Golden Goat Growing
The plants grow abnormally tall in nature, making it ideal to grow outside. However, with proper height room, the plant can flourish indoors as well. It’s not a bad choice for new growers due to the fact that this plant is resistant to mildew, molds, pests, and parasites. Having a plant be so durable means it is low maintenance and is desirable for any grower.
A dry, warm climate is best for the crops to fully grow and flourish. Humidity levels that mimic Southern California are ideal. Growers can expect a yield time of 9-11 weeks, which means it has a slightly longer harvest.
Since the crop is so dank, proper ventilation is required or your whole building will know what you’re growing behind closed doors. Even those who own a home will want ventilation, or the overall smell will quickly insert itself into every room.
