Purple Haze makes you feel relaxed, enables you to shed your inhibitions, and boosts creativity. Purple Haze may even be useful if you are looking to treat depression, chronic stress, pain, and insomnia. This is an open question and is one that will ultimately depend on where you live. If you are in a northern climate with colder nights, it is entirely possible to benefit from excellent yields outside.
Despite this supposition, growers have discovered that Purple Haze produces even higher yields when planted in a sunny, Mediterranean climate. If you grow outdoors, your crop should be ready for harvest by the end of October. You are looking at a potential return of approximately 14 ounces per plant. When you grow indoors, using a hydroponic system, you could achieve up to 19 ounces of weed per square meter. Best of all, you get this high yield from a flowering time of just 8-9 weeks. Purple Haze is a pretty easy strain to grow overall, and one we recommend if you’re a new grower. If you use soil as your growing medium, it’s crucial to find or create a blend that enables maximum growth. Soil is the top layer of earth in which your Purple Haze plants grow. It is comprised of clay and rock particles, along with organic remains.
If you’re an inexperienced grower, you may be shocked by the array of soil types available. They all vary in terms of drainage, nutrient content, texture, water retention, and pH level. COMMON SOIL TYPES FOR GROWING PURPLE HAZE CANNABIS. Soil Type Description Sandy This soil type has large grains, possesses a low pH, and allows for good drainage and high oxygen levels. On the downside, it doesn’t retain water particularly well, and nutrients are easily washed away Silt This type of soil has medium-sized grains and retains water well. However, it also provides poor drainage Clay Clay has a high pH, retains water, stabilizes your plants, and provides minerals. Negative aspects include poor drainage and the fact it is difficult to work with Loam This is the preferred soil of growers. It is a mixture of silt, sand, and clay, and has an almost neutral pH. Its only downside is the expense involved in purchasing it. Loam soil provides great drainage, high oxygen levels, good water retention, supports microorganisms, and is really easy to work with. Although each marijuana strain has unique requirements, you should be able to get away with similar methods of feeding them nutrients. As far as Purple Haze is concerned, less is more during the flowering stage in particular. It is also a good idea to increase Phosphorus at this point to boost overall yield. No matter what, make sure you feed your Purple Haze plants conservatively; new growers seldom realize how often they overfeed their plants. The ensuing nutrient burn damages the plants and reduces yield. A good comparison is to view nutrients for your marijuana plants in the same light as vitamins for humans. Yes, we need vitamins to stay healthy, but should you consume ten times the daily dose of multivitamins? Instead of retaining a slavish devotion to ‘feeding schedules,’ check your plants regularly. If their leaves are green and uniform with no sign of discoloration, spots, or curling, there’s no need to feed! Overall, Purple Haze crops produce the highest yield when you provide a moderate level of nutrients. If you are using soil, adding amendments like bat guano and worm castings should provide your plants with a boost. If you are growing hydroponically, you’ll have more control over nutrient intake. Just be careful to avoid falling prey to the overfeeding trap.
As a general rule, ignore the feeding recommendations on store-bought nutrients. Begin with no more than 50% of the dose written on the package, and monitor your plants. Unless you spot signs of nutrient deficiencies, there is no need to increase the dosage. Your plants tend to need more nutrients during the vegetative stage, especially nitrogen.
Add potassium, phosphorus, and a few micronutrients such as magnesium and manganese. Pre-mixed soil/nutrient packages should have everything you need.
