Widely considered a problematic strain to get hold of, those who do get the opportunity to grow Purple Punch should do so in favorable conditions and with proper care as she is quite prone to mold growth and pest attacks.
With Purple Punch, home growers get the benefits of Indica-leaning growth patterns. She has a relatively short flowering time of only 7 to 8 weeks and stays quite compact at just 90 cm tall indoors or 150 cm outdoors. Themarijuana plant can support her colas without any assistance since she develops dense and robust branches. However, she requires regular trimming to prevent her foliage from becoming too lush. This will promote better air circulation and light exposure to the lower flowering sites, which also help keep moisture away.
Growers who have a limited amount of space in their homes should consider utilizing a Sea of Green (SOG) technique to boost yield size to 600 to 700 grams per square meter. Also use high-powered lights but maintain the temperature sitting between 70° and 80°F and Relative Humidity (RH) levels around 40% to 50%.
When it comes to outdoor growing, location is critical. Purple Punch thrives in regions with consistently warm and sunny weather,such as Florida, California, the Mediterranean, and Australia. With the right conditions and ample TLC, an astounding bud production of 1000 to 2000 grams for every outside grown plant is possible. In colder climates, you may cultivate this plant throughout the summer season but expect a lower yield. Harvest time for this strain is around September in the northern hemisphere.
Cultivators looking to bring out the purple hues of Purple Punch need to expose her to cooler temperatures around the late flowering stage while keeping the plant healthy for harvest. This form of low-stress training triggers the natural temperature protection mechanism in plants, inducing purple coloration as a result.
