Tangerine Dream Genetics

The last of which is what gives it that fruity odour and flavour. This strain is one of the most sought after hybrid strains on the seed market.

Growth Cycle for Tangerine Dream
Tangerine Dream is said to be one of the more difficult strains to grow according to many cannabis cultivators. However, if you can get this one right, the results are better than even your wildest dreams. This plant grows dewy flowers, covered in sticky white trichomes. After a medium flower time of 8-10 weeks, you will be treated to large dense buds with little tufts of orange hair. These plants are perfect for indoor and outdoor growth and their short plants rarely grow over 1 meter. This makes them really effective if you are trying to keep a low profile. Tangerine Dream does like a warmer, humid climate when outdoors. Many cannabis experts believe curing time is essential for this strain in order to unlock that characteristic taste.
