Location, Location, Location!

One of the most important parts of growing Marijuana outdoors is location, if you have your own land then look for a secure fenced area that will have Southern exposure. Discretion is also very important as it will allow you to work without anxiety or onlooking neighbours. The other thing that should be considered that is a Cannabis plant requires as much sun as possible, so pick a spot that is free from overshadowing landmarks such as trees or buildings. The rate of growth and ultimately your yield will suffer if your plants are in the shade during the hottest parts of the day.

This way he avoids running the risk of losing a seed by planting in harsh environments, and gives his outdoor plants them the best possible start. Once a Cannabis plant reaches a height of 15 to 60 centimetres during the vegetative phase, you can be confident it will adapt to well to an outdoor environment. By June 21st, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter, so this is a key time to have your plants outside.
