Indoor vs. Outdoor vs. Hydroponic Weed — those are the contenders. But which is best?
Well, the answer mostly boils down to personal preference. But there are differences depending on how it’s grown. Today, Have a Heart, Skyway’s preferred provider of legal Washington state pot, is here to break down the differences and give you all the information so you can make an informed decision when you come into our store to make your next marijuana purchase.
The biggest pro of growing weed indoors is climate control. You get to decide when the plants receive light, when they’re watered, what temperature the room is, and so on. Having complete control over the environment is a way to ensure that the plants are producing a consistent flower each and every time. It doesn’t matter what part of the world you’re in, what the season is, if you’ve got electricity and the space, you can be sure your crop will be perfect with the right know how.
The benefit to growing a crop outdoors is a natural protection against mites and natural predators from their surroundings. Good insects actively keep away bad insects that are working hard to destroy your hard work. What’s this mean for the crop? Fewer pesticides, and a more organic-skewing product. Weed is called weed because it is, after all, a weed. Outside is the natural environment, and folks have been growing marijuana outside for hundreds of years. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The hydroponic method, while expensive to set up, requires no soil and is one of the best methods to get a very, very dank yield. By having the control over the environment like you do with an indoor operation, and by using a combination of water, vermiculite and potting mixes, you’re able to accelerate the process from planting to harvesting. This method does take time and money, but the results are incredibly worth it.
Again, this all boils down to personal preference. Please stop into Have a Heart and our team of friendly and knowledgeable budtenders will be more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect strain and perfect ingestion method for your cannabis needs.
