    Strain: The Purps

    Growth: Small, Bushy Plant. Vegged for 4 weeks, plant was under 24" tall, with 17 main branches!

    Nutes: Advanced Nutrients - Sensi Grow AB, Sensi Bloom AB, Sensizyn, Voodoo Juice, Big Bud, Bud Candy, Bud Factor X

    Yield: Plant #1 - 251g wet, 92g dry.
    "The Runt" - 241g wet, ?? dry.

    Bag Appeal: 9/10 -This bud is sexy as hell, nice red hairs, light green calyxes with purple streaks (not pictured), and tons of trichomes.

    Smell: 10/10 - When growing this stuff smelled like grape Kool-aid, it was amazing! Once dried it lost a lot of it's smell, but after 3 weeks curing it smells earthy, with very subtle grape tones.

    Taste: 8/10 - Very impressed! It has a pretty complex flavour, one that I've never tasted before. It's an earthy, skunky, grape taste, in that order, of strongest to weakest. I was hoping for more grape flavour, but excellent never-the-less!

    The High: 10/10 - I purposefully harvested a little early to make sure I got a more heady, uplifting buzz. Regardless of that this bud still has serious couch lock! LOL There's so many trichomes on this bud that it feels almost like taking a kief hit.

    Comments: A beautiful plant, a pleasure to grow!



    Here's some various pictures from different stages of growth!


    Plant #1- All cured

    Lovely. I wanted to grow some of this so bad last year. I just got on this binge of just buy one fem seed of each strain and cloning em out. Since this one is regular non fem only I had to pass. After seeing that first pic of plant 1 growing I need to have them. Looks like a lot of bud for the plant size. Was that LED panel the only thing you used to flower? Great job!

    Yep, all LED. I did use 2 CFL's for vegging, but they were only 42 and 23 watts respectively.

    There are definitely fem seeds of both Purps and God Bud....

    The Runt is very skunky... the buds smell like Skunk and Grape. Curing is underway now... I should have let Plant #1 grow more, I def harvested a little early....

    A grower friend grew "the Purps" last year and I bought an ounce. After the purchase I was really sorry I hadnt bought more. I dont know if its the same "the Purps", but this shit was a 2 toker. Best of all though was it lasted for hours-- much, much longer than the average "good" smoke.

    sorry to say but by the looks of it you dont got a very strong pheno of the purps, it doesnt really look like the purps what so ever...the purps is more sativa so the buds are a bit looser...and the reason the name of it is THE PURPS is because of the purple bud lol dont get me wrong you did a great job

    LED has been known to out veg HID...

    I just didn't get it cold enough.... one thing with LED's, you don't need any kind of cooling, so my plants never dipped below 20 degrees Celsius and never over 24 degrees Celsius.
