Tips for growing NYC Diesel cannabis

Tips for Growing NYC Diesel Cannabis(digihelion/iStock)
This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.


Strain overview: NYC Diesel by Soma Seeds is a cross between Afghani and Mexican parent strains. A 60% sativa-dominant hybrid, NYC Diesel offers a euphoric high that energizes the mind while reducing stress and anxiety. Its flavor is that of a ruby-red grapefruit with hints of sour lime.

Grow techniques: Unless you have a warm fall climate, keep NYC Diesel indoors so this plant can finish on time. Healthy soil will allow this plant’s aroma to fully develop. Top the plants during the veg cycle to promote a full canopy of growth, and keep the lower portions of the plant pruned to direct efforts where they matter most.

Flowering time: 9-11 weeks

Yield: High

Grow difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Moisture and cold fall seasons should be avoided with this strain.

Indoor/outdoor: NYC Diesel grows best indoors in a stable climate, but fares well outdoors in a dry, warm climate.

Feeding: Build a healthy soil with lots of micro- and macro-nutrients for NYC Diesel to grow organically and thrive. Promote micro-organism and mycorrhizal diversity through compost tea to allow the plant to take in all the nutrients available in the soil. Top-dress with phosphorus-heavy nutrients when moving to flower.

    Love this strain. Am growing some Auto Sour Diesel Haze now. It’s got NYC Diesel x Auto Haze parents. 17% THC + 5% CBD with acrid citrusy diesel terps. Mmmm. Don’t know why this strain gets slept on so much. It’s not only strikingly beautiful in flower but the high is ideal for both anxiety & depression.
