little as 4 days, but ideally, drying should be a slow process taking up to a week or more. Making sure your plants have been thoroughly dried (but not over-dried) will lower chances of mold during the curing process.
Total growing time needed: 3-5 months on average
