Burce Banner Plants & Preferred Climate
Bruce Banner, earned its name due to its huge yields and high potency. They are also very hearty plants that will grow well in both indoor as well as outdoor settings. If growing outdoors, keep in mind, this strain has a strong scent. If you do not want everyone to recognize what you are growing, plan accordingly.
A lot of growers of Bruce Banner use the Screen of Green (scrogging) technique to help distribute light when growing indoors. This strain can perform well to stress training such as these, often producing even higher yields.
Flowering & Yield
For indoor grows, Bruce Banner will begin flowering around 8 to 9 weeks. Under the right circumstances, you can reach yields towards 14 ounces per square meter with this plant. The plants tend to be around 4.5 feet tall in an indoor grow setting.
Outdoor grows will lead to gigantic plants. In some cases, you can reach yields as high as 17 ounces per plant when you’re growing outdoors but be warned: those hulking plants will get almost up to 10 feet in height. Outdoor grows should be harvested in early October. While they aren’t the toughest strain to grow, Bruce Banner plants is best left to those with some experience growing.

One taste of Bruce Banner and you’re feeling euphoric, followed by energetic joy that eases into a relaxing sense of creativity and well-being.

Bruce Banner is an intense strain, so remember, less is more. You can never get too much happiness, but you can get too much dry mouth and dry eyes. Keep a glass of water nearby when you smoke this strain.
There’s also the chance that you may experience headaches, anxiety, or paranoia, but this is more likely to occur if you overdo it. Remember, Bruce Banner can have a whopping THC level of as much as 29%, so it’s not messing around.
Bruce Banner Taste & Smell
Bruce Banner is not only strong when it comes to potency and effects, but it also packs a powerful smell. Its odor is incredibly strong, even well before harvest time, so plan for this when you grow it.
The scent is a combination of fruits and diesel. Any true fan of this strain would be able to recognize it instantly by its smell alone.
The taste is similar but allows the taste buds to distinguish between flavors a bit more than the scent does. This is due to the fact the taste is simply not as strong as the smell – which is a good thing, or else no one would enjoy smoking it. There is still a bit of diesel in the flavor, but there’s also a strawberry sweetness, as well as a flowery flavor.
