    Hi,

    Was just wondering if anyone cud let me know when im supposed to throw in my seeds... I'm a smoker, only starting a plant due to the lack of quality shit around my area. It's all crud. Hopefully with the help of this site and the cannabis cultivation community I'll have some quality budd to smoke within a few months.

    Thanks

    Actually, smart outdoor growers have already started their gardens indoor under cfls or taken clones and rooting them. the outdoor grow season in most US areas is mid April- late May. Start Ur seeds or clones now under cfls and harden them off 1 week before transplanting outdoors. the plant is bigger and stonger than a frail, vulnerable seedling or clone and its like adding an extra month of veg growth which will add to your harvest yeild. dig a large hole about 1.5 square foot hole about 2-3 feet deep. line the sides with newspaper and place a woden board at the bottom to slow water runnoff.Backfill the whole with the amended soil and dirt, and plant ur weed. water. and wait. you wont be smoking any outdoor grown crop until mid september to mid-december depending on the strain. Indicas do well outdoors especially when temps drop or nutrients are a lil lacks. Sativas take long to flower(12-20 weeks) but they are meant for the outdoors, gettin between 6-20 ft tall and yeilding 1-4 POUNDS OF WEED. But they usually need more attention than Indicas. Remember to shake your buds good after a rainstorm or mold may set in. harvest your outdoor crop when 10-30% of pistils have turned orange, you can wait longer but you risk mold. you need two types of insecticide. One that contains BT to prevent caterpilars(bud worms) and an all pupose Insecticide meant for veggies.

    An outdoor grow should always follow the sun. Frost is not a killer of weed. Only a hard freeze is. Simply cover them at night and you will have no problems. If you live up north (I do not) it is especially important to get the most out of the light cycle.
