    First Outdoor Grow

    Setting up for my first outdoor grow. I will have six plants in 5 gallon fabric pots, using Pro Mix HP and Flora Nova nutrients... Just successfully completed my first indoor grow. Gained a lot of experience as to not what to do. Is there anything that I should be aware of for an outdoor grow.... other than the bugs... These strains are mostly Indica and are very similar in genetics simply because I like the super relaxed feeling that they provide... Wish me luck...

      Looking forward to it Farmbuck, I used to grow a lot of roses until I found it to be too much work. In fact, I used to be the webmaster for the Canadian Rose Society,
      I have always liked growing stuff...

    Those sound like great crosses to me MuskieMan. We only get 4 adult plants per household for rec. here. So in honor of baseball season i'm growing " 3 run homer-indica" and for the nascar fans a " pre 98 Bubba Kush- indica" a" peanut butter breath-indica" and last but not least a " GG#4 cause she's a real sticky fly catcher hopefully not to many bugs on her gluey buds. Best of luck to ya may our seasons be spent just watching an tending not spraying for bugs

      Hey SoOrbudgal, I got lucky with the first seeds that I started. The strain Th'elon was perfect for me, very relaxing. I find the smoke a little harsh. Is there some way to make it more mild??? My grandson suggested cutting it with regular tobacco, what do you think??? I also have one more that I haven't even started yet (Northern Lights) another Indica with a lower THC, I have six seeds of this one. If nescessary I use insecticidal soap...

    Grow some chrysanthemums nearby your cannabis plants - some bugs that like cannabis dislike chrysanthemums.

        Outdoor grow started, I have 6 plants in 5 gallon grow bags. Most of the plants looks like they need to be topped, do I just treat them as I did with my indoor grow or do I just let them do their own thing. I don't mind them getting tall but would still like to get a bountiful harvest...

          I’ve never grown outdoors, but I always thought one of the benefits was that you don’t have to top or train, just let it grow naturally since the sun is powerful enough to provide light across the whole plant, regardless of shape? Could be I’m talking about of my ass. I’m subscribing to find out the answer. Hope someone gives you good advice, MuskieMan

          I do now top all my outdoor photos and thin the old leaf as they get yellowed just like indoor. I've also stripped lower bud sites once they go into flower just like indoor to increase more energy to top half. Are you planing on leaving them on that deck? I like that cause when these get big and i mean they will get BIG you'll need to tie them to a post or stake in the ground if you got wind i've had many blow over LOL. Man your gonna have fun watching these go, sure can do what you want. Best grow light in the world

          Thanks SoOrbudgal, it made sense to top the plants but I just wasn't sure... "Learning as I grow" It would be easy to attach some sort of trellis to the rail on the deck...

        I like much larger pots for outdoor, I now have 3 135 gallon pots, I just dont want to run out of nutrients in the soil before the end. And that is what happened last year in the 35 gallon pots the soil was spent before the end.
        As far as topping it's up to you, I dont, I just tie them over. The wind is not your friend with small pots, and even in large pots (or in the ground) the plant can be blown over

          Awesome. I'm in Michigan. I'm gonna plant 4 outside this year (first time as well). 2 White Widow & 2 White Lights. We can grow up to 12 but I work full time so 4 will be a good summer hobby grow. Good advice about the wind - I'm near Lake Michigan and it's windy here at times. Good luck with your grow!!!

            Many many times i've had to stand them up again. I don't use the taller pots anymore just short squat ones 10-15gal. Once those canopy get 4ft across they are like sails in da wind LOL.

            Thanks again SoOrbudgal, I'm not too concerned about the wind, the plants are fairly protected where they are. If I have problems with the wind I can tie down the grow bags by their handles... I have grown tomatoes in that spot and had no trouble... Learning as I Grow...

          Outdoor grow going as expected, I am amazed at how quickly the plants are growing. Moved the other plants to a spot with more sun...
