Indoor cannabis growth depends heavily on genetics and quality of the artificial lighting. Generally, labels such as “indoor” or “outdoor” are a bit arbitrary when it comes to strain seeds. What we actually mean by the term “indoor seed”, is the strain’s ability to survive in climates that most resemble artificial environments and its response to plant training.
Trichomes have their own separate life-cycle, which begins as soon as the plant is induced into the flowering phase. As soon as blooming starts, the trichomes start to form and transport vacuoles and plastids from the stalk to the gland head. This mini-factory is what will eventually form all of our precious cannabinoids and terpenes.
