Growing Marijuana Outdoors is Fun and Healthy

Growing marijuana outdoors may be fun if you are fortunate enough to be on the state program that allows you the privilege of growing good marijuana. You may find a good marijuana video on the internet offering free growing marijuana tips.

Another good beginners guide to growing marijuana is offered by book dealers. One of them is called Ed Rosenthal’s Marijuana Growers Handbook, and it tells all about growing marijuana outdoors, and indoors. The photography is outstanding.

If you are growing medical marijuana, you will need to select a good place in your yard for your garden if you are going to be growing cannabis outdoors.

Growing Marijuana Outdoors It should have full sunshine for 6 to 10 hours a day in the summer. Your plants should be spaced 3 feet apart in both directions when your growing marijuana outdoors.

If you intend to plant directly into the ground, you will need to loosen up the dirt for about a foot deep and rake out all the big rocks and dirt clods.

This will take a bit of an effort, but if you’re the outdoor type, it will be more fun than work.

And if digging is not your thing, you can use a large pot for each one of your plants. You must realize that plants grown in pots never have a chance to get really big like plants that are started from seed and planted directly into the ground.

Plants that are planted direct have a taproot – this root grows underground, straight down, seeking the water table. This is the difference between BIG plants and average size plants.(more explained in this video).

If you invested in a cannabis grow guide, be sure to read it before you get started – it will give you some good marijuana growing tips on growing marijuana outdoors.

When growing marijuana outdoors, water should be handy to the garden area.

A large tub or container should be used to run water into, the day before it is needed for watering, so it can set for 24 hours before it is used.

If you are using chlorinated water, setting overnight allows the chlorine to escape. Chlorine is hard on these plants.

After setting overnight, it works well when growing marijuana outdoors. Check soil PH  and add only a mild fertilizer when it needs it.

Make sure if you are using pots that they have good drainage. If they don’t have drainage, they will get diseased and die. Clean water and good drainage are a must for growing.

Water plants only when they are dry, (about every other day unless it has rained) and water heavy when you do. Plants like to get a little thirsty before they drink but like to drink hardy when they do.

Each plant is a little different from each other, so when one looks dry another may not be, and some drink more at one time than another.

If you have planted seed directly into the ground, after they have reached the adult stage you may not need to water anymore because they are getting plenty of water from underground.

You are only allowed a certain number of plants, depending on which state you live in.

This number is few compared to the number you may hear street people use that tell about their wild growing. But their gardens are illegal, and yours is not.

So be glad you live in a state that will allow you a few plants but don’t be misled into thinking you are really legal – Uncle Sams watching, and he has a gleam in his eye.

The State seed bank for marijuana under the state program can sell you seed. They can only furnish them for people on the state program.

Clones can often be bought for $20.00 each from your caregiver. Caregivers may even allow you to buy some marijuana from them until your plants are ready to harvest.

These young clones already have roots and are of the right strain for your purpose.

All these clones are female, so you won’t have the trouble most wild growers, out in the country have with their male plants ruining their crop. Outdoor marijuana growing with clones gets you off to a good start. Read more in our post here:

Planting seeds do have a benefit over clones for outdoor gardens.

They have a deep taproot that goes way down to the ground after the plant reaches its adult stage – this root searches out the water table, and you don’t need to water it much after it reaches that stage.

The taproot also helps the plant grow very big – holding it stable in the soil. Seeds also offer protection against pests and disease – a built-in feature of marijuana seed.

Clones don’t have a taproot. Their root system is side-roots. Not very stable in windy climates, and the whole plant is limited in its growth.

The clone offers all the good qualities of the mother plant – but also inherits all her negative qualities too – such as pests and diseases that might not be obvious at the tender age of a clone.

There is a company on the internet that sell seeds that they guarantee as, – feminized female seed – offered in a number of different strains.

One disadvantage with seeds is most of the strains being offered have been developed for recreational purposes instead of medical purposes. Before buying any of these strains be sure of what you are getting.

Growing marijuana outdoors is sometimes more difficult than it looks – some people have resorted to growing marijuana indoors only to discover that has its drawbacks too. It is good to experiment with growing marijuana and how to grow weed both indoors and outdoors is easy to learn.
