From now on we can show cannabis strain info and reviews arranged to climate zones according to the universal Köppen / Geiger climate classification. This system is based on the concept that native vegetation is the best expression of climate. Thus, climate zone boundaries have been selected with vegetation distribution in mind. It combines average annual and monthly temperatures and precipitation, and the seasonality of precipitation. We use our own database with the actual climate data from the past 23 years to calculate this zones, onto this way we can deliver an actual and fairly accurately image (onto a 0.5 ° lat/long grid). This allows us to collect and evaluate information like flowering times, yields and so one for the different regions - and in the ideal case, the future farmer may find suitable or unsuitable varieties better than ever before!

Click here to go to SeedFinders climate index page, all functions are working now, for example, you can already see all strains suitable for a particular climate zone in an ordered list by average rating. With the help of our climate zone picker you can also point your spot on a map to get the local climate (as well as suitable strains for this place). What's missing are a few custom maps, explanations and overviews for the individual climate zones, but the interested reader will find some more info here onto the pages of the University of Vienna (very detailed) or at Wikipedia (probably not as accurate, but a little easier).

PS: This feature replaces the old Outdoor Plant Finder and the previous classification of the ountdoor reviews to the latitude. Geo-coordinates are no longer displayed in the future, the flowering times will be now displayed also separately for northern and southern hemisphere.
