PNW guerilla advice
    #399172 - 04/10/10 06:45 AM (6 years, 6 months ago)

I'm thinking about getting an outdoor crop going this year... I've never done it before, and am barely experienced at growing cannabis, but I think I can handle it.

I have a few questions/considerations to bounce off you guys though....

Here's the tentative plan: 20-50 autoflowers to go outside in a wooded area in western Washington.  Groups of 2-10 attempting to look as inconspicuous as possible...  I'm kinda hoping for set-it-and-forget-it, and calling it a 100 dollar gamble (seeds, nutes, etc.)

Okay, I haven't done much research yet, so apologies for asking questions I can probably google...

First, Im thinking autoflower so that I may be able to produce a harvest in july or august, so that I don't have to deal with fall at all...  How is cannabis in the PNW area in the fall?  I Have this feeling it just doesn't work..

What are the odds I'll actually get away with a set-it-and-forget-it approach?  What are some things I should consider if I'm going to try for "automated" ?

What's the best way to handle males?  Timing my trip, pollen control etc.  I wouldn't mind having a group or two go to seed.  What's a respectable method for not pollinating accidentally (spacing, wind currents) ?

Any other tips, considerations, etc would be appreciated... What are some things I'm going to overlook while planning this?

Thanks guys... Grow on!  :jointsmile:

Heavily leaning Indica plants can finish outdoors in your region properly, but I can see why you would not want to gamble with letting them finish into October, especially with the mold problems some Indica's have.

You are going to have to cut the males relatively early if you don't want seeds because autoflowers begin showing sex quickly. I'd recommend sexing the plants before planting them outdoors if at all possible.

Its possible if you space the plants far apart you're plants won't end up being fully pollinated, but cannabis pollen can travel far in the wind.

Be sure to give them plenty of flower nutes, especially if you won't be able to tend to them often.

I'm also doing my first outdoor guerilla this year in the same region. I've learned a lot from my buddies the past couple years and their biggest mistake is planting too late. if you don't want to have to worry about mold, right now is the right time to get them out there.

So, lemme get something strait...  I can't decide which is right...

Small plant gets put in the ground late... Does it flower as soon as the season and lighting are correct?
OR, does it HAVE to reach sexual maturity before it will flower, regardless of season?

Also, is one month under the lights worth two outside?  Can I veg stuff indoors to compensate a little?

Also, would the 3' tall (average height), 75% indica BC God bud I have be a decent choice this year?

Thanks for the advice too guys... Any links or anything that might just jumpstart my outdoor knowledge as well?

And BTW,  Dungie, your avatars fucking represent man... :thumbup::thumbup:

Considering the price of clones or seeds, you are better off just using that money to buy weed than your approach.
