Indoor vs Outdoor Marijuana Seeds

If you’re relatively new to growing marijuana seeds, you may be wondering which is best for growing - indoor or outdoor? Both indoor and outdoor have their own pros and cons and ultimately, the choice will come down to what works for your specific location, space requirements, budget, and a few other factors. If you are living in an apartment, you may not have access to outdoor space and you may decide to start growing a small number of plants indoors. If you have access to an outdoor area that is secure and full of natural light, you may decide that outdoor is the way to go. In this guide, we take a look at both indoor and outdoor marijuana seeds to see how they compare.

Which is Best for Growing Marijuana Seeds?

What is the difference between indoor and outdoor marijuana seeds and which are best for growing? Let’s take a look.


Indoor seeds can produce a few harvests a year and have a shorter growth time. They are easier to grow discretely and you have a better chance of controlling the environment. Many growers say that indoor seeds produce a high-quality plant over outdoor. With that said, the costs can be a lot higher, as you will need to provide lights, which use a fair amount of electricity. In South Africa, with loadshedding, you may need to consider backup power as well.


Outdoor seeds usually produce one harvest a year. They have a longer growth time. You will need a good grow site that is safe and protected - ideally near a source of water. The benefits to growing outdoors include a much lower cost, access to natural light, and bigger yields (as you will have more space). On the downside, crops are in the open and can be affected by weather, bugs and other risks. 

As you can see, the differences between indoor and outdoor make both of these options a potentially good choice. Whichever you choose, high-quality seeds are essential.
