What You Need to Grow Outdoors
When you choose to grow outdoors it is not always clear what is needed, starting from the assumption that this type of cultivation could work completely independently and according to nature it is important to understand what could be helpful or in any case essential to obtain optimal results .
Will I need a substrate?
The answer depends on your choices, i.e. whether you prefer to grow in
pot or directly in the ground. In the second case, obviously you will not have
need to buy a substrate because you will already have the soil.
However, you can always improve the soil with some products.
On the contrary, if you want to grow in pots, you will need a substrate.
But which substrate should be used?
Choose a substrate
The choice of substrate is fundamental for a grower. You need to consider your cultivation goals, your experience and your available budget. Each substrate has specific properties and can have various effects on your plant. For the novice grower, a peat-based substrate with an intense microbial life is recommended . Ideally, the substrate is produced for organic fertilization. A more experienced grower can shorten pretilization times and use mineral nutrients. This results in faster and larger yields, but it is a more complicated process because the grower will need to carefully monitor pH values.
In addition to soil substrates, there are substrates based on coconut fiber or
clay granules. These are more suitable for advanced growers, given that
produce excellent results with mineral nutrients and an irrigation system.
Will I need basic nutrients?
Plants need certain elements to transition to the
flowering. Three of these elements are supplied by air and water:
carbon dioxide, hydrogen and oxygen. But in addition to these elements,
a plant needs other essential elements. One element yes
defines essential if the plant cannot complete its cycle in
its absence and if it cannot be replaced by other elements. To provide these
nutrients to your plants you will need an NPK fertilizer.
Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are the main nutrients needed by every plant.
But these three elements are not totally sufficient and your plant will have
need other elements to grow and flourish at its best. Certainly not
they will be needed in smaller quantities, but these are still essential for the final product of your harvest. Plagron base nutrients provide these minerals to your plant.
Soccer . Necessary for nutrient absorption and improves structure
of the cell wall.
Magnesium . A component of chlorophyll, which stimulates photosynthesis and
Sulphur . Essential for the formation and transport of proteins. Catalyze
also the production of chlorophyll and is useful for the finished product
it tastes good.
Iron . Necessary for the production of chlorophyll, proteins and carbohydrates.
Molybdenum . Promotes nutrient absorption and processes nitrates
(nitrogen) into amino acids.
Copper . Important for carbohydrate and protein metabolism. Strengthen them
Zinc . Forms growth hormones such as auxins and acts on production
Manganese . Promotes cell division (mitosis) and improves the
Boron . Important for the formation of the cell wall. Also useful for
regulation of water flow.
Silicon . One of the fundamental components of the cell wall.

In Italy the cultivation of cannabis seeds is prohibited (Art. 28 and 73 of Presidential Decree 309/90) if you do not have a specific authorization (Art. 17 Presidential Decree 309/90)
Therefore, cannabis seeds may be used exclusively for collecting purposes and for genetic preservation and are marketed with the reservation that they are not used by third parties in conflict with the law. Cannabis seeds are excluded from Presidential Decree 309/90, which means that they are not to be considered narcotic substances (L. 412 of 1974, Art. 1, Paragraph 1, Letter B; New York single convention on narcotics of 1961 and table 1 Ministry of Health decree 11 April 2006).
