Planting a mother outdoors.
    #730942 - 05/10/14 08:19 PM (2 years, 6 months ago)

So, I'm thinking of planting one of my mothers outdoors to retire it.

The problem is, she is already a good 5/6 foot tall. How big will this plant get by the end of summer if that's her starting size?

How old is she? Ive put mothers outdoors that didnt grow much at all, all the laterals grew maybe 6-8 inches and budded out. The actual plant itself seemed to have stayed the same relative size.

But, I have also planted mothers outdoors that grew from 2-3 feet to 5-6 by the end of the season, effectively doubling size. I dont think you would need to worry about that with a 6 foot plant. I would plan for two feet of growth, and expect one.

A lot of variables there.  Depends on if your plot, whether they're in ground or pots, how well you prep the area, how much sun they get.  But I've seen the size of what you are starting at get a solid 12-15 feet tall.

Let's hope it stays under that, I think 8 feet is the tallest I can allow it to get.

It's been planted in ground, in very nutrient rich soil. (Cow manure that's been composting for 10+ years. At this point it's just solid black soil.) Amended some FF soil into the hole with the rootball(About 5 gallons of FF Soil.)

It will prob get sun most of the day, direct for at least 4 hours, indirect for the rest of the day. It's in a good spot.

It's also a 100% Sativa. (Purple Haze) lol
