If grown outdoors, it needs plenty of sunshine and especially fertile soil for it to turn into a robust and healthy crop in the end with the potent product. Not enough sunlight can cause issues for its development. Grown indoors, this marijuana strain does not have any preferred method of being cultivated. One thing to note, however, it tends to reach taller heights than the average marijuana plant, making it sometimes difficult for indoor cultivation.
If grown indoors, expect this same number but per meter squared. Due to this extended flowering period, for outdoors the harvest period is early November and not October like most other marijuana plants. Medicinal benefits: It has an incredibly powerful effect on the mind and emotions. It is a beautiful marijuana strain for bringing positive energy back into life, ideally suited for those dealing with depression, anxiety and stress. Additionally, if experiencing fatigue, consumption of slightly larger dose than usual is beneficial. Furthermore, headaches and chronic pain are immensely affected in an upwards manner with the use. Side effects: There is a risk of over-consumption leading to greater anxiety, stress, sadness or paranoia. Most commonly reported side effects from consuming Sour Diesel are dry mouth and dry eyes.
Foreword: It is important to remember that the consumption of sour diesel is the sole responsibility of the user and discretion should always be taken.

I am in zone 6 and transplanted my butterfly bush in late May (which now I know was too late!) The bush was already producing some new growth from a hard pruning last fall/winter. I probably made several mistakes in the transplanting process. The new hole "snuggly" accomodated the established root system and I don't think I added enough nutrient rich soil. About 50 % of the bush's stems are wilting and 50% are fighting back from the shock. Is there anything I can do at this point to help it along? If so, the stonger growth, or just the weaker stems? Would you recommend the use of a root enhancer with vitamin B? While it is important to keep a transplanted shrub watered, you also want to be careful not to overwater it. Check and make sure the soil is moist, and don't water until it begins to dry out a bit. Usually it is a good idea to trim back a transplanted shrub somewhat, primarily to compensate for any lost roots abut also to allow the plant time to become established in its new location. Since the plant was cut back hard last fall, you have basically already done that. In a few weeks it will be clear that some of the stems are not going to make it or are going to be very weak and they can be removed or tipped back as needed to make the plant look a bit better. In the meantime, a root ehancer or a top dressing of compost might be useful, but the most important thing is to kepp an eye on the water when the weather turns hot. Butterfly bush doesn’t bloom until late summer, so spring is a good time to move it. (Photo: Kathy McLaughlin ) I have a mature 7-foot-tall butterfly bush that I want to move to a different location. Buddleia davidii is the most common butterfly bush and is also known as summer lilac. The ground is frozen solid now, so wait until spring to move it. Before moving, hard-prune it to about a foot from the ground. You can continue to do this aggressive pruning every year, in spring after the first new growth begins to appear, to manage its height and encourage a constant display of flowers. Prior to moving, water the plant for a few days so that the soil is moist. Find a location with full sun and well-drained soil with a neutral to slightly acid pH. If you want to transplant the shrub, dig a root mass about three-quarters of the width of the drip line by 1 foot deep before pruning. A 2-foot radius using the stem as the center point should suffice.
Insert a shovel under the root ball and gently lift. The aim is to keep as much soil on the root ball as possible during the move. Keep the root ball covered and moist until replanted.
Backfill with unamended soil; however, depending upon the soil texture such as compaction and poor drainage, the soil may need to be loosened and organic matter added.
