There are many soil amenities that can add benefits to your soil in pots or in the ground. Examples are coco coir, worm castings, seabird guano (poop), so you’ll want to consult your local “grow store” for suggestions on soil mixtures.
End use: What is the end goal for your crop? Are you making concentrates? Producing the best flowers? What affects you are seeking?
Some strains we recommend in the category of tall/stretchy plants that do well outdoors are Royal Highness bred by The Humboldt Seed Company, Sour Diesel, Chocolate Grape Diesel bred by Purple Caper Seeds, Sour Diesel Lemon Kush, Chemdawg 4, Black Jack and any of our OG strains (Hades OG, Fire OG, SFV OG, Venom OG). Keep in mind these are very tall if you have height restrictions.
Smell: If you have nosy neighbors or a city ordinance against odor you may not want to grow a strong smelling or “skunky” cannabis plant such as Dream Queen.
Most Sativas and hybrids strains do great outdoors because they stretch during their vegetative cycle and have the ability to grow larger in a given time frame, as compared to Indica-Dominant strains.
On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers, had said lawmakers were “really, really, really close” on a marijuana agreement. Previously, she said there was an “impasse” in negotiations on impaired driving, but things were progressing.
But in Albany, seemingly minor disagreements can quickly devolve into major dustups, leaving policymakers hesitant to say a final agreement has been reached even as rank-and-file lawmakers were briefed Tuesday night and Wednesday morning on the parameters of a potential deal.
The emerging agreement comes as the state Capitol continues to deal with multiple scandals centered on Cuomo, including at least a half dozen women who have accused him of sexual harassment, misconduct or otherwise inappropriate conduct.
What the emerging marijuana agreement would do
On Wednesday, Cuomo said critics of marijuana legalization have to realize nearby states are already offering legal sales, forcing New York to act or to lose out on revenue.
“It’s down to the word ‘may’ or ‘shall’ and commas or periods,” she said of the negotiations.
Some lawmakers have proposed setting aside state money to study the issue further, raising concern that current saliva testing is unproven. It wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday how the issue had been resolved.
