Grape Kush was developed for indoor growing, but can flourish outdoors as well - even as far north as Holland - especially if given organic nutrients. Indoors, she prefers soil but adapts well to hydroponic systems, too. In general, DJ Short recommends light feeding with nitrogen and organic nutrients; however, Grape Kush loves all of the good worm castings and bat guano she can get.
Grape Kush branches bushy, especially when topped. Like her Blueberry relatives, she is dark green to purple with lavender/red hues. She has thicker and more variegated leaves than the other Blueberries. The larger calyxes on her bulkier, more "rounded" buds show a distinctive fox-tailing structure late in her flowering cycle. Her variegated leaves sometimes curl or "krinkle"; this is an expression of anomalous recessd traits from her diverse ancestors, not a mutation that indicates an unhealthy plant.
Grape Kush finishes in approximately 8-9 weeks indoors, or from late September to mid-late October outdoors. She is medium in height and heavy in yield - 25 to 50 grams per square foot at 50 watts per square foot, or up to 1 gram per watt under optimal conditions.
Growing plants have a strong odor, both sweet and musky.The harvest from this strain is connoisseur-grad ebud with a sweetish smoke. The high comes on very slowly, building up for as much as an hour, and then settles in for the night - a bit more like a pot brownie stone than the usual smoker's rush. traces of haze in the stone add inspiration to the conversation, and some radiant dreams or fantasies at bedtime. It's a relaxing and social effect, like red wine, and a good antidote to social anxiety.
