I planted my plants outside last week and there is a frost warning in my area. All my plants are about 1 foot tall is it possible for them to survive a frost? I am unable to shelter them or do anything to cover since i'm out of town til next week.

A frost certainly CAN kill MJ plants. I hope there is no certainty that it will, but it CAN.

^^^ exactly. the frast can hurt them but may not too. depends how bad realy. if your that worried just cover em with a frost tart or somhin. they can survive the temp but when the frost crystals start to form on the plant itself is when problems can occur.

In 2000, I harvested a 7oz plant on Thanksgiving day. GREAT smoke. Depends though...

This depends on the strain too, some are quite resistant. If your plants are one foot tall they should survive a moderate frost. Spring frosts are scary, frosts in the fall are different. Plants situated so as not to get the early morning sun in the fall will survive a heavy frost. If the air warms up and the plant thaws out before the sun hits it , most strains will be OK. It is when the sun hits frozen plants that fatal damage occurs.

My plants did fine in the frost, hopefully I don't get anymore scares like that!
