In growing marihuana, it is very important to identify the appropriate strains that can grow on a specific climate. Take note, however, that this only applies to outdoor growing of marihuana. This is because, with indoor growing, you can expect to plant your chosen marihuana strain pretty much anytime of the year. That is the advantage of growing in an indoor environment, because you can simply alter the needed requirements of the plant regardless of the climate outside the growing area.
Mediterranean / Sunny Climates
Strains that can grow in this category are the ones that may be grown in an outdoor environment under a sunny and warm climate. They are also preferred in places with longer summer. In the northern hemisphere, there are many locations that are below 45N. At the same time, all the locations that are below 40N will offer a good climate for any marihuana strain to grow in an outdoor environment. On the other hand, in the southern hemisphere, all the locations may be considered sunny and warm. Generally speaking, all strains can be grown in a sunny and Mediterranean climate.
Continental / Temperate Climates
The strains under this category may be grown in an outdoor environment in a standard warm summer. This may include many places that are under 50N and all climates below 45N. Among the strains under this category are:
- Skunk #1 Feminized
- White Label Purple Bud Feminized
- Northern Lights Automatic
Cold / Cool Climates
The type of strains that fall under this category are typically the earliest flowering and undoubtedly the toughest strains in the cannabis world. These strains are able to grow in an outdoor environment in short summers at far northern latitudes. These strains are sometimes especially bred for growing n an outdoor environment in the far north, and so they are capable of flowering even at latitudes that are above 50N and even in certain cases, as high as above 60N.
Identifying the strain according to the climate in your area is very important in order to make sure that you are not just wasting your money for a strain that does not have the capability in the kind of environment that you may be living in. Make the most out of your investment by making sure that you are growing the strain that perfectly fits your locality.
