Grow Tips & Strain History

Reasons That Purple Caper Rx Seeds Are Superior

  • There are many reasons but most important is the Fathers.
  • Father selection is very important. All fathers are best of 50 of that strain, which is known to be of the best quality genetics.
  • Purple Caper Fathers are bred to improve the females’ genetics, so the seeds will be better than the mother.
  • If you like a particular strain then try it crossed with a Purple Caper father.
  • Once you try the seeds you will see the difference in vigor, potency, yield, smell, and flavor!

Q. 1 - Why are Purple Caper Seeds Rx. different?

     Purple Caper Seeds are grown with the patient in mind. There are 100 seeds sprouted on each batch a mix of Californian, Dutch, and Canadian mostly. The strongest are chosen, “Last time it was 3 males and 2 females”. These strict standards are met to ensure the strongest offspring. Once the Best are chosen they are crossed with all of the best local strains found in Northern California.
Seeds will yield better than clones, and make better mother plants, and they are only way to get a phenotype which no one else has. However If you do not remove males it could ruin your whole crop. Which is why it is easier to use clones.
Yes they are, but beginners should grow clones with them so that they can distinguish a male or hermaphrodite from a female. Probably try a couple the first time along with some clones to get familiar.
An F1 is a first time cross of two different strains. This is what creates an F1 strain. These are the most vigorous and have the most variation between plants. An F2 is a male F1 seedling crossed with another F1 seedling of the same strain. Some of these will be more stable while others not as stable or vigorous as the F1, but some are, also some may take after grandparents.. F4 is the most stable and is created by crossing the F2 andF3 back to the same female from the F1 batch. These are around 85% homogenous.
A Phenotype is the characteristics of an offspring. When you cross two plants say a Short dense indica with a slender sweet smelling sativa you will get many Phenotypes. Some will be large and dense like the indica with a sweet sativa smell and taste. This is one Phenotype. Others will be slender like the sativa and short like the indica. I have seen many distinct Phenotypes from one cross, that is why only the strongest should be kept.
I would plant 10-20 to find an exceptional female with all the best qualities that does the best in your garden. Take this and mother this and you now have an exclusive phenotype of this strain that you know no one else has. These websites that sell 1 seed is a big reason why sometimes you receive weak clones. If they only sprout 1 seed yes they do have the strain, but it may be a weak phenotype, and should not have been cloned.

Germination Technique for Professional Results

Show Me!

There are many germination methods. All work well. This technique if done correctly should achieve almost 100% germination. Always germinate indoors. Room temperature around 75 degrees is optimal. Use bottled drinking water at room temperature, not cold or hot. It is best to keep bottled water indoors at room temperature for 24 hours before use.

  • Fill a clean shot glass half full with room temperature drinking water and add seeds.
  • Place shot glass indoors in a dark place like a top shelf in a closet for 8-24 hours and No longer.
  • After soak, place seeds in a seed starting kit, and follow instructions on package and moisten with bottled water. I recommend grow sponges.
  • Keep at room temperature in dark for 24-48 hours. Next place indoors under a light until ready for transplant.

Happy Growing!

  • 7. May 1st put light on 18 hrs and complete darkness for 6 hrs per night.
  • 8. June 1st Place plant outdoors in a good location for that strain.
  • 9. This will be the permanent location and plants should now be transplanted directly in the ground in a properly prepared hole, or 25 gallon pot or bigger and kept outside for remainder.
