Indoor vs. Outdoor: How to Grow the Best Weed Imaginable

When choosing whether to grow weed indoors or outdoors, we consider lots of factors: from local climate to marijuana cultivation policies. But regardless of the method you use, your main goal remains the same: get the most out of your cannabis plants. Here are a few weed growing tips for both indoor and outdoor gardens.

How to grow the best weed indoors?

Growing marijuana indoors usually requires more resources: electricity, water, nutrients. It is expensive; in return, you get an opportunity to harvest more than one or two crops a year. Plus, the are various solutions that help you cut the bills and make your indoor facility more environment-friendly.

If you want to get perfect weed buds in the end, here is what you should pay special attention to:

Quality soil―in contrast to an outdoor garden, when you grow marijuana indoors, you are free to choose the type (and quality) of the soil. You may not even use any soil at all by switching to hydroponics. But even if you prefer to grow weed hydroponically, choose only high-quality hydro mixtures.

An increasing number of marijuana growers prefer hydro mixtures to the traditional soil. Hydro mixtures are better for indoor cultivation as they allow to control the amount of water and nutrients added to the plant. These potting mixtures are less likely to develop mold or insects, so growers have more chances to cultivate healthy plants and get high yields.

Nutrients―by using the right nutrients, you can prevent your cannabis plants from different diseases and improve the quality of your crop. But be careful: too many nutrients may be just as harmful as the lack of them.

How to grow good weed outdoors?

Some people think that it is easier and cheaper to grow good weed outdoors. They are right, but only partially. For example, if the weather is cloudy for a long time, your plants wouldn't receive all the light they need in order to grow healthy and become ripe fast. Early frost or strong wind with rain can also put your entire crop at risk. So, here are a few things that you need to take care of when growing marijuana outdoors:

Additional lights―outdoor cannabis plantations receive most of the light they need from the sun. But be ready to install and use additional lighting in order to make your weed plants grow faster.

Water―cannabis is a very thirsty plant, and it requires a lot of water. The bigger your plants are, the more water they need. So, make sure to pick a location for your plantation with a water source nearby.

Nutrients―even when you grow cannabis outdoors, you still need to use certain nutrients in order to make your plants healthier, stronger, and bigger.
