Best strain for pacific northwest?
Posted 13 February 2013 - 06:23 PM
This will be my second outdoor grow. I live up in Bellingham in Washington state. Last summer I put out 20 plants and did a few different strains. Cheesecake, deep purple, rand daddy purps, critical mass, and orange. I was not happy with the results we got from 80% of the plants we put out, we got 4 pounds total. Our spot is PREMIUM at 500 feet above sea level, and runs parallel to a mountain spring for easy water access all summer, and sits On an east west facing slope with sun exposure from sunrise to sunset.
My question is
Are there any strains you would suggest for a more damp climate, and cold fall temperatures. Stem rot becomes a huge problem towards late September- mid October. So the strain has to e a quick flowerer ad be mold resistant. I don't have much experience with outdoor as all my indoor strains have a rough time in cooler climates.

I did grow some purple kush last year...now I vegged these indoor and put them out to flower in early Sept and harvested early Nov. We had rain and temps dipping into the high 30's at night and low 60's high 50's during the day. No mold...no problems...not a huge yield but some very quality smoke.

Have you thought about a greenhouse...might solve some problems...
This is a guerrilla grow.... I have a greenhouse t my dads thy we use for his medical supply. We never have issues in the greenhouse, I wish I could set one up on the mountain without being noticed. Haha

You can get a small weather guard thing and set that up. As long as you're place is secure it works. I pop mine up late in flower when rain comes
Do you have a link you can post me?? This sounds perfect for my location. We are bordering a tree line so it should stay out of sight. We only have problems after September when the rain really starts to move in.

Blueberry x skunk (mid Oct)
I like most BBC crosses
Haven't grown her but herd biddy early was a good choice.

Most Blueberry and Afghan crosses. Basically any Indica dom. that has a good resistance to mold.
Or autos but you would need a substantial amount of plants depending on what you would like to yield.
