Growing your cannabis outdoors can be a very rewarding experience as you get great results at a low cost. If you have in mind to set up your particular Garden of Eden next season, we recommend you to take a look at the list of outdoor genetics we have prepared here; strains specially designed to perform well outdoors.
Many of the marijuana genetics on the market today can be grown both indoors and outdoors, as they are strains with high quality standards created from long selection and breeding processes. However, choosing which strain is best suited to the environmental conditions of your outdoor cultivation can be a decisive factor in the success of your harvest.
To help you in your choice we have put together a diverse selection of the best Seedstockers outdoor genetics. Here you will find strains with different characteristics so that you can find the one that best suits your growing environment, needs and preferences.
But first, let’s take a look at the factors you should take into account when growing marijuana outdoors, as you should evaluate these parameters when choosing your strain.
Outdoors, environmental conditions will determine the course of your crop, so you should take them into account when choosing the strain best suited to the environment in your region.
These are the factors you should consider when choosing your outdoor genetics:
Indica strains are considered a better choice for outdoor growing in cold regions where summers are short. The reason is that these strains are usually ready to harvest earlier than Sativas, so they are suitable for growing in regions where harvesting must be done early in the season. Another reason for choosing Indica cannabis strains for outdoor growing is their effect, as some users prefer a more narcotic psychoactivity to help them relax at the end of the day and get a good night’s restful sleep.
Without further ado, pay attention because here are the best Indicas to grow outdoors:
This powerful Indica from the USA has a fresh and exotic aroma and flavour reminiscent of pineapple and has undoubtedly swept among the most demanding palates. A cocktail of Caribbean fruits that many growers choose to place in their garden for its outstanding qualities:
This variety is the perfect choice for those who are looking for a quality flavour and do not want to risk much outdoors. This Fast version of the most famous Girl Scout in the USA reduces the flowering period to only 7 weeks (which in turn minimizes the risks outdoors), while retaining the flavour of freshly baked pastries that has given Cookies its worldwide fame.
In addition, you will not have to worry about the quantity of your harvest, since Cookies Fast is NOT an autoflowering genetics, therefore it does depend on the photoperiod; this will give you margin to play with its size during the vegetative period. If you want bigger plants that give more production you only have to germinate your seeds earlier; the only difference is that it will complete flowering earlier and therefore the harvest will be very early.
Other reasons why you should try this jewel at least once are:
Many are the Sativa lovers who enjoy their energizing and cerebral effects, ideal to give free rein to their creativity or simply to have a good time with friends. It is true that these genetics were adapted to survive in warm and tropical climates, and that their flowering period is usually longer than that of Indicas. But don’t worry, because if you are a sativa lover and live in a northern region, we have prepared options so that growers of all kinds can enjoy this type of genetic.
Thanks to its Haze heritage, this variety produces high quality crops and is very easy to grow. So much so that many growers choose it even though its flowering period is 10 weeks, (if the climate in your region allows it, we assure you that the wait will be worth it).
The reasons to include Golden Lemon Haze in your outdoor growing are:
If you can not wait for a late harvest because the climate in your region does not allow it, and you are a lover of Sativas, we recommend you to try the legendary Amnesia in its autoflowering format.
This genetics is known to be one of the best Sativas on the market, and the automatic version has made it available to those who do not enjoy long summers. Amnesia Auto completes its life cycle in 11 weeks from germination, so in less than three months it will be ready to harvest.
But its speed does not mean that it does not live up to its name, since its parent was so nicknamed because its effect is very powerful, and in this case, its THC levels reach 23%.
Another reason to grow this sativa is that its yields are higher than average. It is a variety that with little care offers large harvests of buds full of resin with a spectacular Haze aroma and flavour.
When back in the 70’s in California the first breeders realized that they could combine the best of both worlds (Indica and Sativa strains), they changed the rules of the game forever. Marijuana hybrids offer a series of advantages in terms of resistance, stability and quality that have turned them into a tool to solve many of the problems faced by growers.
The fact is that combining the best of each house can only result in a winning combo that combines those qualities for which different strains of marijuana have stood out throughout history.
A good example of what we have just mentioned is the Super Skunk Fem, a hybrid that is very easy to grow and that stands out for its great quality harvests.
It is a genetic highly recommended for outdoor cultivation because it is resistant and does not require great care, therefore, with a minimum effort you can obtain abundant harvests of buds loaded with dense resin.
It is ideal for growers who are just starting out but who are also experienced consumers looking for a potent effect (THC levels are above 22%). Its intense and long-lasting Skunk aroma, known to be one of the most penetrating flavours of the market, puts the icing on the cake to a variety that exudes quality on all four sides.
