Strawberry Cough’s ongoing popularity has been fuelled by experiences of growers and smokers around the world. This powerful hybrid strain has a particularly loyal fanbase of repeat growers that simply adore the special high. Many growers are attracted by the legendary name and cult reputation of Strawberry Cough. The Dutch Passion team think that the taste and superb high are the main reasons that the strain has gained such global popularity. However, there is another reason why Strawberry Cough deserves its place as one of the most iconic sativa strains of all time and that is the ease of growth.
Most of those that grow Indicas or Indica-dominant hybrids do so for good reasons. The best ones are easy to grow and they can be quite unfussy even when grown slightly outside their normal conditions or nutrient range. Indicas or Indica-dominant hybrids grow well under a wide range of growing conditions and may even tolerate unstable conditions. Strawberry Cough may be a sativa dominant hybrid, but she has a notable robustness similar to indica dominant hybrids. Strawberry Cough grows relatively quickly like a hybrid, although without a great deal of stretch. The leaves show some hybrid traits as well. However in flowering the leaves become thinner and longer, showing more of the Sativa characteristics.
The buds show a mix of Sativa and Indica genes. The buds are cone shaped, the blooms are long and compact making her easy to trim. Although the high is very Sativa-like, the buds are less fluffy and prone to fox-tailing than you might expect. There are definitely some phenotypes that are prone to fox-tailing but even these buds can be quite dense and compact.
