It’s important to remember that indoor cultivation was still something of a novelty until the early 1990s. Only Northern Lights and a few Skunk hybrids were viable options for growers using artificial lights. Dutch growers were certainly unlocking the potential of indica-sativa crosses and flowering times were indeed becoming shorter, but all high-quality weed was still photoperiod-sensitive.
The original photoperiod-sensitive Blueberry strain is a combination of Thai and Afghan varieties that growers in the US first began crossing in the late-1970s. At the same time, a mysterious Russian subspecies of cannabis was being experimented with by a few cannabis mad scientists. Unlike photoperiod-sensitive strains, these ruderalis cultivars flowered naturally, regardless of the light-dark cycle. Blueberry would go on to start a dynasty of Blue strains that would become cannabis world stars. Unfortunately, ruderalis couldn’t replicate the same kind of success by itself. Well, at least not right away.
The Bloom cycle will be complete in 5-6 weeks from the onset of flowering. Towards the end, especially in cooler temperatures, it’s quite common for flowers to acquire a bluish hue. Tight buds with a nice frosting of resin and hints of blue/purple require minimal post-harvest manicuring. Scents of forest fruits will perfume the grow room. After 65-70 days, your Smurf-ish sinsemilla is finished. Feed light-medium doses of organic nutrients followed by a thorough flush for maximum flavour.
RQS has been continuously re-engineering and expanding breeding projects to develop outstanding hybrids. Through rigorous selection processes and patient professional breeding practices, we have created an autoflowering hybrid that embodies the most desirable attributes of both parents. Royal Bluematic retains genuine Blueberry aromas and flavours, but now in a more compact, fully automatic package that still packs one hell of a punch.
Royal Bluematic is the lush little ganja bush that you really ought to be getting ready to grow. We breakdown the vital statistics for the sinsemilla that will reward your efforts with tasty blue buds in as little as 70 days.
Outdoor balcony growers will also find this strain to be of interest as she can really bush out anytime between spring-autumn. Royal Bluematic can produce as much as 120g/plant while staying less than 1m tall, even during a short summer growing season.
Royal Bluematic is an autoflowering cannabis strain almost 40 years in the making. Our bursting-with-flavour auto hybrid is a blend of Blueberry and ruderalis genetics, fine-tuned by the master breeders at Royal Queen Seeds.
It’s all about the bud with Royal Bluematic. Plants will race into flowering only 3-4 weeks after they sprout. Indoors, maintaining an 18-6 light-dark schedule for the complete lifecycle is recommended. In contrast to the “stretch indica” habits of her photoperiodic parent, our girl grows vertically at a steady pace and peaks early. As the transition from vegetative growth into flowering is so swift, Royal Bluematic stays short. Energy is concentrated on developing a thick main cola and few bud-laden branches. 50-75cm is about the average height for mature plants, making Royal Bluematic ideally suited to micro-growers and SOG growers too.
Due to its mostly Indica genetics, Royal Bluematic has a smooth, relaxing stoned effect. The flavour is much like our Blue Mystic, a sweet smell and blueberry-like taste.
As a person who spends a considerable amount of time discovering and appreciating the subtle nuances of cannabis strains, I am very cautious in which plants I give my praise.
