If insects are the main worry, it might be okay. There are a couple of remedies which I've had good luck with on other plants. One is water with a little raw garlic juice in it, used to water the plant, and also as an occasional foliar spray. I probably use a little more garlic juice than the recipes I've seen call for, and I also sprinkle the juice pulp and dried skin from the garlic around the base of the plant. This has gotten rid of a root problem (that was turning the leaves yellow and killing them), and a creepy crawly problem for my tomatoes. Hopefully, it can work on mj, too.

if u r putting it directly into the soil, it will be a problem digging up up the plant after vegging then bringin it back inside. you could seriously damage the root system the most important time of growth. plus u could shock the plant by moving it from natural conditions into artificial(sometimes worse) conditions inside.
I would have it in a pot throughout it's life. But this shock thing has my attention. The conditions inside would be as close a simulation of outdoor conditions as I can manage: an oscillating fan going 24/7, 1 mh and 1 hps going, 12/12 light cycle, humidity same indoors as outdoors, similar indoor temp (avg. 85-87 F). I know the temp seems too darned high, but the outdoor temps here when the plant would be flowered would be higher. I could always bring the indoor temp down to 80 gradually over a period of a few days to try and minimize stress.
I wonder if these indoor conditions might keep shock to a minimum? This is very interesting.

I also had some of the plants herm out on me and got seeds to boot. That could have been bad genetics though, but it did happen.
So my best opinion is not do it if you can avoid it.

This thread kinda is confusing me....wouldn't it make a lot more sense to Veg inside and flower outside?
Yeah, that's usually the convention but as dosboot said, it's just out of curiosity we are discussing the idea. Also, in most climates it's easier to veg than to flower. In Ireland it can get very wet around harvest time so it's a nightmare for bud rot.

tips on moving- put a stake in the pot before the plant and tie plant down before moving and keep it supported. plant is a 5' by 5' fattie.
