How to grow Afghan Kush strain
Before you get started, know that Purple Afghan Kush is used to thriving in drier and hotter conditions than normal. If you’re concerned about overwatering, be sure to throw some perlite into your soil, to help keep your plants a little drier.
Being from an arid climate, you’ll want to keep your humidity down, as higher humidity levels will surely choke your plants and their progress. This isn’t an overly difficult strain to grow, but keeping an eye on the basics, like your climate, is a must. If cared for properly, purple afghan kush can produce quantities of up to 500 grams per square meter, or as much as 800 grams per plant outdoors.
You can grow Purple Afghan Kush outdoors or in a greenhouse, however, if you do, you need to make sure you are not overwatering or allowing the weather to affect your grow. Your best bet is to give this a shot indoors, where you can better monitor and adjust the climate to meet the plant’s drier needs.
Purple Afghan Kush doesn’t get too tall, typically staying at or under one meter in height when grown indoors. Size-wise, it is known for adapting to its environment. Outdoors it can reach heights of over two meters. It has a tendency to be bushy, especially if topped more than once.
The buds will be a dark green early on in the flowering phase, however, they will lose chlorophyll and take on a distinct purple hue as you get closer to harvest. Buds along the central stalk will not form a single dense cola, instead there will be some spacing between the nodes, reminiscent of a Girl Scout Cookie or similar strain.
