whats a good strain for me???
    #99421 - 07/31/08 09:37 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

I was just wondering what you veterans opinions are on outdoor growing for maximum potency and yield?

I keep wanting to try to find a good type for me to grow like 20-30 plants and have a good yield, but I don't want to sacrifice potency either.

Anybody have any suggestions? please list strain for outdoor grows...
I'm not worried about hiding large size plants. I have plenty of space at my disposal.

I am growing from bag seed this year... seems to be working out with the four plants I have... But I want more for next year with good potency results.

if your in the south go sativa... such as skunk#1 or some sort of haze

if you in the north go indica.... such as blockhead, sweet tooth 1.1, afghani#1, hindu kush.

if you're in between get a hybrid of some sort.

indica or indica dom then.

afghani#1 and hindu kush would be good picks.

you could get away with something like white widow even.

Yeah, I have been looking at those strains...

Say, what makes the difference for growing in my area... between sativa and indica?

sativas require a very long flowering time.  when you're outdoors, your flowering period is limited by the time between when daylight hours begin to reach 12/12 and the first frost of your latitude.  sativas would likely not finish in time at your location.  indicas have a much shorter flowering time compared to sativas, and are able to finish flowering at more northern locations.

If I were to grow indoors, what temperature range would I have to maintain?
I am thinking I want to try a few plants hydroponically this winter just for kicks... to see how it goes.

Generally you want it to be ~75F during the day period, and no less than ~65F during the night period.
