Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This FastBuds Purple Punch Auto developed rounded compact buds with super fat calyxes with beautiful purple coloration expressing from one phenotype, while the other pheno had beautiful lime green buds with orange hairs that provided a breathtaking contrast of colors, especially with the heavy coating of white 'frost' that BOTH phenotypes have produced that covers their flowers with that beautiful snow covered look that all of us seek. The buds give off a mouth-watering mix of sweet fruits with a spicy touch that hits you before you even set eyes on these sticky buds!

I had to try a 'test bud', though I usually prefer to let them cure for at least a week or two before I sample. This strain has a definitely sweet taste, almost like biting into a blueberry pastry that lingers on your tongue! This Purple Punch has a high THC level so the effect is fast and powerful relaxing your whole body almost instantly, allowing any position you may be in to be extremely comfy, melting you into a comfortably numb bliss!

Even with the strong Indica effect, 'couch-lock' won’t be an issue thanks to the 15% Sativa genes that help contribute a pleasant creative head-high that leaves your mind clear, aligning your Chi and placing you in a state of Zen. This is the perfect strain to get you through a busy day stress-free, ease those sore muscles after a long day or just having a epic night out with friends...Purple Punch is a crowd pleaser for sure! :+1::skin-tone-3::+1::skin-tone-3::+1::skin-tone-3::sunglasses::green_heart:

Nutrients

I went with Fox Farms Nutrients for this run and oh boy what a difference they made over my last run using 'Living Soil Concentrate' which graced me with my first ever Fungus Gnat infestation. Super easy to apply, ph balanced and....SUPER effective!
I didn't use the full lineup but am TOTALLY satisfied with the results provided by these nutrients and would recommend them highly!:sunglasses::+1:

Used religiously and my 'go to' for all my runs!

Next to Down To Earth, Dr. Earth is right their with them! I use Dr. Earth dry amendments for my top dressing during my runs, and can't think of another product that's given me such epic results! :green_heart::green_heart::green_heart:

Absolutely LOVE this companies product line! I use several of their amendments, which are all 100% Organic OMRI Certified and have had nothing but great things to say and the results... My runs speak for themselves!:sunglasses::ok_hand::green_heart:

Lights

This Unit Farm UFS3000 205w Full Spectrum LED light caught my interest when I first saw it because of its form factor...It's the thinnest light I've seen! So, when I had the opportunity to test one of these I jumped on it! I was really impressed by this lights spec's and, as previously mentioned, its thin profile with remotely mounted ballast. I hung the UFS3000 from 18" above canopy while in veg and down to 12-14" during flower and the FastBuds Purple Punches LOVED it rewarding me with some beautifully sticky buds! The UnitFarm UFS3000 is a fantastic light for a 2x3 or 2x4 and two of them will blowup your 4x4! With a full light spectrum that includes far red AND UV along with two white spectrums, a remote mounted ballast and the thinnest board I've used that puts out minimal heat, all at a budget price point...How can you not want one of these?

Tents

What can I say...it's a tent. The seams and zippers leak light and some of the seams either started to come apart and/or leak light....and this is all from the FIRST TIME using it. I use Gorilla Grow Tents exclusively, this tent was a gift and I'm glad I didn't purchase it or I'd probably have more to say. Do yourself a favor, skip this brand :-1::skin-tone-3:… Buy a Gorilla Grow Tent and GROW STRONG!!!

FastBuds Purple Punch... Formerly 'Tester #2103'

~Grown 100% organic in a 5g fabric pot with Mother Earth 70/30 Coco/Perlite medium amended with 2tbs/g Down To Earth 4-4-4 / 2 cups/g Earthworm Castings / 1tbs/g Dr. Earth Flower Girl 2-8-4 and 1tbs/g Dr. Earth Bat Guano.
~24hr light cycle during germination / 19/5 light cycle for Veg & Flower
~Straight water ph'd @ 6.2-6.8 when needed, top dressed every 3-4 weeks and weekly Compost Tea's.

Both phenotypes were grown under a UnitFarm UFS3000 205w Full Spectrum LED with a 19/5 light cycle from seed to harvest and were a blast to cultivate.

They grew 64-67 days respectively and both produced some super frosty buds absolutely covered in trichomes which should make this an epic strain for extractions!

Neither of these Purple Punch auto's ever experienced any issues whatsoever and took everything I threw at them with aplomb and remained extremely healthy throughout the entire run, having great color and vigor. They both started flowering in typical FastBuds fashion at right about 21 days, and with their wide node spacing, produced some lovely compact round buds absolutely covered in trichomes that have a fruity/sweet aroma that hits you before you set eyes on them!

After they finished, I gave them 72 hours in the dark @ 67℉ before being hung in my 'drying room' where they stayed for 8 days @ 66℉ and a RH of 57-63%. After the eight days hanging they were ready to be trimmed up and placed into jars to cure which I like to be 4-5 weeks at a minimum which will greatly improve the taste and terpene profile!

FastBuds has hit yet another homerun with this strain. I'll be looking forward to running it again (maybe with some more wattage next time! :sunglasses:) and gladly give it my Official Canna Prophet Seal of Approval! Don't think twice, go get some Purple Punch and experience the 'knock out'! :zany_face::green_heart:

Thank you for following along this journey with me and the FastBuds 'Purple Punch'!
Growing these beautiful cultivars is always better with someone to share the experience with and I hope you enjoyed this diary half as much as I did creating it! :green_heart::sunglasses::pray:

Looks like you cut abit early, best go 2 to 3 weeks longer than recommended than what the breeder suggests for best results and yield
