CHOOSING A VARIETY TO GROW
Cannabis all around the world respond to the same environment influence, and the most important influence is the photoperiod, which determine when the plant will be mature and if they will be mature at time for the deadly freezing. For the exterior cultivator, this is the MOST important consideration, because if the plants are not mature on time, you will only have foliage and immature buds to harvest. You should always grow a less powerful variety, but still good, that will have a complete maturation rather than a uber-strong variety that won’t be mature on time. In interior, you don't need to worry about the flourishing and the plant maturation because you control the photoperiod so at the same time the maturation.
For the normal cultivation or grafting programs, three primary characteristic are the MOST important for all marijuana farmer: the power, the time of maturation, and the productivity. Certain secondary characteristic to consider are the taste and odor, the vigor and resistance to disease, the formation of the bud and manicure ease, and the quality of the buzz (energising or debilitating to name two most extreme ones).
The time of maturation under natural light, for the most part, depend on the seed origin latitude and the local photoperiod. In general, the farer from equator the seed origin is, more quickly the plant will bloom and will be ripe. The real time of the maturation also varies with the local condition the seed variety is accustomed to. For example, if the plant was acclimated to a high altitude, it could be mature more then one month before their cousin at the sea level, even if they have the same latitude. This is the reason why the varieties that come roughly from the same region can differ from a significant way in their maturation length. The best seed for the multiplication for a precocious maturation is the South African, Afghans, Pakistanes, Chineses, and the Ruderalis varieties.
The second consideration, the power, can come from any varieties in the globe, since the power does not depend on the origin, and all the varieties of marijuana can be exceptionally powerful.
In addition to the strenght or the total power, the quality of the buzz also become way more apparent when you gain experience with a wide selection of variety. Different marijuana type were described as debilitating, narcotic or energising, enriching, cerebral and hallucinogenic.
The productivity of an individual plant is not usually a major consideration when you choose a type to grow except if you do it outdoor. In the interior, you can fill your garden with sturdy plant and the space limitation restrict the productivity more than using different varieties does. Even if in interior you will find that certain varieties grow faster and produce more than others. The productivity under the lamps depend principally on how thick the buds form themselves along the branches, and how firmly the buds individually grow. It's one of the main reasons why a lot of cultivators prefer the indicas to the sativa (specially the sativa from the South East Asia), because the indicas tend to develop themselves in a much more compact manner way and they have thicker and heavyer buds. The hemp develops themselves with a well formed head compared to the sparse flower from the majority of ruderalis, an important consideration when we want to do grafting.
Another thing that you could consider when you do grafting for productivity is that the variety of ruderalis production is so small that they are most likely any value for any characteristic other than a precocious flourish. Someone who want to do grafting could decide to use an american hemp for his precocious maturation, because those plant produce as good productivity and with well formed buds.
