Outdoor marijuana growing – Climate

Marijuana weed cannabis growing

Marijuana outdoor climate

Each area of the world in which weed is grown produces seeds and, eventually, marijuana that is distinct to both its climate and the preferences of the grower. Marijuana grown in the tropics tends to have tiny leaves, with an abundance of flowers, while Middle Eastern, and central Asian varieties will usually feature long broad leaves and dense buds. These differences may be important to note. The size of the leaves has a lot to do with the strength and consistency of the sunlight. Larger leaves are essential if your light is weak since they have more surface area with which to trap the sun’s rays.


Knowing where a cannabis plant has normally been grown may prove beneficial to your own efforts. Growers in Florida, or other humid subtropical areas such as Louisiana, Texas, and along the Gulf Coast, may wish to capitalize on climate by planting tropical marijuana types. Some people might prefer to stick to a hardy stock like Mexican, which comes in many varieties and colors, or perhaps Jamaican weed, which is extremely hardy and durable.

It is important to remember that climate and the particular strain can only tell you how well a marijuana plant might flourish in your area. For instance, it might not make sense to plant a Hawaiian variety like Maui, if your growing season is shorter than its native habitat, exposing it to less than optimal levels of sunlight or an early frost. Though the plant will produce a smokeable yield that will get you high, even in suboptimal conditions, the size of the cannabis plant before harvesting may be small and consequently your yields will be smaller than desired.


If you’ve smoked different varieties of weed, you’ll notice that the highs can differ greatly. Some highs feel happy or dreamy whereas others may take a longer time to set in and make you feel sleepy. Then there are the bad highs, or the ones that give you a headache, a sore throat, or make you feel paranoid. This should be your real guiding principle when choosing marijuana seeds.

This is an issue of chemistry and the best way to replicate the good highs and avoid cultivating the bad highs, is to obtain marijuana seeds from the stuff you like and also to cure the bud properly after harvest. This is relatively easy because seeds are, to many growers, the useless by-product of growing. Depending on the methods used by the grower, there could be many seeds left over. There are also online companies that offer seeds with photo galleries that show the potential outcome. As with any online purchase, the responsibility is yours to investigate the legitimacy of the company. Also, knowledge of the law regarding the purchase of possession of seeds in your area is important as it may be illegal to possess cannabis seeds.

Besides light, water, temperature and fertilizers the genetics of the marijuana seeds are very important. Bad genetics can never produce high quality marijuana.

  2. You have message from me on your mail that you have putted link for. Please answer it as soon as you can :) thank you :)

  3. Hello, I wish to know which strains would be optimal to grow outdoor in a far northern climate (i.e. nd, wis. ,minn.). Preferably a very hardy, fast growing crop due to short periods of the year without frost.
