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?

Buy Strains

  • 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

Location

  • 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

  • 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

Remove males

  • 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?

Young male buds look like balls. There are 50% male and 50% female. Remove all the males and in 2 to 4 months, it will be time to harvest.
