When growing marijuana outdoors, your climate zone plays a significant part in planting schedule, strain type, among other considerations. Climate Zones are how scientists and farmers determine when and where to begin planting. The different climate zones are: moist tropical, Mediterranean, humid subtropical, arid or semiarid, maritime, hot summer continental and subarctic zones.
Marijuana grows in several zones from all over the world. From the various tropical regions in the U.S., to the cold tundras of Russia, weed can grow just about anywhere. But not all strains grow equally well in all zones. Most will still grow but extra care is needed to prevent issues.
