While growing your marijuana plants will need sun and light, there’s just so much that they can take and for a grower, you have to watch the excess heat that can ruin your pots. Placing them outside your homes under direct sunlight is a sure fire way of stressing your plant. Start planning before planting. If you have a ground for outdoor plantation, try to think first if the temperature in your area will support their growth, if not, then try to do something less outdoorsy. By science, heat will help your plant grow faster, considering the optimal level in which they thrive, which varies strain by strain, though as a general rule try to stick to 30-40 C.
How Do I know When my Feminized Marijuana Plants is Under Heat Stress?
Symptom of heat stress is pretty straight forward and you can tell it already when you see the leaves- that supposed to be for your pleasure, turn into brown-yellow curled up leaves. Stems also start to harden and you’ll see more ‘spottings’ on its leaves.

Find a way to get a hold of temperature monitor.

Liquid fertilizers/ seaweed extracts are also commonly used to help the plant recuperate from the stress.
For outdoor planting, as I have mentioned- PLAN. You know how hot it would be summer at your locale so try to prepare shadings where you can put your weeds under to control heat. Potted plants can also be regularly moved from place to place to make sure that they still get the heat they need, especially for newly planted cannabis. Liquid fertilizers can also be applied as well as your daily watering schedule. Outdoor grown Cannabis plants are very prone to heat stress so take extra care for them. It would take at least a few weeks for them to come around but once your weeds are out of the woods, you’ll see that your effort and money will not be wasted because of heat. Good luck!
