 Rough Rider Indica Strain Grow Info

 Rough Rider Indica is a somewhat difficult marijuana strain to cultivate. One benefit is that it is naturally resistant to disease. Rough Rider Indica may be cultivated indoors or outside, in soil or hydroponically. In an environment with plenty of sunshine, Tangerining Dream thrives and benefits from a warm, dry condition. The temperature range should be between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit when cultivated outside.

 Rough Rider Indica’s indoor flowering period is between 8-10 weeks. When grown outdoors, Rough Rider Indica can yield approximately 16 ounces of flower per square meter. Indoor yields average slightly higher, at roughly 18 ounces per square meter.

 Rough Rider Indica thrives when grown hydroponically — particularly when combined with the Sea of Green (SOG) method. Prune these plants heavily during the vegetative stage to ensure good air circulation and light exposure.

Supplementing the plant with a variety of macronutrients will help ensure good health and stronger resistance to pathogens. Silica is known to help form stronger cell walls. It can help produce a healthier plant with thicker branches and leaves less penetrable to microbial spores (such as powdery mildew).

Drying and Curing

Paying attention to drying and curing the buds will help to enhance the terpene profile and maintain THC content. You can hang the buds upside down by the stem, or you can lay them on drying racks for five to ten days.

It is essential during the drying process to keep the buds in a dark room away from direct sunlight. Keep the temperature around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity around 50%.

Placing a small fan in the room can help with air circulation, but make sure the buds aren’t getting excessively dried out. Ensuring properly dried bud will significantly prevent mold formation.

 Rough Rider Indica buds should be crisp on the outside. A useful technique to indicate moisture content is to employ the “snap test” on the plant’s smaller branches. They should snap rather than fold when you bend them.

When the buds are completely dry, seal them in an airtight container (such as a wide-mouthed mason jar). Store the jars in a cool, dry place. During the first week, open the jars (known as burping) at least three times a day for around 5-10 minutes. Doing so will allow excess moisture and gasses in the jars to escape.

After the first week, you should only open the jars a few times per week for 5-10 minutes. Curing for two to three weeks is usually long enough to produce amazing results. However, for those with more patience, curing for 4-6 weeks can produce even better results. Bear in mind, curing times will vary based on bud size, environmental factors, and moisture content.

The highest recorded THC level in a Rough Rider Indica sample was approximately 25%.
