How long and how is composed a growing cycle?

For outdoor cultivation, growers choose areas that receive twelve hours or more of sunlight a day. 

In the Northern Hemisphere, growers typically plant seeds in mid-April, late May, or early June to provide plants a full four to nine months of growth. 

Harvest is usually between mid-September and early October so we can say that a full growing cycle could last 5-6 months.

The plant goes trough four stages of development

  1. Germination

  2. Seedling

  3. Vegetative phase
