Sour Diesel is an extremely popular, dominant sativa cannabis strain that’s well-known for its strong aroma and uplifting effects. It can be difficult to grow Sour Diesel, but it is possible with the correct techniques. You can get a great yield of premium buds. We will be discussing the most effective methods to cultivate Sour Diesel cannabis. Pick the Best Growing Medium It is essential to choose the correct growing medium for Sour Diesel. Soil, hydroponics, coco coir are the most popular growing media. Each medium is different and has advantages and disadvantages. While soil may be the most affordable and traditional option, controlling the pH can be difficult. However, hydroponics and coco-coir allow for better control over pH and nutrition intake. They are also more expensive and need more maintenance. Provide Adequate Lighting Growing cannabis plants requires good lighting. For Sour Diesel to grow dense, healthy plants, it needs high levels light. You should have at least 600Wh of high-intensity lighting (HID), per square meter for indoor cultivation. An alternative is LED lighting, which emits less heat and is energy-efficient. A consistent lighting schedule is important. You need to have 18 hours light during vegetative stages and six hours dark during flowering. Adjust the Humidity and Temperature A warm and humid environment is ideal for Sour Diesel cannabis. Sour Diesel grows best at 20 to 28degC (68-82degF), and 18-24degC (64-67degF) at night. For the vegetative stage, the humidity level should be between 50-70% (68-82degF) and 40-50% for the flowering stage. The risk of mold and mildew can be increased by high humidity. However, plants can dry out if they are exposed to low levels of humidity. Pruning, Training and Techniques The yield and quality can be significantly improved by using pruning and other training methods. Topping refers to the process of removing the top part of the main stem. It promotes lateral growth and allows for multiple colas. Fimming can be described as a similar method that requires cutting off part of the main stem. This creates four main stems. Low-stress Training (LST) also involves the tying of branches in order to provide better light penetration and create a more uniform canopy. Nutrient Management The Sour Diesel cannabis strain needs to be fed with a healthy diet. To promote leaf growth, plants in the vegetative stage require more nitrogen. To promote the growth of buds, plants will need more potassium and phosphorus during the flowering stage. You must monitor the pH of your nutrient solution in order to make sure that plants absorb nutrients correctly. The cultivation of Sour Diesel marijuana strains can be rewarding if you have the right methods. A good growing medium is essential to ensure high quality Sour Diesel marijuana buds. You should also provide adequate lighting, control the temperature and humidity and use pruning and training techniques.
