Best Soil for Your Outdoor Seeds
Since you are growing your cannabis plants from seeds, it's advisable to germinate your seeds indoors, and then transplant them outside. It would be best to use growing containers such as fabric pots to make transplanting smooth. But if you live in regions where the weather is warm, you can do it outside. You need to know that it will take longer for them to germinate in cold temperatures.
When growing outdoor seeds, you need the right soil mix. And since your outdoor plants prefer soil that is slightly acidic with adequately drained organic matter, ensure that you have the soil pH test.
If you are using a container, you can purchase soil from a garden store and remember to add the required nutrients. Some of the best soils for outdoor weed seeds comprises:
- Clay-rich soil
- Sand-rich soil
- Silt-rich soil
Outdoor seeds perform well when you add organic fertilizer to your growing medium before planting and throughout the plant's growth cycle. They improve the aroma and flavor of the buds. Organic fertilizer includes:
- Kelp meal
- Blood meal
- Worm castings
- Fish meal
Choosing Outdoor Seeds
When you are growing seeds outdoors, climate plays a vital role in selecting the cannabis strain. Most outdoor weed seeds thrive in warm and sunny environments. But we are all not lucky to live in sun-kissed California. Therefore, the marijuana strain you select has to be best suited for your region.
