Dream Berry bud platform

Hey there Bean, hey Female Seeds fans

Having grown Blueberry Cheesecake two years ago (freebie from Female Seeds sent with my order of Purple Maroc and Sexbud), I was pleased to hear about Dream Berry. So this year I ordered Dream Berry seeds.

I saw Female Seeds' comment on their website that Dream Berry generally has compact buds at the top of the plant, and that bud on the lower branches will be more "open structure" or "fluffy". I have to confess I am a fan of compact buds (and less so of the fluffy variety, but I'll take that if that's all there is!).

So I'm experimenting with DB. I wondered if I might get more compact buds if I LST'd my Dream Berry plant's main stem into a more horizontal growth pattern, allowing the side branches from all the nodes to shoot up vertically. That way, I thought, I'll have more bud on the many many branch tips I'll get.

Other than the 90 degree bend at the height of the balcony railing, I did nothing except feed and water them. No topping, just let that main stem grow straight out towards the setting sun. So far, it seems to have worked. Now in her 5th week of flowering, the buds on the tips are filling in nicely, it seems.

Here a few photos. Have any Dream Berry growers out there noticed the difference between the compact buds at the top of the plant and the open structure buds lower down?

Thanks for a comment!

Dream Berry, the view from behind, Sept 1. Also, side views. Buds filling in now, many higher up.

This looks like a great way to get denser nugs all the way down. Nice work. I did notice with most of the Iced grapefruit phenos I grew had fluffy lowers.

Thanks for that. That is exactly what I am hoping for: dense, hard, compact nugs all the way down the branches, or at least most of the way down. It does seem to be working. I'll not harvest her for at least another month or 6 weeks, so there is time for them to fill out even more. Will post more as she gets closer.

Mr. Bean, any thoughts on this topic? I miss those discussions we used to have...

Dream Berry continues to ripen as her longish compact buds swell. In the first photo, Dream Berry buds shown on Sept 13. In the second photo, White Widow in foreground and Dream Berry in background.


Where is Bean? No longer works here?
