What Makes A Strain Good For Cold Climates?
Whether you’re an outdoor grower living in cooler climates or an indoor grower experiencing low temperatures in their grow space, this strain collection has something which is right for everyone: from fast-flowering landrace, Indica strains to fruity hybrids of well loved classics. The quintessential strain for cold climates doesn’t allow its growth to be affected by plunging temperatures, has a high mold and pest resistance and a relatively short flowering period due to the Northern Hemisphere having summers which are shorter and colder than elsewhere in the world. Here is some general information about strains in this collection:
- Resistant to mold – increasing amounts of rain towards the end of summer can lead to moisture related complications, however the strains in this collection have good resistance to this.
- Short flowering period – a relatively short bloom period of 7–9 weeks.
Cool Climate, Cooler Colors
One of the key benefits of growing in colder climates is the abundance of cyano-pigment production towards the end of the flowering cycle whether on the stems, leaves and/or buds. These purple hues are contrasted by a dense layer of bright white sticky trichomes and arise due a combination of genetics and environment.
