We all know that cannabis is a hardy industrious plant species that can be cultivated all over the globe. However, if you happen to be farming your cannabis outdoors, someplace down south is usually the best spot to crop. Southern European growers have the luxury of long hot summers with plenty of sunshine. While most northern Europeans exclusively grow cannabis indoors. In contrast, around the Mediterranean, the opposite holds true for the majority of personal cultivators.

Whether it’s a short and discreet balcony grow or bigger plantation you need the very best genetics to harvest a fat stash of dank buds. Indica leaning strains are a great option for both those that enjoy couchlocking cannabis effects and the resourceful grower. Indica photoperiod cannabis typically flowers in 8-10 weeks. Autoflowering indica hybrids can be ready for harvest in the same time frame. That translates to multiple bumper harvests per year for southern growers.

Elite photoperiod indica strains penetrate the 20% THC level ceiling. While next-gen autoflowering indica hybrids are not far behind with 15%+ THC levels and a phenomenally fast life-cycle to boot. Our top 5 indica strains blog comprises the very finest of both. Probably the best 5 ways to set your southern cannabis garden on Fire! In a good way.
