Critical Purple Kush prefers a mild environment. In fact, these beauties thrive in a climate between 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you live somewhere warm and sunny, growing Critical Purple outdoors is an option.

For the best results indoors, grow in a spacious greenhouse.

Those planning an indoor grow may also want to invest in an effective humidity management system to make the conditions perfect for these lovely plants.

Providing more space is ideal; however, you can also grow this strain in small indoor spaces.

To do this, proactively trim the branches. Here’s why: Pruning gives the buds more room to grow, making your space usage as efficient as possible.

Be sure to maintain low humidity and proper airflow during flowering to prevent bud rot.

Also, feed your plants well during the flowering phase to give more body to the buds. Growers using liquid nutrients should dress the soil to allow for proper absorption.

Planning to grow indoors with a limited vertical room? Go for Indica seeds as these grow small, but flower more quickly. For the best results, shop my store for high-quality Indica weed seeds.

The color of the buds can vary from dark green to purple. But, unlike other strains, Critical Purple nugs naturally develop their attractive bag appeal.

The best part? There’s no need to expose your plants to lower temperatures to get that prettier look; this strain is ‘good looking’ just the way she is.

Flowering Time


Critical Purple Kush strain weed creates big, compact, resin-saturated, and exotically colored buds. When grown indoors, these plants are ready for harvest in 8 to 9 weeks. Provide the proper conditions to reach typical yields of 14 to 16 ounces per square yard.


For growers in the northern hemisphere, harvest time for outdoor gardens is around early October. Outdoors, with plenty of sunlight and space, you can reach yields of roughly 17.5 ounces per plant.
