Growing hemp indoors vs. growing hemp outdoors
For those lucky enough to have options, you may want to understand the ups and downs of each planting method. Of course, depending on various factors, each method has advantages or disadvantages. Where in the world do you live, how much space do you have, whether you can afford the indoor equipment, etc. It also depends on your experience with plants, because some forms of growth may be more unpredictable than others. The easiest way to figure it out is to look at each planting method, make some comparisons, and see which one is best for you.
This can be done in many ways, from a plant in the cabinet to full hydroponics. Depending on your budget, you can set up an impressive growth space indoors, especially if you have a spare room or a decent loft. However, even if you only have one bedroom cabinet, you can still grow some impressive plants.
Avoid the elements- When you grow up in your heart, you don’t have to worry about nature. In some countries/regions, the outdoor environment will be stable, but in other countries/regions, the predictability will be less. Strong wind, freezing rain or extreme heat can completely mess up your plants.
control – This is of course related to the needs of the shelter. As I said, the outdoors can be unpredictable, and drastic changes in humidity or temperature are a super fast way to get your plants to work. You can also control the amount of light shining on the plants without worrying about an extra sunny day or a completely cloudy day. By maintaining your own optimal growing conditions, you can ensure that your plants reach their full potential.
Annual growth- Growing outdoors means you can only do it in the season when conditions permit. Indoors, you can literally grow at any time of the year, it doesn’t matter.
Prudent- For some of us, putting our plants in the garden for neighbors to see is not ideal. If you want your crop to be your little secret, then it will definitely be better to grow it. If discretion is important, I will avoid planting indoors in the attic because snow or birds will often send you away.
Cost- Of course, growing indoors is much more expensive than growing outdoors. When planting indoors, you must create a complete planting space, including lighting, heat, fans, soil, reflectors and countless other equipment. As you progress, the cost will only increase. In addition, due to the need to use a large number of machines, anything can fail at any time.
Growth light and sunlight- Unfortunately, we do know that grow lights cannot be better than sunlight. When using grow lamps, the lack of ultraviolet radiation is the main problem. This is not a huge scam, but it is not ideal.
Sunlight– I know we have just discussed this issue, but it is still the absolute advantage of outdoor cultivation. No lighting system can match the absolute energy of the sun, that’s for sure. Compared with artificial light, real sunlight has a much greater effect on plants. The sun contains a lot of ultraviolet radiation, and a lot, which is great for plants. When the plant is in real sunlight, the buds will develop better, smell better, and taste better.
space – Usually when planting indoors, the space for plant growth is limited. Unless you happen to have a complete spare room or a huge shed, you can only put some plants into your planting space. Outdoor planting means that the root system can spread and the plants can grow to their satisfaction. You can also plant companion plants to prevent pests. Improving plant diversity is great for your cannabis plant.
cheaper– Of course, if you grow outdoors and don’t need to buy all the equipment, the whole equipment will be much cheaper. Most of the things you need are provided by nature, so this is definitely a better choice for people who are struggling.
nature – The biggest advantage is also one of the biggest disadvantages of outdoor cultivation. Sunlight and vast outdoor spaces are great for plants, but other aspects of nature can be a nightmare. If the wind is too much, too hot, too cold or too humid, then your plants will have a bad time, as we mentioned in the advantages of growing indoors. Interestingly, there is a lot of overlap between the advantages of one and the disadvantages of the other. If you can’t always pay attention to your green baby, then outdoor planting may not be suitable for you.
Pests—— When growing outdoors, pests can be one of the bigger problems. They can devour plants in absolute time. They can cause problems that are difficult for growers to spot immediately, so it may be too late when you see them. There are many different types of pests, from bugs to mammals looking for snacks everywhere. If you don’t use nets, birds will also mess up your crops.
weather – Of course, where you live has a big impact on whether your growing up outdoors is a good idea. If you live in an area in the world with long summers, plenty of sunshine, low wind, little rain, few storms, etc., then you can definitely grow outdoors. However, if you live in a place with bad weather, you are a bit messed up, because if the weather gets crazy, you can’t really move your garden.
So these are the basic pros and cons of growing indoors or outdoors. Hope this will let you know which one is best for you.
