Is there any way to force outdoor flowering?
    #390573 - 03/27/10 12:05 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Say I wanted to grow a plant or two but I wanted them to flower at a certain time, how would I go about doing that? I have been hearing tips such as covering them, but does that mean covering them only once to change the lighting cycle and start the flowering stage or would I have to keep covering them at the correct time throughout the entire process?

Basically what I am asking is, is there any way to grow and harvest 2 plants every couple of months from an outdoor grow. I just want to keep a steady amount of weed; no more than I smoke.

Thanks for your time!

No, not without a greenhouse or indoor grow. Once you trigger flowering you must continue with that light cycle 12/12. This is one of the many advantages of indoor growing, you can harvest continuously utilizing a veg and flower room, its called perpetual harvest search it.:stoned:

no but a good outdoor plant taken care of can yield 1-2 pounds+..

people use covers to trigger flowering earlier. it allows to harvest before teh cops start lookin:) i couldnt tell you how to do this on any scale but i guess all that work pays off. i cant imagine visiting 2 times a day. might just be for a month or so to get them going then by that time days shorten up and dont stress very much. i dunno

This is true.


I also wouldn't reccomend triggering flowering outdoors as its very easy to get hermaphrodites in the process with light leaks and inconsistant hours unless you uncover/cover same time each day and make sure cover pitch black inside

Well, to get started lights, nutes, ect ect.. you can spend anywhere from $600 to well over $1000 it all depends on what you buy or dont buy. If your handy you can utilize alot of DIY tecniques. The most expensive thing youll buy will probly be a HID setup which in the end pays for itself in one harvest.

If your looking for a shorter time frame or just want quick buds there are always the autoflower strains

if you do it like that, you should grow mostly sativa strains, or you'll have very little yield!

A cheap way to get what you want you can do this,

(seedlings, clones, 1 mother plant Bonzi style) 1, 100w CFL Floodlight by Lights of America $40 home depot

Build (wire) your own HPS or buy one 400w dont pay more than $200 for a complete HPS setup. I DO suggest however to splurge on a Hortilux bulb they are worth it they run between $70-80

Nutes, Cloning power or gel,  Fan/air (odor control, carbon filter optional) Pots, Soil/Soiless mix, (id recomend coco coir and General Hydroponics Floranova series)

PH Meter and EC Meter, PH up, PH down (optional but recomended)

Utilize a decient size rubbermad tub for veg or a empty closet or pop up closet, (walmart, rubbermaid pop closet, very simmilar to a hydro hut $20)

Use another closet or pop closet for flowering. Every few weeks (your option how many) take clones, veg for preffered time, move to flowering,

This way you have 3 plants at all times, 1 mother, 2 flowering one gets harvested every few weeks or week depending on what you choose. This dosent include clones in plant count since they spend 2 weeks only in veg (to root) if you choose to veg them thats ur choice however I would recomend it considering using this setup you plant count is low so you want each plant to produce a considerable amount, so you want a  larger plant and the longer you veg the bigger the plant is when placed into flowering. These are all things to think about and plan out to acheve a plant in plant out setup, or perpetual harvest. Also on another note, and probly the best investment, buy Jorge Cervantes, Marijuana Horticulture, The Growers Bible $25 Very very usefull, everything you need is in there and more.

With this youll spend minimal and will harvest enough to pay for itself in 1 harvest, using a perp harvest that can be every week or more or less.
And remember, you get out what you put in this is not a cheap hobby, at least not if you do it right.
