Strain overview: Blueberry is a West Coast staple created by breeder DJ Short, who crossed a variety of landrace strains including Thai, Purple Thai, and Afghani. A distinct and alluring blueberry aroma has given this strain quite a reputation, and growers worldwide have coveted the genetics for their own breeding projects. Its dreamy indica effects pair perfectly with relaxing activities or as a nightcap before bed.
Grow techniques: Blueberry really shines outdoors. Start this strain early in your greenhouse and be ready to plant after last frost. Amend your soil with quality nutrients and watch your Blueberry plants take off. Top your plants to help create a bush shape which will increase the yields. Stay on top of pruning the inside of the plants to prevent powdery mildew from taking over.
Climate: Mild climates between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberry can handle colder nighttime temperatures without it affecting the yield significantly.
Strain overview: Blueberry Kush is an Oregon-bred cross between two iconic strains, Blueberry and OG Kush. This indica-dominant variety produces beautiful, dense colas that pack a powerful and sedating high. It inherits a sweet berry smell subdued by earthy herbal notes.
Grow techniques: A perfect strain for an indoor hydroponic setup, Blueberry Kush grows short, stocky plants that maximize a grow space. High yields result from the right nutrients and climate. Clear out any vegetation that isn’t in the canopy to promote airflow and direct the growth upward.
Climate: Blueberry Kush will take off in a climate-controlled environment. Moisture will cause the buds to mold so keep humidity below 40% when flowering. This strain prefers a temperature between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Through careful, regular pruning and cultivation, you can sculpt Blueberry into a bush shape. If you do it correctly, your plants may produce far more bud than they would normally. This high yield is often surprising for first-time growers. However, getting such a high return is dependent on several factors, aside from pruning. You also need to feed this strain properly.
This greenish-blue product contains phosphorus, potassium, silica, iron, and a horde of trace minerals. It is best to add it to top-dressing and the weed’s root zone at the beginning of the growing season. This is because it takes a while to become bioavailable. It offers nutrients to help your plant’s immune systems and metabolic functions.
Tip #4: Increasing Blueberry’s Yield
The minimum recommendation is 65 degrees. However, it could briefly withstand temperatures as low as 45 degrees Fahrenheit without it affecting the bud yield significantly.
The difficulty in ensuring you get a yield is well worth it, however. Blueberry is a strain with history, flavor and massive potential for making great bud. Let’s take a look at eight tips to make sure you grow Blueberry the right way.
Tip #7: Blueberry Flowering Time
Indoors, it can provide up to 18 ounces of bud per square meter planted. Outdoors, you could benefit from a yield of up to 25 ounces per plant.
