In the early 90s, feminized cannabis seeds were introduced and since then, they have dominated the cannabis market. Of course, the feminized seed has its advantages. This means that you could actually maximize the growing environment and save on time by using these strains.
However, when you are a commercial grower, there is no point in keeping a male cannabis since females will have higher flowering times. In fact, females tend to produce flowers that will only produce one or two harvests in their life span.
To keep a good harvest for both, it would be important for you to have a lot of plants. That way, you won’t have to deal with too much harvest time. Even if a plant has low flowering times, it still yields a lot more in overall yield.
However, this also means that you will have to devote a good amount of time to tending the plants. Aside from that, these plants need time for the flowering phase and a good amount of time before it starts to produce fruits.
Indica strains tend to have lower flowering times. In fact, some have even been reported to start flowering after two years of age. Sativa on the other hand, tend to flower more quickly and produce higher yields. And because the plants have more foliage, it will help you reap more of the benefits of sunlight during the day while the plants are dormant during the night.
There are so many reasons why regular seed strains are more suitable for indoor growing. However, the best option is always going to be growing your own cannabis as this will give you a sense of control over the results.
Growing your own indoor marijuana also gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment. When you grow your own cannabis, you will be able to save your money and time to buy seeds, fertilizers, growing containers, and more. You can even choose your own type of growing medium for your plants and how you want them to look and smell like.
However, not all of us have the time and expertise to grow our own indoor marijuana. For this reason, there are several ways in which you can grow your own cannabis. Even though it may take a bit more effort than just going out and buying seeds from your local store, it still doesn’t come at a very high cost. Plus, you will never feel guilty that you are using your efforts to grow your own cannabis.
You can either grow your cannabis outdoors or indoors. Both options will yield different benefits but the biggest advantages are probably that it’s free, it’s less expensive, and you can control the environment.
In case you want indoor marijuana to grow up to a certain height, you can even grow it outdoors during colder months. This way, you won’t be bothered by cold weather and pests such as insects and bugs. Plus, you can even grow it inside your home and you can save money on electricity bills.
On the contrary, if you want to grow outdoor marijuana during warmer seasons, you can grow it inside during cooler months and it can still get a good yield even without spending too much money. And with an indoor marijuana, you can grow it at any season of the year.
