Tajikistan, nestled between Kyrgistan, Uzbekistan, China and Afghanistan is a natural paradise, a country of great natural beauty and impressive geography. The geography of Tajikistan is dominated by mountains, as it is home to a significant part of the Pamir mountain range, often called “the roof of the world.” These mountains, with peaks reaching altitudes of more than 7,000 meters, define the Tajik landscape and contribute to its unique climate.
Tajikistan’s climate varies depending on altitude. In the lower regions, such as the valleys of the Amu Daria River and the Sir Daria River, the climate is subtropical and experiences warm summers and mild winters. However, as you go higher up, the climate becomes alpine, with cold winters and cool summers. The high Pamir Mountains are covered in snow for much of the year, creating a challenging but beautiful environment.
Tajikistan’s geography also includes stunning rivers and lakes, such as Karakul and Iskanderkul, which are set amid spectacular mountain landscapes. Tajikistan’s high altitude and mountainous geography make the country a unique and attractive place for nature lovers and adventurers seeking alpine experiences and stunning landscapes.

In terms of nutritional needs of the plants, this strain falls within the range of normal demands, making it suitable for both beginners and more advanced growers. It is important to provide a proper balance of nutrients to ensure a healthy growth and optimal flower production. As for watering needs the Tajiki plants require medium watering, no large amounts are needed and preferably in the morning before the sun gets hot.
Regarding the outdoor flowering cycle, it is important to highlight that Shirin Gol usually finishes its flowering between the end of September and the beginning of October, depending on the phenotype and, of course, the weather conditions. This makes it an excellent choice for growers in regions with temperate climates and shorter growing seasons, as it allows harvesting before the weather turns unfavourable. If you grow them indoors expect them to finish flowering really fast, that is 45-50 days.
