Growing marijuana outdoors is the way nature intended it and, despite suggestions to the contrary, marijuana can grow in varying conditions, temperatures and areas. Some types of marijuana will grow better in hotter climates and other types will grow in a particularly cold and wet environment. Of course the major advantage to growing outdoors is the sun. The sun produces more light than thousands of metal halides in one grow room could ever provide. This enables the plant to grow massive and tall. Unlike growing marijuana indoors
, the cost associated is usually far less as there is no electricity and light or hydroponic gear costs. All you need is an appropriate piece of land. However, growing outdoors has its disadvantages too. Apart from the difficulty of concealling plants, your outdoor crop will have to face the forces of nature (for example rain and wind), deal with problems from pests and will need to be watered regularly.
