13 Best Strains To Grow In Texas In 2022 (With Pictures)

Texas has some of the best growing conditions in the United States thanks to its warm, dry climate and long growing season.

Since Texas is such a large state, its growing season varies quite a bit.

Most of Texas has hot humid conditions in the Summer, with the North of the state experiencing drier Summers and cooler Winters.

If you plan on growing outdoors in Texas, it’s best to avoid Indica strains that have dense buds and are susceptible to mold. The light airy nature of Sativa strains means they are perfect for high-humidity environments.

Amnesia Haze has a flowering time of around 9 weeks and produces large yields, producing up to 800 grams per plant.

The high is slightly trippy, making conversion tricky, so this strain is definitely not one for a social setting.
