How to Grow
Growing NYC Diesel requires lots of patience, know-how, and expertise and is therefore not a task for beginners. Most farmers will either go for outdoor cultivation and take advantage of natural lighting to aid in flowering or they may opt for outdoor cultivation as it helps in germination and may equally produce yields if supplied with constant lighting.
It has two growth phases. The first phase is the germination and vegetative phase. This entails producing new seedlings. It is also during this phase that photosynthesis takes place which makes the seedlings grow taller up to about 13 inches. This first phase normally takes place during the winter period. The second phase is the flowering phase whereby the seedlings are now placed outside. Their exposure to light stimulates flowering and aids in making the buds puff.
The seedlings can only be placed outside after developing grow tips on each set of the leaves. The plant has a fur-like tree shape, large and wide green leaves, sharp buds and brownish hairs. The lower parts of the plant should be pruned so that the nutrients available will be directed to where they are most required. The plants require healthy soil composed of micro-organisms and microorganisms to thrive well. Constant topping up with phosphorous especially during the vegetative phase should be done in order to stir the canopy kind of growth.
