How to grow Granddaddy Purple seeds
Granddaddy Purple seeds may thrive everywhere due to their Indica origin. They’re resilient and require minimal care aside from little support to handle the weight of their big colas. Granddaddy Purple seeds are simple to cultivate indoors, requiring only basic care such as adequate light and temperature. Granddaddy Purple seeds prefer a temperature range of 70-79 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity level of 50%. They are also healthier when grown in nutrient-rich soil or a hydroponic system.
Indoors, these plants may grow up to three feet tall and begin to blossom between 8-10 weeks producing around 19 ounces per square foot. Conversely, outdoor-grown GDP plants can stretch up your fence and reach six feet tall in sunny areas. They thrive in warm regions but perform well in the northern hemisphere when cold is avoided. Outdoors, a healthy life cycle from GDP seed to maturity yields around 17.5 ounces per plant.
Here are some tips to assist you in growing Granddaddy Purple seeds
- Grow techniques: Super-cropping increases the yield of your Granddaddy Purple grow. Super-cropping is a high-stress training (HST) method that entails purposely harming your Granddaddy Purple plants for them to grow bushier, with more buds and higher THC levels. Pick bendy branches and use this technique at the vegetative phase to super-crop your Granddaddy Purple plant. Squeeze and bend these GDP branches in the direction you want them to grow. To prevent your stem from returning to its original place, you must secure it (bind it down). If you have fractured a branch, use duct tape to strengthen the plant so that it can heal. When done correctly, you get more branches, buds, a shorter and more controlled Granddaddy Purple plant, and a greater THC potency.
- Feeding: When feeding your Grandaddy Purps, opt for ‘organic’ fertilizers. Using synthetic fertilizers can add too much salt to the soil, decreasing your plants’ capacity to absorb nutrients. You should buy a pre-mixed bag of organic ‘super soil’ having all your GDP plants need. After selecting high-quality soil, the following step is to add the appropriate amendments. Also, look for nitrogen-rich meals such as bat guano, crab meal, and worm castings during the vegetative stage. Organic phosphorus-rich additives include rock dust, chicken dung, and bone meal. Add compost, wood ash, and kelp meal to your soil to increase its potassium level.
- Handling bud rot: If you try to produce GDP in a high humidity setting, you will expose it to bud rot and mildew. Bud rot is a form of mold that attacks the stems from within. It isn’t easy to detect early on, and if left untreated, it produces spores that travel in all directions. The rot has the potential to contaminate your entire crop. Pruning and training procedures can help to avoid bud rot. You increase airflow while decreasing moisture accumulation. Reduce root rot issues by properly watering your GDP plants and providing breathable soil.
- Handling mildew: Powdery mildew can be seen on marijuana plant buds and leaves. It can first be noticed on the lower branches due to the lack of sunlight and increasing humidity. It usually appears as a white, powdery residue on the surface of the leaves. It spreads swiftly and reaches bud sites. Powdery mildew is much more visible and may be avoided by trimming the plants and treating them with organic fungicides. If your GDP plants suffer this problem during harvest, combine 3% hydrogen peroxide with water to create a solution that sterilizes the harvested plants and eliminates the mildew.
- Controlling humidity: Whether you grow Grandaddy Purple seeds inside or outdoors, you first need to get a hygrometer to measure humidity. When you water your plants, the moisture level in the room rises dramatically. While this is beneficial during the vegetative stage, it becomes a concern during blooming when humidity levels must be reduced. The smart idea is to water your plants when the lights are turned on, as most water evaporates throughout the day. Watering at night decreases the need to extract as much hot air as possible while increasing humidity levels. You should also install a dehumidifier to prevent excessive humidity. Remember that humidity levels must reduce during blooming and should be at most 40% by the final few weeks.
