    hey everyone- so those living on the east coast, we are all glued to the tv trying to figure out if we need to evacuate our coastal towns.
    Question being, my plants are guerilla in the woods. Some are being blocked fairly well by other trees or uprooted trees from hurricanes past. I’m sure there is not much I can do, as they are in the ground, but should I clip them early or let them ride it out and see what happens? What would you do?

    If its going to ruin your crop for sure id pick them .

    Its a gamble . If your further north and get alot of rain for the rest of the season you may run into bud rot as well

    Thanks- I am very southeast so the rains should not play a huge factor, but if this thing comes in hot with 100mph winds and rain... gamble your right
    I was hoping to get till October before clip, but could be mid September which would put the plants at about 45 days of flowering

    Wait and survey the damage to decide
    Why kill it to keep it from being killed?

    Too far out to know for sure how bad it will be or even where exactly it will hit.
    Looks like Virginia - SC with most possible landfall somewhere on NC coast by meteorologists estimates.

    If it's 120mph like they estimate, might want to support them with 1/2" rebar.:shock:

    Things don't look good. I hope everyone is able to hold out or get out.

    If you have any that are real close, you might clip them. But for most of them you just have to wait and see what kind of damage it does. When you go in after the storm, take lots of duct tape. I had two broken in a little 2016 hurricane. One I had tape with me, and it got fixed up and it was able to finish laying on it's side. The other one I didn't have tape with me, and half of it broke off that day. Later the other half broke too.

    Good luck to all you guys in the path of the storm.

    LOL, you made a wrong turn Buck. Turn right at the Cannabis Cafe,then halfway down the hall is the Politics room.
    Don't be like them, throwing crazy around everywhere. You are starting to splash the onlookers with those water balloons you are tossing off the roof. :peace:

    Hit cat 3 just now!! At this point I know you're thinking about things beyond the crop! I don't know how you could secure it against a cat 3 or 4 hurricane? I don't think it's possible ..wouldn't be surprised to hear about evacuations soon? hang in there and be safe all! I'm on the coast too but more north, probably just be rain and strong winds here?

    Edit: about an hour and 45 minutes after cat 3 they said it was now category 4 !? That changed fast?

    Strip those fan leaves. Stake 'em. They'll come back after the storm thinking they've been ravaged by wild animals and will produce more leaves and raise their tHc levels, as increasing the buzz-effect is the plants only defense against being eaten alive, and hopefully throwing the rabbits into a mid-life crisis of introspection.
    Let 'em ride it out, imo, and take cover! Early!

    That might help a bit. Less wind resistance less.

    In any event, if things look grim, don't stick around for a few plants. Get to some safe area. There is always next year.

    Welp- mandatory evacuations have started. My little coastal town is going crazy. No water, propane, gas...
    I’ll see what I can do to them tomorrow and try to keep them safe. Worst comes to worst, they break and I can harvest what I can find.
