Growing Gold Leaf Seeds
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.
ILGM’s Gold Leaf Strain is a great option for beginners looking to do an easy outdoor summer grow. By growing outdoors you can produce plants well over 7 feet tall from marijuana seeds that start to sprout almost immediately.
The strain also features a steady growth rate- a key feature that helps plants produce very high yields. If you are looking to grow indoors you can still get great results. It does require a little extra work-but the reward makes it worth it. To ensure good growth you’ll need to manage the plant with proper cropping and pruning.

Indoor grows produce a flowering period between 54-63 days. On average an indoor crop will produce between 15-23 ounces of marijuana for every square meter.
An Interesting Detail Why Our Gold Leaf Strain Grows So Tall
The Gold Leaf Strain is an indica-dominant strain (as mentioned above), but interestingly enough, it has a sativa heritage. This heritage is the secret to why this plant grows so big. This height is what drives the swollen, long colas, to produce the densely golden-yellow haired buds from which it gets its name.
Gold Leaf Strain Origin
When Robert Bergman created the Gold Leaf Strain, he combined multiple plants to produce a refined, sativa style height plant with indica traits users love.
To do that he struck a genetic balance of 40% sativa genes with 60% indica genetics producing that perfectly balanced blend of euphoria, creativity, and mood-boosting magic that keeps customers coming back and THC levels up to 21%!
