Purple Maroc is a strain that is intended for cultivation outdoors. It is derived from a cross of Purple Power with a particularly heavy-yielding, aromatic Moroccan female plant. The combination of two early outdoor strains is a sure winner for growing at higher latitudes and altitudes.
Purple Maroc is a superbly aromatic plant which grows long, slender buds which have a somewhat open structure. Mould and damp resistance is good with this strain. In the northern hemisphere they should be sown outdoors from mid-April to Mid-May. Female Seeds advise against beginning these plants indoors as they claim that this strain is semi-autoflowering and they will begin flowering too soon if this advice is not adhered to. The plants require the long days of summer complete with warming rays of the sun to keep vegging until mid-July when flowering will start to develop.
Plants grow to a height of between 150 - 200 cm. tall and produce good yields after a 50 day flowering period. Harvest in northern Europe should be sometime in the second half of September. Some of the plants will exhibit lovely purple colouration and all will have a thick coating of resin. The flavour is similar to that of Moroccan hash and the effect is a very pleasant body-stone.
About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
