The Purple Haze strain is relatively disease-proof, which makes some aspects of its upkeep dead simple. It can be grown in both indoor and outdoor environments. Be aware that if you want to successfully grow Purple Haze outside, though, you need to be in a somewhat sunny and warm climate with quality soil compositions. If growing outside isn’t an option, though, it is more than possible to cultivate the Purple Haze strain via indoors-based hydroponic systems.
One thing to keep in mind with this strain, though, is that it can grow pretty tall due to its sativa-heavy ancestry. This is where the real high-maintenance aspect of this plant comes into play, so if you’re new to the cannabis cultivating world, this might not be the easiest start you could have with the practice.
The Purple Haze strain takes around nine weeks to flower if grown indoors, yielding about 19 ounces of bud per square meter. If outdoors, however, the plant starts flowering in the latter portion of October and will net you around 14 ounces of bud per individual plant.
It wouldn’t be the Purple Haze strain without the purple look, though, would it? To maximize the chance of this purple sheen to your bud, it’s crucial that you let the plant bask in cold temperatures right before it starts to flower. This prompts the plant’s pigment-producing capabilities, and will end up yielding you gorgeous purple and blue buds!
