This plant produces monster colas but is susceptible to budrot. Buds on the fluffier side. Deep blueberry slushie smell while growing and a fruity/floral blueberry smell after dry and cure. Definitely an uplifting high.

Finally! After like 25 weeks of growing she is finished. Had to do a staggered harvest due to the Nor'easter and the budrot. Literally had to throw out like 3/4 of the plant which is a huge bummer. That being said, the colas that made it out okay are pretty nice. I had to harvest little by little, checking the colas every day for budrot. Ended up harvesting 3 separate times which was a pain in the ass. Spent an eon in trim jail trimming the colas on chop, then before budwash, then after dry. This grow definitely tested my patience as it was just consistent hours of work for little return. That being said, I ended up with 300g of decent flower from this huge ass plant. Definitely a disappointing yield for such a huge girl. I've learned alot from my first outdoor grow and hopefully I can also help you learn something as well if you're thinking about starting an outdoor grow. Don't grow monster plants unless your environment is perfect, your genetics are on point, and your beds are big enough. If your plants end up too big, they will likely get budrot in late flower if you get storms. If your plants grow too tall, they are susceptible to falling over (which happened to the Fire Purps). If your plants outgrow their beds, you'll get nutrient deficiencies. My plants were definitely a bit too big, especially the Fire Purps. Next grow I'm probably going to just direct sow into the soil at the beginning of June. For reference, I started these plants in the grow tent like 6 weeks before transplant which was a mistake. Despite all the issues and disappointing yield, the plant itself was vigorous and healthy (up until the nor'easter). I would totally recommend this plant for outdoor growing assuming you don't grow it too big and you don't live in a spot where you can get like 5 days of straight rain. It put off good frost and absolutely huge colas. The smell is also incredible. Glad to put this grow behind me and excited to do better next year!

Grow Questions

Gold1started grow question a year ago
It seems my Blue Dream has flowered prematurely after transplant outside. Cutting to the chase, what should I expect from this plant for the rest of the season? Will it reveg naturally and how long will it take to reveg? Should I be cutting off budsites? What do you think.

As Ez says. Your plant was triggered by lack of light. As transplant only really shocks autos into an early flip. (Not that you should, I'm just pointing out. Stress can cause early flip, but not with a fem) overcast or you're not getting enough light for 14hrs a day min is needed to keep a fem in veg. Say a few hrs she's blocked out by the sun for say 20m, (that won't be an Issue) as Photochrome takes 2hrs in a natural outdoor environment, as it does in a tent. That's the time it takes your plant to be fully out of umol to support a photosynthesis reaction.. so you're in the wrong time. Meaning you season was started to early?. Your outdoor lighting time as I said must be a constant 14+ hrs of good light. It might be a case of it revegging itself and finishing it as the natural pace. I see you've got it in a set bed. So, my guess. Is you are early. As its only coming into the long days where I live. Late April, for some is fine. Can be started, but you need to make sure by or coming into wk 3 that you are getting enough light. Or they'll flip.

Looks very healthy but I can see what youโ€™re saying about it being a pain. Iโ€™ve got some Blue Dream Fast seeds from Seedsman that I will try outdoor next year as an 8 or 16 manifold Manifolding is easy enough, all the work is up front, it makes nice uniform buds, and harvest is so much easier. Good luck.

@Gold1, oh, if it was revegged, would this be called monstercropping? That would explain it and yeah you wouldnโ€™t be trying to manifold in that scenario. Anyway, thanks and good luck.

@Northern_Ent, Yeah, she is a nightmare to deal with compared to the Fire Purps I'm growing next to her. Since the reveg, her stems grow short and its a pain to get in and work with her. I can just tell that she is going to have issues when she starts stacking buds. I've been trying to take branches off but it feels like no matter how much I take off there is still more :D. Hopefully it works out ๐Ÿ‘. Thanks for the good luck and good luck yourself my friend!

Nice big plant but bud rot sucks. You might want to try manifolding your outdoor photoperiods next time. Youโ€™ll end up with good airflow to avoid bud rot and nice uniform buds which really makes processing way easier at the end. Good comments and I agree that if you just let the plants do their thing it likely wonโ€™t work very well.
