Growing Cannabis: Tips on How to Grow Weed Outside Without Chemicals


Growers have a challenging task: they must learn to grow weed outside without chemicals. It can be difficult, but not impossible. In this article, we will go over ways that you can do just that!

One of the most important things to remember is that nature is your best friend when growing cannabis plants. Try as much as possible to mimic what would happen in nature without human intervention. You don’t need to go out and buy expensive equipment or anything like that, do your best to replicate what you’d see in nature without chemicals.

So how do you grow weed outside without chemicals? The first thing you need to think about is the soil. For soil, use compost. Compost contains all of the nutrients that cannabis needs to grow beautifully strong and healthy, so there’s no need for chemical fertilizers. Furthermore, adding organic matter enriches your soil which means more nutrients get held within your ground, even after watering it.

One easy way to do this is simply adding kitchen scraps (e.g., vegetable peels). However, the best method would be to obtain composted manure; you can receive this at local garden shops or farms. Plant some of your cannabis seeds in a little composted manure, water them, and in a few weeks, you have some new plants!

Next, don’t forget the importance of letting your cannabis plant grow naturally.

Try not to “top” or cut any parts off of your plant so it can succeed however it pleases. Doing this lets the natural environment determine how high up in height your cannabis plant will grow.

Furthermore, it would be best if you also tried to allow your weed plants to follow their natural light cycles as best as possible. For example, if it’s winter where you live, then your weed plants will likely want to slow down on growing or go into “hibernation” mode. Let them! Give them less water and make the lights come on later and go off earlier.

Marijuana plants also need a lot of sunlight and fresh air.

This is especially true if you’re growing weed inside, but it’s still essential when growing outside too! If you want your plant to have the best chance of reaching its maximum potential, then it’s best to let them sit in full sunlight for most of the day. You’ll want to consider how much sunlight the plant gets. This will depend on where exactly they are growing. However, try to mimic the amount of the sun they would get in mid-summer without chemicals (when the sun is at its highest point for the day).

Another critical aspect of growing weeds outside without chemicals is soil.

Make sure you use composted soil for your plants to have no more nutrients left over. Also, try to avoid using fertilizers.

The final important thing to think of is water: just like you did with the soil, make sure that your plant’s only water source is the rain. This will ensure there are no excess nutrients in the water.

Following these guidelines will see you through your growing season with flying colors. There’s no need to worry about chemicals or anything like that. Nature herself is more than able to provide the perfect conditions for great weed!

If you follow this article’s advice, you’ll be seeing huge yields come harvest time.

However, if I were you, I’d recommend using a mobile app to help you record everything. This way, if things didn’t go according to plan, you’ll be able to easily see what the problem was and fix it next time around!

After reading this article, you should better understand how to grow weed outside without chemicals. If you put these ideas into practice, you’ll gain the knowledge to grow your weed with ease! Don’t hesitate to try it yourself!

Now you can grow cannabis outside without chemicals!

Growing Cannabis: The SOG method (Part 2)

  1. For each pot you’ll also need a tray underneath it for catching excess water. Fill them with nutrient enriched water too, don’t forget that.
  2. Wire up your lights to the correct settings if they haven’t been attached already (although some people prefer to do it later in order to avoid damaging them). The exact wattage will differ depending on how many weed plants you have per pot, so read this article to learn more about the best wattage for weed plants .
  3. The next step is to establish a light routine, but before you do that it’s important to know the life cycles of your weed plants. This is why we waited until now to set up the flowering stage because every plant will have its own time schedule.
  4. When each weed plant has reached its flowering stage, you can let them flower and harvest the buds after around three months of growing. Keep your SOG weed plants on a strict 18/6 light cycle throughout this time to make sure they grow as big as possible.
  5. Use scissors or some other tool to cut the weed plants down at their base when you’re ready to harvest them. The entire SOG weed plant will come down in one piece, including the roots and soil. This makes it easier to transport each SOG marijuana plant to your drying area.
  6. Hang your harvested weed plants somewhere with good ventilation so that they can dry out completely before you touch them again. You’ll notice the difference in quality right away, as wet weed can attract mildew and rot easily.

The SOG Method Recap

  • Use the Sea Of Green method to maximize your yield — The more weed plants you have in one pot, the better it works! — Keep them on a strict 18/6 light cycle throughout their entire flowering stage — Harvest each weed plant by cutting it down at its base — Hang the weed plants somewhere with good ventilation to dry them out
  • Use scissors or a cutting tool to make harvesting easier — Use seven gallon (26 liter) pots for each weed plant, they should fit nine per pot. Fill your trays underneath with water and let them drain as needed. — Wire up your grow lights to the correct wattages — Feed your weed plants water and nutrients when they have developed their third set of leaves.
  • Make sure you know how long each strain takes to flower, then keep them on 18/6 light for around three months until harvest time. Expect your yield to be around an ounce (28 grams) per SOG weed plant.
