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 Europe?
Yes, you can grow outdoors in Europe. 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:
Europe is one of the continents that make up the Eurasian supercontinent. In addition, due to its vast territory and geographical location, it can be divided into four climatic zones:
Firstly, this type of climate is found in northern Europe. Secondly, the countries that have this type of climate are: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland. In addition, also in mountainous areas such as in the Alps, Pyrenees, Massif Central of France.
This type of climate makes the conditions for growing marijuana quite hard, the cold reigns. Therefore, long and cold winters. In addition, short summers.
First of all, it covers the interior of the European continent and the interior of the Iberian Peninsula, so we can locate it in the Spanish Plateau, and in the interior of France, Germany, all Central Europe, the Balkans, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Russia.
This type of climate is characterized by temperature contrasts between seasons. First of all, summers can be hot. However, winters are dry and cold. Moreover, in the summer months, there are usually storms with frequent rains.
First of all, this type of climate covers all countries close to the Atlantic Ocean, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and parts of Spain and Germany have a maritime climate.
This type of climate is characterized by high humidity and frequent rainfall. Therefore, it has cool summers with some heat waves and mild winters.
Firstly, this type of climate covers all southern European countries. Secondly, countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and the south of France, have this characteristic climate, with hot and dry summers and mild winters. In other words, it is a perfect climate as frosts rarely occur in winter.
In addition, we must be clear about the area where we live. We must take into account other important factors in outdoor cultivation in Europe. First of all, temperature and sunshine hours are very important. In addition, the location where our small seeds of the STEVE`S ALIEN OG will later become big cannabis plants.
Depending on the climate we leave you several points to take into account:
First of all, countries with this type of climate have to take into account that summers end quickly. In addition, the days become shorter and shorter. Secondly, you have to take into account the days you have to cultivate. Thirdly, we recommend strains with a flowering time of 60 to 90 days. Finally, remember that the higher the altitude, the lower the temperature.
As a tip, protect your plants with tarpaulins for cold nights or have a heating system.
Firstly, countries with this type of climate where summers are hot and winters are cold, it is important to select vines that withstand these seasonal changes. Secondly, because of the summer rains and the humidity that occurs, it is important to select strains that are resistant to mildew. Finally, due to the strong winds that occur in this climate, selecting medium to small size marijuana plants will be the best choice.
First of all, countries with this type of climate have a high humidity produced by the proximity to the sea and rainfall. Therefore, it is important to select strains resistant to mold.
Don’t be afraid of mildew on your plants. By training and good aeration, you will achieve better air circulation and avoid mildew.
Secondly, in some countries their growing period is shortened due to this climate. Therefore, it is important to look for strains with short flowering periods. Finally, we advise you to germinate your marijuana plants indoors, due to the low temperatures that occur during the night. In other words, better to be safe than to lose our precious plants.
First of all, it is one of the most perfect climates to grow our marijuana plants. Secondly, this type of climate is ideal for its good temperatures and low rainfall. However, we must take into account the heat waves and high temperatures that can occur in some countries. Finally, we advise you to place your crop in areas with air currents for those hot months.
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 EUROPE 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 EUROPE.
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.
Finally, it is a perfect strain to bake in the late afternoon after a hard day’s work. Besides stimulating and relaxing it works to reduce stress, depression, pain and arthritis.
