Plants suffer outdoors in natural conditions as well. Many times I have hiked in the backwoods and mountains exploring ponds streams and lakes. Areas that have poor nutrition have plants that show signs of nutrient difficiencies, algae infested ponds with still water have submersed plants that look like crap, and those heavily shaded have little in the way of plants. One stream grows thick beds of plants during the rainy season when the trees are barren of leaves and the water gets more light, while during the summer the plants die back under the shade of the tree canopy.
Areas that have the most lush natural plant growth, are those areas that have the most consistent, prime conditions: good sunlight, rich nutrients, and a steady supply of natural C02 from the underground water table.
For more consistent growth, keep your lights on a timer at the same times every day.
