How To Grow Purple Cookies Strain?
Growing this strain is not an impossibility, but we won’t really recommend it if you are a beginner. Growers with at least intermediate skills can try out the process – it can prove to be a rewarding experience.
The average flowering period of the strain lasts for 7 to 9 weeks. In such a short time frame, growers have to consistently seek issues that can arise during the flowering period since there won’t be much time for correction later.
The best part? You can easily grow this strain both outdoors and indoors, but remember that both will end up producing different yields. When grown indoors, you can expect a yield of 1 to 2 ounces/ square foot. But when you grow the same strain outdoors, you can easily get about 15 to 20 ounces/per plant.
Best grown in a dry and warm climate, the purple cookies strain is usually expected to grow somewhere between five to seven feet tall. While growing the strain outdoors, you have to ensure that the harvest or even the flowering periods don’t clash with cold weather.
