Outdoor strains are those that perform the best in outdoor environments. Those strains are the result of decades of painstaking crossing and experimenting with some of the best land-races and hybrids around. The key of these varieties is that they reach maturity and end their flowering phase much earlier and faster than most of photoperiodic strains available. As a matter of fact, these outdoor varieties will flower under low light conditions. In turn, this makes sure that the harvest won’t be affected by harsher climate conditions. Those outdoor strains are very well suitable for indoor setups too. However, they will perform at their best under the natural sunlight. They are capable of reaching impressive sizes and heights in a very short time. These outdoor strains have also a solid reputation for being very big yielder.
Special Outdoor Cannabis Strains
Outdoor cannabis strains were bred to perform extremely well in any outdoor environment. These strains are also called semi-auto varieties. In fact, those plants will start flowering under low light conditions (i.e. with 16-15 hours of sunlight), thus making it possible to be cultivated even in harsher climates with shorter summer seasons. In a few words, early maturing and fast flowering.
Appearance of Outdoor Cannabis Cannabis
Outdoor cannabis strains are early maturing and fast flowering varieties. They can be either hybrids, or show Sativa or Indica dominance. Some of them might grow to great heights (Easy Sativa and Purple Maroc) and show typical Sativa features. Others might stay short, yet bushy (Maroc, Critical Sour) resembling more their Indica lineage. Others (Red Purps) will sit in between the two.
Growing Outdoor Cannabis Strains
As said previously, those strains reach maturity early, growing fast and vigorous. They show strong resilience and can handle well pest and diseases. They are not heavy feeders, nor demanding plants in any way. An important feature of those is their blooming phase, notoriously short, which will start between mid-July and early August in the Northern hemisphere.
