Cannabis Seeds Outdoor
What seeds are suitable for the outdoors
Hemp seeds for the outdoors produce viable and unpretentious plants. You can artificially create a comfortable temperature, humidity and bright light in a greenhouse, but outdoors, nature takes care of that. Therefore, the air can be too dry, the wind can be strong, and the temperature can fall below the acceptable. To prevent the plant from dying and losing productivity due to stress, choose crops for the outdoors that are accustomed to the climate of a particular area.
Indica and sativa in the outdoors
Prior to cannabis cultivation, sativa grew in warm, humid climates and indica grew in cool, arid climates. This influenced their appearance and rate of maturity:
Sativa plants are tall, with a receding root system, thin stems and narrow leaves so that moisture is not trapped and evaporates as quickly as possible. Sativa takes a long time to mature - the end of flowering is in October. This is also helped by the warm climate, where there are rarely frosts in the fall;
- indica is bushy and compact, with branched roots, a dense stem and fleshy leaves to store moisture. Indica plants tolerate temperature changes better because they grow in mountain climates. The indica ripens by the end of September.
- Each climate has its own type of cannabis. For warm regions with mild winters and close seas, sativa varieties and sativa-dominant hybrids are better suited. For temperate climates, regions with short summers and early frosts, indica or indicodominant hybrids are recommended. Also suitable are balanced strains, where the ratio of indica to sativa is about 50/50 in phenotype. The advantage of these seeds is the pronounced properties of the sativa with the high viability of the indica.
Autoflowers, photoperiodic and express varieties
Photoperiods of all three have the longest life cycle - the sativa matures by mid-October and the indica, depending on the variety, by early or late September. Therefore, for regions with short summers and early frosts, it is recommended to buy autoflowering or express marijuana seeds for outdoors:
The life cycle of autoflowers is limited to 10 weeks on average. In less than 3 months, the plant will go through the growing and flowering phases. Autoflowers are also more resistant to adverse weather conditions, fungus, mold and pests.
Express varieties are a development of Kalashnikov Seeds. They are photoperiodic plants, but their life cycle is shorter due to the faster development. Blossom already in September.
Resistance to various diseases is another useful property for the outdoors. Plants for outdoor cultivation should be as unpretentious as possible, especially if this is the first such experience.
