Although the success of the crop will depend largely on luck, with the plants being more or less left to their own devices for most of their life, a series of steps can be taken that, while not guaranteeing a successful harvest, can certainly help the plants to remain healthy throughout the season. In this way, guerrilla growers can harvest cannabis crops of a quality rivalling that of the most pampered outdoor gardens, where it’s far easier to provide the plants with all they need.In the following article we will outline the most important elements to consider for achieving a successful guerrilla harvest in the safest and easiest way possible.
Experienced growers often spread their plants around in several different growing spots within a relatively small area, enabling them to visit them all on the same day without having to travel too far. It’s also a safeguard against failure, should any of various spots be found out or suffer damage for some reason, the others spots will, with luck, remain undiscovered and intact to ensure a harvest of some kind. The most dedicated guerrilla growers install static wildlife monitoring cameras of the kind used by hunters to monitor the plants and ensure that they are in optimum condition.
Another aspect to think about when choosing the growing area is to make sure it’s a good distance away from any homes, roads or paths, at least far enough to avoid problems from the intense smell that your plants will give off during flowering. In the forest there are often small paths used by animals to move between vegetation, and it’s important to avoid them when planting if we don’t want wild animals eating or simply trampling our plants. Choosing a sheltered spot protected from strong winds which, as well as breaking branches and damaging plants, can easily carry the smell of weed further than we’d like, will also help our crop to stay undiscovered.
Ideally, we’d find a grow spot near to some kind of water source, so if we visit the plants, we can give irrigate them at the same time, without having to transport the water too far (and besides, being seen carrying water to some remote rural spot is liable to arouse suspicion). Some growers place their plantation nearby to riverbeds or streams, allowing plants to absorb water from the soil as they need it, although the rains of late summer – sometimes torrential in our Mediterranean climate – can swell watercourses and devastate plantations around harvest time.
We can currently find a good number of slow-release solid fertilisers on the market, products perfectly suited to this type of cultivation. Guerrilla Tabs work really well, as does the GK Organics range from Guanokalong, Trabe’s Nutrihemp or Terralba solid fertilisers. You can make an initial mix when planting, formuated towards the vegetative growth of the plant, and then add more fertiliser when the flowering phase begins. Another option is to use a sack of soil as a grow-bag. This is easily done by clearing the vegetation from a small area of earth, placing a bag of planting soil on the ground, e.g. All Mix by Biobizz. A simple slit in the form of a cross on the top of the bag provides the hole in which the seedling or clone is planted. The method gives a good amount of quality growing media for the plant to develop its root system and feed. The bag can also be perforated on the lower side, allowing the roots to also penetrate the native soil below. Once ready, the substrate bag is covered with soil or vegetation to keep it hidden from view.

As we’re not going to be able to provide them with regular insecticide and fungicide treatments as we might with plants in our private garden, guerrilla plants will need to be hardy, with natural resistance to ensure we harvest clean, mould-free weed, undamaged by pests. Due to the elevated risks carried by guerrilla growing, cultivators will normally choose to plant highly productive varieties, not wanting to take risks and waste effort on plants that will only produce a few small buds. Another factor to consider when choosing genetics is the height of the plant, it being preferable to avoid tall-growing varieties that could easily betray the location of your grow spot.
Guerrilla cultivation is often the only available option for many growers to keep themselves supplied with cannabis throughout the year, especially for those who have no garden for outdoor growing and don’t have the possibility of cultivating indoors. The idea is simple, it’s a question of finding a suitable piece of land to grow on, in a forest, woods, or scrubland where plants can be left to fend for themselves until harvest time. Naturally, the plants need not be completely abandoned, they can receive some care and maintenance depending on how accessible the grow spot is, and how much the grower wishes to risk being caught red-handed while attending to them.

Obviously, when leaving the plants alone, you need to be lucky – no proper pest fighting/strain nutrients; anyway, with strong plants, the results tend to be abundant, similar to the best outdoor grows.
– Gea Seeds suggests the plants to grow for a few weeks before planting around – small plants are much weaker and easier to be attacked by different bugs, and more sensible to shortages and inclement weather.
– Look for a lost, non-frequented place – as far from civilization as possible.
Guerrilla growing consists of marijuana growing in distant, non-frequented zones – mount, jungle, woods; once planted, the strains grow alone – if necessary, they’re irrigated as rarely as possible, and always very discreetly (somebody could see you and your plants would be subtracted, or police would be called): be very careful with these extremely risky moves.
– The chosen seeds are very important – the crop won’t be able to adapt to the strain (strain adapted to the crop), so you have to choose an optimum strain for its living conditions – resistant to fungi, pests, inclement weather, and not too grown, with bushy structure; much easier to camouflage and go unnoticed, and short flowering term – being around as little as possible, for no problems.
For strain femininity, you won’t deal with sexing on time – feminized/auto flowering strains are suitable, preventing a guerrilla growing full of males and hermaphrodite plants full of seeds; your strains have to be as productive as possible.
Guerrilla growing’s a compulsory option for those cannabis consumers without any garden or any possible indoor growing; this post provides all the necessary info for a successful guerrilla growing, away from negative episodes.
– If irrigating is difficult and dangerous, there are some basic irrigation systems such as a decanter with the wire; anyway, keep in mind that you have to get close to the plantation as rarely as possible – in damp places (near a river) water-shortage risk gets reduced; there are professional products, designed to dispense the water gradually.
– Arrange the terrain for the strains, oxygenating the earth and adding soil rich in nutrients to improve the results – there are guerrilla-growing fertilizers (i.e. Guerrilla Tabs), decomposing pills left on the soil.
