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.

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.
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
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 !!
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 !!
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.
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.
Eine günstigere und stärkere alternative ist die Strawberry Blue von World of Seeds.
UDZR1 – 23.03.2013
This strain is great. Smoke report below.
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)
Complete couchlock. Very heavy body stone. Fruity taste.
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)
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.
