This stuff is pretty amazing. The fastest from start to finish I have grown yet, 56 days or less. The colors don't disappoint either, the darkest purple, almost black, with bright orange hairs make it the most unique looking flower I have ever seen. I would have said this strain was easy to grow except that after all was said and done I realized I had probably stressed the plant and it didn't grow to it's full potential. The product I did get from her is definitely top shelf though, some of the most beautiful budz I have ever seen. The budz were dense and full of trichomes making them sticky and allowing for a slow dry and cure, about 4 weeks, which is almost perfect to bring out it's full flavor and smell. Blackberry smells and tastes just as the name suggests, sweet and berry flavored. Amazing. Once you smell it and taste it is like, of course, that what I was expecting. Mmmmmmmm. Then, it hits you! Thud! Take a seat until your head stops spinning and enjoy the ride. I love this stuff after dinner and I'm ready to relax before I do my midnight gardening. I definitely recommend growing it at least once. I may try it again but I was disappointed, the reason I gave it 8 of 10 stars, with the yield and it turned out the be an expensive plant to grow. This plant was the first of five (others not documented) seeds I grew and it happened to be the best one. I think I had 3 different phenotypes. Although it was grower error I had such bad results. I can grow other strains that are not so sensitive and give huge yields under the same conditions. No HST or defoliation because they finish very fast so you don't really want to stress 'em and stunt their growth. I had no issues with disease. Hope this helps. Peace

I use pH Adjust up and down. Works great, a few drops will do it.

Definitely worth a try if you are looking for some purple to grow. I will probably grow it again in the future after I try some other purple strains. I stressed these plants and didn't get the results I was hoping for. I started the seed in a one of those cups that's suppose to decompose after you place it in the soil, only the cup took longer to decompose than my automatic growing plant took to grow, slowing root formation and spread, stunting overall growth. I have found a better cup since then that is made from recycled paper and turns to pulp almost as soon as it gets wet and is placed in the pot. Most of the issues I had with Blackberry were self inflicted and I'm sure if I grow it again I would have better results. The biggest issue with the strain and why I gave it 8 stars was because I had 3 phenotypes out of 5 seeds. First one is the one you see here. Second, third and fourth were all the same and grew one main stem, 2 little branches with wispy loose flowers with a low calyx to leaf ratio. The fifth plant and 3rd pheno stayed fairly green with little purple coming through, while the others were almost black in color. The flower was denser and more like a bud. Overall, mixed results. Great product. Disappointing yields and consistency. Thanks for turning on and tuning in. All questions and comments are welcome. Peace

@Crazyweedpt, personality is a good word for it. She is one of a KIND for sure. She smells sweet, but will set you on your ass. She is a smooth toke tasting of sweet berries. The high is euphoric at first and then quickly plasters you to your seat. I have been saving it for nighttime use only.... LOL. Thanks for tuning in. Peace
