The Death Star strain is a moderately challenging weed to grow. This is mainly because the density of the nuggets are susceptible to rot if there is too much moisture in the air. As it’s a clone-only strain, it can be grown indoors and outdoors, but we recommend growing it inside a greenhouse to keep out the damp and bugs. It is not a resilient plant and can suffer if the conditions aren’t perfect. Keep your greenhouse at a temperature of 68 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit for the best results.
If grown outdoors, a sunny and dry environment is a necessity. The soil needs to be healthy for this plant to have a chance of its weapon-systems becoming fully functional. To help achieve that, you can add worm castings, chicken manure and perlite to strengthen your soil.
You only need to feed it lightly. However, it does benefit from using the right feed and nutrients more than other plants, so we recommend getting yourself some and adding them when appropriate. During the 4-week grow cycle, keep it in 18 hours of light followed by 6 hours of dark. Use 4ml of pH Perfect Sensi Grow A & B (or an equivalent) for the first week, 8ml for the second week and 16ml for weeks 3 and 4. For supplements, use 8ml of B-52 and Voodoo Juice for the first two weeks, and 8ml of B-52 only for weeks 3 and 4.
Once bloomed, keep it in a 12-hour light, 12-hour dark cycle. 16ml of pH Perfect Sensi Bloom A & B should be added in each of the first 8 weeks. To get the most out of your seeds, add 8ml of Voodoo Juice in weeks 1 and 2. In weeks 2 through 5, add 8mls of Big Bud a week. Use 8mls B-52 in weeks 3 through 7, and top it off with 8mls of Overdrive in weeks 6 and 7. If you do all of that, you’ll have a very potent bud ready for consumption. Remember in week 8 to use no nutrients to let the plant flush them all out.
