newbies friend

By Herka Derka on March 13, 2019

I have grown this strain for years.
It gets tall and put out tons.
I would recommend this as a starter strain along with dream queen
but blue dream will yield more.
The high is manageable. Good for day time.
only bad thing I could say is it gets boring…

Typical Blue Dream which is great

By Bryce musante on January 21, 2019

It turned out to be just like how blue dream should be if you ask me. I don’t believe i got her to her very full potential as i had an A/C go out halfway through in summer.
I thought it would be okay to wait to replace but i believe i hindered her ability to really out produce. But she still did do amazing. Amazing flower, production, taste, size, density, bag appeal she had it all. Really easy to grow no issues from the plant what so ever a “dream”. Even with heat issue she didnt seem to really mind an amazing plant. This was the first strain I purchased from Dark Heart personally for my own grow and I already liked Dark Heart but after my first personal purchase I LOVE Dark Heart.

First Blue Dream grow

By Tyler on October 1, 2018

I had very good results with my first blue dream grow. Yes they were the tallest plants next to 5 other Dark Heart strains. They needed a lot more nitrogen than the other plants. I have not tasted my harvest from these yet as they’re still curing. I will say I disagree on this one being good for new growers. I had to adjust nutrient levels for this strain specifically where as the other plants were a lot less picky. They do get big and they might be a bit much for newbies to handle. Especially if you’re dealing with a 12-15 foot monster. I definitely wouldn’t try to grow this one indoor. The smell on the buds is incredible though.

Blue Dream – Outdoor Grow 2017 (Contra Costa Co.)

By Ed on August 28, 2017

Wow, this strain is a beast, I purchased at Harborside and was in the ground in April, fast forward to late August, a beautiful plant. It took aggressive topping and FIMing to keep her size down, counting my Bud sites, the yield will be huge come late October, I recommend this strain

Huge plants!

By Bobby on July 13, 2015

This strain grows enormous! We had 15′ tall plants outdoors last season. Very nice pheno of blue dream. Bright green and super frosty. Good plant for beginners, very easy to grow and yield is the most I have seen.

Growing Information

Yield: Heavy

Growing Tips: Strongest growth in hydroponics, but more robust flavor in soil. It tends to grow as a single cola unless trained.

To start outside earlier, use the Gas Lantern Method of providing additional light during the dark period.

Flavor: Classic haze with a tinge of floral berry.

Effects: Uplifting, cerebral, and energetic. Enjoy this bud outside in nature or use it to unwind after a long day. Patients appreciate the cerebral awareness followed by a calming body high. Good for an all-day remedy as its indica traits are not too overpowering.

Suggested Medical use: Best for treating aches and pains, depression, anxiety, nausea, cachexia, appetite loss, bi-polar disorder, and stress.
