Hi guys,

I am living in Thailand and two days ago it was legalized to grow Cannabis at home! :)
Now I want to grow some plants year-around in my garden and I encountered two questions that I cannot answer by myself.

We have 11.5 to 13 hours of daylight all year around, from 11.5 hours in December up to 13 hours in June. So by judging from indoor growing knowledge, that signales "FLOWER!" to the plant all the time.

1. When using seeds, can I use any strain and they will grow not by the daylight hours but will automatically have a veg phase in the first weeks and then will transform automatically into the flowering phase after that? I assume that due to being grown from seeds, that the plants knows that they are still to young to flower and would behave more like an autoflower-strain, growing veg for some weeks and then start to grow buds.
I used some regular seeds to try that out some years ago and it was no problem, plant growed automatically first veg and then flower phase. But is there any difference when using feminized seeds?
2. When using cuttings, would the newly cultivated cuttings go into flowering phase immediately, due to the short daylight time? I assume that due to not being grown from seeds, they will not know that they are still "young", because the mother plant is in veg for a long time already, so the cuttings would go immediately into flowering phase when being put outdoor?

If my assumptions are right, does it mean that I cannot use cuttings without giving them artificial light to simulate the 18/6 rhythm of veg phase?




Thanks already for your help!

They will have a veg phase and recognize their time to bloom beyond just photoperiod,it takes time to buld up flowering hormones to trigger and the plant to grow big enough to assure survival to make planty of seeds. You mentioned increasing daylight dec-june so that will be the veg cycle. I read they are giving away a million plants so they would be used to the conditions,perhaps try one of them or look for heirlooms. I would treat it like growing outdoor anywhere ex summer veg/fall flowering,and sow accordingly. I have heard there are almost perennials or plants that live more than one year and some that have male branches and female branches seperately. If you grow 18/6 then plant out of season I would expect confused plants.

I read the plants they give away are low thc hemp. Growing indicas and hybrids are probably not going to work. They will make 1-2ft moldy garbage. A good equatorial sativa will be your best choice. Colombian, Thai, or Highland Laos would be good choices.

If you end up growing some good Thai weed send me a dm and I’ll help you put it on sticks. 😁 Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
