Garlic Cookies strain flowering time

GMO cookies are characterized with a flowering time of about 10 weeks.
As compared to most indicas, the flowering period for garlic cookies can generally extend further. This makes them look more like a sativa. 

It is best to harvest GMO cookies when the trichomes are milky white in color. Before that their color is more clear, representing immature trichomes. When they become more amber, the trichomes move towards the maturity stage. However, this also lowers (although slightly) the THC content of the strain.

Concerning their average yields, it ranges from about 14 to 18 ounces per square meter. That is immense! The plant growth is also thick. 

If they are grown indoors, they generally reach up to a medium height, in addition, they have dense buds and are resin-filled. As opposed to this, when they are grown outdoors, they require great warmth and sun. The best time to expect a good harvest comes in mid-October.

It is an ‘always on demand’ kush for its great properties (especially flavor and aroma) that make the growers highly inclined towards ensuring the best of the factors for its easy growth. 

What is best advised: 

As is targeted by most expert growers of garlic cookies strain, the perfect combination of milky white and amber trichomes as mentioned above is sought after. This represents good body-high and THC.
