    you have one season for weed...unless you count those auto flowering freak plants. you might be able to squeeze in a couple of them, who knows??

    just watch your native plants. look close at the new growth buds on the tips of tree branches, pay attention to nature. there are signs of when to plant outdoors.

    dice618...I live in STL (314) and i've grown out doors many times. You just don't want the temp to go below 65 degrees, and over 95. I'd plant in a month or so.

    you need to wait til you have your last frost. In your area it is between the 17th and the 22nd of April. Start them off on the inside if you can to get th em going a little then take them out. 'Good Luck

    I've always found a good rule of thumb to be is when the local farmers plant late corn. Call a feed store or extension agent and tell them you're new to the region and planting corn. They'll give you the info you need.

    Hey retards all of you are wrong don't plant outside till you have more than 18 hrs of light in a day! It's different everywhere west coast has the most light in a day here in the states.

    Do any of you do any other gardening? I guess for me it just seems no-brainer, I just plant seeds in the ground early May and water, let nature do its thing. Other than removing males, cropping and LST I leave the plants alone. I think sometimes this process is made so much more difficult by taking nature out of the equation, it's a weed, and designed to flourish with minimal attention.

    NEWS FLASH buddy you may think some of us are retards but in some parts of the U.S. we never get 18 hours of day light. So who's the retard now? Maybe you should do a little more research on the country you live in so you could pick up on that...

    I'm living in Southern California. I start indoors in early March and get them outside by April. Indoors my lights are 18/6 but outside daylight is only 13 hours. The plants do fine. They don't stress or start to flower just because there isn't enough day light hours. Each day the daylight gets a little longer and I believe the plants can detect this. Either way it's perfectly safe to plant them now. I've been doing it for years.

    As for growing seasons for cannabis... there's one long veg season (spring through summer) and a short flower season (sept to november). The long veg season allows you to stagger your crop. For example, you can plant a few on April 1st, then a few more on April 15, then on May 1st, and again on May 15. You can actually keep putting them out all summer long, but it gets trickier. Young plants can't always take the high temperature of the summer heat. And of course the plants that are started really late don't yield as much, but hey, some is better then none right? :)
