Hi all. Relative newcomer here. Been reading for a few months and am ready to decide on seed and location.
Northern California and it gets very hot in the valley, 100+ hot and 100% sun all summer. I grow vegetables here OK, but sometimes they look a bit burned. Can weed tolerate intense sun or shade cloth a good idea? Or an area where they only get sun part of the day…ie alongside a building?
Thinking autoflower to perhaps avoid the most intense summer sun. Prefer a Sativa strain, but want a shorter plant. Yes, I understand that Sativas are tall, but new hybrid x might be available. And controlled trimming is certainly a thought.
Probably 4 plants this summer so I might mix up the locations and find out what works best.
Any thoughts would be appreciated on variety and heat concerns. Thanks
