    First time sativa/soil grow...is this normal? blue dream info?!?!

    I have several years of growing under my belt. I always used the same method... highly commercial/yielding strains grown in hydro. upon moving to cali I thought i would pick up a sativa from a bank. The bank recommended Blue Dream.... very high yield sativa. It came in soil so i left it in soil. the plant is 5months old (extreamly slow veg period) and in its 7th week of bloom. I know that sativas have a longer bloom cycle but the bank said it was 60 days... the plant is healthy and developing but the buds have no size and no density what so ever. Is this normal for a sativa.....or because of soil? or just blue dream? anyone had any experience with blue dream? thanks!

    Sorry.... Indoor/ 2 1000's/ ebb & flow. but the dream is in soil that i water twice a week/ co2 about 1000ppm. the dream is in a 5 gal bucket with a basic soil. Gets ph'd water twice a week or so.

    everything else in the room is normal for 7 weeks and looks healthy. the pistils have already started to turn amber on my other plants. the blue dream is still white and under developed for 7 weeks. Ill see if i can get some pics.

    it would be nice to know the genitic makeup of your sativa. if its a true sativa its going to take longer than 60 days like that seedbank said.

    if its really sativa the 'buds' will probably be airy and fluffy.....kinda like your describing...i say give it time and see how the trichs do

    LOL, thats an easy one! Im broke and rockwool is expensive. Those are 5 gal buckets, should be plenty of RW. I had so much money before I moved to cali, but things are f-ing expensive here. But Im not complaining...look what I can do!

    Doesnt look like blue dream to me. I got a room full of her and shes way more sativa looking than those. Giant fan leaves, mad trichs by the 3rd week. It may be that its in soil but that wouldnt change the way the leaves are. BD is a nice yielder in hydro.

    the last 2-3 weeks of flower are when the buds get fat. you just have to wait it out.

    hey purple kush - i'm a first time blue dream grower and have a question for a vet like you - when should I top the plants?
    I have 4 BDs 2 Sour Deisel plants, I've had them for 2 weeks, got them as clones. They're in a 4X4X6 foot indoor grow hut with a 600 mh light, can fan and oscilating fan, Botinacare nutrients.
    Since BD is such a slow grower (although mine are getting pretty big for 2 weeks) when should I top the plants? A week or two before going into flowering stage (12/12 hrs)?
    Thanks!
