some snacks around as using one’s brainpower can be quite hunger-inducing.

Protecting it from
the snow, for instance, will keep the plant from dying overnight. In cases of
extreme weather, such as heavy rains, moving the plant indoors is necessary as
it can break its branches into two. Having a trellis will also prevent bugs
from ravaging Alien Technology.
Pruning is essential, especially when growing the plant indoors. It is extremely dense and will sometimes harbor moisture in between its crevices. Lack of proper aeration can lead to humidity-related problems like mold, mildew, and bud or root rot. If left unattended, it will stunt the plant’s growth and reduce the quality of the yield.
