"There is nothing new under the sun".
Last week I cut a few more clones for practice and I have yet to check on them maybe some pictures tmrw? We shall see.
Plants are looking nice man. Do you top them at all? That one looked like it was topped. I actually never topped a plant and was thinking about trying it on one or two this year before they get too big. Mine are much smaller they've only been out a week. I have some autos that are doing amazing though that should be ready in about a month.
Oh about pest prevention, I'm not sure if you mean bugs or animals. For bugs, I just hit them up with Safer End All periodically. I like to start the day they go out to try to prevent a major bug situation before it starts. With oudoors, as I'm sure you know, it is inevitable though. Maybe it is just coincidence, but I've noticed they tend to prefer some strains over others. Last year I had a Dinafem California Hash Plant that they just decimated, but left the other 3 or 4 plants in the area alone.
2 years ago I lost 3 plants to some kind of small rodent. They would dig as the stem either uproot it or chew at the stem. I made a spray out of garlic and cayenne pepper and that seemed to work. I actually forgot it this time and so far nothing has happened. I used to use mothballs, soap, the whole 9 yards, but I don't think any of that stuff really works. Maybe for deer, but I don't have a problem with deer. I think when you put them out early June rather than early May there is more vegetation and food around so they don't mess with them as much. Also, I fill the holes with soil about a week prior to putting the plants in. Gives the animals in the area time to explore and get use to beforehand. Another reason is that I hope it rains sometime that week so saturate all that fresh, dry soil so I don't have to water them.
We had good weather so mine have been outside for about three weeks.
I had shitty luck with all the autos I tried. I think it was just my lack of experience with them.
Things are coming along nicely. I might hold of on pictures for awhile just to show how they blow up.
LEeave some comments.
I know they look stretched its cause it been raining for almost two weeks straight.
