Blueberry Kush

Blueberry Kush is a 100% pure Cannabis indica strain (cultivar), and it is a hybrid made by crossing Blueberry and OG Kush strains together. With its considerably high THC content, Blueberry Kush gives its users a relaxing and sedative high.

Initially bred in Oregon, USA, Blueberry Kush has become increasingly popular throughout the United States. This is likely due to the award-winning success and popularity of the parent strains. For example, Blueberry won the 2000 High Times Cannabis Cup for Best Indica. OG Kush is a common and versatile strain found in many hybrids.

Blueberry Kush has sweet, fruity, earthy, and herb flavors due to the three primary terpenes present in the plant. It also has a pleasant aroma of fresh blueberries that reportedly doesn’t cause coughing.

The sticky resin produced by the trichomes causes the white color on the leaves of the Blueberry Kush strain. The buds of the plant can be purple, red, or blue.

Growing

growing strains

Blueberry Kush is a high-maintenance plant, so it may be more challenging to grow than other cannabis strains. This is because of its particular feeding schedule and the sensitivity of the plant to its environment. It is recommended for experienced cultivators who have the time to closely monitor the plant and provide it with nitrogen and CalMag fertilizers.

Blueberry Kush can be grown indoors or outdoors, ensuring it gets lots of sunshine and light. If you grow Blueberry Kush indoors, it’s recommended to use a hydroponics setup. This method involves suspending the plant’s roots in a solution of water and nutrients instead of the traditional way of using soil. For picky plants, it allows you to monitor the nutrients you feed them.

In terms of yield, when Blueberry Kush is grown indoors, it produces around 7 ounces (198 grams) of bud per square meter. If you grow it outdoors, you can expect a significantly larger yield of up to 23 ounces (652 grams) of bud per square meter.

Height

Indica-dominant strains are usually short in height. This includes Blueberry Kush, which typically grows to around 40 inches (1.1 meters).
Blueberry Kush grows wide and rather tall. The downside of this is that some parts of the plant might not be able to get air. This can cause mold to grow. To prevent this, trim the plants time to expose more bushy parts of the plant to air.

Humidity and Temperature

Blueberry Kush grows best in a dry, mild climate.
It’s essential to keep the humidity to low levels. If the environment is too moist, the buds can grow mold on them.
The optimal humidity for growing Blueberry Kush depends on the stage of growth that it is in.
Seedling stage: Less than 70% humidity
Vegetative stage: Between 55% and 60% humidity
Flowering stage: Approximately 40% humidity
The optimal temperature for growing Blueberry Kush is between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (15 and 27 degrees Celsius).

Flowering

Blueberry Kush plants generally take between eight and 10 weeks to flower.
If grown outside, you can expect your Blueberry Kush plant to be ready to harvest between the end of September and November in the Northern hemisphere.
