It seems that indoor growing technology is all the rage these days. But many growers, especially those with decades of experience, still prefer to grow where growing comes naturally – outdoors. If you want to step away from the tech and get back to simpler times, it makes perfect sense. Here are five reasons why you should grow weed outdoors.
Forget bumping your head on fixtures, or tripping over wires in a small space. Growing outdoors means no more cramped shuffling in limited size rooms. Expanding an indoor grow means serious investment in equipment and eventually floor space. Outdoors, it just means adding another row in the garden.
When plants start to get big, which every grower hopes for, indoor spaces get crowded. Outdoors, plants thrive with more space between them. They get more light to lower branches, and growers have an easier task when it comes time to harvest.
2. Air, light, and water
Indoors, fans and lighting systems try to mimic what nature has already perfected. Outdoors, all a grower has to have is a good grow location. Nature provides the breeze to keep limbs strong and problems from latching onto the plants.
Most of the time, it even provides water for free. In dry regions, watering an outdoor garden is still cheaper than building one indoors. Besides, who wants to spend all that time setting it up?
3. Nutrients and quality
Indoor growers have to supplement their plants with nutrients on a regular basis. This is because once plants exhaust what is in the container, they begin to starve. Potted plants will always be limited by the threshold of root lock, as seen above. But let the green ladies go bottomless, and they can stretch those roots into the earth to find what they need. Deep-rooted plants also grow stronger and resist damage better.
Growing outdoors, given decent conditions of natural soil, means less ongoing supplement needs. Starting with a good compost, experienced growers can stick to watering for the rest of the season, and save both time and money.
4. Environment and safety
Outdoor grows are also better for the environment if done properly. Rather than pumping up your electric bill, and the output of power plants that love your money while they add to the growing emission and waste crisis, plants grow outdoors with no emissions.
In fact, the more plants the world grows outdoors, sucking up CO2, the better. Plants filter the air and contribute to the ecosystem. As long as growers stay organic, and avoid chopping down forests for space, their net impact is generally a positive one.
In addition to saving energy emissions, outdoors growers require fewer nutrient additions. One growing concern in major cities is the number of chemicals that enter the water system. As long as outdoor growers stay organic, and avoid chopping down forests for space, their net impact is always a positive one.
Indoor grows pump a lot of electricity through their lines, and that presents a fire hazard. That’s why legal states create such stringent permit and inspection laws. Add all that electricity to the close proximity of water, and hazards increase even more. Outdoors, the need for electricity is null, and the hazard costs drop to sunblock for one’s skin and bug bites.
Technology doesn’t grow on trees. It costs money, and with today’s ever-advancing pace, it usually costs a lot. An indoor setup requires the grower to replace everything found in nature for free out of their pocket. The most expensive and important cost is lighting. High-quality lighting for an indoor grow range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Scaling up a grow can run even higher.
Don’t forget the hydroponic systems, temperature controls, ventilation systems, supplemental nutrients, fans, wiring, and all that electricity. Mother Nature grows cannabis for free outdoors, and it grows just about anywhere. That’s why it’s called a ‘weed’. If one has space and isn’t concerned about legal issues, growing outdoors is the way to go.
