It’s crucial to have a good understanding of the climate in the area you’re going to grow. Cannabis is highly adaptable to various conditions, but it is susceptible in extreme weather.
Heavy clay soils drain slowly and don’t hold oxygen well, so they will need to be heavily amended. A few weeks before you plant, dig large holes where you’ll be placing your weed plants and mix in big amounts of compost, manure, worm castings, or other decomposed organic matter. This will provide aeration and drainage, as well as nutrients for the plants.
Choosing the best outdoor cannabis grow site
We recommend these organic fertilizers:
You can make this yourself by combining worm castings, bat guano, and other components with a good soil and letting it sit for a few weeks, or it can be purchased pre-made from a local nursery or grow shop.
Typically, outdoor growers will add amendments to soil when weed plants are transplanted outside. Outdoor amendments usually come in powder form that you mix in with soil.

• Companion planting: Plant basil, lemon balm, or dill to repel pest insects.
If you live in a warmer climate, now is the time to germinate seeds directly outside. You’ll also be able to move indoor plants outside and transplant them into soil or larger containers.
Growing outdoors usually means more space to work with, plenty of sunshine, free rainwater, better ventilation, and the joy of cultivating in the elements.
Maintaining The Plant
• Physical barriers: Erect chicken wire fences and other barriers to prevent larger animals such as deer and birds from munching on your crop.
• Predatory insects: Introduce predatory insects such as ladybirds and parasitic wasps to protect your plants against pest species.
The accessibility of balconies makes them a great place to grow weed. However, certain variables pose drawbacks that will significantly change the size of your harvest.
Also, different strains will move much faster or slower than others. Keep the individual traits of your chosen cultivar in mind.
