For the home grower, Banana Kush isn’t what you’d call the easiest strain to succeed with. It’s not the hardest, but it’s nonetheless pretty demanding when it comes to trimming, feeding, lighting and humidity. It’s also a comparatively low-yielding strain, though has a short flowering time of about 8 weeks.

If you’re up for the challenge though, it’s well worth the effort. Banana Kush plants are medium in size and produce bright green elongated buds, with gorgeous red hairs and plenty of glistening crystals. It’s also a THC-heavy strain, with concentrations usually coming in at around the 20% mark.
