Depending on the flowering time of the particular strain you’re growing, your plants could be harvest-ready either by mid-winter (if you germinated your seeds in fall) or mid-fall (if you germinated in summer).

No. Unless you live in an area with very mild winters and low rainfall, we don’t recommend growing cannabis outdoors during winter, as you’ll usually end up with sickly plants and/or poor harvests.

What Effect Do Cold Temperatures Have On Flowering Cannabis Plants?

CFLs are more or less redundant during prolonged periods of cold weather, even the highest wattage bulbs available, with 300W, cannot generate sufficient heat to curb a frosty winter.

Autoflowering strains are another great option for growers living or growing in cold regions. Cannabis Ruderalis, the variety of cannabis bred with indicas and sativas that gives descendants their autoflowering properties, is native to Central/Eastern Europe and Russia, and is renowned for being especially hardy. Plus, the fact that autos can go from seed to bud in as little as 8 weeks makes them optimal for sneaking in an extra early Spring or late Autumn harvest.

LED lighting systems are rapidly overtaking HID bulbs as the cultivation lamps of choice for Millennial weed growers, but the technology is still to be perfected. LED lights run cooler, because they emit almost 75% of their energy as light. This is fantastic most of the time and usually makes for easy environmental control in the grow tent.

Although automatic cannabis strains flower not according to temperature and light conditions but according to their age (they are usually ready for harvest about 10 or 11 weeks after germination). If grown outdoors in the middle of winter they may still die or stop growing. At best, they may produce very few flowers with low THC and CBD content.

Alternatively, if they are in a region with an extremely favourable climate, they can grow in pots and then you only have to shelter them during the evening, at night, and when the weather conditions turn bad.

The answer to this question is no! Marijuana plants need special conditions to develop and flourish at their best.

Growing marijuana seeds on winter is undoubtedly possible, but not outdoors. For marijuana plants to develop outdoors in the best possible way, they need favourable climatic conditions.
