Hey Guys + Suggestions
hey guys glad i registered, have just purchased my brand new bong with my friend, excited to get it and was thinking about getting into a very small outdoor grow for personal use.
i'm from Queensland, Australia where our summers are pretty much from October - March and winters from May - August. i know this has almost definitely been answered in other threads but I was just looking for some general advice on outdoor growing in my climate, what time of year, what is the best soil, how often should I water, etc.
I have two spots I was thinking of setting up, one very secluded in a cool spot, under a canopy pretty much with streaks of light coming in, and one more open but in a very light forest, very lit up almost all day. I assumed (probably incorrectly so please inform me if i'm wrong) that I could grab some small black plastic pots and recommended fertilizer from the local hardware and go from there.
Any information / suggestions would be helpful at this time, thanks guys !
Better to get some outdoor organic nutes from a Hydro shop than some generic crap from bunnings mate. There are a few around bris and the coasts. Or look into Subcool's supersoil perhaps. I don't use soil often but when I do it is a mix of standard potting soil, coco, perlite and a few other ingredients depending on what I have laying around but remember, if your soil pH is not stable, nutrient uptake will be minimal. Standard rules apply- pant in spring, harvest in winter. Anything outdoors right now is flowering. If light is limited so will your yield be. In filtered light you will grow stretchy plants with light buds- they love sunshine, we have plenty of it here in QLD so pick a spot where your girls can soak it in!
That should give you a place to start researching. Use the search function for better info on soils.

thanks for the advice man really appreciated, I really have no idea and just need to ask alot of questions to be honest. yeah from what i've read perlite sounds reliable, can i just mix that with organic soil and i should be alright?
ah so planting in spring will mean waiting another year or so ? yeah the second spot i'm thinking of gets a good baking all day long from good sunshine, should be perfect
