Tips for Growing Sour Diesel Cannabis

June 2, 2017
Sour Diesel at From The Soil Farms (Leafly)
Strain Overview: Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain bred from Chemdawg 91 and Super Skunk. A legendary strain on the East Coast, it’s known for its unique pungent diesel aroma. Also noted for its cerebral and energizing qualities, Sour Diesel has carved out a place for itself among the most celebrated strains of all time.
Grow Techniques: Being sativa-dominant, this strain tends to grow lanky and tall. It is known to stretch multiple times while flowering, making it difficult to manage. To grow successfully, you must be dedicated to pruning, training, and topping to keep this plant from getting out of control. If growing indoors, consider sticking to soil to help steady the growth of the plant.

Flowering Time: 10 to 11 weeks

Yield: Moderate. If you can control the stretching and feed the plant accordingly, heavier yields are possible.

Grow Difficulty: Moderate to hard

Climate: Mild to warm climate preferred, with temperatures between 68 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: Sour Diesel fills indoor space rapidly, making it a better choice for outdoor or greenhouse gardens where it will have more room to stretch. Because it is a late finisher, you’ll also want to feel confident that the climate in your region will remain fair into late October/November if grown outside.

Feeding: Sour Diesel is a hungry plant that grows vigorously. It takes heavy feeding all the way through its flowering cycle for the buds to reach their potential. Feed plants with finishing nutrients to help the sativa buds put on structure and dense up before the final flush.
