AK-47 is a potent strain. However, it does have a sensitivity to rotting and mold. Therefore, you must have good ventilation when growing AK 47 indoors to avoid high humidity, which could damage the plants. Temperatures should be cool but sunny, with a lot of fresh air. You should also choose a setting with plenty of vertical space to allow the plant to flourish and grow to its full potential.

Cultivating AK47 outside means harvesting during the end of October, its peak harvest time. Each one of these plants can produce about 14 ounces of usable Cannabis.
