Cannabis can be grown outdoors, efficiently, even if you reside in cold regions. Growing outdoors in sunny parts of your yard is a far more easier than planting them indoors.
How to set an outdoor marijuana crop?
- Outdoor cultivation cannabis seeds are specially bred
- These strains need less time to reach flowering stage
- Cannabis strains are more resistant to moisture and mould
Start in spring
- Marijuana plant will grow all through the spring season, and in the first two weeks of summers
- The female plant growth slows down, as it focuses on flowering
Germinating cannabis seeds
- Plant seeds twice the number of plants you need to grow because some may be male plants and a few may not germinate at all
- Baby marijuana get eaten by snails
- They can hardly bear the humidity and cold
- Keep the pots inside and when they grow big enough, place them outside
- You can allow them to grow in pots or plant them into the ground, directly
- Choose proper growing location like a garden, terrace or balcony
- Standing water nearby can poison local aquifer, so select the crop area ten paces away from it
- Clear the weeds, if any and plant marijuana seeds in the exposed earth you dug or fill pot with growing medium
- Planting in pots allow you expose them to sunlight as and when needed
- Growing medium needs to hold adequate water
- It is recommended to use 50% potting soil, 15% vermiculite, 10% guano and 25% peat
- Add beneficial insects like worms to the pot. They keep the growing medium loose and airy by pushing itself around
Allow plant to grow
- Plants are now ready to do all the work
- More sun means faster growth
- Water them regularly and avoid overwatering
- In 3 to 4 weeks use fertilizer
How to water?
- Cannabis needs moisture and in case there is no rain then water it regularly
- Moisten the growing medium up to one inch starting from the first pot
- As you finish moistening the last pot, the water in the first pot will get absorbed, so water it once again
- This allows to moisten the medium gently, a lot of water can damage the roots
How to use fertilizer?
- Fertilizer selected needs to be plant food like tomato fertilizer
- Follow dosage recommendation strictly
- Overuse can kill or harm the plant growth
- Watch them daily and if you see leaves turning yellowish or light-green add fertilizer
- Male marijuana has low THC level
- Their buds are not tasty
- If you don’t remove them the females get pollinated
- Pollinated females concentrate in developing seeds ignoring the buds growth
- Ultimately harvest decreases
How to identify male marijuana?
