Strain: Nerds (Purple Urkle [Mendo Purps phenotype] X Sour Diesel)

Experience level: Intermediate

Yield: 400-900g/ 1000W

Female: Purple Urkle

Male: Sour Diesel

Classification: 40% Sativa/ 60% Indica

Flowering Time: 50-65 days

Desirable Traits

  • From mother: Fast vegetative growth, heavy yield, true purple flowers, fast flowering time
  • From pollen donor (Sour Diesel): Heavy yields, distinct/familiar smell, high resin production, vigorous vegetative growth, large flowers, and moderate/dense flowers.

Undesirable Traits

  • From mother: Low THC content (17%)
  • From pollen donor: Instability in late flower

I would look for a phenotype that…
Has similar yield as both parents, but with increased potency coming from the Sour Diesel. You should start seeing the purple begin a week after true flower set, with winning phenotypes getting as purple as the Urkle.
