Chronicology 101: Growing Outdoors
If you are contemplating growing marijuana outdoors, we recommend that you do it. But, there are a couple of things that you should consider first.
If someone finds your crop, you will probably not end up benefiting from your hard work. Depending on who they are they will take it or they will try to get you in trouble with the authorities. So, where you decide to grow is very important. Your location should be secluded, but not necessarily remote. If you know of a location in the woods that people don’t frequent that might be a good start. However, the further away form civilization you go the further you have to carry all of your supplies.
The heaviest of all your supplies is water. So, your growing location should be very close to a source of water. If you are growing in the wilderness, close to a lake or a stream is a good start. However, you need to make sure that your site gets as much light as possible in order to get the maximum yield possible. The sun is the best source of light you could use for growing plants, however if your plants are only getting 3 hours of direct sunlight everyday you won’t have an impressive yield.
Beyond that, we recommend breaking up the soil with a shovel before planting seedlings. And, definitely start the seedlings inside first and allow them to bulk up a little bit before putting them outside. Once outside, you might want to protect them with chicken wire, animals like deer honestly enjoy eating marijuana. This we know from personal experiences. You don’t want to check on your plants too often because you will wear a path into the dirt, but check your plants every few days or once a week. Try to go in between rain storms, your plant won’t need water everyday, but you don’t want its growth to be stunted from a lack of water.
If you have any questions, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Good luck and congratulations on deciding to undertake possibly one of the best decisions of your life. Their is no feeling that is more rewarding for a stoner than to be smoking some pot that you grew yourself.
