CSI: HUMBOLDT - Mendocino Purple Urkle

So the story of purple goes...
"Purple, the name and the colour, comes from a dye made from the mucus glands of a tropical sea snail, the murex (porphyra in Greek, purpura in Latin). This discovery is attributed to the Phoenician god Heracles, the guardian deity of the city of Tyre. One day his dog bit into a murex shell and its mouth immediately turned purple. His companion, the beautiful nymph Tyrus, declared she would sleep with the god only if he dyed her a garment in the same shade. Heracles obliged and the famous Tyrian purple dye was born."

That moment portrayed in a 1636 Painting by Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens here.


The Phoenicians were the first to have and lust after Purple, even their name comes from purple- Phoenicia= Land of Purple. The Egyptians sought it, the Greeks revered it, the Romans hoarded it and now I'm looking for that Purple.

So in the hunt for Purple strains two have always caught my eye, Mendocino purple aka Purps and Purple urkle. Nspecta has been on the boards for years, always been honest and detailed in his stains. You do some digging on these two lines you are bound to see his pictures on the boards, like here.

When Nspecta crossed these two together he made my decision easy, Mendocino Purple Urkle- Mendocino Purple(female) x Purple Urkle(reversed female).



The Greeks had a verb for thinking deeply, "kalchaino" Meaning I search for the Purple fish. Thousands of years later I'm still searching for that Purple.

7 female seeds total, 4 26 days old and 3 16 days old. Nice fat leaves with deep serrations, all fairly slow vegging out of the gate.

Lets jump right in with a group shot then each individual.

Feel free to post up any CSI:Humboldt gear here. I think Nspecta donated some beans to Stank Bros upcoming fundraiser drop here on Seedbay, if I'm not mistaken.
