Purple marijuana is highly prized by growers, it is suitable for indoor and outdoor cultivations as well as for any kind of substrate.

Characteristics of purple feminized cannabis seeds

This distinguishing colour is the reason why they attract so much interest among seed enthusiasts. These are strains of unparalleled beauty that capture the attention of plant lovers, and at Experiencia Natural it is possible to get some best feminized purple marijuana seeds on the market.
One of the culprits of purple colouring in crops are flavonoids. Flavonoids are secondary metabolites that provide pigmentation to different plant species. There are several types of flavonoids: isoflavonoids, neoflavonoids and anthocyanins. The latter are responsible for the existence of purple feminized cannabis seeds.
Anthocyanins are a group of flavonoids made up of 400 water-soluble pigments that can produce reddish, purple or blue colourations depending on the pH at which the crops are grown. Thus, when the acidity level is higher, the colouring will be more reddish; when the pH is neutral, the colouring is more purple; while in alkaline conditions, the colouring will be bluish.
Anthocyanins, which are responsible for the existence of purple feminized marijuana seeds, are not produced throughout the life cycle of the crops, but appear towards the last moments of the flowering of the plants, which is when the colouring of the crops changes.
This is explained by the absence of chlorophyll, the compound that gives plants their green colour. In many cases, plant species stop chlorophyll production in the last weeks of flowering. In other words, when crops sense that the days are getting shorter and exposure to darkness is increasing, they receive a biological signal that stops chlorophyll production.
At the same time, exposure of crops to low temperatures also stimulates the creation of anthocyanins. This explains why many varieties subjected to cold conditions can develop very attractive violet colourations. Another reason for the existence of purple feminized marijuana seeds.
