Grow Difficulty: Easy

Indoor/Outdoor: Outdoor gardens tend to produce bigger yields, but Purple Haze does well indoors as well.

Strain Overview: Purple Haze is a classic sativa strain made popular by the late Jimi Hendrix. Thought to be a cross of Purple Thai and Haze, this strain offers a stimulating and euphoric high. Its flavor is fruity, sweet, and earthy.

Climate: Purple Haze does fine in northerly climates with colder nights, but prefers temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Feeding: Feed moderately during flowering, then bump up the phosphorus to maximize the yield.

Yield: High

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Although it is tempting to use commercial pesticides, it is safer and better for your crop to try organic solutions. Neem oil is one of the most effective natural pesticides around. On the downside, it leaves a nasty taste and smell on buds, so try to ensure it stays away from them!

This combination is effective against mites, beetles, aphids, and thrips. Garlic works as both an insecticide and an insect repellent. Puree two bulbs of garlic in a blender with water. Leave it overnight, strain, and add half a cup of vegetable oil and mild soap. Then fill up with water until the full mixture measures a quart.

As neem oil and water separate easily, you can combine the two and mist the leaves your plants evenly.

Although each marijuana strain has unique requirements, you should be able to get away with similar methods of feeding them nutrients. As far as Purple Haze is concerned, less is more during the flowering stage in particular. It is also a good idea to increase Phosphorus at this point to boost overall yield.


We don’t recommend the process. If you want to go ahead, make sure your plants are not exposed to temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature falls any lower, you could permanently damage your crop. Even when you get it right and produce a purple color, you are likely to slow down growth and interfere with several aspects of a flower’s development.

It can work because exposing your cannabis to such temperature extremes will disrupt its phosphorus intake. In certain plants, this causes the upper leaves to turn purple or even red.

As harvest time approaches, it is normal for the lower leaves of your plant to start turning yellow. Reduce the nutrient intake from four weeks before harvest, or you risk getting a nasty taste from your weed.


No matter what, make sure you feed your Purple Haze plants conservatively; new growers seldom realize how often they overfeed their plants.

Despite this supposition, growers have discovered that Purple Haze produces even higher yields when planted in a sunny, Mediterranean climate. If you grow outdoors, your crop should be ready for harvest by the end of October. You are looking at a potential return of approximately 14 ounces per plant.
