If you are planning to grow this plant indoor, then keep in mind that you will need a ton of extra space. You will need bigger pots as the roots of these plants can grow as long as the plant itself. Make sure the temperature of the room is warm with minimal humidity. Best to put the pot near a window so it can get as much fresh air and sunlight if possible. You can also use a growing lamp to sustain the temperature during the night time.
If you are growing the plant outside, then you will need to prepare the soil before planting the seeds. Ice cream cake strains can be more demanding and high maintenance than other strains. As they grow tall and wide, plant the seeds in a large area, so there is plenty of room for the plants to grow both vertically and horizontally. If the temperature drops at night, you will need a lamp to maintain the warm temperature.
To prevent fungus, mold ad mildew from growing on the stalks and leaves, you will need to ensure enough airflow and proper ventilation to get rid of the excess moisture.
