With its sunny climate and long hours of sunshine, Australia has a great climate for growing cannabis outdoors. Most people beginning by growing a few plants outside, as it’s the cheapest method possible, requiring little equipment, taking advantage of the sunlight and fresh air. Often cannabis seeds grown outdoors will become very large, and can yield huge individual harvests. The only draw-back is you will have to wait for the daily hours of sunlight to reduce for the plant to begin flowering.
Alternatively, growing cannabis indoors allows far more control over the plants environment. Flowering can begin as soon as you wish, simply by reducing the lights to a 12/12 ratio, allowing for several harvests to be produced per year. In general, indoor grown cannabis is of a higher quality than more naturally grown, outdoor varieties.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds have grown in popularity of the last few years, with a variety of strains now available. Perfect for outdoor growers who want a fast, simple harvest, they grow and flower simultaneously, reducing the time from sprouting to harvest to approximately eight weeks. Often referred to as ‘throw-and-grow’ cannabis seeds, they are all feminized and perfect for discreet outdoor growing.
