- Whether the area you live in has a Mediterranean climate or is characterised by harsh temperatures unfavourable for cultivation, or even if you grow in a small space indoors, this strain by Dinafem will allow you to obtain top-quality cannabis in a fast and easy way.
- Resistant as they come and with a unique flavour inherited from her predecessors, Blue Kush Auto will definitely gain a foothold in your collection of resistant, versatile marijuana seeds.
If you like intensely flavoured cannabis and enjoy seeing your marijuana plants take on amazing colours, then Blue Kush Autoflowering is a must-have for all your grows. With more and more Kush strains available in the market, finding the one that really allows you to enjoy both the growing process and the end result is not always an easy task. Now, with this cannabis seed, Dinafem has done it again.
The cross of an Auto Blueberry and an OG Kush Autoflowering has resulted in a strain that preserves the traits of her predecessors in terms of quality and of the flavour of the buds, but complemented with the speed typical of autoflowering seeds as well as with the ability to adapt to all sorts of weather conditions, which makes her a really easy to grow plant.
This auto version of Blue Kush stands out for her resistance, for the speed at which her buds sprout and for her vigorous development during her short vegetative phase which, together with the genetics of her mother OG Kush Auto, makes her grow considerably taller than other autoflowering strains. Not to mention her unique fruity flavour, her intense aroma and her potent effect, which she also owes to her predecessors. Plus, if temperatures are cold at the end of flowering, the plant tends to take on hues of red and purple.
Why does marijuana take on these colours?
The answer is in the anthocyanins, a group of water-soluble pigments that are present in plant cells and that belong to the flavonoid group, which can also be found in wine and tea. These molecules are present in all the parts of the cannabis plant, as well as in many other plants, including the leaves, the stems, the flowers, the fruits and even the roots. The pigment intensity depends on their concentration, which varies from strain to strain and is determined by the genotype.
In cannabis plants that do take on blue or purple colours, the transformation is triggered by a decrease in light hours. This lack of light activates the flowering phase while reducing chlorophyll production - the pigment that gives vegetables their green colour - and thus, chlorophyll and green shades, predominant at the beginning of the season, fade into the background, giving way to anthocyanins and to purplish and blueish hues. If the anthocyanin concentration is low but still noticeable, the pigments may also result in orangey and golden hues.
Years ago, when the only purple cannabis strains were cultivated outdoors, exposing them to cold temperatures was key to triggering the change in colour and accentuate it, as this increased anthocyanin production. The link between the decrease in temperature and the higher anthocyanin concentration is not entirely clear, although the stress caused by the cold temperatures is believed to activate the expression of genes that would otherwise be blocked.
Overfeeding, your worst enemy
But above and beyond her amazing flowering, Dinafem's Blue Kush Auto is an extremely easy to grow strain. She grows vigorously both indoors and outdoors, producing an amazing crop considering her autoflowering nature. That said, there is one very important point that shouldn't be overlooked: if you overfeed her, you might have to pay dearly for it.
As important as the recommendation to mix a third of coco coir in the substrate to promote aeration is using fertilizers the right way. Ideally, start with small doses and increase them as flowering progresses. Overwatering is also to be avoided. Instead, water sparingly but at more frequent intervals. Following these simple guidelines will allow you to make the most of Blue Kush Auto.
Good things come to those who wait
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when growing autoflowering cannabis is harvesting too early. In fact, if you don't wait long enough you may well ruin two months' work and dedication. If you want to prevent this when growing Blue Kush Autoflowering indoors (9 plants per square meter with a 600 watt lamp, for instance), don't give in to impatience even if the buds seem compact and covered in resin and hang on until day 75 from germination, when they reach optimum ripeness.
And the same applies to outdoor growing. Patience, dedication and a good substrate somewhere sunny is all you need to obtain vigorous plants of up to 1.5 metres in height that will be producing 50 -170 grams of top-quality marijuana (dry weight). And, as already pointed out, this seed by Dinafem has the ability to adapt to complicated weather and still perform effectively.
Irresistible hints of fresh fruit and oil
In case you needed further reason to give into Blue Kush Autoflowering, her unique flavour and aroma are here to help. Blueberry's influence is clearly there, as sweet and fruity as always, perfectly complemented by the earthy aroma so typical of OG Kush and the oily undertone that characterizes the Diesel family.
All of which is washed down with a long-lasting, physical and cerebral effect that allows you to forget about the stress of your daily routine while enjoying a chat with your friends and acquittances. The effect is so potent that you won't believe you just smoked an auto. Again, this strain will surprise you in every way possible.
