Depending on how experienced a grower you are, you can pretty much try to grow any strain outdoors as well as indoors. But we've made a rough classification of strains best suited to indoor (or greenhouse) growing, and strains suitable for outdoor cultivation.
Cover your Nirvana seeds with a maximum of ¼ inch of soil. Keep the soil damp. Now wait for the seedlings to pop up. For best germination rate, use our Propagator Pro to create the optimum germination conditions, and our Germination Kit to protect your seeds from harmful influences and to stimulate the germination process.
To stimulate growth, it is important to accommodate your Nirvana seedlings with at least 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness every day. If your climate is suitable, you can choose to replant your Nirvana seedlings outdoors. If not, buy yourself some good grow lights and replant your seedlings indoors. Use our Root Xtender for a vigorous and strong root growth, and Root Pouches for a better protection of the roots. Many of our customers use Soiltabs to give their Nirvana seeds optimum slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the vegetative stage.
When growing outdoors, your Nirvana plants will start flowering as days get shorter and autumn sets in. Indoors, switch your light cycle over to the flowering cycle of 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, when your Nirvana plants are about half the size desired and then force them to start flowering. Autoflower strains will start flowering automatically, cutting a lot of time from your vegetative stage. Instead of just growing leaves, your plants are also flowering now. For best nutrient solution during the flowering stage, buy yourself some Flowertabs that is specifically formulated to supply slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the flowering stage.
After harvesting, let your Nirvana buds hang to dry for a minimum of 10 days in a dark and enclosed, but ventilated space until the branches crack when you bend them. How long this takes depends on your climate and atmospheric humidity. Then cut the buds, trim the leaves and store the buds in mason jars. Open the jars 2 to 3 times a day for about 15 minutes to prevent mold growth. Stick labels on the jars to remind you of what’s inside.
