She smells like citrus lemonade.


Definitely lemon/lime comes through on this variety, in the dried flower and on the exhale.


I have been burping my jars for 30 days now and wow what a beautiful delicious citrus smell. The past week the jars have become a lot more aromatic and pungent when I open them now.

She has a rich, creamy chocolate flavor to her. Yummy.


Tasting like lemons with a hint of grapefruit. Also has some slight backtones of grape. Definitely a unique citrus taste you normally don’t encounter.

Purple Lemonade Auto Seed-to-Harvest Time

The total time needed to complete the life cycle of Purple Lemonade Auto ranges between 8 and 20 weeks with 10.6 weeks on average. The most common cycle duration was 10 weeks (in around a quarter of grows), about a quarter of timelines being shorter and almost a half requiring more. The grow time in the vegetative stage was more consistent: with slightly less than a half of plants spending 4 weeks in veg (which was also the strain’s average) and significantly more shorter veg durations than longer ones.

Outdoor grows of Purple Lemonade Auto are much rarer than indoor ones. We only managed to find information on 16 such grow cycles that lasted 10.6 weeks on average.

We tried to see any patterns in how this strain reacts to different growing mediums and training methods in terms of how they affect the cycle duration. You can see the relevant charts above. In general, we are seeing no rhyme or reason in this data, with probably one exception: hydroponic grows tend to last longer for this strain. The reason why remains unclear, and your guess is as good as ours.

Purple Lemonade Auto Flowering Time

Purple Lemonade Auto’s flowering time varies between 4 to 15 weeks with an average of 6.9 weeks. The most common flowering duration was between 6-7 weeks in 202 grows. The sample size for outdoor cultivation is traditionally small. In the 16 grows that we managed to find, flowering took 7 weeks on average.

Plant Height vs Pot Size Statistics ©GrowDiaries.com


We analyzed data to see if plant height depended on growing conditions. Untrained plants were expectedly taller on average, LST was the most consistent method of keeping plant size in check (with one exception), while topping led to slightly more varied outcomes.

There was a clear tendency for the plants to be smaller in soil and coco coir and somewhat taller when grown hydroponically. Pot size doesn’t affect final plant height as much as one would expect: you can detect only a weak up-trend when you go from smaller to bigger containers, but when you look at the results for the most popular pot volumes, they can be all over the place.

Yield figures varied significantly for different growing mediums, with hydroponically grown plants yielding 133g, those grown in coco – 88g, and those in soil – 64g.

The productivity also depended on the type of training employed: no training resulted in both the lowest- and highest-yielding plants (obviously depending on other factors), growers who used low-stress training methods got results hovering around the average but with quite a few high-yielding outliers, and the yields for topped or FIMed plants were generally way above average and more consistent.

The 11 outdoor plants for which there’s data yielded around 52.1 grams on average.
