Which of these mold resistant strains for indoors?

    RH is pretty high here in London and I got problems with bud rot. I'm soon to start my second grow and I'm looking for a rot resitant strain which finishes fast and packs a good hit.

    My initial thoughts are either Barney's Crimea Blue, G13 Blueberry gum, Delicious Northern Lights Blue or Greenhouse's The Church. I understand that none of these hits like a truck but that they are all decently potent.

    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations out of this lot or any others.

    i have an rvk100 and a tiny tent (3x3x6 foot). with that amount of air being pulled through i'm not sure how much of an impact a dehumidifier would have.

    probably none. so you're venting your tent with outside air right ? during lights out too ?

    no the tent is inside the house. the air outside is even more humid.

    edit: i am venting during lights out too. RH is higher then cos temps are lower. i suppose one option would not to vent and to run the dehumidifier during lights out?

    yeah that's what I'm getting at, that's when mold usually starts. what I'm asking are you venting any of the rooms air outside, otherwise you're humidity is going to rise too high without a dehumidifier in the room.
    The outside humidity may be higher but that is RELATIVE humidity, relative to the cooler outside temperature.
    More impoprtantly high humidity severly hampers the plants transpiration which affects the plants nutrient uptake and "breathing" mold resistance or not you want your humidity below 70 % but the lower the better.

    Ive been growing g13 Blueberry Gum for a year and a half and its is very mold resistant! i have never had problems with her and its a solid strain with the most amazing smell and taste
    She is a little testy with nutes so dont overfeed if you decide to get the BBG

    when you rub her stem it smells straight like pez!

    as far as the humidity, you need to remove the moisture any way possible. If you are on a budget i suggest making a DIY coffee can wood charcoal dehumidifier
    google it..its pretty effective
    each can lowers approximately 10% RH so make how every many you need and the charcoal lasts up to a year before needing to be replaced
    it also effectively reduces the amount of mold spores in the air by acting as a pseudo filter
    one downside is it smells like burnt wood but doesn't affect the smell or flavor at all. Kinda acts as a smell cover up ^_^

    Good luck!

    no i'm venting into the house but it's a small tent venting into quite a big space. i don't really have the option of venting outside atm.

    I almost got the bluberry gum!! damnit! i got pineapple express instead which i regret cuz they gave me 3 free p.e. fems for buying a g13 pack in the first place. how does it grow for you? does it veg fast? tall? heavy yield? flower time? resin profile compared to others uve grown?

    You will have a chance to grab some beans again, get a couple because the phenotypes differ somewhat. Mostly by structure and smell
    Veg time is medium-short if you feed her right. A 2" clone will be ready for flower in 2-3 weeks max under proper lighting. I veg em under a 250W MH from a 4' dual Floro which i clone under and flower at 12"
    She stretches at least double in the first 2 weeks of flower and fattens quickly. Yield is medium but i grow 100% organic so with hydro or chemical nutes in soil you can get monster yeilds.
    Average is 1 ounce organic per 12" flowered plant. Flower time is SUPER short! 50 days and she is good to go! another week and she will lock you to the couch! I like to harvest at 50 days to get a nice balance between high and stone. I find the BBG when flowered longer is resistant to hermi and increases resin production overall along with flavor. Try adding boiling water to the plant 2 days before harvest and the plant will die and use up its starches which break down into complex sugars which in turn makes the bud taste better(Pre-curing i call it). This will really bring out the bouquet of the bud. Curing time for this strain is 3 weeks minimum to bring out all flavor and smell.
    Resin content like i said is increases with longer flowering time but in comparison to my other strains it ranks in the middle. What wins me over about it is the smell and flavor when grown organically, if you like a powerful body high that will put you to sleep then Blueberrygum is what you want. Not a good wake-n-bake strain, can definitely keep you in bed or on the couch ALL DAY.
    Its overall a good strain to have, very versatile

    Try some Durban poison, super lemon haze, nothing to dense like bubba kush.
