What preparations to make when growing marijuana seeds indoors and outdoors?
Indoor growing of marijuana seeds will require the grower to set-up additional equipments such as artificial light since sunlight is lacking and ventilation fans to keep humidity and temperature at the standard level. To maintain discreteness while growing indoors, an odor control system may be needed, depending on what kind of strain is being cultivated. For marijuana plants that produce pungent odor, activated carbon filter is good to use. If the plants grown produce only mild marijuana odor, the use of deodorizers, air fresheners, scented candles and perfumes will do. For outdoor growing, scouting for a good location ahead may be needed. Make sure that the area where you will plant the marijuana seeds are able to receive as much sunlight. Choose a spot that is away from passersby. Check the pH of the soil.
