1. Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue thrives in Georgia's long growing season, achieving full potential with abundant resinous buds. Despite compact size, it resists mold well, aided by natural defenses important for the humidity.

Fast 8-9 week flowering enables balcony and patio harvests. Indoors, plants reach 3-5 feet tall, yielding 8-16 ounces per square meter for novices and up to 21 ounces for experts.

Outdoors, with training specially SCROG, Gorilla Glue can hit 6 feet tall and 1.5 pounds per plant.

2. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel thrives in Georgia's warmth but requires humidity monitoring to prevent mold. A versatile strain suitable indoors or out given ample height, as it can reach 10 feet.

The sunny climate pairs well with its light-loving nature. Indoors, use training for height control and target October harvests, yielding around 20 ounces per plant.

Outdoors, expect even larger yields, especially in southern parts, but stake plants to support the tall stature.

3. OG Kush

Indoors, hydroponics maximizes yield and potency. Ensure adequate height for its large stature, reaching over 6 feet outside and up to 5 feet inside.

4. Jack Herer

Jack Herer, thanks to its balanced genetics, thrives in both outdoor and indoor environments. Outdoors, it prefers warm, dry conditions but also adapts well to greenhouses.

Indoors, despite its compact size, requires training and pruning due to its Sativa heritage. Supporting its branches is essential to prevent breakage from heavy buds.

This strain is also resistant to mold, making it flexible even with different humidity levels.

5. Chemdawg

The warm, long growing seasons favor Sativa-dominant strains like Chemdawg, though its susceptibility to mold and mildew in high humidity requires vigilant care.

Addressing these issues promptly ensures healthy plants and potentially large yields, with over 20 oz per plant possible in controlled environments like greenhouses.

Chemdawg's Christmas tree shape and numerous side branches make it ideal for growers interested in employing advanced cultivation techniques such as SOG, SCROG, or LST, offering rewarding outcomes.

6. Bruce Banner

Bruce Banner, a challenging strain, excels in conditions akin to Georgia, making it suitable for committed cultivators. It adapts well to techniques such as SCROG or SOG due to its flexible growth pattern.

Important to note, it enters the flowering stage quickly, so starting this phase earlier is advisable. When grown outdoors in the south, it can yield approximately 18 oz per plant.

7. Gelato

Gelato, a slightly Indica-dominant hybrid, is known for its durability and disease resistance, making it ideal for beginners due to its low maintenance and well-spaced branches.

Planting in May leads to a late August harvest of dense, trichome-rich buds with vibrant orange hairs and a mix of purple and green hues.

Outdoors, Gelato plants can grow up to 5-6 feet tall, and with proper care and favorable conditions, they can yield over 20 ounces per plant.

Its robust mold resistance and forgiveness of beginner errors make it suitable for first-time growers. While it can be grown indoors, outdoor growing leverages Georgia's natural climate for slightly larger yields.
