In this grow, we went with Sweet Berry Breeze Feminized, which we launched in 2024. This strain is instantly recognisable by its delightful, sweet flavour profile and uplifting high that gradually transitions into a deep body stone. We used BAC Lava soil as our growing medium, as well as Bio Grow and Bio Bloom nutrients throughout the growth cycle. Moreover, we utilised a 1000W Green Power Phillips HPS light to provide optimal light coverage and intensity.

We followed a lighting schedule of 18 hours on and 6 hours off during vegetation and transitioned to 12 hours on and 12 hours off during the flowering period. We kept a temperature of 23°C during the day and 21°C at night. We also placed oscillating fans and intake fans with carbon filters to establish negative pressure and maintain adequate air circulation and maintain the humidity of 65%.

Germination & seedling

We germinated our Sweet Berry Breeze seeds between two damp paper towels and two plates. Within 24 hours, the seed cracked open, and the taproot began to show. We gently planted the seed in the soil using tweezers, burying it 0.5 cm deep with the taproot pointing down. These seeds were vigilant, and the husk of the shell could be seen pushing through the top layer within a day.

We watered the soil with 100 ml of water with a pH of 6.2 and added root stimulant around the stem on the third day. As our seed emerged, it revealed bright green cotyledon leaves and had grown 3 cm above the soil by the end of week one.


During the second week of growth, our Sweet Berry Breeze plant showed significant progress, reaching an impressive height of 16 cm. As the root system expanded, we increased the amount of water to 200 ml to keep up with the growth. Towards the end of the week, we noticed roots emerging from the bottom and sides of the 1-litre container. This indicated that it was time to transplant the plant into a larger, 8-litre container to provide ample space for the roots to flourish. 

To further ensure the plant’s health, we hung Neoseiulus Californicus and Amblyseius Swirskii sachets from the lower lateral branches. These predators are crucial in eliminating unwanted pests such as thrips, fungus gnats, and two-spotted spider mites. 

Throughout the third week, our Sweet Berry Breeze was thriving. It had grown by 11 cm (to a height of 27 cm) and looked exceptionally healthy. As a result, we increased the water volume to 400 ml while maintaining the EC levels at 1.4. The lower limbs started reaching out from the main stem to receive light from above, while the seven-fingered broad green fan leaves were large and densely clustered due to the tight internodal spacing.


As we entered week four, we were delighted to see that the plant had grown to a height of 41 cm. We changed our lighting schedule to 12 hours on and 12 hours off to initiate the flowering period. We again increased the amount of water to 800 ml and we stopped supplementing Bio Grow while introducing Bio Bloom into our feeding regimen. Additionally, we raised the EC to 1.7 for optimal growth. 

Further, we lowered the humidity levels to 60% during the flowering stage to account for the extra moisture, which can help prevent the growth of mould and mildew.

In week five, our Sweet Berry Breeze plant continued to grow significantly, reaching a height of 64 cm, and we can see pre-flowers now emerging. We increased the water to 1000 ml which should provide enough for the plant to grow properly. We also adjusted our EC levels to 1.8, which is the optimal range for our plant to absorb the necessary nutrients, and we increased the volume of nutrients. 

During the sixth week of growth, the plant showed significant progress, having reached a height of 80 cm and developed six nodes. The internodal spacing decreased, and the leaves remained broad, indicating healthy growth. Additionally, the volume of water was increased to 1500 ml to support the plant’s development and will remain the same until harvest. The plant’s morphology is symmetrical, with a tall posture with short branches.

In the seventh week, we noticed a significant increase in foliage growth near the apical mainstem, and the internodal gaps were filled with broad fan leaves. To reduce the risk of botrytis, we removed excess foliage to help improve airflow within the canopy.

Our Sweet Berry Breeze plant was now 96 cm tall, and we observed that the calyxes were slowly starting to swell. We also noticed increased trichome development, which is a sign that our plant was thriving and well on its way to producing high-quality buds.

By the end of week eight, we observed a significant increase of 7 cm in the height of our plant. Since we had reached the four-week mark since renewing our Neoseiulus Californicus and Amblyseius Swirskii sachets, we decided to replace the old ones with fresh ones. We carefully hung the new sachets from sturdy lateral branches, ensuring optimal placement. We also noticed that our buds were gradually starting to gain density.

By week nine, our Sweet Berry Breeze plant had undergone its final growth spurt, reaching a height of 104 cm. The buds had a light green hue, while the broad leaves displayed a darker green colour, indicating ideal nitrogen ratios in the leaves. Clusters of buds were visibly developing at the nodes, which were covered in white pistils.

As the plant entered its tenth week of growth, the height remained consistent at 104 cm. However, the growth and development of the buds continued to be impressive. The buds also showed signs of maturing, with light orange pistils becoming increasingly visible on the surface.

During the eleventh week of the grow cycle, our Sweet Berry Breeze plant developed a massive cola that was covered in a thick layer of white resin, which is truly remarkable. The broad olive-green foliage with pointed leaves was beginning to show some yellowing, indicating that the flowering period was ending and the plant was using up all its related nutrients.

Although it had been a while since we renewed our Neoseiulus Californicus and Ambtyseius Swirskii sachet, we decided not to replenish them as it was coming close to harvest.

Throughout week twelve, we could see the beautiful buds taking shape, with their light olive-green colour and thin-fingered leaves. An abundance of fiery orange pistils popped out among a plethora of white resin glands and swollen calyxes, making for a beautiful sight. We used our jeweller’s loupe to examine the trichome colour to ensure we harvested at the correct time. We knew it was time to harvest once the trichomes had reached the desired colour.


Once the plant was cut down at the stem, we carefully maintained a steady room environment to begin drying. We kept the temperature at 15.5°C and maintained a relative humidity level of 60% to prevent any potential mould or disease. Lastly, we hung our plant upside down in our designated drying area for 21 days.

Once the branches were brittle enough to snap, it was time to finish trimming them and put the buds into jars for curing. The buds were compact and dense without too much spare leaf which made trimming a breeze.

Once the trimming was done the flowers went into glass jars that were left unsealed for the first 24 hours, allowing the bulk of the remaining moisture to evaporate. On the second day, the jars were sealed and then routinely “burped” multiple times a day for around an hour each time. This went on for the first two weeks. For the final four weeks of curing, the jars were burped only once a day.

Terpene profile

Sweet Berry Breeze Feminized has a flavour profile that would make a fruit stand blush. A blend of citrusy fruits gives these buds a tropical essence. 

The combination of Mendocino Channel Kush and Strawberries & Cream F1 in the terpene profile results in a delightful blend of earthy, bitter, floral, and tropical juicy, fruity aromas. The scents complement each other perfectly, creating a profile that reminds many of candy.

Despite the number of contributors, the tastebuds can discern individual fruits. It starts with freshly peeled grapefruit, then a splash of oranges, followed by ripe pineapple. 

Just below those primary flavours are a citrusy lime mojito and an intriguing chocolatey smoothness. Prepare your tastebuds for enjoyment!

Our cultivation report highlights the strain’s exceptional flavour profile, marked by a delicate blend of earthy, bitter, and floral aromas, which the strain thanks to the distinct lineage. 

Overall Sweet Berry Breeze lived up to its name being a real breeze to grow. This strain is ideal for indoor growers with limited vertical space who are looking to produce dense, quality buds. With its rapid 56-day flowering time, this strain is a great addition to any grower’s garden.
