Purple Confidential


Strain: Purple Confidential (Purps x LA Confidential)

Recommended experience level: Beginner to Intermediate

Female: Purps

About the mother:

Overview:

  • True hybrid growth pattern, nice vigorous growth but not stretchy, plump full nuggets, and a purple hue that comes out during the flushing of the plants before harvest. The flavor is sweet and fruity with skunky undertones.

Yield: Medium High

  • 300-700g / 1000W

Flowering time:

  • 60-65 days.

Growth stature:  Medium to med/ tall

  • Vigorous growth combined with a manageable height, only stretches about 12 inches once flipped to 12/12 light cycle. This strain yields best with multiple tops, but is versatile enough for just about any method.

Nugget type and density:

  • Plump and fluffy nuggets with medium internodal spacing.

Unique strain traits and oddities of mother:

Purpling can be enhanced by the following:

  • Begin flush 10-14 days before harvest, this will allow the chlorophyll time to breakdown and the natural purple pigments to come out
  • Create a 20 degree F temperature swing between day and night cycle (i.e. if your flower room runs 85deg while lights are on, cool it during the night cycle to a temp of 65deg)

Why we chose her:

  • True hybrid vigor, and purpling trait were the big factor aside from our usual criteria for selecting the Purps as a mother.

Traits to look for in ideal phenotype:

Desired traits from mother

  • Purpling of leaves and calyxes during late flower
  • Vigorous vegetative growth
  • Low stretching
  • High resin production
  • High potency
  • Disease resistance
  • Stability, consistency, and repeatability
  • High medicinal value

 

Desired traits from pollen donor (LA Confidential)

  • Manageable height
  • Tight dense buds
  • Short flowering period
  • High resin production
  • High potency
  • Disease resistance
  • Stability, consistency, and repeatability
  • High medicinal value

Undesirable traits potentially inherited from parents

  • Lower than average yield (LA Confidential)
