lemur108 – 09.02.2020
In 2013 I bought 3 seeds and got an incredible result – all 3 plants were amazing and produced a big yield of the highest class: psychedelic, intense and deep.
In 2019 I decided to try it one more time. The result is a disaster. I’ve got completely different plants with a very small yield. The high is very primitive, not interesting and very weak. Probably, it was the worse crop I ever had. It’s a low-class grass, totally not recommended.
Unfortunately, it loks like HSO is losing it’s positions. Other growers also report dissatisfaction with some other strain. Currently i’m germinating 3 seeds of other HSO strains, and all of them weak.
i think it’s time to move further. Goodbye, HSO!
MisterX – 04.12.2018
4 years ago i got 1 good pheno out of 10 seed.
Its really usable and i wanted to repeat this result. Since 3 years and 40 seeds later i didnt get out one single usable Plant. Most look like on my liked photos or just dont produce enough resin. I grow them unter 1000w Dimlux lights with a automated Pro-Leaf water cooled Aircon system and a CO2 burner.
Several other Genetics like Amnesia, Cream Caramel, L.S.D performed very very well in the same run/room.
I dont know what they did with the mother plants this 40 seeds have 00000 in common with the other 10 seeds 4 years ago. Maybe they mixed the seeds and put other in the Blue Dream glasstube.
And they even didnt care to answer my well written letter.
I will not repeat trying to find a good Blue Dream genetic.
Just a waist of resources and time.
Richfield – 24.07.2017
Die Blue Dream wuchs (innen) Hybrid lastig (normal groß, breit, mit mitlleren Blättern). Die
Blüte-stände waren überdurchschnittlich mit Harz überzogen. Die Sorte wuchs in der
vegetativen Phase normal schnell. Der Strech war enorm hoch !!
Der Ertrag war ebensfalls sehr hoch. Gerade in den letzten Wochen hat die Sorte
nochmal richtig zugelegt. Die Qualität, der Blütenstände war sehr überdurchschnittlich !!
Die Sorte reagierte gut aufs Toppen und hatte an den eher wenigen aber langen
Seitentrieben sehr große und kompakte Blüten. Das Verhältnis zwischen Blüten und
Blatt-Masse sehr gut !!
Die Sorte konnte durchschnittlich gut manikürt werden. Die Sorte benötigte aber
mindestens 9-10 Wochen um ernte reif zu sein !! Auf Grund der stark verzögerten
Blütenausbildung kann ich mir nicht vorstellen, dass man die Sorte auch
draußen (in Deutschland) anbauen kann.
Nach dem Trocken und dem Zerkleinern, habe die Blüten dann stark scharf
und nur leicht süßlich gerochen. Der Rauch war mild und sehr angenehm.
Den typisch fruchtigen Geruch einer Blueberry konnte ich leider kaum
Insgesamt war der Effekt eher sativa lastig und sehr stark.
Anfänger kann ich die Sorte daher eher weniger empfehlen.
Erstaunlicherweise war die Wirkungsdauer sehr lang und lag bei
ca 4 – 5 stunden. Der Rausch hatte zum einen sehr positive
und zum anderen auch sehr negative Seiten.
In den ersten 15 minuten ist man leicht entspannt. Danach kommt
eine Phase in der man sehr pychedelisch überdreht ist. In dieser
Phase muss man sich bewegen und ist dabei aber sehr unruhig und nervös.
Diese unruhigen phasen kenne bis jetzt nur von Haze Sorten.
Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass ungeübte Raucher hier schnell
Paranoia bekommen können. Nach dem energetischen Zustand bekommt
man schnell hunger und muss sich entspannen. Während des
gesamten Rausches ist man jedoch sehr verwirrt und weniger klar
Medizinisch gesehen würde ich Sorte gegen Müdigkeit und
Antriebslosigkeit empfehlen, aber eher weniger bei Depressionen.
Der Effekt hat mich insgesamt sehr stark an Critical+(dinafem) erinnert.
Die Blue Dream war eine sehr gut wüchsige Hybrid Sorte mit einem sehr hohen Ertrag.
Die Blütenstände waren überdurchschnittlich mit Harz überzogen. Der Effekt
ein energetisches und pychedelisches High war sehr stark und überwiegend
sativa lastig. Wer auf Haze Sorten steht und dabei weniger als 10 wochen warten
will, kann ich Sorte empfehlen. Die Wirkungsdauer war insgesamt sehr lange !
RogerRamjet – 28.06.2017
Had 2 distinct phenos from my beans – short, fast flowering Blueberry pheno and stretchy, slower Hazey pheno. Was stoked to get this Sativa pheno. Grew them both out twice before killing off the Indica leaning pheno.
The keeper is a 10 week strain, super high yield and nice happy, uplifting high, even gives you the giggles. It is a bit finicky with both environment and nutrients. I have found it can be fed regularly up until about half way through flowering when I need to back off the nutes.
After the stretch finally finishes the buds start to fill out, and out and out until its like night of the triffids in there. Some foxtailing which does effect the density of the buds but for a Sativa dominant strain its to be expected. Great production strain and enjoyable smoke.
LittleTruths – 09.03.2017
Absolutely horrible, just like any other HSO strain I ran.Garbage, garbage, garbage.
Ran this and other HSO strains (Green Crack, Pineapple Skunk) for the third time and even selecting the best phenos didn’t hold the comparison with just about any other seedbank strains.
I came to the conclusion that it is better to get Gonorrhoea than to get Humboldt seeds. because while Gonorrhoea is a problem you can solve with some antibiotics and a week or two, Humboldt seeds are a problem that will take you months to get rid of.
I am never buying another one of these expensive bird food items ever again in my life.
BigNose – 27.02.2017
In my experience. this is no longer a good strain from HSO.I originally grew this strain in late 2013 and again in early 2014 and both packs produced very uniform plants with an amazing structure and great yield.The end result was a perfect balance of it’s Haze and Blueberry parents with amazing flavours with a great high.This is still in my Top 5 of all time strains I have grown and smoked from Fem seeds.However, I have since run another 3 full packs (bought separately) and they have all consistently produced low yielding, bland flavour and musky smelling indica plants with NO hint of haze any more.I have emailed HSO a few times and asked whether the parents have changed over the years or whether it’s just (very) bad luck, but have never had a response.I will now assume that something HAS changed and will not waste any more time or money trying to find the Original Blue Dream from a few years ago. what a shame HSO, these used to be the one of the best Fem Hybrids on the market!
LittleTruths – 16.07.2016
Based on other reports/info I expected this to be a fairly vigorous hybrid with a fair share of sativa traits and interesting colors/smells/taste.
Decided to give it a try and germinated 5 feminized seeds.
All 5 popped and the seedlings started off nice and vigorous, but soon showed very fat leaves, sign of an indica-dominant plant.
Very homogenous strain; all five plants looked pretty much alike, with short internodes, bushy structure and dark, fat leaves.
Two out of five smelled expecially sweet-fruity and delicious, but then again they were pure Blueberry traits, nothing much different.
Also, just like Blueberry, the plants were not difficult to grow but still quite finicky as they would be the only ones in a variegated garden to occasionally signal any deficiencies.
All in all not impressed at all with this strain; it does have some pretty lovely characteristics but nothing more and nothing different than a Blueberry.In fact, it prompted be to grow actual Blueberry next time around.
Kept clones of the two sweetest smelling ones and will try and run them again with a longer veg to see if something more can be pulled out of them.
I’ve seen some pretty decent phenos grown by other people but frankly looked nothing like mines.
I might have been expecially unlucky and got five indica-leaning phenos out of a five-beans pack but there is that.
alexQC – 05.01.2016
Nice strain but not the biggest harvest out of 6 strains I would say this one came in last for me both for the yield and overall appreciation of the buds. Nice blueberry smell but it is combined with a very piny after tone/taste that I dislike but still a nice plant. I only had one seed so it may not be a good representation of the genes. It handeled a rich soil well.
marctie – 06.11.2015
I`ve been growing og kush,bubba kush, sour blueberry,pineapple skunk and the trainwreck from HSO and I was always happy about The result I had,everytime! Never had bugs or problems Even during an Hot Summer when I was growing the pineapple with more than 30°c in The growbox! But Blue Dream is completely insane! Grows fast and strong and produces very very fat buds lot of resin! Blue dream gave me a super harvest of defenetly top quality weed!I suggest this to every grower
Asher – 13.10.2015
This strain is insane. Let me start out by saying I have been growing outdoors for more than ten years, and never have I seen such vigorous growth from any plant when started indoors, nor such large buds on any other outdoor plant I have seen, either mine or my friend’s. And I ordered seeds that were supposed to be “big bud” on a few occasions.
I ordered just two seeds, both were a different phenotype. The first, the one I kept as a clone, had the thickest, biggest second nodal leaves I have ever seen. They were as big as my hand almost! The stem got thick really early on. I kept it under the lamps for two months and topped it constantly, then placed it outdoor on 11. of May. For the first month, the growth was nice, I was extremely happy with the progress. I had placed it in 140L of fresh soil, added charcoal from a burned fireplace (all plants love that Carbon!) and used nutrients with slow release. And then the plant took off. Quite literally. It grew into a monster whose thirst was almost impossible to quench in the hot parts of the summer. Waterings were necessary at least every third day, and I had to use 6 – 10 liters of water, although it could have easily gone for way more. While the Moby Dick growing next to it could go for up to 5 days or more and didn’t show signs of “omg feed me or I will wither and die.” As you can imagine, this can be a problem if you’re growing guerilla.
It loves Nitrogen. I used 25-5-5 and it ate it all without a single sign of nutrient deficiency or burn. Since it was very hot, however, it began taking water from the lower leaves and shedding some in the process during the last part of July and beginning of August. This was in no way problematic and in fact better, since the plant grew to about 2m in height and about the same in circumference and had a fuckton of foliage.
This “keeper” I assume was a 50/50 mix between haze/blueberry since at no point was I able to decide if it was more indica or sativa, not even in flowering.
The other, more sativa pheno, is characterized, it seems, by having an intense smell when you rub the leaves, some kind of minty/lemon, while the 50/50 mix did not have much of a smell when the leaves were rubbed between the fingers. You really cannot miss the sativa pheno, simply because of the smelly leaves. They smell very good, too.
When flowering began, the 50/50 mix showed more signs of thickness than the sativa, although the sativa FILELD UP. Both gave extremely good yields, although the 50/50 seemed to have those really FAT buds that can topple a plant and make it hug the ground more easily. Although the motherplant of the sativa pheno did that as well, which makes me think you really can’t go wrong with either of the phenotypes.
At one point the wind broke one of the branches, so it is advisable to invest in a net or something that may support the hugeness of the plant during heavy winds.
The smell of the buds is very sour and slightly fruity, and the thrichome coverage is just amazing. The high is just as advertised. Intense, euphoric, and if done excessively, ass-kicking and will put you down to ponder the mysteries of life and all things therein.
rickster – 14.03.2015
Bullet-proof plant with large, compact buds nearly solid the length of the branch. incredible resin count, aroma, flavor and bag appeal–personal use or commercial, consider growing this strain.
Countryboy76 – 05.01.2014
Very tasty strain strong plants defiantly shows the blueberry in her breeding only had one seed and cloned many many from there chosen out of about 7 different strains side by side very nice

8 Tips for Growing Blue Dream Cannabis: Grower’s Guide
Grow like a pro!
Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant (60%) hybrid with a THC content between 17% and 24%, along with a CBD level of 2%. It is one of the most famous marijuana strains to come out of California and is renowned for being among the best daytime smokes. Blue Dream is a cross of Super Silver Haze and a Blueberry Indica, and once you’ve tried it, you will adore the total body relaxation that it offers.
Now that weed is legal for recreational use in California, residents are flooding to dispensaries in search of Blue Dream. Its popularity is partly because of its delightful aroma, taste, and effects, but also because of its relatively widespread availability.
Although you can pick up a gram of it for $4-5 in Portland, Oregon, expect to pay up to $16 per gram in Los Angeles. If you would prefer to grow your own Blue Dream, on the other hand, keep reading this guide as we offer eight useful tips for cultivating this invigorating strain.
1 – Blue Dream Grows Best Indoors
If you live in California – or a similar climate – Blue Dream is relatively easy to grow outdoors. However, everything changes if you live in an area with changeable weather conditions, because Blue Dream is sensitive to extreme changes in the climate. In other words, plan on growing Blue Dream indoors unless you live in a subtropical or Mediterranean climate.
The main issue you’ll have when growing Blue Dream indoors, however, is the height of the plant. It tends to grow into something of a monster! It isn’t unusual for a Blue Dream plant to reach the six-foot mark, in fact, without a great deal of effort.
There is something intensely satisfying though about cultivating a marijuana plant that’s taller than you are!
Regardless, when you grow indoors, try and make sure that you keep the plant straight and support the branches. The process of ‘staking’ is one of the best ways to achieve this. As Blue Dream is a tall and dense plant, it is crucial to stake it, or else the plants will lean or even fall over from the main trunk. Most growers use metal stakes in different lengths with a loop at the end to hook the branches.
Hook one of the stakes to the midway point of the Blue Dream plant’s main trunk, and make sure you position it in an upright position. Within 30 days, you’ll have to transfer your plant to a larger container; a 5-gallon pot should suffice. Make sure you place the Blue Dream in a room large enough to contain it; remember, it becomes very tall! It is also necessary to check and prune the plants at regular intervals.
2 – Keeping Pests at Bay
Unfortunately, pests are a significant issue if you elect to grow Blue Dream outdoors. They can ruin hundreds of hours’ worth of labor and destroy thousands of dollars’ worth of crops. Worst of all, there are some pests capable of doing significant damage in as little as 15 minutes. The biggest dangers, depending on where you live, include rabbits, deer, and raccoons. Then there is the small matter of red spider mites, sun damage, fungi, viruses, and much more.
You can opt for a store-bought remedy such as a 3-in-1 spray, which contains miticide, fungicide, and insecticide. It works best when used during the vegetative phase. There are unique products for plants that have reached the flowering stage. If you browse online, you will find a host of remarkable home remedies, although some are far more effective than others.
One solution involves growing tobacco and using it in a spray as an insecticide. If red spider mites are a problem and you don’t want to use a chemical spray, try an all-natural solution by introducing a predator. Ladybugs feast on red spider mites, but will leave your weed alone. If you have a large outdoor grow, you can also invest in a couple of zappers that should take care of any flying pests.
If you like gardening, consider growing a ‘companion’ plant. These are plants that naturally repel pests. Examples include marigolds and geraniums that work like a charm to ensure worms and leaf-eating insects stay away. Basil offers a gorgeous smell, and its strong scent works well to keep flies, aphids, and beetles away. Garlic is a natural fungicide that protects your cannabis from disease. While humans usually love the smell of mint, a significant proportion of garden pests hate it!
3 – Ensure Your Blue Dream Gets a Ton of Nutrients, Especially Nitrogen
We have a warning for anyone who wants to grow Blue Dream – be prepared to invest a lot of money in nutrients because this marijuana strain is notorious for its ravenous appetite. One technique used by advanced growers is the addition of mycorrhizae to the seeds. This fungus attaches to a plant’s roots and mines for nutrients.
It feeds your plant and, in return, the Blue Dream provides sugar and other carbohydrates. Another tip involves watering the plants during the vegetative stage using liquid seaweed and molasses mixed with reverse osmosis (RO) water.
In general, marijuana plants require fewer nutrients than commonly grown household plants such as tomatoes. If you elect to grow your Blue Dream in soil, you’ll need to invest in nutrients made explicitly for it. If you use high-quality soil, to begin with, though, you’ll need far fewer nutrients. If you decide to grow in a different medium, purchase hydroponic nutrients.
As is the case with all marijuana plants, Blue Dream needs nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sulfur, with the first three nutrients classified as the most important. Other useful additions include copper, boron, cobalt, silicon, manganese, iron, and zinc.
Usually, you would decrease a marijuana plant’s nitrogen level as it moves from the vegetative phase into flowering. However, while most strains will suffer if you continue adding too much nitrogen, Blue Dream thrives because it can consume large amounts of it without burning.
4 – Maintaining the Right pH Level
Having the right level of nutrients available isn’t enough; you also have to ensure that the root environment’s pH is correct to ensure your plants can absorb the nutrients fully. The simplest way to maintain the ideal pH level is to test your water’s pH after adding the nutrients. Failure to test for pH means your marijuana plants could suffer from nutrient deficiencies.
Overall, the best pH when growing Blue Dream marijuana is between 6.0 and 7.0. If you use a hydroponic system, the range drops a little to 5.5 – 6.5. It’s essential to have a small range because different nutrients are absorbed in various pH levels. There are specialized solutions available in stores that help you adjust your growing medium’s pH up or down as necessary. One of the best combinations is imaginatively called “PH Down” or “PH Up.”
If you need the pH to fall by 1.0, use 1ml of PH Down per gallon of water. In contrast, the PH Up solution is nowhere near as powerful because you need to add 2-4 ml per gallon of water to increase the pH level by just 1.0.
If you are adjusting the pH for the first time, use a smaller amount than outlined above and slowly work your way to the right level.
Poor quality water affects your cannabis plant in a variety of ways. If the water you use to feed the plant has the wrong pH level, it will limit the plant’s ability to transport carbohydrates and nutrients. You have an advantage if using soil as your growth medium because the colonies of microorganisms that form in organic growing mediums act as filters and buffers, ensuring the pH remains between 6.5 and 7.0.
5 – Temperature & Humidity Settings
In basic terms, humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air, and it plays a crucial role in determining the level of evaporation in marijuana plants. When humidity levels are low, your plants take in more water and nutrition. Like all weed plants, the humidity and temperature requirements for Blue Dream change as it moves through its growth cycle.
In the vegetative stage, Blue Dream needs a high level of humidity, but it requires far less as it moves through the flowering stage. There is a clear relationship between humidity and temperature which all marijuana growers must understand. The percentage of absorbable water is dictated by the temperature.
For instance, air takes in 7.2 ml of water at a temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit and 100% humidity. At 32 degrees, the air takes in 5 ml of water, which explains why the air feels ‘drier’ during the hot months.
As seedlings, make sure you keep the Blue Dream strain in a temperature range of 72 – 78 degrees and a humidity range of 30-50%. You can slightly increase the humidity to around 55% after a few weeks, but this is still below the 70% humidity level recommended for other strains at the beginning of the vegetative stage.
By the time you reach flowering, begin to lower the humidity level by 5% per week until it is in the 30-40% range. Blue Dream thrives in warmer conditions, so bump the temperature up to around 80-85 degrees during the flowering stage. When growing indoors, you can adjust the humidity level in a variety of ways. A humidifier is the easiest option for increasing humidity, and a dehumidifier is the best way to lower the level.
6 – Adding the Correct Lighting
This is a tip specifically for indoor growers. Lighting is an essential element of marijuana growth, as it makes a substantial difference in the quality and quantity of the crop. If you are growing Blue Dream outdoors in the right climate, you should have no concerns. Just remember that it will flower in a subtropical or Mediterranean climate in October.
As an indoor grower, you can cultivate Blue Dream anytime as long as you have the right temperature, humidity, and light settings in your grow room. New growers often forget that it’s the darkness that makes all the difference in a plant’s growth cycle. The length of time that you expose Blue Dream to complete darkness will dictate when it transitions from vegetative to flowering stage.
As a rule of thumb, your Blue Dream seedlings should receive 16-24 hours of light, and clones need 18-24 hours a day. During the vegetative stage, make sure your plants are on an 18-6 light schedule, which changes to 12-12 during flowering. Your Blue Dream plants will not start to flower until you routinely expose them to the 12 hours of light, 12 hours of dark schedule. At this point, they respond as if the fall season is about to come and enters the flowering stage.
If you don’t provide adequate light, your Blue Dream plants will begin stretching upwards in a desperate search for blue light. This results in slender plants that lead to a small harvest. As a result, we recommend using grow lights with a full spectrum of UV rays. Poor lighting choices include high-pressure sodium (HPS) lights, as they don’t have the correct level of blue light (they only possess a maximum of 4% – one-third of the minimum requirement of 12%).
7 – Wait 9-10 Weeks for Blue Dream to Flower Indoors
Assuming you are growing Blue Dream indoors, you’ll want to wait 9-10 weeks for it to flower if you want the best possible harvest. Once your seeds germinate, transfer them to a small pot with a suitable growing medium. Make sure you store them in a room with the correct humidity, temperature, and lighting levels.
Be careful not to overwater the plant in the early stages. You will know if you’re guilty of this mistake if the leaves turn a pale or yellowish color. If this happens, put a fan on them to stop water stagnation and carefully mist or lightly water the plants until their leaves return to a healthy color.
In most cases, your Blue Dream plant should be ready for the flowering stage after 8-9 weeks of total growth. As we mentioned in tip #6, you must change the light cycle so that you expose the plants to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of complete darkness. After a couple of weeks, the buds should begin to pop up.
After a month of flowering, you can expect THC-laden trichomes to start showing on the buds.
You will know that it’s time to harvest when at least 70% of the pistils have turned an orange or light brown color. If you wait too long, all of the pistils will change color, and this impacts the potency. You can err on the side of caution and only harvest when 50% of the pistils switch to the right color, but your Blue Dream nuggets won’t be as potent. It is a delicate balancing act, and will probably take a few growth cycles to get right.
8 – How to Harvest Blue Dream Marijuana
There is little difference in yield whether you grow Blue Dream indoors or outdoors. It is capable of producing an incredible 15-21 ounces per square meter indoors. We have heard of growers generating over 20 ounces per plant outdoors too. Based on L.A. prices, you are looking at up to $9,000 worth of Blue Dream if you dedicate an entire square meter to the plant.
Once your plants are ready to harvest, it is time to cut them down. Please remember that Blue Dream is a tall and large plant, which means it is likely to be extremely bushy. As a result, you’ll probably have to spend a significant amount of time trimming it before the drying and curing processes.
If you’re in a rush to enjoy the fruits of your labor, you can dry and cure Blue Dream for a much shorter period than with many other strains. It is not unusual to spend just eight days drying and seven days curing. Admittedly, you will enjoy a much stronger, more flavorful experience if you wait a few weeks, but you’ll still enjoy the relaxing yet energizing effect, which ultimately transitions into euphoria.
