Australia comprises of Central, Western, Eastern, Southern Coasts and Northern region. Below is the outdoor grow calendar to use for these regions:

Northern Australia Grow Calendar

These areas found near and within this Northern Territory mainly have a unique climate compared to the Central region of Australia. Unlike Central Australia, with four different seasons, this region experiences only two seasons: the dry and wet season. The averages used in this information are values based on two cities in Northern Australia, which are Darwin and Katherine.

Warmth is not an issue in this part of Australia, although sunlight is. The arid daylight hours are shorter compared to the Southern Australian regions, which have more hours. It is, therefore, vital to know the number of hours of light your plant can get. Growing strains that are non-photosensitive work better in this tropical season because it can be prolonged due to the available warmer temperatures.

Tropical grow season corresponds with the wet season since it is happening during the summer months. As such, cannabis plants are exposed to high risks of getting mold and mildew. Growers should consider and order seeds that are more resistant to the problems associated with the wet season, such as powdery mildew.

White Powdery Mildew can destroy the entire cannabis garden or crop. It is fungi that appear like gray or white powder on your marijuana plants. Northern Australia is prone to this fungi growth due to high humidity in the regions. The humidity in the region ranges between 70 and 80 percent. Powdery mildew ruins your entire bud when infected, which sums to a significant loss. The solution to this problem is to protect your marijuana plants from this fungi infection. The calendar runs as follows:

August

August is the perfect time to prepare yourself mentally for the growing season. You can do this by preparing your growing area and ordering seeds that are resistant to mold and mildew, preferably. Seedlings grow better in temperatures between 20 °C and 25 °C so, the next month is usually the best for planting due to its warmer temperatures.

Your auto-flowering plants have probably reached the harvesting time. You will, therefore, need to clip the buds and hang them to dry. The drying process might take up to ten days. If you bend a branch and it cracks, then it’s fully dry. The harvest time for regular marijuana is also nearing because the daylights have decreased by this time.
