With that said, growers may also invest in life-support equipment that will make adjusting important factors like temperature and humidity easier. For instance, one could place small fans to reduce heat that could dehydrate the plant. A proficient ventilation system is also important in preventing the development of humidity-related problems like mold and mildew.

Lighting is essential when cultivating Martian Candy. Indoors, dedicated tents or small growing needs may require higher intensity lights. This is because the plant requires more light energy to produce buds during the flowering period. Outdoor growers, on the other hand, need not worry as the sun provides all the light needs that the plant requires.

The Indica-leaning plant performs best in the Sea of Green setup. It maximizes its short structure by sowing at least four seeds in a single square meter. The non-invasive method also gently coaxes the main colas toward the light and shortens the vegetative phase without affecting yields.
