How much sun comes through your balcony? For how many hours? Is the weather rather hot or cold? It’s questions like these that will help choose the right strains.
2. Selecting The Right Spot
The ideal growing medium should be organic, with good draining and air circulation, such as coco coir; it should include worm castings, bat guano and other fertilizers; and rocks/stones for extra drainage.
