Growing outdoors for beginners. The biggest advantage of growing outdoors is obvious: your plant gets free light and water. This has a drawback in itself, though, because you cannot control the light source (the sun) or the quantity of rainwater. There can be too much rain in a short time, and at other times it can be very hot and dry for a long time. Both situations are detrimental to your plants.
- Basic requirements of your plants are free.
- Your project doesn’t take up space inside.
- Soil structure in the garden is often reasonable to begin with.
- You can plant in a bigger plant hole outdoors.
- Less control over temperature and amounts of water and light.
- Plants can be damaged by extreme weather situations or insects.
- Some of these problems can be helped by cultivating in pots. But pots will limit the maximum size your plant will reach.
