Apart from that, it is highly adaptable and will yield high regardless of whether it is grown indoors or outdoors. This is also precisely what makes it an impressive beginner’s grow.
A controllable environment poses multiple advantages. For one, provisions could be made. Growers can accommodate a longer flowering period by changing the light schedule to 12/12 and the fixtures to a 600-watt HID. To counter the heat generated by higher intensity bulbs, one could install a small fan to blow over the room and situate some toward the tops.
Carbon filters would be a good investment when it comes to growing L.A. Sunshine indoors. It tends to produce a sharp, pungent aroma whose intensity could easily overwhelm the senses and distract growers from tending to the plant with full attention. A good ventilation system will also help reduce the odor while circulating the air around the grow room.
Outdoors, L.A. Sunshine thrives best in temperate weather but will quickly adjust to both the warm and the cold. The free space allows it to develop a better root system, making it a bigger plant. It yields equally vigorously as well especially when it is situated in a sunny area where it can soak up the sun
