Tips For Growing Cannabis In A Hot & Dry Climate
If you live in a hot and dry climate such as the Southwest United States or other desert climates around the world then it is vital that you prepare your growing season to work with your hot climate. Hot and dry climates can make it difficult to grow cannabis because of the high level of heat can kill plants, the dry air can dehydrate plants, and the lack of nutrients within the soil. Below are our recommended tips in order marijuana within hot and dry climates.
Be Aware of High Levels of Sunshine
Hot and dry climates are known for their heat and large amount of sunshine. This large amount of sunshine can actually be very dangerous for cannabis plants. Everyone knows that plants require sunshine in order to grow, but too much sunshine and heat can actually be dangerous for the plants. Too much direct sunshine can crisp cannabis plants and stunt the growth of the plants. If you are growing in a dry climate we highly recommend using a grow tent if you aren’t able to naturally regulate the amount of sunshine that you cannabis plants receive.
Dry Heat Can Dehydrate Cannabis
Similarly to how receiving too much sunshine can be dangerous for cannabis plants, receiving too much heat can dehydrate cannabis plants. Water and hydration is a neccessity for cannabis plants to sprout and grow. If your marijuana plants are receiving too much sunshine and are in the dry heat then this can drastically dehydrate the plant. A dehydrated plant will struggle to germinate and grow. This is why it is difficult to grow cannabis in hot dry climates.
Soil In Dry Climates Lack Nutrients
Along with the difficulties of the heat and sunshine levels, dry climates will also typically have soil that is lacking nutrients. Other locations such as Florida or New England will have soil that is filled with natural nutrients because of the amount of moisture on vegetation in the climate. Dry hot climates on the other hand will have significantly less nutrients in the soil because of the lack of moisture and the small amount of vegetation that can grow in the climate.
If you are growing cannabis in a hot dry climate we highly recommend that you utilize unique soil and soil boosters in order to allow your cannabis plants to grow with the nutrients in needs. The dry climate will typically cause low nutrients levels in the natural soil so we typically found the best success by creating an indoor growing setup that uses nutrient filled soil from other parts of the country. This way we don’t have to worry about our cannabis plants not getting the nutrients that they need.
