What role does the purple color play in this? Growers look for ways to increase the potency and value of their purple marijuana.
Purple Color, Passion and Myths.
Some beliefs about beautiful purple marijuana floating in the air are wrong. People think that factors like less sunlight or a colder climate degrade chlorophyll and anthocyanin pigments which cause the marijuana to acquire purple, reddish and burgundy tones. This means environmental conditions influence the purple color regardless of the genetics involved.Several people buy ILGM’s “purple kush” indica cannabis strainto grow purple cannabis plants. However, like all kinds of strains cultivated from seeds the purple cannabis strains breed have different phenotypes.
Aside from reducing electricity bills and other utility costs, ambitious growers seek benefits beyond than just replacing HPS with LED. These cultivators use LED to optimize product quality, increase yield and drive all sorts of efficiencies in their supply chain.
Are you thinking of starting indoor growing? Well! duplicating a natural thing artificially inside house is quite difficult than most people think, but with little bit of planning and investment, we can successfully start indoor growing.
As soon as you set up your space, you will get munificent rewards. For an average home growing the following steps will help in perfect indoor plantation. For people looking for commercial ventures have
to work a little more ahead of these steps. So, here we go step by step for successful indoor growing.
1. Step-1: Deciding the Style of Growing
The first step involves deciding which growing method you want, whether hydroponic or container style. Container method requires a series of container to grow plants using traditional soil methods. Hydroponic method requires fertilized water and non-soil starter with plants arranged vertically. Generally, now-a- days most of the beginners are preferring hydroponic system because they are sterile and disease free. This system also allows optimal amount of
water and air to reach the roots of the plants. On the other hand, container method is a good option for those who may have plan to rearrange their plants or move it outdoor eventually.
Start with Top-Shelf Genetics – get the effects and appearance you want! Your grow skill makes a huge difference, but a plant can’t overcome its genes! If you want buds that are potent, dense, sparkly or purple/pink, you need the right genetics.
Manipulate Temperature & Humidity in the flowering stage to increase resin production (“glitter” and stickiness), bring out colors like pink or purple & prevent smells from burning away
Great Air Flow Around Every Cola – you can gain surprising increases in the size and density of your buds by making sure that every cola gets lots of direct light and good air flow from the beginning to the end of the flowering stage. Cannabis is wind-pollinated in the wild and so more energy is put into buds that have been exposed to a breeze from when they first started forming.
Master the Basics of Growing – especially harvesting, trimming and drying/curing! Although a lot of growers don’t pay as much attention to what happens to plants after harvest as during the grow itself, these 3 post-harvest factors determine almost 50% of your final bud appearance. Properly drying/curing also intensifies smell and increases bud potency!
