growing marijuana in winter?

Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:05 pm

I was just wondering, if it's a stupid or good idea to start growing marijuana strain like this in forests nearby my hometown now..Autumn is coming and the plants won't be ready to harvest for 100% sure before winter comes... But will they survive the winter and start growing in spring? I probably won't be around in springtime when i usually would put out the seedlings in the forest.. what do you think?
Thanks for your input!

I wouldn't grow cannabis anywhere where you don't have access to check on your plant daily, or routinely. (Cannabis, by the way is the female marijuana plant; hemp is usually the name that refers to the male plant). Odds are that your plant will not survive the winter to grow in spring, for a couple reasons.
First, cannabis is an annual plant, meaning that it grows, flowers, seeds, then dies to never return.. Unless you take cuttings (clones) from your plant while it is still in its vegetative state, or you plant a new seed.
Second, your cannabis plant relies heavily on the light cycle to determine how it will grow. Long days of good bright spring/summer sun will allow your cannabis to flourish in its vegetative state, provided it has ample access to water and proper nutrients. Once the long summer days begin to dwindle and grow shorter, and the light becomes less intense, will your cannabis begin to move into its flowering phase (the flower, or bud, is the product you want).
So beginning your cannabis grow in the autumn will cause you to have plants that have barely been allowed to veg and grow, and they will be forced into early flower, resulting in a less potent plant with much less yield.

All in all, I would only grow cannabis in an environment where you have total control over the growing conditions. I.e. indoor growing under a light. That way you can control how long your plant stays in veg, making it as big or little as you want, and you won't have to worry about someone stumbling across your crop and stealing your hard work, or pesky porkers (depending on where you live/grow).

Hope this helped!

Growing marijuana in winter shouldn't be a hassle. But there are strains like ruderalis that make growing better during colder months. Cannabis strains that are ruderalis or auto flower take 3 months from seed to harvest and are more resilient to the cold. If your aussie like me, Go thru for autoflower or ruderalis cannabis seeds.
