Growers report that it grows beautifully in warm, bright, dry conditions. Keep humidity below 60%, and your plants will thrive. Expect heights of about five feet by harvest, which is the perfect size for Screen of Green growing. Spreading out its indica-style branches helps maintain its quick growth period. It also helps expose as many bud sites to light as possible. That will bump up the harvest to truly epic proportions.

If you do decide to grow weed plants outside, watch out for humidity problems. Some outdoor plants suffer from mildew or even rot if the conditions get too wet. If you can keep things dry and warm, your plants should thrive. Otherwise, growing inside will work better.
