Blackberry Kush Strain Review
Plants are still flowering (week 5 this stage) around 5′ tall and full. I had 2 plants under lights until they got too tall and now all are outside and love the fresh air, but the pistils are starting to turn. Will they get the purple color or can they just turn brownish? Hope to harvest within the month of June. What are your thoughts?
