      Purple Wreck may be grown indoor or outdoor and can be very forgiving to novice growers. However, most experienced growers would say that the strain is better off in an indoor cultivation because growing them outdoor would require a tropical or Mediterranean climate.

      Prospective growers can choose to cultivate directly on soil or in hydro mediums. The strain can also thrive in a SOG growing method. It is a pretty flexible strain and not to mention the fact that initial purpose of its development was to speed up the growing time of its parent strain, the Purple Urkle.

      Flowering Time


      The indoor cultivation of Purple Wreck will take about 8 to 9 weeks and can produce a yield of 14 to 17 ounces per square meter.


      Given that the ideal outdoor condition is met, the buds of Purple Wreck should be ready for harvest by late September to early October. The yield is just as abundant at 21 ounces or more per plant.
