From Blimburn Seeds, we bring you the best tips and tricks. Also, we are committed to all growers in the world to maximize their outdoor growing production. In other words, we will make you an expert grower and lover of our seeds.
Why choose NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO?
First, because NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO is a mostly indica variety, characterized by its good vegetative development of thick central stems, as well as its lateral branches. Also, crossing Northern Light x Lowryder we have obtained a plant with a shorter flowering time
Second, this genetic are compact in size, due to their short internodal distance and the flowers tend to be compact and hard with a lot of resin.
For this reason, it is special for growers who want discreet crops, since it takes up little space and in outdoor cultivation it is completely discreet, so you can grow it on balconies or terraces in complete safety.
However, we do not forget the most important thing. It has an indoor flowering period of 9-12 weeks, but we recommend 12 weeks for optimal maturation. Also, outdoors you can harvest your harvest from April to October.
Do you think you can grow outdoors in USA?
Yes, you can grow outdoors in the USA. 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:
In the first place, given the great geographic extension of the United States, different and varied types of climates can be found in different areas of the country for the cultivation of marijuana. Also, from the tropical to the cold and dry climate. Being, in general, the southern region the most temperate and the north the coldest.
In other words, the areas around CANADA are colder.
Also, to be clear about the area where we live. We must take into account other important factors in outdoor cultivation in USA. Firstly, the temperature and hours of sunshine are very important. Also, the location where our small seeds of the NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO will then become large cannabis plants.
The main types of climates in the country are:
Humid continental climate:
First, it covers mainly the north of the country. Marijuana growers have mild winters, but there are frequent strong drops in temperatures due to the arrival of polar air, producing frequent snowfalls on the highest peaks. Rainfall usually occurs in the summer, which is usually hot and humid.
In the first place, a factor to take into account in this type of climate is the genetics of our plant. If a strain is genetically less prone to mold, you will have less trouble growing your marijuana. In addition, it is important to have a good location for your cultivation and prune to have an aeration zone.
Affects the central United States, from east of the Mississippi River to the vicinity of the Rocky Mountains.
First of all, in this type of climate we have no problems with rain or snowfall. However, high temperatures are a problem. In other words, just like humidity, you must keep your growing areas aerated. In addition, very dependent on irrigation.
The western United States, from southern Alaska to California, has a temperate climate with high moisture content, which causes winters with abundant rainfall.
First of all, it is a climate in which it is important to select marijuana seeds with rapid flowering. In other words, heavy rains can ruin our harvest.
Typical of central and southern California. Climate similar to that on the Mediterranean coast of Europe, with mild temperatures. This considered microclimate is due to the influence of the Pacific Ocean and the proximity of the Rocky Mountains.
First of all, one of the best climates for growing marijuana. Second, it is a climate very similar to the South of Spain.
Subtropical humid climate:
Covers from the southern half of the west coast to Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico and Florida, including some inland plains. The temperatures are warm all year round and the humidity is very high. In South Florida the climate can be considered monsoon with frequent hurricanes.
First of all, this type of subtropical climate is perfect for the development of our marijuana plants. In addition, the temperature is warm throughout the year. However, due to those monsoons and hurricanes, we must have good facilities, structures or cages. In other words, it is better to be safe than to lose the harvest due to strong winds or rain.
Dry subtropical climate:
The areas with this climate are Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona. Great deserts abound there.
First of all, being such a dry climate, the location where we are going to grow our marijuana is important. In addition, it is important to prepare the cultivation soil to provide our plant with sufficient nutrients. It is also important to condition the area with large fans and water abundantly to create more humidity in the environment.
Hawaii’s own climate. It is characterized by its mild and constant temperatures of around 24-25ºC throughout the year. The rains are generous, which favors a very peculiar type of flora and fauna.
First of all, it is a climate that has a perfect temperature for growing marijuana. However, the continuous rainfall can be a small problem when the flowering stage is reached. In other words, our marijuana plant will appreciate the first rains in a vegetative state. But once they are in bloom, you have to protect them with a canvas or plastic.
Climate of Alaska:
The state of has different climates. On the coastline it is temperate. But in the rest of the territory it is sub-arctic, with low temperatures and high humidity, the minimum in winter easily reaching -30ºC, which causes areas with abundant snow and ice.
First of all, this type of climate is the most extreme. Second, it is important to wait a little longer to take our germinated plants outside. Third, when September rolls around, marijuana plants begin their flowering stage. Finally, when October has arrived, it is important to move the plants to the greenhouse due to the strong drops in temperature.
Also, this calendar with its hours sun and temperatures. Firstly, it’s important to prevent. In other words, growers in northern USA areas must have canvases in the event of sudden rains or cold days.
The medium where we grow our NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO 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 NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO.
Firstly, photoperiod 20/4 is very important for the development of any autoflowering plant. Secondly, at the Outdoor point we reflect how many hours of light our EUROPE-grown plants receive. Finally, outdoors, most autoflowering strains will naturally enter flowering in an automatic way.
When the NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO enter in flowering, need 18 hours of light and 6 of dark
The autoflowering plants in general start the flowering in the 4 or 6 week of life and finish all the process between the 10 to 12 weeks of life.
Firstly, NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO is a quality strain and many growers have confirmed to us that it can be grown perfectly in any region of the USA.
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.
For NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO is not necessary to abuse the nutrient, when you grow outdoor, with a minimum of ml of fert per liters of water the plant can feel great.
The best nutrients for NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO are the organic fert, because when you grow outdoor is better the fert of slow-release.
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.
In this last point, we highlight the importance of NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO for your health.
First of all, it is a mostly indica strain that induces extreme body relaxation, sleep and a lot of peace. This makes NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO perfect for people who need to relieve body aches or symptoms related to fibromyalgia or migraines.
