Berry Ryder autoflowering seeds produce plants that have simple care requirements and a fast growth rate. These two features make this strain ideal for first-time cannabis cultivators and even veterans who want an easy-to-grow plant without sacrificing the quality of the yield. At the end of its short life, it generates dense, popcorn-shaped nugs comparable with a regular, non-auto Blueberry. It displays the same thick coating of frosty trichomes that are a sign of immense potency.
One of this variant’s biggest advantages is its small size since it can fit in any available space. You can stash it away in a closet or leave it out on the porch to blend in with the other houseplants. Its average height is around 60 cm (24 inches) in a contained environment – maybe a little taller if grown using hydroponics. In the open air, it can get as big as 100 cm (40 inches), which is still suitable for a covert setup.
The plant’s diminutive size is directly correlated to its brief life cycle. It only takes 60 to 65 days to grow from seed to maturity, so several crops a year is possible. Whether you raise it indoors or outdoors, you do not have to wait for months to gather the fruits of your labor. You could germinate seeds as often as you like for outdoor cultivation if you live in an area with a warm, balmy climate year-round.
For a perpetual harvest indoors, you can keep seedlings and flowering plants in the same space. Unlike photoperiod strains, autos do not have to be switched to the budding stage by changing the grow light schedule. You can keep the lamp on for 18, 20, or even 24 hours a day, and the plants decide on their own when to produce buds according to their internal clock.
Since Berry Ryder is like a miniature Indica, it has a compact and stout structure. Its thick foliage of broad, closely packed leaves has to be pruned from time to time. Trimming the excessive growth promotes better airflow to prevent moisture-related diseases. It also allows light to penetrate to the lower bud sites so that they can develop properly.
Don’t be alarmed if the plant begins to turn purple or bluish. Like the classic Blueberry, it has anthocyanins (pigments) that are triggered by cold nighttime temperatures. The beautiful color will not affect the blooms’ potency or taste, but they do add enormous bag appeal. If you are growing al fresco, you can expect a yield of 100 to 150 grams (3.5 to 5 ounces) of mauve-hued buds per plant. But if you pack together several plants indoors, you can get300 to 400 grams (11 to 14 ounces) per square meter.
