Best thing is to find a farmers almanac, and follow the start dates for corn. If you grow in the corn field, you'll have to have it in about the same time, and out before they harvest the corn.

Farmers almanac....any bookstore, lowes, homedepot has them. I usually wait untill the last week of may, or first week of june.

So it would be too late now? :crankey:

But when I put this glass bong on the shelf and the wind knocks it over or my elbow brushes it off the table and it falls to the ground and shatters, I say, ‘Of course.’ When I understand that the glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious.”[/quote]

depends, If they are not even germinated yet, then yes it's probably too late depending on where you live......please dont tell me, i'd rather not know..LOL!!

If you have clones you have or can get, than you could still probably get them out, and do alright. Most people just want the most vegg time they can get outdoor, because it leads to a better yield.

OK, So now we have a mother plant, and if you read the cloning 101 thread, you know how to take clones and have transplanted the newly rooted clones into their new pot. Here is a shot of what my veg. space #1 looks like after a fresh batch of clones is put into it.


This is my current setup and unfortunately have nothing else going besides these plants, a few clones and my four mothers. Pics might be old ones because of this.

For the purpose of this guide, i will use 1 plant (a White Widow I grew last round) and take you through its life cycle and harvest. Here we go.......

During vegetative growth ( the growth cycle the plant produces leaves, and branches) the norm for lighting is more blueish lights, like the metal halide or cool white fluorescent. The light cycle is 18 hours on and 6 hours off. Now many growers say that 24 hrs of light gives you a faster growth rate, but i stick with 18/6.
You can leave a plant in veg indefinitely so long as you transplant when needed to prevent root bound pots.

Veg time is completely personal preference, but when it comes time to switch to flower, there are a few options you have.

You can either go straight to flower, by changing the timers to a cycle of 12 hours on and 12 hours off. Or you can turn the lights off and leave them off for 24 hrs. then turn the lights onto the 12/12 cycle. Either one is personal preference, but the 24 hrs. darkness version has been said to show faster signs of flowering, and more bud sites.

FLOWER TIME:

The day you switch the light cycle is not the day the countdown starts!!! The flowering time is usually between 7-10 weeks, depending on strain.

By this time you will want to stop using the high nitrogen veg. nutes, and will switch to the high phosphurous flower nutes. Remember marijuana seems to be able to take as much nutrients as you want to give it as long as it is introduced gradually over a period time.

Myself, being in a very north latitude have found that it's better to grow indoors until the mid/end of june for a healthy grow with little stunting as possible. The hymn for planting in NY says that it should be a knee-high by the 4th of July.

Fuck, I miss the Rockies! :cryariver:

Yes here in the midwest of the USA, we have the same rule of thumb of knee high by july, and use it for our sticky plant friends as well :smile:
I always take clones that are at least 9-10 inches tall outside around the first or second week of may, to ensure the frost is done.
If not and frost comes in i just cover them with a sheet overnight

I know this thread is old, but i wanted to add something to it . first off great write up thanks alot for the info, good stuff and right on point. i just wanted to give another option for fert during the seedling stage. A fert with a higher P content like a flowering formula is great for seedlings it helps with root development and keeps distance between internodes shorter. I like to use like a 2-4-1 at 30% its reg dosage along with superthrive 5 drops a gallon. Then i use tube flo lights on 24 hrs ,but 18/6 works ofcourse lol!!!

Everyone seems to be in the smoke lounge. I only started using growery just under a year ago, but it seems like it had a lot more traffic before I started visiting. I think growery could attract more new growers if they changed the colors to something slightly brighter or made the site look more like a hydro bottle or something. People have a strange attraction to brighter things.

BTW for germination... if you use generic paper towels, and they are all thin and get stuck together, try getting shoprite's generic paper towels or something really fluffy. I am so much happier using this shoprite generic shit than I was using stop and shops thin paper towels. They also make a nice cushion for the seed, which I wasn't getting with other shit. I actually put a roll away just for seeds since I never shop at shoprite.


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

NO DUDE....dont get me wrong, i agree with you the colors are dark like a weird brothel...:ooo:....just not on my list. I dont have any control or moderator role here, just alot of info from years of growing. I am more frequent on another site, and was led here years ago by someone working to create the site. I shared my info and got mad and left from noobs arguing with me about how to grow pot.
I didnt have the time to deal with at all, 175 plants in a room, with a 4x4 tent floor to ceiling with clones, will keep ya busy.

But I'm checking in more.

Any ideas on what is needed here on the site to make it better, as far as information, or other styles of growing??

I am familiar and experienced in LST, Mainlining, SOG, SCROG, Very little in hydro and water farms. I have done well with hempy, theres links here somewhere.

I have recently gained minor experience in the outdoor growing world, and really enjoy the thrill of doing it outside....:eek:...

I have a single plan grown from bag seed. I am new at growing however and jumped the gun late in the season and just used dirt from my yard mixed with some ash but I'm kinda worried about the soilqquality BC its so fine it kinda packs itself. Currently its in a clay pot maybe five inches deep and three or so inches wide. It seems to be starting to push a root out the hole in the bottom. I want to get some potting soil and break the clay pot to disturb the roots less and put in something biggest. Planning on moving it into a closet BC where I live temps are dipping into the 40s at night and the plant is still pretty small. Bout as tall as a bic lighter. What suggestions do you guys have? I did pick up a 24inch fluorescent grow light and timer so lighting source is covered.

can't sex the seeds as far as I know, and to sex the plant you could cut off one of the lateral branches(the part that isn't a large fan leaf) and put it in a cup of water under 12/12 light. After 10 days or so you can determine the sex usually.

As this was just a basic, start from scratch grow guide, it only goes into getting the grow room up and running. I would direct you towards the forums to search for sexing tutorials. If there is none here, let me know and i will work on making one up this weekend. You are very far from needing to sex your plants with the questions you have....REMEMBER TO PLAN BEFORE YOU PLANT....Save your self the wasted time of making the same mistakes thousands of other growers have done by reading, reading and more reading of forums.

Again let me know if we need a sexing guide here on the growery and i can make one up and post it this weekend. thanks!
