Tips for Growing Cherry Blaster
How long does it take Cherry Blaster feminized fast version from seed to harvest?
The short answer: Cherry Blaster fast version mature from seed to harvest in about 3 to 8 months (13 to 29 weeks), depending on several factors like the grow medium used, etc.
Cherry Blaster feminized fast version seeds go through four stages before producing the coveted trichome-laden buds.
Germination: 1-2 weeks
Seedling: 2–3 weeks
Vegetative: 3–16 weeks
Flowering: 7-8 weeks
The germination stage typically lasts for a week or two, depending on the selected method. Each seed sprouts at its own pace, so while some may take a day, others may only develop roots in about a week or two.
After the seeds germinate, they enter the seedling stage, which lasts for 2–3 weeks. The plant will only transition to the next stage after developing leaves with the right number of blades, which is typically 7.
Then, the plant enters the vegetative stage. The timeframe of this stage is quite tricky because growers can choose to extend this period to improve the yield. It’s all up to you, but growers can keep the crops in the vegetative phase for 3–16 weeks.
Finally, it enters the flowering stage. In the case of these fast version Cherry Blaster seeds, this phase lasts for only 7 to 8 weeks.
What is the ideal indoor growing environment for Cherry Blaster plants?
To ensure prolific growth of your Cherry Blaster plants, make sure to keep the growing environment within the following ideal ranges:
pH level: 5.8 – 6.2
Temperature: 21 to 26 °C (70 to 80 °F) during the day (lights on) and 18 to 21 °C (65 to 70 °F) at night (lights off)
Climate (for outdoor gardens): Warm, temperate, Mediterranean-like climate.
Relative humidity: When sprouting the seeds, keep humidity levels around 80%. Once it grow roots, drop the RH to around 75%. Then, once it enters the flowering stage, maintain it between 50 to 60%.
Light cycle length:
- Vegetative phase: 18 hours lights on, 6 hours lights off
- Flowering phase: 12 hours lights on, 12 hours lights off
Carbon dioxide levels: 900-1600 parts per million (ppm) during lights on, none added during lights off
Soil or Hydroponics? Which is the best grow medium for Cherry Blaster plants?
If you’re just starting your cannabis cultivation journey, we recommend starting your garden using nutrient-rich soil as the medium. Not only is it more convenient and relatively easier to maintain, but it also enriches the terpene profile of the buds—resulting in an even more aromatic and flavorful nugs. We suggest using high-quality soil that has loam features. When your crops reach the vegetative stage, use top-quality nutrients for moderate supplementation.
On the other hand, seasoned growers are encouraged to opt for hydroponics for faster and even more explosive growth. Since the nutrients are directly taken up by the roots suspended in water, plants grown in the hydroponics setup grow 20% faster, thereby resulting in even shorter waiting times and overall higher yields. Just make sure to maintain ideal pH levels and keep an eye out for pathogens that may contaminate the water in your system.
