Durban Poison is a strain that can thrive in an indoor grow if in the right climate. Expect a flowering time off around 9 weeks, which is normal especially for a sativa strain. You should be getting around 13 ounces per square meter if grown indoors. Many growers have reported you will get a much bigger yield and better quality buds if grown in a hydroponic set up rather then soil.


If grown outdoors your durban plant can reach up too 90″ in height, which is mainly as it has 100% sativa hidden inside her and also growing outdoors will always add a few inches or three. You should be harvesting an average of 16 ounces per plant. This should be ready to harvest around late September to early October. This strain does like the sun, but it needs to be very sunny and also your plants need a cooler environment to thrive.

It will do much better outside, maybe not as good quality as you would get if grown in hydro for example, as with a hydroponic set up you can have the option off controlling how much nutrients the plants are allowed. Quite a easy strain to grow, as it stays away from most molds and pests unless your temperatures and humidity are through the roof.
