As unnerving as the unpredictable elements
can be, the great outdoors is the best place to grow anything, even
somewhat high-maintenance plants like marijuana. With all the things
that can go wrong in cannabis cultivation, climate-controlled indoor
growing might seem like the safer option, but S.T. Oner's Marijuana Outdoor Grower’s Guide proves that notion wrong. Plus, what gardener doesn’t want to brag about their all-natural grow?
Carefully stripped down to the need-to-know basics, the Marijuana Outdoor Grower’s Guide
aims to make outdoor growing easy for first-time growers. This book is
for the hobbyist looking to grow a couple of plants in the backyard, so
it avoids the more complex and discouraging issues of large-scale
growing and is far more comprehensible for it. While some books aim to
appeal to every level of expertise, the Outdoor Grower’s Guide keeps it simple and straightforward, even when approaching some of the more advanced techniques such as cloning.

locations and ultimately demonstrates that a natural environment results
in the best grow, even if it requires some patience and planning.
However, growers are not alone in the planning process as Oner guides readers through every consideration they need to make, from strains and seeds to the best growing sites and set-ups. Oner
also considers the potential security risks of growing marijuana
outdoors, and gives raiders the tools necessary for concealing their
cannabis cultivation — and more importantly their harvesting.
With all of the preparation advice out of the way, Oner
provides readers with additional guidance through the germination
process as well as some tips on how to best care for young marijuana
plants, such as watering and pruning methods. Keeping in line with the
goal of an all-natural grow, Oner supplies readers with some
natural methods of pest control, including using companion plants, using
predators as deterrents, or even making an organic insecticide!

the issue for small-time growers looking to lessen the stress.
Even when providing guidance on more advanced issues like cloning, Oner
avoids pushing the reader too far. He keeps explanations simple and to
the point so that readers can get the best possible plants for their
little garden. Solutions to potentially complex problems like nutrient
