Original Purple Kush is popular for its photosensitive strains while Ruderalis has a genetic auto flowering framework which does not need light cycle changes for starting the flowering process. However, the potency of auto flowering Purple Kush is a little less than the original predecessors but is easy to grow and offers a great smoking experience.
How to Grow Auto Flowering Purple Kush?
Indica-dominant Ruderalis marijuana is a strong plant capable of handling extensive humidity, temperature and pH fluctuations. These genetic traits are found in auto flowering Purple Kush, so novice growers who often make errors will certainly not be able to kill the plant. As it is an Indica-dominant strain the plants height is small, approximately 30 cm – 60 cm.
This means a small scale crop can be grown using the LST method to decrease the height even more. They can easily grow a horizontal bushy plant of 20 cm to 30 cm in height.
As the Purple Kush strain includes Indica and ruderalis genetics, feed them with ½ or ¼ strength nutrients, just once. Small plants have a root mass that is also small. Overfeeding becomes easy, which can cause deficiency, bad illness or deficiency in the plant. Watering needs to be in check as the plants are small and need less water to thrive. Purple Kush auto can be grown under any light sources and even outdoors. Its lifespan and flowering period is short, so the buds will be produced and finished in any growing conditions.
