Cannabis Strains Ideal For Greenhouse Growing

Outdoor marijuana growing is arguably still the best mode of growing marijuana.  But the many limitations inherent in outdoor growing is discouraging in most instances so the more safe and secure indoor cannabis growing method became more popular.  There are still those who use the outdoor method but to an improved degree such as the greenhouse cannabis growing medium.  Greenhouse marijuana growing is actually a combination of both indoor and outdoor cannabis growing.  It is a form of outdoor growing because it does not rely on the use of growing lights to hasten the weed growth as it mainly uses the light coming from the sun.  It is an indoor form of growing in the sense that the ganja plants are not exposed to the harsh environmental elements and the indoor temperature can actually be regulated to the desired level.

High Yielding Marijuana Strains

marijuana seedsMarijuana growers differ on the ideal cannabis strain that they want.  Some prefer those strains with high potency, strains that are for indoor or outdoor growing, those with the shortest flowering period, and such other characteristics.  There will always be those meticulous enough and will always demand for a particular trait that is applicable only to some ganja strains.  One distinct characteristic of a marijuana strain that is being looked upon most of the time by growers is its ability to produce high yield.  Even if the weed is said to be potent, if the produce is very low, then it is just a waste of time and money in certain instances because growing marijuana requires a lot of both and the ultimate compensation must necessarily come in the form of marijuana yield.
