Bio Diesel

Bio Diesel is a balanced hybrid strain bred on the farm of Denver Relief in Colorado. Bio Diesel is a four-way cross between Sour Diesel, Original Diesel, NYC Diesel, and Sensi Star. This hybrid won the 2nd Annual Colorado Medicinal Marijuana Harvest Cup in 2009. It’s an evenly balanced hybrid strain with 50% indica, 50% sativa, and a THC content of 17%-22%.

Bio Diesel combines sativa and indica strains (cultivars), producing an intense euphoric high that eases into a relaxed state. These balanced effects may help alleviate symptoms of conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, and inflammation.

True to its diesel-heavy lineage, Biodiesel has a pungent diesel-chemical flavor and potent stench with woody and spicy notes.

Growing

growing strains

Bio Diesel is a deep olive color with purple hues. It produces fluffy, dense buds.

This variety may not be suitable for beginner growers as it can be challenging to grow. Unfortunately, Bio Diesel seeds are unavailable — the cannabis variety must be grown from cuttings.

There is also little consensus on the best growing conditions for Bio Diesel.

This variety is potentially susceptible to fungus. It is essential to control the humidity and apply natural fungicides such as citric acid. Inoculating the root zone with beneficial mycorrhizae is recommended to support the plant’s growth and biological defense systems.

This plant can reach over 6 feet tall, so topping it is essential if growing indoors. This variety may benefit from training methods such as “screen of green” (SCROG). The SCROG method involves topping the plants in the early vegetative stage (removing the apical or center stem).

This encourages the plant to produce more side shoots, eventually becoming colas (flowers). Once topped, the branches of the plants are gently weaved through support (usually a horizontal trellis) to maximize the amount of light reaching each potential bud site.

Height

Bio Diesel can reach over 6 feet tall. They should be managed through topping and training to prevent apical dominance and help increase your yield.

Humidity and Temperature

While there is little specific information on ideal environmental conditions for Bio Diesel, a general cannabis guideline can be followed. Keep the relative humidity between 40%-60% in the vegetative phase, and drop it to 30%-40% during flowering to prevent molds such as bud rot from taking hold. Temperatures should stay between 70-80 F (21-26 C).

Flowering

Bio Diesel takes between nine to 11 weeks to complete flowering.
