I have 4 plants that are about 5 months old and just started flowering late August.
Out temperatures last week and all of this week are getting colder and colder going from 67-high . 40-low
Plants are 3 weeks into flowering as of right now.
And are master kush strain.
i had a couple questions.
- Will a Plant survive freezing temperatures (for how long) ?
- Will growing a plant outdoors for a long period of time help it get used to its natural surroundings and finish on time as the winter months come ?
any other useful information that might be able help me harvest and proclaim my prize that i have been tending to and loving for all this time, i would appreciate it.
no a plant will not survive below freezing. when the water inside the cells vacuoles freezes it destroys the plants structural integrity, this is why they wilt and turn black. however they will survive all the way down to just about freezing, just with a very slowed growth rate.

My first and current grow http://www.rollitup.org/blogs/blog76...-outdoors.html
Ya dude, no worries, Cold brings out nice colors, amsterdam grows outdoors and they have seriously cold falls. if its a sativa it will be slowed more so than an indica. I keep my indoor room like 65-70day and 45-50 night. so your outdoor temps are nice. sorry for the late reply, just popped up on related posts.

im in northern canada and my babes survived 4-5 frosts up to now and showing minimal rot, it all depends on the strain and how accute the frost is
does your dog bit?
i had a few light frosts with no issues
Really depends on the strain. A good number of plants can handle light frosts. I just took down some that i had to shake snow off of. A few brown fans but the buds were still good to go.
your plant will be able to take the cold.. indicas do better then sativas in general... but a big ass sativa plant will take some forst has well... has long has the temps warm up in the day wich they usually do you will be fine.... you wanna worry more when your night temps rech 28 or below... thats when the real damage starys... 32 degrese may only hurt some of your leaves a little.. if even that... but a few degrease colder and shit can get real bad... bring them in at night if ya can, or cover them with plastic during the night... even a layer of mulch under the plant and around the main stalk will help insulate it from the cold
They should be fine just dont let them fall below the Spunkin Line for too long......
Holy shit I just realized this post is three months old! So how did they do?
