Because it descended from landrace strains that have a reputation for becoming tall, Blueberry is the same. The feminized and regular seeds can grow to a maximum height of 225 cm. It also tends to be bushy and stout. This structure could affect the amount of light reaching the lower nodes. In addition, it increases the risk of excess moisture accumulation, inviting powdery mildew. Consequently, growers have to regularly prune and trim the non-essential foliage to tame its shagginess.
This strain responds well to a Screen of Green (SCROG) setup indoors and produces a yield of at least 500 grams per square meter after 9 weeks of flowering. This growing method helps curb the plants’ height and ensures that all the bud sites receive ample light. As for the growing medium, either soil or hydroponics is suitable, but note that the pH level should be 4.5 to 5.5 for efficient nutrient absorption. And since these are photoperiod plants, the light cycle should be 18/6 during the vegetative period and 12/12 for the flowering phase.
Should you choose to raise Blueberry outdoors, you won’t encounter any major problems as it prefers the atmosphere outside. In an open-air location with plenty of sunlight and light breezes, one plant can generate a tremendous 700 grams of delectable purple nugs. The best time to harvest would be mid-October when the resin becomes very sticky, and the curly pistils turn amber.
Take note that regular seeds have a 50/50 chance of sprouting male and female plants. To get the expected yield of smokable bud, germinate twice as many as you think you’ll need.
