Why choose STEVE`S ALIEN OG?
Because it is a high quality strain named after the legendary Steve DeAngelo, one of the founding fathers of the legal cannabis industry.
Steve’s Alien OG Feminized is an indica dominant strain. It has its origins in the mighty Alien Kush and Tahoe OG. In other words, this magnificent strain leaves no marijuana grower indifferent. Moreover, with a citrusy and dank taste, accompanied with spicy notes.
Finally, growing outdoors is a good option in dry, sunny and warm places. However, Steve’s Alien OG, like most of its OG relatives, flourishes on the west coast and other places with a Mediterranean type climate. In other words, since the weather can be fickle, watch for any sudden changes. Some growers have a canvas canopy ready in case of drizzle, while others are willing to move the plant indoors temporarily.
Harvest begins in mid-October in the northern hemisphere and April in the south.
Do you think you can grow outdoors in the UK?
Yes, you can grow outdoors in the UK. First of all, please read our seven points carefully. Also, don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions or to place your seed order. Finally, after this introduction we start with the tips and tricks:
United Kingdom, is a great island and has oceanic climate. Also, its geographical location makes its climate changing. What’smore, depending on which region of the UK we will have a different climate. Therefore, we will describe the four regions and their different climates to grow our STEVE`S ALIEN OG.
It is a perfect area to grow STEVE`S ALIEN OG. Firstly, this area has cold winters. However, the summers are sunny, dry and pleasant with a lot of heat. In other words, ideal temperatures for outdoor cultivation. Summers are sometimes warmer by the masses of hot airs coming from Europe.
It is another perfect area in the UK to grow our STEVE`S ALIEN OG. Firstly, there are mild but humid winters. Also, the summers are usually warm, but with a lot of Atlantic climate with clouds and rain. Therefore, mild conditions allow for a longer growing season than in the far-north regions.
In this area cannabis growers experience cold winters and summers. Therefore, they tend to be colder and grayer than those in the south. Also, the predominant atlantic air masses can bring rain and wind almost all year round. In other words, cannabis growers and lovers from this region can find the late weather in September and October less friendly for cultivation. In conclusion, our STEVE`S ALIEN OG is a perfect strain because in mid-September you can pick your crop.
In this area growers should take into account climate constraints. Also, the growing season is shorter compared to southern growers. Therefore, winterscan be cold, spring can take a while to arrive and summer is short. Finally, we must grow strains with a short flowering period. In conclusion, STEVE`S ALIEN OG has a fast flowering period almost comparable to any self-flowering seed.
Also, to be clear about the area where we live. We must take into account other important factors in outdoor cultivation in the UK. Firstly, the temperature and hours of sunshine are very important. Also, the location where our small seeds of the STEVE`S ALIEN OG will then become large cannabis plants.
Next, a temperature calendar and hours of sunshine during the different growing months:
- January February. Firstly, these two months are very important to look for a good growing area. Also, see the orientation of the sun.
• Hours of Sunshine in March: 11 hours • Average temperature: 2–10 ºC.
• Hours of Sunshine in April: 13 hours • Average temperature: 5–14 ºC
• Hours of Sunshine in May: 15 Hours • Average temperature: 8–16 ºC
• Hours of Sunshine in June: 16.5 hours • Average temperature: 11 –20 ºC
• Hours of Sunshine in July: 16.5 hours • Average temperature: 14–22 ºC
• Hours of Sunshine in August: 15.5 hours • Average temperature: 12–20 ºC
• Hours of Sunshine in September: 13.5 hours • Average temperature: 10–18 ºC
• Duration of the day October 1: 11.5 hours • Average temperature: 8–14 ºC
Also, this calendar with its hours sun and temperatures. Firstly, it’s important to prevent. In other words, growers in northern UK areas must have canvases in the event of sudden rains or cold days.
The medium where we grow our STEVE`S ALIEN OG is important. Firstly, we have to be clear if we are going to grow directly on land or on pots.
If we grow our cannabis seeds in pots, we have no problem since we will use any soil on the market that is already fertilized and with its fertilizers.
Finally, if we cultivate directly on land. We advise to condition the soil first. In addition, remove the surface soil about 10cm and add worm humus to ensure the growth of the plant, red guano or dry bird guano, which you can buy in any garden store, to guarantee a great flowering and trichodermas, beneficial fungus for the protection of the roots and stimulate the microbiotic life of the soil.
These fungi will be your allies to get robust and high-yielding plants.
In conclusion, our culture medium is very important to obtain large resin buds from our STEVE`S ALIEN OG.
Firstly, photoperiod 12/12 is very important for the development of any plant. Secondly, at the Outdoor point we reflect how many hours of light our UK-grown plants receive. Finally, outdoors, most strains will naturally enter flowering when there are less than 15 hours of light daily.
Very important situation for daylight hours. Also, or just as important is light pollution. If our plants need 12 hours of light, they also need 12 hours to sleep.
Firstly, STEVE`S ALIEN OG is a quality strain and many growers have confirmed to us that it can be grown perfectly in any region of the UK.
In other words, we are very proud to work hard for great results. Also, it is a plant that grows vigorously when we provide quality nutrients.
Finally, we reached the most anticipated point. After a long time of cultivation comes the harvest. Now it’s time to harvest your marijuana, the result of your effort is near.
Firstly, the best time to cut our marijuana plant is when several factors appear.
- Color change of the pistils. Firstly, pistils are born white. However, as harvest time approaches, they change from white to brown.
- Color change of our leaves. Firstly, we will notice how the leaves start to pick up a yellow color. This is due to the lack of nutrients and is a trigger for our marijuana plant to be ready.
- Observe the trichomes. Observing trichomes throughout the plant stage is important. Finally, the change from crystalline to amba color is a big trigger that our marijuana plant is ready to be harvested.
Firstly, Steve’s Alien OG is an indica dominant strain. Secondly, it has a quality lineage that makes it a potent strain. In addition, its effects provide an energetic and creative stimulation. However, as time passes you will feel a deep body relaxation.
