    first time grower

    hello my friends, just thought i'ld post some new pics. this is my first time growing, and it's in my backyard. I thought the buds would be growing faster, but from what i'm reading harvest could be mid Oct in socal. I have a bug light in the back yard, do you think that could slow the growth? also, in one of the pics, something has eaten part of a leaf, any idea, what did that?

    they are coming along fine i wouldnt worry about the light

      Howdy from So Or. johnb1963. Patience weedhopper no disrespect intended I don't think your blue bug light will cause a problem but that flood light if it movement promps to turn on might bother the photo sensitivity of your plant. if it's getting at least 12hrs of sunlight your good. Once flowering starts could go 8-12wks to finish. So growing outdoors is not a quick turnaround. Some sort of leaf hopper got the munchies, check plant under leaves or soil it's one of mother natures gifts for growing outdoors. Goodluck

        If it's only one leaf it might have been damaged along the way. There's no such thing as a single bug eating a single leaf like there's no such thing as one cockroach.
        I'm here now. Won't be later.
        Enjoy me while you can.

          Huh? Wait... Huh?

          I posted to 'Spider mites at harvest' about using light to help control spider mites. Someone getting their groove on? Could be me.
