Even though the strain is known by almost everyone who deals with cannabis, the weed is not suitable for novice growers. The fact is that this Sativa has its whims, which absolutely must be fulfilled to obtain a quality harvest.
Let's start with a bit of warning that Sour Diesel is one of the leading carriers of latent hop viroid. Therefore, it is essential to use clean soil and check your plant periodically. It becomes hazardous to keep a diseased plant along with healthy bushes because the risk of infection is very high.
Heat and sun are essential for this plant, so it is worth providing the marijuana with constant sunlight. That being said, given the high growth of Sour Diesel, don't let the top of the plant get too close to the light sources, or else it can easily damage your cannabis. Remember that the last two weeks are the most decisive when it comes to harvesting, so the temperature should be below 80 degrees Fahrenheit, as high temperatures will erode all terpenes, reducing the strain of aroma and the desired effects. We recommend setting humidity levels below 60%. The too high humidity leads to mold and mildew, making the strain unusable.
Sour Diesel will be in dire need of water quite often as it produces a lot of foliage. Like any cannabis, the strain requires fertilization. However, it is essential not to overdo it with nutrients. Otherwise, the buds will grow too large and inferior. It is crucial to monitor the signals that the plant sends, and especially for potassium and nitrogen. This Sativa blooms for at least ten weeks, and the plant's yield can reach approximately one gram per watt.
