While all cannabis seeds can be cultivated both indoors or outside, in general, most strains prefer one, or the other. Indoor strains tend to be hybrids, containing percentages of both Indica and Sativa genes. Indoor feminized cannabis seeds grow best under controlled conditions, benefiting from a 12/12 light regime when flowering.
Growing cannabis outdoors in Australia is how many people begin, taking advantage of the ambient climate. Many outdoor strains contain high levels of Sativa genes, which usually require a slightly longer flowering period, often growing taller than most of the indoor hybrids. Cannabis plants grown outdoors will flower as the seasons change, and the daylight hours naturally reduce.
Autoflowering seeds have become extremely popular with outdoor and guerrilla growers over the last years, flowering and maturing regardless of the number of daylight hours the plants receive. Sometimes referred to as ‘throw-and-grow’ seeds, they are perfect for fast, high quality harvests with the least amount of time and effort.
