Acapulco Gold Autoflower Seeds information

A beautiful sativa landrace, Acapulco Gold famous for its vibrant golden hues and big green buds originated in Acapulco, Mexico. It was highly in demand in the 60’s and 70’s which led it to become a strain synonymous with stoner culture after being featured in the Cheech and Chong film, Up In Smoke. Since then, Acapulco Gold has gone on to see a revival of its popularity as growers try to snap up any landrace genetics, they can get their hands on.

Growing Acapulco Gold Auto

She can reach up to 180cm (6 foot) tall making it a difficult to manage in small indoor grow tents. That being said this type of structure lends itself perfectly to LST where experienced growers will be able to use the height to their advantage and bend the plants branches to create a flat canopy effect.
