Outdoor cultivators produce at least one harvest per year in the fall. With perfect conditions outdoors, it is possible to yield up to 1 pound for each plant. It’s important to have at least two meters of space between the plants. The plants also need enough water and nutrients without contracting any diseases or being attacked by pests. Germinating the plants early in the season allows them to grow much larger and germinating the seeds indoors enables growers to control over the temperature and humidity.
