Tropical Purple… Some strains are just cut a little different from the rest and Gulupa is one of those strains. An exceptional Cali hybrid, leaning to the indica side, it is a vigorous plant displaying great versatility and resistance.
It is a real stunner in the grow space with its striking purple colors and thick trichome glaze. Strong and uplifting (20% THC), it is the exceptional terps profile which will impress, with its unique layering of taste textures.
Gulupa is a Purple Kush x Gelato 33 cross. The Kush provides the vibrancy of the plant’s colors and also the minty earthiness which underlines the base flavor. From the Gelato side comes extra sweetness and a citrusy tang, along with a euphoric sense of energy.
This is an extremely aromatic plant in the grow room. The aroma is an intense summer cocktail of citrus and tasty fruits with hints of strawberry and passion fruit.
In the taste department, Gulupa will tantalize terpene aficionados with its intricate flavor puzzle which is difficult to define. What is not in doubt is the intensity, flooding the mouth with full bodied flavor and lingering on the tongue. At the foundation there’s a strong hashy earthiness, overlaid with passion fruit freshness, citrus, berries and hints of spice and mint. Exclusive, original, exotic, Gulupa is a taste sensation that needs to be experienced.
Difficulty Level: Medium
Gulupa is a medium sized plant, versatile and quite forgiving. It displays vigorous growth, achieving medium heights in the grow room. It’s bushy in structure, and multiple bud sites proliferate from its many branches. These swell with heavy, chunky buds which will be a surprise to growers familiar with the typical (smaller) flower production traits of its parent plants. It is recommended to prune this plant after about 5 weeks of flowering and lollipop the lower branches, leaving about 30 cm stem from the base.*
A great outdoor plant to grow, Gulupa will reach heights of 2 metres in Mediterranean zones where the sunshine will fuel its aromatic display and big bud production. It is also recommended for exotic lovers growing in northern regions, displaying excellent resistance qualities.
*As with all exotic strains, the flipside of more potency and flavor is that plants can be more susceptible to hermaphroditism when stressed. For this reason keep a close eye for pollen sacks on lower branches and use the above lollipop technique to stop any issue developing.
Gulupa is characterized by the purple colors which sweep through the plant as it progresses through flowering – from the vivid intensity of the magenta and plum tones of leaves surrounding the bud sites to the purple highlights streaking the buds. Flame red pistils add a fiery flourish to the beautiful buds which look like freshly prepared delicacies; fat, juicy and packed with crystals.
