Aphids, spider mites, whiteflies, and fungus gnats have been the bane of many marijuana growers’ existence. Unlike humans, these pests don’t seem to mind the taste of raw cannabis. If you’re growing indoors, a pest infestation can quickly get out of control. Although it is tempting to use commercial pesticides, it is safer and better for your crop to try organic solutions.
Neem oil is one of the most effective natural pesticides around. On the downside, it leaves a nasty taste and smell on buds, so try to ensure it stays away from them! As neem oil and water separate easily, you can combine the two and mist the leaves your plants evenly. You can also make a mixture of vegetable oil and soap, and spray it on infested leaves of your Purple Haze plants. This combination is effective against mites, beetles, aphids, and thrips. Garlic works as both an insecticide and an insect repellent. Leave it overnight, strain, and add half a cup of vegetable oil and mild soap. Then fill up with water until the full mixture measures a quart.
7 – Can I Get That ‘Purple’ Coloring with Other Strains? Some growers are obsessed by the beauty of this type of cannabis and try to reproduce the color. It is possible to force a purple color on certain types of weed and heighten the purple hue of other strains! However, it is a risky endeavor because it involves exposing your cannabis to cold nighttime temperatures. Other growers also increase the daytime temperature to ensure there is a massive difference between day and night. It can work because exposing your cannabis to such temperature extremes will disrupt its phosphorus intake. In certain plants, this causes the upper leaves to turn purple or even red. This reddening or purpling caused by low-temperature exposure can also result in decreased yields. This is because non-green leaves might not be as efficient at photosynthesis as green leaves. If you want to go ahead, make sure your plants are not exposed to temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature falls any lower, you could permanently damage your crop. Even when you get it right and produce a purple color, you are likely to slow down growth and interfere with several aspects of a flower’s development. It is also important to wait until just before harvest to reduce any potential damage to the yield. By the way, turning a strain purple does not increase its potency. If you attempt the scheme any earlier, you could ruin months of hard work. In the end, if you want purple cannabis, purchase seeds with a true purple cannabis phenotype, such as Purple Haze! You get the color you love and get to grow the strain at temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees. For all your automotive needs, be sure to visit AutoFarm Price Ford!
