Tips for growing cannabis outdoors discreetly
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 4 July, 2020
There are those who prefer to grow cannabis indoors, but unfortunately, this form of growing is not always viable for all growers, because first you need a space with certain conditions, which not everyone has.
Thus, many growers choose to plant outdoors. In this sense, in this post we will give you some advice to grow discreetly.
1) Choose a good place
If you have an open space in your garden, you could carry out your growing without major problems; of course, as long as it is not visible to all the neighbors, since the idea is that they do not notice it.
However, if you are going to grow far away from home, you should be very careful because the ground where you are going to plant your cannabis, should not be discovered, so you have to come up with a plan to keep it hidden.
In addition, an aspect that you cannot leave out, is that this site must have good access to sunlight, watering and substrate suitable for this type of plant, otherwise, what could become a solution, would become a problem.
2) Varieties with soft aromas
Cannabis’ strong smells are one of the main telltale aspects of a marijuana plantation, so to keep your outdoor growing hidden, it is important to choose varieties with mild aromatic profiles. Strains with modest aromas include Northern Lights, Moby Dick, Blueberry and others.
Another thing you could do is to choose cannabis strains that do not grow too much or perform regular pruning techniques (depending on the stage the plant is in), to avoid attracting attention.
3) Plant other plants nearby
To minimize or disguise cannabis smells, a great idea is to plant the growing along with other types of aromatic plants (at a safe distance) or to plant the marijuana near existing bushes or shrubs.
What you can do is flood your garden with flowers and outdoor areas with highly fragrant plants such as lavender that provides an intense aroma during the day, and honeysuckles or jasmine that provide strong scents at night.
Associated growing can be good for keeping pests and other invaders away from your plants, and it can intensify the taste of the buds.
