August 3rd and only 12"..........
    #454558 - 08/03/10 02:58 PM (6 years, 4 months ago)

I have several sativa dominant clones that were put outdoors back in June (20th) and they have only grown about 8" each, is this normal or slow. I put them in a spot with poor daytime light, They do get at least 6 hours in the later part of day, this is when I actually planted them, an evening after work. They appear to be healthy, no insects, no discoloration, no nothing. I was expecting them to be bigger. Am I screw on getting much from them or will they kick into gear once flowering comes in a couple weeks? (based on your experience in this situation)

If your plants only get 6 hours of light a day I don't know why you would expect flowering to come in a couple of weeks.

I wouldn't expect much from outdoor plants if they only got 6hours of sun a day. I assume you have trees or brush to south of your plants?

6 hours of direct sunlight will be enough to grow/flower cannabis fine.  You might be doing something else wrong?

most likely the soil, didn't amend it, dark rich black soil, kinda compact though......maybe roots can't breathe?

Some strains auto flower when the roots being rootbound or have a hard time growing further into the soil. As far as I know it's rather rare but I've read a clone used by several breeders displays this characteristic the clone being Grapefruit.

hey guys, they are not flowering yet.........what I was trying to say is that around here they start flowering around august 15th (from what i have been told) because of shorter days. My concern is that they are so small

what kind of soil are you using? how big are the pots? or are you in the ground?

Most likely the soil.

cause this didn't receive anywhere near 6 hours of direct light a day.

ive seen my friend try to grow plants with about 5 hours of light, they were confused, deprived, poor little things that yielded next to nothing, and was hermie. simply put, your plants need as much light as they can get. you get what you put in...
