Basic / Breeders Info

New York Power Diesel is a mostly sativa variety from Nirvana and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±70 days ) and outdoors . Nirvanas New York Power Diesel is a THC dominant variety and is/was never available as feminized seeds.

Nirvanas New York Power Diesel Description

A sensational and radical new marijuana mix, NYPD (New York Power Diesel) is an F1 hybrid of our former Sativa Mexicana seeds and a specially stabilized Aurora Indica. The latter’s heavy, greasy narcotic buzz beautifully takes the edge off the crispness and speedy effect of the former. NYPD’s shockingly powerful terpenoids result in a marijuana with a lemony flavor and the diesel-like aroma that inspired its name. Its plants grow tall stems with a surprisingly tight bud structure. The amount of dry marijuana these seeds produce is not overwhelming, but definitely still worthwhile!

Plant Height Tall
Average Yield 400 – 500 g/m² in SOG
Flowering Period 9 – 11 weeks
Seeds per pack 10
THC High
CBD Medium
Effect+ Euphoric Uplifted Tingly
Flavor+ Earthy Citrus Diesel
Medical+ Stress Pain Cramps

About this Hybrid Strain

Sweet Tea is a popular style of tea, seen in the United States, where sugar is added to tea, and is usually served cold. Lemon is most commonly added, although peach and raspberry are often used too.

Originally bred by the late great legendary breeder “Subcool” (David Bowman), Sweet Tea was created by first crossing California Orange with Alcatraz OG. Females of this were then crossed with “The Dude,” a highly regarded Space Queen male. The result is a potent and tasty sativa-dominant masterpiece to add to “The Dank” collection. Our particular batch of Sweet Tea came from Cookies, with an impressive 26% THC level!

The Sweet Tea buds are made up of dense and chunky forest and lime-green leaves, scattered with long and wavy orange-pistils. The buds are encased in fuzzy amber-trichomes, lending furry patches of yellow, that compliment the orange beautifully.

Breaking the Sweet Tea buds open releases a bold, cedar aroma, with hints of orange-citrus. Combusting this strain brings out the sugary, candy taste, reminiscent of sweet tea flavored candy.

By the time the first hit is released, users report an instantaneous effect, with the sugary aftertaste triggering colorful memories of sipping some ice-cold sweet tea on a hot summer day. Users say the stimulation of the mind and imagination offers them assistance in staying focused and productive. They report a blissful euphoria that helps to slash stress, and unload the weight of unnecessary worry. This remarkable effect on mood and energy is why some suggest Sweet Tea as a great daytime choice for those suffering from anxiety, chronic-pain, chronic fatigue, depression, PTSD, and ADHD. They describe the numbing body-buzz and enhanced mind-muscle connection aren’t sedating, and may make physical activities and exercise classes more bearable or enjoyable. This tasty and versatile hybrid could be enjoyed anytime, although most users preferred to use it early in the day.

The Sweet Tea flower can be found at dispensaries in the United States, under the Cookies banner. Seeds are also readily available as it is part of Subcool’s, “The Dank” family. Sweet Tea is a tall and lanky plant that will need plenty of space to grow, and is better suited for growing outdoors. It is an average yielder, with about an 8-week flowering period.

Very good strain to end the day with, a well-done piece of flower!

Smoking on some sweet tea from “Cookies”. Sugary buttery taste with the slightest hint of orange. Very nice. My batch is burning all white ash. Easy to smoke. The high doesn’t jolt you, instead It slowly folds over you like a blanket of thc and is a very zen like calm. It’s extremely pleasing. After smoking a joint of this nothing will bother you. It’s like laying out in the sun sippin on some sweat tea. ✌️ Smoke up

had this in RSO. complete relief when i had the cold with a post nasal drip. i used a decent sized drop on my tongue. 30 minutes later i could breath without a cough and no drip in the back of my throat. slept all night though as well. just a hint of thc to brighten my spirit. really great medication.

shortest sativa strain

The Five Shortest Autoflower Strains – A Fast Buds Guide

Bigger is not always better. A supersized Sativa may look great in photos, but what do you do when it starts to outgrow its tent? Get a bigger tent? Well, then how do you discreetly place that in your home? Nobody wants law enforcement banging their door down because their pot plant was too big to hide.

If you value stealthiness or have limited space, autoflowering cannabis seeds grow compact and shorter, and can still provide you with big yields and potent flowers. Instead of growing like trees, these strains grow like squat bushes packed with dense buds. Sometimes referred to as dwarf cannabis, modern autoflowers offer staggering yields and award-winning, high-THC buds within 10-weeks of planting. With that in mind, let’s kick off our list at number 5!

For each strain, we’ve included a link to a grow report/grow diary that illustrates one way (of many) to successfully grow each variety. Check out our grow tips.

5. Green Crack Auto 24-35 inches

Who wants to get hyped! No strain provides a rush like Green Crack (sometimes called Green Crush). The original version of this legendary strain comes in both Sativa-dominant and Indica-dominant varieties. Fast Buds’ Autoflowering version is an almost perfect 50/50 hybrid that gives the rush of a Sativa, while the Indica relaxation eliminates paranoia and nervousness.

Topping out at 35 inches, or 90 centimeters, The small bushy Green Crack still offers massive yields, as you can see from the picture above. Green Crack offers a smooth, balanced experience, and fits nicely in a closet or any kind of stealth grow box.

The shortest autoflowering strains for stealthy growers or those who have limited space.

Use LST to Grow a Short Sativa

Key Takeaway: You Can Use LST (Low Stress Training) to Force Any Marijuana Plant to Grow Into Any Shape You Want

LST allows you to train your marijuana plants to grow into basically any shape.

This gives you the power to force any strain to grow short, giving you the ability to grow a short Sativa or Haze, strains which normally grow too tall and stretchy to get good yields indoors.

To do this, you physically force the plant by providing no other options. You actually bend and gently manipulate your plants to grow into your desired shape, like an artist or scuptor.

You can use basically anything to tie plants down.

I highly recommend getting a spool of twisty tie or garden wire (soft, bendable wire, specifically made for the garden) to tie your plants down with. Garden wire is soft and pliable, yet strong. This allows you to quickly hook the wire around branches and secure the other end to whatever you want, without hurting your plants.

Yet you don’t need special garden wire to be successful. You can use anything from string to paper clips.

Feel free to get creative! After you attach one end to the part of the plant you want to train, the other end can be tied to weights, to the pots your plants are in, your hydroponics bucket, or most anything.

In the best case scenario, you want to keep everything self-contained, so you can easily move your plant around later.

Here’s the low-down on how to LST your plant…

How to LST

View the complete article with step-by-step pictures and explanation of each step here: https://www.growweedeasy.com/lst-low-stress-training

Step 1: Top or FIM your young plant when she’s only got 3-5 nodes.

This sets the stage for further LST

Step 2: Spread out your branches so they lie flat and secure them.

Especially in the very beginning, think of creating a “star” shape with your plant. The branches should be gently pulled down to lay as flat as possible.

Step 3: Supercrop your plants (optional)

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 & 3 throughout Vegetative stage and into first few weeks of Flowering Stage

If you’ve LST’ed properly during the vegetative stage, your plant will naturally grow rows of colas along the top of whatever shape plant you’ve created.

As you continue to spend time training and observing your plants, you’ll gain an even better understanding of how marijuana plants grow.

LST is more of an art form than a science, and it’s time for you to bring out your inner artist!

What is the bug:
For some reason, the infusion recipe for Infused Seeds will only produce Aer seeds, no matter what shards I use. I haven’t tried all of the shards yet, but so far I’ve tried both entropy and water shards and they both produce Aer seeds.

Mod & Version:
Thaumic Tinkerer

Can it be repeated:
Yes. All you have to do to see for yourself is make the infusion recipe for Infused Seeds with any shard other than air and you will get Aer seeds instead of the expected result.

Chill on it for a while friend. I asked him only a couple hours ago. I even pinged him on our infitech discord channel. He may be sleeping.

There aren’t a lot of people who know a lot about infused seeds, so I’m not shocked there’s little info out there. Xavion knows more about the subject than anyone else I know.

I’m here now, was just sleeping. Anyway the main thing of note I discovered is that you can differentiate by NBT with the crucible and arcane worktable but not the infusion altar, I got it done in Infitech but having a custom item added so it could try and more closely match the normal process but that’s unneeded and it can be made just the arcane worktable or crucible. For example with just the crucible the following should work.

So the main thing to note is that I’ve swapped the seeds to a crucible recipe of 32 messis, 32 meto, and 32 of the primal aspect the seed is with an item of a normal wheat seed. The reason why I remove the research and add a replacement instead of just clearing pages and readding is because of weirdness with TT that screws up localization of pages if you attempt to do that. It’ll also only display one of the recipes, I could make it display them all but that’d be trickier, simpler to just do it this way and assume people are smart to realise swapping from aer to ignis is needed to get ignis seeds. I’ve never figured out how to get it to do the thing where it cycles through a bunch of recipes in a single page so if you do mention it please.

Also one important thing to note is you have to be using TT 517 or earlier, builds are here. Some kind of bug caused by the ender io farmer support crashes your game if you try to harvest them otherwise.

is it possible to set a seed as not placable by the farming station? As this seed does weird things to the block underneath it.

HenryLoenwind commented Feb 2, 2016

This has been answered on IRC, but on the slim chance someone may find this in the future:

No, there is no blacklist. We might add one in the future, but prefer to add custom planters instead. One can also include a custom planter with their mod.

planting germinated weed seeds

How do I germinate marijuana seeds?

Table of Contents

Introduction: Cannabis Seed Germination

Cannabis germination is the process of getting your seeds to sprout, and you know sprouting has occurred when a little white tendril pops out of the seed.

The little white tendril that emerges from a cannabis seed during germination is your plant’s first root, known as a “taproot.” All other roots made by your cannabis plant in its lifetime will sprout from the taproot.

The taproot – and maybe a few tiny early offshoots of the taproot – will get longer and longer, pushing the seed up, and after the shell breaks through the surface of your growing medium, the first leaves (these first round leaves are known as “cotyledons”) will emerge from inside the cannabis seed.

The cotyledons were already created as part of the plant embryo in the seed itself, so the cannabis seedling doesn’t have to grow them. In fact, the emerging first leaves are what break apart the shell after it’s cracked open by the taproot, as pictured here.

The next set of leaves after the cotyledons are your plants first “true” leaves and will have jagged edges (serrations). At least, they are the first leaves that your seedling cannabis plant has grown all on its own, unlike the cotyledons which were already formed in the seed.

Cannabis seeds can be expensive, don’t waste your seeds with bad germination methods!
(Wait, where can I get cannabis seeds?)

What Do Marijuana Seeds Need to Germinate?

Marijuana seeds need the following to get the best germination rates:

  • Moisture – Keep things moist but not soaking (you can soak hard seeds for up to 24-32 hours, but do not leave seeds soaking in water for longer than that).
  • Peace – Seeds need to be left alone while you’re waiting for the taproot to show up.
  • Warmth – Keep things warm to get the best germination rates, but not too hot! Think springtime. Seeds can definitely germinate in cooler temps, but germination tends to take longer when it’s cool.
  • Gentle – Be careful when checking seeds, and treat them gently when you have to move them. Avoid touching their white root if possible; the taproot is very fragile and easily snaps off!
  • Plant Root Down – When planting germinated seeds, point the white root downwards into the growing medium to prevent the seedling from having to reorient itself.
  • Plant Knuckle Deep – When planting germinated seeds, they don’t have to be placed too far under in the growing medium, about a half inch to an inch (1.3 cm – 2.5 cm) down from the surface of the medium should be enough.

When germinating cannabis seeds, think springtime conditions. In the wild, your cannabis seeds would germinate in the spring so they can be ready to take full advantage of long summer days!

Never let your young sprouted seeds dry up!

The main signal that tells a marijuana seed to start sprouting is the presence of moisture and heat. The combination of warm and wet (aka spring conditions) “tells” the seed to start burrowing their main root (called a taproot) through their shell.

If a seed’s root breaks through the shell and the water around has dried up, your seedling will die. Plain and simple.

Seedlings are fragile at first. Once sprouted, the roots need to stay constantly moist to stay happy and healthy. It’s important to make sure the seeds have access to water the entire time during germination, no matter which cannabis germination method you end up using.

Keep things warm!

Seeds germinate best in warmer temperatures and young marijuana seedlings do better with higher relative humidity in the air. When seedlings are young, they grow faster and healthier when they can absorb moisture from the air through their leaves while their roots are still developing. Dry air won’t kill your seedlings, but it doesn’t make things better. Again, think springtime conditions!

You can use an incandescent bulb (or two) placed over the marijuana seed germination area to help keep things warm. Incandescent bulbs are the opposite of what a grower typically wants: they can’t be used as grow lights, but they’re great at generating heat. Some people will also place a heating pad (the kind you get from a garden store for seedlings) underneath seeds to help aid germination.

Basically, you want to make sure any seeds or sprouts are kept warm and moist at all times, that their roots are unexposed to light, and that they get planted right away.

There are several different methods to germinate your cannabis seeds, and in this article we’ll go through some easy techniques that have proven to be effective.

How do I know if my seeds are good?

Assume all dark seeds are viable, even if seeds can be crushed

Generally, pale-green or white seeds will not germinate, but most dark seeds will germinate when given good conditions.

I used to believe that marijuana seeds were only “good” if they were extremely hard and very dark. One of the first tests I heard to check new cannabis seeds for viability was to try to crush them between my fingers. If the seeds could be crushed, they weren’t good, or so I was told. This has proven to be absolutely terrible advice!

Some of the best plants I have ever grown have emerged from seeds which were flimsy and could be crushed between my fingers. As long as you provide great marijuana germination conditions (as explained above), I’ve found that a lot of seemingly “weak” seeds germinate and produce amazingly hardy plants and great buds.

I do not believe the health of the plant is directly tied to the apparent “health” of the seed. If the seed germinates, it’s a good seed!

Here’s a picture showing several healthy and viable cannabis seeds

Remember! Most of the medical strains of marijuana we grow today (learn how to get seeds) have been bred over many years to produce plants that are easy to grow and which produce potent, medicinal buds. However, these strains have not been selected for the toughness of the seeds they produce since that isn’t important to us as growers. Just remember…

As long as a seed germinates, it’s a good seed!

Germination Method 1: Starter Cubes & Seedling Plugs (Recommended)

One of the best cannabis germination methods is to use specifically-made starter cubes and seedling plugs. These plugs make cannabis germination easy. You simply place the seed in the cube or plug, add water as directed, and seedlings automatically get the perfect conditions for germination.

Each cube or plug already has a hole specifically for you to place your seed. Just stick your seed into the precut hole and pinch the top closed a bit with your fingers. Don’t worry, you can’t mess this part up ? As long as the seed makes it in there, you should be good.

This is one of the easiest germination methods and doesn’t leave a lot of room for error. Cannabis seeds and clones can be expensive, and sometimes we have genetics we just can’t afford to lose. When that’s the case, germinate your cannabis with one of the following recommended options to ensure as close to 100% germination rate as possible.

Which Starter Cubes Work Best for Germinating Cannabis?

Rapid Rooters (Highly Recommended For All Setups)

Rapid Rooters are easy to work with – you just stick your cannabis seed in the Rapid Rooter (pointy side down), keep your seed warm and slightly moist, and let the Rapid Rooter do its magic.

Sprouts emerge and roots appear in just a few days.

Rapid Rooter starter cubes are suitable for all growing methods, including hydroponics, coco coir and soil. They work for every setup and come from General Hydroponics, a trusted company (the same one used by NASA) which is known for the quality and consistency of its products.

I highly recommend using Rapid Rooters over any other starter plugs. They are less prone to problems and work great with any growing medium (including hydroponic systems).

Pros of Rapid Rooters

  • Easy to Use – You Can’t Really Mess Up
  • No Prep or Setup – Open the Package and Go
  • Some of the Best Germination Rates of Any Method

Cons of Rapid Rooters

  • Can only get 50+ at a time (General Hydroponics currently does not offer fewer plugs per package)
  • After opening the package, you only have a week or two before they dry out, so if you’re only germinating one or two seeds, you’ll end up having to throw many of the Rapid Rooters away.

There are a few different options for Rapid Rooters, which can be confusing if you’re not sure what you want. The 3 different options for Rapid Rooters are listed here…

Bag of Rapid Rooters

These are round on bottom instead of being a cube, which means they cannot stand up on their own. These are best suited to a hydroponic setup where the Rapid Rooter will be placed directly in the final destination. In our hydroponic setups, we’ve had near 100% germination rates with Rapid Rooters, better than any other seedling cube we’ve tried.

  • Round on bottom (won’t stand up by themselves without support) unless you squish the bottom so it’s flat like this grower did (pic)
  • Great for starting with Rapid Rooter directly in final destination (hydro, soil, coco coir, etc)
  • Get 50 Rapid Rooters at a time

Rapid Rooters Mat

This type of Rapid Rooters comes in a mat of (usually 98) Rapid Rooters. All the individual Rapid Rooters are sectioned off and have a hole for the seed, but they must be cut or pulled away from the complete mat. Unlike the type of Rapid Rooters that comes in a bag, these ones are made into cubes and are flat on the bottom so they can stand alone. This makes them good for germinating in a shallow pool of water where the cubes need to be able to stand up on their own.

  • Easily break cubes off the mat (already sectioned off with pre-cut holes)
  • Already shaped like cubes with flat bottoms, so they easily stand up by themselves
  • Good for seamlessly transplanting your seedlings somewhere else
  • Get 98 Rapid Rooters at a time

Rapid Rooters Tray

The Rapid Rooters tray is perfect for seeds or clones. Allow your young plants to sit in the tray with water until their roots are well formed and ready to be transplanted to your final destination. The standard size tray fits most humidity domes. You can refill the tray with Rapid Rooters from the bag or mat.

As you can see in the pictures below, the Rapid Rooter Tray comes packaged up. Once you open the package, you will see 50 Rapid Rooters already set in the tray. The resting place for each Rapid Rooter has a hole on the bottom so water within the tray is wicked up. The top part comes apart from the bottom.

Just add you seeds and pour some water into the tray – the Rapid Rooters will do everything else for you.

  • Perfect for cloning or starting seeds with a humidity dome (standard 10-inch by 20-inch dome like this one – 7-inch height recommended for cannabis seeds or clones)
  • Easy to transplant to new destination
  • Just add water and seeds, that’s it!
  • Whole tray can be refilled with any type of Rapid Rooters (from bag or mat)
  • Comes with 50 Rapid Rooters, ready to go

Rockwool Cubes (Not Recommended)

It’s often hydroponic cannabis growers who use Rockwool cubes since these can be safely placed in hydroponic setups, hold a lot of moisture, and are resistant to mold. Rockwool is cheap and easy to find. It comes in convenient cubes. But it does have some major drawbacks…

Pros of Rockwool

  • Cheap & Easy to Find
  • Inert Medium (useful for hydroponic growers)

Cons of Rockwool

  • Bad for the environment (unnatural material that does not break down)
  • Bad for your health (especially your lungs) – wear gloves and cover your mouth/eyes when handling Rockwool
  • Has a pH that is too high for cannabis, so it must be thoroughly rinsed and treated
  • Poor cloning and germination rates
  • Difficult for new growers

Rockwool cubes are bad for the environment

Rockwool is not a natural material – it’s made by heating rock and chalk to 3,000°F and air is blown through the mixture to create thin fibers of rocky material

It does not break down naturally and therefore after Rockwool is created, it will remain in that form basically forever, filling up landfills without breaking down for thousands of years.

Rockwool cubes can be bad for your health

Rockwool is dusty and needs to be rinsed thoroughly before use. Little pieces of Rockwool and dust can easily get in your eyes, skin and mouth. Small strands or fibers can get lodged in your lungs if you breathe in Rockwool dust, and it’s unknown if these fibers can ever get out again.

Protect yourself! Always use a mask, goggles and gloves when working with Rockwool.

Rockwool cubes have a high pH until they’re treated

New Rockwool cubes have a high pH – too high for healthy cannabis seed germination. Therefore it’s important to thoroughly rinse Rockwool cubes in pHed water, then let them soak in pHed water overnight before use. Since Rockwool holds onto a lot of water, after soaking they should be given a few days to dry out before planting seeds or making clones.

Rockwool cubes do not get great germination rates

Rockwool can be difficult to germinate marijuana seeds in, so I recommend most beginner growers sprout their seeds using another method like Rapid Rooters (mentioned above) which can also be used in hydroponic applications but are less prone to germination problems.

Many growers have placed seeds in Rockwool cubes, only to wait for weeks and never see seedlings appear.

Some growers seem to have no problems, yet many other growers suffer through very poor germination rates. Some seed companies will not honor seed germination guarantees if the grower uses Rockwool because it is notoriously bad for germination.

If you do use Rockwool, it’s recommended you germinate your seeds using another method like the paper towel method, then transplant your seeds to the Rockwool cubes after roots have already appeared.

Even when following all the best practices, we just have not gotten great germination rates with Rockwool cubes, and it’s common for new seedlings not to make it. When we were using Rockwool (before we switched to Rapid Rooters), we usually lost at least 1 seed out of a batch of 6 or 8.

We also had trouble rooting clones in Rockwool. Rockwool cubes just don’t hold enough air to get plenty of oxygen to the roots, and they tend to hold onto a lot of water and get waterlogged easily. Since Rockwool can hold a lot of water, it’s prone to “drowning” seeds

I highly recommend using Rapid Rooters instead for your hydroponic application (or any grow setup), as they are much more user-friendly and tend to get far better germination rates.

Jiffy Pellets (Recommended for Soil or Coco Coir)

Jiffy Pellets are used in a similar way to Rockwool cubes, though these tend to get much better germination results. Jiffy pellets are not suitable for most hydroponic setups where the roots are grown directly in water, but Jiffy Pellets can be directly transferred into soil or coco coir.

Pros of Jiffy Pellets

  • Good Germination Rates for Soil and Coco Coir
  • Good for Cloning – read a cannabis cloning tutorial using Jiffy pellets
  • Come in dried pellets, so they can be kept for a long time

Cons of Jiffy Pellets

  • Not suitable for hydroponic setups
  • Must be soaked to expand each pellet before use

How to Use: Soak Jiffy pellets in warm water, which makes the pellets expand in size, as pictured below.

Once the compressed Jiffy pellets have expanded in warm water, gently squeeze excess water from each pellet and you’re ready to go. Treat them the same as Rapid Rooters.

Germination Method 2: Plant marijuana seeds directly in growing medium

Sometimes nature’s way is the easiest way. In nature, marijuana seedlings would sprout in soil, and they would emerge as their taproots start growing down.

As a grower, you can also plant your seeds directly in your final growing medium. This works in all growing mediums, though some can be tougher than others.

One of the biggest benefits of planting your seed directly in the growing medium is you don’t have to worry about shocking your young seedling during transplant. Because your seed is already in its final resting place, your new seedling will immediately start adjusting to the environment. Every time you transplant a sprouted seed, it can cause stress as the young plant needs to readjust its new surroundings.

  • Soil – Plant seeds a knuckle deep (0.5-1 inch OR 1.3 cm – 2.5 cm) in moist yet not soaking soil. Use a light or a heating pad to keep things warm. This is one of the easiest marijuana germination methods for beginners.
  • Coco Coir or other soilless growing mediums – Plant in a similar way to soil

Germination Method 3: Germination Station

One option for growers is to use a tool which has been specifically designed to provide optimal germination conditions like this germination station with heat mat.

You can make a DIY germination station at home by putting a plastic dome over a plate on a heating pad.

There are benefits to the professionally made germination stations as they work very well and are pretty cheap to buy.

When growers start their cannabis seedlings in a germination station, the seeds are usually germinated in a starter seedling cube.

One of the advantages of starting seeds in starter cubes is your sprouted seeds can easily be transferred right to their next growing medium or container.

I recommend Rapid Rooters as these starter cubes work great for cannabis seeds and can be used in any growing medium including hydroponics, soil, or coco coir. Other starter cubes include Jiffy Peat Pellets, and Rockwool cubes.

Once your seed has sprouted, just make a little hole in your growing medium, and place the entire pellet inside. Make sure growing medium is also moist yet not soaking, like your pellet or cube. The roots will emerge from the bottom of the cube and burrow directly into your growing medium.

Germination Method 4: Soak Marijuana Seeds in Water Overnight

Another method to germinate marijuana seeds is to soak them overnight in slightly warm water, usually done in a glass drinking cup.

This method is especially effective for seeds which have extra hard shells, or seeds which are older (more than a few years old).

The warm overnight soaking can help “wake up” older seeds.

Most viable seeds will start out floating, and then eventually sink to the bottom of your glass after a few hours of soaking.

If soaked in a clear drinking glass, you will see when the little white tap root first breaks through the shell.

Some seeds take longer than others to sprout. Especially older seeds tend to need longer to pierce through their shell. However, if seeds are left soaking too long, and haven’t yet sprouted, they can drown.

Therefore, do not leave seeds soaking in water for more than 24-32 hours.

After 24 hours, I recommend putting any still-ungerminated seeds in a warm, moist place to finish germinating.

Germination Method 5: Paper Towel Method

One way to germinate seeds is to wet a paper towel and then fold your seeds in it, then leave the paper towel in a warm place.

Use cheap paper towels! For some reason, the really cheap paper towels work best because they’re so non-porous. Seeds and their roots lay on top without getting stuck to anything. This is important! The more expensive “cloth-like” paper towels (like Viva brand) aren’t good for germination because the roots actually grow into them instead of laying on top.

If you germinate your seeds in a paper towel, there is the risk of hurting the tap root (the little white root that grows out of your seeds) when moving the sprouted seeds so make sure you are careful when you’re checking to see if the seeds sprouted.

There is also the possibility of having the towel dry out which will kill your new seeds so I recommend putting your paper towel under an upside down bowl or between two paper (or regular) plates.

Check on germinating seeds once every 12 hours or so (don’t disturb them or their roots). You can plant any seeds which have sprouted right away, or leave them for another day or two, to let the others keep up.

How to Plant Your Germinated Cannabis Seeds

After you see that your cannabis seeds have sprouted, you should plant them right away.

You don’t want to touch the little white taproot with your fingers, so either carefully move the seeds, or use tweezers. If you do touch or break the root, the seedling may still survive, but any damage to the root will definitely stunt and slow down growth right in the beginning.

Root down!

Plant seeds so that the white root faces downward, about a knuckle deep into your growing medium. The top of the seed should be just below the surface of your growing medium.

It can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days before you see the young seedling emerge from the soil or growing medium. If your marijuana seedling hasn’t sprouted from the soil within 10 days after being placed root-down, it probably isn’t going to make it ? Even with the best practices and the best seeds, you will occasionally lose a seed. Many times it has nothing to do with you!

First sign of taproots. These are ready to be planted!

Rapid Rooters are nice, but not necessary. You can use them before you transfer your seedlings to their final container. The Rapid Rooter should be cut open lengthwise if you plan on using them for germinated seeds. I use big scissors.

Gently place the germinated seed inside, root down. Place the seed close to the surface so it doesn’t have far to go.

Sometimes you’ll have a taproot that is curved or bent. You don’t want to try to straighten it out! Open the Rapid Rooter you split, and lay the germinated seed down gently. The seed and root will naturally lay on the flattest side. Slowly close the Rapid Rooter, and you’ll see that the bent parts of the root will end up in the “crack” of the Rapid Rooter from where you cut to split it open from the side.

After closing a Rapid Rooter, it’s hard to tell it’s been opened. The texture of Rapid Rooters causes the seeds to stay in place and not “fall down” further into the hole once you’ve got it closed.

Sometimes the shell can get stuck on the seedling, but it will often fall off on its own. If it seems really stuck, you can help the seedling by gently removing it.

Within the first week of germinating seeds, you will notice that some seeds germinate right away and others take a little bit longer. This can be caused by a lot of things, from the age of the seed (old seeds have worse germination rates and tend to take longer) to simple chance. The amount of time does not necessarily have anything to do with how healthy your plant will be in the long run.

Once your seeds are safely planted, you can turn on your grow light. The heat from the lamp improves germination rates, and the light can help your new cannabis seedlings open their first set of leaves. In fact, the first set of leaves will often stay yellow until they get light.

If you will be transplanting your seedlings again, avoid transplanting until they are well established and have a couple of sets of leaves (nodes). Some growers will plant seedlings in a growing medium in a solo cup or peat pot, so they can just cut away the cup for easy transplanting.

When you move seedlings around a lot, it stresses them out and potentially stunts their growth. Too much stress can even kill them. So try to plan from the beginning so that you move your seedlings around as little as possible. once they get bigger, they are a lot more hardy and can stand a lot more stress and movement.

Here are some pictures to give you an idea of the timeline to expect

If you want, you can put bottles on top to help retain extra humidity (like a cheap humidity dome).

It’s a steady 85 degrees F in there, no idea about the humidity in the bottles.

Your Cannabis Seedling’s First Few Weeks

During the first few weeks of a young marijuana plant’s life, you have to be careful.

Marijuana seedlings, especially seeds from some of the most potent strains, tend to be a bit delicate.

Seedlings definitely won’t be able to withstand full-strength grow lights or nutrients. They need to have a moist environment, but also can easily be drowned or overwatered.

If you’re planting in soil, start with a balanced potting soil that doesn’t contain extra nutrients. I recommend Happy Frog potting soil mix for young cannabis seedlings, but any plain potting mix from your local garden store will do. Never use Miracle-Gro soil or any soil that has “time-released” nutrients already mixed in. After your plants have grown a few sets of leaves, you can transfer them to a stronger potting mix that contains higher levels of nutrients like Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil, or you can start supplementing with cannabis soil nutrients. Don’t want to use nutrients? Learn how to mix up your own super soil so it has all the nutrients your cannabis plants will need!

If you’re planting in coco coir, a soilless medium, or hydroponics, only add cannabis nutrients at seedling strength, or 1/4 the regular strength, until your plants have grown a few sets of leaves. Then you can slowly start working your way up to full strength nutrient levels.

With young marijuana seedlings, less is more.

You’re trying to give young plants a very small dose of nutrients at first. However, even with young marijuana seedlings, the pH of your water and growing medium is important. Some growers get lucky and happen to have water with the right pH, but if you’re noticing deficiencies and problems with your seedlings, definitely take the time to understand about marijuana root pH and how it affects the plant’s overall health.

If you plan on eventually putting your marijuana seedlings under high intensity grow lights (such as HPS or MH grow lights), you may want to start them out with less intense fluorescent grow lights or compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). Or just keep your high intensity grow lights several feet away at first, and slowly move lights closer as your seedlings gets older

CFL bulbs (twisty/spiral bulbs as pictured to the right) are a great source of light for young marijuana seedlings

  • CFLs provide the right types of light for seedlings
  • CFLs are extremely cheap to buy
  • CFLs are easy on your electric bill
  • CFLs can be found almost anywhere, at your local hardware store, supermart, grocery store, or online

Keep CFLs or fluorescent lights about 6 inches away from your seedlings. Place your hand where the leaves are to make sure it doesn’t feel too hot. If it’s hot for your after 10 seconds, it’s too hot for your plants.

Once your seedlings have developed their first two sets of leaves, then you can move these lights as close as 2 inches away as long as the lights aren’t too hot.

Remember: If grow lights feels too hot to your hand after 10 seconds, they’re too hot for your marijuana seedlings

Make sure to keep a close eye on your seedlings to ensure they don’t grow too close to the grow lights and burn themselves. Seedlings can grow fast, and many growers have been surprised to find plants have actually grown into the light overnight.

If new seedlings are showing signs of stress, try moving the lights further away and see if that helps.

Once marijuana seedlings are about fourteen days old, they’re ready to start being treated as if they’re in the vegetative stage.

This Timeline Will Help Show You What to Expect

Seedling
Two round cotyledon leaves, then two “real” (serrated) single-finger cannabis leaves

Next, the single-finger leaves expand, and the next set is usually 3-finger leaves

Next, the cannabis plant will start making 5-finger leaves

Finally, most cannabis plants stop at 7-finger leaves

If you look closely at the above plant, you can see that some of the newer leaves on this plant actually have 9 fingers. It is normal for there to be some variation between leaves – some plants will grow leaves with 11 or even 13 fingers. But the above guide will give you a general idea of what to expect.

Once your cannabis seedling is about fourteen days old, it’s ready to start being treated as if in the vegetative stage.

Make sure you learn about plant training techniques to make the most of your time in the vegetative stage!

Wait! My seed is growing upside down with the roots up; what do I do?

As long as the roots of a cannabis seedling are able to grow down, they will. Roots never grow upward on their own. Seedlings can sense the difference between up and down. Roots always try to grow down. Roots never grow upwards.

So how come sometimes it looks like a cannabis plant is growing with its roots pointing up?

When the seed end is still bent down, all you see is a U-shaped stem/root

Cannabis seeds can look a bit different when germinating. When in doubt, always wait a few days to see if leaves appear before you try to interfere.

Sometimes the stem of a brand new cannabis seedling can look like the roots growing out the top. But if you wait and watch, you’ll see that it’s all part of the plan. Hope these pics help someone!

Sometimes you’ll see what appears to be roots emerging from your cannabis seed, but this is actually the stem. The stem pushes the seed and leaves up, and the main taproot is currently burrowing down to support the seedling

As the seedling emerges you’ll be able to see the leaves (sometimes it will still have the seed stuck on the first leaves, like in the picture above).

The cotyledons (first, round leaves) unfurl, and then the regular cannabis leaves between to grow. Here’s another view of that same seedling from above. Even though it may have looked a bit weird at first, this seedling is completely normal and will grow just fine from now on.

What Size Pot Should I Use?

When growing cannabis plants in a container, you have to choose the size of your pot.

A general guide is to have about 2 gallons per 12″ of height. This isn’t perfect since plants often grow differently, but this is a good rule of thumb.

When in doubt, get a bigger final container size as opposed to a smaller one. Plants that get rootbound from being in a too-small container will grow more slowly and be prone to problems. It’s not good to transfer plants during the flowering/budding stage, so you want to have your cannabis plants in their final container at least 2 weeks before the beginning of flowering/budding. How do I get my cannabis plants to start flowering?

Final Container for Desired Plant Size – General guide

2-3 gallon container

3-5 gallon container

5-7 gallon container

6-10 gallon container

8-10+ gallon container

But what size pot should you use for your seedlings?

For fastest growth rates, it’s better to plant young seedlings or clones in a very small container, like a disposable plastic solo cup.

For new seedlings and clones, use a small container if possible

The reason you want to start with a small container is that your plant’s young roots thrive on oxygen. Cannabis plant roots “breathe” oxygen, just like we breathe air, and it’s important that young cannabis roots get plenty of oxygen so the plant can grow as fast as possible.

However, young plant roots do not drink much water yet. When you water seedlings or clones in a very big container, they will use up all the oxygen quickly, and the large size of the container will prevent the growing medium from drying out.

A big plant will drink up all the water quickly, but with seedlings, you’re basically waiting for the growing medium to dry out by itself. While you’re waiting for the container to dry out, your cannabis roots are sitting in a wet environment and not getting much oxygen, slowing down their growth rates.

Poke holes in the bottom of your cup so water can drain out easily!

By planting young seeds in a small container with holes in the bottom, the growing medium will dry out much more quickly, allowing you to water more often. The young cannabis will get plenty of oxygen and water.

Alternative to Solo Cup: Start plants in seedling cube

If you don’t want to have to transplant your young plants, you can start them in a seedling plug or cube and wait until you start seeing roots come out the bottom. At that point, they will be ready to be transferred to a larger container.

What happens if I plant seeds or clones in a big container?

Your cannabis seedlings and clones will definitely survive in a bigger container; they just won’t grow as fast for the first few days or weeks because they aren’t getting as much oxygen.

With a bigger container, you will need to wait longer between waterings, and during that time your plant roots will be getting reduced oxygen.

If you’ve planted your young plant in a large container, try to give only a little bit of water at a time (enough to wet the area around the seedling roots) until the plant is growing vigorously. Once the plant has grown a few sets of leaves, you should start watering cannabis normally so that water drains out the bottom.

One of the advantages of starting young plants in a big container is you won’t have to transfer them to bigger containers as they get older.

How do I germinate marijuana seeds? Table of Contents Introduction: Cannabis Seed Germination Cannabis germination is the process of getting your seeds to sprout, and you know sprouting

How to properly plant weed seeds after germination?

In our previous blog “Germinating marijuana seeds” you could read how to germinate marijuana seeds. Germinating is the preparation process to successfully grow a cannabis plant.

As soon as the seed has a root you can plant the seed. Planting cannabis seeds is not difficult at all. Yet, it does require some basic knowledge and skills. This article will help you to plant your cannabis seeds so you start your grow in the best way possible.

Why germinate before planting?

Of course you can place a cannabis seed directly in the soil, but this has three disadvantages:

  • The seed can become too moist, causing it to rot.
  • The seed stays too dry so it can’t grow. And because the seed is under the ground you can’t control it.
  • You can’t determine the direction of growth of the root. In short, our advice is to germinate before you start planting cannabis seeds.

When you should plant your cannabis seeds

When you have followed our advice your seeds have sprouted and you can start planting your seeds. Make sure the seeds have a root of at least 1.5 to a maximum of 2.5 centimeters. Are you planting the germinated cannabis seeds too early or too late? Then there is a chance that the plant dies at a young age. It is therefore important that you plant the germinated seeds as soon as the root is long enough.

Always plant indoors first

Good to know is that you first plant and your cannabis seeds indoors, even if you will eventually grow them indoors or outdoors. The reason to let young female plants grow indoors first is because they are fragile in the beginning. A gust of wind can blow the plant over or be damaged by animals. Indoors you have a safe environment where the young seedling can become strong enough before it is moved outside.

What do you need to plant germinated cannabis seeds?

Fortunately, you don’t need much to plant your germinated cannabis seeds. A lot of things are already standard available in your home and otherwise you can buy them at any garden center.

What you need:

  • Lightproof pot or mug of 1 to 2 liters
  • Potting soil (light mix for cuttings and seedlings)
  • Pen or pencil
  • Tweezers
  • Germinated cannabis seeds
  • Plant sprayer

Are all items present? Then the real work starts: planting your cannabis seeds. Use the step-by-step plan below.

How to plant marijuana seeds in 4 simple steps?

In four simple steps you will learn how to successfully plant cannabis seeds. Whether you’re an advanced or beginner, want to grow indoor or outdoor seeds, the process is always the same. Follow the steps below carefully and you’ll grow your own beautiful cannabis plant.

  1. Fill the pot or cup with potting soil
  2. Make a dimple in the earth
  3. Place the weed seed in the dimple
  4. Cover the seed with a thin layer of earth

Step 1 – fill the pot or cup with potting soil

Fill the cup or pot up to 1 cm below the edge with potting soil (light mix for cuttings or seedlings). Do not add extra nutrients. Seedlings get more than enough nutrients from the soil. Too much nutrient can have a negative effect.

Step 2 – make a small dimple

To plant your cannabis seeds you make a dimple in the growing medium. You can easily do this by inserting your pen or pencil into the soil. The tiny hole should be about 2 to 2.5 cm deep. If you mark this on the side of your pencil, you can be sure that the depth is good.

Step 3 – place the cannabis seed in the dimple

Use your fingers or tweezers to place the weed seed in the hole. Do this carefully, because if you squeeze too hard you can damage the germinated seed. The root of the seed should point downwards (!).

Tip: did you use damp kitchen paper towels when germinating and is the root of the seed attached to it? Do not pull it loose, but first spray the seed again with water. You will see that the seed now easily lets go.

How should you plant the weed seed?

Make sure that when you plant your cannabis seed, the root disappears as deep as possible into the hole. The skin of the seed should be at least 0.5 cm below the surface.

Step 4 – cover the seed with a thin layer of soil

Did you put the seed in the tiny hole? Great! Cover the seed carefully with a thin layer of soil. Do not press the soil! A few millimeters of soil over the seed is more than enough to block the grow lights or sun. Spray the surface moist with the plant sprayer and place the cup or pot in the window sill or under light. After a few days the seeds will grow out the surface.

Your cannabis seeds have been planted! How to proceed?

You’re already on your way to grow your cannabis plant. But maybe you want to continue growing marijuana plants outdoors in the end.

As said before, you do the beginning of the growing process indoors and that takes about two weeks. After two weeks the plant is strong enough to repot to another place or larger pot to continue growing. How to do this, we tell you in the blogs:

blueberry strain yield

8 Tips for Growing Blueberry Cannabis

Blueberry marijuana is one of those strains that lives up to its name. It’s sweet and tastes just like blueberries! However, growing the Blueberry marijuana strain has particular issues that some growers don’t quite know how to master. These include long flowering times, peculiarities regarding nutrients, and the training techniques necessary to make sure the plant thrives.

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 #1: Strain Review – Understand Blueberry’s Genetics

Blueberry is a West Coast staple strain, created by American breeder DJ Short. DJ Short was working with an exciting mix of landrace strains. These are indigenously grown strains such as Afghani from Afghanistan or Purple Thai from Thailand. Though previously limited to their local area, DJ Short helped bring them to the worldwide stage. He utilized a myriad of breeding projects to create his ideal strain. And thus, Blueberry was born.

Blueberry is admired not just for its high THC content, but for its excellent blueberry flavor as well.

Blueberry has a distinct taste and smell of fresh blueberries. Users commonly take Blueberry as a nightcap, or in preparation for relaxation. It is famous for its dreamy indica effects.

Too many indicas have an unfortunate reputation for causing couch lock, but Blueberry doesn’t have any of that kind of nonsense. Instead, you get a calm, peaceful euphoria that leaves you feeling ready to have a great night’s sleep. It is used as a pain reliever or a relaxant by many individuals. Read our in-depth Blueberry strain review by following the link below.

Everything you need to know ab…

Tip #2: Growing Difficulty – How Hard Is Blueberry to Cultivate?

Blueberry is a straightforward strain to grow. There are some mild quirks, such as the exact quantity and type of nutrients required. There are also a few special pruning techniques you can perform to make the yield as high as possible. However, Blueberry is ideal if you want to grow a strain with minimal effort and not worry about yield.

On the other hand, you must master a few tricks to maximize the yield. These methods could also increase the overall quality of the bud.

Tip #3: Growing Techniques

Blueberry is a strain that you must commit to growing in the open sun, as it really shines outdoors. However, it can get a bit weak at the start of the growth period. Therefore, it is wise to start it in your greenhouse early, and then plant outside once the last frost is gone.

Something special you can do to help increase your yield is to work on “topping” your plants. This means you trim away at the tops of the plant as it grows. The goal is to sculpt the growing Blueberry plant into a bush shape. If it grows into this structure, the plant puts more effort and resources into developing more buds. It may also take up less space than if it is trying to grow taller.

Additionally, regular pruning of the plant will help prevent powdery mildew. This annoying affliction loves to focus on top-heavy plants. To keep them happy, make sure they’re pruned regularly and given sufficient nutrients to ensure a high yield and a fertile plant.

Tip #4: Increasing Blueberry’s Yield

Blueberry cannabis has a pleasant reputation for incredibly high yields compared to other strains. A considerable part of this is the aforementioned bushy shape.

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.

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.

Tip #5: Feeding Blueberry

Blueberry is a strain you should start in your greenhouse before moving outside. As such, you have a unique opportunity to prepare your soil in advance. Before you progress to outdoor growing, enrich the soil with the necessary nutrients.

Blueberry requires a decent amount of nitrogen compared to other strains. This fact becomes even more critical when you move a plant from inside a greenhouse to the outside. There is a change from a constant temperature to fluctuations outdoors. Therefore, your plants will use a lot of nutrients, especially as they strive to grow taller.

Make sure your plants are rooted firmly into the ground. After they begin to flower, try and litter the top of the soil with worm castings. Though that might sound strange to the uninitiated, try and take a look at the earth behind the trail of an earthworm. As it eats through dirt and compost, it leaves behind a nutrient-rich waste product which we call worm casting. This is naturally aerated because it passed through the worm’s digestive system.

You can ensure the plants are as nutrient-rich as possible by adding bat guano to the soil after the worm casting. This is, of course, another animal’s waste, but this time from bats! Bat guano is naturally high in phosphates and nitrogen due to the excess nutrients consumed by the winged creatures. It might smell strongly of animals and gunpowder, but your Blueberry plants will love it.

Don’t worry about any weird smells or anything else affecting the quality or taste of your buds. Blueberry is a vigorous plant and it’ll create the same pleasant taste regardless of what you feed it.

Tip #6: Growing Outdoors/Indoors

Blueberry is a remarkably versatile strain, able to handle surprisingly cold temperatures compared to what you might expect. It’s a perfect plant for planting in northern climates, such as the northeast of the USA or the frighteningly cold Midwest.

Blueberry is a strain best grown outside, thanks to its love of the natural sun and abundance of nutrients. Also, the quality and quantity of buds won’t be anywhere near as amazing if you grow it entirely indoors. Therefore, you should put it outside and enjoy some of the best buds you can imagine.

Most people opt for soil as the growing medium, whether you grow inside or outside. ‘Super soil’ purchased from stores contains a wide variety of nutrients for your Blueberry plants. Greensand is becoming a popular addition to marijuana plant soil. It is mineral glauconite, sourced by mining the ocean floor.

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 #7: Blueberry Flowering Time

Blueberry cannabis has a pretty decent flowering time at 7-9 weeks on average. You can expect to see fresh Blueberry buds in less than two months, in some cases. This strain is remarkable for several reasons, but its quick flowering time amps up its excellent reputation. Not only do you get fantastic tasting, calm-inducing weed, but you get it relatively quickly as well.

Tip #8 Climate for Growing the Blueberry Strain

Blueberry is a strain that prefers a milder climate than others. Its perfect temperature range is between 65 and 80 Fahrenheit, though it’s surprisingly adept at withstanding colder temperatures.

This ability to resist the discomfort of colder nighttime temperatures makes Blueberry a favorite for those living in the American Midwest or the northeast.

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.

Just make sure it won’t face those kinds of temperatures for more than a couple nights in a row. Even the hardiest plant can’t survive freezing temperatures for long without dying or producing a low yield.

Final Thoughts on Growing Blueberry Marijuana

Blueberry Cannabis is a strain that is dependable, reliable and hardy. It offers a surprisingly high yield that will leave you with more buds than you know what to do with.

It’s a pretty easy strain to manage yourself. Perhaps the trickiest issue involves finding a greenhouse, to begin with. If you can find such a space, the next step is to move it outside to flourish under the natural sun.

With some surprisingly specific feeding requirements, Blueberry is a perfect strain for those looking to grow their own weed. Ideally, you will have the land necessary to produce it. The best yields are obtained by cultivating it both outdoors and in a general, bush shaped pattern rather than as a regular tall plant. You need lots of space to get the best out of your Blueberry strain.

Blueberry offers high yields, a wide temperature range, and the opportunity to play around with both worm and bat excrement. Once harvested, the Blueberry strain will have you relaxing and feeling euphoric in no time.

Hellmutt Bones – 30.07.2019

Dont sleep on this strain. Took about 52-56 days to harvest.
Likes moderate to high nutes.

Lots of pruning till harvest but with moderation.

I pruned like 5% each day till week 5 of flower.

Did first run and was less than average yeild.
Second run did lots of pruning and tripled the yeild.
Grows slow asf. So needed lots of veg and pruning also did scog.
Over all I would recommend. One of the few strong strains that I’ve grown. Never turned blue. Some faint hints of lavender. But thats it.
Blueberry taste for sure.

Taste 10
Potency is powerful 9. Good for the days you can really zone out.
Yeild if done right is 8
Look is green like any other.
Difficulty growing is 7-8 on the count of the amount of nutes and the length of time it takes to veg and prune. Lots of leaf.

Richfield – 13.07.2017

Wuchs:
Die Blueberry wuchs (innen) Hybrid lastig (groß, breit, mit mitlleren Blättern). Die
Blüte-stände waren überdurchschnittlich mit Harz überzogen. Die Sorte wuchs in der
vegetativen Phase normal schnell. Der Strech war für eine Indica enorm hoch.
Der Ertrag war auch hoch, obwohl man ja öfters liest, dass Blueberry Genetiken weniger
abwerfen sollen. Die Qualität, der Blütenstände war sehr überdurchschnittlich !! Zwitter
hatte ich auch keinen, obwohl ich feminisiertes Saatgut verwendet habe !
Die Sorte reagierte ausgesprochen gut aufs Toppen und hatte an allen Seitentrieben relativ
große Blüten. Das Verhältnis zwischen Blüten und Blatt-Masse war normal.
Die Sorte konnte durchschnittlich gut manikürt werden. Die Sorte benötigte aber
mindestens 8-9 Wochen um ernte reif zu sein. Auf Grund der langsamen Blüteeinleitung
kann ich mir nicht vorstellen, dass man die Sorte auch draußen (in Deutschland)
anbauen kann !!

Aroma/Rauch:
Die frischen Blüten (direkt nach der Ernte) haben beerig und stark süßlich gerochen.
Nach dem Trocken und dem Zerkleinern, habe die Blüten dann eher leicht süßlich
(nach tropischen Früchten) und leicht zitronig gerochen. Der Rauch war ausgesprochen
mild und leicht süßlich. Vom Rauch und dem Geruch her war die Sorte echt Spitzenklasse !!

Wirkung:
Insgesamt war der Effekt eher Indica lastig mit einem leichten Sativa Einfluss.
Der Effekt war körperlich entspannend und geistig leicht anregend.
In den geistig anregenden Phasen war lustig und gut gelaunt aber weniger
euporisch und überdreht. Während des Rausches war man öfters geistig
weggetreten und motorisch grober. Insgesamt hat sich der Rausch angefühlt
als wäre man stark betrunken gewesen. Während des Rausches konnte kaum einen
klaren Gedanken fassen. Die Wirkungsdauer lag bei (ca 3 – 4 Stunden).
Mit dem Ausklingen des Effekts war man anschließend sehr schläfrig.

Fazit:
Die Blueberry war eine normal wüchsige Indica Sorte mit einem hohen Ertrag.
Die Blütenstände waren überdurchschnittlich mit Harz überzogen. Der Effekt
war überdurchschnittlich stark und vor allem Indica lastig. Wer auf süßliche
und beerige Aromen steht und einen Indica lastigen Effekt bevorzugt, kann
diese Sorte mit gutem Gewissen ausprobieren. Insgesamt kann ich die
Sorte nur Indica Liebhabern weiter empfehlen.

Anmerkung:
Eine günstigere und stärkere alternative ist die Strawberry Blue von World of Seeds.

UDZR1 – 23.03.2013

This strain is great. Smoke report below.
Grow report
I grew 25 seedlings feminized in a 120x120x200cm grow tent. I veg them for 20 days and flower them for 60 days.
Good CO2 ventilation and good climate (see K2 grow video)
They were grown totally organic. All Mix soil, 11 liter pots, 1 gram of trichoderma/miccorrhizae per pot, I brew carbohydrate teas along with Voodoo Juice and I added 2 grams of miccos in the solution,I let it bubble for 3 days, once in a while I added humic/fulvic Acid to the solution for an even better colonization of beneficial micro-organisms. I started Bio Bloom 3 weeks after the switch to 12/12, at medium doses. No PK chelates shit. Just organic teas and organic Bloom.
Plants are very uniform. Starting 12/12 at 25cm tall, they will grow up to 120cm. They grow with 1 main huge cola. Short internodes.They are perfect for tight SOG systems. Very few branches!
I harvested 400 grams for 600w of light (approx 16g per plant)
Smoke report
Complete couchlock. Very heavy body stone. Fruity taste.
Great strain..

plantepaz – 25.01.2012

Not much crystals in leaves. Very strong grow in vega. Herms with high temps.
BioBizz Biobloom 2-6-3+
Photogenesis (Made in BR) 2,5-4-5,5 NPK Only
FoxFarm Solid Line
Hum-i-Solve (humic+fluvic acid and B, made in BR)
Oganic others.

High and budy! Low Narco, but present.
Interessant ligh wood with berry taste and exelent smell when we cath a fire!

cashcropken – 12.11.2011

this plant stretched alot and never really produced much resin. feminized seeds hermi so I had to pull them up.

zels420 – 18.01.2011

This blueberry didn’t perform the best for me. The extra 7- 10 days that it takes in comparison to other blueberrys (mold issues being the reason) the extra time did not equal higher yield, however it ran great indoors.Should likely be grown further south for better results.

when does the strain come back on 2021

New COVID ‘Super Strains’ Could Disrupt Life Again

Jan. 6, 2021 — After 10 months of masks, social distancing, virtual school, fear for vulnerable loved ones, and loneliness, this is the news no one wanted to hear: The virus that causes COVID-19 has changed — once again — in ways that make it more contagious.

At least one new “super strain” of the virus is already in the U.S. Another highly contagious strain from South Africa could be on its way. As bad as things are now, experts believe these new strains are not responsible for the spike in cases seen in many states as people fall ill after holiday travel.

The strains are about 50% more contagious than the virus that has been most widely circulating in the United States, though it doesn’t seem to be more fatal for any one person who catches it.

The danger of the new Covid variant isn’t that it’s more severe, but that it’s more contagious. If more people get infected, this will increase the burden on already-overwhelmed hospitals—and lead to more deaths.

— Dr. Tom Frieden (@DrTomFrieden) January 5, 2021

While that may seem reassuring, it could be disastrous on a wider scale. One public health expert believes the virus is changing itself to adapt and infect more people.

Another, Adam Kucharski, PhD, an associate professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who specializes in the math of infectious disease outbreaks, says the math shows the infectious strain will be more deadly.

Kucharski recently compared how many people would die after 10,000 new infections over the course of a month. With the current situation, with a virus that sees each patient infect an average of 1.1 others and kills .08% of everyone it infects, you’d predict 129 deaths over a month of spread. With a virus that’s 50% more deadly, you would expect to see about 193 deaths over a month of spread. With a virus that’s 50% more contagious, you end up with 978 more deaths over a month of spread — or five times as many deaths.

This means that unless the U.S. adjusts its response to the pandemic, and adjusts quickly, hospitalizations and deaths could reach terrifying peaks in this country over the next few weeks as the variant strains cause a new wave of infections here.

More Infections, More Deaths

Ashish Jha, MD, dean of the Brown School of Public Health, projected on Tuesday that as the new strains take hold in the U.S., they could cause an additional 10 million new infections by the end of February and as many as 150,000 more deaths.

“Without aggressive action to limit the spread of the virus, bolster health care systems around the country, and accelerate vaccine administration, Los Angeles offers a preview of what many communities are likely to experience over the coming months,” he said in a news release.

Hospitals in Los Angeles are severely constrained. On Monday, Los Angeles EMS crews were told to conserve oxygen, because of a shortage of portable oxygen tanks, and not to transport some patients to crowded hospitals if they could not restore their pulse.

Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, predicted Sunday on Face the Nation that the new strain would be responsible for the majority of new infections in this country by March.

“It’s a big deal for a world that’s already stretched trying to keep in control the old variant,” said Marc Lipsitch, PhD, a professor of epidemiology at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health in a call with reporters on Tuesday.

“If we don’t change our control measures, once it becomes common, it will accelerate transmission considerably,” he said.

Tracing, Testing, Vaccinating

Lipsitch believes contact tracing efforts in the U.S. — which have been overwhelmed in many places by community spread of the virus — should pivot to focus just on breaking the chains of transmission caused by the new variants.

News of the variants has come as the administration of new vaccines has lagged in the U.S., further raising the worry that these strains will get a foothold before people can be protected against them.

Already, one new “super strain” of the virus is driving an alarming surge of COVID cases in Great Britain. On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson — who had resisted tougher control measures for weeks — reluctantly ordered strict new lockdown measures in that country, following close behind similar moves in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Defending his actions against the economic harm they would cause, he said he had no choice but to lock down again as new cases threatened to overwhelm hospitals.

Once again, most children will stay home for school, and people have been asked not to leave home except to do a very limited number of essential tasks, like seeking health care or going grocery shopping.

A new report from Imperial College London found that a greater proportion of children were infected with the new strain, compared to the older version of the virus. It’s not clear yet if its mutations make it better at infecting children, or if younger people were just more likely to be exposed to it because kids have continued to go to school there, even as many adults have stayed home.

Seven States and Countng

One of the new super strains — the so-called U.K. variant — has been detected in six U.S. states, according to the CDC: Colorado, California, Georgia, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania. One other state is still looking into cases and hasn’t made an announcement, according to Greg Armstrong, MD, director of advanced molecular detection at the CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases. Armstrong thinks fewer than one in 200 COVID-19 cases in the U.S. are currently caused by mutated UK strain, but there’s some uncertainty around that number because the U.S. has done a limited number of gene tests on samples of the SARS-CoV2 virus.

His estimates are based on results from commercial testing companies Illumina and Helix, which have partnered with the CDC to look for the variant as they process COVID tests. Helix screened more than 2 million COVID tests for signs of the variant. They forwarded 158 samples to Illumina for further testing. Of those, 51 were positive for the UK variant. According to the companies, as of Jan. 6, 54 cases of the UK variant had been identified in the U.S.

Going forward, the plan is for Illumina to sequence the genomes of 1,000 samples per week to look for the UK variant and others.

Many people infected with the new variant have no history of travel, which suggests it is already being passed person-to-person in some areas.

Surging Before Variant

Still, experts believe this variant is not the main reason for the surges of cases in the U.S. The South African variant has not yet been detected in the U.S., though it has been in the U.K.

Commercial labs doing PCR testing for the virus are looking for cases where one of the three probes — or markers — they use to detect proteins in the spike of the virus is negative while the other two probes are positive.

These “s-gene dropouts” can happen with many versions of the virus that are circulating, not just the super strains. Labs then have to follow up with a test that reads all the genes in the virus to look for the signature mutations in the super strains.

The University of Washington is actively doing this genome sequencing to look for the U.K. strain, but it hasn’t found any cases out of 250 positive cases it screened last week, says Alex Greninger, MD, PhD, assistant director of the clinical virology laboratories at the University of Washington Medical Center.

Not All Mutations Are the Same

Viruses mutate all the time. Mutations are errors a virus makes when it copies itself. Coronaviruses mutate more slowly than most others because they have a built-in proofreading mechanism that corrects these errors.

But they can still change in ways that the proofreader doesn’t catch or fix.

Most of the time, these changes don’t make them more harmful. But sometimes a mutation makes for a competitive advantage, something that allows that version to outperform the viruses around it.

Because the new coronavirus has infected so many millions of people around the world, it has had more opportunity to mutate, and it is adapting to become better at infecting people.

“beast mode COVID” a most appropriate title for the variant that could render public health recommendations substantially futile during the winter months and turn the Pandemic into a race between Beast mode COVID and vaccination success.

— Paul A Sobotka, MD, FACC, FAHA (@sobotka_paul) January 5, 2021

Both the U.K. super strain and the super strain found in South Africa have the same mutation on their spike protein — called N501Y. But each strain developed the mutation independently. When you see things like that, Greninger says, it probably didn’t happen by chance. The virus is evolving in ways that make it better at infecting humans.

“To me, the dominant story of the U.K. variant right now, as it stands, is adaptation to humans,” he says.

The mutations on the viruses’ spike protein work together to make the virus more infectious, according to recent research by Rafael Najmanovich, PhD, a professor of systems and structural biology at the University of Montreal.

The spike proteins on the virus rotate between “open” and “closed” positions. They can attach to doors on our cells called ACE2 receptors only when they are in their open positions.

Najmanovich’s modeling shows new gene changes allow the spike proteins to stay open about 40% longer than the older versions of the virus, which means that each individual particle of virus is more likely to be able to infect our cells when we come into contact with it.

In theory, that means fewer copies of the virus — a smaller dose — is needed to make a person sick, though Najmanovich says this still needs to be proved in an experiment. His research has been published in a preprint article that has not yet been peer-reviewed.

Lockdowns, Restrictions Possible

Because the virus is becoming more potent, we will need stricter measures to control its spread.

In recent days, some public health experts, like former CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, who now leads the nonprofit Resolve to Save Lives, said it might be a good idea for people to wear more protective masks — like surgical masks or N95 respirators, though these still may be in short supply across the country.

Lipsitch, at Harvard, said given the more contagious nature of the new variants, it’s more important than ever to stay home as much as possible, limit contact with those outside your household, and, he said, cut daily contacts by at least a third to slow the pace of new infections and once again flatten the curve.

It’s still not known whether the mutations will affect how well the approved vaccines work, but experts believe that because vaccines generate a big immune response in the body that acts against the virus in different ways, the new shots will probably still work, though pharmaceutical companies are running tests now to make sure.

Still, the vaccines won’t help if they aren’t made more widely available, more quickly.

Ultimately, the new strains could send kids back to virtual learning, just as schools in many areas were getting ready to reopen.

“If we’re not going to close other kinds of activities, we shouldn’t close schools, because schools are more important than almost anything else that we do in terms of what they produce and what they allow the rest of society to do,” Lipsitch said, but the virus many not give us a choice.

The new variants could prove to be disastrous on a wider scale. One public health expert believes the virus is changing itself to adapt and infect more people.

Another New Covid-19 Variant Discovered In L.A. Might Be Vaccine Resistant, Researcher Says; Strain First Identified In Denmark

Two days after the Los Angeles Public Health Department announced that the much-talked-about UK variant of Covid-19, known as B.1.1.7, had been identified in the region, the California Department of Public Health revealed that another lesser-known strain had been circulating in the county as well.

Known as L452R, the newly announced arrival was first identified in Denmark in March. It showed up in California as early as May.

Dr. Charles Chiu, a virologist and professor of laboratory medicine at UCSF who, in concert with state authorities, has been genetically sequencing test samples to identify new variants said early indications are the L452R might be less susceptible to the currently approved vaccines, but more investigation is needed.

“This variant carries three mutations, including L452R, in the spike protein, which the virus uses to attach to and enter cells, and is the target of the two vaccines that are currently available in the United States,” said Dr. Chiu. A spike protein mutation could, then, interfere with the vaccine’s efficacy.

According to the California Department of Public Health, Santa Clara County has sequenced a large number of positive specimens collected from community testing sites and outbreaks in the county. The L452R was present in specimens from the community and from several large outbreaks, including outbreaks where very high numbers of people exposed contracted the virus.

“This variant was identified in several large outbreaks in our county,” said Santa Clara County Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody. She called that correlation “a red flag and must be investigated further.”

The new variant also has been detected in Los Angeles, Mono, Monterey, Orange, Riverside, San Francisco, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Humboldt and Lake counties. Because genomic sequencing is sparse, it is currently unknown how prevalent L452 is statewide, nationally or globally.

Dr. Chiu said L452R grew from about 3.8% of the samples he tested in late November 2020 through early December to more than 25.2% in late December through early January 2021.

And there might be another issue with vaccine efficacy.

California’s State Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan said on Sunday that a “higher than usual” number of people had apparent allergic reactions to a batch of Moderna’s vaccine at a San Diego-area clinic.

“Out of an extreme abundance of caution,” Pan recommended that clinics should stop using doses from that specific batch until it is investigated.

California received about 330,000 doses from the lot in question. That equates to approximately 10% of all vaccine distributed to date across the state.

On Monday, the state’s numbers were mostly down, which is good. There were just over 30,000 new cases, 201 new deaths, 20,968 virus patients hospitalized and 1,113 ICU beds available. That last figure is the lowest number of ICU beds available during the pandemic, which is worrying.

There is also the potentially more contagious UK variant, B.1.1.7., on the horizon. Los Angeles Public Health officials confirmed the first case of that strain in the area over the weekend.

Though Saturday may mark the strain’s first identified appearance in Los Angeles County, health officials said in recent weeks that it was very likely already circulating in L.A. B.1.1.7 had previously made its way through San Diego and San Bernardino Counties. Before that, the strain had been found in Colorado, where it made its U.S. landfall.

The CDC warned that the presence of B.1.1.7 may mark a new phase of “exponential growth” in total Covid-19 cases.

“Current projections by the experts predict that if left unchecked, this variant could dominate locally by March,” Los Angeles Public Health director Barbara Ferrer said on Friday.

We can now add to that the threat of a potentially vaccine-resistant strain, L452R, as well.

As a result, L.A. County officials have been discussing the possibility of new restrictions for the shutdown-weary county.

Known as L452R, the newly-announced strain was first identified in Denmark and now might account for up to 25% of the cases in California.

About this Hybrid Strain

Alien Moon Pie sounds more like a dessert than a cannabis strain.Originally bred by In House Genetics, is an indica-dominant hybrid, created by crossing Alien Moon Shine (aka “Aliens on Moonshine”) with Black Cherry Pie.It has a reputation for being a potent strain.For example, our batch was grown by Superior Cannabis and tests at about 24% THC!

This strain’s name is quite fitting, as it is a unique appearance and looks like it comes from another planet.Alien Moon Pie buds are thick and sticky, with coiled lime and fern-green leaves.The buds are absolutely drenched in webs of white crystal-trichomes, as if cotton has been strung around them, and then littered with orange furry pistils.The thick, cotton-like, trichome strands are tinted with a shade of light-orange from the pistils blended within them.

Alien Moon Pie has an earthy odor, smelling like pine and basil, with a hint of citrus.The flavor is similar, and even offers a tangy grapefruit aftertaste.

Despite the indica dominance of Alien Moon Pie, many users are reporting a stimulating cerebral euphoria.Even more however, say they experience relief from chronic pain and tension related disorders such as menstrual cramps, migraines, spasming, and anxiety.The dominant terpene by far is Beta Myrcene, with supporting amounts of Limonene and Alpha Pinene.Many believe this unique terpene synergy has a sedative effect on the body’s nervous system, and works as a powerful anti-inflammatory.This has led to remarkable reductions in chronic pain by some users’ reports.Many say the sedative effect seems to cross over to the mind, suggesting they found relief from anxiety and depression.

Just be careful not to eat yourself into a food coma, as Alien Moon Pie reportedly has the capacity to lead to some ravenous munchies.
