    I asked my Dad a general question, I said "Hey Dad, Can you grow plants on August and through out September" He said No because it is getting colder out and the sun is going down earlier. However he thought I was talking about general flowers not Marijuana.

    I am growing AK48 and White Widow. I would hate to make those seeds go to waste because the seeds are in the pots and ready to sprout anyday now. So will they grow?

    I don't see why not. As long as the sun is out and the weather is fair the seed will sprout and plants will grow. You may need to influence the dark period by using a tarp or a light proof cover. I figure as long as the plant gets 14-16 hours of good sunlight and is in at least 60 degree weather then there is a chance. I guess you never know until you try.

    They might not grow very large, but they'll grow.

    i dont know much about the outdoor cycles but you could veg for fairly cheap indoors then transplant outdoors for 12/12

    its way to late to start anything now. Marijuana has cycles these all take time to complete. Sorry, they'll grow but no bud. Grow them anyways and do it again next year. It'll give you awhile to read these forums.

    That's not so true when it comes to Texas. I be have a couple of seedlings I think will be done by November. Hell it's not uncommon for it to be 80 degrees for Thanksgiving.......or we could get a 2 inch ice storm. :mrgreen:

    yea if weather conditions are good than yeah why not and it would be really good for flowering time to since the color of the suns rays start to change to the reddish color in august

    Yeah it really depends on the weather/climate and you can manipulate the dark cycle to bud. As long as your plant is about two feet tall and you get it in complete darkness for at least twelve hours it will bud. As long as the temp is between 65-85 on average then you should be okay. Even way below and way higher - depending if the strain is used to the area - the damn plant survives just about anything really. One of the toughest plants in the world. You need to use good fert though as always. That will be a major key on your piano dude.

    Depending on where you live dude you could do it,Cold is your worst enemy as the frost is coming soon to Canada,'d get under half of what the plant should have achieved here...but where its warmer...with less damn snow you could get something at least!

    I agree, the photoperiod outdoors is really different, where I live, we go from 13.5 hours to 10 hours in a strange timeframe. the classic "12 and 12" is a brief period of time for us outdoor growers. Its not worth your time to put them in the ground at that time of year. June 5th is usually a great/safe time to get fully vegged girls in the ground for giant monsters.

    Where are you and whats the sun rise/set times. Its 13 hours of sun here now so she'd be a 12/12 from seed thing and yup the snow in october here would most likely kill it if not the bud rot in september :(. I would say waste of beans unless yup your in mexico lol.

    "12/12" is an indoor time period......Indoor plants will set flowering at 12/12...
    True "outdoor" plants and grows "set" flowering at 14/10!
    I run a few outdoor plants for personal.
    They go out in the spring and run as late as mid October!
    Hardy indoor or true outdoor strains can withstand a few light frost's.....When the heavy frost or freeze's come - move them under "cover" and move them back out for day time......
    I get amazing buzz quality from my outdoors......Deeper more intense and longer lasting as compared to the indoor cousin's!

    Another benefit is color expression - if you like that.

    They can survive a couple of frosts but again my biggest issue with late finishing strains here is bud rot. If doing it check frequently. You can lose a plant in a few days once it starts.
