To late to start outdoor grow?
    #242200 - 06/23/09 02:56 AM (7 years, 5 months ago)

Is it to late to start an outdoor grow? I live in the upper midwest. I was thinking about planting some seeds outside. Any advice?

It shouldn't be too late for outdoor growing. Solstice was last Sunday, Sunset@ 8:30pm Sunrise@ 5:40am(EST). It's just the farther north you are, the sooner harvest season comes, and sunset comes earlier. Equinox is on Sept. 26th for 12/12 light. It is still always better to sprout indoors, then move out, but you should be ok.
I had to wait until weekend before last to transplant outdoors due to cold nights.

Good luck!:ganja:

If you started them indoors right away than yeah I think you could pull it off. You'll probably be looking at frost at the end of september or the first couple weeks or october.

    Its never to late to yeild something. Im a midwesterner aswell, If you do decide to start, give special attention to the heat. I find the plants do great when they are built up to temps of 95+ but if you threw a tray of seedlings outside where im at, theyd never make it.

So start them in a shaded area and let them get used to how intense it is outside right now.

My 2 tallest (probably male) plants have kicked the bucket do to high temps. But the rest of the girls are loving the extra love from the big HPS in the sky..

I encourage you start, the strong will survive and thrive.

Well see in the place where I'm starting the seedlings it will be close to 90 degrees anyway haha cuz of no air conditioner will that help them adjust to the heat when I put them outside?

For sure. theyll be born into high enviromental heat, not born into high heat from an intense light. But i would try to get them outside ASAP. Start them in paper towels, once you see the root breaking the seed, plant one each in clear beer cups, (to monitor root growth) after 3-4 weeks in cups you should be ready to be grounded.

Honestly if you were to start late late, I would say to skip the ground and leave them in cups, but thats if you plants in august or something...

So basically grow them inside for 3-4 weeks then put them outside? or plant them in cups and put the cups outside? If you meant grow them inside then how do I make sure when I put them outside that they wont die from the stress of the sunlight?

Go back in the archives of the grow journals and look for "From Seeds to Trees" It was my journal of outdoor last year. I germed my seeds on June 9th and 6-7 footers still at harvest and got 1.5 Lbs... Check it out for an idea of how long to grow them inside... I'd say up to 2 weeks should be fine! PM me if you have any other specific questions...

Where in Northern MW are you? I live in MN...

Nice! My GF is from there, I think it was near Cedar Rapids??? Does that sound right?  I'm thinking about going down there sometime this summer because her dad still lives there and I've never met him and have been dating his daughter for well over 2 years...  I would try to get together with ya' if you didn't live to far from her... You can just tell me NW, N, NE, E, SE, S.... whatever I don't need an exact location but it would be cool to meet a fellow growerian? Hah

Re: To late to start outdoor grow? [Re: Triptonic]
    #242426 - 06/24/09 02:37 AM (7 years, 5 months ago)

So I got a few more questions about growing outdoors.

1.) Where should I plant them, I read that parks arent a good idea cuz of the foot traffic, but I cant just go out to some farmers feild and plant them cuz I'm sure they will be found there as well. Not to mention that it would look funny if I parked there for long.

2.) Do I just put them in the ground with some decent soil?

3.) Should they get full sun, Part sun, or shade?

4.) Will they grow faster outside?

5.) How do you guys get soil down to where you are growing? backpacks?

6.) Should I plant it somewhere where there is a stream so I can get water or should I not worry about water and just let nature do its thing?

Those are very good questions and I can answer all of them in good detail... but im fairly wasted right now and the GF wants to talk....LOL.

I'll try to get back to you on all of those Q's in the morning, eh fuckit, probably early afternoon.  I want to help you as I feel as though I was in the exact situation as you 3 years ago... I'm glad I have someone to tutor as you seem to have a good understanding of how things work.

Talk to you tomorrow and you'll probably learn a few things... :smile:

Heres my attempt to answer your Qs.

1.Depending on how many plants you plan on, plant anywhere you know the foilage goes unkept. empty lots, back of feilds along lot lines, etc.

2.I use fancy soil when there in the cups but once they go in the ground its just plain old dirt.

3. Full sun to part sun. Cannabis loves direct sun, but its always nice to give them a brake at some point of the day, i plant north to south along tree lines, so the sun only gets them direct for the ladder half day when the suns moving west.

4. Yes. Youll be amazed at the sizes outdoors can reach. Personally i belive its more potent as well. (stonger plants)

5. I use what the earth has givin me.

6. My plants are outside from the begining of May to mid October, i water them MAYBE 4 or 5 times. It rains atleast once evry few weeks. Cannabis is a weed, people will tend to care to much for it and kill it. Let it do its own thing, its been surviving in nature for thousands of years without people bringing it water. Besides i find Marijuana doesnts like "wet feet", and is very sensitive to root rot. Do water in exceptional droughts though.

7 1/2. I was saying do the cup thing to start with, once youve verafied your plant count get them in the ground. And try to get them outside as early as possible, start them outside in cups, in shade for aweek or so, then on you go.

On another note.....GO CornHuskers!!
