Growing Blackberry Kush Strain
Blackberry kush strain can be grown both indoors or outdoors. However, it is recommended to grow indoors for optimized settings. It is harder to control climates and other factors when you are growing them outdoors.
The plants are naturally resistant to mildew and molds but prone to spider mites and fungus. The growing difficulty of blackberry kush is moderate, so it is ideal for novice growers since it produces high yield and requires less maintenance.
It is a lot easier growing this strain indoors. It takes about 7-9 weeks to flower and yields between 14 to 18 ounces per square meter.
While growing it indoors, make sure the humidity in your grow room does not go higher than 60% during the vegetative state and gradually reduces it each week to reach the humidity level 40% by the time your flowers are blooming. If the humidity remains too high, your plants will take in fewer nutrients, which can lead to a variety of deficiencies.
You will also need to feed your plant lots of nutrients for maximum potential. Make sure you monitor its magnesium intake and give it plenty of nitrogen during the vegetation stage.
The plant gives a better yield if grown outdoors. But it prefers a low humidity and mild to warm climate that is about 68 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
At outdoors, the flowers are ready for harvest from the last week of September to mid-October and yields between 17 to 25 ounces per plant.
If the plants are trimmed regularly and grown in an optimized setting, they flourish and give a great reward.
