    Check what latitude you are located on and see how many hours of light you get right now. Then post back. Use this link http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/Dur_OneYear.php.

    When does it start to lower (days of light. When it starts to get around 12 hours then they will start to flower. How long is that from today? And how long will the 12 hours of light remain? Remember some strains take over 2 months of 12 hour light (each day) to grow to to their maximum potential (except autos). How big are your clones? How were these clones damaged? If you have them indoors, how long have they been inside since the accident?

    Yes you can put clones out and do decent still.

    Do it now though, like today.

    My harvest happens in early to mid oct as well. I've started clones in august for shits and giggles and ended up with 4 ft bushes no problem.

    They can come back but itll take weeks (maybe). If you want to put the other clones outside check your weather at weather.com to see if any more bad weather is heading your way in the forseeable future. If you decide to put your clones outdoor, harden them off first. Put them outside, 3 hours each day (then bring them back inside), do this for about one week then you can plant them or leave them outside (plastic pots heat up so fabric pots are best option if you decide to leave them in pots).

    They will definitely live through what happen. However your yield will definitely effected. Good soil and proper watering technique should have clones passing those ones up in a month tops.

    Any thing black traps/attracts light wich heats things. White or tan is better (White is best except when growing illegal. Dead give away.)

    I use black and do fine. My second wave of girls are still in 7s now. That's a good size pot for the unexpected late plant. You'll do great if you use good soil ....GL

    Top pic is from a couple days ago. Their in 7 gal started on June 17th bottom pic.....you'll be good
