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 ORKA?
Because it is a variety which will be easy to grow in the first place. In addition, it is a strain with a sativa dominance, crossing Haze x White Widow. In other words, thanks to the genetics of the White Widow, anyone who is starting in the cultivation of cannabis can grow our magnificent ORKA.
Our ORKA is a strain that from its first days of flowering will surprise you with strong citrus aromas. It is also a plant that grows vigorously with an emerald green color that becomes a small Christmas tree that can reach up to three meters in height if you grow it outdoors. In addition, a crystalline mantle envelops all the flowers creating resinous and sweet buds.
Secondly, it is a plant that can reach 800 gr/plant. In other words, if you are going to grow our ORKA outdoors, prepare some structure to help the branches that support large flowers. In addition, its flowers are compact and in about 60 to 70 days it is ready for harvest, that is to say in mid-October.
Finally, we can say that it is a quality strain with a citrus and sweet aroma that melts on your palate and its effects go directly to the cerebral cortex providing a relaxing, social and lively stimulation.
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 ORKA 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 ORKA 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 ORKA.
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 USA-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, ORKA 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.
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 ORKA for your health.
First of all, it is a mostly sativa strain that works mainly on your brain and leaves you in a very high mood.
In addition, at the end of the trip with ORKA, you will feel a smooth, relaxed descent, which allows you to forget the stress after work and have a good time, either alone or with someone.
On the other hand, the lemon and citrus flavors give you sensations of freshness that will allow you to fly to new places.
