    Hey folks I’m in the midst of purchasing seeds for the 2018 outdoor grow year! This is my 3rd outdoor grow and I’m planning on growing in 10 and 15 gallon fabric grow bags.
    I’ve been researching seeds for the past few months now trying to read up as much as I can. I think I have narrowed it down to a few different strains listed below.

    Black D.O.G by Humboldt seeds

    Critical kush by Barney’s farm

    Bubba’s gift by Humboldt seeds

    Blueberry headband by Humboldt seeds

    Gorilla bomb by bomb seeds

    Holland’s hope by Dutch passion

    I need a strain that will finish by the first week of October. My spot is near a corn field so the plants will have to be harvested by the end of the first week of October. Or else they could be spotted by the guy smoking a joint in the combine cutting down the corn lol. Don’t need that to happen.

    Like I said above I’ll be growing in 10-15 gallon fabric pots the 24/7 garden grow bags unless someone tells me otherwise...

    I’m looking to get between 10-20 oz per plant. So pound per plant would be fantastic.

    Will be using botanicare pure blend pro line and also once a week top dressing my soil with botanicare growilla powdered nutrients.

    My soil is local compost and perlite mix with bone meal and blood meal nothing crazy just a few base nutrients.

    If anyone has any tips or advice on which seeds would work best for my New England outdoor grow that would be much appreciated thank you.

    O and I plan on doing 6 plants. Thanks

    I would put them straight in the ground instead of pots, you don't have to water as often. Big plants in 10 gals on hot days need watering at least every 2 days(ime) are you running fem or regular seeds?

    look for september finishers.not sure how far north you are,but i'm over any october strains,no matter how early.they always seem to need more time.i grew a critical kush a few years back,got huge but i had to chop early do to mold.good luck,friend

    Hey thanks for the reply. I’ll be using feminized seeds. And I’ve thought about that. Would be way easier to plant when the time is right as well because I wouldn’t have to wait for the weeds to grow up enough to conceal the grow bags... the only thing is I wouldn’t be able to move them. I would have to make sure the plants were ready for harvest by the end of the first week of October. October 7th at the absolute latest

    Skip on the Hollands Hope,it is a junk strain.Gets buds but wasn't potent/mold resistant or early,and very fluffy/leafy.

    That strain is a waste of effort,cant believe DP actually sells that crap.Someone 12 years old might be happy with the outcome of that strain but there is way better.

    Humbolts Bubba Gift is a very solid strain with tight nugs/very potent and stable,with top quality bag appeal.Only thing is the strain is slow veg,a turtle in hibernation grows faster than that strain.Flowers as almost as soon as you put it outdoors and stays small to only couple foot tall.So you would have to veg it a long time indoors to about the actual size you want it to flower at.Great for a 5 gallon bucket or small discreet grow,but will get some mold if you dont keep an eye on it.

    haha I no bubbas gift sucked for me rot magnet. but like every thing gotta pic right pheno!!

    Zbud94 Active Member

    I was really looking forward to bubbas gift. Does Humboldt make any strains you would recommend? I checked out getaway mountain seeds not the biggest selection but they are climatized... and also they aren’t feminized. Maybe next year I’ll try the getaway mountain seeds when I have a decent indoor area for clones and sexing.

    Cannaventure has some feminised seeds you might like. They're Tennessee kush #2 looks like an early finisher >60 days. They're raspberry kush looks amazing but not sure on flowering time. They are on green point seeds with a 30% discount.

    CSI Humboldt has some nice feminised seeds as well, lots of mendo and purple ukle crosses. You can grab em for pretty cheap on GLO seeds.

    dubekoms Well-Known Member

    Pretty sure CSI has some fem bubba crosses

    I've had good luck with obsession
    & seedman's white widow.

    They are both mid oct I think. Ill let you check. Both are mold resistant.

    To be safe tho, I'd go for an even earlier finisher. I think getaway mtn. has some early finishers.... You should hit him up. So should I come to think of it.
