This is going to be my first season growing outdoors. I live in New York State,  37th parallel. I'm looking for any advice,  help,  and suggestions on good strains. Thanks in advance!

Hi mate 

I live in the UK so I have no idea what your climate / weather is like . So I guessing a bit

But I would suggest maybe start off with a few autos ? 

Dutch passion do some good outdoor strains if your worried about neighbours then frisson dew is stealthily 

Fast flowering strains are worth considering if like here come Sept the weather gets damp and wet 

Hope this helps a bit 

Best wishes 

Happy growing 

H

@mrgrowsalot im in Missouri and our fall can be rainy. our weather heads your direction so im sure you fall can be wet too... Id have a look at strains that finish faster..

Northern lights, Green crack, C99 all seem to be shorter flower times for photo period plants any where from 6-8 week.  Autos would also fit the bill.

Being your first attempt at outdoor I’d probably do mostly autos because of the shorter harvest time. Photos would give larger plants and higher yields but you’d have to keep them going through October to reach harvest. You could potentially be harvesting around august with autos and wouldn’t need to worry about the cold weather coming early.

@mrgrowsalot I’m also in NY the Central/Finger lakes Region. In NYS where I am October/November is your harvest months here for photos. I absolutely agree with @Monkeydo for your first time do autos start them a bit early indoors I try to shoot for a end of July harvest with autos because there’s not much rain here and temperatures haven’t reached peak yet.

If you’re absolute set on doing photos I suggest you go for the tried and true strain. I’ve successfully grown White Widows outdoors here as well as Northern lights and strawberry cough. Where I am BUGs are the killer. Spider mites, leaf hoppers and aphids will almost certainly find your crop especially if you’re near any apple orchard so make sure you have a Pest Management plan. Now as for harvests Powdery mildew and Bud rot is absolutely gana happen cause it rains like a bitch in September/October/November here so you will most certainly have to go out and shake the water off your buds. It is possible to grow Photos here just takes a bit more effort. Good luck Bro 👍🏻

@mrgrowsalot   I live in Central Connecticut, I suggest if you grow photoperiod plants, you pick a strain that is quicker to flower like indica strains.  

Just my 2 cents

thank you,  I was thinking about doing half autos and half photo. Im growing a red mandarine fast right now might go that route too. Any strains work better than others? Any tips or tricks for outdoor?

Thanks for all the good info, western edge of the state here! When do you try to get plants in the ground? Was going to start everything indoors first.

thank you, when would you suggest planting, would I plant at the same time for autos as photos or fasts? Any tips or tricks or hacks so to speak?
