Fairly resistant, Purple People Eater can grow almost anywhere. However, growers have more control indoors where adjusting factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity to tailor to the plant’s needs is easy. One can lower the temperatures, for instance, to keep its tips and burning off. Doing this during the flowering period, on the other hand, will bring out its beautiful strips of purple and azure undertones.

Lighting is essential when cultivating cannabis. It improves bud development and may even assist in the plant producing bigger yields. In this regard, indoor growers may opt for HID lights during the flowering period.

Outdoor cultivators, on the other hand, may simply rely on the sun. This particular source of sunlight contains multiple advantages that indoor lighting could not provide. As such, it should come as no surprise that plants grow bigger and produce vigorously when grown in gardens or farms. With the right care, of course.
