Blue Cookies is only available in feminized seed form for now. While the option is limited, feminized Blue Cookies is an easy and rewarding plant to cultivate. Plus, feminized seeds obtained from reputable sellers and seedbanks ensure you won’t have to fuss about males and accidental pollination, allowing for a more straightforward grow journey that won’t compromise the output.
Blue Cookies’ Indica genetics gives it the sturdiness to endure harsh weather and usual gardening mistakes, making it an excellent option for beginners. In addition, the cannabis boasts ample resilience against common diseases and a moderate height—around 3 ft indoors and up to 5 ft outdoors—most home-growers will find manageable.
Having an Indica-leaning structure is undoubtedly advantageous, but it almost always means extensive bushing out. The risk of molds and mildew runs high in grow spaces, especially indoors, where air circulation is insufficient. Light penetration to lower portions of the plant may also be limited without human intervention. To resolve these concerns, make sure to trim away unnecessary branches and leaves. If you are cultivating in a controlled environment, having oscillating and exhaust fans will ensure proper air movement, while a reflective wall covering will maximize light exposure.
As for the growing medium, many Blue Cookies growers report achieving vigorous growth and better harvests in hydroponics. A hydro setup also makes nutrient management easier. On the other hand, growing in nutrient-rich soil tends to produce more fragrant and flavorful crops, which is the ultimate desire of terp hunters and concentrate makers.
As with most cannabis strains, Blue Cookies thrives in warm and sunny conditions, with the steady wind strengthening its branches and stem and blowing away the possibilities of pathogenic attacks. If you’re located somewhere with such a climate, simply look for a spot that receives plenty of sunlight and you can already start growing this marijuana plant outside by April or later as long as the harvest is ripe for collection by early October. Just have a canopy ready or grow in a pot so you can move your weed under a stable roof or cover in case it rains. For each Blue Cookies you raise in an ideal outdoor setting, you stand to earn between 500 and 600 grams.
Indoors, the strain flowers for 9 weeks, potentially sharing around 350 to 500 grams of delicious buds per square meter. To achieve such yield size, maintain temperatures between 70 and 74℉ and Relative Humidity levels below 50%. If you’re planning on growing multiple Blue Cookies, you can maximize your plants’ bud production through the Sea of Green (SOG) technique. It requires a shorter vegetative growth, resulting in smaller plants, early flowering, and, therefore, earlier harvest.
