Growing Purple Kush Feminized Seeds
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.

Purple Kush Plants & Their Preferred Climate
Purple Kush can thrive well indoors or outdoors, provided all the conditions necessary for its growth are kept constant. Most experienced growers will have no trouble growing this plant; however, its compact, bushy stature may be a challenge for new growers.
Purple Kush thrives outdoors in cool climates. Since it is a hardy plant that’s resistant to many pests and parasites, the only requirement is proper temperature and airflow. Wherever you decide to grow, you will need to do some pruning to maintain a healthy airflow. The Screen for Green (SCROG) technique works best for this strain, given the fact that it’s bushy.
Purple Kush also does well in a hydroponic setup, as this allows the plant to obtain the necessary nutrients for development. Keep it relatively cool, though. Temperatures between 65 and 75 Fahrenheit are ideal.
Flowering & Yield
You won’t be waiting long for this plant to flower. It takes about 7-8 weeks if grown indoors. Under excellent conditions, you can yield about 9 ounces of usable bud per square meter. When grown outdoors, harvest comes early – about late September. Experienced growers may yield about 8 ounces per plant.
Experiencing Purple Kush
Because of its indica parents, Purple Kush is a master at relaxation. This marijuana strain provides a cerebral uplift and warm euphoric high while still helping you sleep. It makes this strain ideal after a long day’s work.
Purple Kush is designed to induce sleep, but it also sends you off with warm fuzzy feelings. You’ll want to have some food nearby because you’ll likely feel very hungry as well. But don’t worry, you’re nearly guaranteed not to feel ‘hangry.’
Sometimes, this strain can cause dizziness, headaches, dry eyes, and cottonmouth. If you’re eating something, have water nearby. Rarely, Purple Kush can cause paranoia. It can be a very potent strain, so you’ll want to take it slow.
Purple Kush Taste & Smell
The rich lineage of Purple Kush adds to its distinct aroma. It is pungent, yet sweet with bits of earthiness mixed in. Some say it smells like grapes if those grapes were dipped in spices.
