Growing Cannabis Plant at the Outdoors

By Simi A Mira March 8, 2015 77 Views No comments

It is possible to grow cannabis both at the outdoors and indoors, even just about anywhere. Nevertheless, choosing to grow cannabis in the outdoor setting will entail different challenges than that of growing it indoors. It is therefore vital to acquire knowledge on how to deal with these challenges for successful cultivation of marijuana if you wish to enjoy quality produce and yield. 

Growing Cannabis

The weather condition, which you have no control of, is one of the challenges of growing cannabis outdoors. An erratic change in the weather is inevitable. Either the sun will choose to heat the earth on a scorching level or the clouds decide to pour its rain nonstop; the weather is simply out of your hands; not only in day but temperature could drop or skyrocket at any time. Moreover, realistically speaking, keeping watch of your plants 24/7 simply isn’t possible. With that, you cannot really stop animals, insects and pests from attacking your plants.

However, on a positive note, many still choose outdoor cultivation for their cannabis. This is due to the fact that although challenges of growing cannabis outdoors may be present, there are still the advantages that may even outweigh the said challenges at the end. Here is to mention a few:

Offers the much needed sunlight

Just like all the other plants, cannabis requires sunlight for at least five hours each day to thrive. What could be more needful than placing them outside to catch direct sunlight? Planting them outside is the best way to go so the cannabis plant can achieve photosynthesis and bear their product and food; as well as produce other nutrients that the plant itself needs for sustenance and growth.

Offers the right kind of soil

The most appropriate type soil for growing cannabis is organic soil with a pH of 6.5. The soil must have the capacity to retain moisture and nutrients for a long time.

To be able to improve the quality of marijuana plants, many cannabis growers opt to add additives and nutrients into the organic soil. Anyone can carefully research which of the nutrients are needed and study to find information regarding soil use, to enhance the quality of the produce.

Offers Outdoor Space

Lastly, growing cannabis in the outdoors provides many options as to where exactly in the garden it will be planted, either at the back or front yard; on a greenhouse or even some other space outside far from your house that you find suitable.

Planting the cannabis plant at the lot within your residence could be beneficial since you will be able to access the cannabis garden immediately when needed.

In addition, you will also be able to follow and witness its development with ease.

Though planting a marijuana plant in the forest cannot offer the same accessibility as that of planting it in your yard, it can still be an option for those who intend to hide their marijuana plants from other’s prying eyes.

All about the Biddy Early

By Simi A Mira March 6, 2015 178 Views No comments

With such a name as Biddy Early, this strain of Cannabis is definitely interesting. The history associated with the name dates back to ancient Ireland where it was supposedly the name of a witch. This gives the Biddy Early a strange aura that mixes the historical with the magical. Perhaps it does have some parallels to the modern concerns of Cannabis around the world today.

All about the Biddy Early

Characteristics

The Biddy Early was developed by Mague genetics and was one of the early pioneer strains of Cannabis. This makes it a strain that has been used for quite some time now.It’s qualities make it almost exclusive for outdoor growth. It comprises of an exact equal ratio of sativa and indica and this ratio is where it derives it’s outdoor characteristics like flexible and almost bendable branches. This equal ratio gives it other traits which will be discussed later.

It’s flexibility makes it a natural for outdoor growth. The branches make it easy to train and grow almost anywhere. Even stormy regions will not deter this strain’s growth as it is rather sturdy and flexible. The flexibility of the branches however make it unfit for indoor growth. It’s innate flexibility makes it a poor choice for indoor growth and this sometimes is a concern for growers with limited space available. The plant will always need a lot of space to bend and stretch itself. Keeping this in mind, make sure to have ample garden space if you fancy growing this strain.

Flowering of the Biddy Early 

A lack of environment to grow or nutrient deficiency can lead to stress for the plant. This in turn will result in early flowering. A maturation phase of 10 weeks occurs after the flowering period. During maturation, it grows to average size. It also produces around 300 grams per square meter which is pretty good for an outdoor plant. 

A sweet smell and a tingly sensation 

The Biddy Early is known for it’s very strong yet sweet smell. The strain produces a very pronounced and recognizable scent. It is well known for this scent, and it is produced early before harvesting. The smell is very strong yet sweet to the nose and this scent is produced because of it’s merging with the sativa and indica strains. 

The Biddy Early does produce a strange sensation when taken. When ingested, it is reported to produce a buzzing or a hot and tingly sensation around the ears. This is a rather strange sensation and can sometimes be unexpected, however the overall high, more than makes up for the hot sensation around the ears.

Popularity and Awards

The Biddy Early is actually quite popular, especially in Europe. This popularity is growing over time and continues to grow. The strain has actually been awarded several times. These awards are fairly recent. It bagged first place in the sativa category of the High Times Cannabis Cup of 2003. It also garnered second place in the Highlife Cup of 2004.

Growing cannabis outdoors can be fun and exciting, despite all the hard work and effort that you have to invest in it. If you are planning to start your own outdoor cannabis garden, here are some useful tips that you might want to know:

1. Find the best location for an outdoor grow site. This does not mean that you have to buy a new land or have a spacious one. If you have a backyard, you can clean it and transform it into a garden. You can also probably look at your rooftop and decide whether it can be made into an outdoor garden or not.

2. Check the soil and have it tested if it has the right pH level and nutrients for cannabis plant growth and development. If it does not, you may add some additives to enhance soil quality.


3. Make sure that there is a water source nearby. You will need to water your cannabis plants at least once a day if they are cultivated outdoors, so get a water hose long enough to allow you to water every single plant in the garden.

4. Light is also an important factor in the proper growth and development of the cannabis plants, so make sure that the area allows enough sunlight to reach the cannabis plants.

5. It is important that you maintain the cleanliness and orderliness of your cannabis garden to minimize insect and pest attacks and mold infestations.

Using the unique hydroponics way of growing your cannabis

By Simi A Mira March 4, 2015 105 Views No comments

Using soil is the most common method of growing your cannabis or marijuana. But, did you know there are actually other methods in order for you to grow your cannabis? A new way known as hydroponics is what many people use today in order to grow their marijuana. 

ways of growing your cannabis

What exactly is the hydroponics way?

The hydroponics way may sound complicated, but its actually very easy and very fun to do. Since this method is unique from other methods, your main growing medium will not be soil as is with most growing mediums and methods. Other mediums can create a healthy environment for your cannabis plants. You will be needing these other mediums in order to do the hydroponics way of growing your cannabis. This may sound intimidating, but with enough practice and time, you'll be able to like this method even better than convensional methods of growing cannabis.

The essential nutrients needed for the hydroponics method

There are 16 nutrients a cannabis plant must have in order for it to grow healthy, like other marijuana plants. You have to be certain that the cannabis plants you are growing will obtain all these nutrients, or else they will die or have deficiencies. Fortunately, these nutrients can be obtained by buying them from a cannabis store. After purchasing the nutrients, you will have to produce a substance that is composed of approximately 99% water and 1% of the said nutrients. 

How to do the hydroponics method correctly

In order to do the hydroponics way correctly, the plants you will be growing will need a lot of light for them to produce high quality yield. Remember to place many lamps or lights in order to replace the plant's need for sunlight, since the hydroponic method is usually done indoors. Do not buy lamps that produce too much heat, as doing this could kill your plants by drying them up and burning them. Sudden increases of temperature is natural, so an effective ventilition system would be a great idea. Depending on how old or mature your plants are, the hydroponics method usually uses an average temperature of 15 to 30 degrees celsius. Do some research and observe your plants; if they have reached a certain stage or phase, it might be time to adjust the temperature for them. So long as you have done all the right things for your cannabis plants, everything should go well.

Your plants may take a few weeks to reach full maturity and the time it takes for them to reach maturity purely depends on what type of cannabis seed you planted using the hydroponic method. The key to producing high quality cannabis is by keeping an eye on key factors such as the nutrients, the air in the room when growing them, the light and the heat the light gives off, the temperature in the room and the water used to plant the seeds. Remember that a person who grows cannabis and does his research and caring for his or her plants really well will eventually enjoy the fruits of their labor when the season ends.
