Also known as Berry Blue, this Indica-hybrid was bred by crossing Purple Thai and Thai together in the early 1970s. The long history of the strain starts with the American breeder DJ Short, as he was working with a copious amount of exotic landrace strains. Through the eras, the cultivation of Blueberry’s genetics has been passed around by DJ Short as he continues to work with various breeders and seedbanks.
As a plant that does exceptionally well outdoors, the resilience against the cold and humidity circles back to its origin in the Afghani mountains. Be sure to have your soil packed with nutrients because your Blueberry plants will be graciously using those nutrients right away.
As with many Indica strains, Blueberry benefits from some early topping to promote a more horizontal growth pattern and heighten your yield. If you do indeed do this, please ensure that you’re also occasionally pruning off the very interior stems and branches caused by lateral growth and will produce mildew.
The flowering time for an indoor Blueberry plant is approximately nine weeks. You can prepare for harvest around mid-October if grown outdoors. Indoors, Blueberry can yield up to 18 ounces per square meter. However, when grown outdoors, cultivators can expect a yield of up to 25 ounces per plant.
