The best outdoor weed plants are therefore preferably easy to grow species with a high mold resistance. By choosing an easy to grow strain which is resistant to fungi and fits the climate in which you want to grow, you avoid a lot of problems and will increase the chance of a successful breeding considerably.
Outdoors you can’t influence all the living conditions. Yes, you can choose the soil and provide water, but you can’t influence the weather, while the weather is the most important factor for the final result. Growing outdoor marijuana plants is therefore generally more difficult compared to indoor growing.
1. Blue Dream
A strain that can be bought in almost every Dutch coffee shop is the Power Plant. That isn’t without reason. The Power Plant features qualities that are important for commercial growers and is definitely one of the best outdoor strains. High yields, a short cycle, easy to grow and a very powerful high quality weed. Although many commercial growers grow indoors, the outdoor yields can exceed up to 750 grams per m2.
The crossing of none other than Amnesia Lemon and the Afghani Kush makes this strain a true pleasure. Although this strain is less known than its colleagues above, the Amnesia Lemon Kush couldn’t be missing in this overview with the best pot seeds for outdoors.
In our top 5 you find the best weed seeds to grow outdoors. The presented strains are easy to grow and can be harvested between September and October. If you choose one of our best marijuana seeds for outdoor growing the chances are big that your plants will get through the rainy autumn and that you will be rewarded with high quality weed and good yields.
Another great choice if you need a super-fast autoflowering strain to beat the bad weather is Easy Bud. Similar to Royal Dwarf, but with a few genetic differences, this girls shines with good yields and a moderate THC level. Plant your seeds, and she will soon be showing off her ripe, juicy buds in a short 8–9 weeks post-germination. With 12% THC, Easy Bud is just the perfect strain if you enjoy a mild high that won’t knock you out. Staying at a compact height of 60–100cm, the strain can yield as much as 80g of citrus-flavoured bud per plant.
Sun, sea, and outstanding outdoor sinsemilla. If you are living around the Mediterranean, you are also spoiled with choices. Although, cropping cannabis strains resistant to bud mould is probably advisable, especially if you’re a novice cultivator. Unfortunately, thick, tight colas and high humidity don’t mix.
Remember to reference weather data before choosing your seeds. If you find yourself limited to less than three months total crop time, you really only have time to grow very fast autoflowers during late spring/early summer. To be on the safe side, grow in containers so you can take your plants inside if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
ROYAL HAZE AUTO
It would be a shame not to dabble with some fine photoperiod strains in a warmer climate. How about some organic, soil-cultivated OG Kush or Sour Diesel goodness to have your ladies growing into great ganja trees for some truly monster yields? But do keep an eye out when growing in these hot climate zones, as the scorching sun can be too much for plants to handle in excess. Shade, rather than shelter from rain, may be required. Watch out for heatwaves! Here are our favourites when growing in a hot and dry climate:
Beginner growers can gain experience with some gourmet warm climate autoflowering varieties. In fact, the next-generation RQS auto hybrids are also a great option for more experienced growers looking to double-crop in a single season. Royal Haze Automatic and Northern Light Automatic immediately spring to mind as winners in a warm climate. All you have to decide is whether you prefer indica or sativa-leaning stash.
Quick One is one of the first market-ready autoflowering cannabis varieties, and was once one of the fastest strains you could grow. She is still blazingly fast, taking only 8–9 weeks from seed to harvest, which makes her an excellent choice for those with a short summer season. This compact plant won’t get taller than 50–60cm, yet will reward you with a decent yield of up to 150g/plant. She may not be the most potent cannabis, but 13% THC still produces a very relaxing stone. She has a fresh, herbal, and citrusy aroma and a pleasantly mild taste.
But don’t get too complacent with sativa genetics as they too can succumb to mould and fungus. Check the weather and be at the ready to harvest from September onward should the rain come early. Here are our recommended Hazes to grow in a hot and humid climate:
When selecting a cannabis strain to grow outdoors, speed shouldn’t be the only concern. It’s also important for plants to be productive, to have a good aroma, and to induce a pleasant effect once smoked.
