Ayahuasca Purple is a pure Indicahybridthat remains compact and small, making her suited for a Sea of Green(SOG) cultivation. If you plan to grow a smaller number of plants per square meter, we recommend pushing the pre-veg for around 5 to 8 weeks to achieve a larger yield.
Ayahuasca Purple also does well when grown without the intervention of any techniques. Just make sure not to overfeed the plant as excess nutes could be detrimental to her health. Also install structures to support the branches of the strain to prevent her heavy colas from causing them to sag. While the limbs may need help, the stem should be strong enough to keep her structure standing upright.
The final height of AyahuascaPurple is typically between 90 and 100 cm. She does not stretch much during the flowering period, often coming to a complete stop two or three weeks after switching to the 12/12 cycle. This allows the plant to put all her energy into developing her buds.
The internode distance of Ayahuasca Purple is small, and her leaves are broad like a true Indica. Because of these growth traits and her dense buds, growers must be careful with accumulating moisture towards the end of the flowering phase. Placing the plant under a roof or shelter during late flowering is a must if you’re cultivating outdoors.
Cold shocking or exposure to lower night temperatures bring out the beautiful color palette of Ayahuasca Purple. This process turns her leaves and buds dark purple and is best performed two weeks before harvest. The strain spends 8 to 9 weeks fruiting and will produce up to 650 grams per square meter.
Outdoors, Ayahuasca Purple’s flowers turn from dark green to plum during fall/autumn. The colder it is, the sooner the color change transpires. You can start collecting the buds by mid to late September and look forward to achieving 600 to 800 grams per plant in optimal conditions.
