1- Select the right seed
The large number of varieties of marijuana that exist in the cannabis market offer you different characteristics not only in flavor and effect, but also in production and growth. There are strains that are capable of resisting high temperatures and others that are not, so choosing the right variety will save you worry.
The autoflowering strains are the ones that best acclimatize to different environmental conditions and grow fast, so think about this option when growing in high temperatures.
2- Watering and shade
In outdoor growing, when fighting high temperatures, watering can be of great help, keep your plants hydrated.
Check the substrate constantly, if it’s slightly damp, don’t water it, but if it’s dry, water carefully.
Some recommend watering with cold water so that the plant cools down from the roots to the highest parts.
Another important factor to consider when outdoor growing in these high temperatures is to provide shade for your plants at certain times of the day.
Whether you locate your plants in a place, where a tree provides shade or artificially place a tarp or cloth to cover them a bit, without leaving them completely in the dark.
