Exotic Marijuana Strains & Seeds
Exotic weed strains are some of the most sought after marijuana strains for a few different reasons. First of all, they’re difficult to find, making them prized possessions. Second, the process of growing these rare marijuana strains can be fun and exciting.
The most exotic weed strains are sought after by both growers and consumers but exotic weed strains can mean different things to different people. When talking about cannabis, exotic doesn’t only mean rare and uncommon. It can also mean cannabis strains grown in regions outside of your own. In other words, you’ve gotten your hands on some cannabis seeds that are not local to your specific part of the world. Another key factor of exotic weed strains is their visual appeal. The most exotic weed strains to grow usually have dense buds with purple, orange and white hues within all of that green.
“Exotic” also relates to economics. If it’s rare in your market and you have it, that means it's exotic. If you’re looking to grow the next big strain, do your research and find out which strains are rare based on market demand.
For example, certain strains are only local to California, so if you’re on the East Coast, you may want to dip your toe into California’s popular strains to identify the top exotic weed strains where you live.
The Beauty of Exotic Weed
Like rare sneakers, exotic weed strains are in a league of their own and the fact that they’re so exclusive makes them appeal to growers and consumers alike. Exotic weed strains names are often catchy and creative. That’s because they’re not as well-known so the names have to stick. Whether it’s a sweet treat or a savoury snack, exotic weed strains usually sound delicious, like something from your favorite menu.
Many exotic weed strains are beautiful. In fact for many people, the more colorful and vibrant the buds are, the more exotic they are. A simple search of exotic weed strains pictures confirms this. Keep in mind, colorful buds are often more difficult to grow. They also often contain more THC. To grow your own exotic marijuana strains, it all starts with buying the right seeds.
Growing Exotic Weed Strains
Colorful weed strains require unique growing conditions such as lower temperatures and restricted light. Depending on the strain, their flowers might go from green to another color, like purple. Growing your exotic weed seeds indoors allows you to control the growing environment so that these rare strains can flourish.
Pink and red exotic weed strains are genetically coded to show colors during the flowering stage, however you can stimulate this effect by depriving your plants of phosphorus. Certain strains can produce yellow and orange hues because of carotenoids. Similarly, increasing the alkaline conditions of your plants at the end of the flowering stage can produce vibrant yellows and oranges.
