New York City is a humid subtropical climate, with most of New York state being humid continental. This means that summers days are hot and humid, with many heatwaves bringing scorching hot temperatures. Likewise, the nights are also muggy, with condensation often forming along with your precious buds— the perfect conditions for powdery mildew and mold.
With that being said, you must pick the best strains to guarantee a big harvest without the hassle and dangers of mold. Here are some of the best strains for New York!

This strain packs an uplifting Sativa high with 17-24% THC, making it a potent autoflowering strain. Additionally, in just three months after planting, this strain will produce up to 550g of high-quality marijuana per plant.
